Winter has only just begun, which is why we’re daydreaming about sunnier days and a killer vacation house—like this one in the south of France. Set into a cliff in Vaucluse, Provence, the 3,200-square-foot modern, minimalist home was designed by Jean-Paul Bonnemaison (pun surely intended) and encompasses three floors, four bedrooms, a soaring, double-height living area with clerestory windows that are actually panels looking into the rooftop pool above it, multiple patios and courtyards, a double-flow hearth, and, as you might have guessed, much more.

The concrete structure features white interiors, polished concrete floors, sleek surfaces in the kitchen including a glass countertop—and not much else. But there is one surprising detail: aluminum shutters that have been water-jet-cut to create jagged, vertical patterns.

Other amenities include a summer kitchen, wine cellar, all-house sound system, solar panels, and rainwater collection. And the pièce de résistance is, of course, the expansive roof-terrace “mirror-style” pool, which affords stunning views of the surrounding mountainscape and the town of Le Beaucet. Available through L’Exploreur, it’s asking €2,360,000, or approximately $2,539,000.
