This charming old farmhouse, built in 1852, has a strong Provençal ambiance with sash windows, wooden shutters, courtyards and lofty ceilings.The main house has been meticulously restored; each comfortably large bedroom having its own sitting area, log fireplace and huge beautiful old bathroom.
The original well and Dutch oven are still in use, as is the old barn (with wooden doors big enough for a horse and hay cart to pass through) and stables which have been made as comfortable as the main house and also furnished with English and French antiques plus our own crafted furniture of iron, wood and rattan.
