The Experience

Pass olive groves, vineyards and pine forests to this big sturdy house on the outskirts of the village, with airy, comfortable and spacious rooms facing away from the road and overlooking a huge garden with roses and more olive groves.

It’s a fabulous place to share with family or friends, with a large sitting room sporting comfy sofas and heaps of books and board games, and a kitchen with a table that seats 10. In summer you can dine on the terrace shaded by a mulberry tree, and a smaller terrace is perfect for breakfast or evening drinks.

You can be in Cannes in 30 minutes as well as several other hilltop villages, all with distinctive character – nearby Mons has a medieval old town well worth a visit. Les Gorges du Verdon, the Grand Canyon of Europe, is an hour away. For dinner, head up the hill into the village: Fayence has restaurants galore.

Reviews

I found this house full of charm, extremely light and spacious. The garden space around the large terrace is delightful and a lovely space in which to relax. This house is extremely well located for all activities in Fayence and the surrounding area.

Location

The neighbourhood

This is a peaceful spot but you’re near to good shops and of course the bakery for your morning croissants and baguette. Fayence has very good markets in the village square opposite the church on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, brimming with local produce. In the summer season the village square hosts a dance night each week – join in and feel very French.

Local points of interest from Cynthia & Peter

  • The medieval village of Fayence with its bustling market (three times a week) is set in the hills behind the Côte d’Azur. Further up, we recommend a visit to the picturesque village of Mons. On a clear day you can see as far as Corsica.
  • We feel that we have the best of both worlds here, being within easy reach of the coastal towns and beaches as well as of the mountains. There are other hill villages nearby, each with a very distinct character of its own and well worth exploring.
  • One of France’s major gliding venues lies just at the foot of Fayence. The area is a paradise for cyclists, hikers and walkers, not forgetting water-sports enthusiasts who are served by the superb Lac St Cassien nearby.
  • For golfers, the world-class Four Seasons Terre Blanche resort is only 5 minutes down the road. For adrenalin junkies, the Accrobranche Riviera Nature Grasse Forest park has zip lines & tree-top rope courses for adults & kids, plus views of the Riviera.
  • The always breathtaking Gorges du Verdon which are known as Europe's answer to the Grand Canyon are always worth a visit. Slightly closer to home, the Siagne and Siagnole rivers offer all manner of beautiful scenery.
  • A short walk from the house is the 11th century chapel Notre Dame des Cyprès. As its name suggests, it's surrounded by cypress trees and is an ideal spot to sit and reflect.
