About Michael Lohn

My wife and I live in England but spend many weeks each year at Tifaluna as we have now retired.

We had previously taken many holidays renting properties in France and Italy. The properties unfortunately were rarely welcoming or particularly comfortable so we decided to buy our own with the features we preferred and furnish it as we wished. Although we had expected to compromise on our wish list Villa Tifaluna not only ticked all our boxes but over time has ticked many which we had not listed.

We have visited all the places we have listed and sampled many of the activities. We have spent many enjoyable weeks at Tifaluna and we wish you as much enjoyment if you should choose to rent the villa.

Why Michael Lohn chose Esterel - Fayence

Villa Tifaluna provides a totally secluded hideaway, with panoramic views, just minutes from every facility. The villa, built in the Provencal style, is fitted out to the highest level of specification. Externally there are numerous place to sun bath, lounge, eat and drink with an "L" shaped infinity pool for cooling off.

The location is convenient to the many towns and resorts on the Mediterranean, and inland to Lac de St Cassien, Grasse, the Gorges du Verdon and the many village perche.

Family Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Wow, this place provided the perfect base for our family holiday. With an extended family group of seven ranging from 4 to 79 years, all needs were met, and more;

Stunning views to enjoy, an amazing pool, beautiful outdoor space whether lazing by the pool, reading on the patio, or eating outside. From a practical point, plenty of shaded areas available.

The villa is equipped to a high standard, providing everything you should need to make it feel like home (great kitchen facilities, freesat, wifi, plenty of towels, and outdoor seating/loungers). Layout also works well for a larger group with a nice sitting area, separate bathroom/toilets and good bedroom sizes.

From a location point of view, this is the perfect base for exploring local villages, the lake, and also easy access to major towns and cities of the Cote d'Azur. We enjoyed the variety this provided whether we fancied a day at the beach, pottering around a local market, or taking in some of the tourist sites and attractions.

A car is essential.

We were very happy with all the information and instructions provided by the owner prior to arrival and also had contact details for a helpful 'site manager' during our stay if needed. On our last day, a team of cleaners arrived promptly to ensure the house was prepared for the next group.

Overall, we would highly recommend this and hope to return again ourselves!

Great property, well laid out & equipped

  • 5 of 5

Idyllic lounging by the infinity pool with a view of terracotta roofs and olive-green poplars dotting the French hillsides. Loved the layout of the spacious L-shaped villa with the master bedroom at one end, with three others on the mezannine at the other, so everyone can relax. Great idea to put a ping pong table in the garage. Good kitchen, well equipped. Bathrooms are functional, but not stunning, beds are comfortable but not luxuriously wide, and I would recommend bringing your own hairdryer.

Villa Tifaluna

  • 5 of 5

The villa was a most delightful and spacious property which was very well equipped and managed. It is situated in a private and quiet residential area with a large supermarket and several boulangeries within a few minutes drive to get fresh croissants, pain au chocolat, brioches and baguettes for daily breakfast.

The large garden allowed one to escape for a quiet snooze in the Cote d’Azur sunshine after a quick dip in the pool. There were ample sun lounge chairs for our family of six adults and even a paddling pool and pool toys for our 9-month old toddler.

One of the most pleasing features was the affinity pool granting unrestricted view of the surrounding area. Consequently, having breakfast, lunch and dinner out on the terrace was a joy to behold watching the rising and setting sun.

The villa manager based locally was most helpful and so was the owner.

Everyone of our party enjoyed our stay at this most homely and delightful villa. It is highly recommended.

Villa Tifaluna

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful Villa in beautiful gardens. The villa itself was to very high standards including satellite TV and internet connections. Well laid out bedrooms and good bathrooms / kitchens. We spent virtually all of out time from waking up to going to bed sitting in the garden. The most wonderful views. Without doubt the exterior lighting was the best we have experienced in France.

Swimming pool was great and loved by our grandchildren. 5 year old and 9 year old.

The Lake just a mile away is a must for children with pedalos, safe swimming areas and bouncing castles within the water. Also sunbeds and eating facilities.

Wonderful little villages within a few miles of the property.Only downside was very limited Restaurants within realistic walking distances. A car is essential.

Owner very helpful and 'site manageress' obliging.

Would recommend
