Things to do

-Local history. Besse-sur-Issole is a charming village and well worth a stroll. There are many old fountains on the streets here, as well as a belfry and chapels, all clustered around a small lake and overlooked by a castle. The area is known for its Cistercian Abbeys, and there are three beautiful examples within an easy drive – Thoronet, Sénanque and Silvacane.

-Activities. In the vicinity there’s an exquisite landscape of terraced vineyards, olive groves, rocky hills and pine forest. There’s a stables and equestrian centre in Besse-sur-Issole offering horseback trips. On foot there’s lots to discover – you could follow the route to the chapel of Notre Dame du Glaive or explore the nature reserve around the Escarcets Lake, which is known for its excellent water quality and is popular with fishers.

-Food and drink. Var is a department of France that has a strong reputation for its Rosé wine, but also produces red and white varieties. Three wines in this area have an AOC label – Binse de Bandol, Coteaux Varois and Côtes de Provence. Food here features lots of tomato and herbs, and the fish is superb this close to the coast. Olive oil is also an important local product – in the summer months you could make the trip to Sainte Maxime for tours and tastings at la Domaine de la Piere Plantee olive groves.

-Verdon Gorge. To the north is this river canyon, considered to be one of the most impressive in Europe. It draws visitors for many different reasons – climbers can scale the canyon’s limestone walls, with 1,500 courses to choose from; hikers come to admire the immense beauty of the gorge, especially the view from the north rim, and it’s also possible to kayak or raft along the Verdon for an unforgettable adventure.

-Coast. The Mediterranean is around half an hour from the village of Besse-sur-Issole. The nearest beaches can be found at Hyères, which has a 20-kilometre coastline comprising all varieties of bays and coves, with pebbles, white and golden sand, and offering superb conditions for activities like windsurfing. For families the best choices are Bergerie à l’Ayguade, L’Almanarre, l’Alycastre and La Courtade.

The house is as beautiful as the pictures show, equipped with everything we needed to self-cater for our stay as well as being clean and well looked after. The swimming pool was lovely and clean (although it wasn't quite warm enough to get in more than a couple of times due to the weather not being as good as the week before our arrival) and the jacuzzi was amazing - we spent almost every evening in their enjoying the view of the stars! Barbara is a fantastic host, who lives in the main house on the property so is available to answer any questions, pass on her knowledge of the surrounding areas and have a chat and share some local foods with you. She is friendly and quick to respond to any messages before we arrived. Overall, a nice, relaxing break in a beautiful area. Thank you Barbara and we wish you all the best!

The villa has everything one needs for a perfect holiday with pool and a large garden, and it is so well situated just a few minutes walk from the old town. Carine is the ideal villa owner welcoming us when we arrived, showing us around and giving us updates on the restaurants, beaches etc.. She was also extremely helpful with advice when we needed some medical attention. We would thoroughly recommend this villa. Sue and Richard

In size, it was perfect for two adults, but would obviously cope with a family. I'm less sure about 4 adults. The forest setting is wonderful with the house, garden and pool sitting on a terrace carved from the steeply sloping woods above barjols. Lots of lovely things to see and do although we didn't feel the need to stray far. There are a few houses being built immediately below the property which created a bit of noise but I'm pretty sure they will be completed before next season. Once finished they won't intrude. Judging the house on its own, it was a clear 5 stars. The reason for a 4 star overall rating from us is that it lies above a less attractive residential end of barjols which just slightly took the edge off an otherwise perfect holiday.
