Pin this Villa
Simplicity, open space, stone and light adorn this lovely renovated historic property which was a sheep farm in its early days. It has since become a perfectly comfortable property meant for spending unforgettable vacations.

The vast manicured garden, tended all year long by a couple of gardeners is gorgeous, and surrounded by lavender fields and olive groves.

The pool is beautiful and totally secured with an iron fence, a fireplace in the pool house creates ambiance in evenings. The private tennis court is a treat for avid or recreational players. It is even possible to arrive by helicopter - landing on the helipad.

Lake of Carcès is just 20 minutes’ drive, as well as lakes on the Verdon River whose gorges are famous in Europe. Enjoy unforgettable hiking, canoeing, kayaking, riding or cycling.

The Saint Tropez Gulf and Riviera beaches are definitely worth visiting, located only 1 hour from the property.

Thank you for your note. We LOVED the house. We thought the house looked exactly as it does on the website. We thought the space was ample for two families with active kids. The pool was lovely even with the cooler weather. Beatrice was very helpful and accommodating. She's an asset for the property. We hope to rent this house or another from your company in the next year. We will recommend it to others.
