Property description

You will find in La Calisanne everything you may be searching in Provence : the sun, the quietness, the sound of the cicadas, the freshness of a pool and above all, the light and the nature.

To understand the magic of La Calisanne, just read what one of our guest wrote :

'The house could not be more perfect, it has been beautifully designed and we have loved every minute here. My son and husband both play piano and the house has been filled with music. I have enjoyed strolling around the garden and also the views of the Bessillon hills that change by the hour. It is a little piece of heaven.' Sandra P., London.

A FANTASTIC LOCATION
The immediate surroundings are in the heart of nature (vineyards, hills, forests, scrubland) along a no exit road. Here, you may feel at the end of the world… only 3 minutes from the village of Bras, 35 minutes from the elegant Aix-en-Provence and 10 minutes only fromSaint-Maximin and its pittoresque market.

A LUXURIOUS CONTEMPORARY HOUSE
La Calissane is a traditional “Provencal mas” outside and a ECO-friendly luxurious contemporary house inside. Totally refurbished in 2009, the house has been furnished with love, offering you the state-of-the-art of comfort and amenities : a swimming pool biologically eppurated (without chlorine), air conditioning in every room (powered by heat pumps). Each bedroom comes with a private en suite complete bathroom or shower bathroom with design tubs and faucets. The walls in polished concrete, the ceramic or wooden floors give them a very cosy and contemporary atmosphere. You will also enjoy high speed internet, satellite TV with international channels and home cinema. For the gourmets, the kitchen is equipped with everything they can dream.

PLENTY OF THINGS TO DO
You will start the day after a fresh, relaxing and absolutely silent night. The sunshine illuminates the house. Open the windows and have your breakfast on the terrace, listening only to the birds. Then you may choose to go for a swim in our infinity swimming pool. You will appreciate the softness of the water chlorine-free.
Or you may decide to go the village of Bras and buy some bread, fresh vegetables from local producers, newspaper, meat and everything you may need. On Wednesday you will experience the famous typical provençal market of Saint-Maximin facing the XI th century Basilique. You may visit the rests of Sainte-Marie-Madeleine, yes, the one of the book, in the crypt. Or if you are there at the end of July, you will have the unique opportunity to participate to the procession : Marie-Madeleine is convoyed in the streets of the town followed by the habitants singing in provençal... a unique, quite impressive experience.
On other days you may spend hours walking in the beautiful streets of Aix-en-Provence and visit its museums, boutiques or enjoy the terraces of the Cours Mirabeau. This attractive and refined city is really like a small Paris.
You may also like to visit numerous vineyards around Bras and Saint-Maximin and taste the famous Coteaux Varois. Or go to the beach at Cassis, Hyères or Saint-Tropez. Or kayaking in the Gorges du Verdon. Or play golf at Nans-les-pins. Or go to Marseille, its Vieux-Port and Calanques and taste the bouillabaisse. All of this, less than one hour drive.

Plenty of our guests feel so good in the house and its 5.600 SQM garden that they are 'stuck' here by the incredibly zen atmosphere. For those who play and those who like to listen, the grand piano will provide you magic nights.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: My husband and myself are frequent travelers so we know very well what is important in a house : the location, the light, the comfort, the quietness, the accessibility. Passionate with music, architecture, design, art and gastronomy, we are keen to share our taste and experience with other travelers. To understand the quality of our properties, please have a look on our reviews : vrbo 351993 vrbo 336932 homeaway 3494891

Why the Owner Chose Bras, France:
We falled in love with the place for the view, the nature and the absolute quietness. Nowhere in the world (and we travel a lot) we found such a zen micro-climate not far from a town. We built the house in 2009 and refurbished it thoroughly. For us, every day here is a delight.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Located in one of the most authentic countrysides of the Var, this contemporary ultra-luxury house facing an amazing landscape offers an exceptional quietness. You will enjoy an infinity no-chlorine pool, a design house, a fully equipped gourmet kitchen, a grand piano. All this, some minutes only from Aix and all the famous centers of interest in Provence. La Calisanne is carbon free and ECO friendly.
