A stylish home, pool, and garden with three terraces, ideally located on a small hill looking out over the river Lez 100m away (an area protected for its exceptional biodiversity). The house appeals to a wide variety of tastes, combining rustic and refined touches; eco-friendly furnishing and re-purposed materials to create enchanting interiors with striking alcoves and archways. A beautiful southern-styled haven to relax with friends and family, comprised of 4 bedrooms accommodating 8 guests.

EXTERIOR
A stone staircase under a tunnel of shrubbery leads from the first upstairs terrace (with outdoor dining for 6 surrounded by olive and medlar trees) down to the swimming pool. The pool is surrounded with parasols and sun loungers to take full advantage of the summer sunshine. The garden has seating (made from a split iron bed) with outdoor lighting and a barbecue, to make those sultry evenings a convivial affair. Keep a lookout for the three tortoises who roam freely around the garden, as well as our cat (whom you will be entrusted with feeding)! A second terrace with a small sofa and coffee table overlooks the pool, nearly overhanging. 

INTERIOR
The terrace gives directly onto the kitchen and dining room, which make full use of natural materials, from the bamboo shelves and wooden tables to the openwork straw, interlaced palm leaves, and alfa-fibre from Morocco. The very spacious Casablanca-inspired living room is airconditioned, and includes another dining area, as well as a large sofa and armchairs around an iron stove, the whole with a view of southern firs and pines as far as the eye can see. The two bedrooms on the ground floor are alcove-like, with thick white walls and exposed rock to keep cool. Their bathroom has a standalone bath and natural-rock sink.
Up the stairs and onto the first floor, you will find a comfy seating area with plush cushions under a skylight, as well as the Villa Dolce Vita’s third terrace with reclining seating. The first floor is also home to two more tastefully decorated double bedrooms (one of which is air conditioned) with their bathroom, as well as a supplementary single bed in an office area with desk and piano.

SURROUNDINGS
The house is located in a very calm area not accessible by car (but 100 metres away from the riverside parking) of Castlenau-le-Lez, famously featured in Frédéric Bazille’s Réunion de famille, which is part of the permanent collection at the Musée d’Orsay. The local boulangerie, butchers, greengrocers, cheesemonger and wine merchant are all within a 5-minute walk, and the village’s renowned outdoor market attracts visitors from afar on Tuesdays and Saturdays.
