The Locality

This spacious South-West facing house is situated in just under one acre of terraced hillside garden, once the ancient olive groves that surrounded the pretty mediaeval hilltop village of Callian, just ten minutes walk from the house. The views look south some 25km to the Massif de l’Esterel and Massif des Maures, the mountain ranges bordering the Mediterranean towns and beaches of St Raphael, Fréjus, St Maxime and St Tropez. Beaches can be reached in 30 - 45 minutes.


Village Square Callian

Callian itself is small and charming but nevertheless boasts all the basic necessities: two restaurants, cafe's, butcher, baker, grocer (also sells local wines), news-agent, chemist, Casino minimarket and a historic church.
 
Down in the plain below the village there are many restaurants and  all the usual shops including two well-stocked super-markets.

 

Nearby there is swimming, windsurfing and canoeing on the extensive Lac de St Cassien, and gliding at Fayence. The mountainous terrain to the north provides plenty of opportunity for walkers, including the Grand Canyon du Verdon. Locally there is tennis and horse riding. For golfers there are six courses within 30km and just across the valley, only 5km away, two world class 18 hole golf courses at “Terre Blanche” opened recently.
