Wonderful place to set out from
The property is just as beautiful and immaculate as pictured. Updated facilities fulfilled all of our needs with the exception of a traditional oven. Beds, pillows, seating were all comfortable, and the terrace...well, as other tenants have stated, was fantastic, especially the brick oven, perfect for barbequing, and made up for the absence of one inside.
The owner and property manager were extremely accommodating and helpful, eager to answer all our questions about the apartment as well as the surrounding area and all it has to offer. Flayosc has everything you'll need, just outside the door.
We were in the South of France for two weeks (one week in the west, one in the east), and the weather was amazing. A quick thunderstorm one day, and brief morning showers on another. Remaining days were filled with the bluest of skies, thin and/or puffy clouds (if any at all), and temps around 80 to 85 degrees, with a constant not-too-cool breeze. Perfect!
While we were there, our top adventures included La Napoule (about 35 minutes) where the beach was amazing. Right next to Cannes' busier beaches, La Napoule is found in between a small marina and wonderful castle, grand mountains in the distance. Cannes was our one bigger city visit, and since it's so large, we didn't feel crowded at all.
We also visited Gorge du Verdon, can't overstate how remarkable a site this is, you may just have to experience the trail of huge mountains and sheer drops for yourself.
Our favorite town was definitely Tourtour...what a great surprise. It has all the bells and whistles: high hilltown village, great shops, quaint narrow streets that wrap around in an inviting maze, doorsteps abound with flowers and cacti.
One of our last days was spent in Ventimiglia Italy, just over the border, about an hour and a half away. Friday's open air market was the largest we've ever experienced, great selection of food, clothing, jewelry, etc. Other local chic shops and wonderful restaurants made this a great spot.
This region of France was much busier than we'd anticipated, yet we were more than able to create a vacation that suited our quieter lifestyle. Flayosc was a comforting place to call home as we set out and returned each day.
