Ref - Paradise In Provence, with private fishing! Two stone built period Provencal Farmhouses completely renovated to an exceptional standard. Situated in an extraordinarily beautiful river setting on six acres of parkland, this is a nature loverâs paradise. The two houses can be lived in as one family home or separately, and offer 7 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms and numerous indoor and outdoor living and entertainment areas.
Wonderful tropical gardens surround the house and (salt water) swimming pool area. These lead onto open parkland and down to the river, which is bordered by woodland of towering silver birch and aspen. Heron, kingfisher, terrapins, cormorant and wild duck are all a common sight.
The ruins of an ancient flour mill with waterfall and mill pool complement the river. Perfect for both swimming in the summer and fishing. It is possible to catch a variety of fish including carp, pike, perch, bream and trout from 300yds of riverbank. The park offers an environment with endless possibilities for recreation.
The property is situated on the edge of a tiny hamlet and the extensive grounds afford total privacy to the house and garden. 45 minutes from Cannes and St Tropez. 1 hour to Nice airport.
Provence: Provence in south-eastern France extends from the lower Rhone River on the west to the Italian border on the east, and from the Mediterranean in the south to the mountains in the north. Today it mostly falls within the administrative region known as Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur. For visitors, there is the rich history, but there is also one of the most alluring and beautiful coastlines in the world, mountains, rivers, the deepest and most beautiful canyons in Europe, and hundreds of thousands of square kilometres of natural forest reserves.
Add to all that a quality of life and a climate renowned and recognised around the world â 300 days of sunshine, world class wines and gastronomy, and the absolute freedom to enjoy it all.
Put together these qualities make Provence and the Cote dâAzur the most sought after destination for holidays, for second homes and for primary living that exist anywhere in todayâs world. It is a trend that began millennia ago, but gathered momentum with the arrival of the railway in the latter half of the 19th Century. With easier access and travel, and the popularity the region quickly acquired with the Victorian English and the Russian aristocracy, Provence âtook offâ.
Today Provence is the jewel of France, and very few doubt it.
