Secluded Villa With Large Pool And Grounds, Five Bedrooms Sleeps 9-12

Overview

Property

Updated: 03-Nov-2016
Villa in Figanieres, Draguignan, Provence-Alpes-Cote DAzur, France - Peaceful Location Great For Family Holidays

The hillside villa has fabulous views and plenty of space, with easy access to the French Riviera and Provence. The village of Figanieres -- a five minute drive or 30 minute walk -- has narrow streets and an old church. The region is full of wonderful villages, where rural life is thriving. The centre of village life is the (child friendly) bar. There are also great pastry / bread shops, smaller grocery stores, a post office, a natural spring with the best water you have ever tasted and a tourist information centre. A ten minute walk from the house across the vineyards is the nearest wineries, where the excellent local rose may be stolen for 5 Euros a bottle. On a clear day you can see the Mediterranean from the village.

Great villa in a great location with lovely views

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely villa!! Quiet location with great views across the hills. It has all the facilities to comfortably house two families. The pool was large enough and deep enough for the elder family members, yet has a slope for the younger members to be in the water safely too. The BBQ was located to take in the views of the hills whilst being able to keep an eye on the pool area too. Kitchen was large and very well stocked. The living areas of the villa are large and comfortable, but we hardly used them as the outdoor space had everything we needed during the day and late into the evening. The bedrooms were great as were the bathroom and en suites. The villa is fenced and gated so kids can be kept safe. Plenty of parking at the front and we liked the carport too, which helped keep the car cool for us.

The local villages are within a 5 minute drive where you can sit in a traditional French village setting. But 10 minutes away is also the large town of Draguinan, where there are plenty of supermarkets etc etc. The housekeepers were there to meet us and looked after us very well during our stay, they were very knowledgeable about the area and were keen to offer advise.

We really enjoyed this villa and will definelty be coming back at some point in the future.

Fabulous spacious villa

  • 5 of 5

Lovely spacious house with plenty of room for our 2 families to share. Despite the heat we all slept well, really comfortable beds. The highlight of the property is the pool which is fabulous! A great location for exploring - the ferry over to St Tropez and the Gorges du Verdon were highlights. We made good use of the terrace and BBQ for dinners, and also had a lovely meal in the restaurant in Figanieres (Le moulon de mon grand pere). Hope to be back!

All round awesome

  • 5 of 5

The house has all the conveniences of home and then some. WiFi works great. There is a lovely BBQ set up strategically positioned between the pool and the house with fantastic views all round. Two of the bedrooms (both with their own en suite facilities) are located on the ground floor and provide a very private feel away from the rest of the bedrooms that are upstairs. There's lots of patio space both around the house and the infinity poo that allows you to take in the picturesque surroundings. The local vineyard is within easy walking distance and has delicious and very reasonably priced wine especially the rose. The house is clean, charming, comfortable and relaxing. You'll sleep soundly as the beds are great and there's little to disturb you. That said the local town is a short drive away and has everything you would expect if you do feel motivated enough to venture out. Really enjoyed our stay and can't recommend it enough.

Such a beautiful house and location

  • 5 of 5

We had such a nice time. The house and grounds are so spacious that we really felt we were getting away from it all. The double bedroom were a good size and the home is well maintained. The surrounding hillsides and vineyards are charming. It was so fun to explore the local villages. We loved the big deep pool, where we wasted most of our holiday! Thanks so much!

Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Villa Serendipity was brilliant we were two families which the villa catered for exceptionally well lots of ground space and fantastic pool, which we spent most of our time in (kids). The weather was great so that only enhanced an amazing time.

We had never been to the south of France before and absolutely can't wait to go back. The villa was in a excellent location for many destinations, Monaco, St Tropez, Cannes and Waterparks ect. The manager Jaquie looked after us exceptionally well and great for her to be on hand if needed! Cant wait to go back thank you..

Stunning!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful summer holiday at Villa Serendipity. There were 10 of us in total, 5 adults and 5 kids. The villa and its surroundings are stunning, it is extremely spacious and works well for two families with all the amenities you need with children ranging from the ages of 2-15 years! There is plenty of space to chillout inside or out on the terrace looking onto great views across the valley. We cooked on the bbq most evenings and ate out on the terrace which was lovely. The poolside is again spacious and the infinity pool was loved by all, being especially beautiful when the lights were on for late evening swimming races! If you can drag yourself away from the villa, there are plenty of places to visit. Drive 10-15 minutes into the hills and you can find the ancient villages of Bargemon and Callas which are well worth a visit and a lunch stop. The boat trip to St. Tropez is also a great day out. This is the perfect location if you want to get away from it all and relax, the local winery is a 2 minute drive and is a must for delicious rosé. One week was definitely not enough, will go for two weeks next time!
