About Caroline Mofid

We fell in love with Flayosc and the surrounding area several years ago. It is so relaxing and beautiful. We have spent many wonderful holidays in the village with our family. We find the locals friendly and welcoming. We feel so at home here we decided to get married here and now spend our holidays with our twin boys here every year. The boys are well known to the local villagers who spoil them at every opportunity!

We really hope enjoy your holiday in this lovely village.

Caroline Mofid purchased this villa in 2012

Why Caroline Mofid chose Flayosc

The Villa is a haven from the hustle and bustle of life. The arrangement of the vila easily accommodates 2 families or extended families, but also ensures privacy.

Coast/Beach:

The Riviera is only a short drive away - St Maxime, St Raphael, Cannes, Antibes amongst many other Mediterranean towns and villages. Of course St Tropez is also easily accessible - but remember to take a water taxi from St Maxime in the summer months to avoid the traffic jams to this popular resort situated on a peninsula! Don't forget that there are also beaches at Lac St Croix which are much quieter and just as good if not quite as glamorous as the Côte d'Azur!

Travel:

The villa is easily accessed by air (Nice 90 kms, Toulon 79 kms and also Marseille), TGV train (Les Arcs-Draguignan - 15kms) and by road (Junction 36 at Le Muy, A8). Car hire is advisable if you wish to take advantage of all of the wonderful villages, the Gorge du Verdon and the coast. However, the village with a huge variety of shops and services is only 15 minutes by foot so visitors may be self sufficient without transport.

Distances:

Flayosc is well situated with ready access to surrounding villages Lorgues, Salernes and Toutour. The local town of Draguignan is only 8 kms away. The coast is easily accessible with St Maxime only 45 minutes by car and a short ferry crossing from here leads you to St Tropez.

Further Details:

The village is well equipped with 2 small supermarkets (1 of which is also open Sundays and has a butcher counter), delicatessen, 2 bakers, chemist, 3 doctors, a dentist, bank, post office, an electric bike hire shop, 4 bars 3 of which serve food and (at last count) 8 restaurants! A famous truffle restaurant is to be found in a nearby village only 15 minutes' drive away. The local town of Draguignan is only 8 kms away and has large supermarkets and a variety of shops. Provençal markets are held in the local villages almost every day of the week: Monday Flayosc, Tueday Lorgues, Wednesday Draguignan, Thursday Bargemom, Friday Le Luc en Provence, Saturday Aups and Draguignan amongst many others. Flayosc is ideally situated half way between the spectacular Gorge du Verdon and the sophisticated Mediterranean coast. From here you can easily visit Monaco, Nice, Cannes, Antibes, St Tropez, Marseille and the wonderful cities of Aix-en-Provence, Avignon and Orange are accessible too.

Amazing setting

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for letting us stay in your lovely villa. We especially enjoyed the swimming pool and pretty garden areas - with a big thumbs up from our 3,5 and 11 year old for the trampoline too! We spent most of our days lazing by the peaceful pool surrounded by the spectacular views. Hope to return one day 😊

A large villa in a beautiful area

  • 4 of 5

This is a large villa with a lovely swimming pool which was cleaned every Friday. Sadly it was too far for us to walk into the village but only 5 minutes in the car. The village is a social gathering place and we were made very welcome often stopping for a drink after a day out. The villa is ideally situated as there is plenty to do in the area.

The beds were comfortable and the linen was clean. More bowls in the kitchen would be good as we kept having to wash them up and there were only 5 of us! Also the bedrooms would benefit from air conditioning.

Thank you Caroline for regularly keeping in touch with us and answering our questions.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review Wendy. We are glad you enjoyed your holiday and enjoyed staying in our home. As you say the village is really friendly and welcoming. We love going there and we have always walked into the village. The children who are now 4 years old love the walk and I also used to push them in the double buggy when they were babies. I would agree it is not suitable for someone following recent surgery. I am disappointed you struggled with the bowls as we stock the house for over 10 people and there is easily more than one item per head. I think you must have found the spare odd bowls we leave for kids as the adult bowls are part of the dinner set for 12. Its a shame you did nt mention it to myself or Jann during your stay as we could have pointed you in the right direction! You were really lucky to have had heat wave conditions in June! We have air conditioning in the one room with the single long window. We have considered it in the other bedrooms, but they all have double french windows, which would need to be kept closed. We tend to find the french system of closing the shutters during the day and opening everything in the evening works pretty well. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to welcoming you back in the future. Caroline and Amir

Great place in a great location

  • 5 of 5

The property was great and even exceeded our expectations!

Really with all we needed and in particular we enjoyed the great covered terrace and the pool 3 meters from this.

The area was nice and in walking distance to the little nice village Flayosc.

Also we found the former track from Train des Pignes very close by and with a great walk to Lorgues.

A lovely Villa in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We were 4 adults and 4 children that stayed here for two weeks in July / August 2015.

The house itself is great and really well setup with lots to do. We spent nearly all of our time in the outdoor kitchen which has everything you need including large table, built in BBQ and small sink. In addition it is about 2 metres from the pool so ideal to sit there and keep an eye on the older children swimming.

Flayosc is a lovely village and has almost everything you need including bakers, restaurants, and small grocery stores. Anything else is in the nearby town (10 min drive) of Draguignan. In addition you can easily drive from here to places like Monaco, Nice, Cannes, St Tropez, and Grasse, and there is a lovely waterfall and restaurants at the nearby Villecroz.

The team who manage the property and the owner are very responsive to any questions.

One minor recommendation I would make is for the owners to add air conditioning to the bedrooms (one has it already), allowing increased flexibility in where the children can sleep.

Villa Aramesh

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our extended family of children and grandparents. The grandparents particularly appreciated the studio with its own bathroom.

The house managed to provide us all with privacy and yet keep us all together at the same time.

The pool was a big hit wit the children.

As was the pretty garden, with boules court, table tennis table and trampoline!

All this within walking distance of the village with its many cafes and restaurants.

A perfect holiday!

Villa Aramesh

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Villa Aramesh for 2 weeks in september last year, with our children. The children had lots of fun and did nt want to leave the pool!

The house was really clean and beautiful. The scenery was from your dreams!

The view was really fantastic, you can see the mountains from the house!

We felt totally at ease and relaxed.

We would love to come back again!
