Under the walls of the Chateau de Goult, this charming little village house evokes the spirit of Provence through the ages, and life in the heart of this quaint village goes on as it did for centuries. The village is perched on a hill in the Luberon, a solitary road to its highest point, where the 12th-century castle lies. Locals still fetch their bread and pastries in the morning and enjoy an awakening espresso at the authentic Café de la Poste, whose rare steak is cooked to near perfection and the outdoor terrace attracts diners from far and wide across the region.
By the walls to the property, passers-by drift along the castle’s ramparts, which border the garden to the house, giving an occasional nod to its residents enjoying a spot of afternoon lunch in the small, yet welcoming garden. Relaxing to the trickling sounds emanating from the garden’s fountain, a shaded seating area with circular stone table is the perfect vantage point for admiring Mont Ventoux in the distance, before cooling off in the small yet refreshing dipping pool, set below the house.
A simple yet classically Provencal style to the interiors is a soothing feel upon entering the house, with a relaxed seating area and dining area with roaring fireplace opening up to the gardens, and covered dining terrace. Elegant bedrooms, with French style beds have en-suite bathrooms, making this the perfect property for a small family, or several couples seeking to experience village life in Provence.
