L'Oliveraie sits in a private valley, 3 hectares in size. This large stone house is set back within the valley and is overlooked by nothing but evergreen hooded slopes. The privacy created by this setting is complete, and rivals the tranquility achieved by the most efficient magnates of Provence. L'Oliveraie is not just a romantic summer vacation rental but a genuine slice of the Provençal landscape over which you have sole reign. Your privacy is assured. This natural phenomenon provides a micro-climate which has permitted the owner to plant exotic trees such as eucalyptus, peach, palm, orange & lemon.
The sitting area, with its flat screen TV and built-in fire place shares the open plan communal living areas on the ground floor. There's also a dining area which is rarely used given that dining tends to be al fresco in the summer months.
The kitchen has been finished in stone and terra cotta giving it a truly Provencal feel. L'Oliveraie is so called because organic olive oil is produced from the olive trees dotted all over the grounds. The oil is gorgeous and on sale at the property. The owner also leaves a selection of wine which you can buy as needed.
