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 overflow 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.

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 a large living and dining room, fully fitted oak kitchen, one double and two twin bedrooms, spacious bathroom with washbasin and WC, shower room, individual WC and separate washroom/WC. The apartment comprises a spacious living room with a curtained off archway through to a twin bedroom, separate double bedroom, kitchen fitted with oak units and shower room with 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.

Silk trees provide 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 lovely views over the surrounding area.

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

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.

We have spent the majority of our holidays in France for the last 16 years and your villa was definitely the best accommodation we have stayed in. C.H. Derbyshire. The setting was superb. The villa was well equipped, furnished and tended, and in the most beautiful area. J.S. Kent. We had the loveliest time. The villa is very comfortable and set up in a very thoughtful and comprehensive way. The “Guide” to the villa and the area was superb. P.M. USA. Villa superb, everything spotlessly clean, well stocked and presented. K.H. W. Midlands. Our third visit – superb as always. V.C. Surrey. A perfect holiday villa – well equipped, beautiful views..we rarely return to the same venue twice for our holidays but Bastidon des Oliviers might just tempt us! W.C. Cambs. Three marvellous weeks…the real star is the villa itself and its surroundings, and the pool – superb. R.A. Cleveland. Second visit – fantastic place! Everything you need, lovely house, beautiful setting. S.J. Herts

Beautiful

We hired the villa and the appartment together, and as a result enjoyed lots of space, complete privacy, and a beautiful sense of isolation and peace. The village is only a short walk (5-10 minutes) up the hill, and there is a bakery, a cafe and a pizzeria there. We had a fantastic time, as we were specifically looking for somewhere idealic, peaceful and private, and we got all that in spades. Very happy!!

Wonderful time

  • Review Submitted: 19-Mar-2013
  • Date of Stay: Sep 2012
We had a wonderful time at the villa. We were not expecting so many hills. It was a challenge that we enjoyed. We visited les Gorges de Verdon on our bikes, leaving from Combs. We also visited a lot of the surroundings, Bargemon, Seillans, Mons, Ste-Maxime, etc. On the last Friday we ate at the restaurant Les Tables Rondes in Bargemon, and we enjoyed a nice meal. It worth recommending to your future guests. We did not know that part of France.
We enjoyed your property which is well equipped and even used the pool.

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.

One party of up to ten people can comfortably be accommodated, but if the villa and the apartment are let separately, we normally limit occupancy to a maximum of eight. The pricing shown is for the whole property for groups of up to 6 except for peak season when the price is for up to 10 people. Pricing for 10 is slightly higher than shown for 6 in the off peak months.
  • Pricing is fully inclusive of linen, cleaning, electricity, gas, water.
    A 20% deposit is required to book and the balance is payable 12 weeks before arrival. There is a refundable damage deposit of £300 for the villa, £200 for the apartment and £500 for the whole property, due at least a week before arrival.
  • We provide sheets and continental quilts (and/or blankets, if you prefer) for all the beds, together with one bath towel and one hand towel per person. The linen is changed once a week and the accommodation will be thoroughly cleaned prior to your arrival with a briefer weekly clean during your stay for bookings of two weeks or more.
