Villa Theleme (VU005A)
This large villa is just 5 minutes drive from the beautiful Provencal town of Isle-sur-Sorgue. The town is famous for its numerous waterways and mills, for its many restaurants along the canal banks and above all for its antique shops. There are no fewer than 350 Antiquaires here, which makes it second only to Paris in the antiques trade.
The accommodation is in two parts: the main house has 5 bedrooms and two bathrooms (sleeps 8/10) and there is an apartment with separate entrance around the side of the house which has 2 bedrooms and a bathroom (sleeps 3/4, see ref VU05a).
In July and August the whole property i.e. the house and apartment is let as one and tenants have exclusive use of the garden and pool. In Mid and low seasons, one can rent either both parts together, or the apartment on it's own, in which case the swimming pool and garden are shared with the owners.

A flight of steps lead up from parking area to terrace which extends all along the south and west sides of the building. French windows give direct access to this terrace from the hallway, living/dining room, and from two of the bedrooms.
A large entrance hall (12m2) leads to the spacious living/ dining room (33m2). The dining table can be extended to seat up to 16 people.
Dresser with a wide choice of crockery.
On the opposite side of the hall is a very well equipped kitchen, in the basement which is on the same level as the garden there is also a second kitchen, this is much more basic than the kitchen upstairs but handy when one is dining outside by the pool for cool drinks and so on. Next to the kitchen, off the hall, is a utility room.
Then there is a very attractive bathroom with two wash-basins, sunken bath, shower-over with etched glass splash guard. wc.
At the far end of the hall/corridor there is a shower room with wc and wash-basin.
There are 4 bedrooms on the ground floor.
The master bedroom (16m2) has a double bed and French windows out to the south-facing terrace. Another bedroom (10m2) with double bed also has French windows to the south terrace. A third bedroom (12m2) with double bed and 1 single bed looks out over the olive grove at the north end of the garden, while the fourth bedroom (14m2), also with double bed, faces east.
The fifth bedroom "under the eaves" should be regarded as overflow - suitable only for hardy teenagers as it can get rather hot in the height of summer! (hence the main house sleeps "8 in comfort" and "13 possibly 14 if the owner adds another single bed at a push!"). It is reached via the stairs in the living room and trap-door at top of the stairs (so unsuitable for young children or the elderly): 1 double bed + double sofa bed, exposed beams (20m2).
The apartment entrance is around the back (east) side of the house, and has its own little terrace. The front door leads straight in to the nicely furnished kitchen/living/dining room (17m2 ), bedroom (14m2) with double bed. Smaller bedroom (9m3) with two single beds.
Shower room with wc.
