Claviers Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa in Claviers, Nr. Bargemon, Provence - Set In An Olive Grove With Glorious Views

Bastidon des Oliviers is a large, split level property comprising a luxurious three bedroom villa with an independent two bedroom apartment on the lower level. Both dwellings are fully self-contained with private terrace space and separate entrances so both offer complete privacy to our guests. The large pool and terrace area around it are shared. For combined lets, the villa and apartment can inter-connect and are ideal for both families or groups of friends. The villa and apartment can be let separately except in peak season (mid July to end August) when we only let the entire property for up to 10 people.

The property is situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty, less than ten minutes walk from the splendid hilltop village of Claviers, near Bargemon (voted “one of the most beautiful villages in France”). Looking in one direction you can see the village of Claviers and in the other, Bargemon. Our land is totally private with no overlooking houses and a quiet path leads from it to the village. Claviers is a lovely quiet village, virtually unchanged from it's medieval past and yet has all the conveniences you may require and a choice of bars and restaurants. Bargemon is a much larger village with a beautiful shaded square with numerous shops, bars and restaurants.

Bastidon des Oliviers is set amongst terraced olive groves in over an acre of land on a hillside with a spectacular infinity pool, enjoying glorious views over the surrounding countryside. A fabulous secluded location, yet within easy access of the Côte d’Azur resorts, which can be quickly reached via the A8 motorway (20 minutes away). It is a 45 minute drive to Cannes or to the Gorges du Verdon, 1 hour to Nice airport or St. Tropez, and 35 minutes to the beaches at St. Raphael and Fréjus.

Bastidon des Oliviers comprises a luxurious three bedroom villa with an independent two bedroom apartment on the lower level. Both have ground floor entrances as the property is split level and the apartment is located below and to one side of the villa.

The main villa comprises, on the ground floor, a large L-shaped living and dining room with French doors onto the terrace, a fully fitted oak kitchen, a spacious twin bedroom, very large bathroom with bath (with shower fitting) and washbasin, a separate shower room and an individual WC. On the first floor there is a good size double bedroom, another spacious twin bedroom and a washroom/WC. Most of the villa rooms have oak beamed ceilings.

The ground floor opens onto a very large terrace with glorious views over the countryside and the upstairs benefits from it's own covered terrace with a view to Claviers village.

The apartment comprises a spacious living room with a curtained off archway through to a twin bedroom, a separate double bedroom, a kitchen fitted with oak units and a shower room with washbasin and WC. The large utility room is shared with the villa occupants.

The property is fitted throughout to a high standard and fully equipped with modern appliances including wifi, satellite TV (French, English and other international channels), DVD, video, iPod dock and CD player.

About Jill McQueen

We (Jill and Ray) bought Les Chenes (property Ref FR433) as our permanent residence in 1994. We have been renting the property out as a holiday home since 2002 when we moved into another house which we had built near Seillans. We bought property ref FR328 in 1998 with a view to renting it out as a rental home.

We live permanently near Seillans and actively manage our properties ourselves so they are always maintained to a high standard and we are on hand to solve any problems that may arise during the course of the rental season. When renting holiday homes for ourselves we have found that it can be a big advantage to have the owners on hand.

Jill McQueen purchased this villa in 1998

Why Jill McQueen chose Draguignan region

We fell in love with the area as soon as we first explored it and bought our first house near Montauroux village in 1994 as the area is very beautiful, quieter than the coastal resorts and yet has easy access to the Cote d'Azur. It is just over half an hour's drive to the coast at St Raphael/Frejus.

We bought Bastidon des Oliviers in 1998 with a view to renting it to holidaymakers. The main reason for our choice was the location of the villa within walking distance of the village of Claviers and the fabulous situation. The property is located in an acre and a half of terraced olive grove which has beautiful views over the surrounding hills and the villages of Claviers and Bargemon.

What makes this villa unique

The property is conveniently located for access to the village and yet is very secluded and quiet, which is not always the case for houses located within walking distance to the village.

There are amazing views from both the villa and the apartment, which are quite separate, and the infinity pool is particularly spectacular. Looking in one direction you can see the village of Claviers and in the other, Bargemon. Our land is totally private with no overlooking houses and a quiet path leads from it to the village.

Claviers is a lovely quiet village, virtually unchanged from it's medieval past and yet has all the conveniences you may require and a choice of bars and restaurants. Bargemon is a much larger village with a beautiful shaded square with numerous bars and restaurants

Fabulous location

  • 5 of 5

We really loved our time at Bastidon des Oliviers villa.

The accommodation, facilities, pool and setting were all excellent. We particularly appreciated the peace and quiet of the location and the proximity to Claviers and Bargemon - as well as the many other hilltop villages. We would definitely recommend both the villa and area and certainly hope to be back.

