17th. century village house

  • Property description
    Fayence
    |
    Rental Home – 
    6 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 12
    Our house in Mons is a private retreat for our family and friends, with our collection of paintings, drawings and sculpture, plus a library of art books and DVD's. Although the house has full modern facilities, all of the original 17th. Century Provencale features have been maintained. Parts of the house are 13th. Century and the village itself has remained untouched for centuries, described by the New York times as 'the last unspoilt village in Provence.'

    With five storeys, including the atelier, the house has grown over centuries, but has been lovingly restored to provide all modern amenities. Five individual double or twin bedrooms and a further double bedroom on a private mezzanine floor, complement the spacious living areas and a large fully equipped kitchen with modern...

    Additional amenities & feature info
    Our house is eccentric, to say the least and new visitors spend time finding their way up and down staircases to find rooms that surprise with their own individual character and spaciousness. Five bedrooms have two single beds that can be made into double beds (one a banquette) and the private mezzanine floor over the lounge area has a double sofa bed.

    The focal point of the house is the large kitchen with the original Provencale table, now a little rickety, but which with care will last for more years. But the large roof terrace and its spectacular views across the mountains and valleys of Var to the Mediterranean provide the perfect spot to sit, look, relax and sample fine French wine and food with mesmerising views that stretch almost 100km.

This house is so good I feel it should almost be kept a secret. We loved this house traveling as group of 3freinds, we were spoiled with the authenticity of the house, the generous facilities, and the village itself. Always a quiet corner, but a fun house with its maze like staircases and rooms. A terrace to enjoy any time of day. A wonderful area to explore. Not a party house, a house to be respected. more

Spent a week over New Year at this extraordinary house in remote, peaceful and charming village. Being an old house in the village the layout is complex but fascinating and the amenities from TV projected onto chimney-breast to WiFi and warm luxourious bathrooms are first class. Highligth was New year's day breakfast on the balcony/terrace in the sunshine ovelooking the valley down to Cannes and looking across to Corisca.
Nothing much was gong on in the village at this time of year except for the great little bakery but the scope for walking is great.
Compared to some places we have rented staying here was effortless and we had a very relaxing enjoyable New year's break
