A dominating farm made into a comfortable holiday home with charm. It is quiet and secluded. It is authentic Provence,medieval villages, vinyards, long sandy beach nearby

The Space

It is Provence at his best , dominating a preserved valley of Bandol (website hidden) is secluded but still not isolated and 5 minutes from the motorway leading to Aix, Marseille, Lyon and Nice.
The new Mucem (Musee des cultures de l'Europe et de la Mediterrannee) in Marseille, European Capital of Culture 2013 ,is a must, Friday night , diner or watching a film on the terraces of fort St Jean are an amazing experience
La Cadiere d'Azur, le Castellet our villages and and our beach of Les Lecques are quiet andwarm.The calanques of Cassis nearby are a msut.
Aix en Provence is 40 minutes away, Marseille 35 minutes, La Cote d Azur is two hours away, we access the motorway in a few minutes form the house, therefore it is easy to explore the whole of Provence including Arles and La Camargue, Nimes , Avigon etc
In our house you will find plenty of Arts Books and guides for inspiring you.

We have taken on board the suggestions of our first guest Sarah and the house is ready for you prepared by Odette of Avenir Propre.
Please note that the swimming pool is only operated from May to October and the price is increased in high season.
The house:
•3 double bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms (bath and sink, )(one of which has air-conditioning) , two of the bedrooms acces both from the inside and from the outside, giving more independance to guests
•One large bedroom/living room on teh ground floor
•One dining-open plan kitchen with a lovely large cheminee living /dining room
•A large terrace in front of the house
•A little terrace next to one of the bedrooms
•A beautiful large swimming pool
•A large area of land in terraces overlooking a stunning valley.
You can even relax in the nude as it is so secluded

•Washing machine

•Car park

Please note there is only one loo separated from the bathrooms , this is a simple rustic house
The area:
Easy to reach the motorway entrance is a few minutes away but far enough for not creating any nuisance
•Overlooking a stunning valley
•Quiet and secluded
•1 mile away from the sea and the beautiful village of La Cadière d'Azur
•Perfect place for a holiday with family or friends in a very sunny and beautiful location.
•1 hour from Marseille airport
•3. hours from Paris by fast train every half hour, a train links Marseille to Sain Cyr the nearby local station every thirty minutes.
During high season we reserve the right to ask for a higher price .

No smoking outside please ,no barbecue

  • Wir haben 2 Wochen Familienurlaub - zu fünft mit Enkelkind (1 Jahr) - an diesem schönen Platz verbracht.
    Das Haus hat wirklich sehr viel Charme und mit der liebevollen Dekoration und den schönen Büchern und Bildbänden, eine besondere Atmosphäre.
    Der Garten ist sehr groß und wunderschön, riecht nach Kiefern und bietet viele Orte zum Entspannen.
    Die Terrasse lädt zum Pétanque spielen ein.
    Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt.
    Der Kontakt zu Alec und Cecil war gut und unkompliziert.
    Zu kritisieren ist lediglich, dass das Haus bei Anreise etwas sauberer sein sollte

  • I stayed here with four of my friends and we had an amazing weekend in Provence. This house is truly amazing with three bedrooms each containing its own bath tub. Just a note, there is only one toilet for the whole house. The patio has a dreamy view overlooking vineyards that make up the Bandol wine region. We spent plenty of time swimming in the pool and enjoying the fresh air outside. The nearby town of Cadiere d'Azur is incredibly charming with local shops and markets and amazing views. We made several day trips around the Provence region. Definitely rent a car and go.

    While the location and the house are truly amazing we did have a few issues. The house was not very clean, it is the countryside so a bit of dust is expected but this went a little beyond what I have come to expect with a typical Airbnb. Additionally the fridge does not get very cold which is important for the warm temperatures of summer. We had some issues with listing details which have been resolved. The host agreed to offer a discount for these issues. From what I have read this house is new to Airbnb. I think with a little time and care these issues will be avoided and you can enjoy a splendid stay at this special place.
