Why Jean-Paul et Myriam DEVAL chose Callas

After having lived several years in the heart of the village of Callas, we acquired this magnificent land of 6000 m² and we built this house (purely Provencal architecture) by putting a lot of ourselves there: this house looks like us.

It is a daily happiness to be able to live in such a setting, in a calm environment, far from traffic lanes. Our grown children having left the nest we therefore decided to retreat in a smaller house and to rent this one in the summer.

A pool with a view!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely stay in what really feels like a home, rather than a gite. Beautifully furnished and decorated, with all mod cons, and a stunning view of the town and mountains from the garden and pool. Just a few minutes walk to the bakery and good restaurants. Callas is a friendly town, attractive but not touristy. Lots to do in the local area, we got some some good advice from Jean-Paul and Myriam, who were really welcoming. A fantastic first visit to Provence!

Great holiday!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from 2 weeks in this lovely house where we had a super holiday. The view is fantastic, whether from the house overlooking the wooded hills or from the pool of the pretty village of Callas we never tired of just looking out. The house was very clean and well equipped. Callas itself is small but within an easy 10 minute walk or 2 minute bike ride to get bread on a morning or for a meal out at night. The 4 restaurants are OK but nothing special but were nice enough and convenient. Lots of local tracks and paths for walks and bike rides although it was too hot to venture too seriously into the hills. We really enjoyed the nearby Gorge de Pennefort for refreshing dips into the pools. The house is also very conveniently situated to venture further afield - easy to get to the coast or Gorges du Verdon , local lakes or one of the many local villages. Jean-Paul & Myriam were excellent hosts who were friendly and helpful with local knowledge and tips and were very tolerant and helpful in compensating for our almost non existent French. We would certainly recommend the property. Merci beaucoup Jean-Paul & Myriam!

If you want to see Provence, this is your place

  • 5 of 5

If you want the real deal, we can highly recommend this house as your base for visiting Provence. The location is perfect with plenty of attractions within 90 minutes drive - classic hill-top villages (Seillans, Tourrettes, Tourtour, Chateaudouble), wineries, Gorges du Verdon for hiking and the Riviera (St Tropez, Antibes). Add to this, the village of Callas which is a cosy 5 minute walk away with a few local restaurants, a friendly tabac, corner deli and boulangerie - this is genuine France without the hype or tourists. We stayed for three weeks and weren't ready to leave - we loved it !

Jeanpaul was an excellent host - with a warm welcome, good spoken English and plenty of advice on what to do in the area. The house is the old family home with a very relaxed pool area, great patio (with views southwards and to the village centre) and a good living area indoors for the off-season traveller. The bed was a comfortable double (not a given in France) and a reasonable shower / bathroom.

Thanks to Jeanpaul and Myriam for a great stay - we will return when we need another fix of our favourite bit of Provence.

What a beautiful place to stay. The house is just what we wanted with everything needed for a comfortable holiday.

The! What a view, lovely hills to the south and a spectacular view of the village to the west.

We went to the coast a couple of times, about 45 minutes drive. Port grimaud (little venice) is fantastic, we took a boat over the bay to St Tropez. We spent another day on the beach at St Agay (near Frejus), which was great, take some shelter with you!

The village of Callas is about ten minutes walk away, a lovely walk every morning for baguettes and croissants. There are four restaurants in the village, three of which we used, all were good. Our favourite was La Grotte Italiane.

Locally, try the Gorge De Penafort, there's a free car park, go down to the bottom corner, scramble down under the bridge and follow the trail. Well worth it, plenty of pools to swim in.

Finally, the hosts, truly lovely people, always available to offer advice and help, while leaving you to get on with your holiday.

Going to France next year, but there are too many of us for this house! Will definitely return sooner rather than later.

Merci beaucoup Jean-Paul et Myriam

Owner's Response: Merci Steve pour votre appréciation. Nous avons été très heureux de vous accueillir. Vous étiez 4 adultes et 3 enfants : c'est la capacité d'accueil maximum de notre maison. Nous sommes donc vraiment désolés de ne pouvoir vous accueillir de nouveau l'année prochaine comme vous en avez manifesté le désir si vous êtes plus nombreux. Peut être une autre année... Ce sera avec plaisir.

Bon séjour dans le Var

  • 4 of 5

La maison est agréable, le paysage avec vue sur les montagnes et le village, la piscine à 28 degrés orientée au sud, pas de vis à vis, une bonne collection de DVD et de livres. Seul point noir, mais c’est la région qui veut ça, les moustiques.

Owner's Response: Les six départements de la région Provence Alpes Côte d'Azur (tout comme la moitié sud de la France) ont été placés en 2018 en vigilance rouge concernant les moustiques. Ce phénomène exceptionnel a été entretenu par une météo favorisante (des orages presque tous les jours en juillet combinés à de fortes chaleurs). Toutes nos chambres sont équipées de moustiquaires coulissantes sur les huisseries.
