This is a villa where everything around you constantly reminds you that you are in the heart of Provence. The view, the smell, the sense..
Villa Vue is an original provincial villa with charm, character, beautiful views and a private swimming pool just 40 min from the famous sandy beaches of the Cote D'Azur. It is totally private and secluded - no other property overlooks the Provence villa, the terrace or the pool. The villa has several lovely sunny and shadow filled terraces and are placed in a large olive grove in several levels. The villa is placed in walking distance from the village - the bakery takes 5 min reach. The villa has a big living room with couches and dining space and an open kitchen. Everything is traditional provencial style. There is a large airconditioned masterbedroom on the first floor and downstairs there are two bedrooms - one with two single beds, and one with a queen size bed. There is two separate bathrooms and an outdoor douche.The villa is non smoking.
The area: The area is popular for rambling with many paths through pine forests and olive groves. Biking is also a big hit - on mountainbike or on racer. France's Grand Canyon, the Gorges de Verdon is 1 h drive. It's nearly half a mile deep and plenty of view points make for a fabulous afternoon out. Lac St Cassien for all watersports is only 25 min drive away. The larger Lac St Croix (also good for watersports) is 45 min away at the mouth of the Gorges de Verdon.
Sandy beaches at Frejus and St Maxime 40 min drive. You can discover and enjoy many pretty medieval perched villages such as Tour Tour and Chateaudouble in the hills nearby.
The idea: We want you to have a wonderful holiday. We provide cotton linen for the beds, cotton towels for all the guests, all necessary kitchen utilities - the basics at least, soap for you and the dishwasher, and the pool is taken care of by the poolman - just to mention a few things. We have a wonderful and very helpful french caretaker couple, who meets you when you arrive and hands over the keys etc.
This was a great holiday to remember! We were travelling with our two daughters (10 & 14) and my mother in-law, and the house was excellent with three bedrooms and plenty of space indoors and on one of the charming terrasses all facing Claviers village. Everything in the house had a personal touch - good quality and we felt very welcome. Hope to get back next year.
Our family of four had a very pleasant stay in Claviers. We found the property as just as described and the photos very accurate. The owner responded to both telephone and email queries and provided useful information.
The property was clean and well-maintained and the pool was cleaned every other day during our stay, when the caretakers were available if required. Appliances are very good quality (inc gas BBQ) and the beds very comfortable! Ample resources provided inc toilet rolls, soap, washing powder, dishwasher tabs etc.
Best things about the property:
the stunning views over Claviers, from the terrace, property windows and pool - lovely to sit on the terrace in the evening and watch the sunset;
the pool, which the children made great use of;
privacy - the property, gardens and pool are very private;
proximity to the village - a short walk (few minutes) to the village.
Claviers is a charming, small village with a (helpful) tourism information office, boulangerie (superb croissants), excellent pizzeria (inc takeaway), 2 other restaurants and a general store.
Beyond the village, we enjoyed exploring the area including: swimming in Lac de St Cassien from pedalloes with slides; walking in the stunning Gorges du Verdon on the Sentier du Pecheur; a day at the beach (St. Maxime); and le Village des Tortues (tortoise conservation centre).
We would recommend this property
It was like being in one of those French movies taking place in Provence. The house and the terrasses had the most charming view overlooking the small village of Claviers, the garden was filled with olive trees, the house was tastefully decorated and very well kept. And the French couple helped and gave excellent advice. We will be back!
Vi har haft en pragtfuld uge i Villa Vue midt i den vidunderlige provencalske natur. Huset er meget veludstyret og i det gode vejr nød vi poolen - når vi ikke var på udflugter til de små byer rundt omkring. Huset kan nok især anbefales til +50.ere og er et ideelt sted at tilbringe en uge sammen med et godt vennepar.
At sidde om aftenen på terrassen med et godt glad rosé i hånden og nyde udsigten over Claviers og landskabet, ja det er simpelthen livet. Markedet i Callas om lørdagen kan særligt anbefales og besøg også¨i samme by olivenolieproducenten Moulin de Callas - som sælger meget andet fra Provence end oliven.
This was indeed a lovely vacation. The house is furnished with everything - good quality in kitchenware and lots of silverware etc. The villa itself is spacious, sunny, light, tastfully furnished, clean, comfortable and well kept. In total it feels
like a home. The house is located very close to the village - which has a weekly market that travels between the neighbouring villages. Furthermore the house has a great view and lots of privacy. It sits in the middle of an former olive orchard with it's own boulecourt and serveral terrasses. The pool is lovely and completely private.
Tak for en dejlig ferie. Villa Vue passer til sit navn - men en utrolig udsigt fra alle terrasser, poolen og det smukke hus. Vi var 4 personer og der var god plads i den smukke stue, i det store masterbedroom ovenpå og de to gæsteværelser nedenunder. Alt var rent og pænt og med fantastisk gode senge! Og tak til det franske ægtepar som hjalp med alt - fra pool til informationer om området. Vores tip: tag til Sellians og lej rideheste!
