Philosophia - 7Br - Sleeps 8
10 guests7 bedrooms8 beds6 baths
Named in honor of the ancient art of contemplation, Philosophia is a villa like no other. Serene, bucolic and with finely articulated splashes of Asian style, enjoy the balanced composition of Provencal style and Zen reverie at this Luberon villa. In the heart of the French countryside, and far from the noisy crowds, the tranquility and peace of mind guests experience at Philosophia belies the fact that they are standing but a mere five minutes from the boutiques of Gordes and the delicacies of Coustellet farmer’s market.
Nestled in five acres of olive groves and a lovely garden with lavender is a palatial, solar-heated swimming pool with a statue of Buddha adding a placid aura to the space. While you can listen to your favorite playlist on the terrace through the outdoor sound system, the pool even features an underwater sound system—because being Zen doesn’t mean being boring! Curl up in the loungers or the hammock, or visit the chapel for a spot of enlightenment. Indoors at Philosophia, you will find satellite TV, DVD player, Wi-Fi and a brown grand piano for moments of musical whimsy. Your reservation includes housekeeping.
All materials at this delectable country villa have been selected for their soulful qualities. Burgundy stone floors date to the 17th century. An old door harkens back to the Spanish influence of the 18th century. The exposed beams are reminiscent of an ancient temple or space of meditation. The library with built-in shelves is impressive and requires a ladder to reach the volumes at the very top. Modern style meets Old World charm every step of the way.
Seven absolutely stunning bedrooms accommodate up to ten fortunate guests at Philosophia. Five of the bedrooms feature en-suite bathrooms, and each suite provides its own set of perks. The pool house includes the seventh sleeping quarter with its own kitchenette, alfresco dining area and barbeque.
Whether you have come to France to golf, taste wine or fine dine, you will find everything you desire close to this bijou property. Recommendations for nearby day trips include Isle Sur La Sorgue, a picturesque town built around a series of canals, and the village of Apt where you might charter a hot air balloon ride at Montgolfiere Vol Terre. Rejuvenate at this exquisitely restored 18th century French sheepfold at the aiguille of style!
