About Karyn Vermast-Bissuel

I am originally from Provence and Mas de la Colline was another step towards returning back to my home turfs.

What was first a hobby with our first Mas in Le Castellet, became a profession with the acquisition of Mas de la Colline. Renovating houses is one of my passions.

Our son is another one. He is a very lively little boy and likes to visit Mas de la Colline from time to time.

What I like most about what I'm doing are the many encounters it allows. Meeting our guests and seeing them happy during their holidays gives me great satisfaction !

Karyn Vermast-Bissuel purchased this villa in 2007

Why Karyn Vermast-Bissuel chose Bandol

If I had to design a house, I would do it the Mas de la Colline way. If I had to choose a place to build it, it would be where Mas de la Colline is !

What makes this villa unique

Very nice architecture combined with the breathtaking view in an absolute quiet and romantic place.

Perfect place for a holiday

  • 5 out of 5
Mas de la Colline proved to be an excellent choice for our summer vacation. The location, high up above Bandol is stunning and the new swimming pool is superb; so much so that we never once dipped our toes in the Med during our whole two weeks there! The house is well appointed and the external dining arrangements on the terrace made every meal a pleasure. The owners were very helpful at all times - we would certainly consider returning for a future holiday.

Perfect holiday in Provence

  • 5 out of 5
My wife and I and our 4 children aged between 7 and 12 years old spent a week at le Mas in April. The house is in a quiet location at the top of a hill with a breathtaking view. The view and the surrounding wilderness get slowly into you and have an incredibly relaxing effect. The house blends nicely with the landscape and has an incredible feel good factor.The house interior is charming with a mix of traditional and modern features, fully equipped and spacious. The pool and poolside are fantastic! There are also lots of great places to visit in the area. The owners and staff were very responsive to our requests. All in all this was the perfect holiday. Definitely recommend.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for this nicely written review. It's a testimonial that in early April the charms of Mas de la Colline and our beautiful Region are already attractive.

The spring season is definitely an interesting period for visiting the Provence sea side. Nature is flourishing, tourist attractions are open and well accessible and bathing at Mas de la Colline is a pleasure due to the pool heating.

Regarding the equipment of the villa, dear future guest, please be informed that starting this season, you'll benefit from a Nespresso machine and a docking station for listening music via iPhone or iPod (can be used inside the villa or on the terrace).

An amazing stay @ Mas de la colline

  • 5 out of 5
Stayed there 7 days with 3 other couples of friends. This villa is very well located on a charming hill. Not far from Bandol city center and beaches.

Rooms are very comfortable and clean. Appliances are in great condition and the swimming pool area is just awesome !!

Environment is unique with breathtaking views on the sea, especially at night time where you can see all lights from nearby villages.

Definitely worth it !

Villa would be perfect with air-conditioning system, but it's probably because I am used to living with air-con all year round...

Thx for this lovely stay !
Will be back !

Owner's Response: Many thanks for this nice review!

We discussed the question whether or not to install an air conditioning system thoroughly and came to the conclusion that we prefer to cool the house the natural way - the way the Mas were always cooled down here in the South:

- thick stone walls
- well insulated roof
- shutters closed during day time
- shutters and windows opened during the night

Moreover the house is equipped with various fans (ceiling fans and fans on feet) and mosquito nets protecting our guests from unwished intruders during the night.

In summer at La Colline, the outside temperature at night usually cools down to 21 -23 degrees, allowing a nice refreshment of the house.

Missing the view at the end of the Bed!!!

