Not every lake dreams to be an ocean, and the wonderful Lake Cassien should certainly not. There's so much to do, it's of course the perfect spot for a luxury family villa. With so many activities on offer and iconic places to visit nearby, this is one popular property.
Furnished in traditional country style with warm terracotta walls, characterful wooden furnishings and patio doors to invite the outside in, it really is an enticing property. The terrace presents a super area for al fresco meals, overlooking the pool, whilst enjoying splendid views over the photogenic forested hills to the lake.
The wild and natural Lac de St Cassien is bursting with activities for all the family. There's fishing, boating, rowing and pedalos for hire. Prefer dry land? Hiking through the surrrounding hills is one of life's simple pleasures, then stopping at one of the many restaurants for a spot of lovely French food is a must. The fun doesn't stop here though. The delightful hilltop villages of Montauroux and Fayence are nearby, Grasse just 12 miles away and the coast at Mandelieu just 20 minutes. Le Repos du Lac is also situated on the borders of the Alpes Maritimes and the Var, so access into the unspoilt hills of the Var region and further into Provence is also available. Exploring this lovely region is a real treat.
I like this villa for its peaceful setting overlooking the St Cassien Lake, and for the fact that it is not far from the village of Montauroux, where the market is held on Tuesdays, in the shade of century-old plane trees. You can visit the local glass-blowing factory, and then drive on a little further to visit the neighbouring towns of Callian, Seillans and Fayence, so typically and strategically planted on the hilltops. St Cassien Lake is a very pleasant change from the seaside. Try out pedal boats, rowing boats or kayaks; on a lake it’s so much easier than in the sea, believe me!

I would thoroughly recommend quality villas
I would like to say what exceptional customer service we received From start to finish, I would thoroughly recommend quality villas to anyone looking for a fantastic holiday.
I would like to mention Philip who helped us from your office, he was brilliant. Muriel was absolutely brilliant too and so very very helpful with questions whilst we were there. The caretaker was also extremely helpful.
The villa was just as we expected, the photos on your website were true to how we found the villa.
We had a great holiday and will be using quality villas again. The details in the folder along with the map was a great touch and very useful.
Thank you very much.
A good stay
We had a wonderful holiday at Le Repos du Lac; the view from the villa was spectacular and the property itself lovely - full of character and beautifully furnished.
Everything went smoothly and a call to the local agent on the first Saturday, to ask about supermarkets in the area, led to an earlier hand-over of the villa which pleased everyone, including the lady who handed over the key.
