Chateau de Mappe, Apt 5 in Var, a cottage in Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur: Garden and Grounds

Apartment in Provencal 12th century Chateau with pool and tennis. Sleeps 4

"What an amazing Chateau!"

"Fabulous for a winter break too - roaring log fire and great central heating!"

This beautifully-designed apartment is set in extensive landscaped gardens and parkland, with cherry trees, flowering shrubs, a large swimming pool, tennis court, boule pitch and lots of space for other outdoor activities.

A twelfth century chateau & its outbuildings have been converted into 11 houses and apartments. Ours has two bedrooms (one double, one twin, both ensuite), a double reception room, laundry room and private terrace with large dining table and BBQ.

Blissfully cool in the heat of summer, it has full heating and an open wood fire for cooler months and is truly a delight in autumn months.

Tranquillity and beauty are guaranteed: the chateau looks out onto vineyards and rolling hills.

Lorgues with its famous market is 4km away. Tourtour 15km. Riding, canoeing and golf are all nearby. And for walkers or cyclists, the magnificent Gorges de Verdon beckons. Beaches 50 mins.

Additional Information
The was beautifully converted into 11 houses and apartments twenty years ago: elegant staircases and arches abound with much of the original stonework still in place.The grounds are stunning, with expansive lawns, fruit trees, flowering shrubs and hidden corners.

The 15 metre swimming pool is very mild salt water. With views of vineyards and the hills, its a beautiful suntrap (with plentiful sunloungers).

The tennis court is discreetly hidden, with an all weather surface used throughout the year by keen players.

We've two sets of Boules in the apartment, and the boule court is under a large spreading tree, so fine for midday games in the shade or floodlit ones after supper.

With amazingly thick old walls, this apartment is always cool in the heat of summer – and warm in the autumn/winter. White and refreshing, with splashes of Provencal colours and gorgeous tiled bathrooms.
