Stunning Villa Rentals In Provence Video
Large Family Villa in Provence
The Apple Orchard is a unique Provencal villa, set independently within its own mature lawned garden with large swimming pool, just outside the small local village of Le Thor, amongst peaceful countryside in the valley of the River Sorgues, only twenty minutes from the city of Avignon.
Much consideration has been taken to make The Apple Orchard something special, utilising its extraordinary design of high beamed ceilings, outside terraces and sheer sense of size to maximum effect. With 5 double bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, the accommodation caters perfectly for large parties, families and friends sharing.
Particular emphasis is placed on accommodating familes with small children or families sharing.
Approached via a downstairs hallway, a sweeping staircase leads you up to an impressive open-plan living space incorporating lounge, kitchen and dining area. With its high beamed ceilings, limestone floors, huge traditional central fireplace and double french doors, the room extends out onto a balcony terrace overlooking the extensive, mature gardens and pool area. This terrace has a large table that seats ten and its own BBQ. Sofas are set amongst coffee tables, chests and bookshelves with a library of useful guidebooks and information. A large cabinet houses the TV with Sky Digital and DVD player. There is also a WiFi setup for the use of your own personal laptop. The kitchen is light and spacious, with a door leading directly to the outdoor eating terrace. Modern appliances, including hob, oven and microwave, granite work surfaces and an additional bar with stools completes this kitchen with a stylish finish. There is also an indoor dining table and chairs, seating 12 and a utility room with washing machine.
A spacious, light bedroom with wooden floors and fitted wardrobes, leads directly into a large en-suite bathroom with W.C. walk-in power shower, and ornate Victorian bath. There is a separate W.C. and two further bedrooms upstairs (one twin and one double) both with wooden floors and large windows looking out on to the garden. Both bedrooms have doors leading to the same en-suite bathroom between them, with two sinks and large power shower. Leading off from the main hallway are the ground floor bedrooms, both with beautiful French doors leading directly out on to the garden terrace. These are wonderfully light and tastefully furnished with double beds, mirrors, bedside tables with lamps, wardrobes and share a modern bathroom directly next door with beautiful large walk in limestone tiled power shower, W.C. and wash basin.
A variety of mature trees, including cherries, olive and fig, combine to create a beautiful enclosed garden with large lawn. There is a spacious, tiled, fenced-in pool area, a 10.5m X 5.5m pool, with another BBQ by the pool and plenty of sun loungers. There is an enormous amount of space around the pool area and garden which must be emphasized as it is perfect for families with lots of children. There is another large table on the downstairs terrace which seats 10 people. The house is South-West facing for sunshine all day long and is surrounded by orchards and fields ensuring safety and quiet. Floodlights in the pool, under the shelter and trees around the pool create the perfect evening ambiance. The villa provides ample secure parking with shelter from the sun for cars.
