From the living room, a magnificent, winding, sandstone staircase leads to the large, second-floor office/library. A huge, sliding picture window offers a breathtaking view of the Luberon Mountains. An antique desk in front of the window provides a wonderful place to enjoy the landscape while you catch up on your correspondence or begin working on that book you have always wanted to write. There is also a double bed, a couch, and a daybed at one end of the large office area. There are English and French books, guide books, toys, games, and a Foosball/Baby Foot.

Exterior Description

A doorway leads from the second floor onto a terrace at the front of the villa that overlooks the Luberon Mountains. It is the ideal spot for watching the sunset while enjoying the local wine or for spectacular stargazing. The sheltered, southern exposure terrace off the living/dining room behind the house is the perfect place for breakfast or a romantic dinner. From the terrace, a few steps lead up to the pool and deck, bordered by a small garden with herbs, lavender, and a variety of flowers and shrubs.

A large rock marks the private road that leads past the cherry orchard to “La Jassine.” The name of the property means the wild boar’s lair in Provençal. This unique property at the base of the mountain enjoys complete privacy. In this beautiful country setting, you will enjoy the extraordinary light and colour of Provence that inspired artists like Van Gogh and Cézanne. The distinctive sound of the cigales and the intoxicating perfumes of wild herbs will delight your senses.

La Jassine is a peaceful retreat with breathtaking natural beauty in the heart of Provence, where fine restaurants, fascinating historical sites, and outstanding entertainment are easily accessible. Your stay at La Jassine may be your most memorable vacation ever.
