Overview

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday villa in Esterel - Fayence - Logis du Puy

4 bedrooms 1 bath and 3 shower rooms private heated pool

Set in an idyllic south-facing position, Logis du Puy is a beautiful Provencal property with separate cottage and heated swimming pool, nestling amid the hillside village of Fayence which is a 3 minute walk.

House & Grounds: The Logis du Puy is set within 3/4 of an acre of beautiful grounds with olive and fruit trees, and many ornamental shrubs and flowers. there is a path from the house that takes you to Fayence or Tourrettes village in 3mins.

Both the main house and nearby cottage 10 metres away have benefited from extensive recent renovation to an extremely high standard, and offer truly comfortable accommodation for 8 to 10 people.

Swimming Pool area: The swimming pool, which is Solar and Heat Pump heated out of season, is surrounded by an extensive elevated decking area. The pool and adjacent sunbathing patio are not overlooked and provide total privacy, whilst the house and terraced gardens offer panoramic views over the surrounding countryside.

In 2009 the Sunset BAR was added at the far end of the swimming pool decking nestled between the cliff and a 300 year old Olive tree, fully equipped with fridge wine racks lighting and several stools, aptly named for the great sunsets.

BBQ area: A stunning feature of the Logis is the summer dining area, adjoining the house. Offering seating for 12 people around a hand-crafted Bourgogne stone table, and shaded by a 40-foot palm tree, a BBQ here is a fantastic way to relax in the glorious countryside.

This area also boasts a delightful covered seating area, for intimate evenings together, whatever the time of year.

About Jez or Pam Barkley

We came to Fayence on holiday and left owning this very very special property, we think we are the luckiest people in the world and I think by the reviews our guest's have written they think the same.

Jez or Pam Barkley purchased this villa in 2001

Why Jez or Pam Barkley chose Esterel - Fayence

We saw Logis du Puy and it was instantly love at first site, luckily we were the 3rd people to view the property and within a week we had bought it, checkout the reviews for everyone else's thoughts.

Old Stone Provence Character nestled in the hillside facing south with uninterrupted views across the valley to the Esterral Mountains, that and sitting by the pool watching the odd white cloud go by, what else could you want??? maybe that the property is very private but only a 3 minute walk to the Village via a private path, no need for a car although there is ample parking..

What makes this villa unique

The property is very private not overlooked but only a 3 minute walk to the Village of Fayence and Tourrettes via a private path.The hilltop villages in this area are some of the most beautiful in Europe all with their own special character, Fayence dates back to the 12 century and is the king of them all.

Stunning Provence Villa

  • 5 of 5

I booked Logis du Puy for my 60th Birthday. We were a party of 8 (4 couples) and wanted somewhere to celebrate, visit the area but also relax. The villa is secluded with enviable views, great accommodation (the kitchen has every thing you need and more!) The pool and outside areas were a main attraction for us all, a great place to relax, enjoy a drink and watch the gliders overhead all in complete privacy.

We had intended to eat out in the village most evenings but could not drag ourselves away from dining outside under the magnificent palm tree, with the men cooking of course!!

The 3 minute walk to the village made ease of the early morning croissant run. The villa is well positioned - we visited Nice, Monaco, Antibes and St Tropez all within easy reach. The Gorges du Verdon is not to be missed - but next time will make the circular trip anti-clockwise! The Tortoise village is a must to visit if you own and love them as I do.

Pam was at the villa to welcome us on our arrival and always a call away with help and information if needed.

We would not hesitate to book again (and hopefully meet Jez next time) and definitely recommend the property to all, old or young. It was the ideal choice to celebrate my Birthday, and we all returned home with great memories and a love of Provence and Logis du Puy.

Wonderful Cote D'Azure Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We were very fortunate to spend 10 nights at this house in Fayence.

Accomodation for six adults was very comfortable between the main house and adjoining cottage. The house and cottage were very tidy and facilities were excellent to enable self catering and cooking in the house and the outdoor BBQ area.

The location was excellent with the main village only a 5 minute walk with plenty of restaurants accessible. We also enjoyed the local markets that were held 3 times per week with fresh local produce such as meat, fruit, cheese as well as clothing items available.

Having a rental car we also enjoyed the location of the house that enabled us to complete several day trips to St Tropez, Monoco, Cannes and Saint Paul De Vence. Local wineries were also easily accessible by car which were very enjoyable.

We also particularly enjoyed the peace and quiet of the house and the outlook across the countryside was a treat each day. For those that wish to relax you will find this house very peaceful.

Overall the house was very clean and well maintained and having the pool during the warmer days was ideal.

We would highly recommend this house for a wonderful stay in the south of France. When we next travel to France from Australia we would have no hesitation in returning.

Ideal quaint location

  • 4 of 5

The chateau was ideally located within walking distance to two quaint towns. This enabled us to walk into Fayence and grab groceries daily, there's nothing like fresh croissant, bread and jam everyday. The local wine store hooked us up every night, the owner was very knowledgeable and taught us about the wines of Fayence and surrounding areas. Bistro 8 was fantastic, felt like we had our own private chef. Jez and Pam were very accommodating and had some great tips for restaurant and places to see.

Fantastic and charming villa

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend this villa as all aspects; size, appearance, facilities and location were all fantastic; and Jez and Pam were very helpful in offering their assistance for anything we might have needed.

Travelling in a group of 8, we found the accommodation to be spacious and homely. The pool, bar and outdoor kitchen were especially popular!

The villa and cottage felt very homely and although more time was spent enjoying the exterior than the interior, the bedrooms, kitchen and living room in the house were very cosy.

The centre of Fayence was a short walk away up the private path, and the town itself had its fair share of tempting restaurants and bars to choose from.

The town is also fairly well connected and allows easy access to other places further out, being reasonably close to a main road further down the hillside, but it's far enough away for the road to not to be audible or visible.

It was difficult to leave the villa after the week we had there but every member of the party agreed that we wouldn't hesitate to return in the future.

Magnifique!

  • 5 of 5

I hesitate to write an excellent review for fear that this gem will be overly discovered and the price will go up...certainly couldn't blame Jez and Pam for doing so. This house, its lodgings next door (certainly the old écuries/stables), the pool and the property's special hideaways are fantastic! For those who like to cook, the kitchen cannot offer more pots, pans, appliances and certainly pitchers! Bones vacancies!

Suberb stay at a beautiful Villa!

  • 5 of 5

This is a superb Villa to stay at, in the beautiful village of Fayence. Jez and Pam are wonderful hosts and were extremely helpful. They even brought over some extra toys for the children to enjoy (thank you!).

The house was full of traditional French character thanks to the wonderful decor and furniture. Everywhere you look there is something different to see. Our favourite was the porthole window in the kitchen.

We didn't feel the need to eat out at all during our stay because the kitchen facilities and eating areas were amazing.

There are ample areas to sit, all with beautiful views over the landscape. We were a group of 4 different families and it was so lovely to be able to go to different parts of the villa to have our own bit of space.

We would definitely recommend this villa for anyone wanting to enjoy a real taste of France.