Lovely Villa in great setting

  • 5 of 5

We had a really enjoyable stay at the villa. The setting is superb, with lovely views all round and the pool is delightful. The villa itself is very comfortable, extremely well equipped and furnished and very well looked after. The owners have gone to a lot of trouble to provide information on how everything works as well as the local area and we very much appreciated the fact that they were on hand if needed. We would definitely return as the area is also very beautiful and has so much to offer.

Lovely

  • 4 of 5

Spent a lovely week in Claviers. Ideal location to explore the many villages and not too far from the coast. Villa was very comfortable, loads of space inside and out. Owners on hand when we arrived to show us around and welcome us. The kitchen and bathrooms could do with a little updating, but that is only a little comment. Would highly recommend to others.

Brilliant vacation

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I enjoyed one of our best ever holidays staying at the villa accommodation at Bastidon des Oliviers last summer. For us it ticked all the boxes for a perfect vacation. The villa was well located between two delightful villages – Clavier and Bargemon that provided an excellent choice of restaurants and comestibles – the morning stroll to get the bread and fruit in Clavier was a joy in itself. The villa was comfortable, excellently maintained and well equipped. We all particularly enjoyed the privacy offered and the views from the infinity pool. A brilliant holiday, we’ll be back for two weeks next time. SSJ Topsham, Devon.

Coast/Beach:

The villa is also within easy access of the Cote d’Azur resorts. It is a 45 minute drive to Cannes, 1 hour to Nice airport or St. Tropez, and 35 minutes to St. Raphael and Frejus. The impressive coast road from La Napoule to St. Raphael is full of dramatic scenery backed by the red, craggy mountains of the Esterel National Park. It is here you will find our nearest coastal beaches (35-40 minutes drive) with a choice of sheltered coves or glorious long sandy bays.

Travel:

A car is essential. It is one hour to Nice airport, one hour to Toulon and just over one and a half hours to Marseille.

The high speed TGV train service departing from London Waterloo takes seven hours to reach Marseille, with one quick change in Lille. You can then carry on to a local station such as Les Arcs or Draguignan.

From Calais and the channel ports, it is about a 10 hour journey to the villa, best route being the motorway.

Distances:

Claviers is located in a beautiful area of The Var (the “département”), boasting some of the finest scenery Provence has to offer. There are numerous interesting nearby villages. Amongst the nearest are Bargemon (5 mins), Callas (10 mins), and Seillans (15 mins). For swimming, watersports or fishing, Lake St. Cassien is just a short drive away or you can visit the impressive Lac de St. Croix at the entrance to the Gorges du Verdon (1 hour). It is also easy to reach the coastal resorts (40 mins).

Further Details:

Claviers village (10 mins walk) offers four restaurants, a bar, small supermarket, baker and Post Office as well as a tourist office. There is free wi-fi in the tourist office and in the bar. In Bargemon there are numerous restaurants, two bars, three takeaways, two small supermarkets plus all the other local shops and amenities you would expect such as a bank and a pharmacy. There is a larger supermarket in Seillans (10-15 mins drive), as well as local markets in the villages. Within a 20 minute drive are several large supermarkets and numerous other shops.

Most outdoor activities are available locally including hiking, bike hire, climbing, swimming, fishing and watersports on the nearby lake, canyoning in the local gorges, white water rafting in the Gorges du Verdon, river fishing in local streams, gliding at the Fayence club, golf at Tourrettes de Fayence and St Endreol. There are also numerous cultural activities in the main coastal towns, the perfume factory tours in Grasse, as well as a host of children's amusements including waterparks, fairgrounds, zoos and so on.

Notes:
Notes on accommodation: All rooms have electric heaters for winter lets and there is also an open fire in the villa living room. Cooling fans and anti-mosquito devices are provided for the summer (though there aren't generally many mosquitoes being in the hills and away from water.) We provide sheets and continental quilts (and/or blankets) for all the beds, together with one bath towel and one hand towel per person. The linen is changed once a week and the accommodation will be thoroughly cleaned prior to arrival with a briefer weekly clean for bookings of two weeks or more. A cot and high chair are also available. The garden is maintained and the pool is cleaned twice weekly (more if necessary). We are on hand should any problems occur and we manage the property ourselves. Domestic pets are accepted at both properties, within reason and with our prior approval. In general we would accept up to 2 dogs in the entire property. The villa and apartment can be let separately except in peak season. Outside: The property is set in its own terraced olive grove in a peaceful location, offering splendid views from all points over the surrounding hills and the villages of Claviers and Bargemon. The villa and grounds are South facing and enjoy maximum day long sunshine throughout the year. A lovely silk tree provides natural shade for summer dining on the terrace in front of the villa, while apartment guests enjoy their own private covered patio. Both dining areas have gas barbecues and the poolside is fully equipped with garden furniture and parasols. The large overflow pool (11m x 4m), pool terrace and extensive private gardens are available for the enjoyment of all guests. There is an attractive balustrade at each side of the pool and the pool benefits from a child safety alarm. The main access path to the pool from the villa is also gated. A quiet road leads directly from the top of the grounds to Claviers village. It is about a 10 minute walk along a very quiet and pleasant road.
