Domaine deLuxe, Alpes-de-Haute-Provence, France Vacation Rental
This Domaine deLuxe is a wonderful storybook Provence House that was restored from a historical wine barn into a stunning luxury vacation rental in the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence on 120 acres of one of the most beautiful valleys in Southern Provence. A mix of amazing woods and luxurious interiors makeup the majority of the house, then combined with the stunning interior design that is worthy of a 5 start Luxury Resort Rating. You enter into a gorgeous modern home that from the exterior appears to be simply a "Resorted Domaine" but in turn it's a hidden gem.
There are six double bedrooms luxurious rooms to comfortably accommodate up to 14 guests. The house and garden wing have been decorated to exacting specifications, providing a holiday with a standard of living you are comfortable with. The property benefits from a charming live-in couple who can help with everything from housekeeping to concierge. The living space in the main house runs the full length of the building, from the grandeur of the salle des fêtes and the intimacy of the bar, to the twin islands of the open plan, professional kitchen and the comfort of the fumoir cinema space. The contemporary feel of the ground floor is complemented by 18th century fireplaces and the ancient wine tanks.
While the living areas of the main house are open plan for a wonderful social feel, they also have smaller salons and sitting areas for those cozy, calm, self-indulgence moments we all need either for a movie or a good book. With two open fires and under-floor heating, the house feels warm and welcoming even during the crisp autumn and winter months.
The kitchen area is fit for the most talented of the chefs in your group and has been designed for those who love to cook and those who love to be cooked for. The stunning modern design sits nicely against the open windows shining in the light and bringing the views of the valley and mountains into your space as you cook. There is also a wonderful sit in area for breakfast, large setup area for events if you needed. Should you wish to have some help preparing your meals, or a chef to do the job for you, arrangements can easily be made.
The ground floor and garden wing have direct access to the gardens, pool area, courtyard and tennis courts. The large windows and doors help to bring the outside in during the balmy summer days and evenings. The garden wing has a less-formal sitting and games room (the salle des jeux); a luxurious, casual snug and play area to get away from the crowd.
About The Area
A thousand years of history combines with one of the last unspoilt Mediterranean landscapes to create an atmosphere nearly as intoxicating as the new generation of excellent local wines Foodie delights can be found in abundance.
Provence's Southern Region is now one of the most rewarding travel destinations in southern Europe - yet still feels charmingly undiscovered. From broad white-sanded Mediterranean beaches to the foothills of the Pyrénées; from the languor of Louis XIV’s engineering masterpiece - the Canal du Midi - to the ramparts of la Cité in Carcassonne, it’s a paradise for the body and the soul. From the food to the historical farms you can visit and arrange wine tours, it's simply one of the most beautiful areas to visit. You can drive to beaches within 45 minutes or less, find yourself in little towns every few minutes and just enjoy the countryside for it's beauty and charm.
