Park La Truffière is a 3500 square meter property which 100 years ago had been part of a one hectare truffle farm. The house and the land have been renovated, restored and redesigned.
In the park itself many of the 100 year old trees have been cut down or trimmed to open up sunny spaces for the wonderful 11X 4 salt water swimming pool, the deep blue Provencal skies, the gardens, sitting and dining areas. On the other hand many trees have been retained for beauty and shade which is vitally necessary in the hot summer months.
This is a holiday in a park where you can swim, eat, read, relax and be with your family and friends in complete privacy and comfort. Ideal for families and reunions of families and friends.
The property sits in a neighborhood which is 10 minute walking distance from the lovely village where one will find five restaurants and pizzerias, cafes, three bakeries, news stand, Nougaterie and ice cream shop, pharmacy, coiffure and whatever one would need. So one can literally walk every morning to the village for croissants and bread, have a coffee, pick up the newspaper and walk back to the property for breakfast.
The house has been restored in warm Provencal colors and materials; 35 m2 living room with large open fireplace, 22m2 meter bathroom with oversized granite bathtub/ sink and walk in Italian shower, separate shower and half bathroom, 26m2 kitchen with cut stone counter tops with a small covered porch.
There are 4 bedrooms (5 bedrooms if you include the cottage with its own kitchen and bathroom), 2 in the front of the house with French doors which open to the large veranda and the park to the front side of the house. All bedrooms have double beds. There is a children bed available.
By bike, car or foot, one can visit the most beautiful villages the south of France can offer; Gordes, Venasque, Isle sur Sorgue, Avignon, Roussillon. What is the most unique thing about this area is that there is water unlike the rest of the south. This is the bread basket of France with cherry, fig, olive, melon and berries plentiful.
The ocean to Marseille or Cassis is an 1 hr drive; Avignon is a half hour drive. Bike ways (bikes can be rented), for the beginner or the most advanced all the way to the Mt Ventoux and everything in between, walkways though the vineyards and many medieval villages all nearby. Whatever your heart desires, it is here.
