Picture your perfect villa in Provence, and there’s a good chance it will look like Mas le Chêne

Built in warm stone, with shuttered windows, and surrounded by olive groves, vineyards and orchards, it’s the perfect place for a group of family or friends to spend a relaxing holiday

Imagine sunny days around the pool, or outside of the main summer season, relaxing in the wood-fired Sacndinavian hot tub, before a simple lunch of local bread, cheese and wine on one of the many sunny terraces, or shady spot to be found dotted around the property

The charming village of Cotignac is just 5km away, and has a good choice of restaurants, cafes and bars. There’s also a butcher, baker, fishmonger and a great market - everything you need to live like a local

Mas le Chêne sleeps up to 8 people in three en-suite bedrooms, one of which is in the annexe guest house

The annexe and the Mas are linked by a stunning garden room with comfy armchairs, a fireplace, and two walls of windows, so that the views across the vineyards and gardens can be enjoyed all year round. Two of the bedrooms have double beds, one has an en suite shower room, the other an en suite bathroom. The third bedroom has an ensuite shower room and four single beds, so will particularly appeal to children, or two of the beds can be pushed together to form a double, making this a good family room

The villa is decorated throughout in neutral tones, making for a relaxed ambience, no more so than in the open plan living area, with soft sofas, an elegant dining table and cosy wood-burning stove. The well-equipped kitchen has everything you need to cook up a delicious meal, and there's even a summer kitchen, equipped with a sink, fridge and barbecue oven with a hatch overlooking a terrace between the house and the pool. It's the perfect shaded spot to eat on warm summer evenings

After dinner take a stroll around the extensive grounds, enjoy a game of petanque, find a quiet spot to read a book, or chat with friends - there is plenty of space for everyone to spread out

ABOUT THE AREA

With the beautiful and unspoilt village of Cotignac, known locally as Petit St Tropez, just a few minutes drive away, you'll find plenty to do without spending hours in the car

The village has a typical provencal market on Tuesday mornings, and is a great place to pick up local produce - fresh fruit and veg, olives, honey, oil, truffles and cured meats - as well as lavender, ceramics and other souvenirs. Why not pick up everything you need for a picnic and head out for a walk?

Just 7km from Cotignac is the pretty village of Sillans la Cascade. From here it's a lovely walk on forest paths to the waterfall. Further afield there's windsurfing and sailing on Lac Sainte-Croix, rafting, canoeing and climbing in the Gorge du Verdun, and you'll then be able to head back to Mas le Chêne in time to cool off in the pool, perhaps before a gentle game of boules and a glass of local wine

The pool is completely surrounded by an ironwork fence for safety, and for summer 2016 there is a new ironwork pergola to provide much-needed shade down by the pool

Mas le Chêne can be reached easily in just over an hour from the airports at Marseille, Toulon or Nice. It’s a great base for exploring the villages of Provence, and the vineyards that surround them - don’t forget to taste the wine!

Further south there are the chic resorts of Saint-Tropez, Grimaud and Frejus. If you can stand the crowds, they are worth a day trip! Marseilles is less busy and certainly worth a visit - its role as a port and its proximity to Africa gives the city an international feel, particularly in the Panier shopping quarter. If you are there in June, try to get to the Fete du Panier - a lively two-day celebration of the city’s cultural diversity

Please note: from beginning of April to mid October there is an outdoor pool at the property

For safety reasons the wood-fired Scandinavian hot tub at the property is not available from beginning of June to beginning of October. In severe dry conditions we may have to discontinue use of the hot tub, outside of these dates, at the request of the local fire department. Thank you for your understanding
