Aix-en-Provence property | France

A most beautiful and unique property to come on the market in this region

Behind beautiful wrought iron and stone gates is an estate of 25 acres of rolling views to the mountains in the South, olive groves and lavender, cypress trees, mature oaks and fruit orchards. Here you and your family can relax in your own personal haven of peace. Away from the tourists and hustle and bustle of the teeming Cote d’Azur, this estate is bathed in the sunshine, tranquillity and richness that is Aix-en-Provence and the Luberon.

This estate is one the rarest of properties in Provence. Set in the heart of its own parkland gardens, with a beautiful main house and extensive outbuildings, the property benefits from plenty of light and space. With incredible views over the rich French countryside to the mountains of the Massif de l’Etoile in the far south, this estate and its buildings blends tradition and modernity on the doorstep of cultural Aix-en-Provence, one of the most vibrant, beautiful and entertaining cities in France.

For the Golf enthusiasts, the property is perfectly situated, across the road from the 18-hole golf course of the nearby Set Club which offers spectacular views, tennis and paddle courts, gym, beauty treatments and a full range of restaurants and services.
