About this property

Beautiful Manor House - Pool & Large Gated Garden. This villa is in a rural setting.

Le Petit Chateau - Private Heated Pool & Gated Gardens

The house is on a quiet country road close to a river and is nestled in a secure private gated 5,807metre squared garden.

This exquisite provincial property is in the Var region of Provence, renowned for its vineyards and beautiful towns and villages. The house is a 10 minute walk from the local sleepy town, renowned for its pottery and lovely weekly markets, perfect for cheese tasting and enjoying the French Provincial way of life.

The house and gardens have been completely renovated while in keeping with the original charm of a French Provincial manor house. On the ground floor there is an entrance hall, wc and elevator providing full disabled access to the first floor. The living room and modern kitchen then open onto a spacious dining area and lounge. A small original door leads into a charming wine cellar.

A lovely open and winding staircase leads you to the upper levels of the house. On the first floor there are 3 double bedrooms, two with en suite facilities, one single bedroom and a fourth bathroom. There is also a large quiet balcony area that has views over the surrounding gardens, pool and fields, ideal to catch the morning sun.

The second floor then offers a very large master bedroom, 2 separate double bedrooms, a small bathroom and a separate sauna and shower facility room.

The spacious gardens are beautifully landscaped with a lovely private garden with sculptured fountain. Tall cyprus trees, olive, pomegranate, fig and walnut trees define a large and spacious private garden with scented flowers and beautiful views of the surrounding hills.

At the rear of the house there is a large tiled veranda with views of the pool; perfect for daytime and evening alfresco dining, offering lovely views of the garden. Then below there is a beautiful pool with a stylish summer kitchen that includes a wc, shower, bbq and clay pizza oven.

While the house is an approximately 45 minutes drive from the sea and the popular seaside resort of St.Tropez, there are also some beautiful local small towns to visit and explore, including Salernes, Lorgues, Entrecasteaux and Carces to name but a few.

A must see, a 20 minute drive away is also the amazing Gorge de Verdon, Frances grand canyon, offering amazing views and a range of water sports including white water rafting and other outdoor activities.

Great Villa with plenty of space and very secure grounds which is great for little ones. Liam was very helpful and attentive as we had a few issues with the pool. Only disappointment was only one oven out of the two worked which made life a little harder when cooking for 14 people. The third floor was very hot and if I had a wishlist I'd add air-conditioning to the villa to make it more comfortable at night. We'd definitely go back though.

A beautiful property in a beautiful part of France. Everything lived up to expectations, and some plumbing problems were sorted quickly and efficiently by the helpful and friendly local owner.
The neighbours are quite sensitive to noise after 10pm (ie conversation around the pool) and you will have to decamp to a Gazebo in the corner of the garden after 10pm if talking in anything above whispers, let alone music...understandable I suppose, since they live with it all year.
Overall a great holiday, that I would highly recommend
