The enduring appeal of sun-drenched Provence
It has been 30 years since the bestselling book by British expat Peter Mayle got us all falling in love with southern France. A Year in Provence made is want to up sticks and buy a charming old farmhouse, grow our own food and enjoy the slow, languid life down in the Luberon. This ideal has never gone out of fashion so here we pick four properties that might be the start of a new chapter…
This three-bedroom country house is a beautifully renovated blank canvas. Charmingly traditional Provencal, it enjoy lovely views and lots of peace and privacy.
In Saumane-de-Vaucluse, this beautiful ancient four-bedroom village house with large terrace enjoy stunning views over the Provencal countryside.
Classified as an historic building, this unique property, once part of a foundry, is rather special. With five bedrooms and a swimming pool, it would make a great bed and breakfast or spacious family home.
Beautiful four-bedroom stone farmhouse in an historic setting with large garden, independent apartment, artist’s studio and 10 acres of woodland. Another great place for income-generation opportunities.
