This beautiful property is located not far from the small Provence village of LE VAL, just a few kilometres from ‘BRIGNOLES/LE VAL’ exit 35 on the A8 motorway.
Cross LE VAL...
and take a left towards CARCES (in front of the Cave Coopérative winery). At the second roundabout, take the turning towards BRAS and continue for 4.6 km. You will then see our first signpost. The entrance to the estate is 250 m on your right.
Welcome to our ‘little piece of paradise’. Follow a small gravel path between the vineyards and stop near the parking area under a shady pergola.
Walk along our olive grove and the small lavender field. This is when you discover the estate:
Within a small valley, set back from a very quiet road leading to Bras and onwards from to Saint Maximin la Sainte Baume, the estate extends over around 17 ha. In the 17th century country house, carefully renovated in authentic Provençal style, you will find our home and the gites. Our gites are fully self-contained and private. You can of course come and say hello to us and enjoy our terrace for a cup of coffee or a delicious regional rosé wine !
Enjoy a special experience surrounded by olive trees, lavender and vineyards! Within a landscaped garden, just a metres from our beautiful pool, you can relax on your private terrace.
As a nature lover...
you’ll soon be following the little path that leads to the forest overlooking the property. Let’s not forget we are in the south of France, and that the area is sensitive during very dry summers. This is why, in 2018, we have committed to a campaign of clearing this forest. We have created trails that will enable you to enjoy this area and breathe in the scents of Provence. We will place sun loungers there so that you can drift into simple contemplation about the landscape around you.
As a precaution, smoking is prohibited. The estate is arranged so that the vines act as a screen between the gites and the forest. You are completely safe in the event of major fire hazards. We never compromise on this.
The country house is surrounded by landscaped gardens. We have decided not to overwater the green spaces in summer, to preserve water. The gardens contain iconic shrubs from the region. Not everything can grow under the Provencal sun, but the trees that can are beautiful.
In 2017, we decided to install an environmentally friendly waste water treatment solution that is perfectly integrated into the landscape and which allows us to have state-of-the-art water treatment technology. This is our contribution to your well-being. Water is an asset. Let's respect it!
EXPERIENCE AN EXCEPTIONAL MOMENT OF CALM AMONGST NATURE, LULLED BY CICADA SONG.
Around 4 ha of vineyards
planted with SYRAH, CINSAULT, CABERNET SAUVIGNON and GRENACHE. We took over the holding in 2017, and we have a contract with Cave Coopérative in Montfort sur Argens. We aim to vinify our own production in the coming years.
200 olive trees
that allow us to offer you a smooth, mild and fruity olive oil. We work this olive grove using organic methods, so that our oil is unfiltered to preserve all its aromas. Naturally, we gift our oil to you as a souvenir of your stay.
Lavender and lavandin
line the path that leads you to the gites. We harvest these in late July and offer you small sachets with exceptional scents.
