Welcome to La Bastide Toscane
After having spent many years living in Fort William, and working in the hotel business in the shadow of Ben Nevis, Margaret and I decided it was time to escape the Scottish rain and travel a little further afield in search of some sun. Margaret who was born in Sligo is half Scottish/half Irish and I am half British/half Canadian but born in Copenhagen, so we are quite a mixture; however, it was in the heart of France’s “La Provence Verte” that we discovered our ideal home, all be it in a somewhat dilapidated state.
We are situated in the centre of the Var, just outside the Medieval village of CORRENS and on the old road to Cotignac. Some of the finest Cotes de Provence wines are produced here and we are fortunate to have such great domaines as Chateau Miraval and Domaine d’Aspras nearby. Furthermore, It is only a leisurely one hour’s drive to many of the Riviera resorts like Saint Tropez and Saint Raphael.
La Toscane is built of old stone and supported by beautiful 200 year old beams. After having spent several years restoring the six bedroom farmhouse, it is as you see it today. We are proud to share it with you now and in visiting this website, we hope it will help you make up your mind as to where to spend numerous days in Provence, France.
Looking forward to welcome you.
