Fantastic and very spacious, recently renovated and very well equipped, luxurious and comfortable 18c property with 7 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms. Walled and enclosed garden with heated swimming pool, surrounded by fields. Very child and dog friendly. Only 20 minutes from the Luberon and 25 minutes from Aix en Provence. A perfect location being so close to many cultural and historical places of interest.

Ferme du Val is located between two picturesque villages, St Cannat and Lambesc. The building dates from the 18th century, a traditional stone "mas" which was originally the main farm serving the nearby chateau. The house is situated in peaceful, open countryside, within 25 acres of grounds. Both the house and the heated pool are enclosed within a walled garden creating a secluded and very private and peaceful environment. The grey/green shuttered house is flanked by large "platane" trees creating shady areas. All bedrooms have wonderful views out to the beautiful open countryside. It is a perfect location for a holiday.

The lawned gardens are on two levels, the lower with a large south facing terrace between the house and the pool. There are 2 options for outside dining: either by the edge of the pool underneath the shade of an arbour covered with vines – the grapes are edible! or there is a terrace situated behind the house, bordered with flowers and herbs, with a large gas bbq. The pool is 12m x 5m, heated, ozone treated, not chlorine, pool house with WC, shower and changing room, lots of sunbeds and parasols.

The farm has been meticulously renovated and is full of many beautiful antiques and paintings whilst providing elegant, luxurious, spacious and comfortable accommodation with the benefits of fully equipped modern kitchens and bathrooms. The many facilities include UK satellite tv/dvd, wifi / telephone and mp3 speakers.

Furthermore the house lends itself very well to an out of season holiday with the benefits of full central heating, open fireplace and heated swimming pool. Ample garaging, bbq, table tennis and boules. The property sleeps 14 very comfortably however it is suitable for any size group due to the layout of the house.

Ground floor: American style open kitchen/sitting room with dishwasher, microwave, etc plus sofas and open fireplace. Leading to cloakroom, and WC. Through to vaulted dining room. Arch through to large galleried hall with door leading off to another fully fitted kitchen, and laundry room.

First floor: stairs leading to galleried library/reading area. Master bedroom with ensuite bathroom with shower, with 4 huge windows overlooking the garden, stone stairway access to gardens. Two further double bedrooms overlooking the gardens. Bathroom with shower. Steps leading to shower room. Huge beamed sitting room with “office area” and panoramic views.

Second floor: spacious beamed twin bedroom. Two further double bedrooms. All rooms having magnificent views of countryside. Large bathroom with bath and shower. Steps leading to additional shower room.

Independent studio (part of main house)–sitting room with kitchenette leading to double bedroom with en-suite bathroom with a walk-in shower.

This house also lends itself perfectly for families wishing to take a sabbatical in Provence as the International schools are only a 30 minute drive away. Available for long term and short term rentals.

You can even go skiing, only 2 hours away! It's a perfect location for all the amazing cultural and historical sites, including Aix en Provence, Avignon, Cassis, Gorges du Verdon etc. Marseille airport and Aix en Provence TGV are only 30 minutes' away. With walks direct from the house, and 2 villages only 5 minutes' drive away, it's in an ideal setting to have a relaxing and peaceful holiday or mini break/long weekend.

This property is available for rent throughout the year, including Easter, Christmas and New Year. Rates negotiable depending on time of year, length of stay etc. We also accept longer term bookings.

Guardians live on site in separate cottage to maintain the house, garden and the pool (and babysitting if required!). Privacy and discretion assured.

everything we hoped for and so much more


By Martha B on 27-Aug-2018

We had very high expectations for our stay in Provence, and somehow our stay at Valmousse exceeded those expectations. It was truly like a dream that we never wanted to wake up from. We won't repeat everything the other reviews and the listing say about the place, except to confirm that all the good things are true. A few things that we would like to highlight based on our own experience: 1. The house somehow fits well for any group size. We are a family of four, and it did not feel overwhelming. At times during our stay we had many visitors (up to 17 at one time), and it all worked just fine (and we even felt like we had enough space to ourselves when needed). 2. Both the owners and the caretakers are delightful and conscientious people. It was a true pleasure to get to know them a bit. 3. The house has all kinds of interesting and beautiful touches, such as artwork and antiques. Very unusual for a rental property. 4. There are lovely, peaceful trails for walking and mountain biking starting from the property. 5. Lambesc has a surprising amount of commercial and leisure activities to offer. So while Valmousse is very much in the countryside, you don't have to go far to find what you need. For example, if you are into tennis, Lambesc has an outstanding and very active tennis club with seven courts. 6. For what it's worth, our family all agreed that the house has a very positive spirit to it, for lack of a better word. Some old places feel creepy, but Ferme du Val is the opposite--you can sense the timelessness and history, but it feels comfortable and welcoming. Enjoy!

An oasis amongst golden fields


By Caroline on 05-Aug-2017

A lovely old Provencal house that has been thoughtfully and tastefully renovated and decorated throughout. The bathrooms are all very modern and well appointed. There is also the benefit of two kitchens which is incredibly useful. The house is well situated with privacy and a feeling of being in the middle of the countryside but equally, shops and restaurants are
within easy reach. The pool area is great with lovely changing rooms and shower too and theres a seating area charmingly framed by an old vine where we spent a lot of time relaxing and eating. The house carers are discreet and very efficient picking up any message of enquiry instantly. We spent two idyllic weeks there this summer and will return!

Fantastic home in a great region of Provence


By Andy G on 03-Jun-2015

The house is an impressive Mas located outside of St. Cannat in the heart of Provence about 25 minutes from Aix en Provence. The location is fantastic due to it's proximity to the Aix region, the Luberon to the north and all of the locations to the west that are great to visit. The listing was accurate, the house is very well maintained as is the pool and the grounds. The owners strive to make sure everything is taken care of and all questions are answered. I have recommended this property to others.
