The Experience

Next to a vineyard, surrounded by woods and skirted by a river, this place is all about the outdoors. Take the riverside walk to Cotignac, kayak on Lac de Carcès or hike the Gorges du Verdon. Your base is a sturdy, frill-free farmhouse, long and narrow with terracotta floors, low beams and a mix of exposed stone and white plaster walls. Rooms are compact and furnishings are neat – white-painted or plain pine chests and tables, modern chairs – with colourful kilim rugs, Moroccan lamps and a wood-burning stove adding warmth and colour. Bedrooms, though plain, feel country-fresh with wrought-iron bedsteads, muslin curtains, striped rugs and bright bedcovers. The two annex bedrooms are more spacious and contemporary. Be aware, there’s traffic noise from the nearby rural road at busy times and the second downstairs shower room is small if you’ve a full house, but the main bathroom is more spacious with a roll-top bath. The galley kitchen is well-equipped and full of natural light, and you have plenty of outdoors eating areas overlooking the vineyard and wildflower meadows. For days at home, there’s a pool to sunbathe next to, shady mulberry trees and your very own olive grove to explore. Very French!

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Katy & Tom Ansorg

  • Mas Saint Antoine is less than a five minute drive from the village of Cotignac, a 'Village de Caractère’ in the heart of Provence known for its unique stone cave dwellings in the cliff. Don't miss the excellent weekly Tuesday market.
  • Cotignac is a bustling vibrant village with a burgeoning art scene, and plenty of shops, cafes and restaurants to choose from. Behind the Romanesque church is an open-air theatre which is a great place for festivals and concerts in the summer.
  • The very lovely Abbaye du Thoronet, true jewel of Romanesque art is also nearby. Sainte-Croix lake and the beautiful Gorges du Verdon offering watersports and hiking trails are only 45 minutes by car.
  • You can go off on lovely country walks directly from the house without driving anywhere. There is great hiking in the surrounding hills. Bikes can be hired locally.
  • If you love wine, there are many local Domaines you can visit for wine tasting. Try the Vignerons de Cotignac Co-operative for local wine and olive oil, or visit the vineyards of Chateau Carpe Diem, Clos de L’Ours or Chateau Nestuby.
  • Nearest airports are at Nice (1.15 hours) and Marseilles (1 hour). The TGV station in Aix-en-Provence is 1 hour away. The beaches around Saint-Tropez, Saint-Maxime, Cassis and Hyères are just over an hours drive away.
