On three ﬂoors, this dry stone house, with painted wooden shutters, oﬀers direct access to the ground ﬂoor by a ﬂight of stairs. The entrance, surrounded by an oﬃce and a dressing room, opens onto a lounge with a ﬁreplace and a large dining room that looks out onto the surrounding nature. This room with an exposed beamed ceiling and numerous windows looks onto the terrace. Equipped with stone tables, arranged in a semi-circle under the imposing foliage of a splendid cedar tree, this peaceful haven is located high up on a terrace, with the water ﬂowing below. The two upper ﬂoors are accessed by an elegant traditional staircase, with ﬂoor tiles and a wrought iron railing. On both the ﬁrst and second ﬂoors, there are four beautiful bedrooms and bathrooms. And the amenities do not stop there; outside, an independent annex oﬀers a suite with two bedrooms. In addition to its professional kitchen and cellars, this elegant country house features privileged access to a large pool (12m x 6m), which is fully tiled and surrounded by a wide paved area. Plane, hackberry and Judas trees, as well as other species provide shade from the summer sun. Located on the opposite side to the pool, with access for cars by a dirt road, the farm consists of three lovely old buildings, built in a circle around a stable yard. The ﬁrst house, which was formerly a water mill, comprises a kitchen, a lounge with a ﬁreplace, as well as three bedrooms, a bathroom and a shower room. Perfectly located, right next to the stream, it has a natural swimming pool, the camber, of which the only background noise is that of the waterfall. It is magical! The second house has two bedrooms, a bathroom and a shower room. An independent studio with a bedroom and a shower room completes this fully restored property. Only the third house, 120 square metres built on a ground ﬂoor and a ﬁrst ﬂoor, requires some work to enhance the beauty of the building. This hamlet perfectly located in a green cocoon is ideal for a large family of nature lovers. You can already imagine several generations living together in this little corner of paradise, each with their own space. Together but never on top of each other. Acquired by Agnès Varda in the mid-90s, this wonderful property was much talked about last year. From May to September 2015, it welcomed Silencio, the mythical bar of the rue Montmartre and Rosalie Varda-Demy, Agnès Varda’s daughter, who programmed lectures, concerts, cinema-club and welcomed guests and friends, famous or not, with a cuisine that was entrusted to Armand Arnal (the chef of the “La Chassagnette” restaurant in Arles). So that, with a sense of sharing, the stones, like ﬂowing water, could irrigate guests with their power.
Emile Garcin Luberon
Emmanuel Garcin, in the footsteps of his father Emile Garcin, is a lover of the Luberon region of which he directs the agency.
The Luberon agency is chronologically the second oﬃce, after the Alpilles, opened by Emile Garcin. What area does it cover exactly? The Luberon oﬃce, which is installed in Ménerbes, was founded in 1985 on my initiative, initially to cover only the Luberon. Since then, we have extended our activity; in addition to the section of the Luberon which goes from Isle-sur-la Sorgues to Forcalquier, today we also cover the Ventoux region all the way to the Drôme, where the demand is particularly strong.
