MAGNIFICENT VIEW WITH A POOL NEAR AIX-EN-PROVENCE.

Aix-En-Provence Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 4 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

You will find in La Calisanne everything you may be searching in Provence : the sun, the quietness, the sound of the cicadas, the freshness of a pool and above all, the light and the nature.

To understand the magic of La Calisanne, just read what one of our guest wrote :

'The house could not be more perfect, it has been beautifully designed and we have loved every minute here. My son and husband both play piano and the house has been filled with music. I have enjoyed strolling around the garden and also the views of the Bessillon hills that change by the hour. It is a little piece of heaven.' Sandra P., London.

A FANTASTIC LOCATION

The immediate surroundings are in the heart of nature (vineyards, hills, forests, scrubland) along a no exit road. Here, you may feel at the end of the world… only 3 minutes from the village of Bras, 35 minutes from the elegant Aix-en-Provence and 10 minutes only fromSaint-Maximin and its pittoresque market.

A LUXURIOUS CONTEMPORARY HOUSE

La Calissane is a traditional “Provencal mas” outside and a ECO-friendly luxurious contemporary house inside. Totally refurbished in 2009, the house has been furnished with love, offering you the state-of-the-art of comfort and amenities : a swimming pool biologically eppurated (without chlorine), air conditioning in every room (powered by heat pumps). Each of the 4 bedroom comes with a private en suite complete bathroom or shower bathroom with design tubs and faucets. The walls in polished concrete, the ceramic or wooden floors give them a very cosy and contemporary atmosphere. You will also enjoy high speed internet, satellite TV with international channels and home cinema. For the gourmets, the kitchen is equipped with everything they can dream.

PLENTY OF THINGS TO DO

You will start the day after a fresh, relaxing and absolutely silent night. The sunshine illuminates the house. Open the windows and have your breakfast on the terrace, listening only to the birds. Then you may choose to go for a swim in our infinity swimming pool. You will appreciate the softness of the water chlorine-free.

Or you may decide to go the village of Bras and buy some bread, fresh vegetables from local producers, newspaper, meat and everything you may need. On Wednesday you will experience the famous typical provençal market of Saint-Maximin facing the XI th century Basilique. You may visit the rests of Sainte-Marie-Madeleine, yes, the one of the book, in the crypt. Or if you are there at the end of July, you will have the unique opportunity to participate to the procession : Marie-Madeleine is convoyed in the streets of the town followed by the habitants singing in provençal... a unique, quite impressive experience.

On other days you may spend hours walking in the beautiful streets of Aix-en-Provence and visit its museums, boutiques or enjoy the terraces of the Cours Mirabeau. This attractive and refined city is really like a small Paris.

You may also like to visit numerous vineyards around Bras and Saint-Maximin and taste the famous Coteaux Varois. Or go to the beach at Cassis, Hyères or Saint-Tropez. Or kayaking in the Gorges du Verdon. Or play golf at Nans-les-pins. Or go to Marseille, its Vieux-Port and Calanques and taste the bouillabaisse. All of this, less than one hour drive.

Plenty of our guests feel so good in the house and its 5.600 SQM garden that they are 'stuck' here by the incredibly zen atmosphere. For those who play and those who like to listen, the grand piano will provide you magic nights.

My husband and I falled in love with the place for the view, the nature and the absolute quietness. We built the house in 2009 and refurbished it toroughly. For us, every day here is a delight.

Francoise Lerusse purchased this villa in 2009

Because nowhere in the world (and we travel a lot) we found such a view and such a zen micro-climate not far from a town.

Located in one of the most authentic countrysides of the Var, this contemporary ultra-luxury house facing an amazing landscape offers an exceptional quietness. All this, some minutes only from Aix and all the famous centers of interest in Provence.

La Calisanne is carbon free and ECO friendly.

AN AMERICAN LADY

  • 5 of 5
A gorgeously serene home in a quiet, well-maintained area of Provence, set among olive trees and lavender gardens. We especially appreciated the disappearing edge pool from which we enjoyed vineyard views, the many outside sitting and eating areas, as well as the lovely modern home itself with great beds, a well appointed kitchen and up to date bathrooms. Especially appreciated was the video and the booklets of information on the house that were most helpful. We visited several of the restaurants suggested in the area, spending a memorial birthday at an Alain Ducasse restaurant very close by. One drawback - and this might not be a drawback for everyone - is that the home is quite a distance from any of the tourist sites.

THE PERFECT SOUTHER FRANCE VACATION HOME

  • 5 of 5
We were very fortunate to stay at La Calisanne from August 3 to August 23, 2013 with our two children aged 6 and 6 months. The house is about 1 to 1.5kms outside of the little town of Bras – we found the house close enough to have access to the café, boulangerie and farmer’s market but far enough from the town to have quiet and seclusion. We found day trips (Saint Tropez, St. Remy, Aix, etc.) very easy from this central location in the south of France. All the other small medieval and contemporary towns are only a short drive away (15-20 minutes).

The house itself sits on top of a hill and overlooks olive groves and vineyards directly below and mountains out on the horizon – to say that the views from the house are beautiful is an understatement. The house itself is a masterpiece as the owners have literally thought of everything in terms of conveniences and comfort and checked in with us on a regular basis to ensure that all was okay and we were enjoying our stay. Although the home has every modern amenity and feature, it still retains a rustic character and farmhouse feel. The home is spotlessly clean and very well maintained. Our favorite feature was the infinity pool which is salt water and overlooks the mountain range to the east. We were in the pool everyday as well as some nights (the pool and backyard are well lit).

I would recommend La Calisanne without reservation to anyone seeking a fun, relaxing and enjoyable family vacation and a place to call home in the south of France.

GREAT PLACE TO UNWIND, RELAX, AND REFLECT!!

  • 5 of 5
Our family has travelled and stayed in an assortment of beautiful homes, from castles to villas, all over the world...some lived up to the hype and some did not....this one was defiantly not a disappointment!!! This executive home boasts a wonderful mix of traditional and modern architecture that has been tastefully blended to create and achieve a charming and inviting setting for the discriminating traveller. Apart from being modern, clean, well appointed and very private, the location is unprecedented!! The views from the infinity pool are extraordinary and worth the price of admission. Dealing with the owners and their representative was done in a professional and seamless manner without a glitch to be had. We are very glad to have made the decision to stay at "La Calisanne" and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a little piece of heaven in the south of France.

PERFECTION IN PROVENCE

  • 5 of 5
This was a wonderful modern home/villa just 35 minutes from Aix-En-Provence (in Bas, Fr) with all the amenities to enhance your visit. This residence is in the mountains providing fantastic views beyond the eco friendly infinity pool. The complete kitchen including outdoor BBQ grill gave us the option to cook at home although we enjoyed most of our meals out. The outdoor lighting was great too allowing even more outdoor time. Rooms were spacious and air conditioned too if needed. And even a large screen TV with two cable providers (one predominantly in English) so you could stay current with the latest world news. Francoise, the owner was most helpful (and spoke English) in assisting with all our Q&A. A car is an absolute must here but note that driving on single lane roads is not for the timid.
