Just outside the historic village of Saint Remy de Provence, you will find our secluded gem in the nature preserve area. Even so, it is less than one kilometre from the Saint Rémy town center with incredible views of the Alpilles mountain range. The house has been fully refitted in 2016, equipped with central AC, is three bedrooms and 2 ½ baths covering a roomy 140 square meters (1500 sq. ft.) on two floors, this is an authentic yet modernized Provencal villa. Its French owners, who have lived in many countries, have applied international standards of comfort, taste, and amenities, all chosen to enhance your enjoyment of the renowned Provencal lifestyle. The house is quiet, functional, and well laid out. The master bedroom and a 2 single bed bedroom share a jack-and-jill bathroom. On the second floor is a third bedroom with its own bathroom and bath. Awaiting you outside is a south-facing terrace protected from the sun, a very private pool, and very large (5500 sq. meter) landscaped grounds, and ample space for lounging or entertaining, all screened by olive trees, hedges, pines, flowering laurels and lavender, with timeless olive groves dominating the landscape. The location, in the Alpilles Parc Reserve, is ideal for exploring Provence.
Lovely Saint Remy is an easy stroll away. Hiking and biking trails originate a few hundred meters from the house and allow easy access to the lake, Glanum or Saint Paul. The next “street” over is an actual Roman road, the Via Domitia, which leads to the ancient site of Glanum less than three km. distant. Day trips might include many close-by beauty spots on the Mediterranean and the Rhone, and historic Provencal towns such as Arles and Avignon.
Every aspect of Li Ferigoulo has been designed for playing host in the classic Provencal manner. The house sleeps six people very comfortably, and can just as comfortably entertain a ten or more during the day. Living room, dining room and kitchen are open, airy and light. A large and expandable teak table and 8 chairs can be set on the terrace under the shade of the house, or under the shade of a pergola. A new, large Weber barbecue awaits your grilling talents. The pool makes an especially wonderful display at night: turn on the pool lights, and just a few inside lamps, and enjoy brilliant star-lit skies framed by the surrounding pines.
The house is equipped with cable TV in English (BBC, CNN), local phone and internet (Wifi). In the Kitchen you will find a ceramic stove, an oven, a microwave, a toaster, a kettle, a coffee machine, a large refrigerator and freezer with ice dispenser and a dishwasher. All the utensils and cookware needed to cook a proper French meal if you so desire.
