Mas Saint Antoine

Cotignac, Var

Original features and simple, modern furnishings make this a fuss-free country base for walks, kayaking and breezy outdoor living


3 bedrooms


Sleeps 8


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, the downstairs bathroom is small if you’ve a full house; there’s traffic noise from the nearby rural road at busy times. The galley kitchen is well-equipped, 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.
