About Inge Durand

In 1982 the whole family has decided to leave the busy PARIS and we have bought our lovely property the same year. Since several years a part of the family is back to Paris but our property in Peymeinade is still the meeting point for our family meetings.

Inge Durand purchased this villa in 1982

Why Inge Durand chose Peymeinade

We have choosen Peymeinade because of the nice, quiet area, the pretty hilly country side, not too far away from a bigger town, easy access to the beaches Cannes or Mandelieu as well as to the mountains within 30 minutes drive (only 5 km to Grasse, 16 km to Cannes, to Nice -Airport 35 km). There is also a big lake « Lac de Saint-Cassien » with water sport activities at the west side of Peymeinade, about 15 km far away. All these advantages have been important for our decision.

And... the possibility to walk to the center of the village up from the property. In former times our villa has been a farm house with wild land around for the production of olive oïl and cultuvating roses and jasmine for the perfumers in Grasse. We have enlarged and rénovated the property and are still loving it.

Our Holiday

Dear Inge

We all got home safely and everyone has said that the very much enjoyed staying in your beautiful house. It was great to have such a lovely garden and such a range of facilities. We thought the garden kitchen was a great asset and we eat all our meals on the tables next to it.

Every good wish

Excellent villa for a group of friends

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a wonderful week staying in this beautiful villa which was perfect for a group of friends. The villa itself was very clean, comfortable and extremely well equipped both indoors and outdoor kitchen and BBQ with everything we could possibly need for a weeks stay. The pool and outside seating areas were lovely and we thoroughly enjoyed winding down and relaxing by the pool after a day out, followed by eating outside in the evening.

The villa is very well positioned, being walking distance to the supermarket and to the small town of Peymeinade where there is a good selection of boulangeries for the early morning coffee and croissant! A little further afield, but not far there are many different, interesting places to visit including Grasse and Antibes which are easily reachable by car and train.

Inge the owner was always very helpful both during the holiday planning stage and whilst we were staying in the house ensuring we had everything we needed.

A fantastic holiday but a week wasn't long enough!

Exceptional large house

  • 5 of 5

We had wonderful 2 weeks at mas de l'origan. It is an ideal property for an extended family such as ours and easily accommodated 11 of us with much room to spare. The photos really don't do the house justice. It's location makes it perfect for relaxing (which we took full advantage of give the exceptional heat during our stay), but also for trips to beaches and villages in Provence,. It is the best equipped house we have ever rented - we would challenge anyone to find something that isn't provided in the kitchens, garden or house! Inge is more than helpful and most welcoming. A wonderful holiday in a special house.

Excellent choice for a large family

  • 5 of 5

We have spent a fabulous week in September enjoying the villa and its amenities. The house was great, very clean and well equipped, I would say even more luxurious than the description and photographs. The spacious grounds with different garden areas and 3 terraces with tables around the property is an excellent choice for large family groups.

The landscape with the wonderful olive trees and nice flowers incorporating the fenced magnificent always clean swimming pool was beautiful. Everybody loved the views to the hills and to the eagle nest village of Cabris. The fully equipped out door kitchen was a must, used every day, especially for breakfast and lunch with view to the pool just in front. The evenings we had dinner at the nice stone table area nearer to the villa entrance, a charming place, or we went out for dinner to good restaurants in walking distance in the village of Peymeinade.

The children enjoyed the games like badminton, bochia, even table tennis was available.

We had the best of times and hope we will have another opportunity to spend a next holiday at this wonderful estate. Also many thanks to the owner Inge. She has been a wonderfull host and we have very much appreciated her tips for discovering the area.

Family Holiday 2013

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at this superb Villa for my "special"birthday, our party consisted 10 people including our 4 grandchildren.

It was easily the best family holiday we have had, mainly due to the quality and facilities available.

It was beautifully appointed with enough bedrooms for us all, each complete with showers/baths or both.

The outside BBQ and kitchen was also great, and the fridges and dishwasher in the outside kitchen were very useful.

The swimming pool was brilliant, and was large enough to have a proper swim at just the right tempereture, after swimming we were able to step from pool and shower in the outside shower area, and the shower had hot water.

The children loved the pool and the outside table tennis, and we all played Boules

and Badminton every day.

The facilities were so good that we ate in most days, although there was plenty of information at the Villa describing local restaurants,and places places to visit, also supermarket within walking distance.

Nothing was too much trouble for the owner Inge, who was available should we have required any assistance.

Have already recommended this villa to our friends, it was brilliant, hope to return another year.

Family Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We spend 2 weeks with members of our families (13 people, plus a 3 month old baby) in this beautiful home..

The Renter from the word "Go" was ever so helpful with any aspect of our stay and travel. She worried about everybodies best privacy in the home and suggested which room in the house works best for each couple. She help with taxi arrangements from Nice to Peymeinade. She made sure the house was always clean and everything was in best working conditions. She even made an appointment for a doctor and accompanied us to the doctors office.

All in all the ownwer went out of her way to accomodate in all our needs

Thank you so much for everything.

The house was wonderful. The garden fabulous and the pool magnificent.

We each had our own spacious bedroom and private bathroom. The children had a large bedroom with room for a provide baby crib. The kitchen had all the appliances and plenty of dishes. A large dining table for all of us was there if we needed indoor dining. The nicely appointed living room had a large flatscreen TV and we enjoyed most of the soccer games during the European championship.

Free Satelite phone and Internet was also available.

Outdoor living was at it's best. The large pool was used consatntly during the hot hours of the day (we only had a sprinkle of rain on one day). The very spacious grounds allowed for games of bochia, badminton, etc, even table tennis was available. The fully eqiuiped our door kitchen was great to complement food preparation for the meat cooked on the charcoal BBQ. And the beer in the fridge was always cold.

The landscape with the wonderful Olive trees and nice flowers was beautiful.

Peymeinade is a good location to start day trips to the Cote Azur and into the interior. Most sites were rached with a 30 - 40 minute drive.

Grocery shopping and dinning was within walking distance.

We had the best of times and hope we will have another opportunity to spend a holiday at this wonderful estate.

as described and more

  • 5 of 5

my family just returned to the States from Mas D'Origan. the house and grounds are truly wonderful: lots of room, lots of comfort and lots of privacy among the various wings of the house. the pool and outdoor kitchen are lovely. everything is very well stocked. we were particularly concerned about how well the house would work with the two toddlers we brought with us. in fact, it worked extremely well. the pool is gated and alarmed. there are cribs in the house as well as high chairs. the grounds were fun for the babies, especially the exciting (to them) goldfish pond.

Inge, the owner, is a wonderful host. she did everything she could to make our stay comfortable. She's very professional, having managed properties in the area for years. Her English is excellent which was very helpful to me in particular.

I strongly recommend this house and would rent it again in a heartbeat.
