Property description

Be the master of your own domain. A private chef and concierge are available. The large pool and pool house and the extensive grounds ensure the choice of touring the surrounding area or simply relaxing is yours. The Villa has a private wine cellar containing approximately one thousand bottles which augments a professionally maintained kitchen. Cooking classes are available. Whether you choose to prepare your own meals, enjoy the surrounding restaurants or have our chef cook for you you will not be disappointed.

Villa Fontaine sits within its own private estate of five acres of wooded parkland, yet ten minutes from the centre of Aix-en-Provence. It can sleep ten people in five beautiful bedrooms, and two in its private chalet in the grounds. You can host large parties around its terrace and pool house, with its own well designed kitchen. Ideal for wedding and family celebrations. Yet with enough quiet space to suit most moods.

Marseilles International Airport 25 minute drive, TGV Aix-en-Provence rail station 15mins. (TGV Paris - Aix 2.5hrs). Car Hire available from both.

Within easy reach of Arles or Avignon Villa Fontaine is also well situated for exploring the south of France. West to the salt lagoons & flamingos of the Camargue, east to the wilds of the Gorges of Verdon and pre-Alps (skiing in winter)), and south to the colourful sophistication's of the Cote d' Azur, a pleasure to explore in the quiet of winter.


The palace of the Popes in Avignon, the Roman Arena of Arles and the tree-lined boulevards of the university city of Aix-en-Provence offer more local surprise and charm as well as quality shopping and a host of Cultural events for example the Aix Music Festival and Opera, Museums and excellent restaurants, The International Photography Meeting in Arles along with its Roman Theatre.
