About the property

4 bedrooms, 1 bathrooms/WC, 1 bathroom, 2 shower rooms/WC, 1 separate WC

This secluded villa is set in peaceful surroundings on a hill within walking distance of the charming village of Tourtour. The villa enjoys the panoramic views of Les Maures and most evenings beautiful sunsets.

The location is ideal for sightseeing with an array of pretty typical Provencal villages within easy reach.

Both house and swimming pool boasts panoramic views of the Provencal countryside and are set in 10,000 m2 (2.5 acres) of very private grounds. A number of steps lead down to a large pool (13 x 6 m) - completely fenced in, and below the pool an olive grove of 70 olive trees. The setting is very peaceful and there is a pleasant covered terrace with BBQ for al fresco dining.

On the ground floor are a spacious living/dining room with fire-place, a kitchen, one double bedroom, two twin bedrooms, one bathroom with WC, one bathroom, one shower room with WC (all en suite), and one separate WC. On the first floor there is a double bedroom with an en suite shower room with WC.

Tourtour: Tourtour, a medieval perched village nicknamed 'le villagage dans le ciel' (the village in the sky). It has a magnificent view out across the surroundings countryside. The hillsides are all forested, and you can identify distant lower villages with the help of the 'table d'orientation', and if it's clear you can see the Maures, the Luberon, Ste. Baume and the Ste. Victoire near Aix-en-Provence.

The village is picturesque and the square is well shaded by plane and olive trees. There is a 17th century oil mill in the village and a 'lavoir'. The village centre also includes an imposing 16th century chateau with massive round towers at each corner (one dating to 12rh century). There are several nice bars and restaurants on the village square.

Nearby villages: Nearby villages worth visiting are Salernes (two super markets and Sunday market), Villecroze (horse riding), Flayosc (nice restaurants), Aups, (Wednesday market) and Lorgues (Tuesday market and tennis courts).

Grand Canyon of Europe: Gorges de Verdon & Lac St. Croix is great for water sports (37 km).

Lac St. Croix is a magnificent turquoise lake - it is actually a dam which was created in 1975, built on the Verdon river. Sports: boat, canoe, peddalo, sailboard and horse riding.

The Gorges de Verdon is deep, compact wild and beautiful. From Castellane to the village of Rougons, the Verdon River flows clear and swift, and the road follows along the banks.

View too good to be true

  • 5 of 5

La Cabiscolle ticked all the boxes for us:large pool, quiet location within walking distance of a village, generous accommodation, unspoilt views and with wifi Internet.

We were a group of 8 adults covering 3 generations. The convenient layout of the ground floor bedrooms, kitchen and living room, all opening onto their own terraced areas, allowed everyone their own personal space and beautiful view. The Provencal terracotta flooring throughout is attractive, practical and in keeping with the furnishings. You are walking into a home at La Cabiscolle, not a show house. It offers a comfortable, relaxed feel, is flooded with natural light and has more than the basic necessities for your holiday.Two of the bathrooms have been recently refurbished and plans are in place to renovate the kitchen.

The agent who oversees the letting of the villa was very helpful and prompt in dealing with the odd niggles that arose. She took more than just a detached business interest in the letting and was most approachable, informative and understanding.

We all loved our stay at La Cabiscolle. It's a must for those seeking an 'away-from-it-all' holiday and who dream of ending the day sipping a glass of wine outdoors before a wood-burning barbeque fire and magical sunsets.

A very special place

  • 5 of 5

This comfortable villa sits conveniently close to the amazing village of Tourtour, 'the village in the sky' and to the charming little town of Salernes. These provide all the eating, market and shopping opportunities we could want. Draguignan, a short drive away has the added facilities afforded by a large business centre and the 'Cote d'Azur' is an hour away.

In spite of our many visits to La Cabiscolle, we remain amazed at the panoramic views from the covered terrace towards Marseille and the coast which vary so much from day to day. We have enjoyed many of the villa's special features: the balcony and air-conditioning in the master bedroom offer a real sense of pampering whilst the excellent kitchen is a haven for a busy cook catering for seven discerning guests. The eating and sitting areas are well furnished and really comfortable whether the temperature is 30 degrees or cool enough to enjoy the wonderful open fire.

The large, well-maintained pool has to be a major attraction and provides a strong focus for our holiday. Looking out over the villa's extensive grounds and the olive grove seals it for us. This is a fantastic holiday venue for us, family and friends.

Very relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

We were immensely pleased on arrival at “La Cabiscolle”, the villa was well equipped and comfortable, and it felt like home from home immediately. The house has all you would need with plenty of space for us and is tastefully decorated. A beautiful garden, a well maintained pool (which is not always the case!) and the panoramic views of “Les Maures” from the terrace provide peaceful and relaxing rest. We enjoyed watching beautiful sunsets in the terrace with a glass or two of the delicious local wine. Local restaurants located in stunning medieval villages and olive orchards situated in beautiful countryside make the whole area a place you are never bored with. The nearest village (Tourtour) has some lovely local shops and a small supermarket. All in all we had a very relaxing holiday and we would love to come back!

Fabulous place

  • 5 of 5

My family has used the house during a long break with a group of 8 friends. The villa was excellent as it had a large kitchen, dining and living room area that accommodated us all easily and had great facilities.

Although the weather wasn't great when we visited we still enjoyed the pool and BBQ area, spending a large amount of time outside enjoying the amazing views of the mountains in the distance.

Nearby villages were all picturesque and other sightseeing areas were within easy reach.

All of my friend were so happy staying there, it was comfortable even with 12 people in the house. We all worked together to make wonderful meals that we enjoyed every evening. Everyone felt at home and totally comfortable. After 2 weeks, no one wanted to leave.
