About Bob and Maureen De Barr

Bob and I fell in love with Fayence when by chance we set off from Cannes after a busy Conference in the chic Cote D'Azur, in order to explore the wonders of Provence. Within a short drive we were passing a magnificent lake, the famous Lac de Saint Cassien which took our breath away. Fortunately we spotted an estate agents office and stopped to enquire where we were, to be told we were in the Commune of Fayence with its 5 hilltop villages, Fayence being the most bustling. And so our French adventure began! We bought a 40 year old house set in the most splendorous gardens, south facing with uninterrupted views. And then we planned to build a new villa L'Echappee Belle. 'Twas indeed an exciting adventure, flying down regularly to inspect the works, choose the materials, plan the garden and the pool and eventually sell the "old" house just as the new one L'Echappee Belle was completed in May 2007. Many, many happy holidays and quick weekend breaks have been had. Hope you love it as much as we do!!

Bob and Maureen De Barr purchased this villa in 2007

Beautiful villa near Fayence

  • 5 of 5

L'Echappee Belle is a beautiful villa located near Fayence. The villa is spacious, on two levels, has a nice patio and a large pool, the property is kids friendly. All amenities necessary for a comfortable sejour are available. Fayence, a beautiful "village perche" in its own right, is very conveniently located, permitting easy visits from the Mediterranean shore to the Gorges du Verdon. The owners have been very responsive to any demands we had. A special notice for Kevin Weir, the manager, who went out of his way to help us.

We loved the property and will gladly return for a future vacation.

Everything you expect...and more

  • 5 of 5

We have spent our holidays near Fayence a couple of years in a row in various villas of the same luxury class. It is fair to say that L'Echappee Belle stood out from all of them. The house combines a great location in real walking distance from the village with the superb views and calm you would normally only find in houses which are distant from a town center. The house has 4 really sizeable bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms which are truelly suited for 8. Decoration is very pleasant and everything you need for a holiday is present and catered for with a touch of family atmosphere to it.

We have spent many holidays in France and have often had negative elements to say about a rental but in this case, we really cannot find anything. Great place to stay in a very interesting area with lot's to see and visit or with pubs and restaurants a stroll away for those who just want to relax French style...
