Situated in 2 acres of garden, with olive trees and lavender, this delightful 18th century farmhouse, full of character and tastefully furnished, commands uninterrupted views of the surrounding countryside. A short distance away from the house, there is a large enclosed L shaped pool (12x5m, in 2 directions), with a diving board and many stone terraces set amongst shady trees where you are sure to find refuge from the summer heat. The house is well positioned for access to the local village, Aix en Province and others major Provencal towns, cities and beaches. This 18th century farmhouse is rich in character and charm and furnished to very high standards. Its thick walls and leafy surroundings enable it to keep fresh during the summer months, essential in the Provencal climate.

A magical place
It really is a magical place and only wish we could have stayed for a month. Fantastic grounds and views and a great pool at the centre of it all.
Highlights were trips to Avignon and several to Aix, but we also got to see Salon and the Aqueduct in a walk from the plateau. Followed by lunch on the plateau.
Our thanks again
Smashing view, great location to visit Provence
We really enjoyed our stay in this typically provencal house , huge pool with a diving board and a garden filled with olive trees and plenty of space for the kids to play. The location is perfect, shops within a minute of the house and great access for visiting

A wonderfully comfortable and charming house set in gorgeous mature terraced gardens with a lovely large pool area. The garden was a total adventure playground for the children, with its different terraces, and was a real surprise. It is so private but has wonderful views to Ventabren village and the surrounding countryside. We planned on using the house mainly as a base for touring, but it was so comfortable and charming that we spent a lot of time there, relaxing in the garden and lazing around the pool. The terrace beside the house is perfect for dining and we sat there most nights, chatting late into the night while sipping the excellent local wine. The house is in a great location too, a short distance to the local towns and many restaurants. It made for one of the most enjoyable and relaxing holidays in years. Our family totally loved it !.
