LE CASTELLET - Apartment FANNY, with a surface of 90 sqm, is located at the back of the Mas du Galantin and occupies a portion built between the 17th and the 18th century. It previously gave shelter to the vineyard workers during the season. This is reflected in the pleasant distribution of the rooms, starting with the fully renovated living/dining room. The wooden structure of the roof has been kept visible just like the stone build wall.
The renovated well-equipped kitchen has a very nice view on the vineyards. In the sleeping rooms (one with a double bed and an adjacent bathroom with WC, one with two bunk beds), the simplicity of the ancient times goes well together with the vividly colored fabrics.
One of the sleeping rooms has direct access to the private 25 sqm patio-terrace where the plancha-fans will be delighted by the perfectly working installations. The large table invites the inhabitants of Fanny to gather at the terrace, whenever there is an opportunity or in the adjacent piece of garden furnished with a comfortable lounge!
Apartment Fanny as the other three units has full access to the pool, the parking and the garden.
MAS DU GALANTIN - A 16th century Vineyard Farm (Mas Provençal), not far from the superb medieval village of Le Castellet, at 10 minutes driving distance from Bandol and the beaches:
charm and authenticity in the homeland of novel writer and film maker Marcel Pagnol. We offer you to share the unique atmosphere left by our ancestors in 3 charming Provence style apartments and a historical cottage for 2-8 persons. All 4 carry names of characters from Pagnol’s “Trilogie Marseillaise” and each of them has its own personality.
They all have private shaded terraces equipped with a barbecue or a plancha grill and private entrances. They have in common: a large swimming pool (11 x 5,5 m) on a property of 2.500 sqm facing the vineyards, our house mountain "Gros Cerveau" and a large private parking. They are all equipped with free wireless internet.
A dream of peaceful and untouched surroundings, where the easiness of living and the famous «Provençal accent» cherished by Marcel Pagnol himself persist. Here, the vineyards of the world-famous Bandol and the bronze colored olive-trees are deployed as far as the eye can see.
Mas du Galantin was first mentioned in the official books in the year 1550. It has been extended subsequently over the centuries and reached its actual size in 1897. Historically the property served as vineyard farm to the vine producing domain. It was only in the beginning of the nineteen sixties that both were sold to separate owners and became “Mas du Galantin” (the historical house) and “Domaine Le Galantin” (the vineyard).
We had the chance to become the happy owners of the Mas in 2003. When visiting the first time, we fell in love with the situation, the historic building and felt very good vibes at the property.
We undertook over the years a series of renovations and created the parking and the garden. We created the 3 apartments in the main house – César (145 sqm, sleeping 8), Marius (120 sqm, sleeping 6) and Fanny (90 sqm, sleeping 4) were born. We transformed the cottage at the pool into a cozy apartment – the birth of Panisse (30 sqm, sleeping 4)
Our guests regularly confirm our impression of our first visit – the good vibes at Mas du Galantin. They appreciate the multi-family environment. Many times, we observe children making new friends during their stay at Mas du Galantin and parents having a good time together during their holidays. Many guests are coming back – the biggest compliment we can expect.
