|Minimum Stay||6 - 7 nights|
This beautiful villa is set on the outskirts of Flayosc in a tranquil position. It has been furnished to a very high specification and is surrounded by exquisitely maintained gardens with views over the surrounding countryside. The owners have travelled widely in Africa and Asia and the house is full of fascinating artefacts. Light and welcoming, this villa offers the opportunity for a truly luxurious holiday. The rooms are spacious, light and airy and all have views over the garden. Set in the countryside the property is only a 20 minute walk to the village. The walk is delightful following the irrigation canal all of the way without the need to walk along a road!
We had 2 lovely weeks at Mas de Fin. As per the description it is very distinct with lots of personal possessions of the owners which was lovely. The real benefit of staying in someones "home" is that they had thought about things that would make it better to live in - for example a roll down awning and light curtains to shield the kitchen and eating area in the heat of the day made a huge difference. The pool and garden area was very beautiful with a lovely view . The only negatives were that the kitchen lacked work space when cooking for 8, although the outside kitchen with BBQ was very nice and helps a lot. Beds were all very comfortable - loved the view from the main bedroom out through the French doors. Would also have been useful to have seen a floor plan in the marketing materials as we really didn't have any idea on the size and layout of the property before we went, Thank you very much.
We have just returned from a delightful week at this lovely peaceful property.
Things we liked: Very comprehensive driving directions to the property.
Clean villa , well maintained.
Extremely comfortable beds.
Walking distance from lively village with wide selection of excellent restaurants and bakeries.
Beautiful gardens, pool and covered terraces.
Close to lovely Lac de St Croix
Plenty of storage space and coat hangers
Really appreciated the complimentary bottle of wine- thank you
Things that could be improved: Pool very cold. We had to turn the pool heating up.
Extortionate final cleaning charge in our opinion.
Living room area uncomfortable- not really a problem for us but might have been had the weather been inclement.
All in all we had a lovely holiday and would not hesitate in returning. Thank you.
The Riviera is only a short drive away - Ste 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 Ste 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!
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 20 minutes by foot so visitors may be self sufficient without transport. There is a taxi company based in the village.
The delightful village of Tourtour is 13 km drive. Les Arcs with its lovely medieval quarter is 15 km. The fantastic Gorge du Verdon is less than one hour away. Avignon and its famous bridge is a 2 hour drive and Aix en Provence only 90 minutes. There is too much to see and too many places to visit in this beautiful area. And there's a Provençal market somewhere every day of the week.
The village is well equipped with 2 small supermarkets, butcher, 2 delicatessens,2 bakers, chemist, 3 doctors, a dentist, bank, post office, gift shops, 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 km away and has large supermarkets and a variety of shops. Provençal markets are held in the local villages every day of the week: Monday Flayosc, Tueday Lorgues, Wednesday Draguignan, Thursday Bargemom, Friday Le Luc en Provence, Saturday Aups and Draguignan, Sunday Le Muy, 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.
