Enjoy lunch on the dreamy terrace at the back – or in the dappled shade of the planes. This Provencale farmhouse sits in eight acres of orchards, olive groves and gardens. Spend all day by the pool, but make time for the grand old towns of Arles, Avignon, Aix, Nimes and Orange.
Great for celebratory parties, the house sleeps a total of 18. The kitchen is fabulous, the living rooms bright and airy, and the bedrooms (all but two) are on the two upper floors, reached by two separate staircases. The style is ‘country’ throughout, harmonious and traditional.
Pop into Saint Andiol for your croissants and baguettes. It’s a two-minute drive or seven by bike. Later, dine in lovely, leafy St Rémy. In spite of its chic restaurants and boho boutiques, this once sleepy town is a world away from the Côte d’Azur.
