Each bedroom has an en-suite bath – and one has a hamman style shower.
There is a washer and dryer and parking space in the driveway for multiple cars.
We have a crib and high chair to accommodate little ones.
Many guests love the big spacious patio, which is accessible from both the living room and two bedrooms – from here there is a beautiful view of the surrounding vineyards and of course the sea. The patio has two tables – so dining outdoors is the norm.
A few feet away is a large infinity pool –
Extra cost for heating the pool is 250 euros / week.
also looking out on the Mediterranean. We have many lounge chairs, and a favorite pastime is sitting by the pool and sipping rose.
We welcome guests throughout the year, and especially look for long-term rentals in the winter and spring, during which time we offer special rates for long term stays.

THE VILLA –
While the town center is a bustling place, our home is located in the peaceful countryside – just 4 km (2 miles) outside of the village center.
When you enter our private drive, you will pass vineyards, olive and fig trees – and then come to our flower farm where we grow a variety of plants but are specialist in Muguet (a small white lily that we harvest each spring). After passing our “bastide” (large stone farmhouse) over 400-years old, you will climb a small road leading up a hill to the rental villa. We call our home "Oliviers" – due to the abundance of Olive trees on the property.
The house is very private – as it is at the end of the road. It was constructed in 2007, and has thick plaster walls, which allow it to be cool in the summer and warm in the winter. In additional we have radiant heat to guard against a winter chill. The roof is a mosaic of multi-colored clay tiles – typical of homes in this region.
The kitchen (with dishwasher, electric oven, cooktop and microwave) was designed in an open style so you can see into the large dining and living while you prepare meals. We want our guests to be comfortable – and have equipped the kitchen with all the small appliances you would find in a typical permanent home. We have plates and glasses to accommodate large family gatherings.
The house has five private bedrooms, plus a sleeping loft – and can accommodate twelve people… but it has been set up in such a way that certain rooms can be closed off, and just the ground floor used, so it can be cozy for a couple.
Great place, the view is sick.
Laurence is extremely friendly.
Your stay will be a blast.
Comments for improvement: extra bottle of gas to be stored somewhere as a back up for the amazing barbecue ;-)
"Ein wunderschönes, liebevoll eingerichtetes Haus in ruhiger Lage. Ideal zum Erholen, wobei man in wenigen Auto-Minuten im Zetrum des Geschehens ist. Die Vermieter sind ausgesprochen nett und waren sehr um unser Wohl besorgt ohne aufdringlich zu werden. wir kommen gerne wieder."

Sanary-sur-Mer is blessed with the best weather – we proudly boast 325 days of sunshine. The temperatures are more moderate than other areas of Provence as we benefit from proximity to the sea, and the occasional blowing of the “Mistral”.
Sanary is alive with activity throughout the year, including theater, concerts, and art exhibitions. There is an opera in Toulon, just 15-minute drive from our house, and another in Marseille, 30 minutes.
In the center of town there is also miniature golf, and a beautiful old fashion working carousel along with rides and playground designed for little ones. Every morning the Marché (open air market) is open and vendors bring locally grown fruit, vegetables and provincial specialties. Visitors love the fresh goat cheese, which is made locally. Cepes (also known as porcini mushrooms) are found in the region and move into the markets in the fall. In winter you can buy truffles and the springtime brings local wild asparagus. Each of the villages in Var and the surrounding department, Bouche de Rhone, has its own market day and distinctive market. You can spend weeks going around to each and finding your favorites.
Have you dreamed of living in the south of France?
Does your idea of paradise include starting each day with a flaky butter croissant, shopping for local food in outdoor fresh markets, experiencing a clear blue sky with constant sunshine while walking under olive trees? Or do you prefer visiting world class wineries and tasting rich full reds or perhaps a cold rose would better fit with the day’s sunshine?
If Yes… then we invite you to come to Provence and experience true French country life, by renting our Mediterranean sea-view home which is totally peaceful, and yet right next to the vibrant village of Sanary-sur-Mer with so much to offer.
The region is famous for Bandol and Cassis wines. Within a 20-minute drive you can visit over 40 wineries; most offer tours and tastings. Sanary also has a local wine cooperative where farmers, not large enough for their own label, bring their wine to be processed and sold… you can buy wine by the liter (about 2 euros per liter) and bring it home in a plastic jug, just like the locals.
Naturally we have an abundance of Boulangerie’s – more than 10 in our village. Each will tempt you with their baguettes and pastries – and if you like crispy bread just ask if the bread “parle” (speaks). The town is filled with restaurants – many specializing in Bouillabaisse. There also is a lovely restaurant set in the midst of the famous vineyards of Domaine Terrabrune, which is walking distance from our house. You can never go hungry in Sanary.
If you enjoy shopping, you’ll be happy to browse in the clothing and gift boutiques.
