This rare, elegant and discreet Provencal estate with beautiful bastide and guest house, vines, and 2h of olives needs to be seen to appreciate fully.
The main, characterful country mansion offers elegant proportions alongside the attractive stone guest house, it is a home to bring together family and friends and enjoy timeless gatherings.
In a tranquil setting at the head of its valley, this impressive home sits on 11.5 hectares (more than 28 acres) of beautiful grounds which includes 2 hectares of stone terraced olive groves and 1.2 hectares of vineyards (classified as AOP Provence) which flow down and past the winding driveway amid white oak woods. Enchanting, terraced gardens and walkways around the houses and pool, the sounds of running water from fountains and water canals as you approach the gravel terraces, shaded by mulberry and plane trees.
This haven of peace and quiet with uninterrupted views from all terraces and windows, was conceived as a respite for family, friends and neighbours to spend time together, create lasting memories and enjoy entertaining, rest, solitude and nature throughout the year.
The interior was designed to create a calm, provencal farmhouse intimacy to be relaxing, social and welcoming. Running the length of the main house, the front terraces are accessed from French doors from all rooms and have outdoor dining spaces, quiet, shaded corners and seating areas. A water canal runs through the arranged terrace gardens below, offering peaceful scented walks and garden seats with just the sounds of the birds and running water.
The main entrance door opens to the hallway: to one side the intimate dining room and salon with fireplaces, to the other, the Provencal kitchen, food and drink preparation room, the vaulted wine cellar, a library/media room and adjoining office. There are 2 wc ‘s on this level.
