Saumane - Provence - taste of real France

Last minute deals - Provencal Holiday Home Rental.

'Saumane' - 25% off remaining July and August weeks

A perfectly located Proven├žal house which sleeps up to 12 with spectacular views, and a private heated pool, set within 2.5 acres of land with an orchard of olive trees.

The house is set in a breath-taking location with a fantastic infinity heated swimming pool built into the rock face and has an overflow which cascades into a lower pool area. The area around the pool is beautifully landscaped with stone patio areas along with wooden decking. 

Floodlit at night, swimming under the stars is one of the true highlights of the summer holiday!

The garden and olive groves are set on stone built terraces, and the property 'domaine' is so large it even has it's own mini-forest of green oak trees.

Just a few minutes walk takes you to a small hill-top village which one can see from the house terrace and has only 200 inhabitants. It has a small friendly bar/restaurant. 'Isle-sur-Sorgue', famous for its antique shops and with a huge choice of restaurants, many on the waterfront, is only about 10 minutes away and Fontaine de Vaucluse is only 5 minutes away

The property is decorated and furnished to a very high standard and has a total of six bedrooms, five of which are ensuite.
