This new Provençal property is situated on the edge of the beautiful village of Cotignac. The stunning villa is tastefully furnished throughout and has two king size double and two twin single rooms with a south facing heated swimming pool, all set in over one acre of grounds. The pool area is well equipped with comfortable sun loungers, parasols, gas barbecue and a covered terrace with traditional Provençal furniture for alfresco dinning.

The house has a well equipped kitchen with range cooker and American style fridge freezer for the all important supply of iced water and in the utility room a washing machine and tumble dryer are available for your use.

Surrounding Area: Cotignac is a vibrant, friendly village with many shops, cafés, bars and restaurants. On Tuesdays a large Provençal market dominates the main Square. The village lies 45 mins to 1 hour between the beautiful beaches of the French Riviera and the Gorges du Verdon, making it an ideal base to explore from. The nearest beaches to reach are around Ste Maxime and Frejus (50mins) both with Aquaparks for the children. Drive south across the Maures hills to reach Grimaud, Port Grimaud and St Tropez (1hr). North, the unspoilt Lac St Croix (45mins) is a must, with swimming and many water sports on its turquoise water. Further on the dramatic Gorges du Verdon (50mins), France's own Grand Canyon, has canoeing, rafting and the most spectacular scenery. Nearby places to visit include the Abbey du Thoronet, the waterfall at Sillans-la-Cascade, the Chateau at Entrecasteaux and the many picturesque villages such as Villecroze and Toutour 'the village in the sky'.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The villa was great. Larger in life than in the photos, a great pool (much appreciated in the hot afternoons). I don’t think that the photos do it justice.

Lovely villa for a relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

A lovely peaceful location with views towards the distant mountains. The villa is very well equipped and comfortable and the pool area is great. You will need a car to get to local shops and restaurants. Nearest villages Cotignac and Entrecasteaux are very pretty and well worth a visit.

Night skies at the villa are very dark if you enjoy a bit of star gazing too.

Fantastic property!

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic place, we all (2 x adults, 2 x 15 year olds, 1 x 16 year old, 1 x 9 year old) had a wonderful holiday staying at this villa for two weeks. We fell in love with Cotignac, what a beautiful town with such a friendly community feel to it. We managed lots of activities all very close to the villa: numerous visits to the La Nartelle restaurants near St Maxime, Lac St Croix and the gorge de Verdon, Lorgue market, St Tropez, canoeing at Carces, water park, wine tasting at local vineyards and the Cotignac Rose festival.

The property is clean, spacious and well laid out with all the facilities you need, it even has a Nespresso machine for fresh coffee in the morning. The kids loved the pool and the grounds and there is an electric gate for security.

The owners provided an excellent service, and were also very understanding when we managed to break the pool clips during our stay. There is a large information pack in the villa giving details of all local attractions, restaurants etc

All in all it is a great place to stay and we would highly recommend it!

Twice as good........

  • 5 of 5

Hi Andrew,

Starting to get ready to travel to Lake Garda on Saturday, after another brilliant week at your villa. I have to say sometimes you don't appreciate how fantastic the villa is first time around but this week gave us the opportunity to really enjoy it more and enough to say our best villa ever from 'seasoned villa holidaymakers' for the past 15 yrs- so really well done!!!! Love Cotignac too.

A real home away from home with everything maticiulsly thought of!

We will be back for our third visit!!

Thank you- Paul, Tara and Harry

Wonderful week in Provence Verte

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous week staying at Villa d'Andriou. Beautifully appointed, it was a wonderful base to relax and enjoy exploring Provence Verte. Set in stunning countryside, we enjoyed some great days out as well as perfect evenings eating out on the terrace watching the sun disappear behind the distant hills.

Fantastic villa in beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

Had the most wonderful week staying at this Villa. From the second we entered the villa we knew we had made the right decision. Beautiful location and very well equipped and modern villa. The pool is fantastic and the outdoor seating areas were great. Cotignac is not far away and is a beautiful little village with a great traditional market.

Highly recommend this villa.

The medieval village of Cotignac in the Var is an idyllic rural location which is also is close to major centres such as Aix-en-Provence, Nice, Marseille and St. Tropez.

With beautiful views this well appointed villa is an ideal holiday location set in tranquil countryside - a perfect location to relax and enjoy the beauty of Provence or visit the many attractions in the surrounding area.

It is very popular with tourists having retained all of its local charm and boasting a wealth of history and natural beauty. Situated at the foot of a magnificent tuff rock the lively village is well served by restaurants and shops set around the tree lined square.
