Contemporary Villa, Villevielle, France
This lovely newly-built villa in the Gard region of France captures the essence of the French Mediterranean lifestyle. Simply designed, with an open and airy feel, it is bold without being fussy and simple without being bland – the best of contemporary style. We love the clean lines and elegant furnishings, which combine modern design with a lovely natural feel.
The home has four bedrooms, the largest of which has a California king-sized bed, with en-suite bathroom and a large soaking tub. The second master bedroom has a queen-sized bed and en-suite bathroom, while the other two share a bathroom.
Indoor opens out into surrounding nature, with two outdoor terraces, a large heated swimming pool and a pétanque court. The property is surrounded by abundant trees and flowers.
The house has a spacious state-of-the-art kitchen with an outdoor built-in grill and a handmade 4m dining table that seats up to 12 people. Chef services are available on request.
Other features include a gas fireplace, radiant heated floors and televisions. Bicycles, games and portable speaker systems are included with the rental fee.
The local area offers much to do, from visiting wineries, gardens and beaches, to hiking, bicycling, dining and clubbing. There are plenty of local markets and small farmers markets if you want to shop for your own food, as well as various charming restaurants in the village and some wonderful gastronomic destinations within easy driving distance.
The house is two hours from the glamor of the French Riviera, the charm of the Provence countryside and the ancient villages and gastronomic routes of Luberon.
