This traditional Provencal vacation villa is set just outside the village of Le Rouret, an area famous for the jasmine, roses, orange blossom and violets grown for the perfumeries nearby. The large pool and deck area offers sweeping views down over the wooded valley. There is a traditional Provencal outdoor kitchen with its own wood-burning oven. The bedrooms are light and spacious, one with a private balcony and one with direct access to the ground-floor terraces. This home is overflowing with traditional and elegant Provencal-style.
You’ll feel like you’ve gone back in time vacationing here in the French countryside. Visions of lavender fields, olive trees, fine wines and stunning Mediterranean views haunt past visitors, drawing them back to the south of France. Provence has been immortalized by Peter Mayle and Van Gogh, and its idealized image certainly precedes it. This villa is located in the charming village of Le Rouret, just above the Côte d’Azur. Although quaint, Le Rouret is a vibrant village with a bakery, daily market, delicatessen and even a Michelin-starred restaurant.
When you enter, you will instantly be immersed in the refined atmosphere of this exceptional venue, a private mansion from the 18th centure. From the cour d’honneur to the magnificent private gardens, and many historic rooms, it’s like traveling back in time.
You can’t help but fall in love with the Old Town of Aix. The architecture is stunning and the many old stone fountains and structures are awesome to see. This low key yet vibrant town has tons of old world character with lots of cute shops and restaurants. It’s a wonderful way to spend a day.
Dotted around the center of Aix are several farmers markets that can be found on various days of the week. Selling everything from fresh fruit and veggies, to meat, fish, herbs and spices, bread, cakes, soap, flowers, and plants. They are wonderful places to wander around, and sample your way through all the delicious foods offered by the different local vendors.
