Mas St Albert is part of an 18th century farm, facing south across a vast and spectacular private valley, planted with truffle oaks.
Nestled on 120 acres of land with lavender fields, truffle oaks and natural bush land, Mas St Albert is a traditional and beautiful old property, lovingly and very tastefully renovated.
Seemingly miles from anywhere with its wide-open spaces, tranquility and wildlife, this lovely stone house is equidistant between the market town of Apt and the medieval and exquisite town of Lourmarin with its galleries and restaurants.
It has a private entrance, driveway and parking as well as a private pool and terrace, both of which are private and unseen from the owner’s property.

The Luberon region
There's loads to do in the Vaucluse region.
The scenery is some of the most stunning in France, and has always provided a challenge to serious climbers, cyclists and hikers. Alternatively, there's Tennis available in Apt or Bonnieux, horseback riding in Apt and mountain bikes for rent in Bonnieux.
It really is hard to get bored here!
There are many Regional summer festivities throughout the region: theatre in Avignon, opera in Aix and Orange, a jazz festival in La Roque d’Antheron and many antique fairs and flea markets.
Many of the small local villages host their own summer festivals, and many have a weekly market, well worth a visit to see the range of local produce on offer.
If it's history you're after, there's Avignon, with the Palace Of The Popes and some of the finest examples of Medieval architecture in Europe. Or for a Roman theme, sites such as St Remy De Provence and Pont Du Garde are nearby. Each village seems to have its own history, so why not pay a visit, and wander through the narrow winding streets, or explore the ramparts and Medieval churches.
If you like the idea of a visit to the coast, you can easily go to the coast in the morning, take a swim in the warm waters of the Mediterranean, and return in the early evening.
The scenery around this part of the Luberon is stunning. There are views in all directions and the property is ideally placed for some marvellous countryside walks.
The terrain that provides the marvellous views also provides an excellent challenge for climbers, and around the village there are numerous caves, cliffs and peaks for the more adventurous types.
On a more serene note, here are some excellent restaurants in the area, in particular, in Buoux, the Auberge de la Loube.