  • 5 out of 5
The first time we climbed the steep road and arrived at Mas de la Colline the vista just took our breath away. The farmhouse is elegantly, ergonomically and simply laid out. There is a very pleasing and easy flow to the house which offers the perfect relaxing environment. Inside, a huge living room with soft sofas and giant TV. Outside, plenty of poolside sunbeds for sitting and reading, the scent of pine wafts on the breeze, having warmed up in the sunshine the pool is tantalisingly cooling and refreshing.
Further outdoor relaxation spaces were cool and shaded with many nooks and crannies to escape to as well as larger areas to gather all together for 'sun downers'. As dusk descended the vista transformed from brilliant bright blue to twinkling midnight blue. During our stay we witnessed the full moon reflected on the still pool and from our vantage point high on the hill the stunning summer firework display at Bandol. We soon realised we didn't need to eat out, we had the best view in the bay.
The local beaches and seaside towns are only a short drive away. We took the ferry from Bandol to the little island 'Ile de Bendor', take snorkels and goggles as the water is so clear the fish swim straight up to you. We ate at Le Soukana Plage restaurant, looking back to the mainland we spotted Mas de la Colline nestled high in the pine forest and felt very privileged that the farmhouse was our home for two weeks.
Would we go back - in a heartbeat.

We were a varied party of nine aged 10 to 70ish, the pool is fabulous fun and beautifully designed. Eating was a joy, outside on the terrace, late breakfasts and lazy lunches rolled into dinner prepared on the outside BBQ. (The Carrefour at the end of the road has a great fish and deli counter). The local markets are worth experiencing but in August are very busy - go early.
We would like to thank the owners, they provided excellent service and vision for Mas de la Colline as a relaxing five star holiday property. The small details definitely made the difference, thick towels, wooden outside furniture, plenty of plates, cups, glasses and a weekly cleaning service and fabulous views from the end of the bed!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for this very nice and complete review. It becomes again clear that guests are in the best position to describe facts, impressions and feelings. Now this review is almost 360 degrees, which other holiday makers surely will appreciate.

Let's take this opportunity fo a little excursion into history: You mention the island "Ile de Bendor". This island was bought and developed by Paul Ricard back in the late fifties. Paul Ricard is the gentleman that has invented the modern version of the famous southern french drink called "Pastis" - many people still call it "Ricard". At about the same period, he also bought and developed l'Île des Embiez", facing Six Fours les Plages next to Sanary-sur-Mer. Both islands merit to be visited!

Thanks again and hope to welcome you guys back soon in the South !!!

Perfect Provence

  • 5 out of 5
Mas de la Colline was fantastic! The view is far more impressive in person and the covered outdoor space was divine! The bedroom set up was ample. The kitchen appliances were all great and to American standards. The bathrooms are also very nice! The cleaning lady, Mme Courtois, was incredibly nice and did a great job at keeping this house clean. And Patrick, the pool guy came and went quietly and we never saw him which was much appreciated. The drive up to the house is a little "iffy" because it is a narrow one lane chemin going up a mountain. In some spots you may have to reverse if someone is coming up in the other direction..but that just adds to the charm. The property is very private and we loved that about it. The owners, Karyn and Tom were very responsive and attentive. They came to meet us and that made the stay that much more personal. We would definitely come again to the beautiful quiet and charming home.

The perfect location, perched along the Med

  • 5 out of 5
The perfect location, sufficiently perched along a stretch of the Mediterranean, and off the beaten track to enjoy the South of France in peace. My name is Linda, and my husband and my son and I rented the La Colline home over the last week of April this year (2012), and it was absolutely amazing. We couldn't have asked for anything more. We have told everyone we know about how beautiful this property is. Everyone in our family found something special at La Colline from the spectacular ocean view, the beautiful forty year old Cyprus trees, the artwork, to the care in decorating the bedrooms, the exquisite swimming pool, phenomenal view, to the peace and quiet we all felt. We've stayed in many homes, but La Colline tops the list, a real bubble of comfort. We had one of the best weeks of our life. Thank you again for everything, we raise a glass to the most delightful week imaginable, Linda and Adrie

Owner's Response: Many thanks. It is a great pleasure to have guests like you guys and your feedback is a big motivation for us to improve even further.

Let us add to your description one of Mas de la Colline's new features we added this winter: the mobile ping pong table, which you used extensively on the terrace facing the sea !

Hope to see you back soon on the hill.
All the best.
