Property Description

Dating from 1762, when it was believed to have been a posthouse, the property has been professionally restored with antique materials and decorative finishes, creating a warm and welcoming atmosphere. The unique collection of furnishings (featured in Elle Décoration magazine) are also available for sale.



All rooms are light and well-proportioned and the splendid main salon, in excess of 100 sqm, has seven sets of french windows and under-floor heating. The ceilings have massive painted beams and the floors on both ground and first floor are, for the main part, in period terra cotta tiles. The décor is in pale tones and bathroom fittings are in white, retro-style.



To the front of the house is a walled courtyard with exotic plantings around an ancient olive tree. The landscaped grounds are full of interest and a 13m swimming pool is ideally sited on the west. A long wing of outbuildings extends to the south provides garaging and workshops and an independent guardians' lodging. Land, 2.9 hectares in all.
