Les Arcs Sur Argens house description

Situated above the town center, the medieval quarter of Les Arcs-sur-Argens is a labyrinth of stepped alleys surrounded by beautifully restored stone houses with spectacular views of the Côtes de Provence vineyards below. Our house is situated in the heart of the medieval quarter on a peaceful square. It's enclosed front and rear gardens provide outdoor privacy while you dine or relax in this beautiful setting.
Our home is a Mediterranean mix of old and new, lived-in and loved. The natural floors, stone and ironwork throughout, combined with the white chalk-washed walls and polished white Moroccan cement tile surfaces provide a refreshing atmosphere. The interior and exterior have been completely renovated by Les Arcs craftsmen. The ironwork in the arch-doorways and windows were designed and forged by local artisans. It’s a wonderful place to relax with friends and enjoy its natural beauty – or paint “en plein air” if you are one of those talented artists seeking to capture the golden light of the south of France. A wood burning stove in the living room and upstairs fireplace warm the place up for perfect winter getaway. We purchased this house and made this our second home while living in Europe in the 1990s. Now that we live back in San Francisco we find our visits to the house even more magical!
Les Arcs is very conveniently located, with its TGV train station just 5 minutes down the hill, (TGV station: Les Arcs-Draguignan) There are numerous connections, including daily, direct service to Paris. Les Arcs is 45 minutes from the Nice Airport (NCE) , just 10 minutes from the St.Tropez exit off the A-8 Autoroute. This central location is very convenient for touring. Day trips can easily access: Nice, Aix-en-Provence, St. Tropez, Fréjus, Grasse and Saint Paul de Vence. Even closer, shorter trips to nearby stops include: the Abbey du Thoronet, Barjols, Lorgues and Draguignan. With several top quality Cotes de Provence wines in and around les Arcs, there is lots to sample. Providing an excellent overview is the region’s “Maison des Vins”, center for Provence wine tasting, is located in Les Arcs.

The house and front garden overlook the ancient chateau and tower. In this luminous setting you will appreciate the calm, tranquil space after a day of exploring the region. The entire ground floor is filled with natural light with open views on both front and back gardens. Opening onto the front garden through 2 arched doorways you'll find the interior living and dining room, also a great place to relax in front of the wood-burning stove during cool fall and winter evenings. The dining table seats 6 comfortably. Out in the gardens you can relax on chaise-lounges sampling some of the local wines or enjoying a nice meal you have created with delicious ingredients from the local farmers markets. Both gardens have dining tables. The natural light also floods into the professional, fully equipped kitchen which opens directly on the back garden patio and fountain. One level up you will find two bedrooms and 2 bathrooms with WC and shower. Located on the top level is the third bedroom. The sun-filled bedrooms have views directly on the old chateau and tower.

Having 2 garden patios allows you to take advantage to dine or lounge in full sunshine or shade as the sun shifts throughout the day. The rear patio is a garden oasis with its fountain and deep basin, perfect to cool-off those tired feet. With its naturally hard surfaces, the house is not suitable for small children. The house has been completely renovated by local artisans in a clean, whitewashed Mediterranean style, and is fully equipped with modern appliances. Public parking is available on the adjacent square.
