Overview

About the property

Villa near Les Arcs, Cote D'Azur, Provence, France - Private Pool with South Facing Terraces

Situated off a quiet country lane, this pretty 5-bedroomed villa nestles peacefully in one and half acres of enclosed gently terraced gardens. Surrounded by mature pines and oak woods which offer privacy and natural shade. The villa has a private pool and south facing paved sun terraces. It is a private home and very much loved and enjoyed by its owners. It is beautifully finished with local Salerne floor tiles and has a welcoming and comfortable interior with a traditional fireplace for off-season periods. The property enjoys good access (no long drives up unmade roads!), it's 1 hour from Nice Airport, 15 minutes from Autoroute A8, and 10 minutes from Les Arcs SNCF rail station (5 hours to Paris by TGV).

Guestbook comments from the manager

From Sue Cross:- 'We've got nothing but lovely memories of our two weeks at Villa Fleuron and it really provided us with rest and relaxation we were looking for. It is extremely well equipped - the best equipped self-catering house I've ever stayed in and I've stayed in quite a few at home and abroad! Also very peaceful - just the occasional huge splash of my husband diving into the swimming pool broke the peace and tranquillity of the place'

From John and Marilyn Beasley:- 'Just a line to say how much we enjoyed our stay at your beautiful villa, in the end it was only the two of us, but we had a great time just relaxing, we were so comfortable we only ate out a few times making good use of the bbq. All requirements were catered for and we loved the area so much we are now thinking of a villa of our own. Thank you once again.'

Excellent well equiped villa - great for families

  • 5 of 5

The location of the villa was brilliant - not far from major attractions butalso secluded as well. Our stay on the villa was as two families with children. The children were very well catered for with outdorr toys, bikes, videos - it was great having stuff on hand to entertain them. Us adults fully appricated how well equiped the villa was - we have never been anyway which comes close! The answer to "I wonder if there is a ...." was normally yes!

We didn't really use the swimming pool as it was unheated and too cold whilst we were there but I woudl imagine in summer it would be a great place to cool down.

We would definately recommend this place to friends - its certaibly somewhere we would come back to!

Owner's Response: The pool is unheated, as are most private pools in the South of France, and for those renting early season it will be cold. However from mid-May onwards it should be acceptable, and by mid-June you can expect a nice warm temperature.

Love villa on a peaceful country setting

  • 5 of 5

This is a very spacious villa set in a peaceful country setting. Various Provençal villages and small towns are minutes away.

The five bedrooms are large and comfortable. The lounge and TV area are large and very comfortably furnished.

The kitchen has everything you could wish for.

It was great to have the choice of outdoor eating areas (outside the kitchen, by the pool, or outside the lounge) depending where the sun was shining!

We will definitely consider visiting again.

Villa Fleuron

  • 4 of 5

Our family (ages 21-54) enjoyed a relaxing holiday at Villa Fleuron in the Haut Var region of Provence. The villa is clean, comfortable and well-appointed with all 'mod cons' including decent wifi. The pool is pretty cool in May, but is refreshing on a hot day, and there are plenty of loungers and chairs to relax on the extensive patios. There are several hypermarkets within 10 km to buy groceries. A car is essential as all shops and restaurants are at least 8 km away.

The guest book contains lots of useful information and tips on places to visit and sights to see. We tended to eat out in Flayosc or BBQ in the evenings, and can particularly recommend La Salle a Manger, owned by a very friendly Dutch couple. We found plenty to do during our 2-weeks stay, including canoeing along the Gorges du Verdon; day trips/picnics to the Massif des Maures, Cotignac, Villecroze, Sillans-la-Cascade, Tourtour, Grimaud; a morning at the market in Lorgues; and the boat trip from St Maxime to St Tropez.

Back at the villa, the table tennis, badminton and boules provided fun distractions when we weren't reading by the pool or playing card and board games. There is a large TV (and smaller TVs in the bedrooms), but we only watched some football and tennis matches on a couple of evenings.

Peter the caretaker is very friendly and helpful, and at the end of the phone should you need him. David and Liz, the owners, provided clear instructions and advice in good time before we set off, and responded promptly to our queries.

Great place, great stay.

  • 5 of 5

The house and the surroundings is nice and quiet. We stayed there for two weeks and had a great time. From the house it is great to get around in Provance. We had a rentel car and went to some of the famous coast cities. We had also a day tripp to Georges du Verdon. Every evening we satt outside and grilled. The pool is great but be aware that you cant see the pool from the house because of a big hegde. There is a pool alarm that you can use if you need too because of small children. The bedrooms are big and the kitchen well equitted. There is also a outdoor ping pong table that we used a lot. There is a fence around the garden so we could let the children walk arond in the big garden without us beeing worried. We hope we will get back some time.
