A fantastic villa in a wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at La Calade - a beautiful, well maintained villa, in a great location.The villa itself is well laid out and decorated in a simple/warm way. Whike the pool is wonderful and shows off the incredible views to the full.

The perfect base for a holiday in the South of France.

I couldn't recommend the villa more highly.

La Calade

A real dream

  • 5 of 5

We spend an exceptionally wonderful time in la calade last summer and we are sure: we will come back. The house is fantastic for 2 families, a lot of piece, nice views and the beach very near (you can walk) and if you want to go to St Tropez or St Maxime, it's very near but actually we were always happy to come back and have this real peaceful house la calade! Thank You Bob - also for a very private and warm arrival. See you soon!

From the Owner

Rayol Canadel is a very sought after conservation area. There is only one building (to my knowledge) over two storeys high. It is totally unspoilt, calm and relaxing. It is easy to explore Var and beyond from Rayol. It is well served by public transport, yet undiscovered by mass tourism. The beach is always accessible and relatively uncrowded as there is very limited parking. The climate is beautiful. Mild winters, gorgeous in Spring through to October. A very 'green' environment throughout the year. The region makes excellent wines and there are numerous vineyards to explore. All in all a wonderful place!
