Between the Gulf of Saint-Tropez and the Var hinterland, set somewhat distant from the wooded Maures hills. Between Plan-de-la-Tour village and Vidauban, a small town some 14 km away, with a slip road for the motorway linking Nice and Aix-en-Provence. The seaside is 20 km away, towards Port-Grimaud. Les-Arcs-sur-Argens TGV train station is 9 km away. Nice international airport is about 55 minutes away, that of Hyères 45 minutes and that of Marseille is 60 minutes away. Far from the urban hustle and bustle, this property can be reached via a narrow scenic route that winds its way through cork oak forests and vineyards, before reaching a plateau crisscrossed by streams forming a protected site. Access then continues via a dirt track, bordered by wild bamboo, which leads to the entrance, marked by two old stone pillars with capitals, flanking tall wrought iron gates. A long driveway bordered by umbrella pine trees leads to the houses.
The main traditional Mas house
The first, traditional stone Mas house is reached via a few steps leading up to a semi-circular arched porch way, composed of large pieces of local stone. The very old wooden entrance door, aged with time, is topped with a glazed fanlight protected by a wrought iron grille. Going around the outside of the house, residents pass under an elegant wrought iron pergola, largely covered with wisteria and across a terrace, providing access to the living room and the kitchen. This is followed by a lawn enclosed by wrought iron railings, separate from the rest of the parklands. The facade of the Mas house is predominantly covered with Virginia creeper, growing up to the roof. Both levels, constructed from exposed stone, feature high arched openings with pale grey shutters, made of horizontal strips of wood. The roof, comprising two protruding sections, is covered with Roman tiles above a double overhanging cornice.
The guest house
This guest house, separated from the main residence by a Mediterranean patio, is completely self-contained. Reached via sober stone steps, it comprises three bedrooms and a bathroom.
The stone cabin
This stone cabin is currently used as a garage and as storage space.
The parklands and the land
More than one hectare of the parklands, shaded by tall pine trees, is enclosed. The remaining land comprises scrubland but, as the soil is fertile, it would be possible to plant vines or olive trees.
The lake, near to the property’s entrance gates, is a natural reservoir containing fish which is filled during the rainy season and prevents the parklands from flooding in winter.
This vast property takes full advantage of its unspoilt Mediterranean surroundings, protected courtesy of its flat land with its unobstructed view over the wooded hills and the scrubland, without a single neighbour in sight. This asset would make it possible to grow olives and grapes, especially as an irrigation system using water from Provence canal was recently installed. The very private golf course laid out in the vicinity does not present any nuisances as its entrance is more than a kilometre away. The track leading to the property goes through a wild bamboo forest for a few hundred metres, making it necessary to pass in front of some less elegant, rural properties, but it would be possible to create another entrance driveway. This would be a way of guaranteeing additional tranquillity and very Provencal charm for this most delightful property.
