About Mrs Claude Smith

We renovated this villa about 20 years ago from near ruin and now rent it out during the summer holidays.

We have a key holder who will meet you at the villa on your arrival and departure from the villa.

We spend most of our time at the villa during Spring and Autumn.

We love it! It's peaceful, spacious and relaxing.

The surrounding area is fantastic, fabulous markets, gorgeous beaches and beautiful villages to visit.

We hope you come and stay!

Mrs Claude Smith purchased this villa in 1980

Why Mrs Claude Smith chose La Cadière-d'Azur

We bought this house for it's contemporary layout yet in a traditional built house. We also bought it because of it's privacy and fabulous location with wonderful views.

What makes this villa unique

We just love sitting out on the terrace and taking in the views. We love the fact that we have no traffic nearby or that nobody passes by as we are at the end of a track road.

Perfect Provençal hideaway

  • 5 of 5

We have recently returned home following our second stay at L'Amiradou, and look forward to returning again.

This modern, spacious, and very light house sits alone at the top of a steep track nestled among the vineyards..The slow bumpy ride to the house is so worthwhile, as the views that await you are stunning! Across the beautiful vineyards, you can see the medieval villages of Le Castellet, and La Cadiere.. The terrace at the front of the house, is a wonderful place to sit day or evening to view the changing light across the landscape.. There are also two terraces at the back of the house, so plenty of choice if you need to escape the intense heat of the sun during the day.

The house is well equipped, clean and very comfortable. We were joined by our adult children for 1 week, and had plenty of space. They enjoyed the table tennis table, and the newly laid boules court.. The pool is an ideal size for cooling off, or just to relax and watch the view. The sunsets each evening really were a highlight!

The villages of La Cadiere, and Le Castellet are easily accessible, as is the small town of Le Beaussett.. We kept our boat in Bandol port which is only a 20min drive away... So plenty of beaches within a few minutes drive.

The key holders Didier and his wife Corrine are charming and very helpful..

If you enjoy relaxing in total seclusion this is the perfect hideaway..

THE place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

After our second stay at l'Amaridou, we're still hungry for more! This is a beautiful house, tucked away in the middle of the vines with views over the surrounding countryside in all directions. No noise, no neighbours, it's the ideal place for un-winding. Yet it's close enough to the surrounding Provencale villages (La Cadière, Le Beausset), and to the bigger sea-side towns (Bandol, St Cyr, Toulon) not to be remote or isolated. It's at the end of a fairly rough dirt track, part of the charm of the place for us, but maybe an "obstacle" for others!

The house is airy, spacious, and well-equipped - though most of our time was spent on the big terrace or enjoying the pool. There are many opportunities for visiting the local attractions; for amateurs of wine, there are many of the very well-known Rosé caves within a ston's throw of the house. Access to the autoroute is easy which makes Toulon, Marseille, Aix, Nice and so on all very easy to get to. And of course ALL of the rest of Provence!

The owners, Claude and Anthony have always been very helpful and have done everything to make our stays enjoyable. One of the neighbours (about 1 km away!) is in charge of looking after the changeovers and is on hand in case of "emergencies". The house was clean and we had no emergenies, so all Ok on that front.

To sum up, this is OUR ideal Holiday home. Looking forward to our next stay.
