5 charming Béd & Breakfast guest rooms + 2 self-catering studio apartments amid natural splendour

Set in spectacular scenery of *Green Provence*, halfway between the Verdon Gorge and the French Riviera, our family-run countryside guesthouse invites you to a haven of tranquillity and relaxation amidst natural splendour. Enjoy home from home comfort at a sumptuous Provencal manor providing stylish, comfortable self-contained studio apartments (sleep up to 4) and charming bed and breakfast accommodation. In the shade of century-old pine and oak trees at the gates of a picturesque village, you will be lulled by the cicadas and enchanted by the scents of the Garrigue. A perfect romantic get away from life's hustle and bustle…

All lodgings are carefully decorated and feature rustic teak wood furniture. Exposed wooden ceiling beams, terracotta tiled floors and pastel-coloured walls create a cosy Mediterranean atmosphere, which will instantly make you feel comfortable. Situated on the upper floor, the studio apartments and guest bedrooms have a lovely view of the garden and sylvan environs.

Guest comforts include a 4 x 8 m outdoor pool amidst colourful Mediterranean gardens, a wellness oasis with hot tub and massage services, a sun terrace with outdoor furniture for taking your meals or unwind, and a guest lounge with sat-TV, DVD player, computer, library, minibar and kitchen niche. Free WIFI Internet access is available throughout the residence.

Bras is a quaint medieval village, ancient commandry of the Knights Templar, nestling amidst lovely natural landscapes and sylvan surroundings of lushly wooded hills, purling brooks and hidden valleys. A little paradise for all lovers of nature and authenticity. The surroundings offer many picturesque spots for extensive hikes and walking as well as a variety of other activities like biking, climbing, horse riding, canoeing, boating, paragliding, tennis, golf, fishing and many more… And thanks to the central situation of our property in the heart of Provence – the Verdon Gorge and the Mediterranean Sea are only an hour away – we make the perfect base for exploring the South of France.

Comfort, quality and hospitality of our guesthouse are certified by the Green Provence Tourist Council and recommended by numerous accommodation guides. TripAdvisor top-rated. Not suitable for families with children under the age of 13.

Please note:

• All rooms and studio apartments are let separately - we do not rent out the property as a whole.

• Our lodgings are upstairs (about 15 steps) and hence unsuitable for physically disabled travellers.

• They have no TV or minibar (available in the guest lounge), private bathrooms are outfitted with a shower (not a tub) and double beds are 140 cm x 200 cm in size.

• We aim to offer a relaxed and peaceful place and therefore accept only children over the age of 13.

• Our hilltop property is located about 1.5 km outside the village. The last 300 m of its access road are a dirt track, making it somewhat difficult for low-slung vehicles.

Location description from owner

The Provence region

Incomparable Provence - land of magic and dreams, light and colour, savoir vivre and art... Enjoy its endless lavender fields and olive groves, heady scents of pine trees, herbs and earth, azure blue bays and majestic limestone mountains. A first shy flirt will nearly always turn into a great and never ending love...

There is so much to see, so many things to do. The region's main attractions include the breathtaking Verdon Canyon, the majestic limestone massifs and hiker paradise of Sainte-Victoire, Sainte-Baume and Luberon, the beautiful sandy beaches of La Londe-les-Maures, the untouched island of Porquerolles, the exciting French Riviera, the extraordinary rocky bays "Calanques" of Cassis, the cities of Avignon, Marseilles, Nice, Saint Tropez or Aix and the wide variety of picturesque villages which can be easily explored by car or bicycle.

Bras

La Bastide des Templiers is nestled right in the heart of what is called "Green Provence", the centre of the Var district. Many believe this region to be a piece of paradise, as it is a true hideaway from it all. In an ever-shrinking world, it still offers pristine, raw nature at its most beautiful: vast areas of untouched scenery, interrupted only occasionally by small villages embedded into pine and oak forests or perched like aeries on a hilltop. But its beauty comes also from a sublime Mediterranean countryside composed of endless vineyards, lavender fields and olive groves. Here, in the tranquil hinterland of the Riviera, away from congested beaches and the madding crowd, where the natives gear down and live with respect for their environment, you will be able to fully relax and unwind, and come into touch with the authentic Provence...

The village of Bras is located in the centre of a triangle formed by the towns of Saint-Maximin, Brignoles and Barjols, a 40 minutes drive from Aix-en-Provence, midway between the Verdon gorges and the chic French Riviera - the perfect base to tour Provence and visit a maximum of its famous attractions. At about 300 to 500 m height above sea level, the ancient Templar village and its environs is an Eldorado for nature lovers and ramblers and a great place for relaxing days in the great outdoors. Numerous hiking trails and paths take you to the surrounding woods and meadows and to little ponds and creeks.

An exceptional and healthy climate both meridional and alpine, about 300 sunny days a year, pleasantly cool nights offering a quiet and sound sleep (without the need of air conditioning), splendid landscapes and vast vistas of unspoiled countryside, unique light and scents, picturesque Provencal villages and history-charged medieval vestiges, Mediterranean lifestyle and a load of spots of grandiose art and culture – all that and much more is waiting for you here...
