Vacation Rental Description
This 6 year old immaculately designed hillside home is set over 3 floors with lift, some 800 feet above sea level overlooking vineyards and the Island of Porquerolles off Hyeres in the South of France. To the west are stunning uninterrupted views of national parkland offering beautiful sunsets.
The 12 metre x 4 metre swimming salt water infinity pool has its own teak deck area with Gloster loungers and parasols for shade. There is nothing more relaxing than leaning at the edge of the pool and looking down on the views below.
The villa is over 350 square metres of living space - with one complete leisure floor in the middle floor stretching the length of the house with over 200 square metres of terraces. The property is set out over 3,250 square metres of hillside. The gardens have been featured in both French magazines and French TV 3 Cote Jardin.
The lower floor features 4 double bedrooms with ensuite facilities and the family entertainment room with 43" plasma TV featuring surround sound. Library of books, games and DVDs. All bedrooms have views of the sea and open out onto a covered arched portico terrace. All rooms have air cooling and underfloor cooling/heating and mosquito screens.
The top entrance floor has a study with broadband internet access and a master bedroom suite with double bed, walk-in wardrobes and marble clad bath/shower room and dual handbasins made out of one piece of marble. Provate terraces and sea views.

A seperate Snooker Room with an antique snooker table, wall mounted flat screen TV and sound system makes this a great adults games room.

This property is energy efficient and Eco Friendly in that we have used up to date insulation products and materials throughout the construction and have installed a Geo-Thermal heating system which derives its heat transfer energy from 3 bore holes sunk over 100 metres down into the hillside. This delivers air cooling (similar, but more economical than conventional air conditioning), underfloor heating & cooling and all the hot water used in the property.
