Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday villa in Fayence - Les Cerises
3 available Bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 6.
A detached Provencal villa of 130sq m, set in a garden of 800sq m with views of the surrounding rugged hills and the valley below. Les Cerises is 10 minutes' walk from the centre of Fayence, along a pretty lane of detached villas. It looks and feels like open country round about but there are a surprising number of houses tucked away and hidden by large gardens and hedges. Large gates open onto the front of the house with parking for up to 3 cars and the front door opens onto a spacious atrium style 'sejour' or living room, off which is the master bedroom and ensuite bathroom and the kitchen, pantry and 'cave'. French windows lead out to the terrace, the deck and the pool, all of which are surrounded by olive trees and other native flora in the garden. Upstairs there are 2 available bedrooms, a shower room and separate toilet. In the 'cave' by the front door, there is garden furniture, 4 bikes and garden games. All in all, the house has everything one might need.
Fayence: With a population of around 4500, Fayence is big enough to have quite a few decent shops, restaurants and bars but manages to avoid the rather more frantic happenings down on the coast. It's more relaxed, friendlier and more authentically French. There's a Provencal market 3 days a week, local vineyards offering visits and tastings, regular concerts in the new exhibition hall or in the open air, and lots of nearby galleries, potteries and antique shops. In the valley below, the gliding centre is supposed to be the best in Europe and a good place for a drink or a meal. Even a trial flight. For the golfers the new Terre Blanche course across the valley aims to be one of the best in France and there are other courses nearby at Mandelieu and Cannes. Horse riding is available locally and there are tennis courts at the bottom of the hill for the really energetic. To find out more about the town, please ask us for web site link.
