Property Ref: VIL2685
This beautiful property of some 400 sqm is a subtle blend of traditionalism and modernity, elegantly furnished and decorated with quality materials. Rooms are fully air conditioned and offer much space to preserve privacy. There are two bright and spacious living rooms, one facing south on the pool, the other facing west on the lavender field. From the sitting room, there is an office. The villa also has a semi-professional fully equipped kitchen with dining area which overlooks the west terrace (perfect for your private chef to whip up a celebratory meal).
The villa can accommodate up to 10 guests. There are 4 double bedrooms with 2 en-suite bathrooms and 2 en-suite shower rooms, and a mezzanine with 2 beds ideal for children. Outside there are two areas with comfortable seating, a heated pool (12 x 5m) with an electric cover, plus a petanque (boule) pitch and large manicured park of 3000 sqm with lawn.
With a subtle blend of old charm and modern comfort, the house is located a few minutes’ drive from Maussane, the 18-hole golf course of Manville, Avignon, Pont du Gard, Gordes, Aix, and Marseille cities.
This area of Provence boasts history and stunning scenery, not only of the Alpilles hills but also of the ruined castle which dominates the landscape surrounding Les Baux. The castle can be traced back to the 10th century. The local people finally destroyed it in 1632 to bring an end to the centuries of conflicts, revolts, sieges, and wars of religion, which had taken place there. Today, quaint artisan shops and restaurants line the tiny cobbled streets. A wider range of amenities can be found at Mausanne les Alpilles and at St Remy de Provence, birthplace of Nostradamus, both of which are within easy reach of the farmhouse.
25 minutes’ drive north from this Les Baux de Provence farmhouse, is the medieval Papal city of Avignon, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site and site of the world’s biggest gothic palace. The city of Arles is just to the south with an impressive Roman arena, once holding 20,000 spectators. This is the gateway to the wetlands of the Camargue with its diverse wildlife ranging from pink flamingos to white horses and black fighting bulls.
