A comfortable, well-located, peaceful, and very private villa in the Var
There were just two of us at La Mude for two weeks in May, so we had a lot of space, and we loved it. The location was perfect for exploring this less-visited (but well worth it) part of Provence. We found the villa spacious, comfortable, and well-appointed, set in beautifully landscaped and well-maintained grounds. The kitchen is roomy and well-equipped (we cook quite a bit). The bed (in the master bedroom, at least) is very comfortable, and the showers are fine.
La Mude (both house and setting) is the creation of Edward, the owner and our host, a British gentleman and one of the most interesting and gracious hosts I have encountered in many years of renting vacation accommodations. He is very helpful and engaging if you need something or just want to chat, and he will leave you alone if you don't. His terraced property, with its own brook and fish pond just below the house, is well worth a wander. It is a lovely, isolated place, and the heated pool is the cherry on top. Perfect.
Salernes has several supermarkets (overall, Casino is the best). There is a big outdoor market on Sunday morning, and some shops are open while the market is on, but after things close, it is worth noting that there is a small but good shop adjacent to the restaurant in Pontevès that is open in the afternoon, with a good selection of basics, including organic produce and other foods.
There are many varied drives and things to see and do in all directions. The Var is much less spoiled by tourism than the neighboring Luberon, although attractive places such as Cotignac and Tourtour have been too commercialized for us. We preferred less pretentious villages such as Ampus, Pontevès, Tavernes (despite the busy road that runs through it), and small Fox-Amphoux, as well as the medieval parts of Aups and Villecroze. The Gorges du Verdon is not far off. If you've visited America's Grand Canyon, lower your expectations a bit, and it is spectacular on its own terms.
Enjoy the Var, enjoy La Mude, enjoy Edward. As a package, they will provide a very relaxing, enjoyable holiday.
