Barack Obama and his family recently took a vacation to France, and the place they stayed is pretty spectacular.
Holidays and vacations mean something different to all of us. Some like nothing more than to retire to a quiet coastal destination and spend a week on the beach. Others prefer to keep busy during their time off, perhaps on a city break to explore somewhere they have never been before. For the rich and famous, it might not be as simple as that.
The idea of wandering around a busy city when you have a face that is known around the world doesn't sound much like a holiday if you ask us. That's why when Barack and Michelle Obama want to get away from it all, the place they choose to go has to be pretty secluded. Obama might not be the President of the United States any longer, but he will still be instantly recognized by almost everyone who sees him.
If we have now left you pondering where in the world the Obamas could possibly go to escape it all, then wonder no more. Barack and his family reportedly went on vacation to France last week, and stayed in a small town called Avignon, reports CNBC. More specifically, a vacation rental called Le Mar des Poiriers.
As you can see, the nine-bedroom farmhouse is pretty remarkable. It is split into a main seven-bedroom house and a two-bedroom cottage. It has its own gym, swimming pool, tennis court, and even comes with two chefs and two waiters so that those who stay there don't need to lift a finger, at least not at meal times.
Since its a rental, Le Mar des Poiriers is available for anyone to stay in. It will cost you a pretty penny, though, as you might have already guessed. €55,000 per week to be exact, or around $62,500. Perhaps if you have enough friends to put two people in each bedroom and split the cost it wouldn't be so bad. Or you know, became the President of the United States as clearly the job pays pretty well.
