Immerse yourself in the history of the French village of Fayence in the heart of Provence.

HISTORY Our comfortable 1 bedroom apartment is nested within the village medieval walls erected over 1200 years ago to fight the Saracen invasions. Around the 17 century the villagers started to use the walls as residences opening windows and passage ways.

HISTORY Our comfortable 1 bedroom apartment is nested within the village medieval walls erected over 1200 years ago to fight the Saracen invasions. Around the 17 century the villagers started to use the walls as residences opening windows and passage ways. Fayence was also a well sought after place since Roman times for its gentle climate, pure waters, rich soils and location. The Romans built aqueducts (still functioning) to bring water from the Alps and used the local clay to make the still famous Faience pottery. THE APARTMENT Our 1 bedroom apartment has just been renovated to luxurious modern standards. Local raw marble features everywhere from the bathroom to the kitchen and terrace.. We have a separate en-suite bedroom with all the storage you may need. The bathroom is equipped with an Italian style shower and laundry facility. The living room has a large flat screen TV and internet connection giving you access to most European Channels), a sofa bed ((sleeps 2). The kitchen is fully equipped with a small stove, convection plate, and 2 under bench fridges. The 20 square metre marble terrace is what makes this apartment truly unique. It gives you the chance to relax in the sun during day time while participating indirectly to the local village life. It is equipped with a comfortable outdoor sitting arrangement, tables and even a small outdoor fountain. Guest Access The apartment is totally yours to enjoy. Interaction with Guests There is no interaction with guest. The Neighbourhood LOCATION: The place is perfect for a couple wanting to discover the French Riviera. We are located within an hour drive from the cities of Cannes (30 min), Frejus, St Tropez, Antibes and Nice (International Airport) as well as most tourist attractions in a region renowned for its Rose wines, beaches, and lakes. The famous Gorges du Verdon is also a recommended day trip for anyone in love with nature at its best. Fayence is also an attraction by itself for its village life, ancient past, sporting activities (Kayaking, gliding, fishing, hiking), gourmet restaurants as well as cultural and music festivals. Getting Around Parking in Provencal villages is always a challenge. It is usually a first come first serve issue after 5pm. However, there are several parking lots withing 5 min walk. Most restaurants, cafes, markets, shops and village attraction are within 10 min walk from the apartment. Nice international Airport is also 1 hour drive from Fayence by the motorway. Other Things to Note The place is not ideal for very tall or extra large people as the ceiling are at 190cm in most places and the access staircase is relatively narrow. We also attract your attention that the terrace balustrades are unsafe for very small children (bars too far apart).More
