What we like about this house
The design: The interior and the garden give a real feeling of freshness with its smart design and choice of light colours.
The view: A superb view overlooking the Luberon mountains and the pretty village of Oppède le Vieux. A few large mature trees alternate the view, but don’t block it.
Situation: In a very quiet area but 2 min walk from the village centre, ideal for a family wishing to move in with children. The school is a 5 minute walk away, and a bus takes the children to the school 10 minutes by car.
