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 (late July to late August) when we only let the entire property for up to 11 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 scenic 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 tranquil and 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.

On the first floor there is a good size double bedroom, a spacious twin bedroom and a washroom/WC. Most of the villa rooms have oak beamed ceilings.

The apartment comprises a spacious living room with a curtained off archway through to a twin bedroom, a separate double bedroom with king size bed, a fully equipped 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 gardens and terraced olive grove are for the use of all guests and offer splendid views from all points over the surrounding hills and the villages of Claviers and Bargemon. Both the villa and apartment also have their own private terrace and garden space. A large 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. The property and grounds are South facing and enjoy day long sunshine throughout the year.
