The Var’s selection of high-end rural homes is exceptional, with bucolic villas that are just as charming inside as their landscaped exteriors suggest. If you’re searching for luxury property in the Var, then you need to consider these five properties before you look any further.
1. Picture-Perfect Villa in Tourette’s
Located in Terre Blanche, this picture-perfect villa has an authentic Provencal style, tons of sunlight, and rooms with their own terraces. Each of the eight country-chic bedrooms has an en-suite bathroom; the double reception room has a beautiful stone fireplace; and the kitchen has an enormous island for prepping food and serving guests. The property also includes a wine cellar, media room and double garage. Outside, there’s a heated swimming pool and a covered pool area; a Mediterranean garden; and a private tennis court. You’ll also enjoy exclusive benefits, like access to two 18-hole golf courses.
2. Must See Chateau in the Heart of Provence
This chateau sits on a preserved site of 40 hectares in the heart of Provence. Though the home itself has regal sitting and dining rooms, plus a total of 15 bedrooms and bathrooms, its exterior is the true draw. The landscaped garden has a private swimming pool and the al fresco dining area is reminiscent of French cafés. Flora includes pine trees, truffle oaks and an olive grove producing 600 litres of oil each season. Enjoy countryside views from the relaxing pond, waterfall or fountain, then play a game of tennis or relax in the Jacuzzi. The estate also has a guest house, chapel and stables.
