About Anna van Geuns

we are Dutch and we lived in SE Asia during a long time. Anna is a psychologist/ consultant, worked with organisations and lately in Indonesia with children, Arjen is a physics engineer, worked all around the world. We loved Provence, so in 2000 we bought our home in the beautiful area of the Haute Verdon. So many beautiful things so close by. Now we are retired, travel a lot, but enjoy everyday this small paradise. We bought our 'neighbours' in 2008. In 2013 we made the extension, and that's the house you may want to rent.

Anna van Geuns purchased this villa in 2013

Why Anna van Geuns chose Haut-Var - Verdon

In 2000 we decided to buy some property here, so we, by accident, passed by Aups. Gettng to know the area, meant for us fall in love with the area. So when we saw our 'dream'house the decision was easy, this would be our home. Everything is close by, and nearly everyday we say to eachother how happy we are to live here. Neighbours are only one time for sale, so when this was the case, we didn't think twice. Beautiful grounds, all kinds of different trees, great view. We bought the grounds with a small cabanon, which is now the 'old part'. We built the extension in 2013 so you will be in a brand new house. We made the house, as we would live in it. We love the environment, we love the view and the light & sun shining into the house in the morning. We love sitting on the veranda in the morning with some coffee, we love the lappool, to swim or relax, and to take a walk through the woods from the house. We love the low light shining on the olive trees; we love the village, with the cafe, with the markets, the big old platan trees. We love to take a swim on a warm late afternoon in the Lake des St Croix, or in autumn, the beautiful provencal light and of course after this 'exercise' a nice beer or a rose.

What makes this villa unique

You will enjoy lots of things: the large veranda, which is a meeting point for everybody, the green patio where you can relax, without being seen, the pool with it lovely green-grey colour, the spacious kitchen where you can make your gourmet dinner, or just some pasta bolognaise for the family, the big american fridge, the couch in the living room, where you can lie down and take a nap, the loungers under the olive trees, the great big shower heads, the beds and sheets: they re good!, in short, inside and outside you will love the house and we re sure you will have a great holiday here !

Just fantastic

  • 5 of 5

We have to Aups several times before but the usual place we go to was unavailable. What a result! We found this place instead. It was heaven. New build, everything worked, all the mod cons, delightful owners who live next door, if you need anything. Lots to do nearby and the perfect place to explore from. Will definitely be returning. Very comfortable and a wonderful swimming pool too. Really liked the way that there was a kitchen garden at one end. Highly recommended.

The house is about half an hour drive from one of the most beautiful European canyons, les Gorges du Verdon, with close by the unreal opaque lake St Croix. you can swim, sail, go in a pedalo or electric boat, dive from the rocks, and even hang gliding. Great villages to visit in the surroundings with their markets, like Lorgues (20 minutes), Sillans la Cascade (10 minutes) with its waterfalls, Cotignac (20 minutes), Villecroze (10 minutes) with its park and caves and TourTour (15 minutes) the ' village in the sky'. Nice, Cannes, Marseille all reachable in 1/1.5 hours driving. You can even go to Italy, to the famous St Remo market, a little over 2 hours driving, worthwhile! And of course there is always the beach in Frejus or St Maxime, or La Ramatuelle, the beach of St Tropez.

Enjoy the Provencal beautiful light, the lavender, the almond and fig trees, the olive trees and the smell of all the provencal herbs. Aups is a beautiful medieval very lively village, with lots of shopping streets, and even in the old village roman parts. Provencal market twice a week, and in wintertime the truffle market on Thursday morning. Lots of brocantes, vides greniers etc in aups and the surrounding villages.

You can bike (2 bikes available) and undertake the most wonderful walks, in the Gorges du Verdon, but as well around the house or from the village.

Golf driving range is in Salernes (15 minutes), soon there will be a 9 holes golf course, many famous golf courses in the vicinity (all about 1 hour drive)
