This property is situated on the picturesque Vauvenargues road, 10 kilometres from Aix-en-Provence.
The dramatic rocky landscape here is dominated by Mont Ste Victoire. The village of Vauvenargues with its chateau, once the home of Picasso, is 1 kilometre away and also has a grocery shop and boulangerie.
The house would very much suit a family or group of friends looking for proximity to Aix, and wanting to explore the area. Built in traditional stone, with blue shutters, the rooms open to a lovely flat lawned garden at the rear, with lavender and olive trees, against a background of pine trees, and with views of the countryside and rocky hills beyond.
Within the garden, there is a lovely swimming pool (11 x 6m) with whirlpool at one end, good for children as the shallow end slopes gradually. The garden has automatic night lighting and there is a ping pong table in the garage.
The spacious interiors are simply, but tastefully furnished, and newly decorated in light colours. The living and dining room open to the terrace and garden and, off the kitchen, there is a summer dining area with attractive wooden furniture and a barbecue.
The property is accessed via electric security gates, and there is an alarm system in the house.
