Cotignac is a pretty, unspoiled Provence village set at the foot of ancient limestone cliffs, and designated 'Village de Caractère', and 'Un des plus beaux villages de France'. It was founded before the Romans, and in the 19th century was at the centre of the olive and silkworm industries. It is at the heart of the Côte de Provence vineyards. The village has many beautiful fountains and a weekly Provençal market, plus the benefit of several restaurants and shops. In the summer, a festival of films and concerts are presented in the spectacular outdoor 'Théatre du Rocher'.
To the south, Cotignac is 1 hour from St. Tropez and the Cote d'Azur. To the north at 45 minutes is the breathtaking Gorge de Verdon and beautiful Lac St. Croix, with the lavender fields of Valensole nearby.To the west at 1hour is Aix en Provence, and Avignon at 2 hours. To the east the Italian border is 90 minutes away.

About Frederik & Caroline Franssens
Hello, I'm Frederik. I'm married with Caroline and we have 2 betautiful kids (twins) Eva and Simon. We live in Belgium and I work for Audi. Caroline is a beautician. Our kids still go to school. We always dreamt of buying a house abroad to spent our holidays and spent as much time as possible in our free time.
Frederik & Caroline Franssens purchased this Cottage in 2010
Why Frederik & Caroline Franssens chose Cotignac
We came here on a holiday and we fell immediately in love with the house and its surroundings. We live a hectic life at home and when we go on holidays, we love a quiet place where we can enjoy the silence of nature. We spent 3 years in this house when we were on holidays and the last year, I asked the owners, a lovely English couple who live 200m from the house, if they weren't planning on selling the house and to surely contact us when the time was there. A year later we bought the house !!
What makes this Cottage unique
We love the house because it is a traditional Provence house which is about 250 years old. It has thick walles wich means it stays very cool during the hot season. It is situated at the end of a dead end street so there is no traffic at all. The house lays on a private property of 1.6 hectare and has a very nice private pool.The charming village of Cotignac is only 3 km away so everything is nearby.
