Luxury, quiet and authenticity

A beautiful row of plane trees faces the farmhouse

At the heart of a 56-ha estate, surrounded by wheat- and sunflower fields, this Alpilles farmhouse overlooks the valley. The terrace, planted with hundred-year-old trees, is an ideal location to enjoy the panorama in absolute quiet. “Rebuilt in a vintage 18th century style, the property magnifies the colours, smells and magic of Provence,” Emile Garcin says. With multiple openings, the large house faces South and provides more than 700 sq m of living space, dispatched over two levels. On either side of the wrought iron staircase, a series of ensuite rooms include a dining room with a stone fireplace, a wine cellar, a vast kitchen (with a dining area and another fireplace) that opens onto the terrace, a big living room/orangery with a huge bay window, a lounge/library with a marble fireplace, and another reception area that opens onto the garden via a flagstone terrace. Six spacious bedrooms with private bathrooms are located upstairs. In the west wing, a separate Master suite features a study, a bedroom with a lounge, a dressing, a bathroom and a terrace. A small Provencal outhouse, a pool, a rose garden and a keeper's house round out the sale. Close to Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, the property is just 25 minutes away from the TGV station and close to the Nîmes, Marseille and Avignon airports.

Pricen : 10 à 12 millions d’euros.
