Leï Restanques

Characteristic house, covered outdoor terrace. Comfort, peace, privacy. Attractive and authentic grounds, 1.5 ha, nicely overgrown. Private pool. Good on the sun and a lot of shade.

CARCES
The village Carcès is located about 60 km east of Aix-en-Provence, about 60 km north of St. Tropez, and about 110 km west of Nice. It is 15 to 20 minutes north of the A8 motorway (exit Brignoles coming from the west and exit Le Luc from the east). Carcès is located in the quiet hinterland of the Côte d'Azur. There is as much sun as on the coast. The big tourist crowds are at a safe distance, but well accessible for day trips. The region is called Provence verte, the green part of Provence. Carcès is located between vineyards (the nearest wine estate is called Carpe Diem) and low wooded hills at about 150 meters above sea level. It is a typical Provencal village that offers all basic services, including a post office and a large supermarket. On Saturday there is a market.

THE TERRAIN
The house is located at a small kilometer from the village, at the end of a small road. There is no noise at all from a road. Leï Restanques (the walls) is the name of the characteristic house. It is located on a 1.5 hectare site with lots of privacy and with many atmospheric spots. The site consists of a small, shallow valley with numerous terraces bordered by ancient walls. These walls are hand-stacked to aesthetic delights. The walls are tangible at the expense of how much effort in the past years the terrain has been brought into culture (for viticulture). The site has also partly been used as a quarry, now visible in a single cairn.

The terraces are easily accessible and are connected by scenic paths. Olive trees grow on some of the terraces. There are fig trees and almond trees. Furthermore, there are many holm oaks (remains green) and summer oaks (let his leaves fall) and further away from the house pines. Part of the north slope is a rough forest. The site is a botanical haven: many wild plants, including orchids, grow on the entire site. In the early spring the irises color the terrain blue and in May the broom turns a slope yellow. Kitchen herbs such as mint, thyme and rosemary can be found everywhere. The mossy paths on the north slope depend on the weather yellow or green. A cypress marks the entrance to the terrain.

You can do everything on the property. There is a small field. There is a badminton court (with net) decorated. There is a corner with a bench where you can retreat. In another place a hammock has been hung which you can doze off in comfortably. The site is a true paradise for children: what about the tree house in four floors.
At a distance from the house is a swimming pool of 10x5 meters. Adjacent to the swimming pool is a shallow part where you can relax in the water sunbathing and where small children can play. On the terrace by the pool there are four sun loungers and there is a hot shower.

The terrain has a very favorable sun. The house faces southwest on a sunny slope. The sun is not obstructed by trees or hills which makes it pleasant outside the high season and in the winter around the house. There are many shady spots on the site. The outdoor terrace provides protection in the summer against the (high-quality) sun and in winter offers a sheltered spot in the (low-lying) sun. From the house there is a wide view of the private grounds. In some places there is a distant view to the east or west.

THE HOUSE
The house has been built in a traditional way and has many authentic details. The whole was completely renovated a few years ago and newly furnished. It is spacious and fully equipped. There is a fireplace and electric heating. Everything is arranged for a stay of 10 people: 8 in the house and possibly 2 in the guest house. There is plenty of crockery. The format is as follows:
Hall with separate toilet. Living room with conservatory and open kitchen, 65 m2, and adjacent covered outdoor terrace, 25 m2, with large table and 10 terrace chairs. From there you walk straight onto the terrain. There are four more comfortable chairs and a garden table with 6 chairs.
Bedrooms: there are two bedrooms with private bathroom / toilet. Two bedrooms share the third bathroom. The beds are 90x200 or twice 90x200, in all four bedrooms there is a hanging / cupboard.

GUEST HOUSE
At about 100 meters from the house is hidden in the forest an idyllic and clean guest house. You will find a bedroom with a double bed, a conservatory room and a simple kitchen. Sanitary (including hot shower) is nearby in the open air. For the romantics and the tranquility.

We have been enjoying our site in Provence since 2001. With great enthusiasm, we have radically and thoroughly refurbished the old house into a comfortable stay. We have built a nice pool at 20 meters from the house. Everything while maintaining the beauty of the terrain. A wonderful place to relax, to enjoy the silence and the smells of nature, to receive friends and to eat with a good glass of wine. Who follows?
