In My Dreams - Luscious Luberon

I just read on the Provence Post that "A Year In Provence" author Peter Mayles has put his house up for sale.
Sud Luberon. A 30 minutes d’Aix-en-Provence, à deux pas d’un des plus beaux villages classés de France. Dans un lieu très privé au cœur d’un environnement rare et intact, au plus grand calme, majestueuse Demeure provençale des XVII et XVIIIème siècles s’articulant autour d’une cour intérieure. Elle comprend 600 m² habitables dont un logement d’amis et diverses dépendances sur 5,7 hectares de parc avec une magnifique oliveraie, potager, roseraie, fruitiers, étangs ainsi qu’une piscine à débordement et son pool house. Beaucoup de charme et de quiétude.
I love this lush little oasis in Luberon.
This gorgeous French Country house just seems to have BHB written all over it, don't you think?
The real estate ad shows 5 chateaux in the price category...I believe that means that it is above my budget.
But I wonder, where does one move to after living in such a beautiful place?

Beautiful. If I could only visit two places for the rest of my life it would be California and the South of France.

Such a good question - where does one move after that?! Personally, we think he should simply gift you the house, and we'll all come stay at various times, how is that for a plan?!

How lovely. I remember reading Mr Mayles's book when he did the whole move-to-rural-France-and renovate-Thing. He also wrote a book about luxury which I have given away but really enjoyed- the best truffles, the best handmade shoes, the best cigars etc.

I hope Mr FF buys me a superior present when I have this baby. Must direct him to your site x
