It is hard to believe the house is 10 minutes away from the city centre of Aix-en-Provence when you step into this splendid 6-hectare property, as it gives off a feeling of absolute peacefulness and serenity. Set in the middle of a tree-filled park with a landscaped garden, it has the charm of traditional houses all the while offering the full comfort of a modern renovation with understated sophistication.
What will strike you first is the gorgeous setting: the country house which proudly stands out against the Provencal blue sky, the large terrace where you will enjoy watching the old ornamental lake while listening to the song of the cicadas… The change of scene will be total.
On the ground floor, opening up on the terrace thanks to large French windows, you will find the elegant and comfortable living room and the beautiful, playful and colourful kitchen, where the whole family can meet up around the large table. A back sitting room is used as a television and reading room and is very cozy.
The six bedrooms are spread out on two levels. Each has its own style and colour, and they are all very comfortable and welcoming. On the first level, you will find a bedroom with two single beds and two double bedrooms, as well as two bathrooms and two toilets.
Three double bedrooms, as well as an open lounge with two single sofa beds that can be used as a play room or as an extra bedroom, are located on the second floor.
On this level, you will also find a shower room, a bathroom and toilets.
The pool is on the right hand side of the house, above the terrace, in a green setting. An outdoors kitchen and a dining area allow you to have lunch on the terrace. Access to the pool is secured for children. They will particularly enjoy the playground with table tennis and a trampoline, while the adults will indulge in the pleasures of the famous Provencal game on the Pétanque strip.
You will want to explore this garden, to smell the plants. This is a charming place for magical holidays, with the Sainte-Victoire in the background.
