La Provence Verte - A hidden jewel in the heart of Provence

La Provence Verte lies tucked away from the summer crowds between the Verdon, La Sainte-Baume and La Sainte-Victoire. The 'Green Provence' includes 37 communes that make up one of the most beautiful regions of France. This region of the Var lies on a plateau about 300 metres above sea level and has stunning and abundant vineyards, miles of pine forests and medieval hillside villages, is particularly quiet even in the height of summer.

The area around Brignoles lies halfway between the Gorges du Verdon, the deepest gorge in Europe, to the north and the beautiful sandy beaches around Hyeres to the south, including Fort Bregancon, the French President's summer residence. The contrasting Provencal cities of Aix-en-Provence and Nice lie to the west and east, respectively. Staying in a holiday home in this area makes the perfect base from which to explore the uniquely varied and interesting destinations in this the heart of Provence.

The Lac de Sainte Croix is just one of the beautiful lakes where you can enjoy water sports, including white water rafting, canoeing and fishing. Walking and cycling enthusiasts will find many mapped routes, from easy to very difficult. Around this area in late June and July, you can appreciate the aroma of lavender fields stretching before you for miles, and delight in having locally produced lavender honey with your croissants for breakfast.

Restaurants in the area serve wonderfully delicious and aromatic Provencal cuisine; they vary from inexpensive intimate restaurants owned and run by husband-and-wife teams, to L'abbaye De La Celle owned by Michelin-starred chef Alain Ducasse. For anyone who appreciates quality wines, you can visit the many local wine domains.

This area has some truly superb golf courses, which are usually quiet and within easy reach by car. Golf de Barbaroux is undoubtedly one of the best courses in the region. This championship course, the only one in Europe designed by American golf architects Pete and PB Dye, is now ranked in the top twenty in France.

The area is not only rich in history, but also culture, the whole month of August being dedicated to music (especially jazz) and theatre, with performances taking place in every village in La Provence Verte.

The Counts of Provence chose the ancient Roman town of Brignoles because of the perfect climate and beautiful countryside. This area enjoys 300 sunny days each year, where summers are warm and dry and the skies are clear and blue even in the winter. In this the heart of the region you can immerse yourself in the true Provence and experience its culture, cuisine and magnificent landscape. This variety and richness encourages many visitors to return year after year.

Wonderful Villa with everything you need for a fun and comfortable stay

5 of 5
A huge thank you for letting us stay in your villa for 2 weeks in July 2017. A wonderful villa, very clean, comfortable, quiet and with everything we needed for our two week stay. It was a little difficult to find the first time, but we were met in the local town and led up to it, which was much appreciated. The only thing to watch for is if you have difficulty with stairs, then there are no rails to help you up and down the outside steps and into the pool. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here and would definitely visit again. A big big thank you to you both for your superb hospitality, it was really lovely to meet you and we have been recommending your villa to our friends.

Fabulous villa in a great location

5 of 5
The villa is better in real life than the photos depict with a very well equipped kitchen, great wi-fi, it is all so spacious and clean with high end bed linen, towels etc. The outside area is the real star - such a lovely well tended garden with lots of places to sit, relax and enjoy the peace / listen to the birds singing. Also the pool was great and not overlooked. The house is about 2km from Cotignac village full of restaurants (not one bad meal out - all were fabulous and some great value set menus too) and artists shops and the weekly market on a Tuesday is a MUST visit. Loads of vineyards nearby and an hour to the sea although we enjoyed the house and local villages so much we only went to the sea once and up to the lake and gorges once too. To be recommended for family holidays or a romantic trip for a couple as we were - we will return!
