About Colin or Elizabeth Cook
The owners are retired having lived in various countries and now spend time every month in Les Micocouliers to enjoy France - and some sunshine. The proximity to mountains, sea and fascinating artistic and scenic heritage of the region provide the variety we wanted in a holiday home which has turned into much more.. - a place we spend 1/3 the year.
Colin or Elizabeth Cook purchased this villa in 2002
Why Colin or Elizabeth Cook chose Callas
We searched for a house big enough for our family and friends to stay, with an easy walk to a small/old village to collect the morning bread eat out in the evening etc without using a car, but with tranquility, a view, access to local walks and within a one hour drive of Nice airport.. All in a region where the weather really is different to the UK, summer and winter
This property comfortably fits our family and our/their friends, 200 meters from the village square, the house is still a minimum 50 meters from its nearest neighbour, so quite private.
It is near enough to the coast for children to visit, yet only 45 minutes from the nearest skiing (or mountain walks in summer).
What makes this villa unique
Callas is close enough to Nice airport (1 hour) to make a short stay viable; something our adult children take every opportunity to visit for golf, wind surfing, enjoying the many facilities in the region or just unwinding by the pool or in the village.
There are hundreds of vineyards all around to learn more about wine and enjoy their product.
The village has four good restaurants within 300 meters of the house so no car) and a Michelin starred restaurant within 5 miles for real celebration.(and there is always Eric (taxi) to drive there).
It is quite possible to park the car and stay for a week without using it again as the village, market and store, can provide everything. tho' we tend to do weekly super market in Draguignan, 20 minutes away.
