Ferme du Val is located between two picturesque villages, St Cannat and Lambesc. The building dates from the 18th century, a traditional stone "mas" which was originally the main farm serving the nearby chateau. The house is situated in peaceful, open countryside, within 25 acres of grounds. Both the house and the heated pool are enclosed within a walled garden creating a secluded and very private and peaceful environment. The grey/green shuttered house is flanked by large "platane" trees creating shady areas. All bedrooms have wonderful views out to the beautiful open countryside. It is a perfect location for a holiday.
The lawned gardens are on two levels, the lower with a large south facing terrace between the house and the pool. There are 2 options for outside dining: either by the edge of the pool underneath the shade of an arbour covered with vines – the grapes are edible! or there is a terrace situated behind the house, bordered with flowers and herbs, with a large gas bbq. The pool is 12m x 5m, heated, ozone treated, not chlorine, pool house with WC, shower and changing room, lots of sunbeds and parasols.
