La Jaume - Garden

Garden & Pool

The large garden extends over lawn and vineyard to the heated pool and poolhouse set 60 metres from the house (the pool has a rigid cover for security). Beyond the pool is a wooded hill and this is a garden that provides a good play area for children as well as interest for adults.

 

The pool is big enough to swim lengths - 17 x 5m (56 x 16 ft) - and is heated. There is a vast wooden deck all around, edged by carefully planted stone beds, and it is deliberately placed at a high part of the land 60 metres from the house for the view as far as Mont Ventoux. The pool has an electronic rigid cover for safety.

 

The pool house has a summer kitchen with cooker, microwave, fridge and dishwasher and an outside table and chairs for meals. There are showers inside and out, and a WC.

 

Above the pool area is the boules court, terraced into the hillside (above left).

 

To the front of the house the living room and kitchen open onto a shaded patio with dining table and chairs, and barbecue.

 

 Under a plane tree are garden sofa and armchairs (above right) and on the lawn are sunloungers.

Beyond the lawn the garden gives way to a small vineyard, and after that comes the pool.

The house has secure off-street parking for several cars.
