Behind the terrace sits the snug/library, which has a TV/DVD player as well as a plentiful collection of books. Behind the snug is a WC and a laundry-room complete with washing machine and tumble-drier. Adjoining the snug are two double-bedrooms, with super king-size beds, a shared bathroom with shower and a separate WC. One of the rooms has a balcony which connects it to the front terrace.
On the first floor is the luxurious master bedroom, which faces south and commands superb vistas. The room has an en-suite. Across the corridor is the final bedroom, which is a decent size but has height restrictions. This room is suitable for a couple or 4 children, as the superking bed can be opened up into two singles, and there is a double sofabed. The room also has an en-suite shower and WC.
The villa is very baby/family friendly. There are two high chairs and a cot, plus lots of toys, puzzles and books to entertain the children. There is an extensive DVD collection too. In the basement, there is a table-tennis table, a darts board and yoga mats, if anyone needs to escape the midday sun.
Outside, the villa has a balcony which runs along the front of the house. The 12m x 5m swimming pool is found on the south-side of the house, running east-west. There is plenty of wooden-decking around the pool. The owners have installed gates and fencing around the decking area for child safety. In a shaded area behind the house, there is a boules court so you can compete with the locals in the village later on! Next to the boules court is a gas BBQ. The garden is the owners’ passion and has been recently planted, using locally sourced plants.
This villa is only a few minutes’ walk from the centre of the village of Claviers. Here you’ll find several excellent restaurants, as well a shop and a bar perfect for sitting outside, watching village life and enjoying an aperitif.
Local attractions include the gorgeous vineyards towards Le Muy, Les Gorges du Verdon/Lac de Sainte Croix and the many beautiful hill-top villages synonymous with the area. Further afield you’ll find opportunities to go cycling, hiking, or play golf. If you love the beach, the coast and St Tropez is 1hr 15 mins drive away.
