The French countryside has always garnered my attention when I read about it in books such a Peter Mayle caper or discover images of the expansive lavender fields in Provence. So, it should come as no surprise that when I happened upon Ginny Magher’s Provence farmhouse, I stopped, gazed and gawked. Originally gracing the pages of Veranda in September 2007, it is included in the decor book The Houses of Veranda: The Art of Living Well which was published in 2012. With the help of architect and contractor Bruno Lafourcade who was spotlighted in The New York Times in 2006 along with the details of Magher’s renovation of the 14-room farmhouse, in approximately one year, this run-down mas (the real estate term generally used to describe Provençal farmhouse properties) was reformed to grand style. Enjoy the tour of Mas de Baraquet inside and out . . .
