In traditional French style, its exterior boasts fresh white paint, pale blue window shutters and a terracotta roof. The white house sits amongst a blend of vibrant yet natural colours; the surrounding green leafy trees and shrubbery, and the deep blue sky and the gleaming turquoise swimming pool complement it gorgeously.

Nearer the house, there’s an alfresco terrace where you’ll eat the majority of your meals. It’s ideally shaded by a roof cover, and has a BBQ – perfect for boozy lunches or long, sunny evenings. There’s enough space for a big group, but it’s also cosy enough to be perfect for a romantic night in.

There’s three reception rooms, a dining room (if you fancy eating inside for a change), two kitchens, a home office (for those budding novelists or workaholics) and five comfortable bedrooms.
