This property, between Provence and the French Riviera, in the Maures forest, equidistant from two tourist villages, is just 15 km from the Mediterranean beaches. The traditional Mas house is constructed on a large plateau where vines grow on the edge of the forest, with a rare view of the Rocher-des-Trois-Croix (the rock with three crosses). Although appearing to be isolated in its particularly peaceful setting, this property is nevertheless part of a residential district, with several other discreet traditional Mas and Bastide houses. The site, with its flora and fauna, is in a classified and protected area, far from any town development plans for many years to come.
This traditional Mas house is reached via a narrow, winding, little-used road. It is 4 km from a village to the east and 1.5 km from another to the west. Both directions make it possible to get to main roads and motorway slip roads in less than 10 minutes. The southern climate, with its 300 days of sunshine throughout the year, is pleasantly tempered during the summer months by the sea breeze. Saint-Tropez, 35 km away, can be easily reached in the summer via shuttle boat from Issambres’ port, less than 15 minutes away. Nice International airport is 40 minutes away and a TGV train station is 18 km away.
The traditional Mas house
This traditional Mas house is laid out all on a level, surrounded by wide terraces.
Behind its dry stone walls under a triple overhanging cornice, this traditional Mas house appears to have stood forever, all on a level in treasured silence, exuding the very essence of the Mediterranean. And yet, this property is not fifty years old and, courtesy of its recent renovation works, there are no works to be scheduled apart from the replacement of the windows which could be considered too modern for a building bearing such a close resemblance to Provencal sheepfolds. The diversity of the parklands’ lush vegetation, kept cool in the shade of the tall trees, has all it takes to appeal to Mediterranean garden enthusiasts. The access lane, winding through the forest, superbly enhances a feeling of isolation, which is somewhat exaggerated as the property is barely 1.5 km from the main roads and 12 km from the little town of Le-Muy. Urban cars can easily reach this property as the land is quite flat. This residence, practical and pleasant to live in, enables its residents to take advantage of the southern sunshine in protected, almost everlasting tranquillity.
