General Description

An amazing Provencal village house with a magnificent secluded garden, with cypress and palm trees. This elegant property is a rare gem, perfect to enjoy all the advantages of a Provencal village location in a spectacular, private setting.

Decorated to the highest standard, the property successfully combines a sleek, modern interior décor with a classic style, featuring high ceilings, a long picture gallery and a stunning walled garden with pool and covered pergola. The light floods the living room through double-aspect floor-to-ceiling windows and doors which open onto a courtyard terrace where guests can relax and enjoy splendid views over the walled garden and pool.

This village house is situated in a very special part of Provence. This is Van Gough country - dazzling summers, sunflowers, olive trees, hill top villages, the lovely country of the Alpilles, a wealth of classical antiquities, the remote and mysterious wetlands of the Camargue (one of Europe's most important nature reserves, known especially for its pink flamingos, fighting bulls and wild horses) and all around the scent of rosemary, thyme and lavender.
