An 18th century, traditional Bastide house, surrounded by a verdant garden with Tuscan-style terracing, near to Verdon Gorges in the midst of rural Provence.
In the east of the French department of Upper Var, between Grasse and Draguignan, in the direction of Verdon Gorges, some 40 km away. Two picturesque villages, renowned for their medieval history are 2 to 3 km away. The unspoilt surroundings include steep landscapes, between rivers and wooded hills. Numerous streams flow near to the property and there are many old water mills in the area. The slip road on to the A8 motorway is 25 km away; a TGV train station is 30 km away. Draguignan is at a distance of 20 km. Nice international airport takes an hour by car. Sainte-Croix lake and Verdon Gorges are 45 km away. The Var beaches, towards Saint-Raphaël and Sainte-Maxime, are some 50 km away.
This 18th century building, nestling in a natural setting, has been transformed over the years into a large family residence with its leisure gardens. Its tall south-facing facade, built of limestone quarry blocks, features some 24 windows with wooden shutters, painted in grey-green hues. The windows are framed with dressed stone and the shutters still have their original catches. The gable roof is covered with Roman tiles. Facing this traditional Bastide house, an old ornamental pool with its fountain is set in a lawn parterre and a small topiary garden extends in the shade of 5 plane trees, over a hundred years old. On the side and below, another garden with a stone ornamental pool filled with waterlilies collects water from a source, flowing down from a channel on the heights of the property. More steps, on the left-hand side of this traditional Bastide house, go up to a wisteria-covered terrace providing access to the second floor. At the bottom of the garden, stone steps lead to terracing where olive, oak and yew trees grow against the azure blue sky of the horizon. A swimming pool is set on one level. The panoramic view comprises wooded hills, villages with their bell-towers and hilltops for as far as the eye can see. A small chapel stands looking down on the end of the property. A caretaker’s cottage, with its own entrance and small garden, is to be found further down.
