The Yorkes have lavished quantities of care on their big ‘neo-Provençal’ house and terraced garden. It’s a seductive, tranquil hideaway in a cocoon of luxuriant vegetation, like a balcony hanging over the glorious scenery. Inside there is space and a sense of calm. Artist Morag has a flair for colour and impeccable, unpretentious taste: gold, turquoise, blue, brick-red and white are married with Indian cottons, local antiques, good kilims and personal mementoes – the house of a family you would like to know better. Her enchanting and colourful paintings decorate the walls, the lime-green sofa before the open fireplace is almost edible, there are all the books on Provence you may need. Plus fine big bedrooms, pretty Salernes-tiled bathrooms, a beautifully renovated Provençal kitchen, with all mod-cons, to prepare for the stupendously gleaming antique refectory table. Then choose the lovely pool area or a secret corner in the luscious garden, or go for water sports of every description on Lac de Saint Cassien, golf at Terre Blanche, or walking in the hills behind Callian.

We had a lovely time at this villa. Very quite and secluded and we immediately felt very at home. Villa had everything you could need. We didn't know before we went but due to the split level suitable for two families and/or a split of older/younger people.
