Our Most Beautiful Country House in Provence: Domaine des 2 Massifs
In the heart of the vast valleys of the Grand Luberon, Domaine des 2 Massifs has survived the ages, retaining its authentic charm. The interior has been completely renovated, bringing modern touches to the country-style furnishings.
In the wooded area against a backdrop of green hills, nature reigns and the goats roam freely. Spend the day by the pool, pick fruit from the orchard and cook eggs from the chicken coop for breakfast. Here, luxury lies in calm and authenticity.
A Beautiful Country House Near Paris: Domaine Merida
Only 1h30 from the hustle and bustle of the capital, Domaine Merida offers an ideal setting for family holidays far from daily life. This large stone building, with a classic look, has been elegantly renovated but retains all the charm of a country house.
Inside, luxurious finishes blend with unusual objects, found in flea markets, like in a modern-day cabinet of curiosities. The floral wallpapers recall the gardens, which rest on the other side of the large glass wall.
A Pretty Country Home in Normandy: Manoir Nomade
In the heart of the Normandy countryside, Manoir Nomade embodies the typical architecture of this region, between timber and ocher tiles devoured by moss. Inside, the rooms are each unique yet cohesive. Each time you enter one, a new universe is made up of patterns, luxurious furniture and skilfully chosen decorative elements, all in a style that subtly recalls the Belle Epoque.
What we particularly like here are the grounds full of flowery groves. You could spend hours lounging on the terrace of the pool house or in the garden admiring the exceptional view of the countryside.
A Beautiful Country Home in the Southwest: Domaine de la Huppe
When we think of the southwest of France, we imagine the wooden huts nestled on the edges of Arcachon Bay, but in the Périgord, one of the most beautiful country houses in the world is Domaine de la Huppe.
Its large rooms with high ceilings and majestic beams invite us to lounge on the large sofas. The weathered wood and white stone reflect the light, which enters through the large openings in the facade. Domaine de la Huppe also has a large garden, where you can relax by the pool and admire the view of nature.

A Beautiful Country Home in Croatia: Villa Lou
Northwest of Dubrovnik, in the Elaphite archipelago, the tranquil island of Sipan is home to one of the most beautiful country houses in the world. Villa Lou, though surrounded by fields of olive, fig or almond trees, enjoys a breathtaking view of the sea.
Here, make the most of the outdoors between the large swimming pool, the pétanque court, the tree-lined garden and the beautiful terrace. It is the ideal place to spend a summer under the sun, in complete privacy.
A Sumptuous Villa in the Fields of Italy: Villa Fortaleza
In the heart of the Tuscan countryside, at the top of a verdant hill, Villa Fortaleza rises like a mountain. Facing this beautiful century-old stone building, nature seems infinite, unrolling the hectares of Chianti vineyards. A majestic setting that can be seen from the rough stone terrace.
Once through the wide gates of the estate, one discovers a refined residence with varied inspirations. Renaissance statues meet beautiful objects brought back from travels in a clever mix that creates a unique atmosphere.
A Dream Country Home in Spain: Villa Adaline
Villa Adaline is anchored in the idyllic setting of the Las Gavarras massif, near the city of Girona. We are immediately struck by the elegance of this large house, alone in the middle of the oaks, like a luxurious retreat.
Behind the thick stone walls, the shades of blue and cream, the floral paintings, the large white arches and the contemporary design bring light, cheerfulness and serenity.
A Breathtaking View from a Villa in Portugal: Casa Rio
From its hill, Casa Rio overlooks the river and the vineyards of Porto. This modern house, surrounded by nature, fascinates and draws the eye.
However, once in the house, it evokes a very different feeling. The wood, the neat furniture and the soft colours feel like a secret cabin. In all the rooms, the windows offer exceptional panoramas of the surrounding countryside. Our favourite spot to enjoy it is on a picnic blanket loaded with local dishes, in front of the house, under the bright sun of Portugal.
