An apartment in Provence style, totally renovated with beams and alcoves is on the third floor of small block of 4 flats. On the first level: a nice size bedroom with a double bed overlooking the provencal countryside; a bathroom with bath and shower; a separate WC and a spacious L shaped room comprising a living area and a dining area with a chimney and a well equipped American kitchen. On the second level, 2 bedrooms, one of which is a spacious mezzanine with a double bed and with adjacent storage room and hanging space. The other bedroom (with a convertible sofa bed for 2 persons) is opening onto a terrace with a built in barbecue. From the terrace there is a beautiful view of the roof tops of Flayosc and the beautiful surrounding countryside. *If you prefer to travel light we can provide you with lovely bed linen ,towels and duvets for 15€ per person.
The village: The delightful medieval village of Flayosc is typically Provencal with its large shady square, its fountains, old church, and rambling rooftops. It is the perfect location to relax and enjoy the beauty of Provence, far away from the busy tourist spots on the coast. There are innumerable cafes where you can sit on the terrace, sip a glass of local wine and watch the world go by! The village can provide everything one needs: excellent shops for food (bakeries, butcher, grocery and fruit/veg shops, etc), a weekly market with a great array of local produce, including olive oil, pharmacy, bank, several restaurants, laundry/dry cleaners and wine cooperative.(It also has a very good traiteur (delicatessen) who prepares excellent regional dishes, thus saving cooking at home! It is a village, which is a pleasurable in the winter months as it is in the summer. The hustle and bustle continues year round, whereas some beautiful little provencal villages tend to die out in winter.
The Area: Flayosc is surrounded by vineyards and olive groves, and the countryside is very unspoilt with its woods, hills and wonderful views. There are excellent walks, with lots of wild flowers in the Spring and early Summer. The area has some wonderful picnic spots, one of which is beside a huge waterfall and river with shady banks - great for hot summer days! It can also be fun to rent bikes and explore on two wheels instead of four! There are many nearby villages to visit, all with something of interest. Also in the area are abbeys, chateaux, art exhibitions, antique fairs and flea markets, etc. The famous Gorges du Verdon, to the north, has the Lac de St Croix at their entrance. Also good for picnics and it is even possible to rent a pedaloe and go into the beginning of the Gorges! We leave information in the flat on places to go and to visit.
Access: The main south of France autoroute, A8, which runs from Italy to Avignon is only 15 minutes from Flayosc. This makes sightseeing easy, and you can visit Nice (one hour) with its great old town and its many good museums, galleries and shops. Cannes takes a bit less. Aix en Provence and |Marseille are about an hour away in the opposite direction. St. Tropez and sandy beaches are about 40 mins to the south, and the magnificent Gorges du Verdon and the lake St. Croix are about 40 minutes to the north. Italy is an easy day's outing and so are the various islands just off the coast by Toulon. Airports: Nice (one hour) or Marseille (a little over one hour). Rail Station: Les Arcs Draguignan.
