Here is a villa which is perfectly placed in one of the most stunning corners of Provence. Set in the village of Bédoin at the foot of the Giant of Provence –Mont Ventoux. Les Oliviers has the whole shebang! As the English owners reside here in spring and autumn, the house is fully furnished with all the mod-cons; all you need is your bike if you wish the follow the Tour de France up the mountain!
Convenience, comfort and safety make Les Oliviers ideal for families. Take the kids for exploratory hikes around Mont Serein, exhilarating canyoning in the Nesque gorge and discovery bike rides around the perched Provençal villages.
Feel perfectly at ease at Les Oliviers with its homely comforts. Spend an extra hour in the soft beds, (you have the luxury of Air-con and a duvet) then choose a book from the wide range of English novels. Perhaps the kids would like to choose a board game to take out to the patio or select their favourite DVD for after dinner so you get that all important quiet-time.
The kitchen is filled with all the appliances you need for trying out some Provençal recipes of your own. Basket in hand, head to the local market to fill it with sun-ripened vegetables, olives, cheese and charcuterie.
The ship-shape, spick-and-span garden is safe for little feet and is fenced off from the pool and drive. The children will love the long pool which reaches 27° in the summer; and those with sensitive skin, or in need of a chilled beverage, can take refuge on the poolside roofed patio. In the evening, enjoy recollecting the day’s activities on the spacious veranda with views over the illuminated pool and beyond.
