|Further details outdoors|
The villa, built on a south facing hillside, in private 1.5 acres, is set 30 meters back from the road, well separated from neighbouring houses, and approached through a small olive grove. Olive trees abound throughout the terraced garden. The terrace outside the living room and dining room acts as an outdoor living area in summer, equipped with electrically operated awning, large teak dining table and chairs, reclining chairs and a truly magnificent view (see photo) whose peacefulness generates complete relaxation.
The pool, on its own private terrace, is well equipped with plenty of sun loungers, parasols and small table and chairs. The games room and covered terrace below the living room provides cool space (and shelter if it rains) for table tennis and darts. On the same level there is also a separate sitting area for the occupants of the studio or 'the young' as required.
The Villa is situated on the side of a hill, the position which provides the stunning views, but the inevitable terraces and steep slopes in the garden are not recommended for children under 10 or the infirm. (tho' active mid eighties have loved it)
The pool is normally open from 3rd week of May to the end of September. If specifically requested, it may be possible to extend these dates.
About this location

Callas is located in the hills approx 22 miles north of the coast at Ste Maxime/Frejus. Beautiful fortified villages, castles and chapels in the area add interest to walks and the stunning scenery and, delightful country restaurants offer an incentive for country walks or drives. There is plenty of scope for outside family activity, including water sports at the coast or Lac Ste Croix (windsurfing kit can be rented at the coast), cycling, tennis (4 Km away), golf etc.

Situated in the hills at about 400 metres facing down to the coast 30 kilometres away, Callas retains a truly French way of village life, still preserving its own shaded village square, traditions and infrastructure including weekly market (Tuesdays and Saturdays), boulangerie, boucherie, tabac, La poste (with cash dispenser), mini market and restaurants - all withing 250 meters of the villa. There is an active olive oil mill in the village as well as a good Cave. Miles of walks start from the villa.

"A complete pleasure to stay somewhere so lovely"
Les Micocouliers has the feel of a well-loved family holiday home and has everything you could possibly need for a very comfortable stay (good quality linen, well-equipped kitchen, etc). The views are awesome and the location is ideal with a short walk to buy the most delicious croissants and bread from the local bakery each morning. We made full use of the good-sized pool (very clean and well-kept) and the table-tennis equipment, which was a big hit with our children. The owners' advice and information was extremely useful – they obviously love their villa, Callas and the surrounding area and want to share the pleasure of being there. A huge thank you to them for a wonderful holiday. We didn't want to leave. Highly recommended.

"Fabulous villa in perfect location with stunning views"
Our extended family - pensioners to teenager - spent two weeks here in July/August 2014. The villa is spacious, very well maintained, with comfortable bedrooms and large, cool living areas. There are lovely outside shaded spaces and terraces with superb views where we dined most evenings. The pool is large and immaculately maintained. The villa and especially the kitchen are very well-equipped. We found everything we needed to feed and entertain our party of 9.
The villa and grounds are very private despite it being just a short walk to the local village for a coffee or meal at one of the restaurants. The owners provide files of useful information and maps about activities and places to visit. The location is great - we took walks from the villa, cycle rides to some of the other hilltop villages, and day trips further afield to Gorges du Verdon and Tourtour, in addition to spending many relaxing hours by the pool.
The owners were extremely helpful throughout from offering travel advice and tips on places to stay en route to providing essential BBQ supplies for our arrival evening.
We hope to return soon and would strongly recommend this property to others.
