Villa des Cyprés is a beautiful, detached Villa at the end of a long private road with private swimming pool standing in wooded grounds of 3000m2. In a rural setting, but not isolated and with uninterrupted south-facing views of pine and oak forests to the Massif des Maures, Villa des Cyprés is a perfect place to relax and enjoy all that Provence has to offer. The 160m2 accommodation is arranged over 2 floors with a mezzanine entrance hall; on the ground floor is a large lounge and separate kitchen with utility room, and a double bedroom with en-suite shower, separate bath and toilet and separate dressing room. All downstairs rooms are south-facing with fantastic views and have French windows onto the terracing and 10x5m private swimming pool. Upstairs there are 2 south-facing double bedrooms (1 with balcony), a bathroom with individual shower and separate bath. There is also a separate toilet upstairs.
Villa des Cyprés: Villa des Cyprés is situated at the end of a private road and was finished in 2008. All the building works are to an extremely high standard. Outside on the upper terrace there is a provate swimming pool and landscaped garden with with Italian Cypresses and Olive trees and many different herbs and plants including lavender, sage, rosemary, box hedge, lillies and clematis. There are also steps down to a lower terrace and to the grounds below the house where there is wild thyme, sage and rosemary and other herbs to add a little extra to your cuisine. Around the the other outdoor areas of the house there are many other herbs and plants including Oleanders and Oak. There are several beautiful walks from the Villa around the area through pine and oak forests and vineyards, haven for birds and other wildlife including boar and deer.
The views to the South are wonderful and, whilst the house is not isolated it's not overlooked. We love the old beams in all the main rooms, and the terracotta tiles from Salernes that cover the floor, giving it a traditional Provencal feel (no white tiles for us!) whilst at the same time having new modern conveniences. The pool is right next to the forma garden, terrace and house so you can easily keep and eye on children. It is so quiet at night and when the stars are out (most nights) the Milky Way is amazing. The local wine from the co-operative isn't to bad either!
Golf: There are 2 beautiful golf courses within 35 minutes drive of the Villa.
Both courses are set in rolling Provencal countryside with beautiful views and lined with pine and oak trees.
Golf de Barbaroux near Cabasse and Brignoles is the more generous course with fairways designed to bring your ball into play, but there are several water holes and it is the more hilly. A buggy is recommended.
St Endriol is a shorter course but there is no room for error. Both courses have websites for additional information and contact details.
