About the property

Maison with Amazing Vie3 Double Bedrooms 3 Bathrooms Large Swimming Pool Peaceful Location 5 Minute Walk To Village Housekeeper 24/

3 double bedroom house with 10x5 pool outside kitchen with bbq facility and outside pool changing room with shower and toilet. Main double bedroom on suite and guest double and twin share bathroom. The kitchen has dishwasher, electric hob, washing machine, dryer, ironing board, toaster, and all John Lewis crockery & cutlery. Electrically operated gates with double garage for keeping your car cool in the heat of the summer. Set down a short drive off the road. The view over the national park is one of the best in the var. This house is self contained with privacy and access to the beautiful country side. There is also a make up bed for 2 on the first floor (total 8 people). There are numerous toys in the pool room along with bats and balls. Nice airport is just over an hour. The fresh water lake with swimming and beach is an hour away and is very popular in the summer. There are three supermarkets within 10 min drive and the village has two restaurants in walking distance. You can walk to the bakery in the mornings and your bread will still be warm. The Cascade is a place where you can stall all day with a picnic. The water is crystal clear. You have to see it to believe it Lac de Sainte Croix is the Grand Canyon of the south of France. its almost like your own private seaside resort. take time to research all the local attractions. You will see many famous faces lurking in some of the restaurant's. I can tell you where to spot the stars.

Absolutely lovely property

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in August - family with three kids.

Location - on a hillside in Provence overlooking hills and forests. Walking distance to local town and to la cascade with plenty of wild swimming. Quiet, private property.

Facilities - everything you need and at a higher standard than your regular holiday rental. Summer kitchen too. Pool is lovely, diligently maintained and not overly managed with chemical additives. Sun loungers etc and good provision to play music and really relax

Booking process - very easy and smooth. Housekeeper there to meet you and comes to take the key when you leave.

Summary - Highly recommended.

This really is a beautiful property. It is built externally in the traditional style, but inside everything is modern and tasteful. The property is clean and well maintained and the housekeeper is very helpful. It has everything you need: TV, modern cooker, all cooking utensils and a utility room. There are also bikes and helmets for the energetic.

The pool is a good size with a pool room which also houses a large barbeque. The garden is well kept and the view to the valley is very tranquil. There are neighbours, but they are far enough away not to be noticed. The village of Sillans is a 10 minute walk away and has a couple of good restaurants and a bar. There is also a patisserie. The new path to make the waterfall area safe is being built at the moment, so hopefully people will soon be able to walk to the pools. There are several lovely old villages within a short drive as well as the Lac de Sainte-Croix and the Canyon du Verdon a bit further on.

It's a lovely place to visit and is much more attractive than the photos show.

Fabulous Villa

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in lots of villas of the years but this has to be, by far, our favourite.

Stunning views and peaceful surroundings.

The villa itself is beautiful. The grounds are well maintained and the furnishings are of a really high quality.

The couple that looked after the villa were lovely and really helpful with advice on the area and not at all intrusive during our stay. The owner was accommodating with any requests.

We didn't travel too far as we only stayed for a week but enjoyed visiting Aups, where there was a lovely market one evening that's worth a visit. Also had a couple of great meals at Auberge de la Tour, the setting was lovely.

I wouldn't hesitate in recommending this villa to any of my family and friends. It really is a lovely place for a holiday.
