The living room has large french doors that opening onto the patio and pool area. When the doors are open, the patio, with its retractable awning, becomes an extension of the living room. Inside are leather sofas, TV with satellite, telephone, and fireplace. Outside are dining table for six, BBQ (gas grill), ample lawn furniture and a lovely pergola perfect for dining en plein air.
The kitchen is a pleasure to work in, especially at the sink, where one can gaze out the window at flowers while washing up (or maybe you prefer to use the dishwasher). There is also an electric wall oven, microwave, freezer, refrigerator, 4-burner gas stove, and coffee maker. Nearby is the utility room with washer and dryer. Down the hall are the three air conditioned bedrooms.
The master bedroom has doors opening onto the pool and patio and has a bathroom en suite with a tub with hand shower, toilet and sink. The bed has a remote-control foot and head lift. The other two bedrooms share a bathroom that has a shower, double sink and bidet and a separate room with a water closet. Bedroom has twin beds that can be put together and another bedroom has a double bed.
Enter the garden through a gate and find a lovely, comfortable and very private property with a 5 x 10 meter private swimming pool that is open year round. For guests with children, the pool has both a fence and an alarm system. There are patios, pergola and lawn furniture all inviting the guest to enjoy the outdoor life of sunny Provence.
