The house

The house is situated on the edge of Brignoles, on a hill hidden among the trees.
It is located on a property of about 0.5 ha and it is very private with beautiful views over a small valley, woods and mountains in the distance. No neighbours that might bother you!
The property is wooded and sloping, with on the lowest point the swimming pool.
You reach the house via a private drive of about 100 metres, there is a carport at the entrance.
The house is of the type 'neo-provencal' (25 years old) and in the lower house is a garage and a basement. Above is the living and sleeping area with a living room with sitting area, fireplace and dining area, followed by a (closed) kitchen. The kitchen is fully equipped with a stove, oven, refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher, coffee machine (Nespresso), etc. From the living room there are French doors leading to a covered terrace. There is a stereo with CD player.

From the lounge there is an open connection to the sleeping area, where there are three double bedrooms, a bathroom and a WC. Two of the three bedrooms have doors opening onto the terrace that runs along the house.
Above the seating area in the living room is a mezzanine, which can also be used as additional sleeping space (with TV ). From there a door gives access to a large fourth double bedroom with separate bathroom with shower and WC. This room has French doors to a separate sun terrace with stunning views over the valley.

In the living area there is an internal staircase that brings you to the basement and garage. Here is a third shower room, washing machine, iron etc. In a separate room is the heating system; in the garage table tennis and a croquet game.
Around the house are several terraces with ample opportunities for sunbathing or sitting in the shade. The house is surrounded by a large garden with lots of plants and flowers and a partially wooded area.
The swimming pool (10x5 meters) is located at the lowest part of the garden and is surrounded by tiles and a lawn for sunbathing (depths ranging from 80cm to 2.5m). The pool is open for use from early May to early October.
The house is equipped with plenty of garden furniture (incl. hammock) and there is a bbq.

Brignoles is originally a medieval town, which has become the main centre of the so-called green Var. It also has all amenities including a hospital.
The town has a still almost untouched medieval centre on a hill around an old church with narrow streets, gates and staircases, surrounded by lively shopping streets, squares and cafés, etc. In addition, there are large supermarkets such as LeClerc, Casino and Intermarché (within walking distance).
The major cities in the south are also all within easy reach. Aix en Provence is half an hour away, a very attractive city with many terraces. In less than an hour you are in Nice, Cannes, Marseille, Toulon or at the sea side with towns like St. Maxime, St. Raphael, St. Tropez, Port Grimaud, Le Lavandou, etc. The closest coastal town (and casino) is Hyeres at about 30 minutes.

Restaurants, food & wine

You will probably know that this part of the Provence is famous for its excellent rose wines. The wine houses in and around Brignoles are happy to welcome you almost daily to taste and buy wines. There are several wine domaines near the house such as La Lieue, Margillière and Fontlade, all on the way to the golf course of Barbarous.

Every Saturday morning there is a large, lively market in the centre of Brignoles, where local products are offered , such as cheeses, olives, honey, vegetables, fruit etc. and also clothes, bags and jewelery.
When looking for a restaurant, there is plenty of choice in the Brignoles region. The offer ranges from very good Provencal to French haute cuisine. In the house there is a folder in which several specially recommended restaurants are listed.


Many activities are orgnanised in Brignoles during the summer months July / August ranging from Medieval festivals to open-air concerts, something for everyone.
Just outside Brignoles is a professional kart track.
Around Brignoles there is also lots to see and experience . Well known is for example the Thoronet Abbey, a beautiful medieval convent and monastery church, where classical concerts are organised regularly.

Golf Opportunities
Only five (!!) minutes driving from the house is the famous Golf de Barbaroux, a well-equipped, very challenging 18 hole course. It is never really busy, not in the summer season nor the rest of the year (do book to be sure).The area has many other fine golf courses ( such as St. Endreol, Roquebrune, St. Maxime Valescure, Nans les Pins, Valcros, Mandelieu, Marseilles, etc.).

Wij verbleven met 2 gezinnen in dit prachtige huis. Wat je ziet op de foto's is ook echt wat je ziet als je aankomt rijden op de prachtige oprijlaan, wel wat hobbelend : )
Het uitzicht is prachtig en de rust is overweldigend, heerlijk genoten met de kinderen. Deze plek is een mooie uitvalbasis naar de Verdon of naar het strand, je zit heel centraal en voor iedereen wat wils. De lokale markt op zaterdag is leuk en natuurlijk konden we de kartbaan niet vergeten die 5 minuten rijden was. Zeker een aanrader!
Top vakantie

Visited in June 2014

We hebben een heerlijke tijd gehad in Les Breguieres. De ligging van het huis is fantastisch en de prachtige tuin is volledig privé. Het huis is van alle gemakken voorzien. De ene dag blijf je lekker bij het zwembad en de andere dag ga je er lekker op uit. Het prachtige Aix-en-Provence ligt op slechts 40 minuutjes rijden (veel leuker dan Nice), evenals het strand. Tip: ga op dinsdagochtend naar de markt van Cotignac.

Beste Mevr Polkamp
Wat een mooi en gezellig huis.Van alle gemakken voorzien .Met een prachtige tuin gezellig taras en mooi zwembad.
Het heeft meer dan verwacht aan onze verwachting voldaan.
Wij hebben samen met onze kinderen en kleinkinderen een onvergetelijke vakantie gehad.
Een aanrader voor iedereen die van rust sfeer en de natuur houd.
En om iets te zien hoef je geen uren te rijden.

Wij hebben echt genoten van onze vakantie in villa "Les Breguieres". Het huis is zeer ruim en biedt alle comfort dat je nodig hebt. Wegens de warme temperaturen was het zwembad gewoon onmisbaar. Het was dan ook zalig om na een frisse duik te bekomen van onze uitstappen. Ook de tuin is prachtig. In de omgeving is er veel te zien en te beleven zodat onze vakantie te kort was. Redenen genoeg om nog eens naar ginder te trekken!

Visited in September 2010

Les Breguieres is een heerlijke villa, van alle gemakken voorzien en met een prachtig aangelegde tuin! Hier vind je absolute rust. Je hoort geen verkeer maar je bent toch in 5 minuten bij de bakker en supermarkt. We zijn 2 weken geweest en je verveelt je geen minuut, want mocht je uitgekeken zijn bij het zwembad (wij overigens niet...!) kun je leuke uitstapjes maken naar o.a. Hyeres of andere kustplaatsen. Ook genoeg gezellige dorpjes in de nabije omgeving maar wij hadden genoeg aan het grote zwembad met onze 2 dochters van 0 en 2 jaar. Het enige wat de oudste riep was: Waar is de schommel? Misschien een idee? Er is immers plek genoeg! Met recht een oase van rust. Wij gaan zeker nog een keer terug naar Casa Polkamp!
