Villa paradise in center region Var, Le Thoronet

  • 5 out of 5
We had a wonderfull time in the villa, 14 days, using the beautiful river a lot in the hot midday, and the pool at all other times.

your house were perfect for the size of our company of 9, and it is truly a paradise spot you found there.
the kithcen is perfect size, and yes we used it every second day.

We had a super experience with the bigger children,
+5 yrs, renting kayaks, at the road between Carces and Lorgue, 4 hours and 8 km of fun in beautiful surroundings, ending up at a landingplace near Le Thoronet, where you could swim and cool of, untill being collected and returned together with the kayaks, to starting point collecting our
car.

we can highly recommend the local restaurants, as we found "le vallon" and the little one by the square in center of "le thoronet" having a standard we didn't expect to find, and at cheap prises as well. 170 euros all in for, 9 people.
We sadly never found the time to try the creperie in center town, we only thought of it as making deserts, untill 3 days before leaving.

we also visited your local domaine l'abbey, visiting the cave, winecellar, original from 1250, small but exciting and wonderful, and the very french guide sold us but to much, wine and oil.
Their "grand reserve" was very well worth the price,
giving a little hint, buy it in town, by the butcher or by caeur du var shop, as they are much cheaper than buying it on the "chateau"

we visited the sorrounding villages, and found the market at Lorgue, being the best, but with expensive restaurants.

The evening markets at frejus/st. raphael were a treat for the whole family, as the little ones could try the "tivoli" things. We dined at a brasserie by the harbour, wonderful meal, and cheap as well, 60 euros less than in Lorgue.

again very much thank you for having us, we will be back, travelling otherwise, 26 hrs from denmark, without a sleepover is to much, but will be back for sure.

Had a fantastic one week stay here. It was a great base to explore the Coast and numerous local villages and towns from. Rooms were spacious and well laid out, perfect for two families with small children, but could easily have accommodated more. A vast selection of toys, books and DVDs and a huge enclosed garden to keep the kids amused. Pool was lovely and a great size. We really enjoyed our stay only wish it could have been for longer but would definitely return.

Great place for a large family holiday

  • 5 out of 5
We had a great week. The villa was just what we expected from the description. We were 6 adults plus children of 6, 3 and 11 months, and it seemed to be perfect for everyone. There was a fabulous collection of toys, games and things to ride on. The trampoline was a highlight for many - even we grandparents had a go. And of course the pool was at the centre of everything

It was clean and everything worked. Jean Francois kept the pool immaculate and was very forgiving when we overfilled it.

Probably the most telling fact is that some of us hardly left the villa at all throughout the week - a couple of trips to local villages and one to the Abbaye by those who hadn't been before. So the barbecue saw a lot of service

Another plus is that the Richardsons are extremely friendly and efficient - a pleasure to do business with.

All in all highly recommended

A fabulous place to chill and relax.

  • 5 out of 5
We have just returned from a fabulous family holiday in this amazing villa. It is situated in a truly a beautiful spot in the Var and has every facility you could possibly wish for. On arrival we found the villa was spotlessly clean with every facility one could possibly need. We had 4 children ages from 4 to 11. The copious amount of toys were just amazing and our 2 little girls had the most wonderful time playing with them all. The kitchen was very well equipped and this coupled with the BQ made providing meals effortless, even for ten of us. Normally we would dine out a few evenings during the holiday but we cancelled the advanced bookings made because the villa was so idyllic for our family, the children were able to entertain themselves in the grounds, in the house or mainly on the trampoline whilst the adults enjoyed the wonderfully balmy evenings relaxing on the terrace. The house is indeed very spacious and provided plenty of room for our group of 10. The sitting room is very comfortable and again well appointed with every device needed although, only the children used this area to watch a DVD in the early mornings, the adults always gravitated to the wonderful outside terrace to enjoy the amazing views, read, use the Internet or enjoy long chats accompanied by the obligatory glass of liquid refreshment from the local vineyards. The bedrooms are all very well appointed with reading lamps and plenty of hanging space. The mattresses, bed linen and towels were all of very good quality. The configuration of bathrooms and on suites worked very well for our large group. The villa also has a hair dryer if one needs one. The pool is large and totally fantastic with plenty of good quality sun beds and umbrellas to shade you from the mid day sun. The two little girls were non-swimmers when we arrived but by the end of day one they were launching themselves of the steps of the their 'Pool Noodles,' some of which were provided, so they older children had ones to play with too. Having graduated steps into the pool was super, particularly for the younger children and the adults who like to gently launch themselves into the water! The trampoline was fantastic, when the children were taking a breather from the pool they enjoyed using up their boundless energy on the trampoline or using it as a place to 'hang out' away from the adults. All this and the amazing grounds ensured we had the most fabulous holiday ever. We have booked for 2015.

Better than the brochure!

  • 5 out of 5
We had an absolutely fabulous time, thanks. Your villa was even better than we expected. The pool was stunning, with all the loungers you could need. There was plenty for the kids to do and space to do it. The trampoline was used everyday, the copious toys were brilliant, the kids could explore the grounds and found dens in the woods. The showers were really powerful and the house remained cool. It was great also to be able to relax watching British TV. Barbecuing and eating on the patio under the gazebo was amazing.
We would definitely go back there.

A secluded, spacious villa with large grounds.

  • 5 out of 5
This is a perfect and peaceful place for a family holiday. The villa is immaculate and has all a parent could want for children and babies. The grounds are large with a big pool and there is a river at the bottom of the garden. We have stayed here five times and will be back next year. It feels like home to the three generations of our family. The nearby villages are charming and provide excellent shopping, cafes and restaurants. The A8 autoroute is only 15 minutes away, putting Nice and Aix in easy reach. What a place for a holiday!
