… modern villa just a short stroll to Lourmarin …
This spacious and versatile property is near central Lourmarin while having all the benefits of a country villa.
Villa Bijou is a comfortable, modern home that has everything you need for a family holiday. It's in a quiet location just minutes from the social life, shops and restaurants of Lourmarin, one of France's most beautiful villages.
The main house has two double bedrooms, one with an en-suite shower and toilet, and the other with a family bathroom (with bath and overhead shower) that has a glass door leading out onto the side garden with a lovely fig tree. The second bedroom has a door that leads out onto a small patio, where there's a foosball table. Both bedrooms have plenty of cupboard space.
Additionally, there are two completely self-contained cottages on the property, each with double bed, kitchenette and en-suite shower room with toilet. The first one overlooks the pool area, and has a large living area with picture windows, a table and built-in bookshelves, so it could function as a private dining room or a place to quietly catch up on some work emails away from the family – it's also a great space for a budding author to sit and write. A sofabed provides the option of having a single overnight guest.
The second cottage has large windows on two sides, overlooking the courtyard and main house. It has its own little free-standing, wood-burning (pellets or chips) fireplace. The utility room is tucked away in the back here, next to the kitchenette and en suite shower room with basin and toilet.
The house and cottages form a natural courtyard in the centre. It houses a sociable outdoor dining area under a shady cover of trellised grapevine that has a fun mirrored back wall and barbeque facilities. The garden wraps around the main house, and there's a large, inviting swimming pool with plenty of seating on pool chairs and a well-tended lawn. Mature trees provide plenty of shade alongside the pool, and the option to dine under them.
Large open-plan living areas in the main house are furnished with modern and art deco style furniture. The lounge has an open fireplace and there is plenty of light from the large windows and a skylight. A sliding door leads out onto the rear of the house.
The spacious dining room can seat eight people comfortably, and it has interesting architectural features such as a recessed ceiling with skylights, a mirrored wall and views through to the lounge.
You can enter the kitchen from the dining room or via a door that leads out onto the garden - great for catering outdoor dinner parties on warm summer evenings. It is modern and fully equipped with all the appliances you need, and it has a small table and chairs in the centre of the room.
The property is walled for privacy, and there is space for two cars to park outside the front entrance, just off the road.
