The Willow Tree
Gites in Provence – The Willow Tree Apartment
The Willow Tree is a beautiful self contained apartment that lies in the grounds of a large Provençal villa known as The Apple Orchard. It is connected to the main house but completely separate with it’s own entrance and outdoor terrace.
The apartment is reached via a courtyard garden. The cosy main living area incorporates a dining area, kitchen and lounge with large doors leading to an outdoor eating terrace with views over the extensive gardens. This open plan layout allows light and a sense of space to fill the room. The kitchen is fully equipped with all mod cons, the dinging area houses a wood burning stove and the lounge provides a flat screen TV with Sky.
There are two double bedrooms on opposite sides of the apartment, both with en suite bathrooms with walk in power showers, wash basin’s and w.c.’s.
There is shared use of the heated pool and garden during the mid and high season months of June through to September (inclusive).
The apartment provides secure parking for several vehicles, and safe storage for bicycles.
The house lies in the countryside close to the local village of Le Thor. The terrain is crossed by the meandering River Sorgues that runs throughout its fields and orchards. It lies on a quiet road and is within easy cycling and walking distance of Le Thor.
The owners, Audrey and Peter, live on site with their two children, Troy (13) and Ryan (11) and their wonderful Labrador Jody (2). They both work for cycling companies and will be happy to rent out bicycles to fit your size and requirements. Please ask for more details.
The Garden & Heated Pool
A variety of mature trees, including cherries, olive and fig, combine to create a beautiful enclosed garden with large lawn. There is a spacious, tiled, fenced-in pool area, a 10.5m X 6.5m pool, with another BBQ by the pool and plenty of sun loungers. There is another large table on the downstairs terrace which seats 10 people.
The house is South-West facing for sunshine all day long and is surrounded by orchards and fields ensuring safety and quiet. Floodlights in the pool, under the shelter and trees around the pool create the perfect evening ambiance. The villa provides ample secure parking. The Willow Tree has its own separate entrance, garden and driveway with gates. It does not overlook the main house or garden, ensuring privacy.
Personally managed by its owners, Audrey and Peter Jakobsen, The Willow Tree is your home away from home in Provence.
Family friendly and specifically designed to welcome cycling groups, we invite people to experience this beautiful property in an amazing part of the world.
