About Elaine

Having bought the villa unfurnished in 2007 I have spent the last eight years furnishing it when I could get over to France. The pool was built in 2008 and upgraded in 2015. The photos reflect the interior style I was trying to achieve and the garden and landscaping is maturing well. I think you will find the villa spacious, bright and modern with some Provencal touches.

Elaine purchased this villa in 2007

Why Elaine chose Fayence

The property is within easy reach of the Cote d'Azur yet quietly positioned in the Var countryside. Fayence village is perched on a hilltop, the villa is within 5 minutes of the hill base and looks towards the village. The area with its climate, wonderful nature, wonderful restaurants, festivals and sights together bring about a beautiful place to live and holiday. You can travel easily to nearby Saint Cassien lake with watersports, the Verdon Gorges, skiing at Greolieres les Neiges(50km), Europe's largest gliding centre (2 minutes) and numerous golf courses. The tennis club and outdoor municipal pool are within walking distance (2 minutes by car). It is just 15km to the A4 motorway, 26 km to beaches at Saint Raphael and Frejus,50km to Nice airport.

What makes this villa unique

The villa is built to the highest standards combining the convenience of a modern home with traditional Provencal style, weathered tile roof, shady terrace, upstairs outdoor terrace and terracotta colours. The living room and kitchen open onto the terrace and garden with the swimming pool and adjoining garden. The contemporary style of the furniture and furnishings are combined with Provencal touches which together create a comfortable, modern but Provencal style. All fittings throughout are modern and new. A wood burning stove is available for chilly nights off season. Guests will have the support of our friend who lives within 3 minutes for help and upkeep of the pool,villa and garden.

Great fortnight in Fayence

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely stay in Fayence. The house is beautifully decorated and the pool is simply amazing. We barely saw a cloud for the whole fortnight so we spent much of our time relaxing around the pool. Fayence itself is a beautiful village with classic French bars and interesting places to eat. The view from the 'Panorama' is worth the steep walk to the top of the village. We also went to the Lac de Cassien where it was great fun to hire a pedalo and go swimming on the lake. The only reason I haven't given 5 stars is that the kitchen was a little basic, but I would thoroughly recommend the house and the area.

Absolutely wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We had the most wonderful time at this beautiful villa. It is so lovely and we are really missing it! The layout is very comfortable and homely and the décor is beautifully done. The pool and garden are just a dream and we had such a great time here. Olivier was so lovely and welcoming and Des was such a help to us with arriving at the villa late - lights had even been left on for us when we arrived in the early hours of the morning.

We will definitely be returning to this villa and couldn't recommend it more highly.

Wonderful house!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the house - beautiful house and a wonderful pool. Great with bakery around the corner and short walk to the supermarket. Olivier was a great help - so nice! We recommend going to Lac de Cassian. We had a great time there with our kids - we would definitely come back to the house and the area again. And thanks to Drew for helpfull talks on the phone before we came.

Very comfortable house with excellent amenities

  • 5 of 5

The property was very clean and well maintained with a good amount of space for the 6 of us and excellent internet access. We found everything we needed though we would have liked an extra oven tray as one was not quite enough. Also one more portable air conditioner would have been great as it was extremely hot during our stay and even with the windows open there was not quite enough air flow. We left the one that was available in the hallway with all the bedroom doors open in the evening so we could sleep.

The location is great a very short distance to the supermarket, boulangerie, village of Fayence with the best ice cream seller around. The lake was also easy to get to and a wonderful place to spend a day either on the pedalos or the water park by the big bridge. The motorway and interior roads to get down to the coast were well indicated and easy to follow for trips to Accrobranche and Aqualand.

The house is in a very quiet location with good security and we really enjoyed the time we spent there.

I would definitely recommend this house and the owners who were very friendly and available.

Very pretty villa

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent a wonderful two weeks at this beautiful villa.It was very well appointed with everything we could have possibly needed during our stay, The villa had been decorated to a very high standard and the garden and pool area were delightful. It is set in a very quiet area, in a gated community which made it feel very secure. We were six adults but the villa still felt very spacious and airy. The beds were so comfortable, especially the super king size! The area is so varied with something for all the family, including lakes, sea, beautiful villages and some amazing mountain roads. You can also hire bikes locally in Montauroux. We would definitely recommend this pretty villa to others.
