Overview

About the property

Fab 4 bedroom villa with infinity pool, sunloungers, great local restauarnts

Les Marjolaines is a gorgeous Provencal style house which is located into the hillside of a private residential estate, 5 minutes drive from the medieval hilltop village of Tourtour in the Haut Var region of Southern France.

The house has a secluded private garden, its own infinity pool (10 x 5m) and enjoys wonderful unspoilt panoramic views over the sun drenched Provencal countryside. This private estate which stretches to 300 acres is a safe environment for a family holiday and benefits from good roads, street lighting, four hard tennis courts (free of charge to our guests), a lake, lovely woodland walks and a large communal pool (24 x 12m). There are 2 restaurants within walking distance of the villa and many more in nearby Tourtour. It is a very peaceful, quiet area and although we have neighbours, the only noise very often is the sound of the varied bird population!

Les Marjolaines is perfect both summer and winter holidays. Off season there is full central heating and a wood burning fire.

The house has plenty of private parking for up to three cars. The accommodation is all on one level and comprises of a large sitting/dining area, four bedrooms (two double, two twin), two bathrooms, a very well equipped kitchen and a built-in barbeque. A travel cot and highchair are also available.

The house has recently been refurbished and decorated with delightful Provencal fabrics. It is a real "home from home"!

Sitting/Dining Room

This lovely bright room with high ceiling and oak beams has two comfortable sofas, coffee table, large oak dining table with eight chairs, sideboard, bookshelves(full of books), cupboards and desk. There is a satellite TV with all British programmes and digital freeview, a DVD and CD player. There is a large selection of board games, DVDs and CDs for all guests to enjoy. The sitting room has a large open fireplace which can be used as a wood burning stove and logs are provided off season. French doors lead from the sitting room to a glazed terrace with comfortable seating and built-in barbeque.

Kitchen

The delightful Provencal fitted kitchen is a gourmet paradise with every possible kitchen utensil and tool to be found as well as all the basic ingredients required for cooking. There is an abundance of crockery, cutlery, glassware and serving dishes for 8 people. A picnic basket and cool bag are provided, plus various baskets for shopping at the Provencal markets! The kitchen has a washing machine, dishwasher, microwave, large fridge freezer, electric oven and ceramic hobs. An iron and ironing board are provided as well as a drying rack and washing lines in the garden. Each bedroom has its own hairdryer.

Cookery books and recipes are available for your use. You need go no further than Tourtour for all supplies. The local market providing seasonal fruit,veg and butcher meat is on Wednesday and Saturday and the village shop provides all essentials.

Bedrooms and Bathrooms

There are four bedrooms and two bathrooms. The master bedroom hosts a king sized bed, fitted wardrobes, large chest of drawers, comfortable sofa and large mirror. A hairdryer is available for guests to use.

Two of the bedrooms have twin beds and the fourth bedroom has a double bed. One of the twin rooms and the smaller double have French windows opening on to the front terrace. These two bedrooms share a shower room. The main bathroom has a bath with shower above, two hand basins and a bidet. There is a separate W.C. The bedrooms all have fitted wardrobes and spacious chest of drawers.

100% white cotton linen, fluffy white towels and pool towels are provided for every guest.

Outside

There are eight sun loungers and a small bistro style table with four chairs. There is also a large wooden table with ten chairs

The terraces beside the house are shady for those who do not like the hot sun, and sunny terraces around the pool for those who do!

In the store adjacent to the house, you will find cushions for the sun loungers as well as picnic chairs and a folding table which can easily be transported in the car. This is great picnic country - real food, picked up from the market en route! Head for the lake, the gorge or perhaps the lavender fields in June and July. The abbey at St Thoronet is a peaceful retreat and the white beaches of the coast are just over an hour away.

About Jo Sutherland

Why Jo Sutherland chose Tourtour

We fell in love with Tourtour on a previous holiday and found this incredible house nearby. We love all of the markets in the nearby hilltop villages - makes cooking here a dream. Provencal wine is also incredible. The local roads are a cyclist's paradise - lots of challenging hills and fine coffee / lunch spots! Often we do nothing other than

lounge in the sun, eat great food at the house and head out to local markets in the car or on cycle trips.

We also love the restaurants nearby - there are several Michelin star restaurants within 20 minutes of our house, and plenty of stunning cheaper alternatives too.

Beautiful house with stunning views!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Les Marjolaines. This was our first trip to Provence and we weren't disappointed. There is plenty to do in the area for both adults and children. We especially liked mooching around the local markets and swimming and boating at the Lac de Croix. The children loved the inflatable assault course at Lac St Cassien. The house was probably the best equipped we have ever rented. We loved sitting the terrace enjoying the view or playing in the pool with one of the numerous infltables which we found in the shed. We also cycled around the domaine ( top tip - don't cycle to the big pool because it's a really steep cycle back up!!!) and tried the grill restaurant at the entrance, which was very good. Enjoyed this holiday 110% and will definitely return. Emma, Alberto, Imogen, Ottilie, Miles, Sarah and Leyton.

Absolutely perfect

  • 5 of 5

The best holiday house we have ever stayed in. Beautiful infinity pool with the best views ever. The property had everything we wanted and more.

Tourtour is lovely in the summer as it is closed to cars during July and August. So lovely to enjoy a drink or meal there during the day or evening.

Once you have stayed in this property you will definitely want to return.

Lovely stay at Tourtour

  • 4 of 5

My family and I (4 teenagers and 2 adults) had a wonderful time at "Les Marjolaines". The view was just magic and the pool was great. It was very calm so an excellent place to really relaxe. The house was cosy, the bedrooms were fully renovated and lovely decorated with good beds. If you plan to eat at "La Table" in Tourtour, I would recommend to book a table prior arriving.
