Provence Villa 1081
This beautiful property, originally a Bergerie, dating from the 17th century, has been completely restored throughout, using authentic materials.
It is linked to a smaller building by a glassed in living area, with sliding glass doors opening on one side to a terrace with outdoor dining area, shaded by a large chestnut tree and, on the other to the terrace with swimming pool (10 x 5m), and wooden sunloungers. Within the well maintained lawned garden are many flower beds, large trees, olive trees and lavender.
There is also a ping pong table.The property is just off the main road which runs between Puyricard and Aix-en-Provence and is accessed by electric gates. Puyricard is just 5 minutes drive and, within walking distance, there is a food shop selling a variety of produce. The centre of Aix-en-Provence is 4 kilometres away.
