This is most definitely one of those places.
Once the Chapel to the medieval village below, the 11th century rectory no longer serves that purpose.
But, unlike here in the States, where the old is torn down to make way for the new, this divine house of antiquity has been restored and is in loving use --
Can you imagine curling up with book and cup of coffee here?
I'd furnish the place completely differently, but I'm so in love with the house itself, the history, the location and the views that I could be happy with nothing more than a hammock! (for a while at least)
The kitchen, while staying true architecturally to its antiquity, has the perfect addition of modern conveniences.
Be still my heart
The natural light is unbelievable and provides a warmth no light fixture ever could.
The master bedroom offers stunning views of the Luberon National Park below
In a home built recently, I wouldn't like this at all, but as I said - with an 11th century restored chapel and grounds - I wouldn't need much else.
I just love all that natural light. I know I said I didn't need much, but I can only imagine if John Saladino got his hands on this place...
