Overview

About the property

Bedrooms 9, Bathrooms 7.5, Sleeps 18

There are many lovely houses in Provence, but few so inviting or so interesting as this. From the moment you enter the front gate and drive through the maze-like high hedges of the front garden, you will be aware that you have arrived. Here is special place, created special people with extraordinatry talent, good taste and whimsical sense.

The house itself is extraordinarily welcoming and comfortable while the garden is as entertaining as it is beautiful. Much sought after for visits by gardeners and horticulturists, the property shows off the whimsy of its owners. No plain vanilla here - the garden has delightful surprises in the least-expected places. From geometric landscaping to secret gardens, to jungle delights, it is a horticultural tour-de-force.

Despite being located in one of the most interesting parts of Provence to visit, anyone who stays will want to spend a lot of time right here. The property itself is tough competition for the charms of the local sights at St.Remy, Avignon, Aix, L'Ile-sur-la-Sorgue, Egalières, Beaucaire and Arles.

The formal gardens, with their hedgerows and cypress trees, their fountains, sculptures and pools, are eye-catching. From an ivy-covered wooden horse staring over the fence, to the rear of a wooden terrier sticking out of a hole in the ground, to metal sculptures of bulls in the pastures, to a miniature dolls house, delightful eccentric touches abound. What is astounding is that 20 years ago, this was a farmer's field - this beauty has been conjured up as if by magic (and hard work).

The larger swimming pool is fed through three fountains, and the adjacent pool house has everything imaginable for such a facility, including showers and its own outdoor kitchen. The second pool is a square, deep plunge pool and is hidden in a private garden with comfortable lounge beds, surrounded by high hedges. It is adjoined by a little Folie, for siesta, and private times. There is a tennis court, vegetable gardens for your salad, and even two donkeys to amuse the kids.

The house has the cool and fresh look throughout, in modern greys, and with attractive art as well as whimsical touches. There are now 9 delightful bedrooms, including the 2 garden suites. With characterful bathrooms, and attractive views on all sides, they represent the acme of hospitality. The ground floor reception rooms are attractive and comfortable, especially the large living room that opens directly onto a lattice-covered terrace and a formal garden. There is a separate dining room for cozy off season interior dining, and a country kitchen with provencal charm to make cooking a pleasure. An enormous games room is perfect for amusing children or adults.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Terrific property for large groups or extended families. Fantastic property, bedrooms, grounds, pool, playground and tennis court. The house is centrally located near St. Remy de Provence. The caretakers, Laurent and Christie, are attentive andkind, and very helpful at every turn. The only thing to be careful of is not to over-plan your visit so that you have some time to just hang out at this sumptuous property. Bed rooms are very comfortable and bathrooms are modern and large. The only watch out is that many rooms are not air conditioned (there are fans) so if that is important to you, consider the time of year that you rent.
