The large lighted terrace in front is perfect for enjoying your summer evenings and the terrace just off the kitchen next to the small lily pond and with gas/charcoal covered BBQ area is for comfortable dining. For the children, the heated pool will provide hours of entertainment. On site but out of view (behind tall hedges) is a cottage with a caretaker who offers extra security and assistance if required. The 9700 m sq. property is fully fenced with a remotely activated gate.
Inside (450 m sq.), the ground floor with tastefully appointed double living and dining rooms, and generously sized bedrooms include first floor rooms cooled by thick stone walls, second floor rooms with A/C and all rooms are screened. Internet access is available in most of the house. The spacious designer kitchen with granite work surfaces is the perfect place to experiment with provencal cuisine… just snip some rosemary and thyme from the pots and garden. Vive la Provence!
