The house

Welcome to villa Favienta Loca, a meticulously renovated bergerie (5p) (shepherd’s house) with an adjacent Studio (2p). This large and airy home stands on 3700m2 enclosed grounds graced with mature trees and ancient olives. The property is at once private and easy accessible and passable because of its flat terrain. Favienta Loca features 250 m2 tastefully restored living space and is equipped with every modern convenience. Free high speed broadband internet.

THE VILLA: the front door opens to a large entrance hall, leading to a mezzanine gallery and two large bedrooms. At this level you will find two large bedrooms. One room is furnished with a double bed (180x200) and another with three single beds (90x200). Each bedroom has its own private bathroom with shower, sink and toilet.
The main floor on the lower level consists of a large L-shaped living room (55 m2) with a wood burning fireplace, a dining room, a family room and a kitchen. All with access to a large terrace. The living room is furnished with two sofas, a large coffee table and a bookcase filled with (travel)books. Here you will also find the satellite TV and audio equipment. The kitchen is fully quipped with an oven, microwave, a fridge-freezer, a dishwasher, Nespresso coffee machine and ample good quality cooking utensils and tableware. From the terrace you can view the private swimming pool (10x5m).

THE STUDIO with separate entrance borders the villa. It sleeps two and consists of a sleeping- and sitting area, private bathroom with shower and a kitchenette.

Garden furniture consists of a large teakwood table with comfortable chairs, loungers, umbrellas and sun loungers. There are several terraces with different views. Take in the scenery with a cup of coffee, a glass of wine and enjoy long evenings in an enchanted lit garden. Weber BBQ available.

The villa is a short 3 km from the picturesque village of Fayence, perched among the beautiful rolling hills of the scenic Provence. It is part of a cluster of five charming medieval hill-top villages. Fayence is also within easy access to the Riviera. In the village you will find everything for your daily needs: bakery, supermarket, restaurants, quaint gift shops, antique stores and the post and the tourist office. You can shop three times a week at the farmers market or venture to nearby beach resort towns such as Cannes, Fréjus and St. Raphaèl within 35 km. Access to Nice airport in just 45 minutes. Or try a short excursion to St. Tropez (1 hour). Fayence is also just an hour’s drive from the impressive Gorges du Verdon – the European Grand Canyon – and lake St.Croix.

Wij hebben een heerlijke ontspannen vakantie gehad in Faviente Loca. De Var is een prachtige streek met zowel de kust dichtbij (Cannes) als mooie ruige natuur. De villa is tot in de puntjes verzorgt, heel sfeervol, fijne bedden en kwalitatief hoogwaardige inrichting en apparatuur. Leuk dat er veel spelletjes en boeken zijn die je tijdens je vakantie kunt gebruiken. De tuin is prachtig! De opzet van de tuin en de indeling van het huis zorgen ervoor dat iedereen relaxed zijn eigen fijne plekje op kan zoeken, terwijl je toch met elkaar in verbinding blijft. Dat vonden onze pubers (en wij) erg prettig. Ik kan dit huis iedereen aanraden!

Wij zijn in juni voor de derde keer met onze dochter (toen bijna 3 jaar oud) naar La Favienta Loca geweest. Het blijft een heerlijke plek waar we graag naar terugkeren.
In de omgeving zijn veel leuke stadjes om te bekijken. Théoule-sur-Mer heeft een lekker strand om met kleine kinderen naar toe te gaan (rustige zee en met een lang ondiep stuk) en in Antibes zit een leuk pretparkje speciaal voor peuters/kleuters: Kid’s Island, onderdeel van Marineland. Nice is een leuke stad en in Nice is Phoenix Park leuk om naar toe te gaan met kleine kinderen.
De omgeving van Fayence is prachtig. Je kunt mooie wandelingen maken in de omgeving van het Lac de Saint-Cassien en de omgeving tussen Fayence en Mons is ook prachtig.
Het huis is van alle gemakken voorzien en het zwembad heerlijk. Kortom: We komen graag weer terug!

What a wonderful house with a beautiful garden and a great pool. The house is well equipped, perfectly maintained and absolutely clean. The welcome service was perfect even arriving very late and we felt home from the very first moment.
During the whole stay the local housekeeper was available in case of any need.
The beautiful and cozy village of Fayence is in 10 to 15 minutes walking distance with its charming houses, nice shops and a great variance of restaurants.

Wat een heerlijk huis, we hebben genoten! Echt alles was super, de bedden, de tuin, het zitje bij het kleine kacheltje, alle spullen in de keuken, de boekenkast vol boeken en spelletjes. We hadden ook echt mazzel met het weer, hebben zelfs een hele middag in de zon liggen bakken op de bedjes in de tuin. We waren er maar vier dagen maar ik ben net zo uitgerust als na twee weken vakantie. Al komt dat misschien meer door het ontbreken van mannen en kinderen, maar dan nog ;).

Een heerlijk huis om in te vertoeven. Alles ziet er tip top uit en er is veel aandacht voor details . Heel sfeervol , waardoor je je al heel snel thuis voelt. Een oase van rust. Prachtig en goed verzorgde tuin, waar je ook in het vroege voorjaar kunt genieten van de zon. Ook het zwembad is paradijselijk aangelegd. Het huis is sfeervoller als feitelijk op de foto's weergegeven.
Ik kom hier graag nog een keer; heb heerlijk genoten als godin in frankrijk
