About Kim Woodley

I'm a recently retired Headteacher who enjoys holidaying in this most wonderful part of the south of France. My family of all ages from 1 week to 93 have enjoyed fabulous holidays at all times of the year in our special holiday villa. We are delighted to invite others to enjoy our house when we cannot be there. To ensure you have a happy holiday we have a wonderful local English lady (Karen) who looks after the house and guests and also Steve who cares for the pool, hot tub and gardens.

Kim Woodley purchased this villa in 2004

Why Kim Woodley chose Esterel - Fayence

We bought this holiday home in 2004. We had searched along the south of France for a house that was in a quiet location but easy to reach shops, local markets and the beautiful hilltop villages as well as being near enough for our youngsters to get to the beaches and the lively towns of Cannes, Nice, St Tropez etc. We found this house and fell in love! and have since had a magical Christmas there and numerous summer, spring and Autumn breaks. It is a very easy 40 minute journey from Nice airport where the car hire is cheap with a wide choice.

What makes this villa unique

The pool and outdoor hot tub offer the most relaxing days with the evening entertainment being the 2 metre wide home cinema system, boules, table tennis, games or a more leisurely bit of peace watching the amazing sunsets.

A property that really exceeds your expectations..

  • 5 of 5

Wow ! Everything one could ever wish for when arriving at a holiday destination.. The sheer size of the place and facilities it offers gives way to a very enjoyable holiday. The outside space the pool and hot tub add to the comfort of your stay. The Barbecue area which is covered also offers enough space to cool off on very hot days. A very comfortable area indeed. With the addition of a fridge freezer shower and toilet area all for ones amenities. The whole space gave a sense of ease throughout. The Villa inside does not disappoint in any way. From the comfortable lounge and dining area to the very well stocked kitchen. All 5 bedrooms were extremely comfortable with a private bathroom to 3 of the rooms and a shared bathroom to the 2 rear bedrooms.

Very child friendly. The whole property is very well maintained and very clean on arrival. Lovely bedding and towels including pool towels. The owner was brilliant throughout my booking. After I had explained this was my first visit to France she really went to a lot of trouble giving me information to help with my stay. The villa is approx 40 minutes from Nice airport. A local supermarket and restaurants are all within a 6 minute drive, with some quite beautiful areas to explore within a 15 minute drive.Fayence in particularly is beautiful with a local market 3 times a week round the beautiful church. We enjoyed many meals throughout the day and also the evening in this area. You are also very close by a local glider club who serves really great food. The Home cinema was great. We had 2 weeks of comfort in this very idiotic Villa and was very sad to leave. We would certainly like to return.

Owner's Response: I am delighted you had such a wonderful time for your first visit to france and had such a great stay in my house. I am really pleased you have already asked to return. I did laugh at your 'typo' about my 'idiotic' villa - isn't spellcheck annoying when you try to put idyllic! Many thanks for explaining this and I look forward to welcoming you next year.

Amazing, so relaxing, comfortable and spacious

  • 5 of 5

Such a great house with so much space, good sized bedrooms, the luxury of having four bathrooms, a large lounge with a huge swimming pool, a brilliant hot tub and several terraces of garden to relax in and enjoy the spectacular views. Everything was so clean and comfortable with all amenities provided to ensure the most relaxing holiday. There are indoor and outdoor games, maps, books and a vast selection of DVDs to enjoy in the evening on the amazing home cinema system with its surround sound. The kitchen has everything you could think of to prepare meals with the great asset of an outside kitchen and large pool house in which to enjoy evenings watching the stunning sunsets over the valley. This was an incredible holiday in such a fabulous location within very easy reach of shops, the coast as well as the many wonderful old villages with their markets, beautiful old houses and churches. So many places to visit and all so easy to find. The owner sent extremely useful information and was very happy to chat about the house and area before our stay and whilst at the house Karen and Steve, who look after it, could not have been ,more helpful and always ready to offer advice and explain anything at all. It is definitely a place to recommend for all ages from the very young to the more senior members of a family and we have enjoyed several holidays here and will be back as soon as possible.

Amazing house with so many facilities, spectacular views, spacious, clean, great value.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful family holiday; relaxing, enjoying the excellent facilities of the large heated pool, the great hot tub, evenings with the home cinema and occasional energetic afternoons of badminton, darts, table tennis or boules!

The house is spacious with good sized rooms, lots of extras such as board games, a high quality sound system, wifi, books, a very well equipped kitchen and 4 terraces in the garden so plenty of space for everyone to socialise or find some solitude.

It is also well situated for touring the many lovely old villages, a great local vineyard, the vast Lac St Cassien and also easy access to the A8 which quickly gets you to Cannes, Nice, Antibes, Frejus as well as St Tropez and the Gorge du Verdon.

There are some very well stocked supermarkets very near by as well as pattiseries, butchers, fishmongers, great restaurants, banks and other clothes and craft shops. Local markets take place weekly and there is a huge area around the house to explore on foot, by bike or car.

Definitely a house suited to families of all ages as well as groups of friends.

The owner is extremely helpful and Karen and Steve who look after the house and pool were amazing and went out of their way to make our stay a very happy and truly memorable experience.

Our next stay here is already booked!

Fantastic holiday in a fantastic villa

  • 5 of 5

Family of 4 adults stayed in the villa for 1 week, and enjoyed every minute. The villa catered for all our needs and was very well equipped. We happily spent most of our days relaxing poolside and enjoying the fabulous views. The outdoor kitchen was great and had plenty of use during our stay.

We didnt venture too far, except for popping to Monaco which was not too far away, around 40mins. There's plenty to do around the villa and places to explore. There's also a good supermarket no more than 5-10mins away by car.

We were greeted and taken care of throughout our stay by Karen, who we could ring day or night to resolve any issues. This was a nice touch and could prove useful.

We have been on numerous villa holidays in the South of France over the past 15years and this one ranks highly. We will definitely return as soon as we can...but for 2 weeks this time :)

Great holiday at this beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a very relaxing and enjoyable holiday in this lovely villa. The view from the pool terrace is fantastic and the pool was large enough for all our inflatables. We loved eating dinner at the large pool house table while watching the sun set and drinking the local vino. Kim (the owner) provided great information before out travels and Karen and Steve who manage the property are both very pleasant and helpful. The local restaurants are a short drive away and are very reasonably priced. We recommend "Le Lac" overlooking the nearby Lac de Saint-Cassien
