Ralph's House is a rustic farmhouse in the middle of the Forest de Maures. Secluded and peaceful, it's a perfect getaway from city-life. The access is by a forest track. It's 6k from the pretty village of Collobrieres and 30k from the beaches...
Ralph's house is a great place for walkers, bikers, country lovers, outdoor chefs and those who just like to relax with a book or sunbathe in the middle of nowhere...
For weekly rental the whole house is yours, for very short term rentals, I may stay on the premises (at the other end of the house) but you will still have access to all you need including the kitchen..
Interaction with guests
If you stay Ralph's House, I (or one of my trusted neighbours) will meet you in the village and guide you to the house. There I explain everything you need to know. Should there ever be a problem at the house there will always be someone available to help you out...
Other things to note
The water supply is from a natural spring, high up in the hills on private land. The two ex-wild cats that live at the house are very friendly. There are two shady hammocks for afternoon siestas. The nights can be very dark, so flashlights at night are highly recommended. There are lots of wild animals (foxes, toads, boars, ferrets and edible dormice) wandering around in harmony. Outside cooking in the plancha is great fun on a hot summer evening.
Open fires/charcoal bbq's etc are totally banned. Smoking is only allowed only on the terrace in front of the house.
The water is in very short supply in the summer months, so we must economize to the maximum of our abilities. You will find a booklet with guidelines at the house.
