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.

A super return trip to this lovely house was just as special as the first time. The location is stunning and the house delightful with shady and sunny outside spaces, a flower filled garden and a beautiful pool. The accommodation is spacious , light and airy and is spread over three floors. The kitchen is incredibly well equipped! The highlight of most days was sitting on the terrace enjoying the wonderful view and soaking up the sun shine whilst sampling the excellent local produce. The village is only ten minutes walk away and has good restaurants too.

Elaine, Crowborough

Just a delight! The terrace has magical views over the plain below, the house is well equipped and very comfortable and the gardens and pool add to the overall charm. It is the perfect place to escape to and just absorb the atmospheres and warmth of the region. The village is within walking distance and has a good bakers and butchers and a mini market , plus several restaurants. Robert is an excellent host and provides detailed information about the house and area. The many hill top villages are wonderful just to wander in .

Elaine, Crowborough

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.

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.
