Hidden away in the village of Mollégès amidst lavender fields, apple trees and olive groves, Villa Marianne looks like it’s been lifted straight from a Cézanne painting. Set in the middle of one of the country’s best wine regions, the four-bedroom farmhouse is a wonderful base from which to explore the rest of Provence.
Bordered by a stone wall gate, Villa Marianne - our piece of luxury real estate in Mollégès, in the South of France - is surrounded by a sprawling garden strewn with fruit orchards, cypress trees and weeping willows.
Light and airy, the Provençal farmhouse has a blush façade, light blue shutters and a wisteria-covered pergola for al fresco dining. To the left is a stylish swimming pool attached to its own pool house. The grounds are pristine, perfect for a game of boules under the shade of the trees - it's a picturesque property in Molleges.
The décor of this home is tasteful and subtle, with bronze, sepia and copper shades dominating. Walking into the sitting room, a stone fireplace comes into view, with burgundy and fawn striped armchairs and cream sofas. A separate dining room comes fitted with a rustic table and a brass chandelier that looms over it. All four bedrooms of this luxury villa in Mollégès are decorated in similar earth tones.
Outside the luxury villa is the little village of Mollégès, which sits in the middle of the beautiful Provence in the Alpilles between Cavaillon and St Rémy de Provence. Drive around the surrounding countryside and enjoy the sumptuous views: Provençal country houses, poppies and wild flowers growing on the verges, cypress and plane trees standing tall, with the Alpilles hill as a backdrop.
After taking in the scenery, head to Moulin du Calanquet, a working olive mill for an olive tasting and a browse around the well-stocked shop. Then drive to Avignon, where you can sample some of the region's best wines or pop into Les Halles to stockpile on olive oil, saucissons and chèvre.
“Villa Marianne is an authentically rustic, charming and very private farmhouse villa in a pretty setting in the foothills of Les Alpilles.”

If you've heard of Mollégès, it's almost certainly due to the presence of Mas du Capoun, the village's hugely popular fine dining restaurant. But there's more to this charming village than mouthwatering cuisine.
