About Edward Harland

I live and work on our farm here in France, where we grow organic vegetables. We moved here in 2002 to work on a small farm, and then decided to stay and create something of our own. My wife, myself and our two teenagers have all been working on restoring and developing this fantastic place into a comfortable and peaceful family home.

Edward Harland purchased this house in 2004

Why Edward Harland chose Roquebrune-sur-Argens

The property was an old vineyard, which had been left derelict for many years. It has plenty of land and space , with fantastic views all around , which is what enticed me to buy the place and restore the existing bastide...a monumental task which has really become something beautiful and satisfying. We love the area with its rugged terrain and rock formations. It also offers the conveniences of the nearby village and shopping areas, with great access to the beaches and motorway, which pleases my wife!

What makes this house unique

You will enjoy the rural beauty of the farm land, which gives the impression of being very remote. There are many attractions for nature lovers, ramblers and sportsmen, as well as entertainment at the nearby lake for the kids. The beautiful Argens river runs alongside part of the property, offering wonderful bird life and a tranquil canoe ride in the evening.

We also offer catering services!

Guestbook comments from the owner

A lovely traditional farmhouse ideally located for the coast and inland exploring. Much enjoyed by all with the bonus of a wide range of wildlife from hummingbird hawk moths to the star attraction, nightangales!

Thank you!

Sun in the South

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful area of France where there was plenty to do. Swimming and kayaking on the lakes, cycling around the area, visiting the local towns, seeing the fireworks at Cannes and so much more!!! The property was perfect for two families and had everything that you could possibly need. Beautiful gardens and plenty of space to sit out and a pool to relax around. Gorgeous views. Thank you.

Incredible week with friends

  • 5 of 5

8 of us rented Melinda's house in Roquebrun to celebrate my 30th birthday. It was absolutely perfect for our needs: comfortable, beautiful, relaxing, well situated. Everyone said when we arrived that the house is more beautiful than in the pictures-- it really is! We were able to take many daytrips during the week: to the Porquerolles, Nice, Gorges du Verdon, and Cassis. We also spent some time just hanging out by the pool, and our meals cooked at home on the grill were some of the highlights of the trip. All in all, an incredible trip that we will remember forever. Thank you Melinda and family!!!

Wonderful accomodation and great location.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the farmhouse in the last week in July.There were 5 adults, two teenagers and a 3 year old in on our trip.

It's a fantastic house and Edward and Melinda have done an amazing job of restoring it.

All the rooms were lovely and more than adequately equipped and there is aircon in most of the bedrooms.The kitchen has all the equipment you need and a great outside dining area with beer fridge and BBQ.

We loved the pool and garden space.We borrowed bikes and could have used the kayaks but were too comfortable around the pool.

The bakery is a nice 15 min walk away in town.

The location is great as there is a water sport lake 10 mins walk if that down the road, a river which is great for kayaking and lots of supermarkets a short drive away.

There is a mountain at the other end of the lake which is good for mountain bikes.

You are 20 mins away from the great beaches and an hours drive inland to the stunning Gorge Du Verdon.

A fantastic holiday and a hidden gem.

Breathtaking farmhouse in a planet of its own

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Ed and Melinda for a magnificent week in Bastide des Planets.

Ed and Melinda did the catering, decorating and hosting of our 40th birthday party

for 70 people in their enchanting glamp site close to the house. It really was the party of a lifetime. What a find! Ed and Melinda are friendly, helpful and worked tirelessly to organise the party and glamps for our guests.

Surrounded by a charming woodland, brimming with birdsong, on the banks of the Argens river.

This unique farmhouse is beautifully restored with views directly onto Roquebrune for the perfect sunset. Very comfortable, clean, full of character and well equipped, including BBQ, outdoor dining spaces, pool and garden, it exceeded our expectations.

There's so much to see and do here from kayaking, beaching, hiking, croquet, wining and dining or just lounging by the pool. An unforgettable week in a magical place, many thanks

What a fantastic find!

  • 5 of 5

This was ideal accommodation and area to celebrate our daughter's 30th birthday. There were 10 of us ranging in age from 2 to 56 and it was perfect for all of us.

The garden, house and pool provided lots of spacious and well equipped accommodation. The owners were extremely helpful and accommodating.

Definitely need a car to get to shops, beaches and other places.

Fantastic beaches 20 minutes away and other places of interest.

Definitely need mosquito spray and cream for the evenings.

We would not hesitate to recommend this place to our family and friends for a holiday in the South of France.

We spent many hours playing croquet, swimming, sunbathing and enjoying the garden.

Thanks for a lovely holiday.

John, Carolyn and family.

Fantastic Family Accomodation

  • 5 of 5

We're Two families with grand parents.Large beautiful garden with pool, BBQ area with fountain. The farmhouse was clean and renovated to a v. High standard. Cool during the hot day. Stone floors. Oozing character. Bedrooms were elegant and bathrooms to good standard and air conditioned which made sleeping easy. A family home with books games for children, Tv and all mod cons. Really private. Fantastic for two families. Kitchen equipt With everything you might need beautiful!!! A gem. The pictures don't do the place justice on the website. So much more to experience in the farmhouse. Good taste through out.. Thank you for such a memorable holiday and for all of the extras you provided for us. Definitely recommend to my other family and friends. They have been blown away by the photographs😲 The Pool was great to cool off and children played. Lidl 3 minutes by car nearby. Mossy spray needed for sitting out at night. Many thanks.

Special interest holidays:

We are interested in starting up painting and cookery courses for the off season months where we will offer two double bed and breakfast rooms or possibly a studio. The light here, as everyone knows is extraordinary and the spring and autumn periods are our favourites. That coupled with the glorious views and beauty of the surrounding countryside would make this a super experience.



to the beach takes 15 minutes depending on the time of day, longer in the summer. There is a choice of either St Aygulf or Les Issambres locally or further afield, 30 mins or so, St Maxime and St Raphael. St Tropez is 20 mins by boat from St Maxime, by far the best way of getting there in the summer months. Getting there early is a good tip but St Aygulf is the most spacious with long sandy stretches of beach, the water is clearer at Les Issambres, however, as the water is calmer.


Nice international airport is 45 mins by the A8 autoroute. Les Arcs and St Raphael are the nearest train stations for links from Paris. These are both 20 mins drive from Roquebrune. It takes roughly 8-10 hours to reach here from Calais, 762 miles. Toulon/Hyeres is 1 hour away.


Roquebrune village is 2km, St Maxime is 25 kms, Nice is 60 km, Les Issambres 15km, St Tropez 40km and Frejus 11km. Aix en Provence is an hour down the A8 autoroute.

Further Details:

The village of Roquebrune is 15 minutes walk where you will find an assortment of local markets, bakeries, restaurants. The Rocher of Roquebrune towers over the lake where you rent boats or water ski or just enjoy the scenery from the cafe restaurant.
