La Ferme is a large traditional Mas dating from the 18th century. It is a very impressive property standing alone within 25 acres of open countryside. The house is conveniently located between 1.5 miles from two charming Provencal villages and is approximately 25 minutes by car from the cultural center of Aix.
Both the house and pool are enclosed within a walled garden creating a secluded and very private environment. The grey/green shuttered house is flanked by large "platane" trees creating shady areas. The lawned gardens are on two levels, the lower with a large south facing terrace between the house and the pool. Here, one has the option of alfresco eating by the edge of the pool underneath the shade of a vine-covered arbor. The pool - 12m x 5m, heated, ozone treated, not chlorine, pool house with WC, shower and changing room. Alternatively there is a second shaded terrace, with large gas BBQ, situated behind the house, bordered with flowers and herbs with a huge stone dining table.
The house has been meticulously restored and is full of many beautiful Provencal antiques and paintings while providing elegant, spacious and comfortable accommodation with the benefits of a fully equipped modern kitchen. The many facilities include a Satellite TV, DVD player, fax/telephone, books and CD music system/Ipod speakers.
Furthermore the house lends itself very well to an out of season holiday with the benefits of full central heating, open fireplace and heated swimming pool. Ample garaging, BBQ, Boules and Table Tennis. WIFI throughout.
