This Provençal historical farm house is a family home and has been thoughtfully decorated with rustic and antique furniture to retain its cosy feel and original features, such as the stone stairs and floors, wooded beams, windows and roof terrace. Positioned in the central square of the town its situated to enjoy all of the eccentricities of French village life. The Monday morning market is right outside the house, where you can buy delicious local cheese and meat, wine, olive oils, salts from the Camargue region and bread and cakes. During the summer months many musical events take place, from Jazz evenings, to Spanish guitar and local bands. The award winning restaurants are known to locals who congregate with their extended families for lunch on weekends all year round. If you like steak then La Salle a Manger is for you, L’Oustaou is just outside the door, or try Le Nid Cuisine, Le Cigalon, La Fleur de Them, for more casual dining: les Melisan, Cafe du Commerce, Cafe du Midi, Bar la Remise, Au Four a Bois for Pizza and many others very nearby within meters of the house. And if you prefer to eat at home then there is no need to cook as the local deli provides excellent ready made delicious local delicacies and for your daily bread the two French bakeries have divine patisseries and breads. There are two grocery stores, a fruit and vegetable shop as well as many other places to sit and sip a Pastis or glass of Rose in the town square, or buy your own wine and relax on the terrace watching the sun go down. The apartment consists of two rooms. A large main room with a double bed, large sofa, small table, wardrobe and fitted kitchen. The other room has a shower toilet and large wash basin. Studio Mimosa has 1 studio bedroom, 1 shower room and toilet, sleeps a maximum of 2 • Self-catering • Fully fitted kitchen area in main room • One double bed • Floor area 27 m² • Large Sofa, small dining table • View overlooking the central village square • En-suite 'rain' shower room and toilet • Fridge, stove, microwave, crockery and cutlery are provided • Crockery, cutlery, pots, pans, cotton linen, electricity and water included • Washing machine • Towels for indoor use only • No hidden extras. • Electric heaters for winter use • Original ceramic ochre-coloured oxaganol tomettes tiled floors • Pop downstairs for your coffee and breakfast, as well as delicious Plat du jour at mid-day – no need to cook at all! - Over 8 restaurants and bars in the village just downstairs • No smokers please • Lots of free and secure parking in village 50 meters of the house • Toulon Airport 30 mintues • Nearest beach 30 minutes • Marseille 1 1/2 hours The village is lively all year round and the studio has immediate access to local restaurants, bars, shops and facilities. This gives you all the benefits of a hotel. You decide if you want to eat in our out.

Coffee is served in the café downstairs from six in the morning. There are over 8 restaurants and bars in the village, 5 of which are less than 300 meters from the house. The nearest supermarket and 3 bakeries are all less than 500 meters away.

About the neighbourhood
With warm winters and mainly sunny days it’s a great place to visit all year round. The average daytime temperatures in winter ranges from 10°C to 28°C. Early in the spring it might rain, but sometimes it doesn't rain until May or early June, average temperatures range from 16°C to 28°C. Summers are usually hot and dry, with daytime temperatures ranging from 25°C to 35°C. There are many activities to take part in locally as well as interesting villages to visit nearby, rivers to swim in and waterfalls and caves to see. The countryside is spectacular and if it’s beach you want then St Maxime is only 35 minutes away, or the Lac St Croix is 40 minutes away and much quieter in the summer months.
