Description of Property:   This charming Provencal house is located a short walk from Cotignac. The house is very spacious with a dining room that seats six, a large living room with a grand fireplace and through French doors to a very large conservatory with a French billiards table. Then there are two double bedrooms and one twin bedroom as well as two bathrooms.

Hot water and central heating are powered by a large oil-fired boiler. Internet TV and a fast internet connection are included.

Background: The Canadian author Timothy Findley lived here for many years and developed the house and the gardens. His books included "The Piano Man's Daughter", "Not Wanted on the Voyage" and the short stories in "Dinner Along the Amazon".

Outside Amenities:  From the private terraces and the main garden at the front of the house, there are panoramic views across the landscape of Provence, looking south and south-east. At night the star canopy is amazing. Thre is a new iron pergola and shade awning on this main terrace well equipped with three double out door sofas. This main terrace is ideal for dining outdoors! On a separate terrace below the main terrace there is a swimming pool - available June to September. We love the gardens, where you will find three attractive terraced areas with seating, olive trees and numerous plants and shrubs. There is a small fish pond on the second terrace with a shaded pergola. The fourth terrace (below the swimming pool terrace) has ancient olive trees and wild flowers and grasses. Above the house there are rising terraces to two driveways, a car port and parking area suitable for up to four cars. Also located here is the former studio of the writer Timothy Findlay (not available to rent).

Surrounding Area:  Cotignac is one of the prettiest small towns in Provence. Built into and at the foot of the famous limestone rock-face whose caves in medieval times were a refuge and at other times a store, the old village streets wind down past the Mairie to "the high street" - a wide avenue flanked by plane trees. Here a busy and picturesque market is held every Tuesday. From here you may visit some of the 'must sees' in the area such as Aix-en-Provence which is a 40 minute drive , St Tropez - about an hour through spectacular scenery, Marseilles - the oldest city in France and full of interesting architecture and a 40 minute drive will take you to Lac St Croix with ample beach and lake side walks and then on to the Verdon Gorge which is Europe's deepest canyon with beautiful lake and beach.
For walkers there are numerous randonnees in the area. And you don't need your car to try the spectacular walk, which commences just behind the house, and takes you on thyme and flower adorned trails high up into the hills, from where the views will take your breath away.
