Built into the hillside midway between sea and mountain, this wonderful stone Mas enjoys outstanding views from its secluded grounds and has been lovingly restored in keeping with its typical Provençal exterior.
A noticeable marriage of contemporary furnishings and traditional décor extends throughout the interior, accentuated by plentiful natural light through the south-facing French windows. In the living area, a wrought iron dining set is flanked by an elegant grandfather clock and solid wooden furniture, echoing the dark wood of the beams in the high ceiling. Through the open archway in the dividing wall, a leather corner sofa provides comfortable seating in an arc around a large, decorative feature fireplace. A painted porcelain hand basin dating back to 1854 is one of many other eye-catching features adding authenticity and character to the property.
Whilst helping to maintain a cool temperature inside, there is also an inherent warmth of colour in the exposed stonework and terracotta floor tiling throughout, perfectly complemented by traditional touches such as earthenware pots and copper pans. Cosy bedrooms and local handcrafted tiles from Salernes in the bathrooms and kitchen further enhance the theme.
Terraced grounds mean that young children would need supervision.
