About the Holiday Home

The entrance to the house
The entrance to the house

La Bastide du Rocher was built from local stone in the traditional Provençal style as a village home at the beginning of the last century. The three-storey house was recently restored and extended, and accommodates six guests in three bedrooms, in a spacious and traditional atmosphere.

The house stands in its own grounds, surrounded by a garden spread over four terraces: there's plenty of lawn space, rose bushes, an olive grove, a dining terrace, and, of course, the 10x4 metre swimming pool. The terraces give spectacular views over the village of Cotignac and the surrounding countryside, towards the Massif des Maures in the distance.

The inside of the La Bastide du Rocher is comfortably furnished and traditionally decorated, with many original features, such as exposed wooden beams in the ceilings. The fitted kitchen is fully equipped, and includes a dishwasher.

The dining room has a large table for eight in front of a traditional wood-burning stove. The living room is a comfortable place to relax, with sofas, a fireplace, a satellite TV, and a music centre, with windows that overlook the village and the countryside beyond.

About the Area

The view from La Bastide du Rocher over the rooftops of Cotignac

It's just a five minute walk into the village of Cotignac, which has a good range of shops and services. There are several restaurants and bars, grocery shops, a bank, tennis courts, and a bouledrome.

Cotignac has an excellent market every Tuesday, with plenty of the wonderful local produce on sale. The countryside is magnificent, with mile upon mile of fire tracks through the hills which are ideal for walking and mountain biking.

There are medieval villages to explore, and wine domaines which welcome visitors to taste their product. In the summer months there are numerous markets selling antiques, crafts, and local produce in the village, as well as musicians in the evenings.

A path leads up the face of the cliff behind the village, where one can see rooms built into the rock, which were the original homes of the locals many centuries ago.

About the Region

Gorge du Verdon
Gorge du Verdon

It's an easy drive to the spectacular scenery of the Gorge du Verdon, a great canyon cut by the Verdon river; and to Lac St Croix, where there are lots of water sports available. An hour's drive will take you to the Mediterranean coast, the glamourous cities of Nice and St Tropez, Marseille, famous for its 18th century port area and its excellent seafood restaurants, and to the fascinating historical city of Aix-en-Provence, founded by the Romans as a spa town and an important cultural and political centre during the middle ages.

The surrounding countryside has many things to discover, including medieval villages, which were often built on remote hillsides for security, and a great many vineyards, which welcome visitors for wine-tasting sessions. The hills have excellent tracks for mountain biking or hiking. Mountain bikes can be hired locally, and horse riding and kayaking are also available.
