Fayence is the largest of five medieval towns perched above a valley. All the villages are extremely attractive with their own squares, restaurants and bars.
It’s situated 15km from junction 39 of the A8 motorway midway between the mountains and the sea, within easy reach of the attractions of the Cote d’Azur and Provence.
The location offers a unique diversity of the beaches and nightlife on the coast, together with the superb attractions of Provence inland – including the Gorges Du Verdon which is approximately 45 minutes away.
The town of Grasse, famous for its perfume industry, is just 20 minutes from the villa.
They villa is a short walk from the centre of Fayence which has all the shops required for day to day living. A short drive away, in the valley below there is an extensive range of shops and services together with large supermarkets.
In Fayence the market is on every Monday, Thursday and Saturday. The South of France offers several much larger markets – Antibes on Saturdays and Le Muy on Sundays. There are also very large markets in Italy and Ventigmiglia on Fridays and Saturdays. All of which are easily reached by car.
There are an enormous number of places to eat in the area, ranging from simple cafes through to Michelin star restaurants. There are several very good restaurants in Fayence within walking distance of the villa and many others within a short drive.
During the summer months there are extensive festivals and concerts in both Fayence, Tourettes and beyond.
