Stunning luxury villa in peaceful location

  • 5 of 5

We spent 1 week at La Toscane and wished it could have been longer. It is a stunning and beautifully designed villa set within lovely gardens and grounds. The rooms open toward the large pool and enclosed courtyard which was so pretty to look at, particularly at night when it was lit up. We were very comfortable in the property which has an enormous lounge and dining area and a good sized kitchen fitted with top quality appliances and every utensil and dish you could ever need. The bedrooms were also very comfortable with good beds and showers.

Although the property and pool might be shared with the owners (if they are in residence), their own apartment is situated on the lower level of the building (it’s on a hillside) and does not overlook the courtyard so it felt very private and the owners only used the pool occasionally and always when we were away. We found the owners delightful and very hospitable, Peter and Margaret seemed to have thought of everything you could possible need on holiday.

Correns is a small quiet village but did have a boulangerie, grocery, bar and restaurant. However we preferred to eat out at Cotignac which was a bit more lively and is about 20 minutes drive away. We highly recommend the fillet steak at La Terrasse in Cotignac which also has a good selection of vegetarian options. We also did a bit of kayaking from Correns which I’m not sure I would recommend if the water level is low. The river is pretty in parts but was very shallow so we had to get in and out of the kayak a lot which was a bit of a drag (literally) although it does have some nice spots to picnic and paddle in if you drive along the road towards Chateauvert. Further afield Tourtour is a beautiful village that is well worth a visit (roughly 45 minutes away).

La Toscane is a delightful place to stay and thoroughly recommended.
