Overview

About the property

Completely restored with private pool 5 bedrooms sleeps 4 - 10

Le Mas du Caillou is a charming fully restored centuries old stone farmhouse with 5 bedrooms sleeping 10 but owners prefer small families and offer competitive rates. The property is located within walking distance of the picturesque hilltop village of Callian and a 5 minute walk to the Callian tennis club that welcomes visitors. The large lighted terrace in front is perfect for enjoying your summer evenings and the terrace just off the kitchen next to the small lily pond and with gas/charcoal covered BBQ area is for comfortable dining. For the children, the heated pool will provide hours of entertainment. On site but out of view (behind tall hedges) is a cottage with a caretaker who offers extra security and assistance if required. The 9700 m sq. property is fully fenced with a remotely activated gate.

Inside (450 m sq.), the ground floor with tastefully appointed double living and dining rooms, and generously sized bedrooms include first floor rooms cooled by thick stone walls, second floor rooms with A/C and all rooms are screened. Internet access is available in most of the house. The spacious designer kitchen with granite work surfaces is the perfect place to experiment with provencal cuisine… just snip some rosemary and thyme from the pots and garden. Vive la Provence!

Activities : In the area we have great opportunities for mountain hiking and biking. We have Europe's largest gliding airfield. There are several places you can do horseback riding. All the villages have public tennis courts. The lake Lac St. Cassian offers rentals of paddle boats, canoes, rowing and fishing.

North of Callian in the Gorge du Verdon they offer white water rafting.

The coast is only 20-30 min drive away where you have both public and private beaches where you find rental places for windsurfers.

Golf : This is an ideal area for golfing. You can reach many golf courses within one-hour drive. The nearest golf courses are the two new courses at the Terre Blance only 10 minutes drive from the house. These golf courses are worth a visit. From the course you have fantastic views toward the villages and in the background the mountains. The domain de Terre Blance includes a Four Season Resort Hotel and you might even want to visit their magnificent restaurant La Faventia which was rewarded a Michelen star last year. Within another half hours drive you can reach the golf courses of St. Endreol in Le Muy, Grasse, Royal Mougins, The old course in Mandileu. This is really heaven for golfers

Places to visit: There are many interesting places to visit in the area and nearby. The local perched villages are all worth a visit.

Many offer a typical market several times a week.

Visit the local farmers market for fresh vegetables and fruit. Taste the local olive oil.

The vineyards are not far away and it is easy to make a day trip to visit some good wineries and taste the good local wine. Provence is especially known for its Rosé and if you haven't tried it you should during the hot summer it is fantastic.

This very charming authentic old stone house has been completely restored and is now a very comfortable, modern property maintaining the original Provençal charm. It is situated within walking distance of the medieval village of Callian in a private and very quiet area. The large, flat garden of 9700m2 land is fully enclosed with an automatic operated gate. There is a tiled pool 10 x 5 m, which is heated and has a cover. There is a carport with space for two cars. There is a beautiful little terrace next to the kitchen with the BBQ and a sink, next to a small pond. In front of the house there is a nice shaded area which serves as a terrace and then of course there is a terrace around the pool. The house was built on several levels and has a total area of 450m2. There is a caretaker living on site in a small cottage but separate on the property. The caretaker is not there during the days.

Callian house review

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for a fortnight and had a very pleasant break spending much time in the pool or reading or painting nearby. The kitchen was well equipped, good for the two enthusiastic chefs among the family, and the sitting room was better than we had expected.

The bedrooms were adequate but they did lack a degree of separation which might have been a problem if some of us were not close relatives.

That said we agreed at the end of the fortnight that we would come again, so that has to be something of an accolade. Evelein, Patrick and Fanny were all charming and helpful too.

The village of Callian is part of the Canton de Fayence which is located just west of Grasse and north west of Cannes. The canton de Fayence is an old area with villages dating back to year 1000. They were all founded by the Grimaldi family. There are five perched villages starting with Montauroux, Callian, Tourettes, Fayence and Seillans. The mountains in the north protect the area. To the south we have the Mediterranean sea. The views from the villages are stunning. There is the large lake Lac St. Cassian only 15 min drive. Here you can swim or rent boats. The town has a small marked and the local café. There are three restaurants all with good local food. There are many sights very close by. There is only 20 min drive to the coast with its beautiful beaches and bustling life. You can make excursions to St. Tropez and Monaco as well as Cannes. You can enjoy the quiet beautiful Provence as well as the fun of Coté d'Azur.
