Overview

About the property

Villa (4 bed - sleeps 8) + Cottage (sleeps 4), Private heated pool + poolhouse

Belle Colline (https://www.facebook.com/bellecolline.fr/) is a fantastically designed luxury villa purposefully arranged to cater for families and larger groups of friends. Nestled between vineyards and hillside woodland, near the picturesque village of Plan de la Tour, it is a wonderful place to relax and unwind in the peaceful French countryside. With numerous outdoor patios and wonderful views, it is the perfect place to enjoy the great outdoor Provence experience with the knowledge you are in a safe environment. We are only a short drive from the hustle and bustle of coastal towns such as St.Tropez, Ste. Maxime, and Frejus, so there is easy access to a great selection of beaches to chose from every day. Picturesque hilltop villages such as Gassin, Grimaud and La Garde Freinet are also nearby.

With 4 bedrooms in the main house and a separate self contained cottage sleeping up to 4, Belle Colline offers accommodation for up to 3 families or one large extended family without people feeling on top of each other.

Amenities include:

- heated pool with safety fence

- pool house with BBQ/kitchenette/fridge and WC

- outdoor games e.g. floodlit boules, table tennis

- WiFi, satellite TV, DVD player, Sonos

- washing machine + dryer

- air conditioning in guest cottage, some mobile units in main house

Belle Colline has recently undergone a complete renovation - both house and garden have been redesigned and the result is a stunning setting for a memorable family holiday.

About Stephen Nundy

We are a family with two toddlers based in London who want to be able to relax when we arrive at Belle Colline in the safe knowledge everything is perfectly set up! As a result we have everything you need for a family holiday already setup inc spare pushchairs, highchairs, stairgates, cots etc so we (and you) can travel that little bit lighter.

Stephen Nundy purchased this villa in 2010

Why Stephen Nundy chose Le Plan-de-la-Tour

Very well connected with frequent flights to the area, wanted the safety and peacefulness of the area whilst remaining close to beaches, villages and attractions of the Cote D'Azur.

The local town itself has all the shops you would want for and is wonderfully inviting and safe, allowing us to spend evenings out in the local restaurants and bars whilst the children play in pedestrianised areas.

What makes this villa unique

We renovated Belle Colline under the guidance of a London based interior designer who also has a home in the region and was able to source local craftsmen, furnishings to ensure it is in keeping with the local Provençal style . As a result the home has been extensively remodelled to our exact requirements to ensure the family comes first. The layout has been designed to create 3 separate 'zones' so 3 families can stay together each with their own full bathroom facilities with the kitchen/lounge/dining room and various patios being the central meeting places.

We've put a lot of effort into making sure it is as a safe and fun as an environment as possible with minimal number of steps inside the house and with a pool fence completely surrounding the pool area.

Great family friendly home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Belle Colline and got to feel what life in a real French village would feel like. Stephen was incredibly helpful in planning all the little details (including sending photos of the baby items available!) and in planning our day trips/activities. Pip, the house manager, really saved our vacation, by connecting us to a doctor in a small medical emergency.

The house is located 20-30 minutes from a number of quaint hill towns, so you can do a number of day trips. However, The approach to the house is a bit bumpy due to the dirt road, so beware if anyone in your party gets motion sickness.

Once you are in the house, there are toys and books for kids, a well-stocked kitchen, and lots of explore on the property. We even used rosemary from the garden to cook our last meal at the home. Thanks for everything!

Wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful family vacation in the beautiful villa, Belle Colline. The property is surrounded by vineyards and is nestled near a lovely, quiet little village. The surroundings are very serene, but the glitz and glamour of St Tropez and other Cote d'Azur hotspots are not far away. We liked the decor in the house and especially appreciated the pool house and barbecue. Another plus was the child proof gate around the swimming pool. The owner thoughtfully provided notes on near by restaurants and day trips and the house manager was very prompt in answering our calls. All in all, a wonderful experience and we are looking forward to going back next year.

Very Nice Mas in Plan de la Tour

  • 5 of 5

Lovely Mas in Plan de la Tour which is ideal to spend time in the south of France, to visit the little villages or the beaches of the cote d'Azur. Ideal for families, peaceful environment and very comfortable house. The owner is great. Will happily return!

Stunning Villa - perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We have been fortunate enough to find and stay at Belle Colline for the past two years. The villa is simply amazing; beautiful location and remote but not so remote that you can't get to the nearest town, Plan de la Tour, within a few minutes by car. You must have a car to stay here and it is around an hours journey from Nice airport so very convenient. On both occasions, we stayed with a group of friends and used the main house and the out house for sleeping in - both were fantastic. The owners have thought of everything - Sonos, DVD's, games, books, English TV and an outside poolside which has a fridge and BBQ and a well equipped kitchen with every possible utensil you would need. Thoroughly recommended - we hope to return again soon.
