Description

Villa for rent Provence for 8 people

What we like

  • Historic:  The feeling of living the life of a baron in a historic house, albeit with pool and WiFi. The house is like a mini-chateau, with details dating to medieval times.
  • Views:  Wonderful uninterrupted views on every floor from the top of a perched Provence village.
  • Outside:  Great outside spaces for a village house, with the pool area at the lower level, the balcony by the kitchen, and the upper terrace with the far views.

Things to note

  • Accessibility:  The house is set over 4 floors so is not suitable for guests with mobility issues.
  • Pool security:  The pool has an alarm for security but care should be taken with young children.

La Maison Seigneuriale, "Grambois Manor" was the former home of Lord Roquesante. The house was built in the Seventeenth Century on the fortifications of the village of Grambois with parts of the house and cellars dating back to the Fourteenth 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 but with fine examples of artwork and period furnishings. On the ground floor (Blue kitchen), 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 Fourteenth construction which incorporates the defence fortification walls of the village. The narrow passage reveals below the floor level 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 neo-Gothic plaster work added in the Nineteenth Century. From the north side of the house on the top floor there is a view of the bell tower of the Eleventh Century church Notre Dame de Beauvoir with its Twelfth Century Roman Nave.
The village and the house in particular has been featured in the film by Yves Robert "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".
On the south side of the house there are panoramic views of the Luberon mountain.
The furnishing inside the house includes Renaissance chimney pieces and in the salon on the second floor two Eighteenth Century signed terracotta Provençale grain jars as well as certain medieval wall tapestries.
The history of the house and the village is linked with its medieval past and notably the presence and activity of the Knight Templars.

The house has three outside spaces: the lower ground level with pool and sunloungers; balcony with dining table on the ground floor outside the kitchen; and upper terrace with views outside the upper kitchen.

The pool measures 5.5m x 5.5m (18 x 18ft) and is reached by steps down from the balcony on the ground floor.

The balcony has a dining table and barbecue, and is shaded overhead by vines. Figs and grapes are in easy reach.

On the 2nd floor up, outside the upper kitchen, is the panoramic terrace with tables and chairs. Its views extend over all the surrounding countryside as well as the rooftops of Grambois.

The pool measures 5.5m x 5.5m (18 x 18ft) and is reached by steps down from the balcony on the ground floor.

A grand, Renaissance house in the centre of the village of Grambois, this 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 includes a terrace with a sweeping 360 degree 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 actually two kitchens, one on the ground floor by the dining room and balcony, and one on the top floor by the top terrace, so you can take your pick. and won’t have to walk far to serve a meal.

  • Living Room: On the 2nd floor up, with views on both sides, this room has fireplace and TV. But what are those massive terracotta urns? Original grain jugs, now serving as beautiful lighting 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: A room to bring the medieval to life, With a vast stone fireplace, a vaulted stone ceiling, and a grand dining table. The dining room connects to the kitchen and balcony.
  • Study: On the 1st floor up, the study is a bright, dual aspect room centred on the desk and fireplace, and connects through to bedroom 1.
  • Kitchen 2: On the 2nd floor up, this kitchen is Provencal in style, and opens out to the top terrace. The kitchen has 4-ring cooker, oven, microwave, dishwasher and washing machine.

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.

  • Bedroom 1: One floor up, with a 1.4m/4.6ft-wide bed and view to the south, separate WC, and en suite bathroom.
  • Bathroom 1: En suite to bedroom 1, a stunning room featuring a claw-foot bath flanked by brass towel rails, and double basins. 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.
  • Bedroom 2: On the top floor, this room has a 1.6m/5.25ft-wide double and for decoration a 17th-century copper bath.
  • Bathroom 2: The top floor bathroom has a clawfoot bath, shower, basin and original wooden WC.
  • Bedroom 3: On the top floor, with a single bed.
