A beautifully converted 19th century farmhouse, combining old features with new comforts like modern bathrooms and a heated pool. The house is in easy walking distance of one of the best villages in the Luberon, and with 6 spacious suites it can sleep anything up to 20 with kids.

Living Rooms

The elegant ground floor is made up of the kitchen, dining/sitting room, living room, wine cellar, ping pong room, games room, laundry room and guest WC.

Kids and teens love the ping pong room, with its vaulted ceiling, seating and TV. There is a further games room with a selection of board games. There is also a guest WC on the ground floor.



Bedrooms

There is a lot of flexibility in how many the house can sleep. There are 6 spacious suites, some with extra beds, sofa-beds and bathrooms, so as many as 20 can be accommodated if there are children in the party. Upstairs in the main body of the farmhouse are 4 spacious suites with bedroom, sitting room, bathroom and outside space. The annexe building (formerly the stables) has two more large suites, which are more like 2-bed apartments.

 

Suite 1 and its en suite bathroom with bath and shower, and (below right) its sitting room.

Suite 1 (above and right) is accessed up the stone staircase from the living room. The bed is made up of two mattresses and is 1.8m/6ft wide, and can also be configured as two singles. The bathroom has clawfoot bath, walk-in shower, double basins and WC.

The suite has a separate sitting room with breakfast-making facilities, and this opens out to a patio with table and chairs.

To the back of the main farmhouse is an annexe with two further suites, 5 and 6, each comprising a bedroom with its own bathroom, and a mezzanine bedroom above a sitting room, with its own downstairs bathroom. The mezzanine levels are open to the sitting room below so these are less private than a regular bedroom.

Because of the staircases to the mezzanines the upstairs beds are not suitable for young children or people with restricted mobility. They are best suited to teenagers.

Scenes from the village of Goult, in the heart of the Luberon.
