Approaching this handsomely restored villa, its drive flanked with ancient olives, you’ll feel pleased with your choice. There’s a well-planned, well-kept air to the whole place; the right balance of plenty of things to do, and a sublime setting – with magical views of the perched village above – for doing nothing very much.
Walk through medieval villages, taste local wines; head for the beach at Bandol, take a trip to the Iles Calanques, or to Marseille. You’ll find a good local market on most days – and fresh breakfasts left for you – so no dashing out for croissants. And there are Su’s recommended restaurants to try, Michelin starred if you like.
Children can look forward to jungle gym, a trampoline and ping-pong; Go Karting at the Circuit Paul Ricard and swinging through the trees at the Royaume des Arbres.
