As foodies ourselves, we understand that for you to live the Provence lifestyle, a well equipped kitchen is essential. There is nothing more satisfying than preparing a fresh meal for friends and family. With a variety of bakeries and great shops nearby you won’t need much inspiration, however, you’ll find a selection of our favourite traditional recipes - just incase. There is a cooker, large American style fridge freezer, outside oven, dishwasher and washing machine.
Surrounding area: Cotignac is a vibrant, friendly village with many shops, cafés, bars and restaurants. On Tuesdays a large provençal market dominates the main square. The village lies 45 minutes to 1 hour between the beautiful beaches of the french riviera and the gorges du verdon, making it an ideal base to explore from. The nearest beaches to reach are around ste maxime and frejus (50mins) both with aquaparks for the children. Drive south across the maures hills to reach grimaud, port grimaud and st tropez (1hr). North, the unspoilt lac st croix (45mins) is a must, with swimming and many water sports on its turquoise water. Further on the dramatic gorges du verdon (50mins), france's own grand canyon, has canoeing, rafting and the most spectacular scenery. Nearby places to visit include the abbey du thoronet, the waterfall at sillans-la-cascade, the chateau at entrecasteaux and the many picturesque villages such as villecroze and toutour 'the village in the sky'.

Carl and Viv
We spend alot time in Cotignac, Carl first found it in 1998 and fell in love with it's vibrant and friendly ambience. We enjoy the range of activities on the doorstep and how easy it is to get soak up the coastline. Nice is personal favourite! We love the winter months here, you can see so much with bright sunny days and enjoy a cosy fire and bottle of wine at night. When we are not in France, we live and work in the UK. We find it easy to find great deals on flights to Nice and trains from most areas in the UK and hope you do to.
Carl was in charge of building the property in 1998, he saw potential for a beautiful home and fell in love with the location and space. Building this home to a high spec was great and we're very pleased with the outcome.
For us, it's the scenery surrounding the house - it is wonderful, and very spacious. The large pool and gardens are just ideal, we recently revamped the pool bar and feedback from our regular holiday makers has been excellent.
