MaisonBurns in Var, a cottage in Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur: MaisonBurns exterior

Spacious, tastefully furnished 3 bedroomed detached house

Extremely spacious, detached family house, comfortably furnished to a high standard, with enclosed child-safe garden and set in a beautiful hilltop village. We are a short drive to the stunning Gorges du Verdon (France's Grand Canyon) and Lac Ste Croix with its many beaches and water sport activities. The house has a large terrace, great for al fresco eating and relaxing in the dappled shade. There are lots of sunny spots in the garden, with sun loungers available. The ground floor living space includes large (60+ sq m) living/dining area with log fire for winter visitors.There are also radiators throughout the house. The property includes a fully equipped kitchen so you can dine in and a BBQ is available for your enjoyment. We take great pride in our house, love every moment we spend there and are sure you will as well, because it is our home and not just a holiday let. There are plenty of books, DVDs, music and free WiFi for you, should you need to stay connected.

Just a short walk away is Le Bellevue restaurant and bar run by Melanie and Thierry, a delightful couple offering simple, inexpensive dishes - and terrific value. It has become very popular so you will need to book. You can also order bread/croissants etc the night before to collect the following morning. A fine hotel serving gourmet food is also in walking distance.

All in all, MaisonBurns is a perfect base for exploring the Parc Naturel Regional du Verdon and its spectacular Gorges - an absolute must to visit, together with the Lac - and an ideal location for those wanting to experience the food, wine, charm and bustle of Provençal village life.

The village of Aups (6km) has a thriving market on Wednesdays and Saturdays (and a truffle market in winter), numerous bars, restaurants, banks, shops and a supermarket. Regusse and Salernes both have thriving Sunday markets.

Other delightful small towns and villages a short drive away include Tourtour – the 'village in the sky' - and Aiguines (pottery) close to the northern access to the Gorge. Ste Croix is a lovely village on the other side of the lake near the ‘Barrage’ leading towards Quinson - more stunning canyon scenery. From here the Verdon river flows to Esparron where you can take an hour long excursion by boat (in season) around that lake – glorious!. Close to Ste Croix extensive lavender fields stretch from Valensole to Moustier Ste Marie.

Don't miss Cotignac, Sillans la Cascade (waterfalls), Salernes (cycle hire), Villecroze (grottoes) and Baudinard (wonderful sunsets). To find out more about the region visit

On arrival, our local agent will arrange to meet you, show you round the house and hand over the keys on payment of a security deposit, refundable after satisfactory inspection on your departure. She will ensure the house is clean for your arrival and visitors will be expected to leave it tidy and clear of rubbish, ready for her to clean on your departure. Thank you.
