Where do you want to go?
Villa Picasso is a vintage property that has recently been completely renovated and restructured to become an ultra contemporary home. However, not all of its original 1950’s features have disappeared. They have been subtly and tastefully taken advantage of, to cleverly fit into creating an original and harmonious modern style. The use of high quality materials such as wood, stone, steel and latest generation resins all contribute to highlight and show off the property at its best. The black and white “cube” that is the house is made wonderfully attractive by the harmony and balance created by the colors used and the deliberate Asian style that provides space as well as comfort. Everything is minimal and refined, from the leather sofas, to the lacquered tables and side boards to the precious fabrics. The home features beautiful ornaments, interesting paintings and above all, generous light flooding in everywhere through a series of glass doors all opening out onto a flowered garden and a south facing furnished terrace. A lap pool (protected by an alarm) and its clear water stretches out invitingly at the foot of the terrace.
The large village of St. Rémy is only a few minute walk away; 800 meters finds you in the village square and the church. This proximity has the benefit of offering real village life without the use of a vehicle for those wanting to experience a new kind of freedom during their holidays. Wednesday and Saturday are market days in St. Remy, a staple of village life that all should partake.
Villa Picasso consists of two levels. The ground level offers a spacious, flat area punctuated by large openings and a clever arrangement of screens allowing for the organization of internal spaces according to their usage. At the center there is a comfortable living room, to the east a dining room and opening out to the west side you find an unusual, though practical, designer kitchen. Nothing is left out in this very interesting kitchen, which displays an array of forms and styles found even in the unique light fittings. Close to the kitchen, which hides behind a screen, there is an entrance area widening into a kind of library/office, itself leading to a landing and a metal swan-neck shaped flight of stairs reaching to the first floor and the bedrooms. Close to this staircase there is a utility room, cloakroom, and guest WC.
The upper floor has wooden floors throughout. A corridor leads to a Master Bedroom with queen bed and a large en-suite bathroom, with fitted dressing room and toilet. Guests will appreciate the lively match between shades of color, light and materials. This space once more shows the same Asian inspiration of clean lines and sophistication. The second bedroom offers a queen canopy bed with decor in soft tones of blues and browns. The third bedroom is cheerful and bright and has a queen-size bed. Both these bedrooms share a bathroom with shower.
This is a totally unique house that plays with the light and sunshine and will allow you to spend the happiest of holidays in the Alpilles!
