Property description

We are back on VRBO after 2 years away with our beautifully restored, bare-stone walled/ wooden-beamed Provencale house 20 mins from Cannes and the stunning Cote d’Azur. 1hr to mountains, gorges and ski resorts. 3 Star Accredited (French Tourist Board, max. 4 stars)

The steep stairs, typical of old properties in the region mean the house isn't suitable for young children nor guests with mobility issues.

Accommodation:
Spread over 3 floors:
Ground Floor features the dining room (traditional oak dining table seats 6-8 with high-backed chairs), an ecological wood-pellet burner, toilet and new, fully fitted kitchen featuring traditional traviata stone tiles, and American style fridge/freezer with ice maker and carved stone double-sink;

Middle Floor is home to a large lounge , Satellite TV, hi-fi, a second wood burning stove, L-shaped chocolate suede sofa, brown leather coffee table and matching desk

Top floor features two double bedrooms (one large, one small with a queen-sized double bed), bathroom and ample hanging space.

The terrace is a real gem, spacious with superb views out over the valley, under fragrant jasmine and bougainvillea for great al fresco dining.

A light afternoon breeze from the valley means it‘s rarely too hot; the hamlet is very tranquil and relaxing for long, lazy evenings as the sun goes down with a chilled glass of rosé on the terrace. We've an outdoor lounge set as well, for an even more informal way to chill.

If things get too hot, wander down the path to the pool, great for a quick dip to cool off under the olive trees, then either enjoy the 50m squared deck relaxing on a sun lounger to take in the sun until late evening or chill out on the in style on the 4-poster daybed in the shaded lounge area.

The pool and lower garden are truly magical and very romantic at night with atmospheric lighting around the deck and in the olive trees, it's an oasis of calm and truly ideal to kick back and relax.

If you fancy something more active there's a very pretty canal 5 minutes walk down the hill or if you're seeking more action we have great walks and hikes very nearby; plus canyoning, kayaking, ballooning and much, much more...

Life really doesn't get much better than this! But don't take our word for it, come and see for yourselves...

We look forward to welcoming you to our home and the Cote d'Azure

What others thought:

Bing & Terry Shen, San Francisco:
'We celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary belatedly in Provence, after planning the trip for 7 years.

We couldn’t have found a more lovely and romantic place than this charming farmhouse -- “Les Bengalis”. (The house has nothing to do with tigers – it is named after a pair of birds which always stay and fly together, according to our host.)

We plan to return for a second visit, hopefully in the not too far future.
Best Impressions:
Fragrance from flowers and herbs is intoxicating, view of the surrounding hills is simply beautiful, watching a thunder storm from the bedroom window is refreshing, Best Hours: Candle-light dinner on the terrace.'

Jane, Royal Opera House, London:
'The house is beautiful in a very quiet hamlet, if woken up it is by birds singing!! Neighbours are warm, welcoming and friendly, the hosts too - they gave us lots of valuable tips and information on things to see, visit and do in the area. It's a really lovely place to stay, you won't want to go home!!'

Berengere, Putney:
'Stunning Mas furninshed with taste, located in a small hamlet away from roads. Quiet, peaceful, perfect for relaxation - one to recommend!'

Carol, Colchester, England:
'The house is wonderful, very comfortable and has everything you could need. It is a lovely place to stay in for the day and swim or laze around on the terrace, surounded with flowers and olive trees.

The hosts are very friendly and helpful. Because they are local they know all the best places, restaurants and beaches to visit and will help you as much as they can. The French neighbours are also very nice and invited us to a barbecue, which was great. I really enjoyed my stay and am hoping to go back soon.'

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: I live and work in London within the digital marketing and CRM arena, and commute back to France regularly, working from home Fridays and Mondays. Commuting offers me the perfect mix of city pace and rural tranquility, a great antidote to the cut and thrust of city living. I love this part of the world, it is truly stunning with a great, rugged and unspoiled coastline as you head east into the Var. We feel we are able to have the best of both worlds, we're just 20 mins to the coast and the sea, but in a very tranquil, rustic setting - a far cry from the heat and congestion of the coast in the height of summer. There's a lot of activities within easy reach as well, we go sea kayaking and have our own boats; we often head into the mountains and gorges for some great and varied treks and walks; in the winter we have two small (but perfectly formed!!) ski resorts just 45 minutes away, with the big resorts of Isola 2000 and Auron just an hour and a half away.

Why the Owner Chose Peymeinade, France:
3 words sum it up: Beauty, Tranquility, Activity

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Friendly but discreet neighbours, fantastic views and plenty to do
