The house is very secluded and solely accessed by a private driveway. The nearest property is a privately owned holiday home, several hundred metres away, up behind, north east to the house. You cannot see the property at all from Valmousse. In short, very private. Great walks and cycling direct from the house.

There are some good restaurants nearby and of course a huge choice in Aix. On Friday morning there is a fantastic local market in Lambesc and Aix en Provence has a market pretty much every day.
There are local shops in Lambesc which provide a good range of food and shops are open on Sunday mornings. All within a 10 minute drive.

Closest supermarket 5-10 minute drive. 30-40 minute walk to nearest local shops. 5 mins drive to restaurants. Local tennis courts, 5 minute drive. Golf courses - within 15 minute drive.
