The surroundings

The apartment is attached to, but fully independent of, a beautiful new family home, built in traditional provençal style with pretty louvered shutters.  It has access to a large wooded garden with majestic pines, olive trees, oaks and ancient stone wall restanques within which lies a beautiful 10m pool with sun beds and inflatables.  The pool is fully fenced for your safety and is shared with the owners.  In the garden you'll find a trampoline and a boule pitch for aficionados of the provençal game.

Lou Messugo is surrounded by quiet, wooded residential land, far from the crowds and very peaceful yet only a 10 minute stroll into the centre of Roquefort les Pins where all modern amenities can be found including banks, a supermarket, bakeries, butchers, greengrocer and delis, several restaurants, a florist, newsagent (with UK newspapers), beautician, hairdresser, postoffice, 2 pharmacies and modern 2-screen cinema.  There are also several Englsih speaking doctors.
