Description

There are many lovely houses in Provence, but few are so lovely and so interesting as this one. From the moment one enters the front gate and drives through the almost maze-like high hedges of the front garden, one is made aware that this is a property created by people with good taste and a whimsical sense.

The house itself is extraordinarily welcoming and comfortable while the garden is as entertaining as it is beautiful. Much sought after for visits by gardeners and horticulturists, the property shows off the whimsy of its owners. No plain vanilla here - the garden has delightful surprises in the least-expected places. From geometric landscaping to secret gardens, to jungle delights, it is a horticultural tour-de-force.

Despite being located in one of the most interesting parts of Provence to visit, anyone who stays will want to spend a lot of time right here. The property itself is tough competition for the charms of the local sights at St.Remy, Avignon, Aix, L'Ile-sur-la-Sorgue,

No plain vanilla here - the garden has delightful surprises in the least-expected places. From geometric landscaping to secret gardens, to jungle delights, it is a horticultural tour-de-force.

Despite being located in one of the most interesting parts of Provence to visit, anyone who stays will want to spend a lot of time right here. The property itself is tough competition for the charms of the local sights at St.Remy, Avignon, Aix, L'Ile-sur-la-Sorgue, Egaliéres, Beaucaire and Arles. The formal gardens, with their hedgerows and cypress trees, their fountains, sculptures and pools, are eye-catching. From an ivy-covered wooden horse staring over the fence, to the rear of a wooden terrier sticking out of a hole in the ground, to metal sculptures of bulls in the pastures, to a miniature dolls house, delightful eccentric touches abound. What is astounding is that 20 years ago, this was a farmer's field - this beauty has been conjured up as if by magic (and hard work).

The larger swimming pool is fed through three fountains, and the adjacent pool house has everything imaginable for such a facility, including showers and its own outdoor kitchen. The second pool is a square, deep plunge pool and is in hidden in a private garden "chamber ", surrounded by high hedges. It is adjoined by a little "Folie", for siesta, and private times.

The house has the low ceilings and layout of an ancient country cottage, although few country cottages would contain seven delightful bedrooms like this one, 3 with king sized beds, 2 queens and the rest are double occupancy bedrooms with single bed. With characterful bathrooms, and attractive views on all sides, they represent the acme of hospitality. The ground floor reception rooms are attractive and comfortable, especially the large living room that opens directly onto a lattice-covered terrace and a formal garden. There is a separate dining room for cozy off season interior dining, and a country kitchen with Provencal charm to make cooking a pleasure.

The following service are included with the house rental. A Service person is available from 8h00 to 14h00 and from 18h00 to 20h00 daily.

The Provence region

In the famed, sun-soaked land of Provence, this house is set in peaceful surroundings perfect for exploring so many of the famed and charming towns that make the region much sought after. Shop local markets for fresh produce, local cheeses, honey, wine, and more. Hike or bike past lavender-studded fields, gaze at sunflowers, and inhale the perfume of fresh thyme, sarriette, and other local herbs

Saint-Remy-de-Provence

Visit vineyards and sample the famed local wines. There is easy access to countless other notable sites, from the magnificent Roman monuments of Arles, and the Roman Pont du Gard, the medieval village of Castillon du Gard, famous antiques centre of L’Isle-sur-la-Sorgue, and of course, Uzes, Avignon, Nimes, and Aix.

Marseille is the closest international airport, while TGV station of Avignon is a 1/2 hour away, with trains to Paris in 2/1/2 hours.
