La Bergerie is a lovely Provencal 4 bedroom villa set in a large private garden. It benefits from a private heated outdoor pool easily accessible from its terrace. The house, pool and grounds are surrounded by olive terraces. The unspoilt hill-top villages of Montauroux and The historic villages of Callian and Montauroux are a 5 minute drive away with weekly busy markets, the local olive oil and Rose are particularly delicious. Village shops, cafes, the maze of village lanes and a classic square with a fountain hold delights around each corner, waiting to reveal their gifts. In the summer Callian hosts wonderful music festivals and fairs. There is a range of supermarkets within 15 minutes driving in the valley below Callian and Montauroux. The villa has thick traditional stone walls which help keep it cool in the summer months together with the Provencal style tiled floor throughout the property.

About Lucinda Sikorski
I have a young family with four young children, all of whom love their time at La Bergerie. My parents-in-law built the property incorporating existing ruins over 40 years ago. The love and devotion they felt for and put into La Bergerie remains evident and adds to the charm.

Charming, well managed and well maintained home from home
We thoroughly enjoyed our fortnight stay at Le Bergerie. Perfect size for our group of 2 adults and 3 kids - we still had spare beds if we'd needed them. Charming, well maintained house set in lovely surroundings. We'd happily recommend this holiday home from home. Thank you Lucinda and Andrew.
La Bergerie is a lovely old Provence house which has been sympathetically restored by it's owners and is a haven of peace situated in a remote wooded area, yet close to the lovely Medieval hilltop Villages of Callian and Montauroux. Within easy reach of all of the Cote d'Azur and nice to return to, as a slightly cooler alternative to the intense heat of the sun drenched beaches! Lovely pool and terraces.
Lucinda Sikorski, the owner, was very helpful and pleasant to deal with
Welcoming, well equipped spacious home.
My family (2 adults, 2 teenagers) had a wonderful holiday at La Bergerie. The house is quite secluded and very peaceful, it has a lovely welcoming atmosphere and immediately felt like home. There was plenty of space for the 4 of us, the space is well thought out with good sized bedrooms, modern shower rooms, a well equipped kitchen, shaded terrace for dining and wonderful pool area for lazing under the bluest of french sky. The photographs accompanying this listing are accurate.
The villages of Callian and Montauroux are just a short drive away, both have great bakeries, and we found the locals to be very friendly towards visitors, there are 4 large supermarkets 10-15 minutes drive away. It is only a short drive to Lac Ste Cassien a stunning lake with kayaks, paddle boards,and pedaloes for hire. The house is also well situated for the A8 motorway for trips to Nice, Cannes, St Tropez and Monaco.
Communication with Lucinda, the owner, was good and she quickly sorted a small issue we had when we arrived.
I would recommend La Bergerie to my friends and family.
So glad you all had a great holiday & had such brilliant weather! Thank you for leaving the house so clean & tidy! Hope you come again one day - Lucinda
Our family of 6 had the most relaxing week here in this magical spot. The pool was great, lovely and warm, safe for our 6 year olds. The layout was great to be able to sip on wine reading a book whilst watching them having a great time in the pool. 3 good bathrooms with good showers, plenty of space.
This villa is well located to explore the picturesque local villages, though a car is a must.
The closest village of Callian is charming and have some good restaurants and great atmosphere. A perfect place to recharge the batteries!
Beautiful relaxing retreat
We had an amazing time in this beautiful house which comfortably accommodated 4 adults and 4 teenagers. Everything you need for a relaxing family holiday is there. The local area is stunning with lots to see and do. Will definitely return!
Am so glad you all had such a great holiday - hope the restoring effects of La Bergerie remain with you for a long time!
