About Peter Hobbs (Owner)

We have been renting out La Toscane since we bought the property 17 years ago. Peter comes from a Hotel and Whisky Distilling background having lived in the Highlands of Scotland in the shadow of Ben Nevis. Previously, I lived in Vancouver, British Columbia and think this city ranks as one of the most beautiful in the world. Margaret is a free-lance artist and was head of an Art department at a well known school in Edinburgh. Needless to say, We love Travelling, enjoy Sailing on the West Coast of Scotland and enjoying Skiing in the Alps.

Peter Hobbs (Owner) purchased this chateau / country house in 1998

A Superb Holiday Experience

  • 5 of 5

Although it has been several months since our visit to La Toscane, the fantastic memories we have of the experience has left me compelled to write what will be my first ever travel review.

Over the past few summers, we have become seasoned visitors to France for our family holidays. We are a family consisting of 2 hard to please 40 somethings and three even harder to please boys aged 17,14 and 8 years.

From the time of booking, we were made to feel at ease due to Peter’s (the owner) friendly and helpful communications.

On the day of arrival we were able to easily find La Toscane and were warmly welcomed by Peter and Margaret, who showed us around the beautiful property. It really is stunning and no matter how good the photos appear on the website, they cannot quite do it justice.

La Toscane is a substantial villa with a superb pool at its centre. The property itself is approximately 1.5 km out of the typical French village of Correns and surrounded by unspoilt countryside. Correns contains a small but well stocked shop, local Co-op wine store (superb), Tabac, bar, bakery, art gallery and a few other amenities.

La Toscane is well appointed and maintained to a high standard. The rooms are ample and tastefully decorated. All have access to the inner section containing the pool. The pool itself is a joy. It is large and very fastidiously well maintained. The pool is bordered by manicured grass areas, with covered patio areas for al-fresco dining and sun loungers. The top of the range gas BBQ was easy to use and gave superb results. The villa was lovely and clean both inside and out.

Peter and Margaret are the prefect hosts. They were on hand for advice and recommendations and went out of their way to ensure we had a lovely stay, however they were never imposing in any way. We were made to feel that the villa was for our exclusive enjoyment. They are genuinely great people and it was very difficult saying goodbye at the end of the week.

We found plenty of things to do in the local area – some lovely restaurants, nice days out (a particular favourite was the local river) but in the main we wanted to stay around La Toscane soaking up the relaxing ambience and the odd game of ping pong.

As you can tell, we loved it and are looking forward to returning in 2016.
