Guestbook comments from the owner

We found the villa location excellent as was the pool,with suitable shopping and lovely restaurants in Fayence. Whilst the villa was in a tranquil location it was not that far to go to beach resorts and fun parks. L Dowson

Great hosts-superb facilities-great location. N Bourgoyne

Stunning views from the pool,very comfortable sunloungers for the sun seeking person. Upper terrace superb for evening dining. Close to all sightseeing, walkable distance to shops (for the fit) friendly but discreet owners.L Nixon

Just to let you know we had a fabulous holiday,the villa,weather and the owner all made for a lovely holiday in a perfect French setting. C Holt.

Spectacular haven in 2 hectares of fabulousness!

  • 5 of 5

Our favourite villa yet booked through Owners Direct: 2 hectares with well-equipped villa; poolhouse & BBQ area; personal boules pit; gorgeous terrace and spectacular views all round.

And then there's the little pathway through your own woods with multiple waterfalls and natural pools in your very own stream, which our children loved. They spent hours every day jumping into the stream all the way down to the bridge (where the grounds end), then climbing back up the rocks in the water.

The local village of Tourrettes is a haven for artists, and the little square by the town hall a real treat (again with amazing views) for a drink or bite to eat.

Fayence is only 10-15 minutes walk up the hill to the local baker; butcher and restaurants, and has a small supermarket that stocks English papers amongst other groceries etc.

The local lake (St. Cassien) is only 15 minutes drive away, and great for swimming; hiring pedalos (our kids loved having a pedalo with a slide off the back); kayaks or venturing (in life jackets) onto the obstacle course of large inflatables in the water.

Owners Paul, Guillemette and their dog Noushka are very welcoming and on hand (next door) for any guidance as to where to visit locally; to show you around if required, but very much leave guests to their own peace and quiet.

We adored Les Cascades and will definitely return to share with additional family members and friends: special, special, special! We fell in love with it....

Little piece of paradise

  • 5 of 5

A lovely villa, in a wonderful location with delightful owners.

We stayed for a 2 week holiday and could have easily stayed another week! The villa location is truly special set within the owners grounds amongst trees and floral beds. The views from the terrace and pool are spectacular with the sound of the river below. The local village is within walking distance albeit slightly hilly and the slightly larger town of fayence within easy reach with local amenities. We enjoyed some excellent meals in both Tourettes and Fayence. The house is an ideal base to explore the coast and we particularly enjoyed our trips to St. Tropez, St. Raphael and Monte Carlo. The latter is a must for F1 enthusiasts and it's not as expensive as you think. We ate in a lovely restaurant in a square just off the main promenade which was very reasonable.

The villa is light and airy and the beds extremely comfortable. All the bedrooms are a good size and there's plenty of seating areas both within the property and around the grounds.

We had never stayed in a property where the owners live within the grounds as we enjoy peace and seclusion, which we found here. Paul and Guillemette (the owners) are lovely people and we enjoyed having them easily accessible to offer advice and suggestions for days out. They were completely unobtrusive, respecting our privacy whilst being friendly and helpful at the same time. An added bonus was their boxer puppy, Nouschka who came to visit us on invitation.

I would certainly recommend this villa and hope to return ourselves in the not too distant future.

Best holiday ever!

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderfully comfortable, well equipped and spacious villa in a truly spectacular setting - incredible views and even a natural stream with waterfalls on site. Everything has been thought of and we had a fantastic and very relaxing week there in August with our 4 children aged from 4 to 13yrs. The stunning infinity pool was a huge hit with all the family and we spent many hours of fun there. We enjoyed walking to the nearby villages and visiting the market but our main aim was to relax and we couldn't have found a more perfect and beautiful place to do so. A big thanks to the extremely kind and helpful owners who go out of their way to ensure a relaxing holiday for their guests... we very much hope to see you again!

Highly recommended.

Living The Dream

  • 5 of 5

Location! Location! Location! Les Villas Cascades is absolutely beautiful. It is close to everything you could want to do in the French Riviera and still snuggled away nicely high up in a valley with privacy and peacefulness. You are walking distance to two beautiful towns (Tourettes/Fayence) with amazing history and beautiful vistas of the surrounding areas. The infinity pool and picturesque valley along with the sounds of a waterfall create and an amazing peace.

I have stayed at many vacation rentals and this by far has been the best. The property owners are truly nice family people who give you all the privacy you need while being there to help in anyway should you need. Absolutely just nice, genuine people. I cannot say enough great things about the property and the owners. I highly, highly recommend! I know my family and I look forward to our return. I would book well in advance because it is a high demand property.
