Holiday Rental House
Spoil your family, friends and book this historic, unique villa (petit chateau) built by Italian gentry 200 years ago for their luxury stay's in Provence. This Italian style four storey grand old lady (restored and modernised without loosing its charm) is set in an enchanting garden with park dimensions, sports a huge swimming pool, a long driveway flanked by Lebanese cedar trees and overlooks medieval mountain villages. The proximity to Nice Airport (45 min), Cannes festivals, Mediterranean beaches and vineyards makes Villa Cambaras the perfect choice for everyone in the extended family and group of friends. We dare say the villa, located in the midst of just about everything Provence and the Riviera has to offer, appeals to all tastes and interests.

This Italian style four storey grand old lady (restored and modernised without loosing its charm) is set in an enchanting garden with park dimensions, sports a huge swimming pool, a long driveway flanked by Lebanese cedar trees and overlooks medieval mountain villages. The proximity to Nice Airport (45 min), Cannes festivals, Mediterranean beaches and vineyards makes Villa Cambaras the perfect choice for everyone in the extended family and group of friends. We dare say the villa, located in the midst of just about everything Provence and the Riviera has to offer, appeals to all tastes and interests. The main building, facing the Chateau de Puy (Tourrettes castle) built by Napoleonic General Alexander Fabre (a gift for helping Peter the Great to build up Russia's infrastructure), is decorated with a mix of beautiful antiques, colonial rattan and modern furniture. The lay-out of this 10 bed villa: Ground floor (basement) - Bedroom next to a fountain court yard with en suite bathroom and a private lounge. First floor - Library/dining room with ceiling frescoes, old school well equipped kitchen with a five burner Godin gas stove, conservatory/drawing room. Second floor - Master bedroom with ceiling frescoes, delightful light from windows in three directions, large romantic en suite bathroom also with frescoes and balcony with uninterrupted view over the valley and the hilltop villages of Fayence and Tourrettes castle. Third floor - 1 bedroom with breathtaking uninterrupted view of the hilltop villages, 1 bedroom w two single beds, bathroom The stone barn/garden studio: Generous light and dimensions with double bed, pentry and bathroom formerly used by a resident artist. The main entry gate to the property is followed by a tree-lined (with nearly three hundred year old Lebanese cedars) narrow driveway which leads up to the main building. The garden, with parklike dimensions (1.5 acres) is spread across four terraces. A Roman staircase leads to a generous pool, large enough for serious exercise swimming. Cambaras has - although in the midst of a lively valley with easy access to shopping and activities like golf, tennis, fishing and a glider academy - a country feel to it. There is a sheep farm right below, a vineyard and horse stable on the other side of the hill. Walking- and cycling distance to the medieval hilltop villages of Fayence - lively with excellent restaurants, bars and festivals - and Tourrettes - more artistic, quaint and peaceful. Conveniently near are also the picturesque villages of Callian, Sellians and Mons. Village life makes itself constantly reminded with the chimes of the church bells ringing in the distance. The villages alternate with offering street markets and summer concerts. During the winter months the Southern alp ski resorts are only an hour away. The size of the property gives enough space for families sharing and makes Cambaras suitable for weddings and anniversaries - of which we have quite a few every season. Villa Cambaras has enchanted guests for two centuries. The same family has owned Villa Cambaras for five years stepped in and were immediately hooked. So are visiting guests. More

We stayed here in August 2018 as a party of 10. The house is very characterful, with a great pool. Some road noise, and parts of the house need renewing, which was a bit of a shame and not expected from the pictures. Highly recommend...More
