About Lucy Clayton-Payne
In July 2003, we walked up the drive of Les Terrasses & my first words were... "I wish this was ours... wouldn't you die to have a place like this?" Two months later, it was ours and ten years on we have a spacious, comfortable, fun and well-equipped home. We reflect on serendipity with a warm smile and just a bit of back ache. We love it. Chris is a GP and I have a business specialising in presentation skills training. We have 4 grown-up children who, like us, enjoy lying by the pool, playing tennis and boules, sipping rosé, long lazy lunches, giggly outdoor suppers, breathtaking walks, winter skiing, fabulous golf, amazing restaurants, gorgeous markets, nearby sandy coves, Mediterranean scents, gastronomy... Knackered and thin we stagger in, happy and stout we stagger out.

Why Lucy Clayton-Payne chose Saint-Paul-en-Foret
This area of Provence is something else... on the one hand you have the beauty of rural Var and on the other, you have the sophistication of the Cote d'Azur. From our Cambridge home, we can get door to door in about 5-6 hours. EasyJet and other carrier flights from UK airports to Nice are in abundance and it's just 45 mins to the villa from Nice airport. Our local village, St. Paul en Foret and our local town, Fayence are both very 'French' and very attractive with lots going on, in and around them. The joy of this area is that you can opt for a sophisticated day out in Mougins, Antibes or many other tourist spots, but you can then come back to the serenity and privacy of a beautiful home. Perfect.
What makes this villa unique
It's wonderful to have so much to do. The active ones enjoy endless games of tennis on the private tennis court and the less energetic love to lounge by the pool or sip at their drink whilst playing boules. Guests with young children thank their god for the sky package... their kids are watching TV while they have their lie in. Our guests who love to cook comment on the brilliant kitchen... they can potter away but everything else going on is still within ear shot. Those who love to madly launder (?) have everything to hand. Those who love to sample local vino enjoy the plethora of domaines within striking distance - especially Val d'Iris. From markets to mountains, it's all nearby. We're talking minutes, not hours. Funny though... many don't budge for the duration.
