Les Fontaines is a wonderful, 18th century Provence France Mas, lovingly restored to the highest standards and set in a walled garden on the edge of the bustling village of Pernes les Fontaines.
Set over three floors, this spacious Provence France villa is decorated in pale, neutral colours with cool stone and terracotta floors and is sympathetically furnished with antiques. The delightful garden has mature trees and shrubs, a cherry orchard, and fountains add an air of tranquillity.
Pernes-les-Fontaines is a lively, picturesque village in Provence France, with shops, bars and restaurants. Nearby Isle-sur-la-Sorgue is hailed as the antiques centre of Europe. The beautiful city of Avignon sits on the banks of the Rhone only 16 miles away. Now a UNESCO World Heritage site and home to the world' s largest gothic palace, a day in this cultural city should not be missed.
This is a superb property, one of my favourites. The villa itself has a lovely walled garden and a wonderful covered barn for outdoor dining and relaxing. We receive so many requests for villas where you can walk to shops and restaurants, and this fits the bill exactly. It only takes about three minutes on foot to reach the centre of the village. In Place Louis Giraud you will find an excellent restaurant Au Fil du Temps which is small but very popular - do book in advance to avoid disappointment. Another restaurant to try is Cote Jardin. And if you are keen to do a lot of shopping, it's only a 15 minute drive to Carpentras.
