  • Beautiful gardens

About the villa

Located in the Lubéron Regional Park, and forming part of a 13th century Knights Templar estate, the very elegant Clos St. Maurin wears its history lightly.  The former cloister courtyard is still privately enclosed, though now its focal point is an unusual swimming pool, based on a traditional ‘bassin’ and fed by a lovely old fountain. In the gardens, the magnificent Cedars of Lebanon are said to be testament to the Templar period, and the building itself has barely changed from its 18th century exterior. But within its walls are high-ceilinged, spacious and elegant rooms with polished timber floors, carefully furnished with a selection of French and English antiques, and period furniture now upholstered in chic, contemporary fabrics.

There are pale walls, white sofas and a classic fireplace in the large sitting room; an attractive smaller sitting room and a well-equipped kitchen with a pretty collection of china plates on the walls, table tennis, sofas and a TV in the games room. Each of the six bedrooms have been decorated with a distinctive design by the  creative owners. Their décor ranges from pretty fabrics and carefully selected prints, to sepia and soft naturals, with ingenious quirky touches, like tea and coffee pot bedside lamps. The bedrooms are complemented by large and well-equipped bathrooms. Lovers of stylish interiors with a 'sense of place' will enjoy this property. 

Set in mature gardens with broad lawns and an orchard, Clos St Maurin is just 1km from village restaurants, and 8km from shopping in Apt.
