This blissful farmhouse retreat perfectly embodies the dream of Provence


French courtyard luxury farmhouse in Provence

Provence is a difficult concept to truly define - it is a dream, a delight for the senses and something to be treasured. A summer in Provence is a summer like no other.

Lush vines are laden with syrahbees are busily tending to endless rows of blooming lavender and blushing roses climb up the walls of ancient stone houses. 

Fresh produce from the markets of Provence

Plump summer fruits are irresistible at the morning marchés of medieval villages beneath lofty plane trees. Evenings are spent outdoors dipping in and out of the pool after indulging in sublime local produce, cheeses and wine late into the Mediterranean night.
