Just 500 metres away, the charming village of Menerbes, described as one of the most beautiful villages in France, offers an authentic taste of Provencal village life with the market, shops and restaurants.
Spacious and attractive, this villa was designed by an architect in traditional Provencal style with a large open fireplace and terracotta tiled floors. It is decorated with warm, Mediterranean colours and has a recently renovated kitchen and air-conditioned first floor bedroom. The enchanting garden offers views from every corner, whether dining under the shade of a tree, soaking up the sun around the pool, enjoying a game of boules, or just sitting and relaxing with a good book and a glass of local wine.
