Les Seguins: a restored separate wing of an 18th century farmhouse faces south across a vast and spectacular private valley, planted with truffle oaks. Two minutes drive from the village of Buoux in the Luberon National Park and seemingly miles from anywhere with its wide open spaces, tranquility and wildlife, this lovely old house is equidistant between the market town of Apt and the medieval and exquisite town of Lourmarin with its galleries and restaurants.
The surrounding countryside is very well known for rock climbing and hiking and with a fabulous old chateau and an extraordinary medieval fort nearby, the area is also a painter and photographer's delight.
Nestled on several hectares of land with lavender fields, truffle oaks and natural bushland, Les Seguins is close to what one imagines in the picture books of Provence. It is a delightful two-storey stone house with sage white shutters and picture windows and doors framing beautiful views. Inside the house there are thick stone walls, tiled floors and exposed beams of traditional Provencal architecture. Because of its position light floods the house from morning until sunset. There is also a pretty swimming pool set away from the house which also boasts marvellous views.
On the ground floor there is a huge living room/kitchen with an old bread oven at one end with a fully equipped modern kitchen. Large doors open onto the terrace which is large enough to have a lunch party and a full-scale 'boules' game at the same time.
The bedroom has a queen/twin bed and a bathroom with 2 hand basins and separate w.c. On the first floor, accessed by external stairs, there is a queen-size bedroom with ensuite, two hand basins and separate w.c. and a third bedroom with twin beds, private bathroom with two hand basins and separate toilet. There is also a small sitting room with TV and fireplace.

and in good order or the right is reserved to charge €92.
