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.
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.”
