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
“Owners Studio”: For parties
