The private gravel drive on the approach to this exceptional villa is lined with slender cypress sentinels and fragrant lavender bushes, the magnificent gardens on either side bursting with luxuriant shrubs and conifers; it’s the perfect introduction to La Chrysoline’s abundant charms.
The house itself is the epitome of Provencal architecture, its ochre and stone walls
swathed in wisteria with iconic blue painted shutters at the windows. At the front is an enchanting courtyard with various seating areas where pockets of shade are provided by giant oaks, olive trees and a vine-covered pergola. Huge potted palms and flowering shrubs complete the gorgeous picture, a magical spot in which to chat over a cool drink, play cards or indulge in some relaxing holiday reading.
The villa’s interior has been styled with exceptional flair – an impressive mix of quality contemporary fittings with classic furnishings, often with a modern twist. The ground floor rooms are impeccably laid with cool stone floor tiles and decorated in elegant, muted shades. The living area has been thoughtfully furnished with plush seating and cosy table lamps while the eclectic assortment of distinctive paintings, sculptures and ornaments adds extra character to this delightfully relaxing space. Large French doors open out onto the patio outside, with views over the well-tended gardens.
In contrast, the stunning kitchen is the epitome of contemporary design, sleek and minimalist with a magnificent island unit that doubles as a breakfast bar. The appliances are state-of-the-art and include an American style fridge freezer and a wine cooler to keep those crisp rosés and aromatic vins blancs nicely chilled.
A smart dining suite in the living area is just one option for mealtimes, however by far the most popular will be the covered dining area outside, surrounded by sweet smelling herbs and flowers and perfect for making the most of the wonderful climate here.
All six of the house’s serene, individually styled bedrooms have an en suite bath or shower room, immaculately appointed to the highest specifications. Romantically decorated in such soothing shades of lavender, lemon and duck egg blue and with delightful attention to detail, the bedrooms are spread over the two upstairs floors, enjoying lovely views over the garden and the surrounding farmland.
When you’re ready for a refreshing dip, the fabulous private pool is on hand, heated free of charge should you wish, and located within a pretty walled area to the side of the house. Sun loungers and parasols are provided, along with a brick-built gazebo for some welcome shade in the heat of the day. There’s also a gas barbecue so you can prepare many of your meals alfresco while the outdoor table tennis table will keep the more competitive guests happy while the food sizzles away.
The surrounding countryside is ideal for walkers, with beautiful scenery to explore. Nearby is the tiny village of Le Thor while the picturesque town of Isle sur la Sorgue, known as an ‘island city’ due to branches of the River Sorgue passing on different sides, is just 10 kms away. Its medieval streets are criss-crossed with canals and the 17th and 18th century architecture is a delight. Antiques lovers will be thrilled to discover over 300 dealer shops in and around the town while the twice weekly local produce markets are a feast for the eyes as well as the taste buds.
If you’re travelling with a large family, a group of friends or looking for a special villa to mark a special occasion, La Chrysoline should certainly be on your shortlist, offering exceptional accommodation in the most beautiful setting.
