Holiday Rental House
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. Close to the swimming pool, two ancient “tilleul” lime trees provide a wonderfully shaded area for outdoor meals. The property is situated within walking distance of the village with its supermarkets and shops, and has its own off-road parking for several cars.Nearby attractions include watersports on the Lake St Cassien and the Siagne and Siagnole rivers; golf in the renowned Terre Blanche resort, and world-class gliding at the Fayence Aerodrome. Nothing beats local knowledge and as such should you wish to venture off the beaten track we can arrange an expert local guide (price on application).. We are delighted to say that we have been selected as one of Alastair Sawday's special places to stay for the second year running. More

Booked this last minute and could not have been happier. Pictures don't do it justice. Beautiful house and views. Great attention to detail including a welcoming bottle of wine! Would love to come again. Recommended.

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 places off the beaten track for a t...
Getting around
An easy 40-minute drive from Nice International Airport: Just follow the A8 towards Aix, then take the exit marked 'Fayence'.
