Inside and around Villa Emmanuelle
Front view of the villa and pool
Villa Emmanuelle is ideally located within walking distance of the Banon village centre (1km away). It has views over the Provence countryside and mountains.
The Pool has wonderful views across the countryside.
The countryside around the Villa is breathtaking. Every room and the pool is facing South and has a view across the valley. The pool also has a removable fence that fully secures it for young children. It is 9m by 4.5 m at a depth of 1.2m to 1.5m.
Pool, pergola and pool side loungers. Pool is paved with Italian marble.
There is plenty of room around the pool with shaded areas provided by the pool pergola. Also note the sand pit located close by the pool so you can keep an eye on your children while lounging. All linen and towels are included (normally a costly extra in France). Pool towels are also included.
Kids play area. Near the pool pergola you can also find a sand pit.
Having a four year old and one year old child ourselves, you will find a range of kids games including swings and sand pit. The kids playground area is located within full view of the villa. The property is fully secured with lockable gate and fenced all around. For adults and teenagers we have two mountains bikes which are available and included in the rental for riding along the fields of lavender, wheat and flowers. We also have available a traditional french Peugeot bike which is probably best for photos.

The kitchen is a large hand built Provence style kitchen.
The kitchen is fully equipped with a dishwasher, microwave, fridge freezer, oven, hob, extractor, coffee maker and quality fixtures. A large compliment of good quality glasses, cutlery, pots and pans is provided so you are not having to wash up the whole time.

There are eleven windows all with Screens so you can enjoy a wonderful breeze through the villa without worrying about insects and five glazed french doors to enjoy the spectacular valley view.
Living room with roaring fireplace. French Doors looking out on countryside view.
The fireplace is wonderful in the cooler months and firewood is included in the rental. Even in Winter the fireplace alone will heat almost the whole villa. To top things off you will find a library of major movie DVDs that will play in English or French for those days in. A small library of books can also be enjoyed during your stay.
