Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Callas

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

This beautiful villa with pool sits on a terraced hillside acre with a lovely established garden and 60+ olive trees. It overlooks Callas, a charming village just 500 metres away with shops including grocery store, wine shop, olive mill and shop, post office, restaurants, a weekly market, and services. Walk for your morning croissants or evening meal!

Newly furnished to high standards with plenty of local antiques and art, this classic Provencal villa offers a myriad of comfortable living spaces, both indoors and out, in which to relax and enjoy your holiday. One hour drive from the Nice and Toulon international airports and the train station at Aix-en-Provence, and only 15 minutes’ drive from the A8 motorway. Avignon and Marseilles are approximately one and a quarter hours away.

Nearby activities include: lively market towns - including the fabulous Sunday market at Le Muy; St. Tropez, Cannes and other famed beaches; golf; historic sights; gourmet dining; boating and fishing; Lower Alps skiing; and natural wonders such as the Gorges du Verdon. Most are within 20-30 minutes' drive.

The entrance to the villa is welcoming, with a light-filled entrance hall and guest toilet. A staircase to the right of the entrance hall leads to two second floor bedrooms, each with twin beds, and a full bathroom including bath and shower. Several steps lead down from the entrance to the main floor. The left wing of the main floor contains one bedroom with twin beds and lovely antiques, a full bathroom with shower, and a master bedroom with a king-sized bed and French doors leading to the outdoor terrace and a wonderful view of Callas. To the right, the main floor dining room has a large antique dining table able to seat 10 and French doors leading to an outdoor terrace, shaded in wisteria. The living room has a sofa, armchairs, fireplace and, hidden behind antique armoire doors, a satellite television and sound system; the living room also has double French doors, leading on to the outdoor terrace and looking out over Callas. The well-equipped kitchen leads to a covered outdoor summer kitchen with built-in barbeque and sink, and a large terrace with a teak dining table able to seat 10, with an awning that can be rolled out for shade if desired. Also attached to the kitchen is a garage/utility room, with a washing machine, large freezer, and drying rack.

About Julia Deans

We are a Toronto-based family of four and started visiting the Callas area while living in Asia with young children. We have a wide variety of interests but all love coming to Callas to relax, explore, and immerse ourselves in all things French.

Julia Deans purchased this house in 2005

Why Julia Deans chose Callas

We bought our villa after renting in the area for many years. Every time we left, we had a longer list of things to do on our next visit, and so we knew we'd never get bored! The list now includes everything from great markets and restaurants to running routes and basketball courts to beaches and cultural sites - we love sharing it with our guests. Callas is also a great place to relax - have a morning cafe au lait in the square, a leisurely lunch on the terrace and an afternoon reading under the shade of the mulberry tree or by the pool. Perfection!

Nice Provencal holiday again!

  • 4 out of 5
My husband and I and our almost-16 year old son, stayed here for 2 weeks. Weather was lovely and hot, and we had a very relaxing time overall. We enjoyed being able to walk into Callas for early-morning croissants and bread, and the Hotel Du France in town was excellent value for lunch, and really good cuisine overall. We splurged again at the Michelin restaurant (Gorge du Pennafort) and once again found the 18 courses delicious, but just too much food - a la carte next time for us! We were pretty lazy and didn't leave the house except to shop for food, or eat out - the places we wanted to visit were a bit far away so we opted to chill by the pool most days. The pool was good, and we especially enjoyed the company of 3 chickens who roamed the flower beds looking for bugs to eat. We sat out and BBQ'd most evenings - the BBQ was excellent - we wished there was some comfy outdoor seating to relax a bit more in - but we played cards and games at the table a lot. The stereo and TV/DVD in the house was good - we watched a couple of films and listened to music most evenings. Amandine, the house manager, was excellent, and responsive to the few things we needed while we were there (more pillowcases and a minor dishwasher repair - all taken care of very easily and no hassle to us).
All in all, a very relaxing and easy vacation, in a wonderful area of Provence, with typically-excellent food and wine abounding. Julia provided tons of useful information and checked we were OK once there - making the overall experience even better!

From the moment we walked through the door, I
wished our stay could have been longer. There
were 6 of us (3 couples). We enjoyed the house, the
garden and surrounding area. It was our first visit
to Provence. Peaceful, comfortable, inviting and
memorable. The Deans have created a lovely retreat
that we made all our own - if only for one week.
Thank you. Veronica Pantin

We always wish we could stay longer! The villa is very
comfortable, the garden is gorgeous and the village is
charming. Provisioning is easy; the village has an
excellent butcher/charcuterie, great wine shop and a
bakery, not to mention the herbs straight from the
garden.

Felt like home the minute we walked in the door. Great base for day travel. Village was friendly and within easy walking distance. Terrace was perfect for the evening glass of wine.

Our stay at the villa was outstanding! The villa is spacious and beautifully appointed. The kitchen is well supplied so that you can create any kind of meal. We loved the gardens and the pool - the perfect end to a day of sightseeing. The Deans have developed an incredible document that provides invaluable information on how to operate everything in the house, shopping, transportation, restaurants, day trips, etc.

We would return in a heart beat! It was a magical holiday.
