The Experience

The owners have created a space that you’ll want to return to. This big ‘neo-Provençal’ house and terraced garden is a tranquil hideaway with plenty of space to kick back. Hang out in the lovely pool area or a secret corner of the garden.

Artist Morag’s colourful paintings liven up the walls while local antiques, good kilims and personal mementoes make the house a home. Sink into the sofa before the open fireplace and browse the vast selection of books – there are plenty on Provence. The well-kitted out kitchen is inviting and you’ll soon be piled round the gleaming antique refectory table for big, chatty meals.

Fine big bedrooms and pretty tiled bathrooms await upstairs. Head out for water sports of every description on Lac de Saint Cassien, local markets, golf at Terre Blanche, or walking in the hills behind Callian.

Reviews

A particularly charming, quiet and harmonious place to stay amid a paradise of luxuriant vegetation. While I was there, I kept thinking how restorative it would be to have a long, leisurely breakfast on that terrace facing such a breath-taking view!

Denise, Sawday's inspector

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.

Location

The neighbourhood

Perched on the hillside, Callian is a ten minute walk or two minute drive and has shops and two very good restaurants. One of the oldest villages in the Var, it's a lovely spot to wander around. Cruise the clifftop roads, sunbathe on the beaches (the coast is a 30 minute drive), browse the weekly markets - whether it's food, antiques or bric-a-brac that take your fancy you'll find it here.
