This traditional Provence farmhouse has been recently renovated into a superb luxury villa. With five bedrooms, exquisite design inside and out, plus a private infinity pool, it’s an incredibly stylish base from which to explore the French countryside.
Les Moutons is a rural idyll that’s easily accessible from Avignon, just a 35-minute drive from the airport, or 45 minutes from the train station. From here, you can admire the majestic Massif des Alpilles mountains in the distance. It’s well worth the half-hour drive north to the mountains and its Natural Regional Park; take one of the nature trails up and you’ll be rewarded with panoramic views. Those preferring a more gastronomic adventure will find plenty of opportunities to sample local delicacies in the pretty villages of Maussane-les-Alpilles and Les Baux-de-Provence, a 10 and 20-minute drive, respectively.
This is a wonderfully spacious property, with 350sqm of living space in the house, which sits in extensive private gardens of nearly 4,800sqm. Inside, natural materials of stone and oak are artfully blended with sumptuous furnishings. In summer, guests can step out from the fully-equipped kitchen onto a south-facing terrace for al fresco dinners. As the nights draw in, gather round the magnificent fireplace in the impressive vaulted sitting room. There are five bedrooms/suites, each with its own individual character. The grounds are separated into two spaces: a private garden on the west side of the house, and a large, south-facing garden with an infinity pool. This uniquely designed pool is 16m long, with water fed into it from a purpose-built channel that runs through the garden, alongside the pool house. The landscaped gardens are a delight to stroll around, with olive trees and contemporary sculpture dotting the immaculate lawns.
Les Moutons is a beautiful blend of sophisticated modern design and rural charm. Whether it’s a luxury family holiday or a couples’ weekend away, this spacious property offers a private and peaceful retreat with stunning views of the Provencal countryside.
