Cogolin private holiday villa with pool - This traditional Mas is located in peaceful countryside in the heart of a nature reserve near the charming village of La Mole. Built over one hundred years ago, this beautiful property sits on a gentle grassy slope at the edge of a protected forest, surrounded by vineyards and the luxuriant countryside of the Massif des Maures, yet is only 6 miles from the coast – it really is a rarity to find such a combination!
Tasteful French décor and traditional features combine with modern amenities to create a luxurious holiday home. What better way to enjoy this tranquil setting than to dine al fresco on the terrace under the dappled shade of two beautiful Plane trees. A client in 2017 stated that the quirky
“frenchness” only adds to the charm" which is the most apt description for this lovely property.
The village of La Mole has a great local restaurant and an award-winning bakery, and Cogolin is within 5 miles for twice weekly markets. But the beauty of this location must be its proximity to St Tropez and the wonderful, sandy beaches along this stretch of coastline with their vibrant beachside cafes. Golf, tennis, horse riding and go-karting are just some of the activities you might enjoy, along with a diversity of entertainment ranging from children's fun fairs to polo matches.
It is not often one finds a Provencal-style Mas of such standing so close to St Tropez and the coast, and this one is magnificent; superbly decorated, in an excellent private location but still close enough to the razzamatazz of St Tropez and the beaches if you wish to go. La Mole has a prestigious restaurant called L'Auberge de la Mole which has been in the same family for 50 years - it is important to book in advance so as not to be disappointed and remember to take "real" money as they don't take credit cards! La Mole has even got its own little airport with scheduled flights with Darwin airlines from Geneva during the season - or you can of course take your own plane should you have one.

the nicest house we've ever rented.
The property itself was absolutely stunning - the nicest house we've ever rented. This house is exceptionally beautiful and completely exceeded our expectations. It's big and beautiful and is in an idyllic location. It has the feel of a very special family home. There were 10 of us there and we all adored it.
