The times

Two Pure France holiday rental homes have been selected in The Times' 25 Of The Best Villas In Provence for 2022. Here are the two selected among the elite in the beautiful region of Provence.

Bastide de Cavaroux, Fayence

The alpine foothills around Fayence are the last best bit of Provence: plunging gorges, vineyards, perched villages that still work for a living. Among all this loveliness is this six-bedroom, five-bathroom stay for two, even three families. Split between a large house and a cottage, it’s a beauty: arty, bright, with a large open-plan kitchen in which to gather, plus the usual diversions to occupy children while you slug rosé: a pool, table tennis, babyfoot, boules and a garden gypsy caravan.

Maison Lescure, Brignoles

Come for genuine forest bathing in the Var, one of the most wooded departments in France. Trees crowd the 8 metre pool and villa of this three-bedroom hideaway on an organic wine estate that’s managed for nature; your stay includes a free tasting plus options to e-bike, ride horses and hike with a guide. If outside is gloriously wild, with nothing louder than cicadas, within is a Thoreau-like escape for design obsessives, all pared-back open-plan modernism.
