About our home

A lovely villa in a calm residential area all on one level so good for the kids and the older generation as no sets of stairs to climb. A large garden with swimming pool and trampoline and all fenced in so our dog cannot escape and if you have children they will be safe to play outside. A large terrace, with a stone barbeque for outdoor meals we usually start in march as you are in the sunny South of France. Indoors the ground floor has 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms and a kitchen than can easily fit 6 in for a meal. So if you want to mellow out in the South of France with Marseille and Aix en Provence not far away as well as the sea and the mountains this is the place for you especially.
