Villa Mesanges is a charming and well equipped villa in a private and quiet but not isolated location, just a few minutes’ drive from Apt. Villa Mesanges sleeps up to 10 Guests in 5 bedrooms, and is conveniently split into two separate areas making it ideal for two families holidaying together.
The house is decorated with taste and the terrace lends itself nicely for eating outside. There is a sense of space as the house has an entrance hall linking the two parts of the property which is ideal for families or group of friends wanting to holiday together but yet have their own independence. You will enjoy the large kitchen and dining area which allows cooking great meals for a big family, after which you can enjoy sitting in the comfortable living room or enjoy the magnificent mountain views from the outdoor terrace. The outdoor heated pool is superb and the views are truly remarkable. The spacious and secluded garden has lots of shaded areas and is ideal for children and family games. Within the large grounds you there are swings, a table tennis table and lots of space to play.
In the evenings you will enjoy sitting outside with a glass of wine whilst the food is sizzling away on the barbecue. A sheer delight!
A few minutes’ drive into Apt or Saignon for food shopping or cafes and lots of lovely little hill-top villages to discover nearby. For market lovers the Saturday morning market in Apt is a must. There are also a number of beautiful villages and vineyards just a short drive away from the villa.
