The house is a modern villa in an elevated position built in 2006. It has a large sitting/dining room, a separate fitted kitchen, separate utility room and 3 bedrooms, each with an en-suite shower room or bathroom. It comfortably sleeps 6 in 2 double beds and 2 singles. All floors are tiled. The large partly covered terrace extends along the front of the villa and the end overlooking the pool.
There is a large tiled area for sunbathing around the 10m. x 5m. heated salt-water pool (not overlooked by neighbours), a pool-house with w.c., barbecue (gas provided) and 6 sun-loungers with mattresses. There is parking for several cars within the gates.
We are a retired English/French couple from Buckinghamshire living here permanently since 2006. While you're here we will live on site in separate accommodation. You will have sole use of the pool which we will need access to once a day for maintenance, at a time to be agreed.
Colin Williamson purchased this villa in 2006
We chose this area for the blue skies and because it's in the heart of beautiful Provencal scenery. It's midway between the coast and the Gorges du Verdon, with easy access to many attractive Provencal villages. We chose this plot for the views and had our villa built in 2006. The A8 motorway, 20 minutes away, takes you from one end of Provence to the other.
One acre plot, no close neighbours. The pool is completely private and for your use only. We are on site in separate accommodation to maintain the pool once a day, at a time to be agreed, and to deal with any problems. We know the area well and are happy to share our knowledge, if required.
5 minute drive to Draguignan with dozens of restaurants and cafés, and all amenities.
We have just returned home from a lovely holiday staying for a week at this house. Everything is well presented and the pool is pristine. There are lovely touches in the house with everything you need at hand.
Marguerite and Colin are a lovely couple who are very welcoming and are at hand if any help is required.
I would definitely recommend this property
We arrived to a lovely welcome from Colin and Marguerite who remained the perfect hosts. The Villa was everything we had hoped for and more! Spotlessly clean and with everything we could possibly need over our stay. The kitchen and utility from a practical point of view, were a great asset. A real home from home holiday.
The views are breathtaking over Draguignan itself, yet private around the villa and pool. The pool was maintained by Colin on a daily basis to a very high standard, our 4 children made excellent use of all the inflatables provided, while we made use of the pool furniture!
The location itself is central to all of the attractions of Provence. We flew to Nice and visited Toulon, Saint Tropez, Monaco, St Maxime, Gorges du Verdon as well as numerous mountain Villages. A hire car is a must!
We would thoroughly recommend this property and holiday to anyone considering this region of France. A real family favourite and would love to return!
We stayed her with friends for 2 weeks at the beginning of September everything about the property was wonderful. Colin and Marguerite were the perfect hosts, there for us if we needed them but ensured that we had the place to ourselves and encouraged us to treat the place as our home. The facilities in the accommodation were brilliant, stocked cupboards, comfortable beds, plenty of space to relax and everything was spotlessly clean. The pool area was lovely, lots of space with sunbeds, umbrellas and pool inflatables, all maintained daily to the same high standard by Colin.The views from the property were fantastic looking out to sea, whilst the property position ensured seclusion and privacy. One of the best holidays we have ever had and a place we will definately be going back to. Thank you Colin and Marguerite for a wonderful holiday, a perfect stay in a fab location.
We had a brilliant holiday here with friends, staying for 2 weeks at the beginning of Sepember. Everything about the villa is perfect: spotlessly clean, every comfort thought of and catered for, fabulous views and perfect hosts who have found the ideal balance between being attentive and welcoming whilst making you feel as though this wonderful place is yours for the holiday. It is definatley the best place we have ever stayed in and we will be back for sure. Many thanks to Colin and Marguerite for looking after us so well. Dawn and Mark
We had a lovely week here in July with our 8 year old daughter. The villa was immaculate, with everything you could think of and a few things you hadn't like shampoo and spare beach towels for the beach. Beautifully decorated with lots of cute little quirky bits and pieces. The owners, Colin and Margarite live in an apartment downstairs and were the perfect hosts, there if you wanted a chat or needed a lemon for a gin and tonic, but also keen to ensure we had the place to ourselves. Beautiful views, a lovely salt water pool and plenty of inflatables! We'll be back next year...
We could not have asked for a more welcoming home for our friends and ourselves to holiday together. Excellent situation from which to explore the area. Thank you Colin and Marguerite.
