Outstanding accommodation for Provence lovers
We had a fantastic holiday break at La Toscane. The apartment is absolutely delightful, spacious, well laid out, well equipped, clean and well maintained, and designed for comfort. It is part of a larger villa but is very private. The villa itself is absolutely stunning and has a large heated pool and barbecue area in a walled garden area that sits in several acres of woodland that are also part of the property.
Correns is a typical provencal village, set in beautiful countryside surrounded by vineyards in the valleys between pine and oak crested hills. Nearby is the larger town of Cotignac which sits under a cliff, with some of the older properties actually built into the cliff-side. The Villa is actually on the Vieux Chemin de Cotignac, which makes for a fantastic 8km walk to Cotignac for lunch. The countryside along the walk takes you through woods with views to a nearby mountain, Gros Bessillon, and then into a valley passing olive groves and vineyards, before climbing again into picturesque Cotignac where there are restaurants and bars, and a thriving market on Tuesday mornings.
Peter and Margaret, La Toscane's owners, are the most hospitable of hosts, and made us feel very welcome and ensured we wanted for nothing. If you love Provence as much as we do, we'd recommend La Toscane as a great place to stay.
A 5 star experience
La Toscane is an impressive Tuscan style stone villa in a magnificent setting above the village of Correns, a charming hamlet with most of the basic shops, cafes and restaurants needed for a stay in this beautiful area of Provence. Correns is close to many market towns and local attractions - details on the website.
Just a caveat if you are planning to drive down - the typically Provencal narrow access road to the villa is not suitable for low slung sports cars or camper vans!
We stayed in the self contained luxurious ground floor apartment, but larger groups have a superb range of ensuite bedrooms and facilities to choose from in the large house (which is very suitable for children as well).
Outside is a gorgeous pool and a galleried summer kitchen and dining table complete with huge Weber BBQ - this really is First Class and the description on the website does not do real justice to the actual experience.
Peter and Margaret complete the package by being helpful and gracious hosts and I can honestly give this house the highest recommendation. If you're planning a trip to Provence, do yourself a favour and book La Toscane, you won't regret it.
The beach resorts of St Tropez and Saint-Raphael are only an hour's drive away.
