Le Beau Fief is settled in a traditional, rural hamlet and is just one of thirteen historic, stone gtes overlooking the sun-kissed landscapes. Dating back to the 19th century and with 1000sqm of exclusive grounds, it is a romantic hideout where you can escape the bustling tourist crowds.

While away your days beside your own private pool, sitting out in the sun-drenched courtyard and soaking up the stunning, rural views. Rest in the shaded fruit orchards or dine alfresco on the terrace, watching the captivating sunsets and star-filled skylines. There are mountain bikes and picnic baskets for you to use at your leisure, along with a welcome hamper for your first country adventure.

Behind its alluring, cottage garden lies a boutique country home, that has been stylishly updated to blend new with old. There are original beamed ceilings and exposed stone walls, beside natural textures and state-of-the-art mod-cons. Sophisticated touches add to its chic-bucolic vibe and include antique pieces and vintage designs.
