Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday farmhouse in Flayosc - Plan de Noyer

2 bedroom, 1 bathroom, sleeps a maximum of 6

Spacious self-contained part of a fully restored 18th century farmhouse 2 km from the picturesque village of Flayosc. The ground floor apartment has its own parking, entrance and spacious sun-terrace (60 m2). There are 2 large bedrooms, sleeps max 6, a bathroom with shower and WC, combined equipped kitchen and sitting room with fireplace. The rooms have been restored with lots of care with beams and some other details in the bedrooms originate from the 18th century.

The solar heated swimming pool (4x8) is entirely for the private use for the rental guests (the owners may go for a quick swim when it's very hot). The pool has a decent temperature between May and September (above 23 C).

The property is set in 10 acres of vineyard, olive trees and pine forest. The owners produce 200 bottles of excellent rosé wine.

There are plenty of nice walks near the property.

The property also has a 9 hole pitching course set in 2 ha (5 acres).

The area: Situated 2 kilometres from Flayosc, 7 kilometres west of Draguignan, 1 hour from Nice Airport. Only 40 mins away from the sandy beaches of the St. Tropez bay and the dramatic scenery of Gorges de Verdon. Perched medieval villages, olive mills, wine tasting and first class gourmet restaurants. There are 15 challenging golf courses within an hour's drive.

There are plenty of nice countryside walks near the house.

Staying in the Bastide is especially interesting for those looking to purchase a property in Provence, as we co-operate with a few selected estate agents at no extra cost to the buyer.

Flayosc: 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, pharmacy, bank, several bars and restaurants, laundry/dry cleaner and wine cooperative.

It also has a tourist office offering excellent information about the area.

The Kahler-Norder family: We are a Swedish family of three, Jan, Lisa, Amanda (born in 1993) and Carmen, a giant schnautzer (born on 2005). We live here permanently and would be more than happy to give you plenty of advice regarding places worth visiting and tell you about our favouriteplaces, beaches & restaurants.

The apartment is situated on the ground floor and it's completely independent from our part of the house with entrances on the other side.

We have a small vineyard and produce 150 bottles of rosé wine. Whilst you're staying with us we'll invite you over for a glass (or two)!

Our vine harvest normally takes place some time during the first three weeks of September. You will be asked if you'd like to join us to pick and press the grapes. After a morning's hard work you're invited to have lunch with us at the old stone table. It's a great day with lots of fun.

About Elisabeth Kähler

We're a Swedish family living on the other side of this old farmhouse. After 8 years of working hard in the City of London we decided to take a break and buy a property tha needed renovation in the south of France. Our daughter Amanda was born in 1993 and we decided to stay on.

Elisabeth Kähler purchased this farmhouse in 1992

Why Elisabeth Kähler chose Draguignan region

My husband Jan and I know this area very well after more than 20 years in Flayosc and we'd be more than happy to give you plenty of advice regarding the nearby villages, markets, beaches and places worth visiting.

What makes this farmhouse unique

We have a small vineyard and every september rental guests are invited to harvest the vine followed by a delicious lunch buffet among friends!

Every week we invite our rental guests for an apéritif on the terrace, serving our own rosé!

Le Plan De Noyer

  • 5 of 5

Following our one week stay in April, we returned to see if it was as good as we thought. Wrong!!! It was better!!

This time for two weeks we were accompanied by daughter and partner. Four adults and always ample room in all areas proving that the gite is extremely spacious. We found it, again, impeccably clean with everything exactly as described in the web sites.

The gite is part of a 200 yr. old farmhouse and is all that one thinks about with the word "Provence". It ia not a Canary Wharf Apartment! So, Lisa, please do not modernise anything as this would ruin the ambience.

Both bedrooms are very roomy with Swedish comfort beds.

The kitchen is true Provence with everything needed for all meals. Walk directly out onto the large patio for al fresco dining / BBQ with enough room to choose sun or shade as required.

Bathroom again Provencial but with new shower area - par excellence - with plentiful supply of hot water.

A short walk round to the south side reaches the stunning pool area, with views across flowers/shrubs/vines and olives to the nearby forests. The view is worth the stay alone. At this side of the property are the genial hosts, Lisa and Jan, who are ever ready to advise/help - and offer some of Jan's own rose wine. Also meet the friendliest of dogs - Callas and Carmen - to make the perfect convivial atmosphere.

If there is a fault with the gite and the provisions, then we could not find it!

Take a 5 min. drive / 20 min. stroll to Flayosc - a truly living village unspoilt by tourism. There are ample bars and resaurants and all shops for vast majority of requirments. Try dining at Cafe Du Midi / Vezzo D'Oglio / L'Ousteau / Cafe Meilse - all excellent.

Flayosc is deally situated for touring ... Gorge Du Verdon / Lac St. Crois / Moustiere / Tourtour / Villecruze(+ caves) are all "must see" as is the Riviera - St. Maxime and boat trrip to St. Tropez. All are easilly reached through superb scenery.

Then the markets - every day! Best are Aups, Salernes and Lorgues. So much to do / so little time!

Finally, take the 30 min. drive up the Gorge du Chateaudouble and dine on the terrace of the Restaurant La Tour at Chateaudouble. Superb food and view down the gorge.

Cannot praise the gite and Flayosc enough...

Think "Provence" = Think "Le Plan de Noyer"

Wonderful stay in the heart of Provence

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this genuine apartment, in the heart of Provence. We had stunning weather and its perfect location gave us access to attractions such as;

- les Gorges du Verdon (Europe's Grand canyon - our very favourite!)

- local markets

- beautiful beaches (Nice, Saint-Tropez & Saint-Raphael)

- Caves of Villecroze

- wine tasting at local vineyards

- the worldwide renown truffle restaurant 'Chez Bruno'

- dinners at very good restaurants in Flayosc

We also spent a few lazy days by the pool and got the chance to hike in the surrounding woods.

We were delighted by our stay, and very thankful to have gotten to know the owners, Jan & Lisa. This very friendly and down-to-earth couple invited us for a little apéritif, serving homemade wine and olives - delicious!

We would love to come back one day and highly recommend this apartment for couples or families (ideal for four people).

Magical 10 days!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a magical 10 days at this charming farmhouse. The welcoming hosts gave us excellent advice on excursions which made us really make the most of our stay. We would highly recommend the Plan de Noyer for both families and couples. There is plenty to see and do in the nearby surroundings and the house has a lovely pool where we relaxed after our outings. We would live to come back one day!

A Week In Provence

  • 4 of 5

Plan de Noyer is a lovely rustic, spacious gite, ideal for 4 adults. The lovely views and the pool are on via the owners side of the property.

Access to the property is down a narrow unmade road, which if you are in a car is ok, but not great if you are on motorbikes, as we were. Around the property itself requires you to negotiate a number of steps.

We did not get to meet Jan and Lisa as they were away on holiday, but we were made to feel very welcome by their friends (Fran & Peter) who managed the property in their absence. They were perfect hosts and could not do enough for us.

During our stay we ventured up to the Gorges Du Verdon (which were stunning) and the south coast to Nice & Monaco. Flayosc is close enough to walk to, so we took the opportunity to do so on 2 evenings to sample the delights of the restaurants there.

Overall we had a wonderful time, the weather was excellent and the company, especially including Fran & Pete, were great.

Exceeding expectations

  • 5 of 5

I spent a lovely week together with my wife. Flat was nicely decorated in true Provencale style. Location is perfect for making excursions to nearby sights. We especially enjoyed visiting the beautiful little village of Flayosc.

We can truly recommend to other travellers
