Holiday house

Leï Restanques

9.0

Characteristic house, covered outside terrace. Comfort, tranquility, privacy. Atmospheric and authentic terrain, 1.8 hectares, beautifully overgrown. Private pool. Good on the sun and lots of shade.

CARCES
The village of Carcès is approx. 60 km east of Aix-en-Provence, approx. 60 km north of St.Tropez, and approx. 110 km west of Nice. It is a 15 to 20-minute drive north of the A8 motorway (Brignoles exit coming from the west and Le Luc exit from the east). Carcès is located in the quiet hinterland of the Côte d'Azur. There is just as much sun as on the coast. The large tourist crowds are at a safe distance, but easily accessible for day trips. The region is called Provence verte, the green part of Provence. Carcès is located between vineyards (the closest winery 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 amenities, including a post office and a large supermarket. There is a market on Saturdays.

THE TERRAIN
The house is a short kilometer from the village, at the end of a small road. There is no road noise at all. Leï Restanques (the walls) is the name of the characteristic house. It is located on a 1.8-hectare site with lots of privacy and with many attractive spots. The terrain consists of a small, shallow valley with numerous terraces that are surrounded by ancient walls. These walls are stacked by hand into aesthetic delights. The walls make tangible at the expense of how much effort in earlier years the site has been cultivated (for viticulture). The site has also been partly used as a quarry, now visible in a single cairn.

The terraces are easily accessible and are connected by picturesque paths. Olive trees grow on some of the terraces. There are fig trees and almond trees. There are also many holm oaks (stays green) and summer oaks (drops its leaves) and further away from the house pines. Part of the northern slope is a rough forest. The site is a delight for botanists: many wild plants, including orchids, grow throughout the site. In early spring the irises turn 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 are yellow or green depending on the weather. A cypress marks the entrance to the site.

You can do everything on site. There is a field of stairs. There is a badminton court (with net) furnished. There is a corner with a bench where you can retire. A hammock is hung in another place where you can doze off. The site is a true paradise for children: what about the tree house in four floors.
There is a swimming pool of 10x5 meters at some distance from the house. Adjacent to the swimming pool a shallow area has been created where you can relax in the water and where small children can play. There are four sun loungers on the pool terrace and there is a hot shower.

The site has a very favorable sun. The house faces southwest on a sunny slope. The sun is not obstructed by trees or hills, making it pleasant around the house even in the high season and in the winter. There are many shaded areas on the site. The outdoor terrace provides protection against the (high) sun in the summer and offers a sheltered place in the (low) sun in the winter. 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 is built in the traditional way and has many authentic details. The whole was completely renovated and newly furnished a few years ago. 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 ample crockery. The format is as follows:
Hall with separate toilet. Living room with conservatory and open kitchen, 65 m2, and subsequently covered outside terrace, 25 m2, with large table and 10 terrace chairs. From there you can walk onto the site. There are four more lazy chairs and a garden table with 6 chairs.
Bedrooms: there are two bedrooms with their own 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 an altitude of approx. 100 meters from the house lies an idyllic and clean guesthouse, hidden in the woods. You will find a bedroom with a double bed, a conservatory room and a simple kitchen. Sanitary (including hot shower) is available nearby in the open air. For the romantics and those seeking tranquility.

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