Property description

Our beautiful single storey home is built around a shady central courtyard but has views in all directions. There are four bedrooms, four bathrooms (three of which are ensuite). The living room has glass walls on two sides opening onto the covered terraces and the wonderful views over the garden, the heated pool and beyond. The huge kitchen, light and airy, also has huge sliding doors onto the covered terrace; the kitchen table seats ten and there is also a fully equipped back kitchen (walk in pantry).
A large dining room opens both into the courtyard and out to the garden and olive grove (table seats ten).
There is also a television room and a laundry.
The courtyard is also equipped with seating and another dining table, as are the covered terraces, allowing for many different possibilities depending on the weather or your mood.
The 15 x 5 metre heated salt water mosaic tiled swimming pool is surrounded by the olive trees and the views of the rocky hills surrounding the property are sublime.
My husband's architectural practice is next door to the house which means there is a source of information available during office hours in the week. The office in no way impinges on the house.

Car: Necessary

Our property is set nestled and hidden in the heart of the Alpilles hills, at the very centre of Roman Provence.The property is surrounded by olive trees and beyond these are pines and rocky outcrops on all sides. A shady central courtyard is perfect for lunch or supper outdoors and there are extensive covered terraces around the living areas. We are a short drive from St Rémy and from Arles, both bursting with history. The Alpilles are studded with small villages all with different characters and attractions. Our local villages of Maussane and le Paradou, just five minutes in the car, are full of excellent local bakers, butchers, grocers, restaurants that we'll be happy to point you towards. The house is perfectly situated to make the most of the many historical sites and villages or just perfect for chilling out by the pool. Arles still uses both its Roman arena and theatre for shows and events of all sorts. There are markets on different days in all the local villages where you can buy an almost infinite array of local produce from cheeses to olives and even to live chickens. These markets are a must in summer, bursting with colour, produce and new discoveries.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: I moved to Provence with my husband David in 1989, from London. We immediately fell in love with the area, our children were born here, and in a blink twenty-seven years have passed!

Why the Owner Chose Les Baux-de-Provence, France:
We lived previously in Paradou - all of 5km away! - and wanted find a house in the hills. When we arrived at the entrance we were so taken with the views we said we would buy it without even seeing the house. You will see what I mean when you get here!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This is a really wonderful spot, spectacular scenery, total peace and quiet and yet only minutes from a hot cup of coffee and croissant in our local village!
