About our home


"L'Oratoire de St. Christol" is located in the southern Luberon mountain range, just outside the medieval hilltop village of Grambois. It is an old 'mas' and our second family home, beautifully restored and furnished in keeping with the character of Provence. It has 220m2 of living space on two floors, beamed ceilings, 5 bedrooms, and 3 bathrooms. The house is on 5 hectares of wooded land with a beautiful 5 x 11 meter swimming pool with diving board(upkeep of pool provided) and a magnificent view of the Luberon. It is peaceful and quiet, yet only 5 minutes walking distance to the village. On the property you'll find many 'corners' to discover: a quiet and shaded fountain to sit by, a medieval water basin (sometimes dry in the summer)and numerous terraces and paths to stroll. There are medieval ruins in the woods but they are difficult to get to. The kitchen leads to both the front terrace adjacent to the 'cuisine d'ete' (summer kitchen) and to the large back terrace with a magnificent view, providing outside dining in sun or shade. The large vaulted kitchen has a picture window facing the Luberon and is fully equipped with new appliances, including a dishwasher and 'American' fridge with icemaker. The house is furnished to give a light, summery feeling using a combination of quality modern design and antique 'Provencal'. Grambois is located in what is known as the 'Golden Triangle' of the southern Luberon mountain range. The area is dotted with countless medieval villages
