About the property

Country house, 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, separate WC, sleeps 8-10, 16acres

Our house is located at the head of a valley, facing south with views for miles towards The Massif des Maures and the coast. It sits in a tranquil position in 16 acres of its own land, yet is a short distance (1km) from one of the more beautiful villages in Provence. It has been lovingly and stylishly converted to a very high standard while still retaining its original Provençal features. There are high beamed ceilings and travertine floors throughout. The house benefits from a large open plan kitchen living room with a Lacanche style cooking range and open fire. The kitchen spills out through French doors to a large terrace with BBQ. Beyond the terrace is a large infinity pool with stunning views down the valley.

There is Sky TV, DVD, wireless internet and ipod speakers.

Restful, peaceful time in rural Provence.

  • 5 of 5

We really appreciated the quiet, rustic setting. The property was the perfect base for us to explore Cotignac, Aups, Tourtour, Entrecasteaux, and other nearby villages. A visit to Château La Coste, located north of Aix-en-Provence, is highly recommended; as well as booking a house tour at 'Cap Moderne' (featuring inspiring modernist architecture by Eileen Gray, and Le Corbusier) in Roquebrune-Cap-Martin. If you need a relaxing break, I do not think it gets better than Cotignac and the French Riviera. Excellent local organic rosé, white, and red wines during our week made our stay even better!

Lovely house with wonderful view.

  • 4 of 5

The house is tastefully renovated and well equipped and is spectacularly located on a hillside with an expansive view of the surrounding countryside. Best to rent a small SUV to handle the access road. There's a pleasant easy walk over the hill into town.

A truly lovely spot

The house is very well equipped and we had everything we needed, and the pool is absolutely stunning with great views. A little bit of paradise in Cotignac. We loved it. Thank you .

Great secluded property with stunning views and pool

  • 5 of 5

The property is situated up a windy track from the main road, but when you get to it, wow is it worth it! The infinity pool looks out over the surrounding countryside with no other properties in sight. The outdoor dining area is an ideal setting for long evening meals. The kitchen is well equipped and there is even Sky TV which was useful for the Lions tour!

Cotignac is either a 30 minute walk or a 10 minute drive away and is full of character. Don't forget to take a basket from the pantry to the Tuesday market. There are restaurants aplenty in the area and we didn't find a bad one. We also visited the spectacular Verdon Gorge, but go early as it does get busy.

We will be coming back I'm sure.

Fantastic location brilliant house

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have just returned from a 2 week holiday at Johns fantastic house.....and we loved it!!! It was so peaceful, no neighbours, so the kids (9 and 7) could shout and scream all they wanted! A fantastic setting overlooking beautiful countryside. The house has everything what you need. Internally it's a fantastic old beamed house with plenty of space. Outside is brilliant, if you have kids like ours they loved it in the swimming pool, the table tennis, Jenga and the open space. Wherever you sit you are always close to the pool so you can watch the kids. You can walk into Cotignac, if you go the right way, it takes about 25 minutes. Or it's a short 10 min drive with loads of parking and never too busy. Cotignac is a must place to visit, the place is full of history. It's very french and the people are a delight, but booking restaurants is recommended as you will struggle to just turn up in the high season. The surrounding towns are all worth a visit.

If you want to get away from the day to day stress and strains of life then I would recommend this place

The Bastide is situated in the heart of Provence, at the head of a valley facing south. The house is centrally located for St Tropez and the Riviera coast, an easy drive to the south and 30 minutes to the Lac St Croix and the Gorges du Verdon to the north. Aix en Provence is less than an hours drive.

It is a walk into the village and the boulangerie yet positioned in a tranquil spot. Cotignac is listed as one of 'The most beautiful villages of Provence'. Good restaurants, weekly food market, regular antique markets, a walkers paradise. There are numerous pretty villages nearby, TourTour (The village in the sky), Aups the truffle capital and Villecroze. There are several local spectacular waterfalls, kayaking, horse riding, golf, tennis and quad biking. There are several Michelin starred restaurants within easy reach.
