It combines all modern comforts to create a luxurious 5 bedroom family house. Outside a 11m x 5m swimming pool, has plenty of sun loungers on the large paved terrace. You can dine underneath the covered terrace adjacent to the outdoor Kitchen or take a drink next to the pool under the gazebo. Inside is traditionally decorated and furnished incorporating the Provençal style with a fully equipped kitchen, living/TV room,open fire and 5 comfortable bedrooms and 3 traditional style bathrooms/shower rooms. The house is set between the sea and the mountains; it is the perfect location to enjoy a holiday in an idyllic rural setting, yet still only a 5 minute walk to the village square and not far from the Villages of Tourtour, Lorgues, Bargemon. It is the ideal base for exploring all that Provence has to offer.

About The Owner

Li Rawette was built nearly 10 years ago, we feel in love with the view and were attracted by the peacefulness of the place. Most of the time, the only noise is the church bells.

We consider the house as a family home and enjoy the convenience of its location,as we are near the sea or the mountains in no time, but still the village is authentic and has kept his rural charm.

Why The Owner chose Ampus

This area of Provence is amazing - truly authentic with picturesque villages, olive groves, truffles, lavender fields Ampus is surrounded by thriving markets, and Chateaux selling exquisite Rose. Because of its altitude ( 600m), it never feels too hot in the summer evenings.

What makes this villa unique

It is a comfortable authentic family home with stunning views and proximity to all the amenities. Please have a look at our reviews to see what our guests have to say

Belles vacances dans belle maison

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons passé une belle semaine de vacances à Ampus. La maison est spacieuse pour 8 personnes et la cuisine très bien équipée.

Le village est à 5 mn à pied, très pratique pour chercher le pain du matin ou de petites courses.

La location est idéalement située pour organiser des visites sans trop faire de kilomètres : villages typiques de Tourtour, Chateaudouble... ; sortie en canoé ; visites de caves...

La piscine est bienvenue pour les jours de fortes chaleurs.

Great villa in fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

This is a fabulous place. The villa is very well appointed and comfortable. The quiet village of Ampus is a short walk away - a small shop, cafe and boulangerie. We enjoyed having supper al fresco watching the village lights in the distance. The countryside is spectacular - stunning views as you drive from one hill-top village to another. The coast isn't too far away, but to avoid the crowds head inland to the Verdon Gorge and the Lac de Saint Croix. Highly recommended.

Beautiful Location. Perfect Relaxation.

  • 4 of 5

Li Rawette is a lovely, large villa set facing South with lovely views of Ampus and the surrounding hills. The villa was a great place to base 3 generations for a family holiday.

The large pool (deep enough for diving), the table tennis table, the in-house board games and the excellent wi-fi kept the teenagers content allowing the grown-ups time for terrace time and leisurely evening meals in the outside kitchen.

Ampus is a charming and friendly place with a good baker, bar and a little shop with one of everything it was just a shame the restaurants within walking distance seemed to operate random opening hours in the height of summer. This was more than made up for by the abundance of excellent restaurants within a 20 minute drive.

We were also pleasantly surprised by the beauty of the Var. Local villages, the watersports of the Lac de St Croix, the Gorge de Verdon and local market days easily filled a 2 week break for the days away from the house.

A good time was had by all stretching from 9 to 74!

An ideal villa for a lovely holiday

  • 5 of 5

Everything in the villa is exactly as appears in the photos, sparkling clean and with fresh linen, all the cooking utensils you could want, plus books, games and ping pong etc. Lovely area. My energetic grandchildren climbed down to the dried river bed below the bridge and climbed up the ravine until they found a crystal clear pool to swim in and a waterfall.

The mountain scenery is magnificent and the hot sun down on the coast is tempered by cool breezes at the villa.

Beautiful and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

We were all so happy with the villa, the location is so beautiful and peaceful. There were 10 of us and we took trips to the coast (st maxime) and rented a boat on a beautiful lake nearby. There are gorgeous old towns nearby (tourtour) with fantastic restaurants. We stayed in some nights, had BBQ's and lovely french wine. We will definitely be going back.

a little gem in the Var

  • 5 of 5

My love for the South of France is unconditional...and now, my love for the Var region is complete. We all fell in love with Li Rawette, it is a lovely house, with a rustic and homely feel, taking us through the authentic provençal experience for 10 days. We loved the layout, the pool, and the views are absolutely stunning, day and night. There are heavenly and very picturesque villages in the area, that deserve a visit or 2, many restaurants offering exquisite food and dazzling wines! The beaches are 45 minutes away, so needless to sat that a car is de rigueur!

In France there is a saying, "joie de vivre", meaning, enjoy your life and relish every pleasure...and so we did! and we are looking forward to go back next year!
