What could be more delightful than a 3-bedroom holiday apartment at an organic hill olive farm in Provence? Le Domaine des Escavalins is a farm and the location for Olives en Provence operations (olive farming, oil milling and product sales).
A lovely 3-bedroom apartment (gîte) on the property is an excellent base for holidays in the Var. Located 4 km up a winding forestry track overlooking the olive groves, the self-catered house is charming with traditional Provencal decor, including exposed beams. Well-appointed and private, the holiday apartment has three bedrooms (for a maximum of six people). Two comfortable double beds and a small room with two single bunk beds are ideal for children.
Since one of the best things about Provence is the ability to enjoy the outdoors, there is a lovely terrace complete with sun loungers, a delightful plunge pool and an electric plancha BBQ (flattop grill).
Look down the Vallée du Gapeau towards the Mediterranean, where some French Riviera beaches are only 25 kilometres from the holiday home. Whether you arrive at the Nice or Marseille international airports, both are 90 minutes from Domaine des Escavalins (Olives en Provence). Yet this organic working farm delivers an absolute escape from the intense pace of daily life.
Located in the Var, the property is four (4) kilometres from the village of Belgentier but completely secluded and unspoiled. Just outside the door are walking trails, including the Grande Randonée 9 (GR9) route and a chance to see a remarkable variety of wild animals, insects, birds, and native Mediterranean flowers.
In the low season, there is a minimum of a three (3) night stay (short stay offers include breakfast).
A seven (7) night minimum (Saturday to Saturday) is required for both mid and high seasons.
Low season 680€/week
High Season 1350€/week
The apartment has a small plunge pool and a private terrace.
Guests are invited to use the small gym’s excellent sports equipment.
There is a washing machine and dryer available for guest usage.
Enjoy the natural walking trails on the property, where you might see some local wildlife, including foxes, wild boar, roe deer, Bonelli eagles, or even buzzards. At night, there are the hoots of owls and maybe even a chance to see the magnificent Grand Duc.
Domaine des Escavalins is 30 kilometres from Hyeres International Airport, 28 km from Toulon TGV railway station, 1hr 30 minutes from Nice Airport and the same distance to the Marseille Airport.
What their guests say:
Escavalins is a truly magical place. As you ascend the track, you get a real sense of disconnecting from the hustle-bustle of everyday life and find yourself becoming part of nature. Once there, you’re greeted by a beautiful place to stay and a selection of local treats that will delight as you start your adventure. From there, the natural world is your oyster. The sights, the sounds, and the air all play together to create something truly bigger than the sum of its parts. It’s a little piece of heaven! ~ January 2023
Joli gîte typique et bien équipé au bout d’une piste rocailleuse qui serpente dans un vaste domaine où sont cultivés les oliviers. Les olives sont pressées sur place pour en faire de l’huile bio. Terrasse et petite piscine privatives taillées dans la roche. Plancha à disposition. Les propriétaires sont discrets mais aux petits soins. Ils connaissent les bonnes adresses. Les chiens bien éduqués sont les bienvenus. Vue magnifique. ~ July 2022
