About the property

3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 6 with private fenced pool

The property is south-west-facing and 120m2 in size. It is situated in grounds of 1600m2 containing a beautiful old olive grove and its own private fenced pool

There are three bedrooms and two bath/shower rooms sleeping 6, a perfect holiday house for a family.

Coste is in walking distance of restaurants and shops as well as the local market yet benefits from being in a very quiet private area.

The house was built on two levels with a large living/dining area and open kitchen on the ground floor. There are French doors from the dining area that open onto a lovely terrace toward the back of the house below the pool area. From the living area the French doors open to a covered terrace, which gives nice shade for the hot afternoons.

In front of the house there is a large terrace benefiting from all day sun so you can enjoy that morning coffee al fresco or take in the magnificent sunsets over your evening aperitif.

The second floor offers three bedrooms; two doubles with king size beds and one double with twin beds. There is a bathroom with shower and a bathtub on this floor and the second shower room is on the ground level.A/C in bedrooms.

Location : Villa la Coste lies within 10 minutes drive of freshwater lake St Cassien and overlooks the upmarket village of Fayence. Located less than 15 minutes from Autoroute A8 Exit 39, it is ideally placed for trips to both Provence and the Luberon to the west and Cannes and Monaco on the French Riviera to the east. Nearby there are a large number of restaurants, some with Michelin stars, as well as a number of supermarkets. A championship golf-course, Terre Blanche, is 10 minutes drive away. All the other major French Riviera attractions are within 30-45 minutes drive.

Fayence has a typical open market three times a week. This is where the local meet and shop their vegetables and meats from the local farmers. The market also offers other typical Provencal products and gift items.

Activities : There is much to do in the area from swimming and boating in the fresh water lake Lac St. Cassian, trail riding, wind surfing and gliding from Europe's largest airfield in Tourrettes by Fayence.

The area is fantastic for walking and close by you can visit the beautiful Gorge du Verdon the largest gorge in Europe.

You can visit the local vineyards and make a trip to an oliveoil mill in Callas and taste the price winning oil.

The Mediterranean is not far away with places like Cannes, St. Tropez and their fantastic beaches.

For music lovers, there are plenty of summer concerts with jazz in the open air in Bargemon and in nearby villages of Seillans and Montferrat; chamber music and recitals in nearby churches: Mass with Gregorian plainsong on Sunday mornings at the Abbey de Thoronet; opera in Aix-en Provence, Orange and Nice.

Golf : If you are interested in golf there are plenty of possibilities within an hours drive but the closest is the famous Terre Blance golf in Tourrettes by Fayence, which offers two 18 hole courses. This is a five star establishment.

A fantastic villa in a stunning location

  • 4 of 5

Having stayed in many similar properties in Southern France this one was near perfect. The location and views are genuinely stunning and being able to stroll the short distance into Fayence with numerous bars and restaurants was ideal. A very good pool in a lovely secluded area at the back might benefit from a bit more shade. The house is furnished and equipped to a high standard throughout. The bedrooms are not huge. Overall we had a great stay.

Everything we could have wanted....

  • 5 of 5

A really lovely villa with all the facilities one could wish for and lots of space for the extended family. It was peaceful but not isolated-although very hard to find in the dark! Slightly inclement weather meant we couldn't get full use of the pool (wish it had been heated) but it and the area around it were both lovely, and the loungers etc were great. The numerous terraces around the house were a real bonus and gave the property a very special feel. Internally, the space was great and the furnishings were tasteful and clean; we could have wished for a couple more comfortable chairs or sofas inside for everyone to be able to relax in on the chilly evenings though. The villa was spotlessly clean and there was evidence of a real attention to detail-having cooking oils,herbs,sauces etc was a bonus as it always seems a waste to have to buy such things and for them to be thrown away at the end of the stay. Fayence itself is a gem of a town, with numerous good reataurants, bakery, supermarket etc all within a five minute walk. We hired a car and explored further afield but driving on the endlessly winding mountain roads to various pretty villages is not for those who suffer travel sickness! La Coste is highly recommended by our family-there's nothing not to like! Thank you Ian and Christine for helping to make our stay so enjoyable.

Home from home with great view

  • 5 of 5

It was clean and comfortable and the seating areas outside where perfect and the view from the front terrace was amazing whilst relaxing on the large comfy seats. The pool is huge and inviting. Being so close to the stunning village of Fayence is a big bonus. Loved it. Will be returning to Fayence again soon I hope.

Fayence is one of five perched villages in the Canton de Fayence. Each of these is worth a visit with their old cobblestone narrow streets, their fantastic views over the valley and toward the mountains.

The area offers something for everybody from mountaineering, to white water rafting in the Gorge du Verdon, canoeing or paddle boating on the lake St. Cassian, golf on the Terrace Blance in Tourrettes or even visits to the nearby beaches of Cannes and Frejus.

Enjoy the good restaurants; visit the local wine yards, shop at the local vegetable markets. The area offers restaurants from the simple local food to two star Michelin restaurants.

If you enjoy music the villages offer music festivals over the summer months everything from opera to jazz.

Finally we are so close to places like St. Tropez, Monaco and Antibes places that are all worth a visit.
