We had a wonderful stay at this lovely quaint property which is centrally located in an unspoilt Provencal village. The house is extremely well-equipped with everything you are likely to need. We very much enjoyed the pool and garden area, where sunbeds are provided for your use. The outside space for dinner was well used, and having two kitchens on the ground and middle floor is particularly useful, so you don't have to carry things up and down the stairs! There is a supermarket, a boulangerie and numerous restaurants all within a few minutes walk, so the location is ideal. The hosts are incredibly kind and generous - we regularly received a delivery of freshly laid eggs and homemade fruit jam. I would definitely recommend this property as a great base for your stay.
We are 4 active pensioners who enjoy visiting places of interest on holiday, and Flayosc proved to be a great location. Each day of our 2-week stay was hot and sunny, so we appreciated the patio doors in both kitchen and lounge during the day, and the air-conditioning at night. Our days began with a trip to the boulangerie in Flayosc, followed by a drive to a village, or place of historic or geological importance. We would return for a late lunch on the covered verandah, chill for an hour or so, before taking to the pool for a relaxing swim. Evening meals were prepared using the gas BBQ located just outside the kitchen.
Flayosc is just a 15 mins stroll, and we sampled 3 excellent restaurants in the evening, La Cigalon, La Fleur de Thym and Le Nid.
The market on Monday morning is worth a visit for fresh produce, but we mainly shopped at Carrefour in Draguignan which was a 15 mins drive.
The holiday would not be complete without a superb scenic drive along the Gorge du Verdon via Moustiers-Sainte-Marie, and a boat trip from Ste-Maxime to St-Tropez on Les Bateaux Verts. Why not take the 45 mins ride that visits the Bay of Canoubiers where the mega-rich reside.
In summary the villa provided everything we required, and Judith could not have been more helpful and welcoming. The only challenge we faced was from the mosquitos which took a particular liking to 2 of our party. As you would expect, there was a choice of repellents available.
In summary, we had a most enjoyable holiday and the villa rating is fully justified.
