About Colin Williamson
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
Why Colin Williamson chose Draguignan
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.
What makes this Villa unique
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.

Excellent accommodation withperfect hosts in a quiet location
Excellent accommodation in a quiet location giving excellent views of the med coast. Our hosts, Colin and Marguerite were perfect hosts, a well stocked kitchen allows for self catering at a high standard and simple things such as towels and shower gel ensure all needs are catered for. This is the second time we have stayed at this accommodation and I cannot recommend it enough, you will not be diasappointed.
Thank you Janet for your 5-star review. It was a pleasure to see you and your family again and, for the first time, your lovely mum. You were the perfect guests.
A wonderful tranquil escape from the normal world. This was our third visit and Colin and Marguerite go out of their way to make sure everything is perfect. We could not ask for more. Thank you.
Thank you Caroline for a 5-star review. We really enjoy seeing you and your friendly family. Looking forward to seeing you all again next year.
Outstanding property, very clean, well equipped, owners helpful.
We've just returned from a week in this lovely villa, it was very well equipped, with lots of nice and useful touches. The villa was lovely and clean, with fantastic views over Draguignan and beyond from the extensive terraces. The pool was the nicest we've experienced, with several inflatables to use, brilliant for kids and adults! Colin and Marguerite we're welcoming hosts, who were available if needed.
Thank you very much, Sue and Kevin, for the 5-star review. We're very pleased you enjoyed your holiday. It was a pleasure to meet your family and we hope to see you all again.
Lovely house and Pool
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're very pleased you found so much to your liking. You were the perfect guests.
Fantastic Property, Lovely Welcome, Great Holiday!
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're extremely pleased that you and your family enjoyed themselves here. For us, that's what it's all about! It was a pleasure to meet you and your lovely family.
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.
Thank you, Janet, for this glowing review. We are grateful to Chris for informing us about the many VTT cycle routes locally. He and Mark must have been out on their bikes every day. We look forward to seeing you again.
