Overview

Photos and Description of this Cucuron holiday chateau / country house

Luxury self-catering rental property with heated pool in very peaceful location

Mas de la Boissiere is a fantastic 6 bedroom / 6 bathroom, fully renovated, luxurious and comfortable property, filled with exquisite antiques and paintings. There is a lovely heated pool with plenty of space for sunloungers, with stunning views up to the Luberon, all set within its own 5 hectare parkland, thereby ensuring absolute peace, privacy and tranquillity. The property is perfectly located between the lovely Luberon villages of Cucuron and Cabrieres d'Aigues - both are only 5 minutes drive away, with all necessary amenities such as bakers, butchers, post office, bank, newsagent, general store, gift shops as well as excellent restaurants. The weekly market at Lourmarin is an event not to be missed, with everything ranging from clothes, spices, to jewellery, and not forgetting the wonderful Provençal food and wine, so much choice! This property can be rented on a self-catering basis or cooking services can be organised. Excellent cycling, walking, golf, restaurants, markets, vineyards, cultural visits are all close by.

There are 6 double bedrooms, all with ensuite bathrooms, as follows:

Bedroom 1: a bright and spacious large double or twin bedroom with windows overlooking either the pool or the gardens, bathroom with walk in shower.

Bedroom 2: a lovely double bedroom with windows overlooking the courtyard or the gardens, bathroom with walk in shower.

Bedroom 3: a pretty double bedroom with a window overlooking the gardens, bathroom with shower.

Bedroom 4: a lovely and spacious double or twin bedroom with windows overlooking the gardens and up to the Luberon, bathroom with shower.

Bedroom 5: a very pretty and spacious double or twin bedroom with windows overlooking the gardens and views to Mont St Victoire, bathroom with bath/shower.

Bedroom 6: on the ground floor - a lovely double bedroom with window overlooking the courtyard, bathroom with bath/shower.

The sitting room is bright and airy, and extremely comfortablewith sofas around the fireplace, going through to the TV/Snug room. All French windows lead out onto the gardens. The dining room seats 12 comfortably, with a fireplace, French windows out to the gardens or the swimming pool. The kitchen is fully equipped, door leading out to the courtyard or the swimming pool.

Out of Summer Season: Mas de la Boissiere is a lovely place to rent in Autumn, Winter and Spring too. There are log fires in both the sitting room and the dining room, creating a very warm and cosy atmosphere. Warm, sunny days with cooler nights make Provence a lovely place to visit at any time of the year. The food and wine of course, is fantastic all year round. 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.

This property is available for rent throughout the year, with B&B out of season.

About Georgie Causton

Originally based in London working as an Office Manager for a conference production company. Decided to take a year out and follow my partner to France and we ended up staying and living in Cucuron.

Georgie Causton purchased this chateau / country house in 2005

Why Georgie Causton chose Luberon

This is such a beautiful and unspoilt area of Provence. The South Luberon is much quieter and less touristy than the North Luberon, gorgeous countryside and the coast is only just over an hour away - best of both worlds!

What makes this chateau / country house unique

Amazing views were the first thing that drew us to Mas de la Boissiere, in such a perfect location being only 5 minutes from Cucuron and yet in the middle of the countryside, in its own grounds. The house itself had a lot of potential to be a very comfortable and spacious house and we feel and hope that we have created a great place for people to stay, especially having the advantage of no queues for the bathroom as each bedroom has its own ensuite!

Beautiful house, fantastic location.

  • 5 of 5

Three families from Iceland stayed in this beautiful, superbly located and well maintained house in July 2016. The house is situated in the fantastic Luberon area, old style but well maintained, clean and proper. The rooms are large and all with ensuite bathrooms, and the kitchen is perfect for collaborative cooking. The pool is large and suits well for kids. The owners are welcoming and fair. Overall we had a great time and aim to return if possible.

First class

  • 5 of 5

Three generations spent 2 glorious blissful weeks at Mas de la Boussiere this year. I cannot fault the accommodation, facilities and location. Ulrike and Rene who are responsible for the running of the accommodation are discreet, efficient and more than helpful and so kind. The house, pool and facilities were kept in tip top condition (Ulrike cleaned the pool daily and early - beautiful) Our ages ranged from 58yrs to 10mths and everybody's needs were well catered for - the perfect retreat for families or groups of friends. Having spent the last 10 years renting houses in the Luberon we finally feel we have found the perfect retreat. Surrounded by beautiful idyllic countryside - Vineyards and Olive groves you cannot ask for more. Cucuron is a beautiful traditional village with all the normal shops,restaurants and bars (including a very well stocked Spa). The Market on Tuesday is not to be missed although I recommend an early visit!! We will all definitely be returning - a perfect home in a perfect location!!

Beautiful house in a stunningly quiet location

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing two weeks staying here. The house is beautifully decorated and incredibly comfortable. All bedrooms are very spacious and have wonderful ensuite bathrooms. Everything you need is provided including a very well equipped kitchen. Outside there is a large garden, pool and many sun loungers. Excellent gas barbecue, table tennis and an amazing boules pitch! The outside seating areas are perfect - comfortable sofas and chairs and the outside dining table and chairs are in a shaded open sided 'barn' at the end of the pool - perfect for breakfast, lunch and supper out of the direct heat. The local town is charming and has everything you need. I would thoroughly recommend this to anyone and we shall definitely be going again. The hosts René and Ulrika looked after us very well answering any questions we had, booking restaurant tables for us and even found out where the closest paragliding would be! Nothing was too much trouble. Highly recommend.

Beautiful !

  • 5 of 5

The house and grounds are exactly like the photographs - just as beautiful and well kept. The service provided by Rene & Ulrike, the couple responsible for managing the property, was A++. The rooms were very comfortable (as were the beds!) and tastefully decorated as was the rest of the house. We loved the outdoor terrace and the pool with its stunning views of the Luberon. We had a lovely time and would definitely return to the Mas.
