Provence, France II Back to Map

Bordered by a stone wall gate, Villa Marianne is surrounded by a sprawling garden strewn with fruit orchards, cypress trees and weeping willows.

Light and airy, the Provencal farmhouse has a blush facade, light blue shutters and a wisteria-covered pergola for al fresco dining. To the left is a stylish swimming pool attached to its own pool house. The grounds are pristine, perfect for a game of boules under the shade of the trees.

The decor is tasteful and subtle, with bronze, sepia and copper shades dominating. Walking into the sitting room, a stone fireplace comes into view, with burgundy and fawn striped armchairs and cream sofas. A separate dining room comes fitted with a rustic table and a brass chandelier that looms over it. All four bedrooms are decorated in similar earth tones.

Outside the villa is the little village of Molleges, which sits in the middle of the beautiful Provence in the Alpilles between Cavaillon and St Remy de Provence. Drive around the surrounding countryside and enjoy the sumptuous views: Provencal country houses, poppies and wild flowers growing on the verges, cypress and plane trees standing tall, with the Alpilles hill as a backdrop.

After taking in the scenery, head to Moulin du Calanquet, a working olive mill for an olive tasting and a browse around the well-stocked shop. Then drive to Avignon, where you can sample some of the region's best wines or pop into Les Halles to stockpile on olive oil, saucissons and chevre.
