IN THE SPOTLIGHT – FR163 Domaine St Jerome

As well as being one of our favourite properties, Domaine St Jerome is situated in a beautiful area, approximately 150 hectares which runs into the Luberon National Forest. The pool , fountains and “bassin” are fed from the source which supplies the property and is also used for watering the garden (thus you can legitimately claim to be swimming in mineral water!). “Aigues” (as in Peypin d’Aigues, Motte d’Aigues, Pays d’Aigues) is an ancient word meaning “water” and this part of the Luberon is fortunate to be well supplied with water – hence the characteristic verdant countryside.

The area is rich in french culture and wonderful varied produce, changing with the seasons. Depending on your stay there may well be ripe fruit to pick at St Jerome. With cherries, apricots, plums, apples, pears, figs, sharon fruit, blackberries, almonds and in the future walnuts and olives (hopefully!). Guests are invited to enjoy the produce on offer.

Locally you are recommended to visit L’Art Glacier for amazing icecream treats, between 50 to 70 flavours at any one time! There are local markets most days, with the most popular on Friday in Lourmarin. You will not need to travel far for fresh bread and wonderful cakes, for exceptional bakeries though we suggest a trip to Ansouis (8km). Recommended restaurants are L’auberge des Tilleuls, Grambois, La Closerie, Ansouis and La Petite Maison, Cucuron.

This is the place for a really special holiday; Domaine St Jerome is beautifully restored and immaculately run. Swim, play tennis, explore the excellent walks or simply relax and enjoy the views. Do contact us for current availability.
