Surrounded with grasslands and rice fields, this property is located in Camargue, in a protected area classified as one of the major preservation sites in France.
Just 15 kms from Arles and 20kms from Nîmes, close to 3 airports and the highspeed TGV train, this house was built in the XIXth century, as a pumping station for Aigues-Mortes (Fortified Town dating back to the Middle Ages, known due to its salt marsh and also as the port from which France’s King “Saint Louis” left for crusades). Now entirely renovated as a residential property, it offers all the modern amenities.
The building is unique in Camargue, and remains a hallmark example of an old 19th century farm. It has been saved from destruction by the current owners, who love preservation projects.
With 5500 square feet of living space, you’ll benefit from 2 living rooms, a dining room, 3 kitchens, 9 bedrooms and 3 shower rooms in addition to 4 bathrooms, outbuildings and an independent roman style spa and a private helipad.
Outside is a 4 acre garden “à la Française” , with large ponds where you can enjoy “koï” carps, plus a circular swimming pool.
Although within easy access to shops and tourist venues, this property is set in a quiet area where you hear only birds sing by the banks of the canal of the “Petit Rhône”.
The internal decoration is really unique, with artefacts such as a roman sarcophagus, a marble bath from Pompei in Italy, and a marble table from “Grand Trianon” in Versailles that had been sold during the French revolution in 1789.
At night from your terrace, you will see wonderful sunsets and observe the flamingos noiseless flight as they set off from the natural ponds that abound in Camargues.
This property is ideal as a permanent home, with a pleasant climate, next to wildlife (also home to wild bulls and horses), and in a perfectly private setting.
Price : 2 300 000 euro
