Les Chapelins - Garden

Garden

Courtyard. Pool with Bonnieux in the background.

Outside the property is substantial, with 3.5 ha (8.6 acres) of land, going from the shelter of the courtyard, to the pool area, to lawn and meadow, vineyard, and even the wooded, terraced hill behind with its own private country walks. It's a microcosm of Provence countryside.

The pool's sliding cover disappears completely. Courtyard at night.

The courtyard offers shelter from wind, and maximises the view with an opening by the outdoor dining table, which is shaded by a pergola with climbing rose and wisteria.

Wherever you are there are dramatic views, at various points including the villages of Bonnieux, Gordes, Lacoste, Goult and Roussillon, and the Luberon plain extending from the Luberon mountain to the white-topped Mont Ventoux.

 

The pool area also has great views over the surrounding countryside, the pool is 12m x 4m (39 x 13 ft) and has a motorised hard cover for security.

There is plenty of private land to explore, with lawn, meadow and hill on the doorstep.

The house is accessed along a private path between vineyards, and there is plenty of parking on arrival.
