Flayosc is a typical provençal medieval village with its large shady square, its fountains, old church, rambling rooftops. It is the perfect location to relax and enjoy the beauty of Provence. It is far enough away from the busy tourist spots on the coast, but near enough to the local town of Draguignan with all its amenities. Flayosc is also a well serviced village in itself with a provençal market every Monday morning which has a great array of local produce. There are innumerable cafes where you can sit on the terrace, sip a glass of local wine and watch the world go by. The village can provide everything one needs: excellent shops for food, bakeries, butcher, grocery and fruit/veg shops, pharmacy, bank, several restaurants, laundry/drycleaners and wine cooperative. It also has a very good traiteur (delicatessen) who prepares excellent regional dishes, thus saving cooking at home. It is a village which is a pleasurable in the winter months as it is in the summer. The hustle and bustle continues year round, thanks to a very active local committee, there is lots of entertainment throughout the year including winter, such as antiques markets, concerts, fêtes, and fireworks.
