This beautiful old country house is located in the middle of a nature reserve near the village of La Mole in the heart of Provence and the Massif des Maures, the hills of the Moors. Only twenty minutes’ drive from St Tropez, La Bastide was built in the 19th century. Set in the midst of some fifty acres of woods and vineyards on the edge of a protected forest, the main house is built on a gentle grassy slope with a view of the spectacular hills of Provence. The lower terrace, which runs along the front of the house, is in the shade of a hundred year old plane tree and its younger offspring and provides the comfort of outside living with immeasurable charm.
The accommodation is well presented and comfortably furnished with an elegantly decorated main Sitting Room with a large fireplace for cool autumn evenings. In the heat of the summer, the old natural flagstone floor of the ground floor rooms ensures constant and welcome cool in the house. There is a separate study, also with fireplace, and a desk and separate sitting room so the children can get stuck into their favourite films without disturbing the others! The dining room is decorated in Tuscan style and seats twelve with doors opening to the lower terrace. The bedroom accommodation is again spacious with a huge master bedroom with sitting area, desk and sofa and door leading onto the upper terrace behind the house. Many of the bedrooms feature fabric-covered walls and all six are air conditioned.
