Aberlady House

Gite in Provence-Alpes-Cote d'Azur
0/5 ( 0 Reviews)


This delightful 17th century village house is simply decorated and furnished with an airy and open feel. The floors in the living rooms and the stairs have been lovingly restored using tiles matching to the originals, and the beams have been exposed in the main bedroom and the dining area. Original fireplaces and other fittings and details also remain. The kitchen and dining area are on street level, and a french window opens out onto the lower terrace overlooking the river and the forested hill on the other side. Here there are chairs and a table for outside dining, and also a barbeque for intrepid chefs. The living room and utility, and a WC, are on the first floor and the bedrooms and bathroom (also with WC) are on the second and third floors. Also on the third (top) floor there is a second, cooler terrace under the eaves.
Because the rooms are large and run right through from front to back of the property, the light floods in from both sides creating a feeling of space and fresh air. The cobbled street is a cul-de-sac for vehicles and so very quiet. At the back the soothing sound of the running water from the river adds to the relaxed atmosphere.
An ideal location from which to explore the beautiful area of Provence.

1 hr 20 mins drive from either Marseilles or Nice airport.
From Marseille Airport or from the West:
a) Leave the airport heading South on the D20 and when you hit the D9 head East on it towards Aix en Provence. A couple of km before Aix change to the A51 and very soon after take the A8 toll road East towards Nice.
b) After about 55 km leave the A8 at Exit 35 (Brignoles), at first heading towards the city, but taking a Left turn at the first roundabout onto the D97 and another Left at the next roundabout onto the D554. Pass under the motorway and through the village of Le Val, turning Right to Carces on the D562. Not long after Carces turn Left on the D31 to Entrecasteaux.
c) When entering Entrecasteaux from the south you will have to pass through the one-way traffic lights. You need to stop at the side of the road just after where the traffic lights are at the other end where the road turns left (and where the road is a little wider), and drop off passengers, luggage, shopping etc. More or less opposite the traffic lights there are steps down on the right to Rue Sous Barry (there is a street name on the wall). No. 6 is about 5 metres along on the right after the steps, round the corner. Then the car should carry on and pretty soon you should see the big car park down on the right where you can leave the car.
From Nice Airport or from the East:
a) Leave the airport following signs to the A8. Take the A8 West towards Marseille.
b) After about 85 km leave the A8 at the junction with the D1555 signed to Draguignan. After about half a kilometer at the first roundabout carry straight on towards Draguignan. After another half a kilometer take the exit on the right, and at the roundabout take the first exit onto the DN7 towards Aix and Les Arcs. After 6 km take the D10 on the right, through the village of Les Arcs and through a roundabout and on toward Taradeau. Stay on the D10 through Taradeau all the way to Lorgues, about 12 km. At the roundabout take the 3rd exit to the D562 towards Carcès, and go straight through two smaller roundabouts. At the next roundabout (big) take the 4th exit to the D562 towards Carcès and go about 12 km. Turn Right on the D31 towards Entrecasteaux.
c) Then follow c) above.
From the North:
a) We suggest that, from the north, as you enter the old part of the village, take note of the car park on the left but go a bit further and round the corner to the right. That is where the traffic light section begins. We advise you not to drop passengers going this way through, but to carry on through the traffic lights and turn round in the road entrance just on the right of the big cemetery gates which are straight ahead as you leave the village.
b) Then return and follow instructions as if coming from the south as c) above.


Entrecasteaux is a beautiful old Provencal village, situated on the River Bresque. The whole of the old village is classified as an historic monument, and the houses and other buildings are very picturesque. The chateau stands on the site of an 11th century fort and was built in the 16th century, then modified in the 17th and 18th centuries.
During the summer there are lots of events taking place in Entrecasteaux itself, but there are also plenty of others in Cotignac, Carcès, Salernes and Lorgues.
Famously, there is also a cricket club, which is very active and welcomes visiting teams to play against.
There are several good restaurants and bars in the village, and also a bakery, a grocery and a news agent.
This part of the country is famous for its beautiful ceramics, and there is the Terra Rossa museum at Salernes, and many artisan tile shops in the villages. The forests used to be felled to fire the clay, but electric ovens are now used.
The forests are now wonderful to walk in, and smell gorgeous as they contain wild herbs as well as wild boar (very shy and only aggressive if disturbed with young).
