About the property

Villa in Vidauban, Near Lorgues / St Tropez, Cote d'Azur

Large modern villa with all amenities, but in traditional style and rustic character. An internal area of 300 square meters, and a garden of over 3500 square meters with a solar heated private pool, fitted with child safety alarm. Having every amenity, from all channels satellite TV and DVD, to a private fully fitted English style "Pub", the villa is set in rural surroundings, but is just ten minutes walk to the local village. Auto route A8 junction nine kilometres away gives easy access to Nice and Aix-en-Provence.

About Christian Hansen

My wife (Norwegian) and I (Danish) live in Norway. My wife is an economist and work in company called Aker Solution and I'm a retired engineer from a French oil company (Total -platforms in the North Sea), who got bored with retirement and I'm now back to work with a company called Petrolink. Our kids (3) have moved out and we enjoy our lives with a mix of work, gardening, restoring old furnitures, sports and our beautiful house in France.

Christian Hansen purchased this villa in 2005

Why Christian Hansen chose Vidauban

Since we both have worked for a French company, we travelled a lot in France and found Provence as the ultimate treat. When we finally decided to buy a house down there it was compromise between me and my wife, where I wanted to get close to nature and she close to a village. When we saw the house it fulfilled all our dreams: 800m from the nice village of Vidauban, a fantastic view over the mountains, 30 -40 min. drive from St. Tropez/St. Maxime and a lot of freetime pleasures close (golf, riding, fishing, canoeing, site seeing etc. - not to forget the best rosé wines in the world!)

What makes this villa unique

Besides the location and the great view, the house is very spacious, so even with 14 persons you never feel crowded (we have suddently become very popular with our family & friends!). We have sun on the terrasse/pool area all day and in the evening the bar room (almost a genuine pub!) with pool table and dart ++ provides for a lot of fun.

The kitchen is newly renovated with high class equipment and in the pool house we have installed a heavy weight grill.

The house is located in a quiet and safe villa area with a remotely controlled main gate w/video and lights.

The pool (and baby pool) has a solar heating system and is working on a salt electrolysis system to avoid the usual chlorine treatment.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Steven and Annik de Foer (01.08 - 15.08.2009)

We had a wonderful time, everyone was enthusiastic about the villa (and the great weather of course). Who knows, we might contact you again for a holiday in the future (if you'll still have us). We'll recommend it to friends & family members. Thank you very much.

Sissel Austheim w/family (25.07 - 01.08.2009)

I had never dared to hope for such a place to exist, so we are extremely pleased. We were at the most 15 persons, all in different age-groups incl. a baby of 3 months and we all were very comfortable in the villa. There was room enough for everybody around the outside dining table for meals as well as in the pool area enjoying leisure time. With 35 degrees the whole week we spent a lot of time there. We just love the rose wine, served with ice cubes! Thank you!

Nora Hillestad w/family (04.07 - 18.07.2009)

We have had a fantastic vacation! We will recommend the villa to friends and relatives. Thank you.

Magnifique et grande maison

  • 5 of 5

Magnifique maison au calme dans les hauteurs de Vidauban. Nous avons passé une superbe semaine là-bas à 4 familles (8 adultes, 7 enfants). La maison est équipée pour tout (lit bébé, barbecue, frigo américain, etc...). Le propriétaire ainsi que son agent sur place sont très sympathique et répondent rapidement aux différentes questions. La piscine chauffée est très grande et petit bassin est disponible pour les petits. La propriétés est énorme et il n'y a pas de problème pour parquer les voitures.

Boulangerie et supermarché à 5'; possibilité de partir courir dans la nature.

Je conseille vivement cette location.
