a rustic country house in the Plateau des Claparèdes area

This rustic and charming country house is situated in Saignon in the Plateau des Claparèdes in the south of France, at an altitude of 600 metres by the Luberon mountain range. It used to be a cottage that served as a refuge for shepherds, but it has been completely renovated with raw materials - stone, wood, terracotta tiles. All around there are oak and almond trees and in the garden one can dine under the shades of a lime tree. The setting couldn't be more natural and peaceful.

Ceramic tableware by Nicole Fichot. The table is decorated with wild thyme from the surrounding rocky hills.


The old oak door in the above photo to the right opens into the kitchen that has plenty of windows and a door that leads to the garden. The kitchen cabinet doors and drawers are made of mulberry wood and the mismatched handles, locks and hinges were bought at flea markets.

  1. What a beautiful home this is, Lisa. It must be amazing to stay amongst all those natural materials (the texture!) for a holiday. I really like how the table has been styled for the pictures, too.
