Perfect holiday!

  • 5 of 5

This comfortable, clean, homely villa is in a wonderful location, an hour or so's drive from Nice and 10 mins walk to the village of Flayosc and its shops, market, restaurants and cafes. It is located in a really peaceful lane and has stunning views to the far distance from the patio and garden. The villa itself had everything we needed, except for air-con in two of the bedrooms. The outside area was excellent - the pool was large, clean and ideal for us and 3 young adults to relax and play in. The garden area was big enough for games of badminton and provided welcome shade from the sun. Bikes hired nearby enabled the cyclists to enjoy the stunning countryside around and we didn't have to go far to have a long morning's kayaking trip and an evening on a boat on the lake. Trevor was easy to contact and very helpful throughout. We would highly recommend the villa and host and would be very interested in re-booking for a future holiday.

Good, well laid out, and a comfortable base

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay here. As Trevor warned, there's always a few things to be fixed, but everything worked well enough. We never saw the gate close itself automatically, so we just manually shut it when we weren't going out for the day.

The villa was clean, comfortable, and had everything you need, and the pool and gardens were lovely. Everyone was on hand and available if we needed it, though we really didn't have anything needing doing.

Trevor's notes are very helpful, and cover almost everything you need to know - wish other villas did this. We found the front door quite stiff, but tended to use the exit from the utility room anyway.

The only thing that could have been better was meeting Florence during the stay, as she could have saved us time pointing out things, Trevor's notes made it easy enough though. She couldn't make it when we arrived, and we did waste a few minutes when we first arrived, the house was locked up, and I hadn't seen a note come through on my phone telling me where the key was, until I got it out to phone her.

Other than that, one of the most relaxing holidays we've had. Flayosc is pleasant and walkable, Draguigan and its supermarkets, restaurants close too, though they were still digging it up when we were there.. If you like markets though, you can't beat the one in Lorgues.

Our satnav sent us through some tiny lanes on the way there from Nice, which was OK once we got used to driving in France again, but Trevor's suggested route is much more sensible after a long day's travel, so I recommend using that to anyone getting used to their hire car.

Would definitely book again, when we decide to go back to the region.

A comfortable house with lovely garden and view, and wonderful pool.

  • 4 of 5

We liked the characterful house very much, and loved the secluded garden with its beautiful views, but the glorious pool was really wonderful in the hot days of August. We enjoyed a very relaxing holiday, reading in the shade of the trees around the garden, eating on the terrace and visiting some of the nearby villages; a trip to Grimaud and Port Grimaud was also great fun. Air conditioning in the sitting room and one of the bedrooms was a great blessing as the temperatures soared. Those of us staying in the smaller bedrooms struggled a bit; they were hot despite the fans. At first we found the house a bit old-fashioned, but as time went on we grew to appreciate the traditional look and decor. We would have liked to meet Florence to clear up one or two questions, but we managed in the end. I would definitely recommend this lovely holiday house with its garden and pool, especially to those who look for something comfortable and homely rather than sleek and modern.

Small suggestions: a visitors' book where people can make their recommendations re: places of interest, restaurants etc, could be helpful; fresh sponges and a few rubbish sacks in the kitchen would also have been great - it took us half the week to locate the kitchen bin!

We did appreciate Trevor's cheery comments and comprehensive instructions.

Great holiday

  • 4 of 5

Charming House in excellent location. Great pool where we spent a lot of time cooling off. Spent majority of time in the outside space which was secluded and peaceful. House had everything we required for a comfortable stay and we would hope to return one day.

Gorgeous and peaceful setting with lovely views.

  • 5 of 5

The villa was old but with lots of character. The pool was a great size and the garden space was perfect for us. Our young son had plenty of space to play football and run around which was part of the reason we also chose this particular villa as the outdoor space and pool were perfect for us. It would be nice if all the rooms had aircon or at least ceiling fans as good as the one in the main bedroom but this wouldn't put us off staying here again. The location was perfect and the town of Flayosc itself was absolutely lovely with shops and restaurants to choose from and only a 10 minute walk. We would definitely return here again.

beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

This has been a wonderful holiday. The villa was easy to find and in a great location, easily walkable into Flayosc. We were a family of 6 including grandparents and 2 young children.

The villa does not have air conditioning throughout however this is not a problem as the house is shaded and ceiling and stand alone fans are provided. The pool is a good size with steps and the gardens well kept. We ate out every night in Flayosc and Draguignan and found the locals extremely friendly and welcoming. The villa itself was in good condition with the traditional kitchen, plus washing machine and dryer in the utility room. It had Apple TV and Bose and Sonos however we used our own tablets and bluetooth speaker (I couldn't get the Sonos or Bose to work but that's probably down to me!).

Trevor replied promptly to all my requests and queries and we all would love to return next year if our leave fits!!!!

Thanks again Trevor.
