Lambesc Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

7 Bedrooms in exquisite mansion, in lovely countryside near Aix en Provence

Fantastic and very spacious, recently renovated and very well equipped, luxurious and comfortable 18c property with 7 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms. Walled and enclosed garden with heated swimming pool, surrounded by fields. Very child-friendly. Only 20 minutes from the Luberon and 20 minutes from Aix en Provence. A perfect location being so close to many cultural and historical places of interest.

Ferme du Val is located between two picturesque villages. The building dates from the 18th century, a traditional stone "mas" which was originally the main farm serving the nearby chateau. The house is situated in peaceful, open countryside, within 25 acres of grounds. Both the house and the heated pool are enclosed within a walled garden creating a secluded and very private and peaceful environment. The grey/green shuttered house is flanked by large "platane" trees creating shady areas. All bedrooms have wonderful views out to the beautiful open countryside. It is a perfect location for a holiday.

The lawned gardens are on two levels, the lower with a large south facing terrace between the house and the pool. There are 2 options for outside dining: either by the edge of the pool underneath the shade of an arbour covered with vines – the grapes are edible! or there is a terrace situated behind the house, bordered with flowers and herbs, with a large gas bbq. The pool is 12m x 5m, heated, ozone treated, not chlorine, pool house with WC, shower and changing room, lots of sunbeds and parasols.

The farm has been meticulously renovated and is full of many beautiful antiques and paintings whilst providing elegant, luxurious, spacious and comfortable accommodation with the benefits of fully equipped modern kitchens and bathrooms. The many facilities include UK satellite tv/dvd, wifi / telephone and mp3 speakers. Furthermore the house lends itself very well to an out of season holiday with the benefits of full central heating, open fireplace and heated swimming pool. Ample garaging, bbq, table tennis and boules. Sleeps 14 people very comfortably in 7 double bedrooms.

Ground floor: American style open kitchen/sitting room with dishwasher, microwave, etc plus sofas and open fireplace. Leading to cloakroom, and WC. Through to vaulted dining room. Arch through to large galleried hall with door leading off to another fully fitted kitchen and laundry room.

First floor: stairs leading to galleried library/reading area. Master bedroom with ensuite bathroom with shower, with 4 huge windows overlooking the garden, stone stairway access to gardens. Two further double bedrooms overlooking the gardens. Bathroom with shower. Steps leading to shower room. Huge beamed sitting room with “office area” and panoramic views.

Second floor: spacious beamed twin bedroom. Two further double bedrooms. All rooms having magnificent views of countryside. Large bathroom with bath and shower. Steps leading to additional shower room.

Independent studio (part of main house)–sitting room with kitchenette leading to double bedroom with en-suite bathroom with a walk-in shower.

This house also lends itself perfectly for families wishing to take a sabbatical in Provence as the International schools are only a 30 minute drive away. Available for long term and short term rentals. Guardians live on site to maintain the garden and the pool (and babysitting!)

About Georgie Causton

I originally lived in London, working as an Office Manager but came to Provence on a sabbatical in 1999 and never left!

Georgie Causton purchased this chateau / country house in 2000

Why Georgie Causton chose Salon area

We walked through the gates and both said "wow"! It's got a very special ambiance, very spacious but still has a cosy and homey feel about it.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

Lovely and quiet setting in the middle of the countryside yet not far to Aix en Provence and the International Schools and of course the excellent restaurants, shops and markets. Heated pool, walled garden, boules area, walking and cycling direct from the house.

Beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

We had the most fantastic week here. The owner could not have been more helpful and the managers on site were brilliant. The house was clean, comfortable and very well maintained with a wonderful swimming pool.

Fantastic home in a great region of Provence

  • 5 of 5

The house is an impressive Mas located outside of St. Cannat in the heart of Provence about 25 minutes from Aix en Provence. The location is fantastic due to it's proximity to the Aix region, the Luberon to the north and all of the locations to the west that are great to visit. The listing was accurate, the house is very well maintained as is the pool and the grounds. The owners strive to make sure everything is taken care of and all questions are answered. I have recommended this property to others.

Wonderful space for a group trip to Provence.

  • 4 of 5

Great private location in the heart of Provence. The house has many nice amenities; well equipped kitchen and a variety of areas in which to dine or simply relax. Our group enjoyed the excellent outdoor spaces. Owner was great to work with and made some excellent recommendations. This is good rental for larger groups looking to visit Provence
