Keith and I have lived in the Var department of France for over 16 years. We love our villa but also love the mountains and in 2017 bought La Pommière - a delightful chalet in the Val d'Allos. Formerly teachers in the north east of England we now nurture our olive trees and our Mediterranean garden in the Var and spend as much time as we can enjoying the mountain air at La Pommière. Our family come over as often as they can enjoying the pool at Les Oliviers and outdoor sports at La Pommière
|Year property purchased||2017|
|Why this location?||We first saw La Pommière about 18 months before we bought it and fell completely in love with this stunning location. Set in 4000 m2 of gardens with 360 degree mountain views we were captivated by the chalet. This area is well known by the French but little known by the English - it is a whole year round activity valley - skiing in the winter along with many other winter sports - there is even an activity park in the neighbouring winter sports village of Allos. Walking, cycling, mountaineering, horseriding, canyonin, fishing in spring summer and autumn. Beautiful plants, fantastic autumn colours, delightful Alpine villages including the walled Medieval town of Colmars les Alpes. This really is paradise.|
|Unique benefits of property||Unusually set in a large landscaped and private garden this south west facing chalet has sunshine all day long even in the shortest days of winter - quite rare in the mountains. It is large and spacious sleeping 14 in 4/5 bedrooms with 4 bathrooms and 4 wc. The gateway leads directly onto a marked walking / cycling path. and just 1 km from the gateway is the fantastic Gorges de Saint Pierre - a majestic mountain walk.|
Stunning walk - not for the faint-hearted but much loved by serious walkers
Stunning walled town less than a 10 minute drive from the village
