Style Notes

Historic farmhouse. This beautiful 18th century home is full of traditional Provencal features, with original windows, huge fireplace and stone walls. The hosts have updated and modernized the property over the last 10 years, creating a large modern kitchen, multiple eating areas and contemporary bathrooms, juxtaposed with antique furniture. We love the exposed ceiling in the kitchen, the colorful painted window shutters, and the stunning double height hallway creating a sense of space.
