This property is everything you would expect in a renovated Provencal farmhouse and in fact it is known locally as an old silk-making property. Surrounded by vines and with a rare pigeonnier in the garden showing off the wealth of the original owner, this 3 storey property provides large and luminous rooms. There are 6 bedrooms including a superb master suite of 35 m2 with exposed stone walls, beams and a vaulted ceiling, a lounge with beams & a fireplace, a dining room, office, separate kitchen and 3 bathrooms. The garden is well-landscaped with a good-sized pool, several covered terraces and a quality BBQ.
Set within the vines on the edge of this village but fully fenced sits this Lord of the Manor house which dates from around 1780. The house has 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.
Once inside you will understand that this property is much more than the 180 m2 of declared space. There is a large kitchen of 35 m2 which is fully fitted and equipped with a wood-burning range stove and a feature French door leading to the covered terrace which runs the length of the back of the house and has the summer kitchen. Also on the ground floor is the lounge again of around 35 m2 with exposed beams and fireplace with insert. There is also 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 within an area of around 35 m2. 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 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 bedroom with exposed beams, a further bedroom and a large bathroom.
The house is part air-conditioned with pipework for further installation if required.
The garden of 3/4 acres is landscaped with a swimming pool and another covered terrace alongside. A garage is provided as well as an old pigeon coop which is used for storage and is incredibly rare in this area of Provence.
Sensitive renovation with authentic, quality materials enhancing this charming building - your own piece of French history.

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.
