An elegant house from the 19th century and set off a road just outside the historic town of L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue. Famous for its waterways and antique shops and markets, L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue is also full of delightful cafes, restaurants and a maze of winding streets and hidden historic buildings. Twice a year there are the huge antique and brocante exhibitions (easter and middle of August). The house is a five minute walk from the centre of town.
All this and set in a region of culture, heritage and architectural delight not to mention the walks, rides and drives in amazingly beautiful scenery and is a voyage of discovery - breathtaking province. The house is on the outskirts of town and is covered with Virginia creeper - and called 'Maison Piloni'.
It nestles beside the road to Carpentras and once through the wide front entrance hall, as was the tradition in old houses, you discover a haven of tranquility and peace and head towards the leafy garden and glistening pool. The garden is full of delightful places to sit, read and eat at various times of the day according to your taste in light or shade.
On the first floor, to the front of the house, are three large, pretty double bedrooms each with it's own en-suite bathroom. Two of the bedrooms have double beds and the third has two single (which can be put together).
To the rear of the house are two further bedrooms each with its own bathrooms (one of them en-suite) and with overlooking the garden. Both bedrooms have double beds. The house was originally two houses and therefore has two staircases!
Inside the house on the ground floor, fabulous high ceilings, open fireplace, squishy sofa and a large dining table in the large sitting/dining room; a good sized fully equipped kitchen, a delight to create gourmet meals (or not!) in; a fully equipped laundry room with an old fashioned drying pulley; a library/study room for lounging, listening music (or working if you need). Also a ground floor wc with basin.
