This is an elegant townhouse with an acre of private park in the village of Barbentane, in southern Provence.

Avignon, with its rich history and beautiful buildings, is 6km from Barbentane at the confluence of the Durance and the Rhône.
The ancient Roman city of Arles is an easy half-hour's drive, and the scenery of the Vaucluse and Mont-Ventoux region are well within reach to the east. There are public tennis courts in Barbentane, and 9-hole and 18-hole golf courses within 10km.
The interior is very attractive with many original features, period furniture and paintings.

Set at the end of a superb alley of plane trees and flower boxes, this pleasant stone-built house dates from 1850. It is set along a village road, so traffic noise can be expected, but only at the front of the house where two double-glazed bedrooms are located. The swimming pool is located in a garden at the back of the house, and is partly shaded by centenary trees.
