|GARDENS AND GROUNDS:
The gardens and grounds provide a magical setting for the property and have been noted in two books: Holly Kerr Forsyth’s “Gardens of Eden - Among the world’s most beautiful gardens” and Louisa Jones’ “Du Jardin au Paysage - 30 creations contemporaines en Provençe”.
Capitalising upon the wonderful mature trees, the garden is laid out to achieve both intimacy and a gentle transition to the remainder of the estate.
|The formal gardens flow into the mown orchards and beyond to the terraced olive groves and finally to the unspoilt woodlands. To the east is the enclosed swimming pool garden with a wide lawned area shaded by the many specimen trees.
Beyond is the wide mown area of gently sloping meadow leading towards the magnificent ornamental lake and beyond to the vines, olive terraces and the woodland. A short distance to the north is the all-weather tennis court with an adjacent sitting area. A short distance above and to the west of the main house through the lavender garden is a boules pitch.
There are approximately 4.2 hectares of vines which are principally planted AOC vines (Rolle / Vermentina white). Currently managed by a neighbouring vineyard, the grapes are used to provide the estate’s own white wine bottled under its own label. An SCI accreditation document for these Wines and Olives may be viewed here.
There are over 1,000 Olive trees of which 100 are mature productive trees and the balance are 4 to 5 years old.
The remainder of the land comprises open fields and woodland principally the indigenous oak and pine trees.
