Near to the village of Lourmarin.
Large 36 acre estate of olive groves and vineyards, planted with cyprus,
figs and pines and offering wide views of the Luberon mountain.
The owners, passionately interested in architecture and the art of living,
have restored this old house in a spirit of simplicity,
paying particular attention to the notions of space, calm and light and using only pure natural materials :
stone, lime, concrete, wood and linen.
Bruno and Michèle love culture and agriculture.
Very attentive to ecology, they apply to produce organic olive oil, as well as almonds, pomegranates, hazelnuts, figs.
Michele planted the fruit trees found in the Odyssey.
