Pertuis, Provence, France
Aix-en-Provence is the heart of the Provencal Hinterland. Here you are far from the heat and noise of the Mediterranean coast and right among everything what makes the Provence so famous. Markets boasting of fruits, spices and aromas which will any gourmet's heart go tachycardic. Green valleys, rolling hills, flowers and top class cultural events this region has it all. The only thing you will miss are maybe wild horses.
This superb villa is the perfect base camp to explore this god-blessed region. Yet it demands a certain discipline from your side since this stunning example blends traditional with contemporary architecture enriched by designer furniture. Tempting enough to become a tad too lazy while enjoying the views of Mont Saint Victoire and the surrounding nature. No worries though - your children will thank you with taking endless plunges in the huge pool. So will your guests after having enjoyed the blessings of this Gaggenau kitchen and the surrounding vineyards. The ones still thirsty for culture will find a library stocked with both English and French books.
To sum it up: Booking this villa with up to nine adults (one bedroom is very basic) and four children you will have the opportunity to experience one of the top properties of this region. As we said in the beginning - here you are far from it all but thanks to WiFi, Flat Tvs and B&O music system you won't miss a thing. Vive La Provence!
