Mostly renovated Provencal farmhouse or mas, with land, close to Gordes and L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue, 30km from Avignon TGV. Offering superb views of the Luberon hills. Potential income, land and accommodation.
This traditional Provençal farmhouse or "mas" has been partly restored to a very high standard, proving a beautiful 3 bedroomed home. The outbuildings which have not yet been touched offer many possibilities including guest accommodation. The ground floor has been designed to be open-plan, which gives a wonderful modern feeling of light and space, whilst the antique doors and Provençal kitchen retain a traditional charm. There is also a stunning central fireplace that separates the large kitchen/dining room from the lounge area. Behind the kitchen is a very practical utility room and separate WC. The ground floor also benefits from under-floor heating.
On the first floor are 3 large bedrooms and large bath and shower room, The bedrooms all have the original "tomette" floors - the beautiful deep-red terracotta tiles, typical of the region. The bathroom has a large bathtub, double sinks and an Italian shower.
The house is set in gardens of 1800 m², offering lovely views of the Luberon hills, and behind the house are a further 13,000 m² of good, level farmland – the house can be purchased with or without this extra land. The nearby town of L'isle-sur-la-Sorgue – famous for it's water wheels and vibrant market are less than 8 kms away and offer access to all shops and amenities – there are also some shops less than 2 kms away in the local village.
Attached to the main house are various outbuilding and dependences which, if also restored could double the surface area of the main house or provide excellent holiday-rental accommodation. The house currently has an aboveground pool, but there is plenty of space in the large grounds to construct a sunken pool.

The Vaucluse is an inland department of the Provence-Alpes-Côte-d'Azur region, and accommodates just under a half a million people. The department contains some of the most picturesque villages and unspoilt countryside that southern France has to offer, and places like Avignon and Orange are now considered quite trendy holiday spots for both the French and foreigners alike.
Avignon has some amazing ramparts, beautiffuly preserved, and a city teeming with history, culture and gorgeous architecture. The old lanes of Avignon are a treat, and there are many antique dealers should you want to purchase a small piece of local history. From the top of Avignon's ramparts one can survey the stunning Rhône Valley. From here it is easy to appreciate the town's strategic significance and its command over the surrounding region.
The town of Orange is located in the northern Vaucluse, amidst a formidable landscape, packed with lush vegetation, pine forests and towering mountains. It is reknowned for producing a large amount of honey. The town's name reflects the fact that the majority of the town's buildings are distinctly orange in colour. In 1530, Orange began to lend its trademarked colour to Holland, Northern Ireland, The Orange Free State and Orange, New Jersey.
To the south of the department, Luberon is a famous area, reknowned for quaint, typical french villages and magnificent castles.
The department does not have its own international airport as yet, and so Nimes or Marseille are the nearest airports, offering relatively easy access into the department. The train is also easy to access with TGV links to both cities as well as onward to Paris.
French houses and villas in this department are very desirable, and the proximity to the coast has an inevitable effect on property prices. The increased popularity of the area means it is often difficult to find any bargains or properties that need renovation, but stunning luxury homes and prestige properties are instead the order of the day!
