Holiday Rental House
Les Amandiers is an idyllic family summer rental but it's also an absolute treat in the winter and we've enjoyed many wonderful Christmases here. It is south-facing, set on a hillside in its own grounds with spectacular, panoramic views and an architect designed beautiful private pool and sunbathing terrace. Approached via a little lane, it has a pebbled drive and parking for 3 cars. This romantic rose-coloured old stone house is quietly situated amongst its own terraces of 2,200 m2 planted with almond and 45 olive trees. It overlooks the ancient, little village of Tourrettes and beyond it to St Tropez and the Esterel Hills. It is a l minute walk to Tourrettes and a short (8 mins) walk to Fayence for ones morning croissants, 15 mins to the lake and 30 mins to the nearest beach. It is ideal...Les Amandiers is an idyllic family summer rental but it's also an absolute treat in the winter and we've enjoyed many wonderful Christmases here. It is south-facing, set on a hillside in its own grounds with spectacular, panoramic views and an architect designed beautiful private pool and sunbathing terrace. Approached via a little lane, it has a pebbled drive and parking for 3 cars. This romantic rose-coloured old stone house is quietly situated amongst its own terraces of 2,200 m2 planted with almond and 45 olive trees. It overlooks the ancient, little village of Tourrettes and beyond it to St Tropez and the Esterel Hills. It is a l minute walk to Tourrettes and a short (8 mins) walk to Fayence for ones morning croissants, 15 mins to the lake and 30 mins to the nearest beach. It is ideally situated to explore the coastline, towns, mountains and general allure of Cote D'Azur. The house sits on a south facing grassy terrace upon which our covered dining terrace opens directly into the pretty sitting room. With its Provencal fabrics, its warming open fire and two sofas the sitting room is charming and especially cosy in winter. It adjoins the small but well-equipped kitchen which has a round dining table and door to the terrace. Even in winter we enjoy drinks and meals on the amazing south-facing terrace which even then is often bathed in sunshine. First thing the evocative mist over the mountains is a truly beautiful sight and looking to the right one looks across to the ancient village of Tourrettes. In the evenings the village is beautifully lit and it would be hard to find a more lovely setting! The same view is enjoyed from the main bedroom which is a good size with a door and a Juliet balcony over the terrace. The second twin bedded bedroom is also a good size and is on the 2nd floor. The 3rd bedroom is small with bunk beds but also a wardrobe and chest of drawers. This is our own much-loved home, rather than a commercial rental and is we think, attractively furnished in simple, Provencal style. The surrounding area: Fayence, a short walk from the house is bigger and busier than Tourrettes, a delightful old village bustling with life and attractions. The charming village square markets are frequent and you will find local pottery, fabrics as well as fresh vegetables, cheeses and local specialities. The area has a number of supermarkets too. Near-by is the local Marche Paysan (Farmers Market) which is open 6 days a week in the summer. Produce rarely seen at home can be found - white aubergines and courgettes flowers for example! Les Amandiers is glorious all year around. In the winter, ideals for long lets, very cosy inside and one often awakes to low-lieing mists over the valley. We are very excited by the opening of a lovely wine bar in the village (Tourrettes), run by Emily a friendly English girl. It's in a gorgeous setting and has become a bit of a magnet and has brought together many local people in the winter.More
