Inside is unpretentious: three sweet and simple en-suite bedrooms, a lounge to relax in with books, a dining room with help-yourself drinks. Jane and Alban usher you in with rosé and tapenade, inviting you to explore the beautiful grounds. There are grand plans afoot to redesign the entrance and add a petanque court to accompany the pretty pool and barbecue area.
Breakfast on Provence-sourced deliciousness: cakes and crunchy baguettes, fresh fruit, flakey croissants and organic jam, homemade yogurt. Ask for a picnic; enjoy it in the garden under the shade of cork oaks and mulberry trees to the sound of tweeting birds and the occasional rumble of a tractor.
In spring the park is filled with wildflowers.The valley of St Clement is more Tuscan than Provençal, noted for its microclimate and shielded from the Mistral. You’re close to Med beaches and St Tropez is a 20-minute drive, though longer in the full flush of summer.
