Why Andree Falconer chose Puget
Location, location, location!
Character, construction (cool in the summer, cosy in the winter thanks to its 45cm thick solid stone walls).
Its idyllic setting in the south of the majestic Luberon Park; you can stroll directly out from the farmhouse into the hills and mountains of the Luberon, through the forest, the valleys, the summits, the springs, and as you walk, the air fills with the unforgettable scents of rosemary, thyme and summer savoury and the vistas and topography are quite simply breathtakingly beautiful, as is the Provencale light.
