A very talented professional landscaper--the owner-- designed the 1.5H (3.7 ac) property, with lots of privacy and room for children and adults. Here is the front of the house. It is hard to see on the photos but there is a table and chairs out front.
The images used to create this property description have been provided by the owner or their representative.
Just Provence will be returning in the spring to carry out a professional photo shoot, as usual.
The pool measures 11 m x 4.5 m. Here at the end of the pool you can see the large "Plage" (beach) 2m x 4.5m where young and old can play and cool off in the 5"-6" water without going into deeper water.
A protected area to relax or eat by the pool. Here you see only a part of the almost 3 acres of property; there are views everywhere. To reach the pool from the house, you go up gentle, wide steps. The property is very quiet and private; there are no other houses nearby.
The kitchen and dining area are well equipped with range /oven, frig/freezer, microwave, lots of small appliances. There is a large closed armoire and an open shelf storage cabinet with lots of dishes and glassware.At the end of the dining table is a large butcher block work space.
The metal staircase in the back leads up to what is a third bedroom with twin beds. But when the owner completes the third en-suite bedroom this twin bedroom will become an office or study.
The Villa Cocagne is a very charming house situated in the countryside, less than 2 km to the village of Lourmarin. The setting is beautiful, tranquil and romantic, the perfect spot for a relaxing holiday. The 1.5 H (3.7 ac) property has a 360° view on the Luberon, the vineyards and the breathtaking Provencal countryside. The property has a large variety of trees, bushes and flowering plants and the 11 x 4.5m pool is located above the house on a vantage point so as to take advantage of the property and views.
The Provencal villa is an ancient house that was restored and lovingly furnished. There are currently two en-suite bedrooms in the ancient but renovated part of the house. In the fall/winter of 2016 the owners are adding a third en-suite bedroom on the opposite side of the house. It will also have doors leading to the exterior terrace and steps to the pool.
Air conditioning keeps the public areas--kitchen, dining area and living room--cool.
The property owners are very hands on and helpful. They meet you when you arrive and when you depart. Since they live and work locally they can be at the house in a few minutes if you have a question or problem.
