Set in large grounds, the house is surrounded on three sides by wide, stone terraces, a landscaped garden behind and a pretty swimming pool to one side. Nearby are lavender fields and fruit orchards and there are lovely views on villages, valleys, hills and forest. All the shops, restaurants, cafés and delights of Apt, including a bustling weekly open-air market, are just minutes away.
The old farmhouse has been beautifully renovated and features over 4,000 square feet of living space. Traditional accents include heavy-wood beamed ceilings and clay tile floors throughout the home. Furnishings feature antique and contemporary pieces, armoires, chests, oriental carpets, works of art and a variety of colorful fabrics.
