There are steps down from the car-park level to the front door and from inside the house down to the poolside terrace. The garden is planted in the Provencal style with many rosemary and lavendar plants as well as some exotic types. The poolside on the the terraced side of the house is very private.The pool is 8 metres by 4 metres and 1.2 metres deep throughout , normally unheated in the summer as it is not necessary but for an additional cost it can be heated in the lower season if required.There is also a large outdoor pool in the clos which is open during the high season and although it is not heated it is also available for use.
