About Denise & David Marchington

We retired to the South of France after living and working in South East Asia for over 35 years. Born in England and France, both of us had been expatriates for most of our lives.

Denise & David Marchington purchased this apartment in 1991

Why Denise & David Marchington chose Fayence

We wanted to live away from cold northern winters. Fayence appealed because we have friends in the area and we bought the house because of its location near to the village and the magnificent views towards the mountains to the north and west. We love the area.

What makes this apartment unique

The view with the constantly changing colours and light, the quietness and the convenience. We love to sit by the pool on a summer's evening, sipping a glass of local rosé and watching the colours change as the sun goes down.

Fantastisch uitzicht, leuk en proper zwembad, rustig

  • 4 of 5

Om te relaxen en te genieten van de zon en de omgeving. Markt en bakker op wandelafstand. Veel leuke dingen om te bezoeken in de omgeving. Een plaats om nog eens terug te keren. Hondjes en poes zoeken contact maar zijn goed opgevoed.

Delightful stay!

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed a wonderful week at Les Cheminées. The facilities were impeccable - everything within the beautifully maintained apartment had been thoughtfully provided. The pool was magnificent and a welcome attraction on a hot sunny afternoon. Our hosts, Denise and David were welcoming, informative and very easy to get on with. We would highly recommend this apartment in a wonderful location with outstanding views. We hope to go back!

We have just returned from a wonderful second holiday at Les Cheminees and immediately booked the same fortnight for next year. We have stayed in many rental properties over the years but this is in a class of its own - a beautiful location, optimum comfort, superb facilities with everything thought of and the most delightful hosts who quickly become friends. David and Denise are so kind and helpful and really go the extra mile for their guests. Fayence (just a short walk away) is a lovely village with excellent restaurants and is lively enough to entertain our two teenage daughters. If you love people watching, dropping in on a jazz festival or watching a boules tournament with all ages competing, then this is the place to be. It's also an easy drive to beautiful beaches, a wonderful lake with pedalo hire and all the luxury and grandeur of the Cote d'Azur. Also, there are two water parks within reach for families. All in all, we have decided that this is our perfect location and that's why we are breaking with our usual habits and going back for a third time. There's probably no higher praise one can bestow!

A home from home gite

  • 5 of 5

Peaceful, lovely scenery, welcoming and attentive owners .... the perfect base for exploring the region with Cannes, Nice, Monte Carlo and Verdon Gorge all in easy travelling distance. The property literally has every thing you need whether you intend to spend most of your time there or use it as a base to explore the region. Would go back without hesitation.

Even after having read all the very positive comments and reviews , our three weeks stay at Les Cheminees nevertheless exceeded our expectations with regards to the quality of the house ,the amenities , the swimming pool and the quietness.

David and Denise are great hosts , always available for information and to lend a helping when required.

We have been in a lot of houses and apartments in France , Italy and Portugal in the past years but this one really stands out !

Needless to say we plan to come back again .

Wonderful setting, apartment and hosts.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of three spent ten wonderful nights at Les Chimenees in late summer 2013. We found what, for us, was the perfect balance; wonderful views, fantastic pool, a rural setting yet with walkable ameneties, fine food and drink close at hand, privacy, much of interest locally and the best of the Cote d'azur within striking distance.

The apartment is very comfortable and has excellent facilities. The kitchen is well stocked, the pool equipment superb, while there are plenty of little touches such as picnic gear which you don't often find elsewhere. The pool and poolside are well designed and maintained and a very pleasant spot to while away a few hours.

David and Denise were the perfect hosts, welcoming and helpful, respectful and accommodating. They are full of local knowledge, and are great company over a game of boule, but beware, Denise is a deadly shot,

We would certainly recommend Les Chimenees. A fine base away from the chaos of the coast, but close enough to dip in at your leisure.

Andy, Elaine and Martha.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the great review. We much enjoyed meeting you and Denise promises next time not to be such a "deadly shot" at boules. Hope to see you again in Fayence.
