We got a sneak peek of the beautiful Le Lieu Perdu a few months ago when we interviewed Ben Lambers of Studio Aandracht. Here, a much-deserved post dedicated entirely to his photographs of this dreamy, completely renovated stone house in southern France. In the early 19th century the granddaughter of famous French philosopher Michel Eyquem de Montaigne took residence in this home on the hill overlooking vinyards and fields of flowers–and now, it’s a vacation house filled with a black, white and gold color palette, a wonderfully eccentric style and bohemian spirit. “We stayed in Montazeau two times now,” says Ben, “and we never stop being impressed by the beauty of this magnificent place.”
Located in the Dordogne department, the four-bedroom house sleeps eight. Rent it at lelieuperdu.therecollection.com.
