Welcome to Carpe Diem!

Olivier and Anne welcome visitors throughout the year to their B&B in Callian, a delightful Provencal village in Haut Var, midway between sea and mountain.

We have 3 guest rooms each with its own natural charm and all available throughout the year. Or you may like to rent the villa in its entirety (summer only).

Each bedroom opens on to a private terrace overlooking the garden. From the middle of the olive trees, you’ll get a superb view of the Saint Cézaire Hills.

The region

The Land of Faience with its nine hilltop villages including Seillans, Mons and Montauroux is close to the Riviera. The house is just half an hour from Cannes, Fréjus and Saint Raphaël and is close to Nice, Monaco and Saint-Tropez.

Learn to row on the Saint Cassien Lake. Discover the secrets of perfume making in Grasse or enjoy an excursion into the Verdon Gorge.

Our ecological B&B

Our B&B is just like us. You’ll receive a warm, family welcome and we’ll be only too delighted to share with you our passion for nature and the charms of this part of Provence.

Our B&B is well-known for its authentic atmosphere and its environmentally-friendly values. In fact, we have been awarded  La Clef Verte, the first international environmental accreditation for ecological visitor accommodation.

The Garden

You’ll spend your holidays in a wonderful setting amid the olive groves, in an area of unspoilt natural beauty.

The tranquil setting respects the natural environment.

We give priority to Mediterranean plants that are ideal in this environment. The olive tree is, of course, our emblem and we have more than thirty of them on our land but we also grow cypress, pines, rock roses, lavender, thyme and basil– with many more plants that you have yet to discover!

The garden is a magical place, appealing to all the senses – sight because of the various shades of green and the splashes of colour from the flowers, touch when you walk barefoot in the grass or lean up against a tree, smell as you breathe in the scents of lime blossom or rock rose leaves, hearing with the chirping of the birds and song of the crickets, and taste when you bite into a cherry tomato ripened by the sun and try to define the subtle taste of a borage flower.

Family holidays

On site, you’ll find plenty to do. There’s a large trampoline, a ping-pong table, a boules pitch, a wooden hut, a slide, board games etc.  and, of course, the swimming pool.

Parents are responsible for children using the pool, play areas and games.

Swimming pool

We have turned the old pond into a swimming pool, hence its unusual shape.

  • The water is treated naturally using salt chlorination, avoiding the need for chlorine-based products.
  • Loungers are set out around the pool so that you can laze away the hours in the shade of an olive tree or in the sunshine on the patio.
  • You can take a quick dip in the pool to cool down, play with your children or swim for a bit longer.
  • Length 11m  Depth 1.40m
