Interaction with guests



Other things to note

Animals are welcome but bear in mind that although there is no through road on or near the property the land is not completly fenced in so if you have a pet that wanders it would not suit.
I've lived here for many years and know the area very well. I of course speak French which could always be useful to you, if necessary. I have a seperate studio flat which is sometimes occupied in the summer months.

We just spent 10 amazing days and nights here! Philippa greeted us very warmly and showed us where everything was in the house, she was very thorough and left written information about the house and local markets and events. She was also extremely prompt to respond if we had a question for her. The house and pool were very clean which is important to us. My husband is a Chef and we love to cook in rather than eat out, the kitchen was more than amptly stocked with cookery and pretty Provencal dishes and the local markets are only a few minutes away. The entire property was so peaceful and serene. If you are looking for a cozy gem of a getaway yet still close to markets and major routes to explore Provence this is the place!

Fantastic villa, beautiful surroundings and very helpful and knowledgeable host. We stayed here as a family of 5 and loved the whole experience. The villa sits on top of a hill just outside the town of Draguignan and is perfectly situated for the convenience of local shops and the tranquility. The villa had a fantastic outdoor pool that we all put to good use and also has plenty of sunbeds/hammock for lazy days in the sunshine. Phillipa was also a great host who stocked the fridge with some essentials before we arrived and provided some great advice on local tourist spots and travelling to St Tropez by ferry to avoid the traffic etc. We would wholeheartedly recommend this beautiful villa for a family and hope to return one day (if it is still available!)

We had a wonderful week in Philippa's house with our two teen kids. Philippa was very welcoming and recommended a bunch of great places to see that we all enjoyed. Both the house and garden are really beautiful and you can always find a place to be whether you prefer the sun or the shadow. The pool is lovely - big enough for both swimming and playing. It was very difficault to get the kids out ;-) There are lots of places nearby for shopping, dining and so on, an Draguignan is a beautiful little town - and easy to find a parking spot! We are definitely recommending this place and are planning to return someday in the future.

Philippa was a super nice host, she arranged everything for us for the arrival and the fridge was full of little surprises (incl. local wine). The villa and the setting was absolutely stunning, it's even much better that how the photos look. Super quiet athmosphere for relaxation and trips to the neighbourhood. Would definitely recommend this villa for anyone coming to Provence.

What a magical spot! The house is surrounded by woodland in the hills above draguinan. Quiet, secluded, and calm but only a short drive from shops. A fabulous base for exploring provence. The house is comfortable and has everything one could possibly need. The pool is amazing as is the large garden. Philippa is a wonderful host and gave us loads of info on things to see and do in the area. We only wish we could have stayed longer!

I'm a semi-retired English teacher living in the hills above Draguignan in the South of France.I only teach adults these days which I really enjoy.

I'm Australian but have lived in France for many years now. I have two sons who also live in the south these days allthough they both travel a lot. I also love to travel of course. My favourite destinations are Australia naturally but also south east Asia. My last trip was to Srilanka which I absolutely adored.

I live alone with my many animals. I have a wonderful dog who I could not live without.

I love reading, going for walks and hikes in the hills. I also go running with my dogs and her friends (other dogs) in the surounding woods. I love the sea and swimming of course.

My life moto would be to enjoy each and every moment while we can.

As a guest I would be more than careful and respect your things. I know whart it is like when I rent my house out.

There are many other things but that will do for now

My family and friends come to visit me very often and I also go to them. In summer I often rent my house as well and will certainly use this site next time.
