Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday villa in Bandol - MAS DE LA COLLINE

A well protected self-catering rental of 230 sqm, 5 bedrooms for 2 - 10 persons

On the heights of Bandol, superb Farmhouse of character with heated swimming pool and fairytale sea view on the Gulfs of Six Fours, Sanary and Bandol. Protected by a splendid pine forest, Mas de la Colline breathes peace, calm and the softness of living. Once installed on the immense terrace, you will forget the daily routine to dive into this magic scenery, you will impregnate yourselves with the typical Provencal perfume of dry pine needles. Built on a land of 11' 000 m2, the Farmhouse occupies a total surface of 230 m2 and proposes you a large living/dining room with its Provençal chimney, an entirely equipped kitchen and laundry-room, 5 bedrooms, 1 dressing room, 3 independent bathrooms and 2 WC. Furthermore you will have 3 terraces laid out over the entire length of the Farmhouse facing the sea. One of them is covered and allows a direct access to the kitchen. A true haven of peace at arms length from the most famous tourist places of the region & Golf course Dolce Frégate.

About Karyn Vermast-Bissuel

I am originally from Provence and Mas de la Colline was another step towards returning back to my home turfs.

What was first a hobby with our first Mas in Le Castellet, became a profession with the acquisition of Mas de la Colline. Renovating houses is one of my passions.

Our son is another one. He is a very lively little boy and likes to visit Mas de la Colline from time to time.

What I like most about what I'm doing are the many encounters it allows. Meeting our guests and seeing them happy during their holidays gives me great satisfaction !

Karyn Vermast-Bissuel purchased this villa in 2007

Why Karyn Vermast-Bissuel chose Toulon region

If I had to design a house, I would do it the Mas de la Colline way. If I had to choose a place to build it, it would be where Mas de la Colline is !

What makes this villa unique

Very nice architecture combined with the breathtaking view in an absolute quiet and romantic place.

Perfect place for a holiday

  • 5 of 5

Mas de la Colline proved to be an excellent choice for our summer vacation. The location, high up above Bandol is stunning and the new swimming pool is superb; so much so that we never once dipped our toes in the Med during our whole two weeks there! The house is well appointed and the external dining arrangements on the terrace made every meal a pleasure. The owners were very helpful at all times - we would certainly consider returning for a future holiday.

Fantastic holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We were an adult group staying for 8 nights at the end of March 16. The house is charming, very well equipped and in a fantastic location, remote but that wasn't a problem for us, with amazing views.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, it suited us well because we prefer to eat "dinner party style" in the evenings, at home relaxed and enjoying the fantastic food and wine we were able to buy from the local suppliers and larger supermarkets which are conveniently located close by (about 10 minutes drive).

We visited Bandol, Marseille, Saint Tropez, local golf course and wine tasting. We did try the swimming pool, it was maybe a little too early in the year for a comfortable swim but nevertheless provides a beautiful setting with a great sun trap on the sunnier days.

We would thoroughly recommend and definitely consider staying here again should we return to the area.

absolutely a dream

  • 5 of 5

When we first drove down the driveway and landed on what appeared to be a dream, we had to pinch ourselves, twice. This home has everything you need to have a perfect, relaxing stay: view (stunning), pool (sublime), outdoor setting (perfect), home (full of character and superb style). We are a picky family, and this vacation stay surpassed all of our needs, wants, and desires. We had everything we needed in one place. Rarely needed to leave the premises.

Nous revenons chaque année dans ce coin de paradis! Mas typique tout en pierre et une vue à couper le souffle. Grand confort, prestations de qualité et accueil chaleureux. Intimité et calme absolu à la lisière de la pinède. Nombreux restaurants, glaciers sur Sanary et Bandol et des excursions en mer pour visiter les calanques. Cadre exceptionnel que nous recommandons vivement.

Perfect holiday in Provence

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I and our 4 children aged between 7 and 12 years old spent a week at le Mas in April. The house is in a quiet location at the top of a hill with a breathtaking view. The view and the surrounding wilderness get slowly into you and have an incredibly relaxing effect. The house blends nicely with the landscape and has an incredible feel good factor.The house interior is charming with a mix of traditional and modern features, fully equipped and spacious. The pool and poolside are fantastic! There are also lots of great places to visit in the area. The owners and staff were very responsive to our requests. All in all this was the perfect holiday. Definitely recommend.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for this nicely written review. It's a testimonial that in early April the charms of Mas de la Colline and our beautiful Region are already attractive. The spring season is definitely an interesting period for visiting the Provence sea side. Nature is flourishing, tourist attractions are open and well accessible and bathing at Mas de la Colline is a pleasure due to the pool heating. Regarding the equipment of the villa, dear future guest, please be informed that starting this season, you'll benefit from a Nespresso machine and a docking station for listening music via iPhone or iPod (can be used inside the villa or on the terrace).

An amazing stay @ Mas de la colline

  • 5 of 5

Stayed there 7 days with 3 other couples of friends. This villa is very well located on a charming hill. Not far from Bandol city center and beaches.

Rooms are very comfortable and clean. Appliances are in great condition and the swimming pool area is just awesome !!

Environment is unique with breathtaking views on the sea, especially at night time where you can see all lights from nearby villages.

Definitely worth it !

Villa would be perfect with air-conditioning system, but it's probably because I am used to living with air-con all year round...

Thx for this lovely stay !

Will be back !

Owner's Response: Many thanks for this nice review! We discussed the question whether or not to install an air conditioning system thoroughly and came to the conclusion that we prefer to cool the house the natural way - the way the Mas were always cooled down here in the South: - thick stone walls - well insulated roof - shutters closed during day time - shutters and windows opened during the night Moreover the house is equipped with various fans (ceiling fans and fans on feet) and mosquito nets protecting our guests from unwished intruders during the night. In summer at La Colline, the outside temperature at night usually cools down to 21 -23 degrees, allowing a nice refreshment of the house.
