CARCES Carcès The village lies approximately 60 km east of Aix-en-Provence, 60 km north of St. Tropez, and about 110 miles west of Nice. It is 15 to 20 minutes drive north of the A8 motorway (exit Brignoles coming from the west and exit Le Luc from the east). Carcès located in the quiet hinterland of the Côte d'Azur. There is as much sun as on the coast. The big tourist crowds is at a safe distance, but easily accessible for day trips. The region called Provence verte, the green part of Provence. Carcès between vineyards (the nearest winery called Carpe Diem) and low wooded hills about 150 meters above sea level.

THE FIELD The house is one kilometer from the village, at the end of a road. There is no noise at all of a road. Lei Restanques (the walls) is the name of the typical house. It is a 1.5 hectare (*CONTENT HIDDEN*) with privacy and with many attractive places. The (*CONTENT HIDDEN*) consists of a small, shallow valley with numerous terraces which are bordered by ancient walls. These walls are hand stacked aesthetic delights. The walls are palpable at the expense of much effort in earlier years, the area under cultivation (for wine) is charged. The (*CONTENT HIDDEN*) is also partly been used as a quarry, still visible in a single heap. The terraces are easily accessible and connected by picturesque paths. On a part of the olive trees grow terraces. There are fig trees and almond trees. Also there are many oaks (solid green) and oak (late leaf fall) and further away from the house pine. Part of the north slope is a rugged forest. The area is a paradise for botanists: the whole field grow many wild plants including orchids. In early spring color the land blue irises in May and colors the yellow gorse slope. Kitchen Herbs like mint, thyme and rosemary are everywhere. The mossy paths on the north slope depends on the weather yellow or green. A cypress marks the entrance to the premises. Around the house are native shrubs and garden plants. You can do anything on the ground. There is a football area. There is a badminton court (with net) furnished. There is a nook with a bench where you can pull back. Elsewhere, a hammock hung where you can doze off in delicious. The area is a paradise for children: what about the treehouse in four floors. At some distance from the house is a swimming pool of 10x5 meters. Following the pool is a shallow area created where you stretch out in the water can sunbathe and where small children can play. On the terrace by the pool are four chairs and a hot shower. The (*CONTENT HIDDEN*) has a very favorable insolation. The house is located on the southwest against a sunny slope. The sun is not obstructed by trees or hills, making it the off season and in winter is pleasant around the house. On the grounds are many shady places.

We have enjoyed since 2001 from our (*CONTENT HIDDEN*) in Provence. Full of enthusiasm, we have the old house and indeed radically refurbished to a comfortable stay. We have a beautiful landscaped pool 20 meters from the house. All while maintaining the beauty of the (*CONTENT HIDDEN*). A lovely place to come to enjoy the peace and quiet to the scents of nature, to receive friends and eat good food with a good glass of wine. Who's next?
