This stunning property has belonged to the same, local, family since the 19th Century. An authentic, Provencal farm, it was built to stand the test of time with thick stone wall, keeping the interior cool in the Summer months and cosy in the Winter.
The family have recently fully renovated the farmhouse, with great taste, to create 3 apartments.
This one sleeps 4 people in 2 bedrooms. There’s a comfortable living room and a well equipped kitchen.
The location is a winner! Situated on the crest of a hill, there are spectacular panoramic views of the surrounding countryside – wonderful in all seasons.
The heated pool is shared between the 3 apartments and, unusually, has been constructed using local stone to create a very natural and calming finish.
Despite the rural feel, you are only 2.5 km from the pretty town of Malaucene and on the doorstep of the mighty Mont Ventoux and the Dentelles de Montmirail….
