The Provence region
The Côte d'Azur, often known in English as the French Riviera, is the Mediterranean coastline of the south eastern corner of France, extending from Menton near the Italian border in the east to either Hyères or Cassis in the west. This coastline was one of the first modern resort areas.
The French Riviera also contains the seaside resorts of Cannes, Antibes, Juan-les-Pins, Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat, Beaulieu-sur-Mer, Cap-d'Ail, Fréjus, Saint-Raphaël, and Saint-Tropez, and surrounds the principality of Monaco.
Flayosc is a lively village with an excellent range of shops: bakers, butchers, fish mongers, greengrocers, 2 mini supermarkets, chemist, hairdressers, laundry, gift shops as well as a handful of specialist shops. There are several good restaurants and cafes. You can purchase local wine from the village wine co-operative as well as award winning olive oil from the age-old olive mill. An English speaking doctor has a walk-in surgery in the village and there is an excellent modern hospital at Draguignan 5 miles away.
On Monday, there is a small market in the village square and there are several large markets on other days in nearby villages - a list of these is displayed in the house. Most Sundays, you can find a Brocante/Flea market in one or other of the local villages, during the summer months there are many art exhibitions and concerts to enjoy.
Further afield going south you are just 30-40 minutes drive from the Mediterranean - St Maxime, St Tropez, Frijus, St Raphael and Cannes. Heading north you will find Europe's Grand Canyon (Gordes Verdon) which is great for picnics, sailing, or a leisurely pedaloe up the beautiful gorge.

"A relaxing retreat, home from home"
A beautiful house off the main road. If a quiet holiday with friends and family is what you are after then this is the place for you.
The owner is very friendly and amenable, which made for a thoroughly relaxing stay.
Easily accessible by car to the most fabulous lake for a chilled day of swimming and sunbathing and perfect for children of all ages.
Would definitely recommend this property.
