This is a delightful property. It feels like a home rather than a holiday villa. The lounge opening out onto the pool area is a lovely feature and enabled us to keep an eye on the Wimbledon mens final while nipping out for more sun and swims when play was interrupted by rain.
The owner, Martin, was extremely helpful in our preparations for our holiday.
The property is looked after by Lenny, an English expat, who also runs the Entrecasteaux Cricket Club and who is a mine of useful information.
The property is situated on the top of a pine clad hill which is full of birds and cicadas. It is about a half mile walk down the lane (a steep pull back up!) to the delightful village of Entrecasteaux where the boulangerie sells excellent bread and croissants.
This is a beautiful part of Provence with steep wooded valleys and plenty of vineyards and it is about an hour's drive to the amazing Gorges de Verdon.
All in all a wonderful holiday. This villa is ideal for lazing by the pool or as a centre for visiting the beautiful Var area.
The house is wonderful! The various bedrooms are lovely and waking up to a view out to the pool and sun is fabulous! The pool is amazing and on hot days it is just what you need. Being situated away from the main roads it is very peaceful, but it is only a short walk down a lovely back route to the village of Entrecasteux where there are great restaurants and the atmosphere is very enjoyable! The house itself is equipped with everything you would need, the BBQ is wonderful and many evenings were spent having late night meals under the amazing stars. Having been to the villa 3 or 4 times I can definitely say that it is as astounding as ever and I cannot wait to go back again. The pool is luxurious when the weather becomes too much but it is always sunny and when it gets too hot, the house is always cool and refreshing! The geckos around the area are fascinating to watch! I cannot wait to go back and would strongly recommend staying in this family villa and relaxing!
This is a lovely villa in an idyllic location. Fabulous pool (kept in sparkling condition by weekly visits from pool man Andree) and huge terrace with comfortable and stylish cane furniture. Perfect to while away the lovely days in the sun - lots of shade too.
The 'home from home' house was very clean and well appointed - looked after by Ruth, locally - who was on hand to explain the workings of the house.
This was the most peaceful and relaxing holiday we have ever had.
Can really recommend this property - great value too. We will be going back for sure.
Lots to do in surrounding areas - there was a good listing of markets, restaurants and things to do, at the house which was really useful.
This was our second holiday at this delightful property: see our review
of our 2008 stay.
As previously noted this is a delightful family home with a welcoming lived-in feel; a pleasant change from villas from villa rental companies which so often lack character. Yes, a few cracked tiles etc but this is just part of normal wear and tear and did not detract from our enjoyment.
Having not been well for a few weeks prior to our holiday it was great
to spend lazy days by the pool and recuperate. We did manage a few days
out including the Massif des Maures (Grimaud a delightful village) and
Lac St Croix (a good lakeside beach area and swimming at the village of
St Croix). Return via Quinson to enjoy the lavendar fields on the
The local rose wine is well recommended (try the Caves de l'Amiral in
Entrecasteaux and the Domaine de Roucas on the road to Carces) and there are a number of good and reasonably priced restaurants in the area (we had good meals at La Fourchette in Entrecasteaux and La Terrasse in Cotignac (excellent lunchtime fixed price menu at €14 each).
The mid-stay clean and change of bedding was welcome. Being in a wooded
area the pool and surrounding area fills with a fair amount of debris
and insects and a more frequent clean would have been welcome, but
otherwise no suggestions for improving the great experience of another
holiday at this property. Highly recommended.
We have visited this villa twice now, and are already booked in for 2011! The location is utterly idyllic (unless you are looking for a 'Butlins style' break because you certainly won't find a red-coat here!) with everything you could want to make this a true home-from-home experience.
The outdoor covered BBQ area is great fun for those fabulous warm summer evenings and I have to say that turning the pool lights on when it gets dark and 'taking it all in' at the end of a hard day still takes our breath away.
On a slightly more practical note, the ceiling fans in the rooms are a fantastic addition to this very well thought out (and I have to say, well maintained) property.
We have 2 children aged 12 who adore exploring the woodlands (is it my fault they believe there might be treasure hidden there?!) and playing in the pool. There is sky tv for those desperate moments (of which I'm delighted to say we have had none!) and the food and wine in both the village and surrounding areas are superb.
Thankyou so much for our many holiday memories - we can't wait to make some more!
The villa is in an excellent postion surrounded by pine trees close to the village of Entrecasteaux.
The villa had plenty of space inside and out but we were disappointed with the interior especially the kitchen and main bathroom which needed updating.
The terrace outside and pool area was also disappointing with broken floor tiles and mosaic tiles falling off the pool wall. The outside wicker chairs also need updating.
Entrecasteaux está localizado 25 km a nordeste de Brignoles.
Construído sobre uma elevação rochosa é uma das mais bonitas aldeias da região e manteve o seu encanto original que remonta ao século XI. O Chateau no centro da aldeia foi construída no XVI C sobre as ruínas de uma fortaleza XI C e possui um jardim projetado por Le Notre (que estabelecem os jardins de Versalhes). As antigas ruas pavimentadas, ladeadas por casas de aldeia altas e estreitas, completar o quadro de uma aldeia medieval intacta
