Provencal village holiday house with pool in the Var, Provence, South of France.
La Maison du Faiencier is a typical Provence village ‘Master’s House’. It was built in 1609 and fully renovated in 2004 conserving all its charm.
The house with secluded garden, courtyards and swimming pool is situated in the heart of the hill-top village of Varages in the Var in Provence.
On the ground floor is a fully fitted semi-professional kitchen.
Dining room / lounge.
There are 5 double bedrooms which can be made up with large single or super-king-sized double beds.
Each bedroom has its own (power) shower / bathroom.
Two courtyards with garden furniture.
A secluded walled garden with vines, fruits trees and a roman-basin style pool (7m x 3m).
The house is situated on the main ‘Place’, right in the heart of the hill-top village of Varages. Across the square is the local boulangerie, boucherie, cafe and restaurant. Three minutes walk away are the pharmacy, post office, a park with boules and tennis courts and a dedicated play area for young children.
There are two medium-sized supermarkets in the local village of Barjols.
The town St-Maximin-Saint-Baume (a 20 minute drive) offers a complete array of shops and facilities.
In the medieval villages of Provence the weekly market stalls still take centre stage and provide a life-line of fresh produce for the locals.
‘Gorges du Verdon’: Europe’s Grand Canyon is 20 minutes drive north of the property. Its rivers and lakes stretch 25 kilometres and offers beaches, water sports, endless hiking and Mediterranean fauna & flora.
The lavender fields of the Plateau de Valensole: Close your eyes, breathe deeply and listen for the ‘hum’ of busy bees - the heady scent of lavender is strongest at the heart of the summer when the purple / blue prairies stretch as far as the eye can see.
Aix-en-Provence is in our opinion the most beautiful city in the world; architecturally stunning, buzzing with bourgeois life and filled with artisans market stalls. Just sit in a café on the Cours Mirabeau under the towering plane-trees and drink in the culture.
Pure white cotton bed linen is included in the price.
