Traditional Bastide style detached house sleeps up to 10 people with 5 Bedrooms, 2 Family Bathrooms plus 2 En-suites and offers all the amenities you would expect from a modern UK home. Essentially each double bedroom has access to its own bathroom, with the twin bedrooms sharing a family sized bathroom. The property has a large south facing lounge with open plan kitchen extending onto a generous terrace area running the length of the property, leading to the bathing / pool tiled terrace, and also contains a separate TV room, plus ground floor WC. Situated in a quarter acre site with 2 swimming pools, (1 adult pool = 10m x 6m x 2m; seperate childrens pool = 2m x 6m x 1m), and a large surrounding tiled sun terrace that catches the sun for most of the day. We provide enough sun loungers for the anticipated maximum guests (10) so no worries about sharing, and 2 shaded areas suitable for timeouts during peak season temperatures, along with a garden swing located in our hidden garden. N.B. Due to the out of season temperatures the pool is covered (winterised) from end October to end March so any bookings outside of this time would most likely exclude usage of the pool unless temperatures we unusually high for the time of year or previously agreed in advance of the booking. The property can easily manage from 4-10 people, according to requirements. The property is located within a local community who will be going about their daily lives so we request that you respect the peace and tranquility of this secluded location, and our neighbours (who will more often than not wave and say hello when/if passing). FYI: The entire VAR region introduced a local bylaw in 2002 regarding neighbourhood noise (type '/ap_lutte_contre_le_bruit_de_voisinage_20sept2002.pdf' into google - see articles 1 & 2) so we do ask that you respect this during your visit with us. Unfortunately due to certain instances where others have failed to do so, we are now obliged by the mayors office to enforce a financial penalty for any such reported instances. N.B. Unless prior permission and all appropriate paperwork has been submitted to/approved by the local mayors office, parties or loud celebrations of any kind are expressly prohibited and will incur a financial penalty against the bond should this occur. Our local baker lives 3 doors down and rises early each morning to bake delicious baguette, croissants, pain au chocolates, pomme aux chaussons (highly recommend!) in the village 'Messerlin' bakery, located around 1.5km away near the local supermarket. This bakery is renowned within the area as the best bakery locally (second best in the entire Var region) and has won multiple awards over recent years. I can highly recommend their efforts! Whilst we accept that it's only natural that there may be breakages or accidents occuring during your holiday, we ask that you consider the impact to any subsequent guests by ensuring that any breakages are either replaced (same or similar) and flagged to myself/concierge so that these can be addressed as a matter of urgency and avoid inconveniencing any subsequent guests where-ever possible. Your understanding and assistance with this is much appreciated as we would like each guest to have an equally pleasurable experience. Similarly we ask that you perform an initial recap on arrival and if you notice that something isn't working properly, please feel free to alert us to the issue so that we can address it, or in the private feedback we welcome any suggestions you may have that you believe may aide for future guests needs. Unlike most other rentals in the region, included in the rental price are sufficient bedding and towels per person with facilities available to wash during your stay. However, due to the short turnaround time we have in preparing the property between reservations, we do require that you leave the property in a reasonably clean condition both internally and externally before departing. This includes but is not limited to all crockery washed and stored, bins emptied, beds stripped, any inflatables/games/products/food taken with you or binned (these are located a short walk away at the end of our road). N.B. Whilst we anticipate most of our guests to understand and comply with our house rules, failure to respect them may result in a financial penalty being applied.More
House Rules
Pets Allowed: No
Smoking Allowed: No
Kid Friendly: Yes
The house is located in a typically rural french community environment and as such we would kindly request that you respect the local noise limits when outside the property. Since 2002 across the full VAR / Cote D'Azur region there is a noise abatement order in place which if abused, will incur a financial penalty imposed by the mayor. Should any such fine occur, any fees imposed will be passed onto our guests. To avoid this, we strongly recommend keeping noise levels at a reasonable level.

About the neighbourhood
Brignoles is the nearest large town which hosts a large weekly market, with restaurants, cafes, and large supermarkets. You can easily relax in the main square with its marble paving & fountain, whiling the time away whilst watching the world go buy. Le Luc is a smaller but equally charming town (equidistant to Flassans), and contains similar facilities and is well worth a visit to the old town centre. Just outside the village is a large adventure park for children offering facilities such as go-carting ,horse riding, adventure woodland, tennis etc.
Getting around
Unless you're into cycling, then the best mode of transport would be by car.
