A stunning Provencal farmhouse of approximately 240 m2 renovated to the highest standards whilst retaining many of its original features offering a lounge area with exposed beams and character fireplace, a dining room, separate kitchen, office, 6 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. The rooms are light and airy with vaulted ceilings, stone walls and exposed wooden beams. The property is set within vines on the edge of a lovely provencal village with a well-landscaped garden, salt-water pool and various terraces.
This beautiful stone farmhouse was originally built in 1780, and is known locally as an old silk-making property. It has been recently renovated to the highest standards whilst retaining many of its original features.
Entering the property through electronic gates you will find a parking area and an old stone threshing floor in front of a covered south-facing terrace leading to the front door.
The property was known for its silk-making operation as well as the fact that the local villagers came to "borrow" the threshing floor as was common with the local gentry.
The property of approximately 240 m2 offers a large kitchen of 35 m2 which is fully fitted and equipped with a wood-burning range stove and a feature french door leading onto the covered terrace which runs the length of the back of the house and has a summer kitchen.
The lounge area is light and spacious with exposed beams and a fireplace with insert. There is a link to the former grange which retains the animal feeding bench, now accommodating the dining room, an office, a guest WC and the laundry area. This room has another door out onto the back terrace and French doors out to the front of the house.
Upstairs is the impressive master suite of approximately 35 m2 which comprises a stunning vaulted bedroom, a bathroom with walk-in shower, a dressing area and a 2nd bedroom. There are 2 other bedrooms on the 1st floor along with a bathroom which is en-suite to one of the bedrooms.
On the second floor is another vaulted spacious bedroom with exposed beams, a further bedroom and a large bathroom.
The farmhouse is surrounded by vineyards on 3 sides, with magnificent views of the Massif des Maures mountains. The beautiful gardens invite you to lounge by the salt-water pool, relax in the pool house, play boules in the boules court or enjoy the view from the back covered terrace. The pool is fitted with an alarm system and secure pool cover. The garden is fully fenced and a garage is attached to the house.
A rare period pigeonnier (pigeon house) and wheat threshing floor add to the character of the gardens. Old mulberry trees remind us of the silkworm production era and the old olive trees provide more than enough fruit to produce quality olive oil at the local mill.
In summary a beautiful farmhouse, exquisitely renovated and full of charm offering stone walls, high ceilings, exposed beams and light and spacious rooms. All set in landscaped gardens with a salt-water pool. Your own piece of french history in Provence!

The prosperous Var department is located in the most extreme south-easterly point in France and has an unsurpassable climate, except in early spring when the heavy showers arrive.
Toulon is the departmental capital of the Var with a population of over 160,000. It has the biggest harbour in mainland Europe, and France's Mediterranean navy fleet use the city as its base. Toulon is a historic centre in many ways, and its attractive old streets are host to many ancient buildings and hidden historic corners. The town also has a lively cultural scene, the highlight of which is the fantastic local opera company. The hills that look over the town and onto the sea have a number of great houses, villas and apartments.
The city of Toulon was damaged severely during the Second World War giving the centre a very different atmosphere to its neighbours on the coastline.
To the east of the Var you'll find the town of Hyeres, which is a great blend of both Provence and Cote d'Azur culture. There are few other places that offer exotic palm trees on a sun-soaked coast together with a medieval old town and other historical interests - imagine spending your holidays here!
The very famous St-Tropez is a stunning town architecturally and is celebrated for its glamorous lifestyle. It has a population of just 6000 in the low season, but as the temperature increases for the summer months the population explodes!
Further up the coastline and you'll come across the tourist resorts of Frejus and St-Raphael with their stretching sandy beaches and Roman remains. Not to be missed is Port-Grimaud. Built along a network of canals, the city bears a striking resemblance to the Italian city of Venice. The city is very attractive, although the top prize goes to Bargeme, which is widely acknowledged as one of the prettiest villages in the whole of France.
Ryanair and Citijet fly direct to Toulon from London in the summer season. If you'd rather avoid flying, however, you could take a Rail Europe service from London St Pancras all the way to Toulon or you could transfer from the Eurostar to the Autotrain at Paris.
