Le Parc aux Paquerettes (Daisy Park) is a beautiful country house set in 3 acres of private gardens and woodland close to the lovely hilltop villages of Callian and Fayence in the Var. The grounds are completely flat and offer a wonderful playground for children and adults alike. There is a wide variety of different trees including oak, pear, conifers and pines. The house was built right in the middle of a large plot to ensure it remains cool in the summer and warm in the winter. The property was comprehensively refurbished in 2010 using top quality fittings, including the installation of a new kitchen, new bathrooms and full re-decoration. The main living area is open plan with the hallway, kitchen, breakfast bar, dining room and lounge all inter-connected. The eclectic mix of furniture was mostly sourced from local antique shops.

We really enjoyed our stay at Paquerettes, apart from the weather!, it was incredibly comfy, well equipped and really felt like a home from home. A beautiful villa with everything we needed and great service from everyone while we were out there. Thanks so much for everything and we hope to be back. Emma and friends April 2011
We enjoyed a wonderful family holiday in a beautiful villa set in large secluded grounds. The villa far exceeded our expectations as a party of 9 (Mum, Dad, grown up children, partners and infant) we were a little worried about being cramped but the villa was so big this was no issue, everyone had space to play and relax. The pool was large, lovely, clean and fenced off which was great especially as we had a toddler with us. The decor throughout was stylish warm and welcoming with all rooms of a good size. As Mum and Dad (and grandparents) we slept in the lovely decorated annex which was joined to the house but also secluded enough to have our own space. I could say lots more things about the villa such as the table tennis table, numerous games, large garden for boules/frisbee, beautiful kitchen, outdoor dining area and bbq... However the best compliment I can give is that all our party were so sad to leave 'our' luxury house in France at the end of the holiday.
One of Callian's most famous residents was the fashion icon Christian Dior. It's easy to see why he chose to live here, surrounded by the beauty of Provence's striking hill villages, in an oasis of calm, yet only 35 minutes from the glamorous beaches of Cannes.
The local area boasts a vast array of amenities to satisfy all preferences. The Lac St Cassien is great for swimming and boating, Le Domaine de Terre Blanche boasts a stunning spa and two golf courses whilst others may prefer to go gliding, horse-riding or even skiing in the winter (45mins). There are also superb restaurants, vineyards, antique shops, craft markets, art fairs and cultural events.
Callian is an area of outstanding natural beauty, ideal for country walks, painting and photography. It is also an excellent base for exploring the very best that Provence and the French Riviera has to offer.
Callian is just 40 minutes from Nice Airport.
