                              'La Residence' is a beautiful property set in over 2-acres of lawns and garden. Surrounded by mature oak and pine trees, you will discover the peace and beauty of Provence whilst benefitting from the convenience of having restaurants, farm and village shops, only a few minutes away.

                              Ideal family home - children are welcome! Extra maid service and babysitting available at request. The house has been designed and fitted with thought and detail to make sure every stay is memorable and frustration free.

                              Some of the most breathtaking and fun destinations are within 40 miles. A few minutes away, ‘le grand marché’, the Aix-en-Provence market is a not-to-be missed experience. And when you've had enough of driving a lazy day by the pool, reading in the library or dining under the gazebo as the long, summer days, draw to a close nourishes the soul. For the more energetic, we recommend hide-and-seek in the gardens or a post-lunch game of Petangue.
