Le Portail Rouge, Luberon, Provence

Overview

The house is located in the vineyards between the villages of Menerbes, Gordes, Roussillon and Lacoste — the most exclusive spot of the Luberon Provence, near theater and music festivals, the charming farmer market of Coustellet, the authentic village life of Menerbes portrayed by Peter Mayle, the Marquis de Sade castle in Lacoste, the red earth and canyons of Roussillon, and the majestic splendor of Gordes and the nearby cistercian monastery Abbaye de Senanque. 11 rooms on three floors and 300 M2 around a large courtyard, restaured by artists. You will find a Steinway B grand piano, artworks, rare furniture, as well contemporary as antique, and also a Klafs Sauna. In this house, everyone can find his private space during the day — near the ancient well in the garden, beneath the giant Linden tree, in the courtyard or on the terrace, before everybody comes together for dinner — in the garden, the courtyard, or by the fireplace in a rustic vaulted space.

Summary:

A beautifully restaured provençal farmhouse in the vineyards at the heart of the Luberon, between Gordes, Roussillon and Menerbes, hosting up to 12 pe

The home and property are spacious, comfortable, and welcoming. Full of interesting corners and vantage points. Restful and invigorating at the same time. Great location.

"La proprietà è ottima da tuttti i punti di vista (contesto geografico, accesso, architettura). Possono migliorare le attrezzature interne (biancheria ecc.)."Giulia C. (Italy)"enorm charmante hameau, sfeervol, vol met moderne kunst, antiek"Robert A. (Netherlands) "A fascinating, eclectic, beautiful, art-filled farmhouse in the vineyards. The beautiful courtyard outside the kitchen. Everything you need is in the house. More suitable for adults. A most enjoyable stay."Patricia T. (Switzerland)"La maison est trés bien situé dans une région magnifique. L'intérieur est trés agréablement aménagé, c'est parfait pour 6 avec des enfants en bas âges."Olivier L. (France)"The house is quite beautiful - and enormous! - set amongst the vineyards and hills of the Luberon. It is within 20 minutes of many of the most visited Provencal villages. Both the owner, Balthasar, and his "caretaker", Tobias, who served as our informal guide to the region on several occasions, were delightful to deal with. It is a beautiful home with a lovely terrace and garden, and we had a sublime time there. Recommendable!"Robert H. (United States)"Une maison qui a une âme, beaucoup de charme et où il fait bon se laisser vivre..."Madame Estelle R. (France)
