Arriving at this home through an elegant iron double gate, into the ground floor vestibule, there is a noticeable feeling of charm and serenity. The elegant entryway takes you upstairs (from the “Rez-de-chaussee” or street level), to a light, bright great room. Very stylish, it was recently remodeled and decorated for comfort. The great room is a combination of Living, Dining and a very well appointed Kitchen.
Whether it’s relaxing with a book, listening to your favorite music or cooking your Provençal favorites, after a day’s bicycling, hiking or sightseeing and exploring, this is just the environment.
In the Living Room …... A comfortable leather sofa and sofa bed provide plenty of relaxing space. Amenities include French and English television, DVD player that plays American and European DVD’s, CD Player, Ipod docking station and a small library of DVD’s, books and magazines. Internet access (wireless and wired) and a telephone for your use to call land lines anywhere in Europe, North America, Australia or New Zealand at no charge.
The kitchen is modern and fully equipped …… just waiting for you to make the most of your culinary skills with the fabulous fresh ingredients available locally. The walls of the kitchen area are finished in a rich terra cotta color, with stone and terra cotta tiles and a rich wood counter top. Quality appliances include an electric stove top, oven, microwave oven, dishwasher and large refrigerator/freezer as well as a complete supply of cookware and appliances.
The dining area, furnished with a round glass dining table and four chairs comfortably accommodates your guests who will definitely appreciate the results of your cooking.
Climbing five steps from this room, takes you to two comfortable, spacious bedrooms and two full bathrooms. The bedrooms are furnished and decorated for comfort, relaxation and tranquility. One bedroom has a queen sized bed while the second bedroom has two twin (single) beds.
The Baume… A ground level, covered terrace…. calm …. cool ……. relaxing. It makes its way from the entry vestibule, with its dark tiled floor and white washed sandstone walls, right into the hill that our village is built on. A great place to have a casual outdoor meal, enjoy aperitifs before your meal, lay back and read a book in the coolness or enjoy a candlelit dinner in this space. Our baume takes full advantage of the hillside location of the village. A dining table, six chairs and buffet fill the front of the baume (near to the adjacent “summer kitchen”), while in the large space behind this area, we have a Table Tennis (Ping Pong) Table –
As you breakfast here, the morning light streams into the east facing space and reflects off the back wall creating a picture perfect moment.
In the heat of the day, the sandstone walls of the terrace provide a cool repose for lunch. In the evening, relax over pre dinner glass of our great Sablet wine ……
…… this is a truly unique and very Provencal outdoor space.
