"We fell in love with the area, the place, the house, and the potential that it presented to us and to our eyes"
"Provence has a connection to India. Since all the fabrics came from India, the designs on the fabrics are Indian" we were told by the owner. They even ventured to India to source pieces for the house such as the doors and the stunning statue that greets you at the entrance of Mas des Oliviers.
Mas des Oliviers follows a more family-oriented, relaxed style, focused on nature and letting it into the house. With large openings, and grand windows, it was purposely designed so one could really enjoy the stunning view of the house's countryside surroundings that embody that classic luxury holiday in France.
Given that the couple run an interior design firm, most of the built in furniture was designed by them like the beds, but they chose to mix their own designs with some old and contemporary pieces. When we asked Liliana what her favourite space in the house was, she immediately told us it was the living room, and we couldn't agree more.
"I love the feeling when you have the big bay windows open and the breeze comes through the curtains and creates waves in the fabric."
The large almost marshmallow-like couch begs to be enjoyed in the warmth of the sun. Each space was thoughtfully designed for families; whether it's the kitchen and its large island meant to be surrounded, or the outdoor dining area for larger family households.
She passionately tells us that even the curtains were specifically sourced from a small company in Italy that create beautiful fabrics from only natural linen. Not one detail was left to chance, and it shows.
The reason the couple aimed for grand openings in the house was so that people could really enjoy the stunning view on the rock and the mountain in front. Their favourite view to ponder on being a particular tree standing in the middle of the rocks that seemed peculiar. "How did it come to grow so large when there is no soil? How did it grow roots?" are just some of the questions that come to mind.
It is one of the views that the couple cherish in Mas des Oliviers, and a sight they love to see that they feel makes it a truly special place. Being situated in a small hameau, in the heart of a national park, no other construction will ever be possible, and makes it truly unique and peacefully remote.
The sense of peace is a clear feeling that Mas des Oliviers is meant to bring and it is one that is indescribable and best experienced first-hand. Through the sights of the countryside, the light of Provence, and the history of Mas des Oliviers: it is truly paradise.
