Overview

Pool Ideal for Kids Walk to Village

Within a short walk of one of France’s most beautiful medieval villages, Le Sud offers a magical setting overlooking the French Riviera landscapes.
This is a truly beautiful villa which has retained its charming character yet is full of the warmth of a comfortable modern home. Light flows through the spacious living room with French windows opening up to the terrace that surrounds the front of the house whilst the country kitchen-diner leads out to a wonderful covered dining patio. Two pretty bedrooms with their own bathrooms can be found on the ground floor whilst a lovely tiled staircase winds itself up to the top floor with its double bedroom and ensuite shower room. 

Sit back on your terrace and enjoy a glass of rosé from a local vineyard as you gaze out at the hills and the local village. There’s a summer kitchen where you can prepare a barbecue using the very best ingredients you’ve picked up from local markets, enjoyed en famille around the al-fresco dining table. Just a few steps away is the glorious and sunny swimming pool with sun loungers perfectly positioned facing the valley views. The garden is spacious and spread over 3 levels. It offers children plenty of room to play. Also there is a petanque/boules terrain on the middle garden terrace under the shade of a huge oak tree, with a deck, table and chairs. Enjoy an evening game of this traditional French game with all the family!

Indeed, it will be hard to leave this inviting abode yet there is so much to explore in this captivating part of the French Riviera. One of France’s ‘Plus Beaux Villages’ is about a 20-minute walk away where you can wander around the pretty cobbled lanes, admiring the scenery surrounding you before seeking shade in one of the restaurant terraces under the plane trees. 

Other local villages to discover, many with delightful weekly markets, include Caillan with its flower-filled lanes, Montauroux perched in the hills and Fayence with its world-famous flying school. Grasse, known for its perfume heritage and idyllic setting, is just forty minutes away and within an hour you can be soaking up the sun on some of the Côte d'Azur’s finest beaches such as Cannes or Saint-Raphaël.

Not to mention wonderful hikes through the forests, wine-tasting in outstanding vineyards and golf in prestigious locations nearby. Whether visiting the coast or the incredible hinterland, this part of the French Riviera offers tranquillity and exploration in equal measures.

What you should know…

  • The last 75m of the approach to the villa has some narrow turns but it’s certainly possible for a standard car to manage them
  • The beautiful terraced gardens feature a lot of steps and some low walls in places

Le Sud is set on a hillside in the beautiful countryside with valley views of the surrounding the French Riviera landscapes and towards the local village. In the eastern Var department, it’s close to some of the region’s most idyllic ‘perched’ villages as well as being under an hour to the Côte d'Azur beaches of Cannes, Fréjus and Sainte-Maxime.

The local village is a 20-minute walk away, downhill (or you may prefer the five-minute drive and park at the bottom of the village). It’s known to be one of France’s ‘Plus Beaux Villages’ and is filled with narrow, cobbled lanes and lovely restaurants with terraces shaded by the beautiful plane trees. Discover the ancient fountains, historical buildings and amazing views from this charming medieval village.

Other dreamy villages to explore include Fayence with its charming streets, beautiful cafés plus a weekly Farmer’s market selling all sorts of local delights, Callian with its pretty winding streets and flower-filled staircases and lovely Montauroux, perched in the hills, with its street market on a Tuesday. Indeed, every day you will be able to find a local village hosting a market where you can truly soak up the Provençal ambience of this breath-taking region.

Not forgetting the stunning town of Grasse, 40 minutes away, known for its perfume heritage and fields of lavender. Drive further towards the rugged interior and enjoy spectacular views of the whole riviera from Gourdon (47km), swim from the rocks in Gorges du Loup (46km) or head to wonderful Caussols (48km) you will find an observatory in this stuning location. For a truly spectacular day out, head to the Gorges du Verdon (84km), one of France’s greatest ‘must see wonders’.

Golf-lovers can tee-off at the world-renowned Terre Blanche Golf around 12km away or drive a little further to the magnificent Saint Endréol Golf course. For a truly special experience there is a Gliding school in nearby Fayence, voted by Conde Nast Traveller to be the best gliding in the world!

Whilst in the French Riviera, why not sample some of the local wines in one of the many vineyards surrounding the local village and region. Tours and tastings are available, as are fine-dining experiences at some.

Water-lovers must head to Lac de Saint Cassien, about 45-minutes away, where you can hire pedaloes, rowing boats, try out windsurfing or simply swim off the waters edge.

For a touch of glamour, why not head to Saint-Tropez (68km) for a memorable day trip, maybe also stopping off at Pampelonne beach with its world-famous beach clubs.

The fashionable city of Cannes (48km) is also a fantastic place to visit during your stay. Take a walk along the city promenade in Cannes, La Croisette, as you soak up the glitz and glamour that surrounds you.

Reviews

  • Stunning views, super stylish and large pool!

    Posted by Christian on 14/08/2018

    Very comfy beds and it is great that one of the bedrooms is on the second floor, for a bit of privacy for when you are with two couples.

  • We really enjoyed staying in this villa!

    Posted by Vanessa on 23/07/2018

    It is equipped with everything you need, the lay-out is comfortable, and the garden and its views are beautiful. The older kids enjoyed exploring the garden down below, while we could enjoy our coffee on the veranda overlooking the village. The cot and mosquito net were very convenient for our youngest.

  • Wonderful villa with a lovely homey feel to it!

    Posted by Helen on 16/07/2018

    The peace and quiet of the location was very welcome, but it was also very convenient to be able to have a meal in the beautiful, picturesque old town near the very photogenic fountain. We made day trips to Nice, Cannes, Ste Maxime, and to the canyon and the mountains - all within 1-1.5hr drive!
