Located just 20 minutes from Aix-en-Provence and 15 minutes from Lourmarin, Bastide des Jardins allows easy access to everything from the city of Aix en Provence to the smallest Luberon Mountain villages. In a quiet country setting, nestled at the foot of protected Provencal hills, the house offers incredible views in all directions and an elaborate 4 acre landscaped park with fountains, trellis-covered walkways, and a variety of mature fruit trees. There are a number of hiking trails accessible from the house that connect to an organized network of trails for running, hiking or walking through the Provence countryside.
Located 3 miles from the quaint stone village of Rognes with its butchers, bakers, a florist, vegetable shop, doctor, small grocery stores, a health food store, pharmacy, pizzaria, café, wineries and restaurants. Look for a market on the main street once per week, with festivals and events once a month during the tourist season.
