The mild and sunny year-round climate and the superb facilities mean that a holiday at this Provencal villa is never without an activity, even off-season. Catering for the active and less energetic, with an infinity-edge heated, 15m x 6m saltwater pool, a range of indoor and outdoor games and sporting equipment, plentiful wine, and numerous indoor and outdoor quiet areas there is room for everyone to simply unwind and enjoy. Our property manager can provide advice on a range of services to help you maximize your precious time.

Outdoor Entertainment

The Pools

There are 2 heated* saltwater pools. The larger 15m x 6m pool is flanked by 10 sun loungers, parasols and the shaded summer kitchen and lounge. An infinity edge adds drama, and an underwater seat running along the length of the pool is ideal for cooling off. The smaller pool for younger kids to splash around is available upon request.

The large pool has an electric pool cover. "Safe T" turtle wristbands for children and access to the children's pool are available on request. We would draw your attention to the infinity edge and urge you to exercise the utmost caution at all times.

*Pool heating is included during peak season, but may be at an additional cost in May and September.
