Rustic beauty in wonderful location
This property is located in a small, closed domaine next to Ott winery and a 10 min footwalk through the vinyards to Pellegrin Beach. The location is fantastic - close to the beach, a quick car ride to shopping, yet rural and isolated. The small road runs near-by but you rarely hear any cars.
Nature - forest, beach and mountains - surround this 2 building property, and afford it amazing views of the distant islands beyond the golfe de Hyeres. On the sentiere litoral you can hike all the way to Fort Bregancon. Bormes and Le Lavandou are right over the hill, yet far removed.
The rural nature brings some issues, the main one being bugs. There are many bugs everywhere, including mosquitos. There is no a/c except for one bedroom, so your windows and doors will need to be opened to let in the ocean breeze for cooling. Along with it come centipedes, yellowjackets and moths.
The house is basic, with basic bed- and bathrooms. The living room is large with opposing french doors that let you see from the courtyard through the house towards the water. Every breakfast, lunch and dinner was had on the patio. The kitchen is well equipped and practical.
For all its antique feel and interior design, the house could use a bit of maintenance. Cracking and peeling paint here and there, scratching doors and corners that haven't seen a broom in a while. The ground outside is sandy, covered with pine needles, so it's hard to keep a place like this pristine. But a bit of fresh paint and a good clean would go a long way to making this into an even more perfect place.
Seaport of Miramar a few km. Possibility of renting motor boats, sailboards or catamarans.
