It can sleep ten people in five beautiful bedrooms, and two in its private chalet in the grounds (Nanny or teens). And host large parties around its terrace and pool house, with its own well designed kitchen. Ideal for wedding and family celebrations. And enough quiet space to suit most moods.

West to the salt lagoons & flamingos of the Camargue, east to the wilds of the Gorges of Verdon and pre-Alps (skiing in winter)), and south to the colourful sophistication's of the Cote d’Azur, a pleasure to explore in the quiet of winter.
