Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday villa in Fayence - Bastidon des Oliviers

5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, sleeps 10.

Bastidon des Oliviers is set in over an acre of terraced olive grove with a spectacular infinity pool, enjoying glorious views over the surrounding countryside. It is less than ten minutes walk from the hilltop village of Claviers, near Bargemon. A secluded location, yet within easy access of the Côte d’Azur resorts. It is one hour to Nice, St Tropez and the Gorges du Verdon. The nearest beaches at St Raphael and Frejus are 40 minutes away.

The large, split level property comprises a self-contained three bedroom villa on the upper level and an independent two bedroom apartment on the lower level, ideal for two families sharing. The villa and apartment can interconnect through the large utility room.

The main villa comprises, on the ground floor, a large living and dining room opening onto the main terrace, a fully fitted oak kitchen, a twin bedroom, a very spacious bathroom with a full size bath with shower and a washbasin, a separate WC and a shower room. On the upper floor there is an additional twin bedroom, a double bedroom and washroom with WC. The upper floor also opens onto a terrace with lovely views towards Claviers village.

On the lower level, the apartment comprises a spacious living and dining room with a curtained off archway through to a twin bedroom, a separate double bedroom, a kitchen fitted with oak units and a shower room with a shower cubicle, washbasin and WC.

The Villa Grounds: The property is set in its own terraced olive grove in a peaceful location, offering splendid views from all points over the surrounding hills and the villages of Claviers and Bargemon. The villa and grounds are South facing and enjoy maximum day long sunshine throughout the year.

A lovely silk tree provides natural shade for summer dining on the terrace in front of the villa, and there is also a covered patio in front of the apartment on the lower level. Both dining areas have gas barbecues and benefit from gorgeous views over the surrounding area.

The large overflow pool (11m x 4m), pool terrace and extensive private gardens are available for the enjoyment of all guests. The poolside is fully equipped with garden furniture and parasols.There is an attractive balustrade at each side of the pool and there is a child safety alarm for the pool. There is also a gate between the villa and the pool. Similarly there is a fence with a gate to the olive grove and terraced land.

A quiet road leads directly from the grounds to Claviers village, about a 10 minute walk away.

The Local Area: Claviers is located in a beautiful area of The Var, boasting some of the finest scenery Provence has to offer. The countryside is predominantly wooded hillsides dotted with picturesque, perched villages and interspersed with luxuriant valleys and deep gorges sparkling with fast flowing rivers and crystalline rock pools. The Claviers area has all of this, plus mile after mile of pine and olive groves, vineyards, châteaux and villages untouched by the passing of time. Quite incredible when you appreciate how close it is to the sophisticated coast.

There are numerous interesting nearby villages. Seillans and Bargemon have both been voted amongst the most attractive villages in France but in our view all the local villages are very attractive and worth a visit in their own right. Other villages include Callas, unspoilt and typical of the area, Fayence, the largest and busiest with a lovely viewpoint and famous gliding club and Chateaudouble, perched on the edge of it's gorge.

The Cote d'Azur: The Cote d'Azur has been known since the early nineteenth century as Europe’s leading playground. As a holiday destination it is unsurpassed in the world, offering a beautiful stretch of coastline backed by the jagged peaks of the Alps, superbly maintained top class resorts, magnificent promenades and gardens, as well as a plethora of historic towns and ancient hilltop villages amid fabulous countryside and with an exceptional climate, cuisine and wine. The coastline is an ever-changing series of glimmering bays interspersed with rugged rocky peninsulas and dramatic cliffs falling straight into the sea. The coastal towns are renowned the world over. Cannes is a 45 minute drive from the villa, Nice and St. Tropez one hour and St. Raphael 35 minutes.

The coastal drive on the from La Napoule to St. Raphael is full of dramatic scenery backed by the red craggy mountains of the Esterel National Park. It is here you will find our nearest coastal beaches (35-40 minutes drive).

We (Jill and Ray) bought Les Chenes (property Ref 6350) as our permanent residence in 1994. We have been renting the property out as a holiday home since 2002 when we moved into another house which we had built near Seillans. We bought Bastidon des Oliviers (property ref 9397) in 1998 with a view to renting it out as a rental home. We live permanently near Seillans and actively manage our properties ourselves so they are always maintained to a high standard and we are on hand to solve any problems that may arise during the course of the rental season. When renting holiday homes for ourselves we have found that it can be a big advantage to have the owners on hand.

Jill McQueen purchased this villa in 1998

We fell in love with the area as soon as we first explored it as it is very beautiful, quieter than the coastal resorts and yet has easy access to the Cote d'Azur. It is just over half an hour's drive to the coast at St Raphael/Frejus. The main reason for our choice of Bastidon des Oliviers was the location of the villa within walking distance of the village of Claviers and the fabulous situation. The property is located in an acre and a half of terraced olive grove which has beautiful views over the surrounding hills and the villages of Claviers and Bargemon.

The property is conveniently located for access to the village and yet is very secluded and quiet, which is not always the case for houses located within walking distance to the village. There are amazing views from both the villa and the apartment, which are quite separate, and the infinity pool is particularly spectacular. Looking in one direction you can see the village of Claviers and in the other, Bargemon. Our land is totally private with no overlooking houses and a quiet path leads from it to the village. Claviers is a lovely quiet village, virtually unchanged from it's medieval past and yet has all the conveniences you may require and a choice of bars and restaurants. Bargemon is a much larger village with a beautiful shaded square with numerous bars and restaurants.

Bastidon des Oliviers is situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty, less than ten minutes walk from the splendid hilltop village of Claviers, near Bargemon (voted “one of the most beautiful villages in France”). The property is set amongst terraced olive groves in over an acre of land on a hillside with a spectacular infinity pool, enjoying glorious views over the surrounding countryside. A fabulous secluded location, yet within easy access of the Cote d’Azur resorts, which can be quickly reached via the A8 motorway (20 minutes away). It is a 45 minute drive to Cannes or to the Gorges du Verdon, 1 hour to Nice airport or St. Tropez and 35 minutes to the nearest beaches at Fréjus or St. Raphael.

Claviers is located in a beautiful area of The Var (the “département”), boasting some of the finest scenery Provence has to offer. There are numerous interesting nearby villages. Seillans and Bargemon have both been voted amongst the most attractive villages in France but in our view all the local villages are very attractive and worth a visit in their own right. Amongst the nearest are Callas, unspoilt and typical of the area; Fayence, the largest and busiest with a lovely viewpoint and famous gliding club; Callian, ancient and very pretty; St. Cezaire, perched on a cliff edge, and Mons, nestled in the hills, with superb views over the Gorges de la Siagne and the coast. And, if you prefer swimming in a lake or want to indulge in watersports or fishing, Lake St. Cassien is just a short drive away or you can visit the impressive Lac de Ste. Croix at the entrance to the Gorges du Verdon. Most outdoor activites are available locally including hiking, climbing, canyoning, golf, tennis, gliding, non-motorised watersports on the lake and most watersports at the coast.
