Callas house description

This beautiful villa with pool sits on a terraced hillside acre with a lovely established garden and 60+ olive trees. It overlooks Callas, a charming village just 500 metres away with shops including grocery store, wine shop, olive mill and shop, post office, restaurants, a weekly market, and services. Walk for your morning croissants or evening meal!

Newly furnished to high standards with plenty of local antiques and art, this classic Provencal villa offers a myriad of comfortable living spaces, both indoors and out, in which to relax and enjoy your holiday. One hour drive from the Nice and Toulon international airports and the train station at Aix-en-Provence, and only 15 minutes’ drive from the A8 motorway. Avignon and Marseilles are approximately one and a quarter hours away.

Nearby activities include: lively market towns - including the fabulous Sunday market at Le Muy; St. Tropez, Cannes and other famed beaches; golf; historic sights; gourmet dining; boating and fishing; Lower Alps skiing; and natural wonders such as the Gorges du Verdon. Most are within 20-30 minutes' drive.

The entrance to the villa is welcoming, with a light-filled entrance hall and guest toilet. A staircase to the right of the entrance hall leads to two second floor bedrooms, each with twin beds, and a full bathroom including bath and shower. Several steps lead down from the entrance to the main floor. The left wing of the main floor contains one bedroom with twin beds and lovely antiques, a full bathroom with shower, and a master bedroom with a king-sized bed and French doors leading to the outdoor terrace and a wonderful view of Callas. To the right, the main floor dining room has a large antique dining table able to seat 10 and French doors leading to an outdoor terrace, shaded in wisteria. The living room has a sofa, armchairs, fireplace and, hidden behind antique armoire doors, a satellite television and sound system; the living room also has double French doors, leading on to the outdoor terrace and looking out over Callas. The well-equipped kitchen leads to a covered outdoor summer kitchen with built-in barbeque and sink, and a large terrace with a teak dining table able to seat 10, with an awning that can be rolled out for shade if desired. Also attached to the kitchen is a garage/utility room, with a washing machine, large freezer, and drying rack.

Available year-round. Centrally heated. Not equipped for babies or very young children. No pets or smoking please.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: We are a Toronto-based family of four and started visiting the Callas area while living in Asia with young children. We have a wide variety of interests but all love coming to Callas to relax, explore, and immerse ourselves in all things French.

Why the Owner Chose Callas:
We bought our villa after renting in the area for many years. Every time we left, we had a longer list of things to do on our next visit, and so we knew we'd never get bored! The list now includes everything from great markets and restaurants to running routes and basketball courts to beaches and cultural sites - we love sharing it with our guests. Callas is also a great place to relax - have a morning cafe au lait in the square, a leisurely lunch on the terrace and an afternoon reading under the shade of the mulberry tree or by the pool. Perfection!
