The house has been beautifully designed to blend a contemporary look with beautiful antique pieces. The rooms are large and airy and the main reception area has a double-height ceiling.
Despite the feeling of space there are myriad cosy corners to sit and relax in, plus underfloor heating and open fires make this a wonderful place to stay during the autumn and winter months.
The garden wing has a less formal sitting and games room (the salle des jeux), a luxurious, casual snug and a play area to get away from the crowd.
In the main house, there are four bedrooms on the first floor with beamed ceilings and en-suite marble bathrooms. Two have baths and all have walk-in showers. The bedrooms are situated around a dramatic atrium from which the staircase sweeps to the main floor living space.
The other two bedrooms are located in the garden wing, which leads directly off the first floor, and are situated on either side of the large sitting room. Both overlook the swimming pool and garden, with lovely views over to the mountains on the horizon. Both have walk-in showers.
The courtyard leads onto the pool and tennis court and has a summer kitchen, open fireplace and barbecue for long balmy summer evenings.
This is just a selection of some of the villas we represent.

Properties are available throughout the year by arrangement.
