Description

The space

The house was built about 30 years ago, in a provençal style. Old materials (beams, doors) coming from old houses and castles (up to 16th century) have been used, which give the house a particular authentic style.

The house has two main living levels (and several undergrounds). As it is on a slopy terrain, each level can be reached from outside.

The ground floor is composed of

-A huge air conditioned double living room (50 m2 + 20 m2), including dining place, living room, open fire (not to be used in sumlmer!) and piano. It has a sigle bed and a convertible sofa which can be used as an additional bed.
-A big provençal style kitchen with all equipment
-A big air conditioned sleeping room with double bed
-Bathroom, toilet
-Equipped with TV, washing machine, etc.

The first floor is composed of
-Two bedrooms with double bed and private balcony
-One bedroom with twin beds
-Bathroom and toilet.

The ground floor opens to a wide garden with gras and trees, with a wide open view up to 40 km (Massif de la Sainte Baume), and a huge paved terrace with a large swimming pool (12 * 5 m), pool house with summer kitchen, shower and toilet. The swimming pool is 100 to 170 cm deep, and it is secured by 2 alarms for children protection.

The multi level private terrain is 5000 m2 and includes olive trees and woods.

A large private partly covered parking is available, for up to 5 or 6 cars.

Great place with a wonderful host! The villa fully met its description and our expectations. The house has 4 separate bedrooms, all quite cozy and nice to use. Luc went a long way to great us personally and explain all about the house. He also was extremely friendly and bought us a lot of food and drinks since we arrived on Sunday and all the shops were closed. He also provided us with lots of useful information about the places we could go to, especially beaches. A great hypermarket (Carrefour) is 12 minutes away with all what you might need. One remark - future renters should understand that the house is 50 minutes drive away from the closest beach. Overall I would totally recommend to everybody to rent this house.

I am an airline pilot and i traveled much.
I will soon need a place to rest and have a quieter life.
I have searched for that place for 2 years, and i visited about 150 houses before i decided that this was the one : because of the charm of its view, of the refinement of the material used to build it, and of course, of its swimming pool!
