LE THORONET: Two adjacent stone built period Provencal Farmhouses completely renovated to an exceptional standard.
Situated in an extraordinarily beautiful river setting on six acres of parkland, this is a nature lover’s paradise. The two houses can be lived in as one family home or separately. Wonderful gardens surround the house and pool area. These lead onto open parkland and down to the river, which is bordered by woodland of towering silver birch and aspen. Heron, kingfisher, terrapins, cormorant and wild duck are all commonly seen here.
The ruins of an ancient flour mill with waterfall and mill pool complement the river. Perfect for both swimming in the summer and fishing. It is possible to catch a variety of fish including carp, pike, perch, bream and trout from 300yds of riverbank. The park offers an environment with endless possibilities for recreation. There is plenty of space for a tennis court. It is unusual in this area to have so much usable flat land rather than precipitous terracing.
There are many seating areas and dining tables for lunches by the riverside. Canoeing is also another favourite sport for everyone to enjoy
