So hidden even the local taxis couldnt find us!
Amazing holiday, just was too short and would love to come back again!
Lovely hosts that want you to enjoy their property!
It was such a pleasure to meet Mally and her lovely, smiling family. They were respectful of our home and had a wonderful sense of humour. They were the perfect guests and we hope to have the pleasure of welcoming them again at a future date. They also did us a favour by picking and eating the fresh figs so that they wouldn't fall on the ground and make a mess. The cat, Miss Daisy, missed them and walked around looking for them after they left so they must have all got along very well!
Beautiful house in a picturesque location
I would say the pictures do the house justice. It certainly has the French feel compared to somewhere ultra modern. It has everything you could need for a self catering holiday.
There are no local shops that you can walk to but a 5-10 minute drive will take you to plenty of shops, bakeries and restaurants.
I would recommend staying here if you want that true French feel in a lovely quiet location and you are happy to drive to places.
Note that a rule is not to get in the swimming pool with sun cream on to prevent staining the pool liner. This can be hard work if you have children as you constantly have to put suncream on them and then take it off again as my child loved the swimming pool.
We loved feeding the fish and their cat Miss Daisy.
I can certainly see why there are a lot of good reviews.
Pros: Beautiful home and location, all the amenities you need including a lovely swimming pool. Pleasant British couple owners who live close by for any support.
Cons: We arrived on a Sunday around 1pm and found that no basic food & drink essentials were provided. This is the first self catering place we have paid for via a holiday home website where the owner has not provided some basics such as milk, butter and bread. Basically the fridge was bear. Luckily we found somewhere open past 4pm so that we could eat and drink, more importantly for my daughter.
Towels are very coarse due to their age. I would recommend bringing your own if you prefer soft towels.
Make sure you do not mark/scratch or stain any towels or kitchen utensils when you are there as the couple are very particular and will charge you from your deposit regardless of some of these items being somewhat worn and old already.
We only make deductions from the security deposits in exceptional circumstances when guests have disrespected our home and items have been broken or damaged to such an extent that they need replacing. We have only done so on four occasions in fifteen years of letting because guests usually replace them themselves before they leave. Unfortunately when we make a justified reduction a guest may overeact.
Too good to be true - but it is!
La pierre qui chante is truly a hidden paradise!
The house is marvelously pleasant, we felt at home immediately. Four lovely bedrooms, a very well equipped kitchen and an ample and cosy living room, we barely used because of the wonderful weather.
The lay of the house and the pool is spectacular: views all around. The pictures on the website do not do it enough credit. It was our own private peaceful paradise. Star watching in the evening by the pool. Drinking rose in all the different seating arrangements at the various terrases.
The pool is absolutely gorgeous and plenty of space around it to enjoy the sun or shade.
Marjie and Tony are perfect hosts: showing us around and taking wonderful care of us.
I would recommend La pierre qui chante to everyone!
Marlies, Bernard and family were the guests that every host wishes to have. They took care of and showed respect for our property. Miss Daisy, the house cat was pampered and returned the favour by accepting them as if they were us. They were friendly and very appreciative guests and we enjoyed Bernard's wonderful sense of humour. It was such a pleasure to meet and get to know them and we would be delighted to welcome them back at any time, in fact, we sincerely hope that they will return.
Another wonderful week in Fayence
Our Norwegian family of four, two teenage friends of our son plus two of our best friends, a married couple from Sweden, spent a week at La Pierre Qui Chante during this year’s summer vacation. We took, in other words, full advantage of the villa.
It was good to be back. So many things in this world change rapidly. La Pierre Qui Chante, Fayence and Provence doesn´t. Thanks!
It has been four years since we were here last time, but it felt like yesterday.
Tony and Marjie welcomed us like last time. Informed us of everything we needed to know, but it only took 5 minutes this time as we already knew the place and the surroundings. As Tony is a gentleman, he followed up by a few phone calls the next days, to make sure that everything was all right with us. Everything in the villa and the property is well looked after, well equipped and has everything you need.
The total privacy and the property’s unparalleled location makes it a private paradise. Relaxing, swimming in the pool, barbequing in the evening, enjoying a glass of wine while looking at the wonderful scenery makes you forget the everyday buzz. I (the father of the house) am a runner, and a morning run in the nearby forests where you can smell the summer in Provence is highly recommended.
We were happy to find Miss Daisy (the property cat) still around, the children loved it, even if she was hunting more on the night-time than last time in 2014.
