Wonderful villa!

5 of 5
We have rented many properties in France over the years and this is one of the very best. The house is comfortable, stylish and equipped with everything you could possibly need. The kitchen and bathrooms are modern and high-spec and, for a family of 4, it was indulgently spacious. Wifi worked well throughout the house and grounds. We generally enjoyed breakfast on the balcony and lunches in the dining area adjacent to the outdoor kitchen. We also had a couple of bbqs here. The garden is extensive and, whilst the property is not isolated, it is not overlooked at all. The pool area is really lovely. It is lined with lavender bushes and has olive trees at one end for shade. The views towards the hilltop village of Seillans are stunning. The communication with the owner was good and we received a warm welcome from Karen. If you choose to stay here, you won't be disappointed!

Brilliant accomodation a stones throw from the Verdon Gorge.

5 of 5
Thomas is very helpful and a pleasant guy. The accommodation retains its old character with a modern touch. Has all that you could ask for in an apartment in a beautiful sleepy village location. Made a great base for us to access the gorge for climbing, running and hiking.

Clean and comfortable

5 of 5
We spent 2 weeks in this apartment in Fayence. It is in an excellent location within easy walking distance of several excellent restaurants. The terrace is large with superb views. The apartment was spotlessly clean and well equipped. The owner was very pleasant and helpful. We would like to return to explore this beautiful area further.
