La Bastide du Casellas
… Charm and tranquility on the outskirts of Lourmarin …
Recently renovated, Casellas is furnished with great care and has all the facilities and comfort you need for a harmonious holiday in a natural and relaxing environment. Private, without being isolated, it has a large swimming pool and vast land (1.5 ha) with panoramic views.
La Bastide du Casellas has an enviable location in Provence, at the foot of the Luberon mountains and 1.5km from Lourmarin, one of the “Most Beautiful Villages of France”, with its Renaissance castle, its cobbled lanes, famous weekly market and boutique shops and galleries.
This renovated “bastidon” or farmhouse for six people will seduce you with its exceptional 1.5ha of land surrounded by fields and hills. It is a refurbished old stone building with modern comforts and décor. Enjoy the solitude and privacy of the location nestled in the countryside near Lourmarin and Cucuron. Large private grounds offer space to spread out and enjoy the natural surroundings. The interior is open, airy and sophisticated while not at all pretentious. Relax at the outdoor dining table or around the pool in the large garden with lovely mountain view.
The house, which has wi-fi, air-conditioning and under-floor heating, is a single story with a mezzanine level. The spacious living room has armchairs and sofas and a 4m-wide bay window opening onto the garden. A large open-plan kitchen is equipped with dishwasher, hob, oven, microwave, fridge, toaster, kettle, and a large oak table and chairs.
Casellas has three bedrooms and three bathrooms. The main bedroom with 160cm double bed has a bathroom en suite, with shower, basin and WC. There is a beautiful second double bedroom, also with a 160cm bed. The two double bedrooms each have their own TV and DVD player. A third loft bedroom has twin 90cm beds. There is also a large mezzanine area that can accommodate an extra guest or two.
The large family bathroom has a shower bath, two basins, large mirror, cupboard, washing machine and dryer. There is a separate WC.
Outside there is a beautiful private swimming pool of 11x4.5m nestled in a garden on 1.5ha of land surrounded by hills and fields. There is plenty of shade, including a large arbour of trees and lovely shady areas around the house, including for parking cars.
In summer you’ll probably spend much of your time outdoors – choose from the separate picnic area, an outdoor lounge area and other outdoor seating and dining areas – there are 3 tables and 12 chairs, 4 sunbeds and 6 deck chairs outside, so there's plenty of choice!
There’s also a gas barbeque for grilling, plus a boules court and table tennis for entertainment.
