Packed your bags already? Today I'm taking you to the village of Lourmarin where we will tour a restored eighteenth century large farmhouse. I can't believe this beauty is called "House of Hens". It sounds far better in French of course which is "Bastide Galinier." Yes, definitely much better. With the help of local craftsmen, owners Isabelle and Edouard Loubet brought new life to this two story Provencal property surrounded by three hectares of park.

The garden vegetation seems to be overflowing into the terrace.

Beautiful vaulted ceiling. Open floor plan for the living room and dining room. The huge, arched window brings the garden into the room.

Modern lines in the kitchen. The table is mounted on casters and fits snugly into the island. It can easily be added to the side of the main dining table to seat more guests.

The old fireplace in the kitchen was preserved. Burgundy enamel tiles for the backsplash. Blue and red chairs add colour.

The staircase is decorated with pottery jugs.

Typically French, the bath sits inside the bedroom. A small lavatory stands beside an antique claw foot bathtub.

Anitque furniture in the master bedroom.

Bath area at the other end of the bedroom with wood panelling.
