Adjacent to the Chapel area and past the outdoor BBQ, guests will find another private lawn and garden with a loggia. Inside the loggia, La Chasse Bar and dining area allows guests to enjoy food and drinks in the shade of the stone structure whilst still taking in the spectacular scenery through the large archway. In front of the Chasse Bar, to follow the traditions of the south of France, stands a new petanque field of 90m2, covered by a pergola area with removable waterproof blinds: your new essential place for aperitifs and late evening relaxation.
The new stone esplanade and the staircase offer a breathtaking view of the whole valley and allow access to the terraces of lower olive trees.
On the upper terrace to the south of the house, a circular private saline pool (8 metres in diameter) invites guests to take a dip. Beside the fully heated pool, a charming sun terrace with loungers and parasols is the perfect place to recline, enjoying yet more stunning scenery available from the elevated position of the property. For safety, the pool area can be separated from the gardens by a series of wrought iron gates. There is also has a mandatory pool alarm.
The house is surrounded by the south facing olive terraces, thought to date back to Roman times. Offering exceptional views, the extensive terraced gardens also produces gourmet olive oil from the 350 olive trees within the estate. Around the property, guest will find formal gardens with dining tables, garden seats and sun bathing areas made up of lawns, gravel and stone terraces and paths. Mediterranean planting and a mill stone fountain with garden statues and lighting are more features of the substantial private outdoor space at Château Germaine. The main lavender lawn can be found just outside the main living accommodation, together with a shaded dining terrace for up to 14, which provides panoramic views down the Var valley.
Stairs from the dining terrace lead down to the lower terrace and to the original 17th century Chapel. Within the Chapel, guests will find fitting ecclesiastical furnishings and illuminated roman remains below a glass floor panel in the centre of the room – as well as a large flat screen TV and Table Tennis Table, with comfortable sofas and chairs and a small working organ.
