“Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under the trees on a summer’s day, listening to the murmur on the water, or watching clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time” John Lubbock

We fell in love with the outdoor setting of this bastide that provides for an Al Fresco experience, almost all year round. The 12m x 6m pool sits at centre of the courtyard and the decking area, facing South East allows for all day sun worship. An outdoor living room provides a shaded daytime area for reading or relaxing, and with its open fire place the perfect evening setting for aperos and canapés.

A bespoke BBQ area is adjacent to the extensive outdoor kitchen and shaded dining area where the table can comfortably seat up to fourteen people. The landscaping is that of lemon trees, potted hydrangeas, roses, bougainvillea , jasmine, olive trees and more – ensuring an all year round palette of colour and aromas. On the West side of the courtyard is the air conditioned Pool House, with ground floor access to comfortable seating, loo and shower.

As the sun sets, the courtyard transforms into a magical setting for dining, listening to music, late night conversation and dancing. Festoon lighting, garden uplights and candles create an alluring evening mood and ambience.
