A "special" 18th century French farmhouse with pool and beautiful gardens which lies just a short drive from the French Riviera is in need of new owners. Tempted?
Where is it?

This property has the added advantage of being close to the lovely walks along the Canal du Siagne. The property is also located close to two regional parks of the Préalpes d'Azur and Verdon.
How much does it cost?
The property has been reduced from €998,000 to €785,000 (£686.977, $966, 266) depending on exchange rates.
