Les Olives, Haute Gaudran, Salernes, Provence

A Traditional Provencal Villa with private heated pool set in a peaceful rural location in the heart of Provence. Sleeping 9-12 (in 4-5 bedrooms) Les Olives is ideal for single families, two families or couples sharing, and is a spacious, open-plan, single-storey home boasting beautiful south facing views set within 2500 square metres of private well maintained grounds.

It has a fruit orchard of walnut, apple, cherry and apricot trees - perfect for an afternoon game of badminton, football match, or boules. There is a Ping Pong table for exuberant family tournaments and a double hammock for lazy, “recovery” catnapping in the shade of the walnut tree.

Situated in a quiet hamlet, 'Les Olives' is 1km from the village of Salernes - a perfect bracing walk for the morning croissant et pain au chocolate fresh from the village patisserie.

The house has glass doors opening onto terraces on 2 sides with a poolside barbecue area and prep sink with running water. There are several dining areas, one shaded in high summer by a natural canopy of mulberry-plane trees. There is also under-floor heating and a centrally placed open fireplace for rentals during the cooler months. The pool is heated in the low-season (high season as well, by arrangement) and there is a wonderful hot water outdoor shower for al fresco ablutions!

“Owners Studio”: For parties requiring additional accommodation, there is a further 5th bedroom with ensuite shower available for an extra cost (see tariff page.)
