Holiday villa in southern France Flayosc - La Sagesse is a beautifully renovated Provencal Mas in southern France, situated on the outskirts of the charming village of Flayosc. Spread over three floors, the open and spacious layout combined with cool decor creates a modern feel to the interior, its original character retained in the beamed ceilings, open fireplaces and classic antique furniture pieces.
High in the hills of the Var region, Flayosc offers a selection of shops, bars and restaurants. Lorgues hosts the best market in the area each Tuesday, and you can' t leave without enjoying an evening meal in Aups, truffle capital of Provence. There are many beautiful towns and villages in this region such as Cotignac, Salernes, Villecroze and Tourtour, known as the ' village in the sky', with breathtaking views and stunning sunsets.
This renovated Mas in southern France is ideal for touring; Entrecasteaux with its marvellous chateau and gardens and the 12th century Cistercian monastery, Abbey de Thoronet, are a definite must for sightseeing, whilst the Lac de Ste Croix and spectacular Gorge du Verdon offer activities ranging from wind surfing to mountain biking. Both St Tropez and Aix-en-Provence make for ideal day trips.
What I love about this house - apart from the obvious cosy yet elegant feeling of an old farmhouse and its lovely situation - is how clever the owners have been to arrange the open-plan living areas so that you have the feeling of being in separate rooms: everybody can be together but still be in their own space. … cooking, eating, reading or watching TV. A short drive away you have the most charming village of Flayosc, which is one of the few pretty villages with shops and restaurants open throughout the year. There are several good restaurants to recommend such as La Fleur de Thym, Le Cigalon and L’Oustaou, all in the centre of the village.
A spacious open-plan area, with French doors to large terrace, runs the length of the house, joining the living, dining and kitchen areas.

We had a beautiful holiday!
We enjoyed your lovely house and the beautiful views and the pool! We liked to eat outside on one of the terraces. Th weather was nice and almost everyday we used the barbecue.
We went to the Gorges du Verdon, Saint Tropez, Port Grimaud, Grasse and Monaco (by train)
Very much to do and see in a lovely region
Thanks for everything

We spent a wonderful week in your beautiful home in perfect surroundings. We enjoyed the ease of the house, the many shade spots, outdoor bbqing and the shooting stars. We also explored the local restaurants, markets and a day kayaking and swimming at a waterfall.
