Our villa is outstanding for it's quiet and secluded location with magnificent views over the surrounding hills, and yet close to some of the most beautiful hilltop villages in the Var - still unspoilt by tourism. It is for the exclusive use of our visitors and we only accept one booking at a time. New addition this year: 3rd ensuite bathroom and spa!!
The villa itself is a haven of calm both inside and outside, recently redecorated throughout with tasteful provençal style flooring, 3 modernised bathrooms with spacious walk-in showers, towel heaters and provençal tiling. The spacious living area, under an oak beamed cathedral-style ceiling, comprises a living room with log burning chimney, and large dining room separated by a low wall from the well-equipped kitchen. Patio doors lead to a wide south facing terrace, recently relaid with high quality stone, and a rose and bamboo covered pergola where a magnificent oak tree provides shady dining in summer with adjacent barbecue.
Three air-conditioned bedrooms (2 doubles, including king-size and queen-size beds - both with ensuite bathrooms, and a 3rd with 3 single beds and a canapé-bed) each with own patio doors leading out to newly laid south and east-facing terraces with tables and loungers - and beyond to the large private swimming pool with Jacuzzi, plus new feature for 2017 - a spa comfortably seating 4 adults. A recently restored “cabanon” (small stone-built studio) set apart from the house provides additional sleeping accommodation (double bed) and shower, toilet and wash basin (hot & cold running water). There is also a large, shaded patio area with additional seating - an ideal place to listen to nature or watch the children playing.
In the main house, 2 ensuite bathrooms plus a separate shower room with large shower & WC, completes the accommodation.
Satelite TV with DVD, VHS and hi-fi, Internet service (wifi and broadband), and a range of indoor games, DVDs and books for children and adults. Outdoors, we have been lovingly caring for the forest and gardens, and have installed on the different terraces pétanque, Volleyball, football and ping-pong. There are several outdoor patio areas, and a large outdoor dining area with electric barbecue. There are 2 hamacs in the trees.
Much of your time will probably be spent around the large, heated swimming pool with a good range of loungers, parasols and pool furniture. We also supply a number of pool games. We have recently added a further pergola to this area to provide additional shade in summer.
Fully equipped kitchen with quality provençal tiling, separate utility room includes oven and hob, a second small oven for large family meals, microwave oven, dish-washer, washing machine, large "American" fridge / freezer with ice dispenser, an additional drinks fridge and extremely well equipped in crockery, cutlery and cooking utensils (including bread-maker) + high quality plastic plates & glasses for use around the pool.

Other sports in the area include golf, tennis, hiking, gliding, water sports and horse-riding etc. Or you can just relax in the quiet of your own special provençal villa... See map in picture gallery.
Claviers is a delightful unspoilt French village, dating from the 16th century, situated mid-distance between the coast and the Alps at 400 meters elevation. There are 2 restaurants, a bakery, bar and general store, plus a wide choice of restaurants in the nearby picturesque villages of Fayence, Callas, Bargemon, Seillans etc.
The villa is in a quiet rural section next to an olive grove and vineyards; a small path takes you into the village. We also provide information on a wide range of walks in the area.
For enthusiasts of golf, gliding, skiing, art and music festivals, we also happy to provide information about how to make the most of your holiday time with us.
