Bastide Jolie is a marriage of days gone by and modern times. It perfecttly portrays the ideal balance achieved by a restoration that has respected the original character. The use of local materials, chattels and inspiration, along with the owner's love of Provence, has given this Bastide a new lease on life for others.
Ideally located between the beautiful villages of Lourmarin and Cucuron, this elegant and simple Bastide is set on a large 36 acres estate of olive trees and vineyards, planted with cypresses, fig trees and pine trees, it offers stunning views on the Luberon hill.
The owners, passionately interested in architecture and art of living, have restored this old house in a spirit of simplicity and elegance paying particular attention to space, calm and light and using only pure and natural materials: stones, lime, concrete, wood and linen.
An interior courtyard punctuates the entrance of the property via an elegant wooden door. It features a covered galleria, offering protection from the mistral and is adjacent to the well appointed kitchen. This area is particularly suitable for dinners al fresco.
