About the property

Sleeps 6, with 3 double bedrooms, 3 shower rooms, 1 separate WC

Single level villa set in a beautiful garden of 6,300 m2 with mature oak and olive trees, at walking distance (only 600 meters) from the perched medieval village of Flayosc with its many shops, restaurants and bars.

With 3 bedrooms; master bedroom with French windows leading to the terrace and en suite shower room with WC, second bedroom facing north and third bedroom facing west, a second shower room, 1 separate WC, spacious sitting room with fireplace, wooden beams and dining area, well-equipped kitchen and utility room with washing machine..

Large covered terrace overlooking a flat lawn and pool area with a large private swimming pool (12 x 5.5). Double carport just next to the house.

An extension linking the house and pool house is to be built over winter 2015/16, see 3D diagram (no. 4) in Photos. The new accommodation will, however, not be available to rent.

The property is private - but far from being isolated.

An ideal setting for a family or a group of friends sharing their holiday.

There are plenty of nice walks near the property.

The Area: The area: Situated 0.5 km from the centre of Flayosc, 5 kilometres west of Draguignan, 1 hour from Nice Airport. Only 40 min away from the sandy beaches of the St. Tropez bay and the dramatic scenery of Gorges de Verdon. Perched medieval villages, olive mills, wine tasting and first class gourmet restaurants. There are 15 challenging golf courses within an hour's drive. There are plenty of nice countryside walks near the house.

Flayosc: Flayosc: The village Flayosc is the perfect location to relax and enjoy the beauty of Provence, only 40 minutes away from the busy tourist spots of the coast. The village offers excellent shops for food, a weekly market, pharmacy, bank, several bars and restaurants, laundry/dry cleaner and wine cooperative. It also has a tourist office offering excellent information about the area.

Beautiful holiday home

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your beautiful home, the house, pool and garden are beautiful.

The garden has both shade and sun which was perfect for our family, and the view about the valley was just marvellous!

For our wheelchair bound daughter the whole place was perfect.

This was the first time we stayed in this area and in your house but we will definitely book again!! Such a lovely relaxing, homely environment and such a lot to do around and about.

Charming, peaceful and very comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here and would highly recommend it. The villa, garden and pool area are spacious and well laid out. The setting is very tranquil with a lovely view from the end of the garden. The villa is charming, comfortable and well-equipped (the wi-fi and home entertainment options especially). We particularly liked breakfast outside gazing at the view, dipping into the pool on sun-baked afternoons and the spacious living room with large comfortable sofas, perfect for family time watching films, playing cards and games, etc. in the evening. The location is private without being isolated. The sweet little village is a short walk away for shops, bars and restaurants. Lively Draguignan and the large supermarkets, etc. are 10-15 minutes or so by car. Day excursions to spectacular sights like the Gorges du Verdon or to the coast are less than an hours drive. Trevor, the owner, was the perfect mix of welcoming, attentive and informative without being at all intrusive so we felt we were in good hands at all times. As a result, we spent a blissful and very relaxing week here. Highly recommended.

Your place is amazing and we had a wonderful time there. It really did

have everything that we wanted and for the first time ever we all wanted

to go back to the same place again! The pool was perfect, the house

beautiful and ideal for my wheelchair bound son, the garden had a

marvelous balance between shade and sun and what a location!

We had a wonderful holiday.

  • 4 of 5

The location is excellent being private with lovely views and walking distance (albeit a bit up and down) to the village. The house itself has some very pretty parts and the pool and pool area were great. We found the kitchen a bit dated and hard to clean but overall it had everything we needed. We would certainly return.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your review Janet. You are right, the traditional Provencale kitchen layout is a tiny bit harder to clean than a modern fitted kitchen. Though we like it partly because it hasn't been modernised. Please do return.

Just what we were after

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this house for 2 weeks in the summer of 2013. It was the perfect layout for 4 adults and 2 kids. We were walking distance to town and the layout of the house was perfect for giving everyone privacy, but also being all together. We spent many evenings sitting outside playing cards on the patio. The kids loved running in the yard and splashing in the pool. We've been to France many times for summer holidays and this was definitely my favorite house. Thank you!

Beautiful property in a delightful village

  • 5 of 5

This is a delightful property in a lovely little village. We chose it because of the wheelchair access as it's flat and has a pretty accessible bathroom but would have been equally happy with it had we not needed that feature. The living room is gorgeous - rather country chic, if that makes sense, with three good bedrooms (the accessible one very large with an en suite). The kitchen was well stocked with everything we could have needed. It's walkable into the village although we chose to drive when taking the wheelchair as it's a bit undulating under foot. Good bakeries for breakfast goods and several nice restaurants. The outdoor area is very flat with a gorgeous pool (with a hoist if needed). Would highly recommend this villa.
