Villa Vaugines - Garden

Outside

Along the front of the house is the gravelled terrace and below that is the lawned pool level. The view is out over open countryside to the Montagne Sainte-Victoire near Aix-en-Provence.

 

The pool measures 10m x 5m (33 x 16ft) and has steps all along one end. It has a saltwater filtration system, so does not use chlorine, and is open from June to September (except by prior arrangement). For security there is an automatic sliding, rigid cover, as well as a lockable gate from the terrace. Around the pool are 6 sunloungers.

 

The pool house terrace with sails for shade.

The south-facing, gravelled terrace along the front of the house provides seating areas on comfortable garden furniture, and dining table under the shade of a pergola. Next to the dining table is a Weber gas barbecue.

 

Although in the village of Vaugines, the terrace and pool area are not overlooked, and there is nothing in the way of the far-reaching country views.
