About the Owner

We live in Holland and have 2 daughters and 5 grandsons. We are both scientists and will enjoy our French house even more since we are both retired. Since 1976 the Var region has been our regular holiday destination and we fell in love with its beauty.

'Just a short note to let you know that we had a great holiday in your beautiful house in Le Thoronet. Everything was to our full satisfaction, the children as well enjoyed it immensely. We all back here now in rainy Munich with great memories, a few bottles of good wine and olive oil and fantastic petanque skills. Regards Alain Luck'

Excellent property, lovely pool, great views.

  • 5 of 5

As 2 families holidaying together this property suited us well as each family had their own part of the house with lots of communal space for socialising. We loved using the outdoor kitchen and eating on the terrace. Air conditioning was great given the heat wave. The kids loved the pool and the inflatables. The area was lovely with plenty to explore. The house was very clean and well equipped. A fantastic, relaxing week - we would all like to return. Highly recommend!

a wonderfull stay at 'les chênes verts'

  • 5 of 5

'Les Chênes verts'

A beautiful charming Provencal Villa indeed!!! Everything descripted regarding location, facilities,... was more than accurate. The property was very clean, and 'les gardiens' oo so friendly. Marie and David are more than just the house keepers! We were looking for a quiet environment to spend the holidays , we found more than that!! A very nice home for us and our 4 teenagers, a large refreshing swimming pool, a place in the center of the Var that I would recommend to all my friends . 'LeThoronet' a typical provencal village where you find all you need (bakery, fresh vegetables, butcher,...). At driving distance, in the range of 20 km, a lot of nice villages. What we love the most : Tourtour, 'le village dans le ciel'.

It was a perfect stay, hope to be back next year.

A piece of paradise

  • 5 of 5

Having stayed two years running at Les Chenes Verts we have found it to be the perfect place for an extended family group. Whatever the weather or time of day, there is always somewhere pleasant to sit, to contemplate the gardens, the petanque court or the beautiful view of the distant hills. Some of the aspects that we found particularly beneficial were: the generous sized pool - we spent hours in it. The 2 units are very well equipped with everything you might need, particularly if you want to cook or need to do washing. The air conditioning was a welcome relief from the heat of the day and my parents were pleased to have their own self-contained accommodation. There are even yoga mats available - I can thoroughly recommend practising yoga at sunrise on the main terrace!

The property has been clean and ready for us both times we've stayed and the owner is very friendly and responsive to any questions.

Nearby attractions for the younger members of the family include canoeing on the Argens and accrobranche, both located together on the road to Carces – D562, and go karting at Le Luc. The nearby villages are a delight – Entrecasteaux and Villecroze being just two that are well worth a visit. The Tuesday market at Lorgues is good – but our main reason for visiting this year was to get our hands on the nougat sold at one of the stalls. It is very expensive but fabulous! Arrive early as it gets extremely busy. My brother took his daughter (19) on what looked like a hair-raising walk in the Gorges du Verdon, but they came back with huge grins on their faces. My son and I went for the gentler activity of snorkelling in the Med.

Overall, highly recommended.

This is the best house we have rented over the past 6 years in France.

The house is perfect, beautiful rooms, 3 kitchens, great garden, large pool and several terraces (with breath-taking view). Also the location is perfect for trips. (beach, Verdon, Lorgues...).

Next year we 'll be back!!!

Le Cannet-des-Maures
"the Saturday morning vide greniers at the railway station is one of the best in the Var regi..."
"Lovely Provencial market on tuesday mornings"

From the Owner

To have a second house in the Var was a longstanding dream. We looked for a location not too close to the hectic beach region, but still close enough to enjoy the Mediterranean see regularly. We are lovers of good wine (I’m even a hobby wine importer) and found our house in the middle of a fantastic wine area in the centre of the Var.

From the Owner

We fell for its location and wonderful views. The great plot of land was transformed into a garden full of flowers. Its location close to the highways A8/A57 is very practical for trips. The entire Provence region is within reach in one to maximum 2 hours. After upgrading the villa we have extended the house in 2010. The new very Provencal apartment is ideal for families like ours or to have holidays with friends. Four terraces surrounding the house, each with its specific atmosphere and the new sun-room invites to live always outside.
