Gracious Villa in Provence with Pool and Grounds - Le Mas de Castel
With flowering fields, vineyards and hilltop villages nearby, this tastefully renovated farmhouse rental in Provence is a great choice for friends and family. There are seventeen acres of umbrella pine, cypress, olive trees and vineyards to explore and a private swimming pool. Sightseeing and outdoor activities abound from this Provencal holiday rental, from the nearby village of Lourmarin to Gordes, to Aix-en-Provence, Avignon and Marseille.
An elegant iron gate opens to a private country road lined with trees and hedges. At the end of this road, the farmhouse peeks out from the greenery. There are three wonderful outdoor terraces for al fresco dining. Two of these terraces are shaded from strong sunlight and have a view of the landscaped park. There is a lovely diamond shaped pool (6m x 2m) with a diving board, pool seating and umbrellas. This vacation home has plenty of parking.
