Ferme du Val is located between two picturesque villages, Lambesc and St Cannat, and under 30 minutes by car from the cultural centre of Aix en Provence and 20 minutes from the Luberon. The building dates from the 18th century, a traditional stone "mas" which was originally the main farm serving the nearby Chateau. The International schools in Aix are only a 30 minute drive away.
The house is situated in open countryside, within 25 acres of grounds. Both the house and the heated pool are enclosed within a walled garden creating a secluded and very private environment and perfect for children to run around in. The grey/green shuttered house is flanked by large "platane" trees creating shady areas.
The lawned gardens are on two levels, the lower with a large south facing terrace between the house and the pool. Here, one has the option of alfresco eating by the edge of the pool underneath the shade of an arbour covered with vines–the grapes are edible! Alternatively there is a second dining option outside–a terrace situated behind the house, bordered with flowers and herbs, with a large gas bbq. Pool–12m x 5m, heated, ozone treated, not chlorine, pool house with WC, shower and changing room.
The farm has been meticulously restored and is full of many lovely Provencal antiques and paintings whilst providing elegant, spacious and comfortable accommodation with the benefits of a fully equipped modern kitchen and 6 bathrooms. The many facilities include Satellite TV/DVD, WIFI / telephone and mp3 speakers. Furthermore the house lends itself very well to an out of season holiday with the benefits of full central heating, open fireplaces and heated swimming pool. Ample garaging, BBQ, Table Tennis and Boules. Sleeps 14 people. The house is suitable for small or large groups due to the layout of the house. Ideal for a family taking a sabbatical and have lots of friends and family visiting!
