In a commanding position and surrounded by vineyards, hills, oak woods and footpaths, people who are seeking absolute calm and serenity will find a haven of peace here. This traditional, detached stone farmhouse is set apart from a tiny hamlet of just three houses. It has a tall pigeonnier on three floors and has been carefully and sensitively restored to provide a fully equipped, comfortable and stylish home full of natural light. The property features a huge, stone-vaulted living/dining room, a kitchen with granite worktops and stone floor and a private salt-water swimming pool. The gravelled, walled courtyard is flanked by a huge double barn, stone bakery and farm buildings. The three traditional covered and open terraces face south, east and west and give panoramic views over the countryside, and are provided with quality garden furniture suitable for al fresco dining. The spacious lawned gardens have wonderful views and are brimming with lavender, roses, olive and fruit trees which provide shade and privacy. It also has four acres of wildflower meadow. Tennis courts and bicycle hire 5 minutes’ drive. Excellent cycling and hiking on marked trails in the area.
