Description

Villa for rent Provence for 7 people

    What we like

    Views: from the north side of the house, you overlook the bell tower of the 11th century church Notre Dame de Beauvoir with its 12th century Roman Nave. And, from the south, you can gaze upon the beauty of the Luberon mountain.
    Once Upon A Time: lovers of history won't be able to resist this unique home which has the power to take you on a journey back in time. 
    Location: the village of Grambois, renowned for its Medieval past and notably the presence and activity of the Knight Templars, is right on your doorstep. 

    La Maison Seigneuriale, "Grambois Manor" was the former home of Lord Roquesante. The house was built in the 17th century on the fortifications of the village of Grambois with parts of the house and cellars dating back to the 14th century. It has been restored and furnished over a period of several decades by its present owner and is one of the most authentic examples of a Provençale Renaissance home adapted to contemporary living. On the ground floor, a corridor connects the main house with the annex, an older Renaissance building which used to be the old school house. Between the two buildings is what remains of the earlier 14th century construction which incorporates the defence fortification walls of the village. Beneath this narrow passage is an old citerne à vin, a Medieval wine vat with its original glazed tiles. The floors of the main house are linked with a listed spiral staircase with vaulted ceilings decorated with 19th century neo-Gothic plaster work. The furnishings inside the house include Renaissance chimney pieces, two 18th century signed terracotta Provençale grain jars and medieval wall tapestries.

    The village and house feature in Yves Robert's film "My father's glory" (based on the novel by Pagnol "Le gloire de mon père" et "Le chateau de ma mère") and, more recently, Gerry Fox's film "Mother's Milk".


    Exterior

    The house has three outdoor spaces: the lower ground level with pool and sunloungers, ground-floor balcony and upper terrace with views outside the upper kitchen. The balcony has a dining table and barbecue, and is shaded overhead by vines... with figs and grapes in easy reach. The panoramic second-floor terrace has tables and chairs from which you can overlook the rooftops of Grambois and its surrounding landscape.

    Pool

    This private 5.5m x 5.5m pool is reached by a staircase from the ground-floor balcony.

    Interior

    This grand, Renaissance house in the centre of the village of Grambois would have been the most important house in the village, and was built around 1700 by Lord Roquesante, with some parts going back to the 1300s. The house is set over 4 floors, all with country views, and features a terrace with a sweeping 360° view of Provence. It has been expertly restored with historical accuracy, with original doors and fireplaces, and has the ambience of living in a small chateau. There are two kitchens in this luxury property, one on the ground floor by the dining room and balcony and the other on the top floor by the top terrace, so you won’t have to walk far to cook up a meal.

    Living Room: on the second floor, with view on both sides, this room boasts a fireplace and TV. The striking terracotta urns are original grain jugs which now serve as beautiful light features. 

    Kitchen 1: on the ground floor, next to the dining room and balcony, this kitchen has a gorgeous tiled floor dating to 1900. Equipped with oven, 3-ring cooker, fridge-freezer with cooled water, dishwasher, microwave, filter coffee machine, and Sodastream.

    Dining room: with a vast stone fireplace, vaulted stone ceiling and a grand dining table, this room truly brings the Medieval to life. The dining room connects to the kitchen and balcony.

    Study: on the first floor, the study is a bright dual aspect room centred on the desk and fireplace.

    Kitchen 2: on the second floor, this kitchen is Provençal in style and opens out to the top terrace. It features a 4-ring cooker, oven, microwave, dishwasher and washing machine.

    Bedrooms

    The house sleeps 7 people in 5 bedrooms, with 3 bathrooms. Two bedrooms are doubles and three are singles. Bedrooms are spread over the house, from ground floor to the top floor.

    On the ground floor:
    Bedroom 1: with single bed and ensuite shower room. Accessed through the kitchen, this room was originally part of the stables, as evidenced by the donkey ring in the wall.

    On the first floor:
    Bedroom 2: with double bed and ensuite bathroom with separate WC and a gorgeous view to the south. The ensuite bathroom features a claw-foot bath flanked by brass towel rails and double basins. Truly a place to linger and enjoy a good book in the bath. A separate staircase connects this bathroom to Bedroom 5 below, which gives access to a shower.

    On the second floor:
    Bedroom 3: with queen-sized double bed and decorated with 17th century copper bath.
    Bedroom 4: With single bed.
    Bedroom 5: With single bed.
    There is an independent bathroom on this floor featuring clawfoot bath, shower, basin and original wooden WC.

    Magnifique

    Merci de nous avoir permis de passer quelques jours dans cette superbe demeure historique et très agréable. La région est elle aussi superbe et notre séjour fut réellement charmant. Les enfants et nous avons été conquis!

    It was a most fantastic week.

    It was perfect for six old friends who regularly meet for holidays in different places. Your house is absolutely wonderful, we felt we were in a movie scene. Hopefully in the near future we will get to see the cellar.

    Location

    Grambois

    Located in the National Natural Park of the Luberon, Grambois is a charming hill-top Provençal village. It has kept its character and style with its paved streets, squares and old stone-houses. In the 14th century, Grambois was one of the 12 fortresses which explains its rich heritage and preservation from contemporary constructions. One of Marcel Pagnol’s films, La Gloire de mon Père, was filmed here.
