With the Mediterranean 50mins away, Marseilles and Nice airports around an 1 & 1/4 hour driving time. There is a fully tuned Piano at the property as well which is available for any pianists that stay.

Daily markets in various towns and villages around make your stay perfect, the main local market in Lorgues on Tuesdays is a must!

Entrecasteaux has a good selection of bars and restaurants complete

With its own bakery and butchers just minutes walk away from the property.

Parking is ample and free.

The village is the friendliest around and get ready to be greeted by everyone you pass in the street!

About Paul Handley

I am a music tutor, pianist, composer,and producer.

My main residence is in London, UK.

I discovered the Var region and Provence over 25 years ago, and have been back and forth ever since.

I fell in love with Entrecasteux and Rue Sous Barry in particular and was lucky enough to find a unique property there.

Paul Handley purchased this house in 2015

Why Paul Handley chose Entrecasteaux

Exquisite, unique, charming Provence-style property, with wider and spacious living accommodation than most typical older properties.

The location is a short walk from both the village center, and the river.

Also, non-restrictive parking is nearby, with also the convenience of being able to drive to the property itself to unload and load.

What makes this house unique

Combining the 'antique' charm of a 1700's property with modern conveniences,

an updated state of the art kitchen, a large bathroom plus an ensuite attached to one of the bedrooms.

Best Easter break ever!

  • 5 of 5

I can only describe the location as true paradise, the house itself provided a most relaxing stay, and it keeps cool on warmer days!

The property has been restored to a lovely traditional and sympathetic condition, and it is obvious the owner takes great pride in his lovely house.

The location provides the base for the most relaxing holiday, with lovely walks in mountains, following rivers etc, whilst still being conveniently located to access airports and the coast.

The very best of Provence surrounds you and there is a market on in many nearby villages and towns on different days of the week.

Entrecasteaux has a bakery, butchers, general store, and a newsagents, together with Bistos, a bar and a great pizzeria, so no need to drive anywhere else!

The chateaux is well worth a visit, there are guided tours for 10 euros on Sunday afternoons.

I would highly recommend this property to anyone!
