About the property

L'Eau Salée

3 km from Malaucène in the Vaucluse, l'Eau Salée, magnificent south-facing Provençal 'mas' built in 1783, secluded, protected from the Mistral, peaceful, a panoramic view of the Dentelles range, the ideal spot to recharge one's batteries. A perfect destination for cyclists and hikers, with the summit of the 6,000 ft Mont Ventoux less than 30 min' drive away. Close to Vaison-la-Romaine, a featured destination in the French 'Most Beautiful Detours of France' guide-book, with its picturesque old medieval quarter and Roman remains, numerous artists and craftsmen, and its busy Tuesday market. Nestling in a small private valley with not another house in sight, at L'Eau Salée you can either enjoy our large 16m x 6m pool with ping-pong table, or take a siesta in the shade of lime blossom and walnut trees. Former home of the famous French singer-actress Brigitte Fontaine, who described L'Eau Salée as her 'little corner of Provençal paradise'.

The property is very extensive, with several independent entrances, and accommodation which can be divided off (independent kitchens and bathrooms). For group reunions, should you wish to retain a degree of privacy for each family, L'Eau Salée is the ideal location. You can also have a party at one end of the property, without being able to hear the slightest noise at the other end.

About The Owner

A translator and interpreter from Yorkshire in England, having lived in France much of my life, I now spend part of the year in France and the remainder in SE Asia.

The Owner purchased this farmhouse in 1994

Why The Owner chose Haut-Vaucluse

My family fell in love with this property at first sight. It had everything - peace and quiet, yet proximity to local services and amenities. Beautiful mountains and countryside, skiing, cycling, and a wonderful climate. An ancient property with so much character, springs and wells, fertile land. Such a great place to bring up a young family.

The pool is shared with the occupants of the second gîte, unless of course a large group (up to 22 people) rents the entire property, in which case you have the pool entirely to yourselves. The 'Tilleul' gîte's garden and terrace nestles under our south-facing small private hill covered with olive and green oak trees, ensuring complete protection should the northerly Mistral wind blow. As well as the kitchen-diner inside the gîte, there is an outside summer kitchen, equipped with freezer, fridge, hotplates and washing machine. Attached to the summer kitchen is a converted small former barn, open to the setting sun, equipped with a stone pizza oven and BBQ, table and chairs for dining outside. The Provençal lounge has a convertible bed settee which can sleep two people.
