The house met our expectations and more!

  • 4 of 5

We had great time in this gorgeous house in Les Arcs-sur-Argens. It was clean, organized, and comfortable! The Mediaeval village is very fascinating. The house has everything you need. You don't need to go to the gym, just walk down to the village patisserie every morning. Loved it!

Chic and comfortable respite in Provence

  • 5 of 5

We had a delightful 3 week sojourn in this wonderful home, using it as a base to explore Provence and the Cote d'Azur. There is no end of treasures to be found in the region, from the Gorges du Verdon and nearby Lac St. Croix to the towns of Tourtours and St. Paul de Vence. So much is within reach, from vineyards to fields of lavender to beaches. Les Arcs is low key and friendly, crowned by its medieval heart, where this home discreetly sits at the top of the village's small hill. If you object to walking from where your car is parked or can't manage hills, this may not be the home for you. We didn't mind. We loved its rustic chic decor, comfortable beds, stylish (and well-equipped) kitchen and inviting courtyards. There is appealing art on the walls; everything speaks of taste and quality. We also found James and his local caretakers to be responsive, kind and friendly when any small question arose.

Simply the best!

  • 5 of 5

We did a lot of research to find the perfect home base for a two week stay in the south of France and we definitely found it. The home has been creatively and comfortably restored, carefully and thoughtfully equipped. We lacked for nothing the entire stay. The peacefulness of the hilltop location was the ultimate in relaxation. A walk each morning through the cobbled walkways for fresh croissants, enjoyed every sunny morning on the front walled terrace, was the best way to start a day! Most evening meals, after full days of touring and markets, were enjoyed on the terrace off the kitchen with it's lovely fountain. Great location for visiting the Côte d'Azur's beautiful coastal towns as well as medieval hilltop villages. We even travelled as far as Avignon for a day trip. The owners were great to deal with and their home is as described,a "Luminous Oasis". Hope to visit again and again.

Dream house in marvelous small medieval village

  • 5 of 5

This spotless house becomes a home as soon as you open the door. It is the perfect balance between modern American style and romantic European flair.

The white subtil decor is simply beautiful. Every detail is refined and charming: the lovely French textiles that adorn windows, the comfortable pillows, the lush towels and the "old school" revolving soaps, all add a special touch. After buying fresh produce at local producers' markets, we enjoyed cooking in the well equiped kitchen and eating "al fresco". Walking the narrow medieval streets is fabulous. We also had the chance to experience medieval times during the village's festival in July. Located close to mediterrean beaches and wineries. Fabulous experience. Contact with owners is a joy. I highly recommend this rental.

At the top of a medieval stone village

  • 5 of 5

This is a delightful, well designed and equipped attached house right on a small square at the very top of a restored village above the town of Les Arcs. The commercial section of the town is a short walk (but back is all uphill) through captivating alleys and winding stairs. The house has both an interior court and front, private garden patio; both are delightful, and sitting there is very enjoyable. The owners are extremely helpful and cordial, and the property was very well maintained. Couple that with an outstanding location to explore the western Var, and I would gladly stay again.

The perfect French holiday

  • 5 of 5

The property surpassed all our expectations and we had a magical holiday in Les Arcs. What better way to enjoy this charming location than staying in the heart of the medieval village in this beautiful home. We fell in love with the village during a previous holiday and this property, beautifully equipped and with a wonderful layout that perfectly suited the needs of our family, enabled us to enjoy the delights of the perfect French holiday - great food and wine, French markets, fantastic weather, beautiful beaches and the spectacular and varied surrounding countryside. To pretend it was ours even just for two weeks was fantastic! We would recommend it without hesitation and hope to return one day.
