Our air conditioned villa is standing in the first row of a private supervised residential resort with a breathtaking view of the 15-mile Valcros Valley overlooking the Valcros Golf Course. It is sitting on the first Hills of the Massif des Maures between Hyères (9 mi.) and St.Tropez (30 mi.) and 6 miles from the Mediterranean Sea Beaches, and 5 miles from the City of La Londe les Maures, where all services are available, supermarkets, hair dressers, dry cleaning, drug store,... The Master Bedroom, the Living Room and the Den open on the Terrace where Rosé Wine, or other aperitifs, are enjoyed and Meals are served... or cooked on the Provençal Bar-B-Q. The fenced and gated Private Garden opens on a pedestrian walk that leads to the Resort Swimming Pool, Tennis Courts and Pétanque Court (Provençal Lawn Bowling, sort of), a 5-min walk. A rollout awning over the picnic table provides shade if you prefer the Terrace to the shade of Mimosas and Eucalyptus Trees growing on the lot. The City offers all services: bakeries, supermarkets, butchers, restaurants, dry cleaners, hair dressers, drug stores, etc.

Only a few miles away are beautiful beaches on the Mediterranean Sea where food and drinks are available during the High Season. The open air Markets in the area are worth visiting, especially the Saturday market in and around the Old City of Hyères... 12th Century. The Vineyards of Provence are worth visiting and sampling.
Casinos are available in Hyères, Le Lavandou, St.Tropez and, of course, in Monte Carlo, 2 hours away.
Having lived in Eastern Canada all my life, no wonder I picked this beautiful French Riviera home to retire during the cold winter months and this for the past 21 years. The -30°C (-22°F) winter temperatures are not really acceptable for retired individuals therefore I chose a +20°C (+72°F) climate to enjoy my retirement at the most. Why not ?
Peter A. Davidson purchased this villa in 1994
Although you are amongst people, you feel all by yourself facing this 25-km valley, facing west, with it's cork producing oak tree valley all the way to Toulon and it's Mount Coudon.
The swimming pool , tennis courts and playground are only a 5-minute walk away on the footpath facing the Villa. But far enough that tennis ball impacts and bathing kids are not heard on the Terrace or in the air conditioned bedrooms. Sitting on the Terrace with the smell on Lavander, Eucalyptus, Rosemay, Thym, etc...is just a dream that you have to experience ! Don't forget to bring a good book as a complement !
This house was the nicest rental we've ever experienced - we immediately felt "at home". It's nicely decorated, well-equipped, well-maintained, is quiet & private & has a to-die for view! The layout of the house was ideal for 2 couples & the price was right. We would rent it again in a heartbeat & highly recommend it in every way.
The pictures and descriptions do not cover how lovely this place is! The villa is located a few km from a nice town that has great shopping and wonderful beaches. It is fully equipped with a fantastic kitchen (complete with spices and recipes), wifi, very comfortable beds, lots of bedding and towels, washer and dryer, two bathrooms, air conditioning, beautiful view, outdoor cooking & eating area, patio, lawn chairs, wood BBQ, CD's, TV's and plenty of space. The place was spotless and modern. We were there in summer when it was HOT, but there are black-out shades, an awning, air conditioners and a pool within a few minutes walk to keep you comfortable. We took day trips to St Tropez, Avignon and Monaco from this base using both car and trains. When we come again, we would skip the day trips and stay 2-3 weeks just near this place as there are many many wonderful beaches, wineries, restaurants, farmers fruit stands, trails, country roads, and islands to explore just within about a 12 km radius. There is always something going on, a movie, outdoor fair or market, street dance, beach festival etc. all summer. Our teens loved that they each had their own bed and room along with the wifi. I loved cooking in the well equipped kitchen, coffee & wine on that patio and I would recommend this place to families or anyone to stay. It was wonderful and I hope to return very soon to stay longer! All of my dealings with the Pierre the owner were pleasant. He was most helpful in communicating, sending me tips, keys, etc. and keeping in touch. The price for the villa is very reasonable for such a wonderful, clean, comfortable, well-equipped place. STAY HERE! You won't be sorry.
Nous avons passé une superbe semaine dans une villa située dans les montagnes près d'un petit village "La londe les maures" très accueillant.
En résumé, tout était adéquat et conforme aux descriptions fournies par le propriétaire qui soit dit en passant nous a fait parvenir une foule d'informations sur les points d'intérêt environnant. Nous y avons découvert des plages magnifiques et des gens très sympathiques.
The Villa is located at 43°10'29,46' N and 6°17'20,39' E on Google Earth. The Resort swimming pool and Tennis courts are at
43°10'29.76' N and 06°17'06.64' E.
Hope to hear from you soon.
Golf: An 18-hole Golf Course is available, in the Valley in front of the Terrace, 3 kilometers from the Villa.
