Rental Home
Our beautiful house, built of local stone, is set in park-like surroundings, with cypress trees, fig trees, flowering shrubs and the maquis undergrowth which is typical of the area. The garden also has a round swimming pool, fed with fresh water from a local spring. Further there is a place to play petanque. The house has a large living room with traditional rustic bare stone walls and exposed beams. The living room has a dining area and a comfortable sitting out area round the open fireplace. There are also steps up from the living room to a mezzanine area. The large kitchen is in the traditional Provençal country style, though with all modern facilities. From the kitchen there is access to a scullery and a wine cellar. On the first floor there are 3 good-sized bedrooms with double bed...Our beautiful house, built of local stone, is set in park-like surroundings, with cypress trees, fig trees, flowering shrubs and the maquis undergrowth which is typical of the area.

There is also a guest toilet on the ground floor. Outside, there is a pergola which makes a perfect shaded spot for taking outdoor meals in the summer. The house is in excellent condition. PAY de FAYENCE The old towns, which are strung along the hill-tops like a row of pearls, still look much like they did when the Saracens departed.The old town gateway of Fayence stands open and is the scene lively activity. Close to the church the old market square is ringed with cafés and restaurants. Fayence is the main town in the area and the liveliest. It has many small shops in the old quarter, and numerous restaurants to suit all tastes and all pockets.There are several supermarkets near to the town, as well as a farmers' market, where local producers bring fresh foods daily. THE SURROUNDING AREA Fayence and Seillans are in the heart of Provence. The climate is mild all year round, with around 300 days of sunshine annually and an average temperature from April to September of 26º celsius. The area offers a whole range of activities, such as rafting, mountain walking, riding, cycling, windsurfing, gliding and golf. A beatifull 18 holes golf course, Domaine de Terre Blanche, has opend in the summer 2003, just below Fayence. In 2004 once again another 18 holes golf course opened at the same place. The drive from Fayence to Cannes and St Raphael takes about half an hour, and it is about a quarter of an hours drive to Lac de St Cassien, where there is fishing, swimming and sailing. 45 minutes away there is the Grand Canyon de Verdon, - Europe's biggest canyon. Anyone interested in skiing will find the nearest ski slopes about an hour away. There are plenty of opportunities for wine tasting in the local wineries, and Grasse, the famous centre for perfumes, is only half an hour away. For those with an appetite for something more cultural, there are the Matisse and Chagall museums in Nice, the Picasso museum in Antibes and a rare collection of Picasso's ceramic works of art in VallaurisMore
