The Provence Alpes Cote d'Azur region
The Var region of Provence enjoys sunshine through out the summer months, even in the winter the temperature can reach the early 20s at mid-day. In the summer months temperatures reach 30 degrees or more.
It has some spectacular scenery; around Brignoles there are pretty hill-top villages, our village of Montfort included, and dense forests of oak and pine broken by terraced vineyards.
The central location of our village house gives you the opportunity to explore Provence. The mountains in the north have medieval villages such as Cotignac with tree-shaded squares and a market on a Tuesday morning. The area has plenty of local historic interest. Further a field spectacular Roman architecture can be found at Arles, Avignon and Aix-en Provence. Le Thoronet and la Celle are beautiful medieval abbeys nearby. There are many beautiful beaches to visit to the south between St. Tropez and Toulon. The proximity of the A8 motorway means that the cities of Nice, Marseille and Monte Carlo are easily reached in a day.
The Var's regional capital Brignoles is a lively medieval market town and the surrounding vineyards produce some of the region's most renowned wines. In addition to the weekly market on Saturday, the town has several supermarkets, restaurants and plenty of sports facilities. Every summer the town hosts a three-day festival, Les Médiévales, with colourful parades, demonstrations of medieval arts and crafts, jousting tournaments and plenty of music and dancing.
Brignoles has one of the region's top equestrian centres and if you are a keen golfer, the famous Barbaroux golf course. The largest aqua park in France is near Frejus 50 km away. Hikers can obtain details of walks in the area from the local tourist office. The hills and forests are home to a fascinating array of flora and fauna.
The local food is excellent, delicacies include truffles and wild mushrooms, sheep's milk cheeses, olives and the region's delicious pale pink rosé wines. There are some excellent restaurants in the area, including one at the wonderful 12th century abbey of La Celle, a village just outside Brignoles. Many of the local vineyards will offer tours of the wineries and tasting sessions.
Dominated by its twelfth century château, the former and only residence of the Commander of the Knights Templar, for the whole of Provence (today in private hands), this peaceful Provençal village overlooks the banks of the river Argens.
Local shops include two general stores with the famous 'Chez Georgette' who is open from when she wakes up until she goes to bed, even on Christmas day. Georgette started in 1943 as trainee and has owned the shop since 1947. The village baker caters for all your needs and is renowned in the area. There is also a Post office and a charming restaurant 'La Petite Marmite' with traditional food and family atmosphere with menus from 13,5€.
The village is visited twice a week by a fishmonger and the vegetable man.
It would be best to visit the Office de Tourisme and see Alexandra (who can't wait to speak English) for further information on the different activities in the village and surrounding area, brocantes, fetes, etc

"Picture perfect piece of Provence"
This beautiful house matches its description and pictures perfectly. The owners are a pleasure to deal with and always available to help with any questions, as is the local key-holder. The village has every amenity, is peaceful and so picturesque! I am so enjoying the winter let here- it's warm and cosy, with a gorgeous garden to sit out in in the still-warm sunshine.

"Beautiful House in Provence Village"
We really enjoyed our five day stay in this friendly village. The house is a lovely old building which has been thoughtfully renovated and if anything is better than the photos. The house is well equipped, well maintained and very clean with a modern kitchen and two lovely bathrooms and spacious living room. The terraced gardens accessed through french doors off the kitchen were so pretty and with several seating areas. Our 15 yo daughter loved it (great wi fi access) and described it to her friends as like being in a house and garden magazine.
The village itself is small and very authentic with narrow cobblestone streets and lovely old buildings, small squares and fountains and although we didn't speak french the locals were friendly and helpful. We bought fresh bread from the bakery and had excellent coffee at the bar nearby, both minutes walk away. The countryside around this area is amazing with wineries and olive groves and picturesque villages. It is easy to get to the freeway to the coast ( Cassis is beautiful) and15 minute drive to Brinoles for supermarket supplies.
The owners have provided lots of information about places to visit, restaurants markets etc and although the village was without tourists there is a very helpful woman at the tourist info near the house. The booking process was easy the owners were quick to respond to emails and enquiries and the key holder was charming. We highly recommend the house as a base for sightseeing in Provence.

"Beautiful apartment in a cute little provincial town"
The apartment is spacious and very nice. Its is split up over several levels in a charming old building. The owners have managed to keep the charm of the old with all the necessary modern features. There is also a cute little garden out the back which is perfect for having a bbq or just taking in the sun and reading a book. The town is very small but there is a restaurant and a bakery 1 mins walk away and a winery outlet 7 mins walk away. The town can be hard to find so make sure you have a good detailed map or sat nav. You definitely need a car but will be rewarded in a lot of charming mid size towns and wineries nearby. The main coastal freeway is only 15 mins drive away giving you access to the big cities along the coast like Nice and Marseille. The owners were very helpful and provided lots of advice on where to visit and the best restaraunts. Overall a very well maintained property in a very relaxing part of Provence and it would recommend it especially if you are looking to get away from it all.

""Shabby Chic à la France" – The No.7 is just charming and the perfect get away for a small family or group of friends."
The house was so tastefully decorated in calming tones and shabby chic furnishings. It felt like being at our own home, rather than a rental house.
A very serene village and friendly neighbours. And, the area was perfect for getting away. The lavender fields were in bloom and soooo beautiful! We also visited many more fabulous places and areas farther afield in Haute Provence.
Dealing with the owners was very pleasant. We had an outstanding time and we hope to come back …
