Description / 3 bedrooms ( 1 x180.1x140.2x90)+ 2 baths --
House : 1100 sq.ft. Garden about 12,000 sq.ft + Garage and parking area In the midst of the greenery, all watered green by an automatic irrigation system, is the immense 6 m X 12 m (19.5' X 39.5') rectangular pool, which has steps at one end. Tucked against the east wall is the pool house, which has a shaded sitting area with wicker chairs where guests may relax in the shade.
The pool house also provides storage for four lounge chairs and a portable charcoal barbecue. Overlooking the garden is the lovely wide stone terrace that runs along the entire south facade of the house. Here guests may enjoy an al fresco meal at a wrought-iron table with glass top and chairs for six, and a parasol if necessary for shade. With its low stone walls for seating the terrace is also a delightful area for a small cocktail party.
The house also has an array of amenities that make for easy living. These include a television in the living room with satellite reception, including CNN and BBC, high-quality bedding with firm mattresses in all three bedrooms, an all-year central heating system and, in the garage, parking for two cars as well as a laundry area with American-style washing machine and separate dryer.
Among Villa Le Remois's outstanding features is the spacious and well-appointed kitchen. The color scheme - cabinets in a rich sky blue, white walls and pale yellow tile counters - combine with wall shelves and the sloping hood over the four-burner gas cooktop to create the feeling of a country kitchen. Appliances include a wall-mounted conventional and microwave oven, large two-door refrigerator and a dishwasher. There is plenty of counter and cabinet space, and the room receives abundant sunshine from a wide window over the double sink.
On the other side of the foyer are three bedrooms, all bright and simply but tastefully decorated with wicker or unpainted wood pieces with stenciled Provencal designs.
The master bedroom, blue with white accents, has a queen-sized bed in a wrought-iron frame, French doors that open directly onto the terrace, and an ensuite bath, tiled in white, with a stall shower and WC. The second bedroom, which has a rust-and-yellow-plaid color scheme, has a 140cm (55" across) double bed and a window overlooking the garden. The third bedroom, which has no particular view, has twin beds in wrought-iron frames.
All three bedrooms have bedside tables with reading lamps, and armoires or in-wall closet space. In the hallway within a few steps of the second and third bedrooms is a large and well-illuminated bath, tiled in white, with tub, twin basins and a separate stall shower. Next to it is an independent WC.
All furnishings new, and decorated in a modern provencal style.
