Provence Villa 5630 was built by a well know Cote d`Azur architect in the style of a small chateau with provencal influences and a splendid tower. It is in an idyllic setting, built on high ground, backed by oak forests and open protected countryside with a profusion of wild flowers and enjoy simply stunning views of the sea. It is set in a beautiful mature garden, part of which is formal and leads down past a little pond and waterfall to the swimming pool terrace. The remainder with many species of exotic trees, shrubs and plants - some dating back several hundred years - is left untouched in order to protect the wild flowers and orchids. The interior of the hose has an imposing grand staircase, vaulted ceiling , 15th, 16th and 17th Century wooden doors and cabinets and hand-made tiles from Salernes. The decor throughout is light, cool, and elegant with subdued Provencal colors. It is most beautifully and appropriately furnished with a combination of antique and modern furniture and an eclectic selection of artifacts and objects d`art collection on the owners extensive travels. Everything is of top quality from the teak deck chairs to the terrace to the ornate masonry and kitchen equipment (the owners are both gourmet cooks) This is a wonderful property in a wonderful setting - and whilst the only sound you can hear is that of birdsong - you are close to the excitement of the Riviera.
