Three hectares in Provence, Les Alpilles

Three hectares in Provence

With olive trees as far as the eye can see and an amazing view of the Alpilles mountain range, this property is a true peace haven. The domain houses two typical Provence homes for a tally of 450 sq m of living space. One features 300 sq m of living space dispatched over two levels with an entrance hall, a dining room, a 40-sq m kitchen, a laundry room, a TV room and a vintage-floor living room opening onto a patio. Upstairs, the three bedrooms open onto two terraces. Outside, the inner courtyard with its orange grove leads to the guest house. The latter provides 150 sq m of living space and three bedrooms with separate bathrooms. "The warm decoration emphasizes the wide clearances and the noble materials," says Valancogne & Partners. The estate is part of a 3-ha park planted with trees featuring plane trees, 8-m-high cypresses, a stone pond, a fountain and an amazing 18x11m infinity pool. The property is only 30 minutes away from the Avignon TGV railway station and 50 minutes from Marseille International Airport.

Proposed price: 5,300,000 euros
