Each bedroom is equipped with an air condition system.

COMMENTS FROM OWNER GUESTBOOK

After many hours of internet search we finally got sight of Bel Air. The choice showed to be very successful - the place fulfilled all our expectations plus much more. Fabulous location, quality of house and garden and unlimited possibilities of privacy. The village has charm and anything that cold-blooded Nordics might expect to experience without too much effort. Bel Air is a place the owners can be very proud of. / Elise and Leif-Erik and family, 9-16 July 2005.

After travelling through France for a week we arrived at this beautiful villa with its breathtaking views. Both our families have had a wonderful time at your lovely home in Provence. We will never forget this holiday and hope one day to return. / Sue & John, Tony & Hilary with families, 24 - 31 July 2005.

FANTASTIC LOCATION AND WONDERFUL ACCOMODATION

  • 5 of 5
Our group of 7 wonen ages 60-75 found Villa BelAir when searching the internet for villas in Provence. We could not have been more delighted as "what we saw was what we got." We have now done 7 holidays overt the last 15 years in the Loire Valley, Tuscany, Catalonia, Porto and now Provence with a similar mode of operation. We rent a villa to use as a base for our regional travels and make day trips from the villa over the week's rental. Bel Air is in a lovely setting with a gorgeous view of Flayosc. The bedrooms were large and the communal spaces fine for our large group. The furnishings were comfortable though not luxurious, and there were plenty of books and maps around for use. The property is gated and we felt very secure. We mostly ate breakfasts and more than half of our dinners at the villa. The lovely June weather allowed us to always eat outside on a terrace with a large table that easily held us all and we were able to see Flayosc in the distance. We had some difficulty with the TV reception but this was fixed once we realized the cable wire wasn't connected to the cable box. In addition, we had a problem with our door knob but this was quickly resolved with a phone call to the manager, whose husband was able to fix it without any cramp in our schedule. Our location was very close to many picturesque towns including TourTour and Villacruze and within 90 minutes of the Grand Canyon of Verdun and the beaches of the Mediteranean. The bathrooms except for the master, were rather small but plentiful. There was no available hair dryer that we could find and I would suggest that it would be good to provide several if possible. The pool was large and beautiful and swimmable in early June. The caretaker did not speak English, but the manager was available for questions as well. We were very well pleased with our trip and it was enhanced by the wonderful villa we stayed at.

Owner's Response: I've been the manager of this villa for almost 10 years and I dare to say that all rental guests have had a very good time at VIlla Bel Air.
As to the hair dryer; the owner left it in the Master bathroom but unfortunately the cleaning lady thought it was private and put it away.
As from today the hair dryer is back in this bathroom for the rental guests to use.
Welcome to Villa Bel Air - a 4 bedroom villa all witg en suite bath/shower rooms; for a large family or a group of friends.

AUTUMN IN PROVENCE

  • 5 of 5
Our family had a wonderful time staying here. The house is large and well laid out so that even with a big group or children there was space for all. The kitchen is well equipped. We would often visit all the nearby markets and come home and sample them all. There are lots of activities within an hour's drive for the kids and lots of wineries for the adults to explore within 15 minutes! Flayosc is well situated between the mountains and the coast. The autumn colors were beautiful -- a little too cool for us to enjoy the pool this time -- but we will be back.

IDEAL VILLA FOR TWO OR MORE COUPLES

  • 4 of 5
We stayed at Villa Bel Air with three other couples in late summer. The location is perfect for visiting this part of Provence and nearby Flayosc has good restaurants and bars for a village of its size. There is an excellent Carrefour supermarket about 10 minutes drive away on the outskirts of Draguignan. Flayosc is a 15 minute up-hill walk from the villa, part of which is along a fairly busy road with no footpath. Villa Bel Air is on high ground opposite Flayosc and therefore benefits from a fine view of the village and hills to the south.

The villa is furnished and equipped in fairly basic and typical fashion so could disappoint those expecting 'luxury' accommodation. However, the price fairly reflects this. It has four double/twin rooms each with en-suite and air-conditioning, which is a particular advantage when the party consists of two or more couples. The kitchen contained sufficient crockery, utensils etc. for eight adults. The outside terrace is pleasant and has a shaded area ideal for dining. Thanks to excellent weather during our stay, we did not need to make much use of the large lounge. Wireless access to the internet worked well.

The pool is very well kept and regularly maintained and all the staff who look after the property are helpful and friendly.

There is more than enough car-parking within the grounds of the villa. The directions we were given to the villa were good and you are well advised to follow them rather than rely entirely on sat-nav, as it is best approached from Flayosc rather than from Draguignan in order to avoid difficult turns.

In summary Villa Bel Air entirely suited our holiday requirements and we would recommend it.

BEL-AIR HOLIDAY

  • 5 of 5
Our three families arrived at villa Bel-Air to find everything we had expected. The villa was very well equipped and all necessary comforts provided for.The lovely pool was well used by adults and children alike.
The most amazing views to the village of Flayosc from the terrace were a delight and to look out from the upper balcony at night when all the lights in the village were on was wonderful.
We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Bel-Air and have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone contemplating a stay in the area.

GREAT VIEWS FROM THE HOUSE-LOVELY POOL

  • 4 of 5
Enjoyed my two weeks at the house with three other couples and while the overall experience was positive there were a few things we were all not thrilled with.
You might want to ask the rental agent about the stray dog and garbage situation before you commit to this one. And having enough keys for the house and the gate.
If she has not straightened it all out-take a pass.
Also some shabby furnishings that could use replacement -lounge chair bottoming out and duct tape on the walls in kitchen and dinnning area-was not appreciated. But the kitchen was well supplied with pots and pans and sharpened knives along with Villery & Boch China. So the extra special touches made up for some of the less than pristine interior. Pool is great. Outdoor eating area wonderful (but could use updated and more substantial table and chairs) The plastic table and chairs were a big no-no for me.
Beds comfortable, Shower pressure good and all in all I would give it a solid 8 out fo 10. The master bedroom is great the rest of the bedrooms are adequate.

Owner's Response: Bonjour,
I would just like to comment on this very constructive review made by rental guests from New York:

1. The stray dog belonged to a neighbor and came for garbage early every the morning. The rental guests had left plastic garbage bags outside the kitchen door (a misunderstanding). I've later found out that the dog was unwell last summer and he's now dead.
2. There are two sets of keys for the house & gate. A third set can be provided if needed.
3. Some of the lounge furniture has been replaced.
4. The duct tape was put up by an architect to show the full scale of a vault that is going to be opened up between the kitchen and the sitting room. These works will be done next winter.
5. Outdoor tables and chairs, plus the sunbeds, have all been updated.

Welcome to Villa Bel Air!
