A Stunning French Country Home Filled with Antiques

One day, when my children are fully grown, Per and I dream of spending part of our winter somewhere sunnier and warmer than Sweden. Not the entire winter - I love pulling out my knits and lighting candles in autumn, and the first flurry of snow in December - but just enough to take the edge off the raw, dark days! We're still thinking about where this might be (tips welcome!) - but the South of France is a strong contender. 

In fact, I could very much imagine myself in a beautiful country home like Maison Aumône - then again who couldn't? The property belongs to Rachel Baker, founder of 3 sources - and is located in the Petit Luberon National Park surrounded by rolling hills, ancient woodland, vineyards and orchards. 

Formerly available to rent on airbnb, these days, the country house is the site for retreats run by Rachel (keep an eye out for the next one here) - which offer a perfect opportunity to witness the impeccable restoration and admire French antiques at every turn! 

Oooooh, to wake up here, cycle to the market through the vineyards, before enjoying a local wine on the terrace.  Who's with me? 

Absolutely beautiful! 

The historical features and antiques are a feast for the eyes and the entire interior is like pure poetry. Would you agree? 

See more pictures and read more about Rachel's work over at 3 sources. 

Would you like to dream over more houses in the French countryside today (go on, indulge me!): 

À bientôt!

  1. Yes please! I've always wanted to live in a home like this. Absolutely gorgeous.

  2. You paint a lovely picture on how to spend time in such a setting. This is so picturesque, charmingly relaxed with a touch of romance. Love that table on the terrace with the stonewall backdrop.

    1. Ooh, and that beautiful ceiling over the tub, too!

    2. Don’t wait until your children are grown, start vacationing in the beautiful south of France now

    3. You are right, I should start visiting the area now - so that I can find my future 'work from home' spot in the sunshine!

  3. This kitchen looks exactly like my grandma's kitchen did in 1970s rural Italy! When I saw the picture, I instantly smelled the scent of the drying beacon my grandparents had hanging from the ceiling during summer. Thanks for the "Little girl's on summer holiday" feeling at an ordinary April afternoon!

    1. It's funny how a room can transport you back in time. I remmember my grandmother's kitchen so vividly - the smell of a soup bubbling away on the stove, someone in the rocking chair.... :)