We shopped at Super U Fayence (supermarket) every day. Ate lunch in Fayence twice. Enjoyed a day trip to Cannes one day and visited a local Vineyard in one of the neighbouring villages another day.
Our daughter and one went horse riding at Area Equestre at Saint Paul, just 15 minutes’ walk from La Pierre Qui Chante.
But, most of the time was spent at La Pierre Qui Chante. We played table tennis, had a family Petanque tournament every evening, before we rounded the evening off in the living room with a good book and a game of Yahtzee.
We will be back again, and we don’t think it is 4 years till next time.
Thank you, Tony and Marjie.
It was good to see Christian and his family again. They took good care of the house and also Miss Daisy who was very pleased that she got regular brushing and that the meals were on time. They were a very pleasant group and are always welcome.
Un petit coin de paradis

Home away from home in a fabulous location
Perfectly located, La Pierre Qui Chante is only a 45 minute drive from Nice airport but feels a world away from the hustle and bustle. It is set in unspoilt countryside, close to several picture post card villages. The pretty and historic village of Fayence is about 10 minutes away by car providing access to a supermarket and essential shops; Fayence also hosts a market three times a week with a variety of stalls including fresh and fabulous seasonal fruit, vegetables, cheeses etc. There are a number of tempting boulangeries, cafes and restaurants close by and the delicious Marche Paysan stocking the best of regional produce is a short run down the D562; a great stopping off point on the way to visit the pretty villages of Callian or Montereaux. Further on, the beautiful Lake Cassien with opportunities for swimming and fishing is well worth a visit; there are photo opportunities at every turn. Each time we return to La Pierre Qui Chante we find new places to explore on our doorstep, as well as having the option of venturing even further afield to the coast or the mountains. We really are spoilt for choice in this beautiful part of the world
The house itself is totally private and very peaceful with lovely views from all sides. The outdoor living space is spacious and perfect for relaxing and soaking up the warmth of the Provençal climate; we have enjoyed hours of sunshine and blue skies lounging around the pool. There are a number of walks locally and opportunities for longer walks further afield; if you can tear yourself a way from the pool side!
La Pierre Qui Chante is a comfortable home that is very easy to live in; it is spacious, clean and very well equipped with all of the necessary comforts and amenities. Marjie and Tony are warm and welcoming; they are great ambassadors for the region and have a wealth of local knowledge.
We are eagerly planning our next visit in 2018.
The perfect guests. They had a great respect for our home and on each occasion they left everything immaculate. Miss Daisy, the cat, gets totally spoilt for two weeks. They were good company with a great sense of humour and we look forward to the possibility of welcoming them again in the future.
Long drømmen plasseringen av francophiles verden over, er Provence med sine synspunkter, lys, farger og lukten av lavendel i luften berusende. Klimaet her er den beste i Frankrike og besøkende fra Nord-Europa kommer hit for å unnslippe sin egen usikkert vær. Heldigvis med all denne populariteten er det massevis av plass - spesielt hvis du våger her i innlandet hvor landlige livet fortsetter, og du vil finne uberørt natur, vingårder og olivenlunder.
Denne delen av Sør-Frankrike, satt tilbake fra kysten, har beholdt sin skjønnhet samtidig ha alle fasiliteter tenkelig.
Fayence er den største landsbyen i en gruppe på 8 som utgjør "Pays de Fayence '. Det er en ideell størrelse (5000 innbyggere i kommunen) - stort nok til å ha alle fasiliteter og infrastruktur, men likevel liten nok til å beholde sin karakter og landsbyatmosfære. Det er et kulturelt sentrum og utenfor teatret hvor show og spiller holdes, og danser og sommer arrangementer holdes på torget utenfor kirken.
Hver av landsbyene har sin egen karakter, sommerfestivaler, danser og arrangementer. Det er markeder, utallige gode restauranter, butikker av alle slag, inkludert supermarkeder, barer, garasjer - og alle landsbyene tilbyr gratis parkering.
Det er juv, innsjøer og elver for å utforske, vingårder og olivenmøller, noe som gjør Fayence en fantastisk ferie området.
Selve huset er mellom landsbyene St. Paul en Foret (5 min) og Fayence (10 min). Det er tennis, riding, golf, gliding i nærheten (alle innen 10 minutter), og også en stor innsjø (St. Cassien) for vannsport 20 minutter unna.
Fayence er omtrent halvveis mellom Draguignan og Grasse, og Nice lufthavn ligger bare 50 minutter unna.
