In the country: Notre Dame du Val, Aix-en Provence, France
Close the gates on 25 acres of rolling olive plantations and lavender, cypress trees, mature oaks and fruit orchards and relax in your own personal haven of peace. Away from the tourists and hustle of the Cote d’Azur, the olive estate of Notre Dame exists in the peace, tranquility and richness that is Aix-en-Provence and the Luberon.
Notre Dame du Val is the rarest of experiences. Plenty of light and space, charming interior design rich in art and sculpture, you can be assured of great comfort and relaxation during your time in Provence. With extensive views over the rich French countryside to the mountains of the Massif de l’Etoile in the far south, Notre Dame du Val is a wonderful mix of tradition and modernity on the doorstep of Aix-en-Provence, possibly one of the most vibrant, entertaining and exquisite towns in France.
The property, which is surrounded by parkland trees, consists of a traditional Bastide (Aixoise Maison de Maitre), and a range of other buildings. These include a beautifully restored 19th century stone farm house, an Orangery (containing a fully equipped gym), a Pigeonier (pigeon house), a large Pool house and a Garage.
The main house has four double bedrooms and two twin rooms. There is a large sitting room with fireplace, plasma TV and DVD player, along with two upper hall study areas. Next to the kitchen is a gorgeous dining room with spectacular views to the South. In the gardens you will find, for your entertainment, an excellent new tennis court, with a dynamic world class artificial grass surface, a 17-metre pool, a trampoline fitted with safety enclosure and a professional ping-pong table, near the house for easy access!
The property is equally ideal for families and groups of friends as it is for business retreats.
