Maison de Timole is a pretty, stone-clad village house set on the edge of Cabrieres D'Avignon, a medieval village dating beyond the 11th century. Its rear garden overlooks the countryside leading to the famous 'Mur de la Peste' and the front garden, once the area for villagers to bring their corn to be threshed, has views to the nearby Luberon Mountains visible above the old Provencal tiled roofs of the nearby village houses. Its rare to find such a peaceful village house, minutes from shops and restaurants. Within 10 minutes on foot you can return to the house with a bag full of croissants and a baguette tucked under your arm, ready for a leisurely breakfast on the terrace under the shady mulberry tree.
The house has been sympathetically renovated, retaining old features. The bathrooms and kitchen are state of the art, the living room with open plan dining area and fireplace is bright and spacious with french doors leading to the rear dining patio. The house is on one level with a couple of steps between the living area and the bedrooms. Lots of privacy as each of the three bedrooms are in different parts of the house and has its own bathroom. One bedroom has a mezzanine area above it, which is not suitable for small children, but this can be closed off with a child gate. The bedrooms are comfortable, spacious and bright, with beamed ceilings and each has french doors giving outside access. There are two queen-size double bedrooms and one double bedroom which can be made into a twin upon request. The double/twin bedroom has a bath and separate shower, the two doubles have showers only. Each bathroom has its own toilet.
The owner of this house is a keen cook so the kitchen is particularly well equipped. She even provides a folder of her favourite Provencal recipes for you to try, when you return laden with fresh produce from the local markets. There are two outside dining areas, one under the shade of the mulberry tree on the patio beside the kitchen, and the other in the cool pool house. To complete your outdoor dining experience there is a large 'Outback' gas BBQ. The living/dining room is a spacious open-plan area with two french doors leading to the rear patio, an open fire place, large flat screen TV, DVD player, CDs and books. There's a fabulous new swimming pool with UV filtration and electric safety cover and a spacious pool house with dining table, chairs, sink, overhead tropical style fan, toilet and poolside shower.
