The house is in the peaceful and picturesque village of Mérindol. There are three double bedrooms, each with bath or shower room, and three toilets. Built in the 18th century, the house has been restored, and is comfortable and well equipped. It faces south, with good exposure to the sun and a fine view from the terrace. The courtyard is walled, providing privacy for the swimming pool and covered patio. The rear entrance is only fifty yards from the centre of the village. The house is on three floors so may not be suitable for people who have difficulty with stairs.
