Les Remparts - Garden

Garden & Pool

The house is blessed with a beautiful pool and garden over different levels, all with the most wonderful view from high in Bonnieux looking down the Luberon mountain and valley.

 

The pool is below the terrace of the middle floor (right), and both levels have amazing views.

The terrace outside the living room offers the best of the view (above right) and has a dining table and sunloungers, as well as electric BBQ. At lunch there is shade and the most spectacular time of day is when the sun is setting straight ahead and the valley turns from golden to violet to twilight.

 

The pool is on the level below the terrace and measures 8m x 3m (26 x 10ft) with steps at the shallow end. There is a seating area in the shade outside the summer living room (above left).

After the pool is the lavender bed and then the 'cloister garden' (above left) with olive tree in the centre, stone floor and dry-stone walls. A half-level above this is another outside sitting area under the deep shade of the vine-clad pergola (below left).

The house is in a quiet road by the castle ramparts, and has its own garage with automated door for one car. There is also free street parking by the house.
