Villa | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 8
Family holiday home in Provence with pool near village – if you are seeking to experience quintessential Provence, you are likely to find it here at La Belle Montagne. Surrounded by vineyards and olive groves, with a breathtaking view of Mont Sainte Victoire, this family holiday home in the heart of Provence offers a rural base only one mile from a typical French village with bakery, post office and other amenities. Internally, this lovely restored farmhouse has a modern elegance and is full of charm and character throughout, with an excellent summer kitchen and lounge for long lazy days spent outside. The large pool and the extensive, mature gardens are the icing on the cake.
At the foot of the mountains leading up to Mont Sainte Victoire, which was made world-famous by the Impressionist painter Cezanne, this part of Provence has conservation area status and, as you would therefore expect, is a relaxing and almost timeless spot. You are bound to enjoy wandering around the narrow streets and little squares in Puyloubier, one of the main points on the Cezanne trail. You could watch the world go by over a drink at one of the cafes in the village square at Pourrieres, or visit the charming Provencal town of Fuveau just 9 miles down the road. And if you want to leave the car behind, why not take the little bus that follows the Route de Cezanne from Puyloubier to Aix, through the local scenery that inspired his art? Aix is a lively, appealing town with galleries, shops, restaurants, markets, music ...
If you like to stay busy, the area around the holiday villa lends itself to outdoor activities such as walking, hiking, riding and mountain biking. You can go paragliding locally, caving and potholing at Trets, play a round of golf, arrange to drive the car of your dreams at the GT track at Vauvenargues just half an hour away, or take the kids to the Aoubre adventure park near Flassans – they’ll love it! A holiday at this Provence Mont Sainte Victoire mas with pool - La Belle Montagne - certainly does have something for everyone.
