This imposing bastide, dating from the early 18th century offers all the elegance of France's Golden age. It is located in the countryside, yet it is only a 15 minute walk to the vibrant centre of St Remy-de-Provence, the capital of les Alpilles.
The pleasures of a 10 hectare walled estate, with a welcoming tree lined entrance drive, a formal French garden, an olive grove, a large heated swimming pool of 14 x 7m, a well equipped and comfortable orangerie and a private floodlight tennis court, is only equalled by the charm and style of the interiors of the bastide, which suggests gracious living as only the French know how.
High ceilings, original beams, beautiful stone floors, some of the original hand painted wallpaper, beautiful and stylish furnishings, fine antiques, and some rather splendid (both oldand modern) paintings blend perfectly and seamlessly with contemporary amenities.
