The
Experience

History and art buffs couldn’t hope for a more gracious or cultured host or a better converted barn – formerly housing cows and farm tools, its swimming pool has been adapted from a basin once used to water the cows and field. Your warm and delicately decorated bedroom looks over the garden to distant hills from a house full of antiques, original paintings and signs of world travels. Denise and her late husband lived in many places and she talks perceptively about them and their treasures over breakfast of fresh fruit, local patisseries and jams – and cheeses if you like. But tear yourselves away, there’s so much to do and see: climb, hike, glide, visit mediaeval marvels… Remarkable value.

Reviews

We loved this place, beautiful room and good shower( not ensuite but individual use in a quiet house, no other guests) generous breakfasts with freshly collected wide variety of bakery goods, and we were offered tto take any left if we could use them. The pool is excellent, and very easy access for those like myself who need to be careful. it is hard to find, and the owner came to collect us from the centre. The fire station is a good place to aim for.

Local points of interest from Denise Goss

  • Fayence is ideally situated for those wishing to explore the magnificent Côte d'Azur hinterland with its medieval hilltop villages, its traditional local markets, and many other sites of historical and artistic interest.
  • Sports enthusiasts will enjoy a wealth of hiking trails, water sports and swimming on a vaste nearby lake , golf at an internationally known 18-hole course 10 minutes away. Tennis and gliding figure amongst other activities available.
  • The Côte d'Azur is not far with Nice a must and full of unknown treasures. If you hanker after beaches and shopping, Cannes offers both! Grasse, the enchanting heart of France's perfume industry is nearby. Day trips to Monte Carlo, or Italy are very easy.
  • The area has excellent museums of every sort from the Maeght Foundation in Vence to a national pre-history museum near the Verdon Gorges, known as the Grand Canyon of Europe. Our mountain villages have untold and spectacular artistic treasures to discover!
  • The wines of the area are constantly winning prizes. There is an abundance of vineyards for visits and wine tasting...If you overindulge, I'll come and pick you up if necessary!!
  • There are many good local restaurants within walking distance of the house offering a variety of local and international cuisine. If desperate, there is a pizzeria next door...!
