La Ruine was rebuilt in 1999 on the foundations of an old farm by Sylvia and Thijs Riechelmann. After their careers in international advertising and in publishing
they decided to move from Amsterdam to Val de Gilly where they enjoy a new life. They speak French, English and German and are eager to assist their guests with practical information. For a longer stay during the low season (January, February, March, April, November and December) we offer a special price arrangement.
The hamlet built early 19th century and rebuilt while retaining original details.
On the ground floor kitchen, dining table, tv, wood stove and terrace. 1st floor bedroom with fitted wardrobes, bathroom with bathtub, toilet and separate room with washing machine and dryer. 2nd floor living room with patio doors with a beautiful view and insert.
The hamlet is extremely quiet, no shops, no church, no restaurants, not even a pub, therefore it is an oasis of tranquillity with hardly any traffic and it is surrounded by hills, woods and vineyards. 10 minutes drive away you also have the town of Cogolin, where you will find supermarkets, all kinds of stores and many fine restaurants. Sporting possibilities are unlimited for biking, trekking, horse riding, sailing, diving, bikes for rent in Cogolin and of course golf. Over 10 courses (18 holes) are to be found locally. The spacious villa La Ruine and studio are available all year round.
