"Expect to encounter herds of goats and sheep and hear the crowing rooster! It's all part of the experience."

Dive into The Baronnies Provençales Regional Park, tucked between the Alps and Mont Ventoux, where L’Atelier offers an elegant escape on a vast estate with stunning Provençal mountain views. Surrounded by 2 hectares of natural lavender fields, yielding a boutique essential oil production, and olive groves, this property captivates up to 8 guests with its beauty. An infinity pool provides awe-inspiring views of the peaks, and a path currently under development will lead you to a private crystalline watercourse recognized as a remarkable site. As the night descends, the unspoiled sky showcases a brilliant tapestry of stars.

The Surrounding Nature

André, a native of Saint-Ferréol-Trente-Pas, and his wife Myriam, who own the estate, have repurposed a former agricultural building that once housed chickens, goats, sheep, and a mechanical workshop from the 1970s. From 2015 to 2019, this transformation was a labor of love, requiring the demolishing of irreparable parts and meticulous restoration. Their efforts continue to enhance this magnificent stone-clad holiday home. Distinguished by its spaciousness and openness, the residence features a cathedral-style roof made from ancient wooden frameworks sourced locally. Expansive glass windows blur the lines between inside and outside, amplifying the home’s grandeur and connecting it seamlessly with the sprawling garden and the natural beauty surrounding it.

Wood, wood and more wood!

Wood, wood and more wood!

Inside the house, the skillful woodwork stands out prominently, reflecting a fascinating narrative about the sourcing and reclamation of this material. André and Myriam collaborated with local masons and carpenters and enlisted the expertise of Fabrice Renault, a Provence specialist in antique materials (Provence Matériaux Anciens in Comps, Gard). Beyond the stunning frameworks, paneling, and beams, two main bedrooms boast splendid solid oak flooring, repurposed from reclaimed railway wagons. Wood plays a central role in the home’s design and is featured prominently throughout the space.

The living area is adorned with unique wooden furniture, and a wood-burning fireplace brings warmth to winter evenings. Each piece has been meticulously scavenged or thoughtfully collected over the years, creating a carefully curated collection. The owner’s tip for those interested in antiques and vintage items: ‘L’entrepôt’ brocante in Les Pilles, just a stone’s throw from the house, is a treasure trove worth exploring.

A Passionate Dedication

Formerly a bridal gown designer and artistic director, Myriam, originally from Vaucluse, now dedicates her time to the estate where she and her husband, André, a journalist-filmmaker with a knack for DIY, settled in 2016. While tackling major and minor renovations, Myriam’s intuitive sense for interior design, rooted in her creative background, became evident. She seamlessly blended natural materials and textures, repurposed items with ingenuity, and played with fabric dyeing and upcycling. Her keen eye for detail is evident throughout the house and in the personalized services offered to guests. The residence is equipped with high-end appliances, underfloor heating through a heat pump, and luxurious Terre de Mars bath products. It provides the option for breakfast baskets and massages on demand. L’Atelier also encourages guests to explore the beautiful outdoors, providing a guided path to various activities, from hiking and horseback riding to mountain biking and foraging wild plants with local farmers.
