Sleeping up to six, the house, originally part of the grounds of a Chateau since replaced by La Chapelle de Notre Dame, is tucked away in the oldest part of Aups. Throughout, original features have been restored and enhanced and the style is unmistakably Provence.
The ground floor offers spacious and light filled rooms with more than enough space to spread out and find space, with large glass doors connecting the inside and outside spaces – perfect for summer in Provence.
A well equipped kitchen – with beautiful tiles - and fantastic utility spaces make preparing meals a joy.
Upstairs there is a beautiful living and dining space, with a large comfy sofa, perfect for relaxed evenings.
Moving up to two double bedrooms on the second floor, along with extra single beds and two modern, well equipped bathrooms (one en-suite).
The ancient stone walls keep the house comfortable, aided by fans in the summer and wood burning stoves for cooler months.
Leading from the ground floor, the acacia-shaded dining terrace winds down to further terraces and an attractive decked plunge pool (unheated).
There is a table-tennis table at the very bottom of the garden, under the twelfth-century Saracen tower. You’d never know you were in the centre of town as you’re cocooned within ancient and beautiful stone walls.
The house is in the oldest and highest, part of Aups close to the church, Notre Dame de la Deliverance (formerly the Chateau), and tucked away on a narrow pedestrian-only street
