Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday villa in Figanières - Montfleurie

2/3 Bedrooms (3rd bedroom on mezzanine floor), 2 bathrooms, sleeps 4/6.

Situated 55min west of Nice airport and 15min from junc 36 on the A8. From our Villa it is only 30 minutes drive to the Riviera coast. ( St Tropez, St Raphael, Frejus, Cannes ) Our house occupies an acre of south facing woodland and offers privacy and seclusion. It has a large living room and dining area that opens onto a covered terrace which overlooks the valley vineyards and the village of Figanieres. The house is central for visiting the Riviera coastline and the inland attractions of the Gorge Du Verdon and Lac de St Croix. St Endreol golf course is 15min drive away or there is tennis, cycle rental and horse riding in Figanieres. The 10m x 5m infinity pool occupies a magnificent hillside location and provides superb panoramic views of the surrounding countryside. The house is continually up-graded and has been recently refurbished and furnished to a high standard. Local restaurants are within walking distance and there are numerous restaurants at Les Arcs, Le Muy and Draguignan all within 15min drive. Excellent Wine Domaines are 10min drive away and all offer Wine tasting.

Golf de Barbaroux at Brignoles is 40 mins away. All courses offer green fees by the day and reductions for multiple days (5 to 10 days). All courses offer lower green fees at the twilight time (3hrs before sunset), so it is worth enquiring when booking. At St Raphael there is also a family golf club.

Great!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this property. We spent most time relaxing by the pool or looking at the tranquil views in the evenings. There is everything and more to help self-cater and you are well provided for in this respect. The house is very clean and the beds were very comfortable - we all slept really well. Mosquito nets meant we never got bitten in the night. The infinity pool was very big with same amazing views. This is a wonderful place for relaxing in the sun with plenty of space for shade and short drive for all amenities or bit further for sightseeing.

Delightful villa with super pool and views over the vineyards.

  • 5 of 5

The villa is situated half way up a hill side with panoramic views. The approach road takes a little getting used to, as it is steep, but it was certainly worth it.

The villa was very clean throughout and the kitchen was fully equipped with everything you could possibly need. The bed was very comfortable and with the mosquito nets over the windows you could leave them open all night if you wished. It was very peaceful there with only the sound of birds and cicadas.

The pool was a very good size and just the right temperature. The garden were terraced and very well maintained adding to the pleasure of staying there.

There are many pretty villages nearby well worth a visit such as Seillans, Clavier and Chateaudouble and St Maxime is a refined seaside resort.

Figaniere is a typical French village and to walk there and back through the vineyards is a delight.

This is definitely one of the best (of many) villas we have stayed in and we would thoroughly recommend. We are a retired couple.

Ein wunderschöner Rückzugsort

  • 5 of 5

Ein wunderschöner Rückzugsort. Der Pool ist ein absolutes Highlight, Frühstücken und Abendessen mit einem atemberaubenden Blick. Das Haus ist sehr gepflegt und sauber, die Küche mit allem ausgestattet was man benötigt und die Gastgeber sind bezaubernd und sehr zuvorkommend in allen Belangen. Wir haben eine wunderbare Woche dort verbracht.

A wonderful house in a very tranquil setting.

  • 5 of 5

This perfect property is situated ideally for those that want to explore all that the Var region has to offer. The property is clean and extremely comfortable containing quality furnishings and a well-equipped kitchen. The highlight of Monfleurie is its location overlooking vineyards and the fabulous infinity pool that overlooks this beautiful backdrop. This was our second visit to Montfleurie and we were as delighted with it as we were on our first. Excellent customer service from the owners. I would highly recommend.

Beautifully presented, great location

  • 5 of 5

The house was as described and more. The location was perfect for visiting local towns and villages and beyond. A lovely rural location set amongst vinyards but easy access to local amenities when required. We felt very 'at home' from the moment we arrived and we had evertything we could ask for. The house was perfectly presented and cleanliness on arrival a credit to the owners. The children (4 & 6) loved the pool wich we used every day. Alma was very helpful leading up to the holiday and answered our many questions and gave lots of useful information. This was our second time in Provence and having stayed in a different villa we the first time. This house certainly went beyond our expectations and we would love to book a further holiday here in the future.
