Overview

Grambois Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, farmhouse, sleeps 8-10, floor area 250m2,12mx6m pool,

Le Sautaire is a traditional Provencal farmhouse carefully restored, spacious and cool. It provides ample accommodation for 8 to 10 people, with four spacious double bedrooms, two salons, two studies and a fully equipped kitchen with a Lacanche stove. It is has an acre of mature garden, surrounded by 20 acres of its own vines, set in a peaceful valley. Terraces around the house give panoramic views of Mte Ste Victoire and the Luberon. The garden offers seating in sun and shade, with places to escape to read a book or snooze. Swim or lounge around the 12mx6m heated pool edged with wide wooden decking, set in the garden overlooking the vines. .

The house is light and airy with views of countryside in all directions. The through kitchen, dining, sitting room is the hub of the house with French windows leading onto the south terrace with a table seating a dozen, a place for everyone to gather. A sweeping staircase takes you to the four bedrooms which lead off the upper salon all having high beamed ceilings. Each is furnished with French and English country antiques, but modern beds and shower rooms! Traditional thick walls and shutters keep the house cool in the hottest summers.

The house is situated in the Luberon National Park in the midst of an area of charming chateaux, medieval villages, Provençal markets and cultural activities. It is a beautiful part of the world, backed by the Luberon with its fine walking, a rolling countryside of vineyards, long views and the amazing light of Provence.

Grambois, an unspoilt 14th century 'village perché', is within walking distance with a boulangerie, mini-market and cafe-bar, whilst the hamlet of Moulin de Pas at the foot of the hill has a boulangerie, greengrocer and pharmacy, and the Grambois ‘cave’ with a good selection of wines – try the merlot rosé, it will include some of our grapes. . The local town of Pertuis, a 15 minutes’ drive, offers a full range of shops including two hypermarkets.

The Luberon villages of Lourmarin, Bonnieux and Gordes and towns of Apt and Forcalquier all have a typical French ambience. Aix en Provence and Avignon make pleasant day trips.

We provide details of local activities, the Provençal markets, one locally every day; restaurants, with guidance to quality and price; activities for children; sports and cultural events. At Le Sautaire you will find leaflets about local events, guidebooks and maps to plan your walking or visits. We have produced information sheets on favourite places with one a tour of local vineyards for degustation.

We renovated Le Sautiare for our retirement and manage to spend a week a month there throughout the year. So you will find a much loved house equipper for family living.

Other people have loved it too:

We had a fantastic time... and love the house and setting. We loved the fabulous views towards Mnt Sainte Victoire.. wonderful in the evening with a glass of wine! and the garden is lovely, particularly the perfect mixture of shade and sun. Sally August 2013

As keen cooks and foodies, we really appreciated your very well equipped kitchen.. we had some wonderful family meals, usually after visiting the markets, the St Martin de Brasque Sunday market and Aix were our highlights. Sara August 2013

We all loved the garden particularly (and seeing a deer in it one morning!). The children loved the different secret sitting places and the way land wrapped around the house. Everyone loved the pool design and said it was the best ever. Martha (2 1/2 and Hadrien (3) played for hours in the baby version! And it was big enough for competitions for teenage boys and Fergus (10) who tries to be one! Ros July 2013

Guestbook comments from the owner

I just wanted to let you know that we had the most wonderful stay at Le Sautaire and thank you for all your advice and information about the area and house which was very helpful.

We have fallen in love with the house, which is beautiful and the surrounding area too. The children are already asking me to book it again for next year! Everything was perfect, from the amazing kitchen to the fantastic gardens and mouthwatering figs! Not forgetting the local wine and wonderful food from the markets.

Owner's Response: Thanks Sue, I am glad you found the information useful, we don't want visitors to miss out on interesting local places and activities. We love the garden and the view. Coming again but in June or July you would enjoy a 'river of lavender' which edges the lawn with the outline of Mnte Ste Victorie beyond it.

Golden wedding celebration

  • 5 of 5
We had our Golden Wedding celebration here in July 2013 with all the children & partners and grandchildren. Our ages ranged from 2 - 86 years! We cannot praise it too highly. The property is stunning with comfortable rooms and we particularly enjoyed the cleverly landscaped gardens with 'individual' places to sit and read, or play boules. We had a week of near perfect weather and ate almost every meal outside. We loved the swimming pool, which was a great length for serious swimmers, and with the 'baby' pool alongside where the little people could play in safety. The teenagers went canoeing and rock climbing and had great fun at Lac St.Croix. We went to local villages for attractive markets. We had plenty of drivers so took it in turns to do the morning croissant run. The whole property has a lovely feel of a relaxed family house with a modern touch of good Wi-Fi connections! Accurately described and we would recommend it wholeheartedly.

Owner's Response: We are delighted Ros and her family enjoyed their stay. Our spacious house and large garden has welcomed many three generation groups with room and activities for all. It is special enough to mark an important celebration. The baby pool is a particular attraction for families with small children, for a safe and happy holiday.

Beautiful house in amazing surroundings

  • 5 of 5
We were two families with children staying for a week. We found the accommodation spacious, very comfortable and easy to live in. The gardens and pool area were beautiful and we spent many hours relaxing in the sun admiring the amazing vineyard surroundings and views of the mountains. Jenny was very helpful and emailed us lots of detailed information and recommendations about the area, we found this so useful and had some great trips out. We particularly enjoyed Val Joanis vineyard and the world class ice cream parlour with views to die for.There is so much to see in the area and lots of local Provence markets happening all around, we were sometimes torn between chilling out at Le Sautaire and heading out to see some more. There was plenty of outdoor space for the children to play for hours (gazing endlessly into the frog pond) and good terrace space for all our meals and evenings. One thing we particularly liked about Le Sautaire - although the house is owned by Brits, it has a lovely authentic French feel. I would recommend the property to a friend or relative.

Grambois lies on the south slope of the Luberon in rolling open vine-growing country 30 mins North of Aix-en-Provence, in 45 minutes from Marseille airport, 35 minutes from Aix TGV station. Le Sautaire is close to the famous Luberon villages of Menerbes, Roussillon and Gordes and the antiques capital of France, Isle sur la Sourgue. Visit a different maket each day in a tiny mediaeval village. The local scenery is outstanding and spectacular sites such as the Gorges du Verdun and the Fontaine de Vaucluse are within driving distance. The mediterranean coast is an hours drive away. There is excellent walking for everyone on local footpaths or Grandes Randonnées. Children can roam safely from the house. Maps provided. Cultural festivals include music at Aix-en-Provence and the piano festival at Roque D’Antheon. And then there is the wine! Each village has its ‘cave’ and there are many ‘Chateaux’ where sampling is on offer. Guides to vineyards and local restaurants are provided.

Other Activities: The house has a court for boules and volley ball

Golf: The views of four fanatical Irish golfers! “We played golf on some of the finest golf courses anywhere – way ahead of what we expected.” Pont Royal, a Seve Ballesteros designed course, ranks with any championship course in the world. Not to be missed. 40 minutes drive. Aix – Marseilles, a flat course with some splendid holes no buggy needed, 45 minutes. Pierrevert, a wonderful course. The views are stunning, it is set out in completely natural hillside terrain; you will need to be fit if not taking a buggy. 20 minutes
