Le Grand Clos: a 17th-century bastide restored by Lafourcade Architecture.
The art of restoring an ancient building while preserving its original features.
When the Lafourcade family visited this jewel of Provençal architecture for the first time they discovered a property that had fallen into disrepair. Among the brambles and long grass, Dominique Lafourcade came upon stone ponds which influenced her design of Italianate gardens.
Magnificent architecture and a strong sense of place endowed with healing springs.
To recreate the charm and patina of the original buildings, the façades were restructured and the decorative features and finely carved stone arabesques of the inner courtyard restored, while the redesigned and sumptuously decorated inner spaces were adapted to flow naturally, combining modernity and timeless refinement.
