Mas de l'Olivier - Garden

Garden & Pool

The house is set around an inner courtyard, and beyond that are garden and terrace, with shaded dining and relaxing, over three acres of land and the heated pool.

 

The heated pool is on a raised lawn at the back of the house.

The pool is 10m x 4m (33 x 13ft) and heated from May to October. It has a pool alarm in line with French regulations, and also a gate and wall which is designed to keep toddlers out. Around the pool are lawn and sunloungers, and the shade of the trees.

 

The terrace with pergola is to the back of the house next to the pool area.

The terrace (above) is sheltered by a large pergola and has a dining table and BBQ, and a summer lounge.

 

You can also eat inside the centuries-old courtyard (below) to the gentle sound of the fountain.

 

The courtyard, paved with stone, is the heart of the house.

The courtyard is the open-air 'room' at the heart of the house. Living room, kitchen and bedroom 2 open out to this space, with its stone-paved floor and sculpted olive tree.

Steps leading up to bedroom 2 from the courtyard. Courtyard and living room at night.

 

The land is planted with truffle oaks, pines, olive trees, fig and lavender, and has beautiful views of the countryside and the Grand Luberon.
