The main house has a sunny, enclosed courtyard. The perfect place for outdoor dining, al fresco breakfasts or a chilled glass of rose after a busy day sight-seeing. The whole property is walled, making it extremely private and quiet and safe for children.
The kitchen isn't enormous, but it has been recently refurbished to a high standard and is fully equipped, including having a large fridge and a big, range-style cooker. The lovely stone floors and the grey cupboards give a typically Provencal feeling to the room. There is also a separate WC just off the kitchen with a feature 'bucket-style' basin!
There are 3 bedrooms in the main house and they all have en-suite bath or shower rooms. The twin-bedded room is ideal for children and has a window over-looking the courtyard. It has its own walk-in shower, basin and WC and a large cupboard containing all the linen necessary for your stay.
Emotional Escapes presents Mas du Temps, a renovated farmhouse for summer holiday rental near Lacoste, in the South of France.
This stone-built property, full of Provencal character, has recently been lovingly and tastefully restored by the Parisian owners to provide high standard, comfortable accommodation. The main, two-storey house sleeps 6; there are two additional en-suite bedrooms which are accessed from the courtyard, perfect for anyone wishing for a little solitude, or to lodge a passing friend or perhaps a nanny/cook accompanying the main party.
Set in a large, partly wooded garden, this house is ideally located between the historic perched villages of Menerbes and Lacoste and is the perfect jumping-off point for visiting the many delights of the Luberon and the Vaucluse. Menerbes is a 10 minute drive away and therefore handy for all local shopping requirements, with the larger supermarkets at Coustellet some 20 minutes away. Designer Pierre Cardin has bought the Chateau at Lacoste, once the home of the famous Marquis de Sade, and has also invested heavily in other properties in the village, which celebrates with an annual music festival. The delightful market town of L'Isle sur la Sorgue, with its weekly market and myriad antique shops, is half an hour away.
Two hours of housekeeping will be provided on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
It is possible to rent the house in a four bedroom configuration from September to June. Please see the notes below the calendar on the Availability & Rates page.
