The Poulailler is a little cottage, fully independent on the larger property of Maison Marula.
With two bedrooms it, is the perfect escape for a family of 4. On the ground floor you will find a living room, a dining room, a fully equipped kitchen, a shower room with a washing machine and a WC, all on charming and comfortable. Upstairs there are two bedrooms, one with 160cm queen bed and the other with two 120 cm large super singles, as well as another separate toilet. There is A/C throughout this home. It is a separated from the main house. by high hedge-rows and feels perfectly private.
There is a large saIt-water heated pool, 8m x 4m x 1.5m with a safety shutter. Note that small children require constant supervision around the garden as there are a stream and two ponds.
There is plenty of parking
Things to do: This is NOT a problem! Rent a bike and explore the countryside; take photos of those famous lavender fields and Van Gogh’s sunflowers. You will want to visit those famed Provence markets where you will buy Tapenades and olives, spices, cheeses, and fruits and vegetables galore. My favorite is Apt, just a few kilometers away, also famous for its local ceramics, and its preserved fruits (“les fruits confits”). It’s a 4 kilometer hike to St.Saturnin-les-Apt, an amazingly lovely town perched on top of a hill.
An hour or less away, you have Aix-en-Provence, with its beautiful streets and the famous Cours Mirabeau. And, you won’t want to miss Sunday at Isle -sur la-Sorgue for its famous antique dealers and brocantes as well as the Sunday market. Stroll along its river and then stop for a perfect Sunday lunch.
