Villa St Edouard is one of three modern, independent and spacious villas set in a private location, close to the bustling town of Pernes les Fontaines.
The owner is a local farmer who still grows strawberries and melons on the land surrounding the villas. This means you not only benefit the calm and rural setting, but are also treated to an array of locally grown fruit and vegetables as the season progresses!
The Villa has 3 light and airy bedrooms (2 double one twin) 2 bathrooms, large living/dining area and fully fitted integrated kitchen. Everything is pristine and squeaky clean.
The owner has chosen beautiful bright fabrics and used traditional Provencal style to decorate the interiors, but has also gone for useful luxuries such as air-conditioning.
Despite being one of 3 villas, you certainly won’t feel cramped by the neighbours as each has 2000m of private garden, a large terrace, a garage and driveway. All three share the beautiful, heated swimming pool which is securely fenced and gated and only a short walk from your villa.
Living area: The open-plan living/dining area provides plenty of space for relaxing and is comfortably equipped with a sofa bed and TV. Lovely French doors lead out onto your shaded terrace or into the beautiful Provencal sun. As with the rest of the villa, the living room is air conditioned.
Kitchen: The fully fitted kitchen is equipped with fridge, freezer, oven, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine and dryer and pretty much everything else you could need for up to 6 people.
Bedrooms: There are a total of three bedrooms in the villa – two doubles and a twin. With everything being on the ground floor, each bedroom has direct access to the garden or terrace.
Bathrooms: To alleviate those morning queues, there are two shower rooms, (one with WC), and a separate WC.
Outside: The outside is a treat! There are two terraces on either side of the house, so you can choose whether to sit in the sun or the shade, or just find some peace! This is all set in 2000m2 of garden, providing loads of space to enjoy the long summer days. Furniture is supplied for you to dine outside during the pleasant evenings, or to just lounge about during the day! Plenty of car parking is provided.
Children: are made very welcome and for the younger ones there’s a swing set, slide and trampoline to keep them busy.
Swimming pool: The communal, heated swimming pool is shared with the three other villas on the site but, at 10m x 5m, it’s easily large enough for everybody to do a few lengths, or just frolic about! It’s open from April to mid September.
