- French riviera
Full property description
Balinaise is a contemporary villa with 5380 square feet of living space set in nearly 2.5 acres of enclosed land close to Aix En Provence, in the elegant area of St Marc Jaumegarde.
This truly is an exceptional villa, as much in its design as in the quality and originality of the materials used and in its unique relationship with its surroundings. The decoration is restrained but elegant with a Balinese influence, creating a zen-like atmosphere.
In the middle of the main house ground level is a cathedral like sitting and dining room with volcanic stone walls and a retractable picture window opening onto a large terrace overlooking the ornamental pools. Above, a raised passage way leads to the first level.
Next to the dining area is a fully equipped, air conditioned kitchen which opens over an indoor swimming pool enclosed by windows and sheltered by the framework of a Balinese house and its colonnades.
In front of the house is a huge outdoor swimming pool which flows into a water feature with a path of duckboards between water lilies and fish. A path of water runs along the west side of the house which is lit up at night.
A stay at this property is a wonderful experience adding to the already majestic surroundings of Provence – a holiday you will certainly never forget!
Saint-Marc-Jaumegarde is a French commune located in the department of Bouches-du-Rhône , in the Provence-Alpes -Côte d'Azur.
