See inside: Obama family’s luxury villa in France

Barack Obama, the 44th President of the United States, has chosen the Gard (Occitanie) for a week’s family holiday this summer, and images of the €55,000-per-week luxury villa have now been revealed.

The seven-bedroom, 18th-century house is in Villeneuve-lès-Avignon, and covers almost 1,200 square metres.

President Obama is staying at the property along with his wife Michelle, and daughters Sasha and Malia - along with their usual security staff.

Known as “Le Mas des Poiriers” the property has two extra bedrooms in an outbuilding, and also features 26 hectares (65 acres) of private gardens, sunflower fields, pear orchards, tennis courts, a boules pitch, a fitness room, and a swimming pool. On-site private chefs prepare all meals and snacks, using local ingredients.

The house even has its own successful Instagram account, showing many more photos and views of the site.
