Guestbook comments from the manager

I can honestly say that my 50th Birthday Easter week holiday break was made all the better for the most pleasant surroundings at your villa. Every morning and evening; no comparison to any other location stayed at for an uplifting experience all round. Thank you!

A wonderful place of beauty and relaxation

  • 5 of 5

A group of friends recently spent a week at Villa Mathilde to celebrate a 40th birthday. It was a wonderful place to relax, socialize, and enjoy the beauty of Provence! The house itself was both beautiful and quite functional. The photos on the site are accurate but don't do justice to it (more beautiful in person). The rooms are spacious, nicely decorated and with the three floors there was both privacy and places to connect with the entire group.

Without venturing forth from the house itself, our group enjoyed leisurely meals at Villa Mathilde and especially enjoyed the grounds and the pool. The kitchen is very well-equipped and it was comfortable to cook for many people. We also enjoyed the outdoors grill on many occasions. The views from the three levels were stunning! The pool itself was a welcome way to cool off, relax while admiring the vistas, and finish a day of travel.

We loved going to the local town, Les Londes des Maures, for restaurants, morning pain au chocolat, and especially the market on Sunday! We spread out in smaller groups and traveled to many beautiful places along the coast and inland. There were so many other beautiful spots to see. . . . While this was fun, the best part of the trip was returning to Villa Mathilde!

Ian and Gillian were excellent hosts and the logistics of the trip worked beautifully. We highly recommend Villa Mathilde and would love to visit again!!

A dream for our family.

  • 5 of 5

We are a french family and we have lived 7 years in this region that we know very well. This year it is the second time we have rented this property and it is for us one of the best location we have ever been.

The house is perfectly maintained and we love the area, the landscape as well as the comfort and practicablity of the premises.

In one word, the pictures show the reality and there is no frustration when one discover the property itself.

We especially like the area because the sea is at 15 mn. by car without traffic and we have the choice between many beaches and neighbouring places.

The Golf of Valcros is at 5 mn. which is a very interesting golf course.

If you have a boat that you can put at Hyeres or La Londe, provided that you make a reservation early in the year, you will appreciate many places with sandy or rocky beaches from La Londe to the Lavandou or Toulon, with Brégançon, Giens, Cape Benat, Porquerolles and Port Cros Islands.

The owner is fair and reliable.

This house is a wonderfull place for vacation with family or friends.

Hilltop paradise

  • 5 of 5

Nestled into the hillside with ever-changing views across the valley to the sea and the Iles d'Or, Villa Mathilde is a gem. The villa is spacious and airy and no detail has been spared - from the formal living room to the well-equipped kitchen we have

rarely rented anywhere so well thought out or more beautifully presented. The lower level with it's own sitting room and terrace was much appreciated by the younger members of our party, as was the spacious pool terrace which meant everyone could have their "own space".

The nearby village of La Londe is a gem with a bustling Sunday market and Cedric Gola's unmissable restaurant - be sure to book a table early in your stay as you'll want to return. Bormes les Mimosas and Le Lavandou are equally charming with a wide range of restaurants and interesting boutiques to browse if

you can tear yourself away from the villa.

The owners are rightly proud of their beautiful villa and went to great lengths to ensure our stay was perfect. We look forward to returning to Villa Mathilde in the future.

Owner's Response: Nice to get positive feedback!...we have been featured in Maisons et Decors magazine this year and also on Cote Jardin on French TV3 this december...so the gardens are at last bearing the fruit of our dedicated and now somewhat famous garden designer, Jean baptiste Cavatore.

The best

  • 5 of 5

Is there a better villa in this area of the South of France? I would be amazed if there is. Everything was as described and the photos are very good. However seeing is believing: no picture can really do justice to the quality of the house, pool and its fantastic outlook. The golf course is nearby and you can actually see part of it from the huge terrace.

It is very nicely located for Toulon airport and great restaurants abound in the area. The fact that you are smack in the middle of Provencal wine country and have to pass a number of domaines to get to the house just adds to the appeal.

From the Owner

We created this breathtaking property having fallen in love with the stunning views one sunny January morning in 2003. The next 3 yrs were spent working with our architects to achieve the perfect balance in terms of leisure, dining and accommodation for up to 3 families spread over three seperate areas. Ideal for 10 people. The addition of a 5 person lift makes movement between the three floors easy. There is something for every generation from the snooker room with Denon sound system, a lower TV cinema room for DVDs with surround sound, large living room with Satellite TV/DVD for relaxation and fine dining area...kitchen and outdoor terraces, pool and pool deck.

This property is the ideal location for those who want to simply rest and take in the quiet and the views or to use as a base to tour this famous area. There is nearby golf, sailing, fishing, walking, cycling, tennis and many other opportunities to enjoy this small piece of paradise. Situated conveniently between the famous towns of Le Lavandou/Bormes les Mimosas and the historic town of Hyeres Les Palmiers is this lovely location in a valley paradise called Valcros set just back from the coastal strip at La Londe les Maures. Nearby are many 'Cru Classe' and Cotes de Provence Vineyards - beautiful beaches and Fort de Bregancon - the French Presidential Summer Palace.

St Tropez is a short 45 km drive away through tree lined hills and valleys.

Local restaurants, boulangeries and shops offer locally grown produce - and the Sunday market in La Londe is a must.

For those who are disabled or in a wheelchair, this property is ideal - with wide doors and a large lift which serves all 3 floors within the house. Access to all terraces on all floors also. We have had good feedback from guests with disabilities. We are happy to advise in more detail.

There is a passenger lift that operates between the 3 floors of the house and it is quite easy for the use of wheelchairs internally - although we have to point out that this property is located on a hillside with a steep drive access - we are happy to advise on suitability for disabled or very elderly guests. The swimming pool is a salt 'Eco friendly' type with little or no use of chlorine (except in an emergency by our pool contractors). Pool can be heated at an additional cost outside of high summer use - it also has an electric safety cover which also acts as a heat retainer. The Pool House has a large shower room, changing area, w/c and hand washing basins. There is also a room with a washing machine and dryer for pool towels.
