The Owners Cottage at Grande Provence is a testament to period grandeur and contemporary luxury. Comprising the beautifully appointed Cottage are four rooms, a deluxe suite, conservatory, lounge, swimming and spa pool area.
Blanketed in a palette of charcoal grey and white linen, the rooms beckon an indulgent experience. "Even though the rooms are homely, they also house discreet technology, says Virginia Fisher, New Zealand-based interior designer.
"Lush lawns edged with dark green hedges contrast with creamy travertine tiles and inset pebbles, while white walls delineate the deck chairs and lounging areas, juxtaposing the cool and crisp swimming pool. The spa pool punctuates the landscape with a stunning, elevated view of the surrounds. Harmony permeates every angle."
