The large mirror pool is safely equipped by an electrical rolling shutter : BEST SECURITY FOR KIDS The depth of 2 meters at it's center allows plongeons while the large steps able you to get softly into the water. The Happy House is ideal for those who love nature and animals. 2 horses, two cats, one dog and some hens live on the property. All are perfectly well educated : do not bark, do not enter the house, are very docile and friendly with adults and adore children !! They are taken care of by the owners (extremely discreet couple) who live on the property in a completely independent studio hidden behind large non see though screen. Numerous walking and riding paths are directly accessible. The Happy House is only 300 meters away from a supermarket (open 7/7, with gaz station), only 800 meters from charming hilltop village of Bagnols-en-Forêt (bakers, restaurants, bars, chemist, doctors...), 20 min. from the famous sand beaches of Saint Raphaël, Fréjus and Saint Aygulf. 35 minutes from Cannes, 1 hour from the international Nice Airport, 1 hour from Saint Tropez. Wifi internet access, cable TV. Plenty of table games, DVDs in all languages, CDs, books (in english and french) and toys for children. We can welcome your horse in a paddock with shelter. Please check for details with the owner. The house is composed of : 4 Bedrooms (one on garden floor), 2 full bathrooms (one on garden floor with large shower and bidet, the other on top floor with bathtub) 2 independant WC (one with sink on garden floor, the other upstairs) 'THE HAPPY STUDIO' is composed of a main room with single that can be transformed into a real double king size bed, an open fully equipped kitchen, a shower room with WC and a mezzanine with a small double bed that can accommodate 2 children or one adult (120cm large). HOUSE LAYOUT: The ground floor : Entrance hall, dining room (table for 12) giving direct access to the garden. Living room with large angle sofa, independent kitchen with eating space for 4. Kitchen with direct access to beautiful covered terrasse of 20m2 facing the pool. The covered terrasse is equipped with table for 8 seatings. A small corridor goes from the entrance hall to the ground floor : One bedroom with king size bed of 160x190, a separate bathroom with large shower (140x90), a sink and a bidet, an independent WC and sink. On the first floor : 3 bedrooms, one independent WC, one bathroom with angle bath and a sink.

Air Conditioning in living and dining room areas. All bedrooms are equipped with mosquito screens so that you can sleep with windows open and avoid to use chemical mosquito repellents. That said, Bagnols is at an altitude of 280 meters and benefits from a very pleasant soft breeze, which you will appreciate, especially on hot evening summers that can be unbreathable on the coast ! Do not worry, there aren't that many mosquitoes around here and your will enjoy dining outside on the terrasse. It is just that one mosquito in a bedroom can be such an annoyance ! The house is near everything ! A small supermarket open 7/7 with gas station is only 500 meters away. The village is only a two minutes car ride away and can be accessed by bicycle without having to take the main road, the path is steep, but can be done ! There you will find two bakeries, some restaurants, bars, a small open air market, a chemist, doctors, nurses, the school, the Office of Tourism and even a small museum. The Hyper-markets are at 10 minutes car ride (SuperU, Intermarché, Leclerc). But at the same time we are in a charming environment in the middle of nature with a direct access to the hiking or horse riding paths. We have implanted the house so that it would be away from the eyes of the neighbors (only one house is close to ours, but it has no view over the garden or pool). The pool is surrounded by nature, with flowers blooming all year round. The fruits from the garden are a delicacy for the children (strawberries, raspberries, blackcurrant, redcurrant, blackberries,gooseberries, peaches, cherries, prunes, grapes). There isn't that many, but having the diversity is fun ! And the hens give us their extra fresh organic eggs every morning ! In Bagnols-en-Forêt you will find an organic producer of vegetables. In a 'Marché Paysan' (gathering of local farmers), located only 10 minutes car ride from here, you will be able to purchase organic meat, cheeses, fruits, vegetables, wine, olive oil, honey, flowers...

Interaction with guests
The owners will be here to welcome you to the Happy House and to show you around the property. They will be more than happy to answer your questions about the house and the animals living on the property, suggest restaurants, local producers, walks and sights to be seen. They know how to make themselves very discreet so you will not see them if you do not want to see them during your stay, but they will come to clean the pool, water the garden and feed the animals regularly.
