Suite Lacoste - Garden

Garden & Pool

 

The apartment is in 2.8 ha of land (7 acres), with a big lavender field at the front visible from every room. Next door is a separate 1-bedroom rental, Suite Bonnieux, with its own patio and side garden. To the back, on the other side of the courtyard and facing in a different direction is Apartment Gordes. The pool is shared (if those units are occupied).

The pool is 13m x 7m (42 x 23ft) and has a heat pump to add some degrees in the shoulder season. By the pool is a poolhouse with barbecue and lounging furniture.

At the front the apartment has its own terrace facing south with shaded dining table and sun loungers. At the back the courtyard opens out to provide a perfect boules/petanque court under the plane trees, around a fountain.

Beyond the lavender field in front of the house are the two hill-top villages of Bonnieux and Lacoste, and the Luberon mountain.These medieval villages (below) have been facing each other across the valley for well over 1000 years.
