There is one bedroom with two bunk beds so occupancy by 10 people is possible.

Villa La Farigoulette is built on a hill on the outskirts of Carcès. From 3 of the 4 bedrooms, the living room and the terrace around the pool, you have a magnificent view of the village Carcès. Through the front door you enter the spacious hall. On the left, you find a separate toilet. Also the master bedroom with a spacious bathroom with sink, shower, bath and a toilet.
On the right side of the hall a staircase leads down to the other bedrooms. This way of building guarantees that during the summer you have three nice cool bedrooms. One of them is a very spacious sleep-/recreation room with two bunk beds that allows the use of this room by 4 people. In this room there is also a pool table and fitness equipment. Of the other two bedrooms on the bedroom floor, one has a double bed and a sink. The other bedroom has two single beds and also a sink. Finally, there is a bathroom with shower and toilet. The bedrooms have a private terrace.
From the hall, straight ahead along a wardrobe, you will enter the spacious living room with its wood-beamed ceilings, nice dinner table and comfortable seats and a fireplace. Here you will find the flatscreen TV (with international, Dutch and Belgian channels), stereo/CD and DVD. From the living room you go into a large kitchen on the left. The kitchen has a 5-ring induction hob, dishwasher, oven/microwave, large American fridge and freezer with icemaker.
The whole house has floor heating. Living room and kitchen have an exit to the covered terraces which connect to the spacious terraces around the swimming pool of 8.5 by 4.5 meters. At he pool an outdoor shower is available and from the teak sun chairs with its comfortable cushions you can enjoy water, the sun and a nice view.
Villa La Farigoulette is within walking distance of the typical Provencal village Carcès. From the terrace, equipped with a gas barbecue, and from the living room you have a wide and beautiful view over the vineyards up to Carcès. At night this gives also spectacular views which you can enjoy while sipping a nice glass of rosé. Although the house is located on the edge of residential area, the privacy is optimal. The site is not enclosed by a fence.
Villages like Sillans, Salernes, Lorgues, Tourtour and Aups lie within a radius of 20 km and are worth a visit. The beaches of Frejus and St. Tropez are ca. 50 km away. The cities of Aix-en-Provence, Nice, Cannes, Toulon/Hyeres can all be reached within approximately 1 hour by car.
In Carcès you will find your baker, butcher, supermarket Ecomarché, a bank, cafes and restaurants. A few miles away lays Cotignac with many charming terraces of bars and restaurants. Under the platanes of the ‘Cours’ of Cotignac you can dream away with a pastis or a cup of coffee and in the back of your mind the question whether you still want to return to the ‘cool’ north. There are many Provencal bistros and restaurants in the vicinity of Carcès.
The house is ideally situated for a wide range of activities to enjoy including fishing, kayaking, cycling/mountain biking and hiking through the nearby vineyards. There are over 10 golf courses in the area and it is also possible to play tennis and ride horseback. In Carcès you are on about 45 minutes distance from the natural beauty of the Gorges du Verdon, ideal for mountain climbing, mountain biking, canoeing, pedalos etc.
Wine and more……
If you love wine, Carcès, Cotignac and surroundings have a lot to offer. The rosé is of course the main product of this region, but nowadays also good white and red wines are produced. If you are interested, Margherita and Ron, your contact persons on location, will give you addresses of some good wineries. On request we can organize for you during one of the the afternoons or evenings of your stay, a wine tasting in La Farigoulette.
There is also the possibility, in addition to the wine, to prepare some food for you. About the details, you can discuss with us your wishes, to make sure that your introduction to the wines of the Var, or the deepening of your knowledge about this subject, will be enjoyable and within your budget.
