in a dominant position with Mount Sainte-Victoire in the background
Tourves, VAR provence-cote-dazur 83170 FR


This property, in the south of France’s department of Var, spans more than two hectares. At an altitude of 300 m, it dominates the Provencal forest and valleys of Mediterranean scrubland. Mounts Sainte-Victoire and Sainte-Baume can be seen in the distance. The town of Brignoles is 10 km away, with a slip road for the A8 motorway. Hyères-Les-Palmiers airport is about 30 minutes away and that of Marseille-Marignane is 70 km away. There are many hiking trails in the area around the property. The Mediterranean Sea and the beaches of Hyères, Le-Lavandou and Cap-Bénat can be reached in less than an hour.


This large, traditional Bastide house, with its light-coloured, sober façade, faces south and remains sunny all year round. The house is extended on either side by additions with Roman tile roofs of varying heights. Olive trees in large, white-leaded, wooden planters provide an air of Aix-en-Provence. The large swimming pool, at the foot of a few steps, is flanked by stone paved decks. Throughout the grounds, one hundred year old olive trees and pergolas, dotted here and there, provide shade in the summer. A fountain, with a dressed stone pool and a column with a capitals, is to be found in one of the landscaped alleyways near to the swimming pool. Further away, the pool of a wash-house and its fountain provide a touch of serenity to the pastoral surroundings of the Bastide. The enclosed space, in which it stands, continues over almost 1½ hectares beyond the fencing. Young olive trees grow amongst maritime pine, pubescent oak and other forest plants.

The traditional Bastide house

The architecture of this home, constructed in the 20th century, is typical of that of traditional Provencal Bastide houses. Its main facade spans two levels. Semi-circular arched French windows are fitted with Provencal shutters, made of horizontal strips of wood and painted the colour of flax. The facade is also decorated with wrought iron railings and a balcony. A sun terrace has been laid out on the biggest terrace, the floor of which is paved with dressed stone. A terrace opening into a bedroom is enclosed by a balustrade composed of natural boughs. Two single-storey extensions, on either side of the Bastide, adjoin the house.

Ground floor
The ground floor, spanning almost 300 m², comprises a 63 m² living room, a kitchen and a back kitchen, a laundry room, five bedrooms, with bathrooms, and a guest toilet.

The garden and the swimming pool

The main terrace looks down on the swimming pool area. A summer kitchen has been installed as well as pergolas ready and waiting for those deckchairs.

Our opinion

The air is heavy with the fragrance of lavender and pine, olive trees rustle gently in the wind and the rare clouds are reflected in the water of the swimming pool. The three buildings, comprising this traditional Bastide house, blend harmoniously together. The interior spaces reflect refined lines, noble materials and, of course, good taste. It is not surprising that such a property already attracts guests within its walls and its Mediterranean vegetation. Peace and quiet reign, hiking trails are to be found all around and the sea is within easy reach. The view is one of the great painters’ favourite landscapes: the mountain ranges of Sainte-Victoire, Sainte-Baume and Maures.
