Luxury Village Home Stunning Views of Luberon Pool Pablo Picasso - Rare Find

Located in: Ménerbes
In 1935 Pablo Picasso was introduced to Dora Maar who became his muse and mistress. Dora lived just up the street from the Ancienne Poste in what is now known as La Maison Dora Maar.

At the time the Ancienne Poste was, yes you guessed it, the village post office - located halfway between the Dora Maar house and the village bar Le Cafe du Progres. Local lore has it that Picasso visited the Ancienne Poste frequently to chat and catch up on news from elsewhere. We feel that much of his incredible creativity has been captured in today's modernist incarnation of the Ancienne Poste: Vast open spaces, the entire back wall made of glass and the massive village rock face giving the modern suspended staircase a troglodytic character.

L’Ancienne Poste is a luxury village rental property in the heart of Ménerbes, a peaceful village in the beautiful Luberon region of Provence.

Featured in Homes & Gardens UK, various other design magazines and on a French architecture TV programme (search for Ancienne Poste Menerbes on YouTube), the property was designed by the owner and one of France's leading contemporary architects. It has now been elegantly restored and stylishly furnished, yet still partakes of this protected building’s original historic charm.

At 5,000 square feet, the house offers generous courtyard, a rooftop terrace, access to a swimming pool and incredible views of the Luberon Valley from every bedroom and bathroom. Its spacious interior has been tastefully refashioned in a sophisticated, contemporary style that enhances the original architecture. Best of all, the design allows Provence’s magical light, the inspiration of so many painters, to bathe the interior of the house.

For those wishing to explore Provence beyond the village, L’Ancienne Poste is an ideal home base. Setting out on foot, on an excellent rental bike or by car, you can immerse yourself in Provence, from lavender fields and limestone cliffs to medieval villages and crumbling Roman ruins, from antiques markets and wine estates to chic contemporary shops and stylish restaurants.

THE PROPERTY
L’Ancienne Poste has been thoughtfully designed to accommodate up to 10 people with the option to add an adjacent property for an additional 2 people for an additional charge. A typical group might consist of close friends who want to share a Provençal home base, or a mix of couples and children, young visitors are more than welcome. Alternatively, L’Ancienne Poste would be ideal for one gregarious couple wishing to host various guests at an 'open house in Provence' for a couple of weeks or longer.
