Barbara Levett purchased this villa in 2006
We only had to walk into the garden and see the
panaramic views and potential of the villa to decide to buy it. We spent over a year renovating and
installing a new pool - worth every effort.
As we say in the description the house is so conveniently situated for both peace and stunning views yet close to the village with its restaurants and shops so there is no sense of isolation. Just as important, It is easy to reach the coast, on relatively quiet roads even in summer or many of the other holiday facilities in the area.

"Stunning views & accommodation in friendly village"
We have just returned from a week long holiday at this great apartment. We all had an amazing time at this great villa with beautiful scenery, a friendly local village within walking distance from villa & everything we wanted in the villa itself. We made use of the BBQ every evening with dinner outside on the terrace. The owners were very welcoming & helped us with any queries we had straightaway. Would highly recommend this villa for a chilled week in the sun in a beautifully clean & quiet accommodation.
Agree with other reviews, the spec of the house is very good. Air con in the bedrooms made a big difference. The pool is excellent with a good aspect. Plenty of sun loungers and places in the shade. Valentin and Barbara were great hosts both with local information and introduced me to the local wine co-op which is also excellent. They kindly posted my daughters shoes that we had left behind. Collobrieres is a classic Provence town, nice atmosphere, there are some good restaurants where the food is local and great value. There were numerous festivals during our visit. Area is very good for road biking btw, very popular. In summary, a perfect base to explore the area or laze by the pool. Easily accommodates eight.
My extended family and I have recently returned from a most wonderful week at Barbara and Valentijn's apartment in Collobrieres. Having enjoyed two nights in Cannes en-route we were pleasantly surprised at how easily accessible the village of Collobrieres was, only a short hour and an half down the motorway and having arrived early for lunch in the village, our hosts graciously allowed us to gain access an hour earlier than promised, enabling an immediate (and welcome) cool off in the pool for our two children. The property was fantastic with a well-equipped kitchen which facilitated preparation of evening meals which were enjoyed by all under the wisteria on a large and cool terraced dining area. The swimming pool surpassed any we had in a holiday rental before and proved very popular with both sunbathing parents and aquatic children. Again as with the pool, the bedroom accommodation were excellent with the most comfortable bed, and the addition of a welcome pack of toiletries and bathrobes made it feel more like a five star hotel than a holiday let. This level of comfort was replicated in the separate studio which allowed grandparents some additional space during the stay. A decent wifi signal was apparent throughout the stay which proved a welcome distraction for the children in the evening. The location worked well for us being only a half-hour to an hour away from towns such as Hryeres, Toulon and Saint Tropez, and the five minute walk to the village was often rewarded with a game of Pétanque and a cool beer.
While we had not anticipated our hosts to be staying on site while we holidaying, this proved not to be an issue as it had no impact on the privacy of the apartment or facilities such as the pool / outdoor areas, and the polite interaction and local knowledge provided only served to assist with our enjoyment of the area. Thanks again to both for the wonderful holiday and we look forward to returning again soon.
We just spent 2 weeks at this villa - 4 adults and 4 children. The villa is high spec and everything is provided (even beach towels). The local village is really friendly with plenty of bars/restaurants to choose from. Only downside is 20 minute drive to nearest big supermarket although there is a corner shop in the village for essentials. We will definitely go back at some point. Weather was 30c everyday and the kids loved the pool. A great base to explore southern France.
This was our second visit to Barbara and Valentijn's apartment in Collobriers and we enjoyed it just as much as when we stayed in 2014. The property is in a perfect location, just a 5 minute walk down to the village which is just how we imagine a village in Provence to be, with a small square that has cafe's and restaurants along with the small local shops for bread, meat and supplies. The apartment itself is on the ground floor with lots of terrace space and plenty of outdoor furniture. We travelled as a couple so there was more than enough space for us, the kitchen is great with every item you could need and the bedrooms are beautifully set out, even a small welcome pack of toiletries, and great air conditioning. Barbara and Valentijn go over and above to make sure the property feels luxurious and welcoming. The pool is wonderful, perfectly clean and a very relaxing space. We would highly recommend a visit! Many thanks to you both for making us feel so welcome again.

We spent a week in a very nice, clean and well equipped house with a swimming pool in the beautiful village of Collobrieres in Provence. Barbara and Valentijn welcomed us with to their beautiful house and were very helpful in planning our vacation and what to see in the vicinity of the village. The pool was wonderful, clean and neat as well as the whole house and the yard surrounding it. The house was very well equipped and had all modern facilities, even english TV channels which was very nice during a couple of rainy days we had. Collobrieres, the small village the house is situated in, is only a few minute walk away from the house with nice café's and restaurants. On Saturdays there is a market at the main square. A trip to the beautiful beaches is only 30 minutes a way.
We can very well recommend a holiday in Barbara and Valentijn's beautiful property in the geourgeous village of Collobrieres.
Amazing and well equipped house overlooking a charming Provence village close to the beaches. From the moment we arrived the owners Barbara and Valentijn could not have been more helpful or do more to help us and our two young daughters. The pool was wonderful, regularly cleaned and the pool side furniture and parasols were excellent. We rented the whole house and it is ideal for those wanting a holiday with Grandparents or with another family as there is so much room on both floors. The kitchens are well equipped with all modern facilities and the bedrooms spacious and extremely comfortable. The village is a short walk down the hill and there are plenty of restaurants and cafes to choose from. The beaches of St Tropez, St Maxime and Hyeres are only a short drive away although it was very difficult to drag yourself away from the pool and shady terrace area. Cannot recommend this property enough and Barbara and Valentijn made this holiday one of our best as a family. Will be coming back !
Although the village is in a peaceful location many facilites are nearby, such as theme parks, and white water rafting, kayacking and water sports. Special interest holidays:
Cycling (bikes can be hired) and walking are very popular activities. The countryside is very varied.
It is a unique unspoiled environment and although close to the coast the local roads are in general untroubled by the heavy traffic found on coastal routes in summer.
The beaches are only 25/30 minutes away and are popular for all kinds of sailing, boat trips and swimming. The village has tennis courts.
There are several festivals which are very popular (see Collobrieres website) and
a market every Thursday and Sunday, with local specialities on sale.
Beaches are 25/30 minutes car drive away with a marina.
All kinds of boating, trips and long sandy beaches, some private with restaurants in summer

The ancient and charming village of Collobrieres is a five to ten minute walk from the house depending on whether you are walking up or downhill!
The location offers a varied choice of activity and type of holiday.
Just relax around the pool and wander into the village for a meal or eat on the terrace overlooking the panoramic view. Otherwise the beaches, with all the facilities you could need, are less than
half an hour away. Walking and cycling are favourite pastimes in the area all year round. The climate is of course famously
wonderful and pleasantly warm through Spring and Autumn.
There are a number of good restaurants and bars to enjoy, and the village butcher prepares a daily special which saves time in
the kitchen and allows more time around the pool.
There are shops providing all everyday needs and there is a
doctor, dentist and pharmacist if needed.
The village is very lively and certainly not just a summer vacation location with colourful festivals which occur throughout the year, especially in October. Also known for its crafts with several art galleries and craft shops in the centre, it is the “Capital” of the chestnut growing area and is famous for its produce, which adds to the variety of crafts and produce available.
