The charm and authenticity of the house strikes you as soon as you walk in. Catherine’s great-grandparents smile down from their photos on the walls, offering a glimpse of another time, of a beautiful place heady with the perfume of freshly-cut lavender.
To the left is the large, welcoming “summer kitchen”, once used for preparing family meals in the warmer months. With its enormous red brick fireplace, this is where you’ll enjoy a delicious breakfast each day.
Opposite the front door is a broad staircase with a wrought-iron balustrade and steps of traditional « tommettes », octagonal terracotta tiles. This staircase leads up to the bedrooms and the sitting room, which is decorated in warm Provencal colours.
Light floods the landing through the stained-glass window depicting the magnificent cedar you can see at the edge of the woodland.
