Down a long drive at the end of a country lane lies this handsome building. The home of friendly Guido and Ann, their young son and three dogs, it’s peacefully set in 17 acres of gardens and woodland, and has superb views of Mont Ventoux. Oozing style and elegance, from shabby chic to pop art, expect parquet floors, a stone fireplace, light spacious bedrooms, a Jacuzzi bath and smart bathrooms. Lavish breakfasts are served in the garden; fresh produce abounds. Wander the grounds, take a dip in the pool, hike the mountains, visit Orange and Avignon, or sample the local wines. It’s just a ten-minute drive to shops and restaurants.
