The Location

Set Back from the busy Cote d’Azur, amongst hills planted with olive groves and vineyards, La Mude is situated some 15 miles west of Draguignan, the old capital of the Var, and 30 miles north-west of St Tropez.

Facing south with outstanding views over the surrounding countryside, the house and heated pool stand in 2 acres of terraced grounds, planted with olive and fruit trees.

It is extremely quiet and private, whilst being only five minutes drive from Salernes, which has very good shopping facilities and lively markets on Wednesdays and Sundays.

Local attractions include tennis, which is only 5 minutes by car from the house, horse-riding in Salernes and Sillans-la- Cascade, and golf only 10 minutes by car.

There is plenty of opportunity for both walking and cycling, with forest and cross-country tracks running directly from the villa, with little need to use the roads.

The Ancient railway line passing the house is now Tarmacked and called the European Cycle way miles of almost private cycling, I am told it will eventually join Spain to Italy.  So bring your Bikes and have some fantastic rides.

Other activities include wine tasting in local vineyards, a visit to the monastry at Le Thornet, natural caves in Villecroze, the waterfall in Sillans-la Cascade (10 minutes walk from the house), and numerous picturesque Provencal villages well worth visiting.

The Lac St Croix, 30 minutes to the north, offers a peaceful haven to the coast, where one can picnic, swim, windsurf and sail.

The magnificent Grand Canyon du Verdon , reputed to be the deepest gorge in Europe, leads into the lake and is well worth a visit for impressive scenery.

There is an excellent choice of local restaurants, a list of which is available in the villa, together with telephone numbers.

Nice and Marseille airports are both approximately an 1hr 20min by car.
