The ground floor of a Provencal Village house. The top section of the house will be empty during your stay but the whole house (sleeps 10) can be rented on request.
You arrive outside a property hidden behind high stone walls in a dusty village street. You push open the tall wooden gates and enter into the secret garden. Before you is an oasis of calm & enchantment - flowers and greenery everywhere. A beautiful stone house offers comfortable living for your family and the pool looks very inviting. Welcome to Le Jardin Secret.
Facing south, the house is arranged over 3 floors. The ground floor living area is wheel-chair accessible, although the ground-floor bedroom is up 2 small steps. The upper floors (if rented) are accessed via an exterior staircase, which is traditional to farmhouses in the south of France.
The house in total has 5 spacious bedrooms, sleeping a maximum of 10 guests although the ground floor can be rented on its own with 1 self contained double bedroom (160cm bed) and its own bathroom (travel cot available). In the house as a whole 3 bedrooms have en-suite facilities, the 2 bedrooms on the 2nd floor share a shower room. Please note that access to the 2nd floor is via a spiral staircase.
The main attraction of this beautiful property is undoubtedly the large secluded, well maintained gardens and swimming pool. Here you will find complete peace & tranquility. With mature trees and shrubs, the gardens are perfect for relaxing in the sun or the shade and the high walls ensure your complete privacy. The large pool (12m x 6m) is surrounded by sun loungers and there is a pool side fridge/freezer and ping pong table.
The outdoor dining table is under a pretty rose and jasmin covered pergola and there is a gas barbecue. There is an organic vegetable plot for you to pick your own vegetables. Close your eyes & imagine yourself there.
If you would prefer to have a cosy winter or Christmas break the sitting room has an inviting open stone fire place.
