About the property

Villa in Rognes, Nr. Aix en Provence

This totally refurbished villa is located in a quiet but not isolated position approximately 1.5 km to Rognes, a picturesque village, and 19 km from Aix en Provence. In enclosed grounds of one and a half acres with a 10mx5m private pool, it is ideal particularly for families in the school holidays and those wanting a tranquil holidays out of high season. Situated only 10 minutes away from the Luberon National Park, approximately 1 hour from the Camargue, Arles, Nimes, Avignon and the coast, it is an ideal base to explore beautiful and diverse Provence. The villa is well equipped with TV, wifi, DVD and video player, high chair, travel cot and steriliser.

The villa is in very quiet area and unfortunately sound travels. We ask that clients respect the neighbours and keep the noise levels down ( e.g. in the pool and playing music) to a reasonable level, whilst still being able to enjoy themselves.

About The Owner

We live and work in London and look forward to spending time in Provence as it is the complete opposite of city life. Kim worked in Provence in her teens and was determined to buy a property there once she could afford it. We bought this villa with a view to spending more time there when we retire but until then we decided to share the villa so others can spend holidays in this beautiful environment.

The Owner purchased this villa in 2003

Why The Owner chose Rognes

We fell in love with this property primarily because of its setting. It is surrounded by trees but is only a short walk to the village. We liked the fact that Rognes is a typically French village and is not full of designer shops and art galleries. If you want that, you can travel the 15 minutes into the Luberon where those types of villages are located, and then come home again! The house is not pretty and was very dated when we bought it but we have refurbished it throughout, including the massive terrace complete with a sun shade that is wonderful to sit under whilst sipping wine and admiring the garden and swimming pool.
