France, Provence ~ 6 Bedrooms ~ 5 Bathrooms ~ Sleeps 9 to 15

At a glance
Old farmhouse tastefully restored near AIX EN PROVENCE with 6 Bedrooms and swimming pool

Living area : 450m2 on 2 hectares. Terrace 200m2. Veranda. Fenced swimming pool 15m x10m (depth 2m) Sleeps up to 12p.
A newly renovated 450m2 mas standing on 2ha of land in unspoiled Aixoise countryside, 15mins from Aix-en-Provence and 5 mins from a pretty typical village with shops.

The house has been luxuriously renovated by a London Interior designer over the past 2 years.

Using the finest materials and a sensitivity to the local architecture the result is a stunning and chic Provencal house with a modern feel and comforts.
The fixtures and fittings are sourced from all over the world including glass chandeliers from Italy, bespoke wood carpentry from the UK, painted silk from China and also some carefully picked antiques from Italy, Sweden and the UK etc.

The long drive up to the house is flanked by cypress trees and in front of the house stands plane trees and a magnificent chestnut tree which gives  a wonderful shade to the terrace.

The pool is tiled with Bisazza glass tiles from Italy and the pool house with its banquettes makes a wonderful place to have some shade from the Provence sun or lazy evenings watching the sun set.
