This property is situated on the picturesque Vauvenargues road, 10 kilometres from Aix en Provence, in a dramatic rocky setting, dominated by Mont Ste Victoire. The village of Vauvenargues with its chateau, once the home of Picasso, as well as a well stocked grocery shop and boulangerie, is 1 kilometre away.
Built in traditional stone, with blue shutters, the rooms open to a flat lawned garden, with lavender, olive trees, cypress and oleander. There are views to a pine forest just beyond, and in the other direction behind the house, to the rocky mountainous landscape.. Within the garden, there is a fenced wimming pool (11 x 6m) with whirlpool at one end, good for children, as the shallow end slopes gradually. The garden has night lighting and there is also a ping pong table. The spacious and light interiors are simply, but tastefully furnished in a traditional style.
