Mas des Avelines - Olives and Vines

Le Castellet, Var

Consider long languid afternoons by the saltwater pool... or ping pong, jungle gym, trampoline. Peaceful luxury in Provence


5 bedrooms


Sleeps 10


Considering its closeness to the coast (Bandol is only 15 minutes away) this pocket of Provence, a hop from the autoroute, is wonderfully unspoilt. A driveway flanked with ancient olives leads to your meticulously restored ‘mas,’ with dreamy views to the perched village above, and the friendly housekeeper who lives nearby meets, greets and shows you around. She cleans, too, and leaves a lovely country breakfast six days a week, so no need to rush out for croissants. You enter a large entrance hall with an even larger living area off it, open-plan, tiled-floor and contemporary, with a bleached antique table, pale-blue sofas, satellite TV, Sonos sound, books, games and a kitchen that’s a cook’s delight. You’re also blessed with a pizza pergola, a summer kitchen, and small shops nearby, in hilltop La Cadière d’Azur. Four immaculate bedrooms lie upstairs and one down, each with a fabulous bathroom. Wake to blue skies and cicadas, drift onto peaceful patios, relax in young gardens, discover markets, vineyards, medieval perched villages, and beautiful Cassis on the coast.

Local points of interest from Su Stephens

  • Mas des Avelines is situated 10km from the Circuit Paul Ricard which will be hosting the French Grand Prix plus many other races. The Hotel du Castellet opposite the track has one of the regions Michelin starred restaurants.
  • The house is located less than a 20 minute drive from the beaches at St Cyr Sur Mer and Bandol. Not only will you love the coastline but the bars and restaurants you will find there. We can provide you with details of our favourites.
  • The hilltop villages of Le Castellet and La Cadière d'Azur are within a few minutes drive and wonderful places to spend a quiet afternoon.
  • The house is surrounding by AOC Bandol vineyards. We can provide you with lots of suggestions for wine tasting in the area including Domaine Ott which is a five minute drive from the house.
  • For the chilldren there are lots of wonderful things to do including Le Royaume des Arbres (where they can swing in the trees), Go Karting at Circuit Paul Ricard, horse riding, OK Corral (fun park) and of course the beaches.
  • You will find local Provencal markets every day within the area. Wednesday mornings you will find a wonderful market at Sanary Sur Mer which includes food as well as you usually Provencal items. Afterwards enjoy a walk in this charming village.
