In the centre of the Provence, between Arles and St. Rémy, next to Maussane les Alpilles and Les Beaux, you will find this charming detached cottage with garage and swimming pool. Situated on a plot of nearly 1.600 M2, in the middle of olive trees, woods and meadows and adjoining to the grounds of the monumental Castle Escanin, privacy is guaranteed. The property of 170 M2, has 4 bedrooms and has been completely renovated/restored in the year 2005, using high quality materials en maintaining the original period characteristics such as the mosaic floor throughout the property.
A fence with an electric operated entrance is surrounding the plot. Naturally the garden has been completed with a swimming pool with rest area.
The lay out of the house is as follows:
Through the porch one enters the house into the reception corridor with cloakroom. The cozy lounge has an open fire and shutters on the outside. Next to the lounge is an office with internet connection, that can also be used as a bedroom. One enters the master bedroom with open fire place through the dressing room that is also adjoined to the luxury bathroom with bath, separate shower, toilet and double washbasin. The kitchen is entered via the library and is equipped to perfection for the traditional Michelin Star Chef with a large luxury electric Lacanche stove. Next to kitchen is the traditional Summer Kitchen which leads to the multifunctional storage room and garden. Via the garden one can enter the guesthouse with a bathroom equipped with a shower, toilet and double washbasin. On the first floor of the guesthouse are two more bedrooms.
This absolutely charming property has been built for a very old friend of Vincent van Gogh in 1933. The old lady Mrs Jeanne Calment was the oldest lady ever in France (123yrs)! We can conclude that it must be a very healthy environment. The village Le Paradou is very close to St. Rémy, a village loved by the French celebrities such as Charles Aznavour, Jean Paul Belmondo and Brigitte Bardot. In the close surroundings are many hotels and restaurants varying from very reasonable to very luxury as well as shops. The villa is quietly situated and easily accessible.
