Great holiday!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from 2 weeks in this lovely house where we had a super holiday. The view is fantastic, whether from the house overlooking the wooded hills or from the pool of the pretty village of Callas we never tired of just looking out. The house was very clean and well equipped. Callas itself is small but within an easy 10 minute walk or 2 minute bike ride to get bread on a morning or for a meal out at night. The 4 restaurants are OK but nothing special but were nice enough and convenient. Lots of local tracks and paths for walks and bike rides although it was too hot to venture too seriously into the hills. We really enjoyed the nearby Gorge de Pennefort for refreshing dips into the pools. The house is also very conveniently situated to venture further afield - easy to get to the coast or Gorges du Verdon , local lakes or one of the many local villages. Jean-Paul & Myriam were excellent hosts who were friendly and helpful with local knowledge and tips and were very tolerant and helpful in compensating for our almost non existent French. We would certainly recommend the property. Merci beaucoup Jean-Paul & Myriam!

If you want to see Provence, this is your place

  • 5 of 5

If you want the real deal, we can highly recommend this house as your base for visiting Provence. The location is perfect with plenty of attractions within 90 minutes drive - classic hill-top villages (Seillans, Tourrettes, Tourtour, Chateaudouble), wineries, Gorges du Verdon for hiking and the Riviera (St Tropez, Antibes). Add to this, the village of Callas which is a cosy 5 minute walk away with a few local restaurants, a friendly tabac, corner deli and boulangerie - this is genuine France without the hype or tourists. We stayed for three weeks and weren't ready to leave - we loved it !

Jeanpaul was an excellent host - with a warm welcome, good spoken English and plenty of advice on what to do in the area. The house is the old family home with a very relaxed pool area, great patio (with views southwards and to the village centre) and a good living area indoors for the off-season traveller. The bed was a comfortable double (not a given in France) and a reasonable shower / bathroom.

Thanks to Jeanpaul and Myriam for a great stay - we will return when we need another fix of our favourite bit of Provence.

A wonderful week

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in this lovely house on the outskirts of Callas with our three children (15, 12 and 9). The views of Callas and the surrounding area are beautiful. The village of Callas was easily reached on foot in 10 minutes or by car in 2 minutes. We visited the boulangerie there every day. There are many picturesque towns nearby that are easily reached by car. We visited Bargemon several times and the drive to nearby Seillans, where we had a wonderful meal in the town square at La Gloire de Mon Pere, was a great adventure. The trip to Gorges to Verdun took us through some beautiful countryside, and the Gorges itself is truly spectacular. We recommend hiring a pedalo to explore inside the gorge.

We made great use of the pool, the barbecue and the well-equipped kitchen. The week we stayed was very hot, but the house remained cool. Jean-Paul and Myriam are fantastic hosts, full of helpful suggestions and tips. We appreciated our warm welcome and the comforts of their home. We will definitely return if we are lucky enough to have another holiday in Provence.

Une superbe vue à 180°

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons passé une délicieuse semaine fin mai 2017. Une vue à 180° dont on ne se lasse pas, la piscine a température idéale, un calme absolu, idéalement située pour les amoureux de l'arrière pays varois. Rien a dire de particulier sur la maison, l'état est parfait. Les propriétaires sont très gentils et très discrets. Bref, nous reviendrons, c'est sûr.
