Overview

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday villa in Flayosc - Villa Bel Air

4 double bedrooms with ensuite bath/shower rooms, sleeps maximum 8

A charming Provencal villa of very high standards, within walking distance to the village (less than 500 m). The villa has 4 spacious bedrooms, all with beautifully tiled ensuite bath/shower rooms (all with WC's and one bidet) and with their own exit doors to the garden. Each bedroom is equipped with an air condition system.

Large sitting room with dining area and mezzanine, and a well-equipped kitchen. All floors are covered with ancient Provencal tiles giving the villa a rustic atmosphere.

South covered facing terrace with a magnificent view of the perched village of Flayosc with its fortified bell tower (11th century).

Set in 7500 m2 with many pine, oak and an olive grove.

There is a private swimming pool (4 x 8m) and a pool shower in front of the house. The pool area is completely fenced in. There is a newly built car port for one car.

The village: Flayosc is the perfect location to relax and enjoy the beauty of Provence, only 40 minutes away from the busy tourist spots of the coast. The village offers excellent shops for food, a weekly market (Mondays), pharmacy, bank, several bars and restaurants, laundry/dry-cleaner and wine co-operative. It also has a tourist office offering excellent information about the area.

History: Flayosc was a Roman settlement with a Roman road passing nearby. The village was defended by its circular wall of houses, much still visible today. In the wall you'll find three sarrazines doors and there are several ancient fountains.

In the centre of the village stands the large St. Laurent church, which dates back to the 11th century, with its fortified and decorated bell tower.

The area: Flayosc is situated only 40 minutes away from the sandy beaches of the St. Tropez bay and the dramatic scenery of Gorges de Verdon, the Grand Canyon of Europe.

Perched medieval villages, olive mills, daily markets, wine tasting and first class gourmet restaurants.

There are 15 challenging golf courses within an hour's drive.

Guestbook comments from the manager

After many hours of internet search we finally got sight of Bel Air. The choice showed to be very successful - the place fulfilled all our expectations plus much more. Fabulous location, quality of house and garden and unlimited possibilities of privacy. The village has charm and anything that cold-blooded Nordics might expect to experience without too much effort. Bel Air is a place the owners can be very proud of. / Elise and Leif-Erik and family, 9-16 July 2005.



After travelling through France for a week we arrived at this beautiful villa with its breathtaking views. Both our families have had a wonderful time at your lovely home in Provence. We will never forget this holiday and hope one day to return. / Sue & John, Tony & Hilary with families, 24 - 31 July 2005.

Wunderschöne Villa

  • 5 out of 5
Wir verbrachten einen wunderschönen Urlaub in dieser autentischen provencialischen Villa. Die Einrichtung entsprach den Fotos. Das obere Schlafzimmer hat eine kleine Terrasse mit Blick auf Flayosc. Sehr schön! Die anderen Schlafzimmer haben Zugang zum Gartenbereich, die Terrasse vor der Küche hat eine tolle Sitzgelegenheit . Das Poolwasser hatte einen Temperatur von ca 26 Grad.
Der Ort ist zu Fuß leicht zu erreichen und bietet Lokale, Geschäfte und einen kleinen Markt. Auto ist für Ausflüge nötig.
Die Mietabwicklung war einfach und unkompliziert und der Mailkontakt sehr freundlich.
Wir würden hier sofort wieder Urlaub machen!

Fantastic Villa and Pool with lovely views

  • 5 out of 5
We have just returned from 2 lovely weeks at Villa Bel Air. It exceeded our expectations. This is our 9th visit to Provence and I think Villa Bel Air was one of the best villas we have stayed in. The Villa was lovely and rustic, quiet and not overlooked. The pool was great and very clean throughout our stay. The poolside area was excellent. We spent lots of time in the pool. The weather was sunny and in the 30's nearly all the time. The view from the terrace of Flaysoc was lovely to sit and look at during the day and in the evenings. The Villa was well looked after and had everything we needed. The wifi was very reliable. We had absolutely no complaints and would thoroughly recommend this Villa to others and hope that we will return to it ourselves one day. Thank you so much for such a relaxing holiday

