A stay in this picture-perfect Provençal residence is a step back in time with its gorgeous pink façade and pretty green shutters. Close to the market town of Draguignan, not far from the glistening French Riviera, Bastide Rose will bring such joy to everyone with its glorious gardens, heated swimming pool, private tennis court and idyllic terraces for al-fresco aperitifs and dining under the stars.

The historic bastide dates back to the 19th century and offers elegant living for up to 10 guests across the main villa and adjoining annexe. There’s a sense of warmth across its interiors with its inviting lounge, handsome library and traditional kitchen-diner alongside three delightful king-size doubles, each with their own en suite. At the very top of the house, a relaxing lounge and games room sits alongside a twin and shower room under the eaves. It’s such a lovely home for families with its many games and toys; equally a group of friends will appreciate the ample space and character.

A fifth bedroom can be found as part of an annexed guest house, alongside its own living-dining area and kitchen – on one side doors open up to a large upper terrace overlooking the garden whilst on the other side you’ll find a small amphitheatre, such a unique spot for a glass of wine.

Outside, across the five acres of parkland on various levels, the swimming pool features a pretty covered terrace and there is a private tennis court with rackets for guests to use. Challenge loved ones to a game of boules, youngsters will adore the play area whilst there are so many picturesque spots to seek solitude, perhaps by the summer roses or trickling fountain – scents and sounds so typical of Provence.

Experience the charm of market day in Draguignan, an attractive town with tree-lined boulevards and an old quarter with medieval lanes. Lorgues and Flayosc are two other Provençal gems close by whilst there are also wineries and vineyards to visit including the well-regarded Château de Berne.

Drive north towards the extraordinary beauty of Lac de Sainte-Croix in the Parc Naturel Régional du Verdon or stay closer to home and canoe along the Argens river near Vidauban. Then there’s the chestnut and oak forests of the Maures mountains and perched villages perfect for a leisurely lunch out.

The splendour of the Côte d'Azur can also be reached in half an hour whether spending the day relaxing on the beach at Sainte-Maxime or exploring the elegant seaside resorts of Fréjus and Saint-Raphaël. A little further afield, soak up the glamour in Saint-Tropez or experience the allure of the French Riviera in Cannes, just an hours drive through this captivating part of southern France.

In the Var department of southern France, Bastide Rose is set in five acres of terraced grounds backed by woodland. Yet despite the rural feeling of your surroundings, the home is located just on the edge of the Provençal town of Draguignan.

You’re even closer to the heart of a traditional village just south of Draguignan, around 2km by car, with a boulangerie, a couple of restaurants and a pretty square with a fountain – a delightful place for a morning coffee or leisurely lunch out. Even closer, just over a kilometre away, is a commercial centre with an excellent hypermarket.

The town of Draguignan itself is around 4km by car. It’s a large town with a range of amenities as well as grand tree-lined 19th century boulevards. The old quarter is a warren of narrow lanes, picturesque squares and fountains. Visit on a Wednesday and Saturday morning to experience the Provençal market selling all sorts of local delights such as honey, olive oil, cheese and a range of seasonal fruit and vegetables.

Market-lovers should also head to the charming small town of Lorgues (14km) on a Tuesday morning with its traditional market, one of the largest in the Dracénie region – it’s also close to the Michelin starred restaurant, Chez Bruno, and the renowned vineyards and winery of Château de Berne.

Nearby Flayosc (9km) is another Provençal gem of this region whilst Vidauban (16km) is known for its wine production and enjoys a picturesque setting near the Argens river, an ideal spot for fishing, kayaking and canoeing.

Adventure lovers will also appreciate amazing hikes around Sillans-la-Cascade and its waterfalls or head to the incredible Parc Naturel Régional du Verdon – Lac de Sainte-Croix is just over an hour away.

Then there’s the enchanting landscapes of the Maures mountains with chestnut and oak forests, vineyards, olive groves and perched villages such as La Garde-Freinet and Le Plan-de-la-Tour, both just over half an hour by car.

Heading towards the French Riviera, the relaxed seaside resort of Sainte Maxime is 31km away with its sandy beaches looking out over the Gulf of Saint-Tropez. You could also spend the day in Saint-Tropez itself, about an hour by car or hop on a ferry from Sainte-Maxime to avoid the summer traffic.

The elegant Côte d'Azur towns of Fréjus and Saint-Raphaël, both around 30km away, are also ideally placed for a day by the sea with plenty of attractions for all ages as well as historic sights. Continue onwards towards the Massif de l’Esterel’s Plage d’Agay.

Even Cannes (63km) can be visited in around an hour by car with the charming old town of Antibes (70km) and the stunning Cap d’Antibes peninsula just a little further.

Region

The Provençal way of life is one that’s deeply tempting for anyone who’s been feeling the need to get away from it all. This is a place where the Mediterranean weather turns fields of corn and lavender into picture-perfect backdrops, where you can sip your locally bought wine and enjoy the landscapes before heading out and tackling them head-on with a range of great activities for families, groups of friends and adventurous foodies. Better yet, our range of villas in Provence and chateaux and holiday homes in the Côte d’Azur make the perfect base to explore this enchanting region!

There are many great outdoor adventures to be had in the region of Dracénie and beyond. In the summer months drive to the Base Nature De La Dracénie near Vidauban for trampolines, a playground, water play and an inflatable waterpark. Also close by is Provence Aventure, a tree-top adventure centre with trails for a number of ages as well as canoeing and kayaking along the Argens river.

There are also horse-riding opportunities nearby, some lovely family cycling trails such as La Vigne à Vélo and lots of picturesque walks and hikes suitable for a variety of abilities. You are also close to the incredible nature and outdoor activities of the Parc Naturel Régional du Verdon with Lac de Sainte-Croix around an hour away.

For a day on the beach or trying out some new watersports, head to Sainte Maxime’s sandy shores or drive further towards Saint Tropez’ Plage de Pampelonne. Historic Fréjus and elegant Saint-Raphaël are also easily reached with their grand beaches, boat trips and plenty of family attractions for everyone.

  • A wonderful week

    Posted by Christine on 14/12/2021

    The house and its beautiful and well maintained garden were the perfect fit for us. We played tennis a lot, loved to swim and enjoyed the evening dinners on the terrace. The beautiful kitchen is perfectly equipped – I loved the oven. The outdoor barbecue helped us having some lovely dinners.
    The very nice caretaker of the house was easy to reach and always willing to help – if needed. Even a little problem with the outdoor electricity was not really a problem though it was quickly fixed – on a Sunday!!!
    We really had a wonderful stay. Thanks for a wonderful week.
