in a quiet district near to Toulon and the beaches
This property, some 15 minutes to the east of Toulon town centre and its TGV train station, stands in a quiet district of a small town, which still has all of its it Provencal charm of yesteryear. The centre of the village can be reached in 15 minutes on foot and the beaches are 3 km away. For travellers, Marseille international airport is a 1¼-hour drive away, whilst that of Toulon-Hyères is about 30 minutes away.
This house is built in a T-shape over two levels, both of which feature a vast outdoor terrace courtesy of the lie of the land.
This house, constructed in 1860 with 50 cm thick walls, has come down unchanged through the ages until its complete renovation in a contemporary style ten or so years ago, when the entire building was checked out and reinforced where necessary. It features numerous doors and windows, all in keeping with the initial style of the construction and letting in copious amounts of light. It is currently used not only as a house, but also as a spa centre in a section of the upstairs. It could, if so required, be transformed back into its original vocation, that of a vast, luxurious home spanning more than 380 m².
The main entrance is on the south side via the vast shady terrace and a pergola. A living room, brightly illuminated via five openings and laid out in a modern, plain style, integrates a lounge, a dining room and a partially open-plan kitchen, the floor alternately laid with wide tiles and vitrified wooden flooring. The mantel of the fireplace, in good working order like the three others in the house, combines inlaid marquetry and ceramic tiles. A laundry room follows on from the kitchen. A room, in use as a study and a workshop, adjoins the west wing of the house which includes an exercise room, with parquet flooring and featuring a Jacuzzi. It is followed by a 4/5-person hammam. And lastly, the projection on the south side of this level is laid out with a large, main bedroom, with windows on two sides and adjoining shower and dressing rooms. Small stained-glass windows adorning the upper section of the French window and the period fireplace act as reminders of the great age of this house.
A stairway, with terracotta tiles and wooden nosing on the steps, is housed very near to the entrance door. A second main bedroom, with a balcony and a fireplace, is directly above the first. It also includes a private bathroom, with a toilet. A passageway, currently closed off by a thin panel, gives access to the rest of the floor used as a spa centre. This section has a second south-facing lounge, with a fireplace, a fitted kitchen, two consulting rooms which could easily be transformed back into bedrooms, a bedroom with a dressing room, a bathroom, with a toilet, a shower room and a separate toilet. The lounge and two of the bedrooms have direct access out on to the terrace on the north side, making it possible for them to be used for specific purposes as required. And lastly, the same terrace provides access to an independent studio flat, with a mezzanine bed and all necessary facilities (a small kitchen area, a shower room and a toilet).
Reasonable in size, the garden can be reached via two entrances from two different streets, coherently linked to the current mixed use of the house. Whilst the south side dominates the surroundings with its stone balustrade, the north side is more private and includes numerous species of plants as well as a natural screen for the 10x5 m swimming pool. Two large shady terraces, one on either side, are ideal for relaxing or taking meals outside.
Although the district has gradually been developed, this house still features the charm it had some sixty years ago when it majestically took pride of place alone amidst the neighbouring vineyards and fields, proudly bearing the name “Château de l'Oasis”. Completely restored using first-class materials, it exudes a feeling of serenity, both inside and outside on the two terraces, nestling in lush vegetation with numerous species. This delightful property is away from everyday hustle and bustle but is, nevertheless, near to the sea and the biggest town in the Var department.
