Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday villa in Brignoles region - Villa d'Andriou

4 bedrooms sleeps 8, 2 en-suite shower rooms, main bathroom, modern kitchen

This new Provençal property is situated on the edge of the beautiful village of Cotignac. The stunning villa is tastefully furnished throughout and has two king size double and two twin single rooms with a south facing heated swimming pool, all set in over one acre of grounds. The pool area is well equipped with comfortable sun loungers, parasols, gas barbecue and a covered terrace with traditional Provençal furniture for alfresco dinning.

The house has a well equipped kitchen with range cooker and American style fridge freezer for the all important supply of iced water and in the utility room a washing machine and tumble dryer are available for your use. The immaculate interior includes a large HD flat screen TV with UK Satellite TV channels and PlayStation 3. WiFi Internet, personal safe and cot are also provided.

Surrounding Area: Cotignac is a vibrant, friendly village with many shops, cafés, bars and restaurants. On Tuesdays a large Provençal market dominates the main Square. The village lies 45 mins to 1 hour between the beautiful beaches of the French Riviera and the Gorges du Verdon, making it an ideal base to explore from. The nearest beaches to reach are around Ste Maxime and Frejus (50mins) both with Aquaparks for the children. Drive south across the Maures hills to reach Grimaud, Port Grimaud and St Tropez (1hr). North, the unspoilt Lac St Croix (45mins) is a must, with swimming and many water sports on its turquoise water. Further on the dramatic Gorges du Verdon (50mins), France's own Grand Canyon, has canoeing, rafting and the most spectacular scenery. Nearby places to visit include the Abbey du Thoronet, the waterfall at Sillans-la-Cascade, the Chateau at Entrecasteaux and the many picturesque villages such as Villecroze and Toutour 'the village in the sky'.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The villa was great. Larger in life than in the photos, a great pool (much appreciated in the hot afternoons). I don’t think that the photos do it justice.

Absolutely stunning Villa ... just perfect

  • 5 of 5

I spent a wonderful weeks holiday in this villa with my husband and two grown up daughters.

The villa is stunning with everything you could possibly need and more. It is very well maintained, spacious and so comfortable.

The pool area and patio are amazing with great views. You could not fail to enjoy lovely relaxing days and evenings here.

Cotignac too is a beautiful area and we enjoyed a couple of great meals in local restaurants.

I would have no hesitation in recommending this villa ... it is just perfect and most certainly has the wow factor.

Spring break in Villa d'Andriou

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Villa d'Andriou in March. Although not in high season, the weather was perfectly warm (15-20 deg), great for exploring and meals on the sunny terrace.

The villa is spotlessly clean and well equipped, (ample towels, hair dryers etc in rooms) the kitchen especially well stocked.

The local village of Cotignac is lovely, with great restaurants and cafes, the inhabitants friendly and charming. They have a market on Tuesday which is great for local produce - we also managed to visit the market in Aix on the same morning with no trouble (50 mins away). As a morning ritual, we would make an early morning dash into the village to pick up lovely fresh bread and croissants from the bakery.

The villa's central location was great for touring and we managed to visit Cannes, Antibes and the stunning Gorges du Verdon quite easily.

This has to be one of the cleanest, well equipped, comfortable villas we have stayed in and really shows the care the owners have taken. Highly recommended.

Fantastic, Amazing, WOW !!

  • 5 of 5

This villa is the best we have ever stayed in. It was clean, comfortable and beautifully equipped and furnished. We wanted for nothing. The amazing pool and pool area were a godsend, especially as the temperatures soared to 39 degrees C!!

The villa layout is perfect for families with teenagers or a larger party holidaying together.

The owners and Jill the manager are excellent to deal with and extremely efficient.

Cotignac is a lovely village with fantastic Boulangerie and Patisseries, and the shopkeepers are really friendly and helpful to us Brits!

We would definitely return and highly recommend this villa.

Fabulous relaxing holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a fabulous stay at Villa D'Andriou. The Villa itself is luxurious and comfortable. Everything has been very well thought out. The bedrooms are large and airy and really tastefully decorated, the bathrooms had a luxurious feel with the added bonus of having towels provided! There were clear instructions on how everything worked and, the property itself was immaculate .The welcome bottle of Rose was also much enjoyed! We wanted a relaxing holiday as we were only away for a week and we really did manage to relax, lovely afternoons were spent by the pool! The village of Cotignac itself is beautiful, lots of restaurants to choose from, the market on Tuesdays is well worth a visit as it fills the whole village and gave the opportunity to try the local produce, olives, cheese and wine were amongst some of the tastings on offer! The Villa is in an area that is surrounded by impressive Vineyards, with plenty of opportunities to try the local wines. To be honest though we spent most of our holiday enjoying family time by the pool! I would have no hesitation in recommending this Villa and hope to return very soon!
