The Provence region
Claviers is in the true heart of Provence. An hour away from Nice airport and the Cote d'Azur (Cannes, Antibes, St. Tropez, Grasse etc.), all with beaches, chic shopping and thousands of restaurants, including some of the best tables in the world. Monaco can be reached by the Corniche road, or a short helicopter trip from Nice. Behind us are the Alps for skiing, and exploring the famous Mercantour region (National park). Cycling, Boules and Adventure sports are all practiced here and the whole area is rich in wildlife and good living. Good food, peace, and beautiful natural surroundings.
Claviers is in the cool wooded hills just behind the famous 'Cote d'Azur'. The area is dotted with medieval hill villages each with its own character and vibrant culture. The villages take turns to hold festivals in the Summer, and local markets are full of colour There is a thriving community of local artists and exhibitions are held in all the villages. The village square is a place to meet the locals and enjoy an aperitif in the shade of the plane trees, or find the boules pitch and join in the local game. The coast is an hour away by car, and there are several golf courses close by. Europe's premiere gliding centre is twenty minutes away. The famous Gorges du Verdon are just forty minutes away, with breathtaking views and a variety of exciting adventure sports, including bungee jumping, canyoning, and kayaking.

"A perfect, luxurious retreat"
We stayed for one week in this villa last year and I can't wait to go again. It truly is an amazing place! When we arrived we couldn't believe how luxurious this villa is! Two of the rooms have Jacuzzi baths and the other has an en-suite shower. There are 3 terraces which are beautiful and none are over-looked. To be honest it was nothing short of the set of a vogue photo shoot!
Then there were all the extras that we weren't expecting like the little vegetable patch that we could pick fresh fruit and veg from, the pizza oven that was great fun and the paper and croissants delivered to your door on a Sunday. Noelle the owner is lovely, she was really helpful with recommending places and very generous in her stocking of the cupboards and fridges.
The location is great, you are not over-looked and have beautiful views over the forests. A short 10 minute walk takes you to Claviers, where there are some lovely restaurant and bars we went to "La cley d'songe" twice because it was so lovely, to eat in the garden there and the food was fantastic.
We are all 26-27 year-olds but this is the type of place that my parents would love as well as families with children.
There are 10 of us this year on our annual trip, so we won't fit this year but we look forward to returning soon.
