Villa With Private Pool In Beautiful Setting



Updated: 09-Sep-2016
Villa in Fayence, Var, Provence, France - Lovely Views Of Fayence Village And Mountains Beyond

Provençal house in over half an acre (2750 square metres) with views toward the hilltop village of Fayence, a cascade of Roman-tiled roofs crowned by the village bell tower, less than a mile (1.5 km) away. The villa is set in a secluded and sought-after landscaped area of detached properties in their own large grounds. The pretty covered porch-verandah is the perfect place to breakfast before a stroll in the gardens among flowering oleanders, olives, figs and agaves. The pool beckons for the day’s first swim, or you might like to work off the croissants with a game of table tennis before settling back to laze or read on the spacious poolside terrace. Later, you could try your hand at pétanque, or enjoy one of the lovely local walks. Dine on he big house terrace, with its stone-built barbecue, while admiring the view across the valley to Fayence village, washed with colour by the setting sun then dotted with twinkling lights. And be sure to take in some star-gazing before you go to bed.

Superb view

  • 4 of 5

The view makes this property special and the surrounding countryside is spectacular. The villa is in a good location for visits to the lake and the perched villages nearby. However the walk into Fayence requires some level of fitness - very steep aspects each way. Lots of good places to eat there. The villa was clean with adequate facilities and comfy beds, perhaps some new cushions would improve the outside along with sun beds for the pool. The owner was very pleasant and was on hand to help with any problems. If you enjoy the South of France or are new to the area we would recommend this for a family holiday - we certainly had a wonderful time.

beautiful setting

  • 4 of 5

this house is in a beautiful setting with great views over Fayence and the surrounding valley. As soon as you open up the house you are struck by the location. The house is adequately equipped and has a great bbq outside. There are plenty of shady areas around the house for different times of the day. The pool is a great size and temperature. The bedrooms are small and perhaps the house would benefit from the cushions for the outside chairs and swing being renewed as they are a little shabby and there was only one sunbed by the pool. However other than this the internal furniture was clean and comfortable. We were serenaded each evening by the tree frogs and bitten by the mosquitos so go armed with some jungle strength repellent. An enjoyable stay.
