About the property

4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, plus separate pool-house studio, sleeps up to 11

The traditional Provencal-style villa is situated on a country lane and set in more than an acre of olive trees. It is located a short five-minute drive from the charming and lively Provencal village of Salernes, with its excellent selection of cafés and restaurants.

The property, which offers comfortable accommodation for up to eleven, has a large swimming pool (6 x 12 metres) with several covered terraces for dining or relaxing in the shade. There is a built-in barbecue in a covered poolside terrace. The villa has four large bedrooms and three shower rooms. The separate pool-side studio, equipped with two single beds also has a shower and WC.

Surrounding area: There are many other nearby villages to visit, all with something of interest. The Gorges du Verdon and Lake St Croix which offer swimming, canoeing and walking in breathtaking scenery are only 25 minutes away. The Mediterranean and sandy beaches are also about 50 minutes to the south at Les Issambres, Frejus or St. Maxime and it’s just a little further to St Tropez. The region has many interesting chateaux, abbeys, wine domains, art exhibitions and frequent local markets.

Access : The main auto route, the A8, is only 30 minutes away so Nice, Cannes, Aix en Provence and Marseille are all just over an hour’s drive. Italy is an easy day's outing and so are the picturesque islands just off the coast from Le Lavandou or Hyeres.

An extremely comfortable 'home from home'

  • 5 of 5

We stayed as a family with our daughters, sons-in-law and two very small grandsons and had a wonderful holiday. Villa de la Mude is of a very high standard, well equipped and maintained, very welcoming, and situated in the most idyllic and tranquil area. The delightful garden and the outside amenities we so appreciated by us all. The information the hosts kindly provided was so helpful, especially as we hadn’t visited the area for many years. The house is very near the spectacular Gorges du Verdon, which is well-worth a visit. Also a 'must see' is the nearby very pretty hilltop village of Tourtour, as well as Cotignac and Moustiers Ste Marie.

A wonderful holiday home for all age groups.

Stunning villa and great location....

  • 5 of 5

We had a brilliant holiday in Villa del la mude, the house is beautiful and has everything you might need and the pool is very large for a holiday rental. Having three young children with us we found the pool house incredibly useful. We put toys in there for the kids to play with and were able to stay round the pool after the kids had gotten out.

The local village is lovely and the market on Sunday well worth a visit. There is lots of information in the property about the local area and the property manager gave us plenty of tips when we arrived. The nearby village of Tourtour otherwise known as the 'village in the sky' is absolutely stunning and well worth a village. There are other trips we ought to have done but the lure of the pool was too tempting!

You will need a car for this location as not much is in walking distance, but the location therefore is very quiet and peaceful. The manager was helpful throughout booking and our stay. I highly recommend this property.

Nous avons passé 15magnifiques jours dans cette superbe villa tout confort et très bien entretenue , isolée et très calme ( exception faite des grillons...😜), beaucoup de marchés matinaux à proximité, de très bon restaurants à Sillans la cascade, Salernes,Aups, Lorgues...

Nous avons fait du pédalo sur le lac de Ste Croix et du canyoning dans les gorges du Verdon.

Très belle promenade à la cascade de Sillans

Wunderschöne Ferien in tollem Anwesen

  • 5 of 5

An Pfingsten verbrachten wir (8 Personen) eine wunderschöne Woche in der Villa de la Mude. Das Haus ist sehr geschmackvoll und mit viel Stil eingerichtet. Die Küche ist hervorragend ausgestattet, mit mehr als ausreichend Geschirr und Gläsern. Wir haben uns hier so wohl gefühlt, dass wir auf die meisten der eigentlich geplanten Ausflüge verzichteten. Die Tage genossen wir lieber im Liegestuhl am großen Pool, in einem der gemütlichen Lounge Sessel, oder am schönen Holztisch auf der Terrasse in gemütlicher Runde. Im weitläufigen Garten mit Obst- und Olivenbäumen konnte Ball gespielt werden, außerdem war eine Tischtennisplatte vorhanden.

Die Villa liegt abseits der Hauptstraße, nach Salernes ist es etwa 1/2 Stunde zu Fuß. Die Umgebung ist deshalb absolut ruhig und idyllisch, was allerdings in der Nacht auch Wildschweine zum Besuch des Gartens veranlasste. Der Verwalter vor Ort war sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit (Danke Peter!). Wir können die Villa de la Mude also wirklich sehr empfehlen.

Owner's Response: A very nice review from very nice German guests. I have translated the text for non-German readers (via google translate) At Pentecost, we spent (8 people) a wonderful week at Villa de la Mude. The house is very tastefully decorated and with lots of style. The kitchen is well equipped, with more than enough dishes and glasses. We felt so comfortable here that we gave up most of the actually planned excursions. The days we enjoyed prefer lounging by the large swimming pool, in one of the cozy lounge chair, or the beautiful wood table on the patio in a relaxed atmosphere. The large garden with fruit and olive trees ball could be played, as well as a ping pong table was available. The Villa is located off the main road, after Salernes it is about 1/2 hour walk. The environment is therefore extremely quiet and idyllic, but this at night also prompted boars to visit the garden. The manager on site was very friendly and helpful (thanks Peter). We highly recommend the Villa de la Mude so real.

Salernes has many features typical of villages in Provence. There is a good selection of cafes, restaurants and bars and you will definitely want to visit the lively Sunday market under the tall and leafy plane trees. The area is famous for its ceramics and there are many studios and shops around the village. Within a few km is Tourtour, known as the 'village in the sky' with its panoramic views and a variety of restaurants and shops. Also close by is the village of Sillans-la-Cascade where you can take a relaxing stroll through fields and woods to the impressive waterfall.
