A superb, well equipped apartment in the idyllic Provençal countryside
We stayed with Judith and Keith for 7 nights and felt lucky to have discovered this little gem. The apartment was very comfortable, with everything you could think of to hand. There was no shortage of glasses, cooking equipment, coffee machine even a juicer which made us feel relaxed and able to make what ever we wanted. We also need to mention how comfortable the bed was. Crisp white linen and a firm bed meant we slept like babies, waking up to the glorious sound of the birds and the sunshine!
We arrived at approx 7pm to find a very warm welcome and a fridge full of local wine, milk, water, orange juice, eggs, mustard and fresh bread and croissants for the following morning. Judith and Keith have been hosting for a long time and the attention to detail shows. The apartment itself is perfect for two people with different areas for alfresco dining, lounging on the patio or chilling beside the beautiful pool area next to the outdoor kitchen. Wherever we positioned ourselves the views across Judith and Keith’s 70 olive trees were stunning!
The area of Flayosc is beautiful with stunning walks through the vineyards, and a village where you can buy everything you need including the delicious local cooperative wine. It is a great base for exploring other villages, the lake and the mountains. It’s just over a 1 hour drive from Nice airport so you get the benefit of being away from it all without having to commit to hours and hours of driving. With the help of Judith and her knowledge of the area we have already booked to return with our family next summer for 4 weeks in a local villa. We can’t wait!
A big thank you to Judith and Keith for everything! We look forward to seeing you soon!
Thank you so much for this fantastic review - we are delighted that you enjoyed your stay in Flayosc so much - you were the very best guests and we loved your enthusiasm for this very special village. We are thrilled that you have chosen to stay for the summer in a client's villa to celebrate your special birthday next year. We are really looking forward to seeing you again.
A little piece of rural bliss with suburban comforts
This is a place to totally switch off whilst still having easy access to walks, other villages, wonderful restaurants and great food. Judith and Keith were most generous with their advice and delicious welcome package. Although the property has a certain feel of lived-in untidyness to it, it was a pleasure to return after a long day of sightseeing. Thank you both of letting us share your "home". We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
Thank you very much for your review - we are delighted that you enjoyed your stay and hope that the rest of your holiday is good.
Stunning location with great facilities
Keith and Judith are fantastic hosts. Apartment is well equipped with everything you would need for a relaxing break.
Thanks very much for your review - we hope to see you again before too long
A wonderful piece of laid-back, back-country Provence!
As other reviewers have all said, Judith and Keith are wonderful hosts, and they have created a treasure of a cottage that is perfect for a couple wanting a retreat in rural France.
The apartment is small but has everything anyone could want for even a long stay: all the basic necessities are there, but also everything else one could want (from candles and matches to portable table and chairs perfect for picnics on the road). The bed is good, the shower fine, and the kitchen was so well-stocked that we didn't need to go to the store for the first 36 hours.
Better than the apartment, though, is the site. The pool area is beautiful, open to the sky and countryside, and equipped with deliciously comfortable pool beds and heated water. The apartment's private terrace is also lovely, truly private, and well-equipped. All the photos and lists on the website are accurate, so please review them closely to see what Judith and Keith offer.
And we loved Flayosc. As Judith says, it is a "shabby" Provencal village, but that is what we loved about it. As genuine a perched village as its more famous sisters, it offers four excellent restaurants, several cafes, a lovely Monday market, a spectacular traiteur specializing in fresh pasta, and everything else one could wish for-- without the postcards, tourists, souvenir shops, and crowds. Real people live here along with some expats, which is precisely what we were looking for.
We loved staying here, but a few reservations keep me from giving the apartment five stars. One is the number of steps (without railings) necessary to reach the private terrace and pool area. Another is that the "15-minute" walk to town is a long 15 minutes with some uphill stretches, which made us resort to using the car after trying the walk twice. And the third is that there is a touch of the unfinished construction site about the house. Workers, debris, empty containers and pool equipment lying about, untrimmed shrubbery and dead summer plantings that have not been cleared, the residue of summer outdoor living, and the mess that goes along with two large dogs keep it from being as perfect a retreat as it could be. We came at the end of the season, and I know the hosts have plans for continued improvements, so I would not hesitate to return earlier in the season when the outdoor space looks like the photos (while the pool and garden are still being maintained) and once the step railings and other construction projects are finished.
Many thanks for this great review and for booking Les Oliviers. We are delighted that you enjoyed Flayosc which is just as provençal as a village can be. Just to respond to your reservations: we have been waiting for our blacksmith to provide the rails for some time - this is Provence after all!! The garden is always maintained. However, you arrived at the end of a very hot season - in fact you enjoyed summer temperatures whilst you were here in early autumn - and we have not had any rain since early May. Everywhere is brown and untidy looking but we do not want to do a big clean up until the temperatures cool down a little and so avoid over-stressing plants that are already hanging on for dear life. It is worth mentioning that any construction projects at Les Oliviers are only undertaken during the winter when we do not have any guests. We would also want to point out that our 'two large dogs' are choccy labs just in case anyone reading this might think that they are less gentle breeds. We hope to see you again at any time of the year you wish to come - every month of the year is great here in paradise!!
Kleine Ferienwohnung mit netten Gastgebern
Pluspunkte ist die gut ausgestattete Küche mit Essplatz sowie die kleine, lauschige Terrasse mit Grill und Liegemöglichkeit sind in jedem Fall der schöne Swimmingpool, die Möglichkeit, Pétanque, Federball und Basketball zu spielen.
Wir konnten unsere 6 Nächte nicht wirklich genießen, da für uns - beides große Personen - das Bett und das Sofa zu klein waren. Insgesamt ist die Unterkunft klein und dadurch nicht so komfortabel, dass man sich bei schlechtem Wetter darin aufhalten möchte. Die Trennung von Dusche und Toilette, die beide ebenfalls sehr klein sind, ist nicht wirklich gelungen.
Ansonsten haben wir uns von den Gastgebern, Judith und Keith, sehr freundlich aufgenommen und betreut gefühlt. Hervorheben möchten wir das "Welcome-Paket" mit Kaffee, Butter, frischen Croissants, Brot und Marmelade sowie Milch. Das war wirklich super!
A real gem
We thoroughly enjoyed our two week stay in Judith & Keith's apartment. It was ideally situated for trips to St. Tropez, to the many pretty, local villages - including Lorgues, Toutour and Villacroix, and only an hour from Lac Du St Croix. The 'Train des Pignes' cycle route is nearby, but not recommended in 34 degree heat! The pool area was stunning and very much appreciated due to the 30+ temperatures throughout our stay. Judith & Keith were very welcoming and willingly shared their knowledge of the area - including tips on local restaurants and places to visit. The apartment was well equipped, with many extras including excellent air-conditioning. A very generous welcome pack was provided on our arrival. We were able to completely relax and spent many hours by the pool or on our patio after our explorations of the area.
We found that nothing was too much trouble for our hosts, and we would certainly recommend a stay at Les Oliviers to recharge your batteries.
We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay at Les Oliviers and hope very much to see you again in the future. Many thanks for the great review.
Le village est bien équipé avec 2 petits supermarchés, poissonnerie, boucherie, épicerie fine, 3 boulangeries, pharmacie, 3 médecins, dentiste, banque, bureau de poste, librairies et boutique de souvenirs, 4 bars font de la restauration (à ma connaissance) et 8 restaurants ! Un célèbre restaurant de truffes se trouve dans le village voisin à 15 minutes en voiture.