Fantastic Location and wonderful accomodation

  • 5 out of 5
Our group of 7 wonen ages 60-75 found Villa BelAir when searching the internet for villas in Provence. We could not have been more delighted as "what we saw was what we got." We have now done 7 holidays overt the last 15 years in the Loire Valley, Tuscany, Catalonia, Porto and now Provence with a similar mode of operation. We rent a villa to use as a base for our regional travels and make day trips from the villa over the week's rental. Bel Air is in a lovely setting with a gorgeous view of Flayosc. The bedrooms were large and the communal spaces fine for our large group. The furnishings were comfortable though not luxurious, and there were plenty of books and maps around for use. The property is gated and we felt very secure. We mostly ate breakfasts and more than half of our dinners at the villa. The lovely June weather allowed us to always eat outside on a terrace with a large table that easily held us all and we were able to see Flayosc in the distance. We had some difficulty with the TV reception but this was fixed once we realized the cable wire wasn't connected to the cable box. In addition, we had a problem with our door knob but this was quickly resolved with a phone call to the manager, whose husband was able to fix it without any cramp in our schedule. Our location was very close to many picturesque towns including TourTour and Villacruze and within 90 minutes of the Grand Canyon of Verdun and the beaches of the Mediteranean. The bathrooms except for the master, were rather small but plentiful. There was no available hair dryer that we could find and I would suggest that it would be good to provide several if possible. The pool was large and beautiful and swimmable in early June. The caretaker did not speak English, but the manager was available for questions as well. We were very well pleased with our trip and it was enhanced by the wonderful villa we stayed at.

Owner's Response: I've been the manager of this villa for almost 10 years and I dare to say that all rental guests have had a very good time at VIlla Bel Air.
As to the hair dryer; the owner left it in the Master bathroom but unfortunately the cleaning lady thought it was private and put it away.
As from today the hair dryer is back in this bathroom for the rental guests to use.
Welcome to Villa Bel Air - a 4 bedroom villa all witg en suite bath/shower rooms; for a large family or a group of friends.

Autumn in Provence

  • 5 out of 5
Our family had a wonderful time staying here. The house is large and well laid out so that even with a big group or children there was space for all. The kitchen is well equipped. We would often visit all the nearby markets and come home and sample them all. There are lots of activities within an hour's drive for the kids and lots of wineries for the adults to explore within 15 minutes! Flayosc is well situated between the mountains and the coast. The autumn colors were beautiful -- a little too cool for us to enjoy the pool this time -- but we will be back.

Ideal villa for two or more couples

  • 4 out of 5
We stayed at Villa Bel Air with three other couples in late summer. The location is perfect for visiting this part of Provence and nearby Flayosc has good restaurants and bars for a village of its size. There is an excellent Carrefour supermarket about 10 minutes drive away on the outskirts of Draguignan. Flayosc is a 15 minute up-hill walk from the villa, part of which is along a fairly busy road with no footpath. Villa Bel Air is on high ground opposite Flayosc and therefore benefits from a fine view of the village and hills to the south.

The villa is furnished and equipped in fairly basic and typical fashion so could disappoint those expecting 'luxury' accommodation. However, the price fairly reflects this. It has four double/twin rooms each with en-suite and air-conditioning, which is a particular advantage when the party consists of two or more couples. The kitchen contained sufficient crockery, utensils etc. for eight adults. The outside terrace is pleasant and has a shaded area ideal for dining. Thanks to excellent weather during our stay, we did not need to make much use of the large lounge. Wireless access to the internet worked well.

The pool is very well kept and regularly maintained and all the staff who look after the property are helpful and friendly.

There is more than enough car-parking within the grounds of the villa. The directions we were given to the villa were good and you are well advised to follow them rather than rely entirely on sat-nav, as it is best approached from Flayosc rather than from Draguignan in order to avoid difficult turns.

In summary Villa Bel Air entirely suited our holiday requirements and we would recommend it.
