About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Marble Bathroom, Large terraces, Sleeps 4

Our 19th century stone house is situated on a very beautiful hill surrounded by olive groves, fig trees, pomegranates, vineyards and woods where nightingales sing in the spring, with glorious views south towards the Massif de la Sainte Baume and the Massif des Maures as well as north with the first slopes announcing the Alpes de Haute Provence. Ten acres of private grounds surround Beaurecueil and a dirt lane (1km), unaccessible to sport cars, leads up to it. The house has kept all of its original charm and authenticity although it has just been renovated so you will find all the comforts and conveniences of a modern home. It is an ideal holiday setting for couples and small families seeking relaxation and a 'retour aux sources' in the heart of Provence. The interior is decorated with taste, there are marble floors and antique marble mosaic in the bathroom. A large shaded terrace faces south with a wonderful view and another terrace with four sun loungers faces a stone fountain and a small shallow splash pool where you can cool off in summer. It's also a spectacular place for star gazing as there is no light pollution. Of course the house is fully equipped and you will find all major necessities for a lightweight arrival: bed linen, towels, dish-towels, cleaning products, toilet paper, etc. and also : tea, coffee, milk, cereals, pasta, etc. There is a small quality stereo system with radio, USB, CD and jack so that you can listen to your favourite music. If you have small children they will be thrilled with the extra large sandpit. If you enjoy cooking there is everything you need: heavy iron skillets, sharp knives, cake moulds, rolling-pin, kitchen scale, electric egg whisk, hand blender, large serving dishes, etc. double doors lead from the kitchen directly to the south terrace. And for those of you who enjoy walking there are plenty of paths that will take you for miles up and down the countryside and to the surrounding villages. Beaurecueil is only a short drive from three charming Provençal villages where you will find restaurants, shops, cafés, etc. Cotignac with its beautiful stone cliff, is a 'Village de Caractère' and one of the most authentic villages of the region, Entrecasteaux is known for its imposing castle and Carcès has a pretty lake. In every village, there is a picturesque market held once a week. Beaurecueil is ideally situated to visit the region, whether you like wine tasting, gastronomical restaurants or visiting outstanding places. Sainte-Croix lake and the beautiful Gorges du Verdon 'Grand Site de France' is only 45 minutes away. The very lovely Abbaye du Thoronet, true jewel of Romanesque art (18 km.). Saint-Tropez, Aix-en-Provence and Cannes are each about an hour away. Nice, Marseille and Avignon are between one and a half and two hours away. The Italian coast is only a little further. On the other hand, if you stay here you might just forget the world and enjoy the simple pleasures of life: reading a book, going for a walk, indulge in farniente, or if you have children just sit back and take time to watch them grow, like I have.

Last but not least, we shall be here to welcome you when you arrive, give you advice and assist you over the phone, sms, whatsapp or through email if needed and we will do our very best to make your stay a happy and comfortable home away from home.

About B. McGarvie

I have been living in this beautiful setting for the past 26 years and have had the joy of watching my small children turn into young adults, day by day. Today I enjoy sharing this unique environment with others.

B. McGarvie purchased this house in 1990

Why B. McGarvie chose Brignoles region

A wonderful environment, away from everything with breathtaking views and yet with Cotignac close by, a beautiful village with great atmosphere where you will find all one needs: little boutiques, small supermarkets, bakers, butcher, fishmonger, lots of restaurants and cafés, pharmacy, garage and petrol pump, doctors, vets etc., as well as one of the nicest weekly markets of the area. And of course an easy access to the coast and airports.

What makes this house unique

A beautiful setting with everything you need, whether it be a guide book, an oyster opener, hamocs or a heart shaped cake mould for your loved one's birthday, you will most likely find it here.

We shall be here to welcome you when you arrive, give you advice and assist you over the phone or through email if needed and we will do our very best to make your stay a happy and comfortable home away from home.

Maison merveilleuse, vue exceptionnelle

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une semaine au mois de mai 2016 dans cette maison avec nos 2 enfants. Nous l'avons trouvée merveilleuse, très charmante. La vue est magnifique et c'était un bonheur de déjeuner sous les arbres juste devant la maison. On avait en plus tout les jours des fraises du jardin ! L'intérieur de la maison est aussi très charmant, très bien équipé et très propre. Les propriétaires sont très accueillants.

Pour les activités, nous avons apprécié de faire du Kayak à coté sur l'Argens (15min de la maison) et de la randonnée (guides trouvés à la maison de la presse de Cotignac). Le village de Cotignac est très sympa, le marché le mardi aussi.

Nous espérons bien faire un nouveau séjour dans cette maison l'année prochaine.

Was für ein Ausblick!

  • 5 of 5

Romatisches Hideaway...

Wir haben im Spätsommer eine Woche Urlaub in der Provence gemacht, bei schönstem Sonnenwetter.

Das Häuschen ist sehr liebevoll und individuell mit Antiquitäten eingerichtet. Der Ausblick ist wirklich spektakuläre - Sonnenuntergänge und Vollmond auf der Terrasse geniessen. Absolut ungestört und ruhig. Wir kommen aus Berlin und haben daher diese Stille besonders genossen.

Nicht zu vergessen: kühle Abende bei prasselndem Kaminfeuer geniessen. Wunderbar.

Ein ganzes grosses Kompliment an unsere Landlady Boyaca!

Absolute Empfehlung.

Osterferien 2015

  • 5 of 5

Wir (4 Pers.+Hund) hatten eine wunderschöne Ferienwoche in Cotignac. Der Blick von der Terrasse in die Umgebung und der Garten sind traumhaft. Auch das Haus ist sehr geschmackvoll und liebevoll eingerichtet. Boyaca gab uns viele wertvolle Tips für unsere Tagesausflüge und war immer sehr hilfsbereit bei all unseren Fragen. Wir wären am liebsten noch viel länger geblieben. Vielen lieben Dank Boyaca. Wir kommen gerne wieder.

Excellent séjour dans une très belle maison

  • 5 of 5

Excellent séjour dans une très belle maison de qualité, un superbe cadre, très calme dans la verdure de la Provence verte. Très bon accueil et précieux conseil de la propriétaire pour découvrir les petits villages environnements (marché, point de vue, visite, restaurants et commerçants "locaux").

Charme en rust in overvloed

  • 5 of 5

Een bestaand huisje van een wijnboer dat lang leeg gestaan had werd met veel liefde vergroot en ingericht. De eigenares heeft er geruime tijd gewoond met haar gezin en dat merk je. Dit is geen vakantiehuisje waar alles zo goedkoop mogelijk werd ingericht. Integendeel, alles is waardevolle antiek of nieuw van topkwaliteit.

Werkelijk alles is aanwezig.

Het zicht van op de terras is zeer mooi. Men heeft er 100% privacy en rust en de eigenares, een zeer aangename dame, is zeer discreet en heeft er alles aan gedaan om ons een aangenaam verblijf te bezorgen.

De aarden toegangsweg naar het huisje is op een paar plaatsen in slechte staat en moet met grote voorzichtigheid bereden worden. Eerlijk gezegd toch wel telkens een spannend moment. Best eerst informeren bij de eigenares of je wagen geschikt is.

In Cotignac, op minder dan 10 min rijden, is alles wat men nodig heeft.

Kortom wij hebben hier een zeer aangename vakantie doorgebracht en kunnen dit huis ten stelligste aanbevelen.
