Set in the heart of the rolling hills above St Tropez and the Côte d'Azur, Mas des Issarts enjoys sweeping views over the wooded hillsides of the Massif des Maures. As you approach the property you are greeted by abundant olive trees, which are still farmed to this day, and the unmistakeable scent of lavender so characteristic of this region of France.
This delightful old stone farmhouse has been thoughtfully restored and comprises an eclectic mix of original features such as wooden beams, exposed stone walls and recessed alcoves with contemporary furnishings and vibrant 'tadelakt' walls - a Moroccan plastering technique which gives a wonderfully warm, smooth finish. Private and secluded, the property provides the perfect hideaway from the crowds, yet the coastal resorts are just 40 minutes' drive away.
The thick stone walls of the house naturally provide an element of shelter from the heat of the day, though sun worshippers will adore the large infinity pool, fringed by wooden decking, ideal for a lazy poolside afternoon and from where there are the most gratifying views over the surrounding countryside.
A small handcrafted iron balcony provides another spectacular viewpoint from which to admire this beautiful setting whilst the terrace at the rear of the property looks up to bounteous olive groves. A connecting corridor on the ground floor leads to a pretty garden room with two curtained bedrooms on a mezzanine.
The coast at Fréjus and St Raphaël is only 35km away and the bustling towns of Cannes and Nice are also easy day trips. A drive of about an hour and a half northwards takes you to the beautiful lake of Sainte-Croix and to the stunning Verdon gorges, the highest in Europe.
Local access is via an unmade track, unsuitable for low slung vehicles.
When paying the Small Party Rate, both double bedrooms (ground floor and second floor) will be prepared. If you wish to have use of a twin instead of a double bedroom, please advise at the time of booking.
