Delightful property with some issues

  • 4 out of 5
This is a delightful property with glorious views and plenty of space for a large group but has some issues to address.
Pros:
*stunning views;
*large heated pool;
*private spaces for peace and quiet;
*huge master suite with private spacious deck;
*air con to all rooms;
*plenty of outdoor seating;
*spacious grounds for wandering;
*great village within 30 minute walk; Flayosc has cafes and restaurants galore and is very much a working French village, not a tourist trap;
*excellent accommodation for ten, but, no more than ten.

Cons:
*both Owners Direct and the villa's own site list sleeps 13 however those who end up on the sofa bed or rollaway are not well served with two of our guests suffering back aches after a couple of nights;
*pricing structure is ridiculous. You could potentially be asked to pay an extra 300euro per person per week for any more than ten people even if those extra people are young children. Check this with owner before booking;
* some of the infrastructure is aging. Using the oven caused partial blackouts on two occasions. The second dishwasher (necessary for 13) did not work. The main shower in the master ensuite did not work and the ensuite auxiliary shower is simply awful. Water dripping from the pool deck onto electrical connections caused a power failure. The sun umbrellas around the pool cannot cope with more than a light breeze and one nearly speared a child as it collapsed. The pool steps are not fixed in position and their movement almost caused an injury.
* The caretaker tries to be helpful and did make some excellent suggestions for touring however has a disturbing habit of turning up at the glass back door unannounced and uninvited. This detracts from the desired peace and privacy and is an unnecessary intrusion and irritation.
* Audio visual equipment is not up to the standard expected at this price.

We had a wonderful stay.

  • 5 out of 5
The villa is extremely comfortable – it is light and bright, spacious and peaceful. The bedrooms are very comfortable and the kitchen and laundry work well. The views are spectacular and the outside space including terraces, a selection of dining areas and the heated pool add variety to every day. Combined with being in such an interesting area it is a villa we hope to return to and would definitely recommend to our friends.

location is amazing with view over the valley

  • 4 out of 5
We wanted to say thank you for a wonderful hoilday at the villa. We all really enjoyed the week there, and the villa was ideal for our holiday. The location is amazing, with the evening-view over the valley and the nighttime silence being two of the things that will be forever in my memory. The only issue was that we could have done with a second week there!

Idyllic location

  • 5 out of 5
From the moment we arrived at the villa, we knew we had made the right choice. The electric shutters were lifted on the many patio doors in the living area and the magnificent views were breathtaking.

Although the area has so much to offer, we struggled to leave this beautiful villa and even cooked our own dinner each night to relax with a glass of wine and watch the sun go down.

The outside terraces are extensive and the new swimming pool is stunning.

The villa is well equipped with everything needed and even has British 3 pin sockets! The kitchen is modern and open-plan onto the extensive living area. A welcome pack of essentials (including wine!) is provided on your arrival.

The villa is well managed by a lovely local couple, who greet you on arrival and show you how everything works i.e. electric pool cover, shutters etc. They are happy to assist with any problems during your stay.

Thank you for a fabulous week - we hope to return.

9km. from the provencal town of Lorgues is the village of Flayosc. This is described as the ‘Première Porte du Haut-Var’. It is a typically Provençal ‘perched village’ about 370 metres above sea level with fountains, shady narrow twisting streets and a lovely 11th Century church with forged iron bell-tower. Unlike many other Provençal villages, Flayosc is vibrant all year round although particularly so in the summer when there is live music and the bars and restaurants spill out onto the streets.

Other Activities: Beaches and feshwater boating & water skiing are 40Km. away.

Golf: Golf

There are golf courses at St. Endreol next to the village at La Motte about 20 minutes away and at Golf Roquebrune (a challenging course) which is ten minutes further on. There are two courses in St. Maxime area - Beauvallon Golf club and Sainte-Maxime golf course. At St. Raphael there is a family golf club.
