L'Olivier was built in the 1880's for a wealthy merchant as a prestigious family home. Today the house has been lovingly renovated and equipped with all modern comforts. It retains its old world charm, with beautiful original tile floors and decorative fireplaces, whilst being very comfortable to live in.
The house is ideally located, only a stone's throw away from the market square, the bakeries, shops and restaurants, yet in a quiet neighbourhood.
The garden which surrounds the house features a swimming pool (8 x 4mt, with security cover), which can be heated in the shoulder seasons. The terraces are furnished with patio furniture and sun loungers, allowing you to make the most of summer living. Secure parking is provided for one car, and further parking can be found on the street outside the property.

The conservatory was originally an orangery, designed to overwinter plants. It has been completely refurbished with new windows, and the wall that separated it from the kitchen was removed, creating a wonderfully light and airy space with a view onto the garden. The kitchen is fully fitted and equipped with an induction cooker, electric oven, microwave oven, dishwasher electric coffee maker and toaster.
