Aups is an impossibly picturesque village high in the hills of Haut-Var. Known for the defensive tower that dominates the skyline, Aups is home to many sights, packed along twisting, medieval streets.

The house is great, everything you need, great kitchen and appliances. Good size garden and great pool plus badminton, table tennis. The old village is lovely, just a short walk away to decent restaurants and a good bakery. Shame the other shops have closed, but only a 5 min drive to Salernes for a supermarket. Great location for getting out too. The Gorge du Verdon is only 30 mins away, with it's stunning views and canoeing/pedalos in the lake. Depending on traffic, you can get to Nice, Cannes, St Tropez etc. Within 90 minutes. Recommended

Renovated with good taste it also had a cool atmosphere because of a working air conditioning. The place was very sunny, so the pool was very appreciated. David (the owner) was very nice host and spoke fluent english and he also gave us many good tips where to visit in Var region. Within 30 km there's a lot to see and many good restaurants. No wonder we had a nice and relaxing holiday.

The house is spacious and comfortable in a traditional Province style. Everywhere was clean and tidy with comfortable beds. The outlook from every room is spectacular over the large garden and surrounding hills. This is a truly traditional Province setting with the bonus of wonderfully landscaped gardens. There is a new well kitted kitchen adjacent to a large sitting room. The only criticism we have of the house was the about some of the bathrooms. They are in need of an update though everything worked OK. Outside the pool area is good with plenty of loungers with or without shelter under the trees. The outside kitchen is substantial, covered by a large roof and has a barbecue and pizza oven - if you know how to use it! If you like the traditional Provence outdoors you'll enjoy this property.
