About the property

4 bedroom 3 bathroom villa with direct village views in Fayence

A beautiful Provencal villa in the French countryside with direct views up to the perched village of Fayence. It is just 20 minutes to the A8 motorway and 40 minutes to La Croisette in Cannes. The property has ample parking for 5 cars or more.

Sleeping up to 8 people in 4 full bedrooms and 3 bathrooms (2 en suite with shower and 1 with bath), the lounge and dining area open out to the terrace and large lush garden with a private heated pool equipped with a number of pool toys and child-friendly floatation aids. The pool area will also have a secure child-friendly fence installed right around the entire pool in time for summer rentals. Facilities include washing/drying machine, cable TV, internet (wifi available throughout property and all of garden/pool area), easy to use gas BBQ and ironing board. There are also 2 hammocks, a petanque set (which can be played on the lawn or on the large gravelled parking area), a croquet set, a football goal net, a ping pong table and a basketball net.

The villa is family friendly with cots, high chairs and use of a pushchair provided and is ideally situated with less than a five minute walk to both the best rated hotel and the best rated restaurant in the Fayence area on TripAdvisor. 2 other Michelin starred restaurants are also very close by. A 5 minute drive will take you to a horse riding centre and the Fayence aerodrome, the largest of its sort in Europe, where you can try your hand at gliding and other flying adventures. Just 10 minutes away you'll find Lake St Cassien which provides a huge array of water sports and leisure activities in the summer like kayaking, pedaloes and water slides. Golfers can enjoy a relaxing round with a backdrop of stunning scenery at the nearby high end resort of Terre-Blanche, which was formerly the Four Seasons of Provence.

About Yumi Ponting

We are an English couple with 2 young children. We have spent an extensive time in the villa before deciding to rent it out. We have good knowledge of the local area and plenty of recommendations of things to do for families. We are more than happy to provide extensive suggestions of places we have visited from great play areas for kids to really special evening places for adults.

Why Yumi Ponting chose Fayence

The villa's location near the coast but inland enough to retain a thoroughly rural and private experience is (unfortunately) becoming rather unique along the Cote d'Azur. There are few places like ours where you can have the experience of 10s of acres of agricultural land right outside your front gate (the roses for the Dior perfume of J'Adore are grown on the other side of the road), wonderful bucolic walks and great cycling routes starting from your doorstep, and all the resorts from Monaco to St Tropez across the Cote d'Azur easily accessible as day trips by car.
