Elegant villa with private pool in Provence

The Old Forge at night.
1 of 23The Old Forge at night.
Holiday Rental House -
4 Bedrooms , 4 Bathrooms , Sleeps 8
Fayence, Var, Provence-Alpes-Cote d'Azur
Prices reduced until January 2017.

Ideally situated in the charming Provencal village of Fayence in the Var department, La Vieille Forge is an authentic, lovingly converted 18th century house that was once the village Smithy (as the horseshoes found around the grounds can attest). Both the house and garden have great charm and are an ideal holiday gateway within easy reach of the beaches of the Côte d'Azur and the stunning foothills of the Southern Alps. The house is light and spacious and comprises 4 large air-conditionned bedrooms (3 doubles, 1 twin). 3 of these have their own en-suite bathroom. The house sleep 8 comfortably but can accommodate up to 10 guests. Unusually for a village house, La Vieille Forge has a private swimming pool and sizeable garden. The house has stunning views over the Esterel Hills and the plain of Fayence...

We found the villa to be very beautiful. The kitchen/dining area reminded me of pictures of old farmhouses in Europe, but this one had all the new appliances needed to make our stay very pleasant. The rooms are very large, the beds comfortable and the...More

About the neighbourhood
Fayence lies in the east Var. One of eight 'perched' villages, in the foot of the southern Alps, yet only 35 minutes to the coast - take your pick from Cannes, Nice or Antibes. Breathtaking views and a paradise for ramblers and hikers. But plenty of cultural places of interest too - visit the ancient Roman aqueduct, or the remains of a 'dolman' - an ancient monument. You could spend days visiting all the historic churches. Our favourite is 'Notre Dame des Cyprès' - dating from the 11th century, but still in use today - we should know, we got married there!

Fayence and its neighbouring village of Tourrettes boast a cinema, an 'espace culturel' where you can see concerts and plays, and a fantastic array of shops and restaurants. Ask us, and we can suggest pla...
