Please note that we cannot take anymore point swaps at the moment. We already have too many points to spend.
Welcome to Maison de Famille (The Family House) in Callian.
When we found this original 17th century stone villa right on the river near Callian, it had been abandoned for many years and left to decay. It was love at first sight for us, and we spent six years restoring the property to its traditional charm.
As we chipped away the worn-out additions of the years, we discovered the house's authentic personality, such as the original stonework throughout. Finally, the potential we saw has been realized in the fully equipped, family-friendly French country house that it is today.
We have designed and appointed this house for our personal pleasure and comfort. Our family enjoys retreating from the noise and pace of the city to the particular style of casual tranquillity found only in Provence. We are delighted to share this sunny, south facing home with you, and invite you to enjoy all the comforts and pleasures of Provençal life at Maison de Famille de Callian.
