Set in the pine and oak forest overlooking the Lac de Carces in the Var region of Provence, 'La Régalade' is a lovely, well-maintained villa.
Just 15 minutes from Brignoles (D24) and 10 minutes from Carces and Cabasse (D13), this lovely three-bedroom villa lies in the secluded Village du Lac, overlooking the Lac de Carces (fishing only). Surrounded by oak and pine forests the area may seem off the beaten track, but within 15 minutes you can find yourself on the motorway to Aix-en-Provence to the West, Cannes and Nice to the East, and Toulon and Hyeres to the South.
The sandy beaches at Fréjus, Hyeres and St. Tropez beckon in a mere 45 minutes or so. In 20 minutes you can be scaling the marked climbs in the Vallon Sourn and a further 20 minutes bring you to the Gorges du Verdon, France’s Grand Canyon.
There are the wall-to-wall vineyards and olive groves with the wonderful fresh wines of the region to taste at the village 'co-operatives' as well as the more up-market 'domains'. Every day is market day in one of the surrounding villages of Carces, Le Luc, Brignoles, Cotignac, Lorgues and Salernes, where a myriad of fresh cheeses, sausages and salamis, fruit and vegetables, ready made dishes and local arts and crafts are temptingly displayed. Not to be missed are the lovely unspoiled villages of Entrecastaux with its quaint medieval streets and Tourtour,"the village in the sky"!
Culture vultures will not come amiss either with historic Abbaye du Thoronet holding concerts throughout the summer as well as musical events at the chateau in Entrecastaux, jazz at the Chateau de Berne and opera and classical music at the Opera houses in Toulon and Aix-en-Provence. Village festivals abound throughout the summer season.
The property is a great letting potential, in 2013 - 22 weeks booked.
