Within easy reach of all amenities, yet private and secluded, this house is in an outstanding position and is on the site of a long established property - probably one of the oldest in this part of Fayence- which is why it is in such a superb spot. You approach by a long driveway, which arrives at a parking near the round fish pond and fountain in front of the house.

You immediately are faced with a wonderful view to the North over the villages of Fayence and Mons, with layers of blue hills receding into the distance. In the other direction you can see across to St Paul en Foret and the rocks of the Gorge du Blavet. The house has paved terraces on 3 sides, and the pool is close to the house and easily accessible .

There is a shaded terrace outside the kitchen, from where you can look South past the pillars and vines onto the pool. Past the shade of the lime tree you can also see the stone which gives the house it's name - La Pierre Qui Chante. It is now made into a table, and gives a ringing sound when tapped with another stone.

The amount of land here protects you from the outside world, and gives children lots of space to explore without them having to leave the property. The land could be described as wooded parkland, and has a variety of indigenous trees, as well as fig and olive trees (which provide us with enough olive oil to last all year). There is also an abundance of wild herbs such as origano thyme and rosemary.

The therapeutic smell of the pines and lavender, combined with the music of the cicadas and occasional golden oriole during the day, and the tree frogs and scope owl in the evenings, make this a truly magical place.

There are interesting walks and stone walls, making it a wonderful spot to walk or do your early morning 'constitutional' before having breakfast on the terrace. To awaken each morning to the stunning views of the mountains lifts the spirits for the rest of the day.

The French Riviera - Cote d'Azur region

Long the dream location of Francophiles the world over, Provence with its views, light, colours and the smell of lavender in the air is intoxicating. The climate here is the best in France and visitors from Northern Europe come here to escape their own uncertain weather. Fortunately with all this popularity there is lots of space – especially if you venture here inland where rural life continues and you will find unspoilt countryside, vineyards and olive groves.

This part of the South of France, set back from the coast, has retained its beauty whilst having every facility imaginable.

Fayence is the main village in a group of 8 which constitute the 'Pays de Fayence'. It is an ideal size (5000 inhabitants in the commune) – large enough to have all the facilities and infrastructure, yet still small enough to keep its character and village atmosphere. There is a cultural centre and outside theatre where shows and plays are held, and dances and summer events are held in the market square outside the church.

Each of the villages has its own character, summer festivals, dances and events. There are markets, countless good restaurants, shops of all kinds, including supermarkets, bars, garages - and all of the villages provide free parking.

There are gorges, lakes, and rivers to explore, vineyards and olive mills, making Fayence a fantastic holiday area.

The house itself is between the villages of St.Paul en Foret (5 mins) and Fayence (10 mins). There is tennis, riding, golf, gliding nearby (all within 10 minutes), and also a large lake (St. Cassien) for water sports 20 minutes away.

Fayence is about half way between Draguignan and Grasse, and Nice Airport is only 50 minutes away.

all chapel.

However, this is a quiet area, approached through vineyards and olive groves, with expansive views over the foothills of the Southern Alps. The whole region has stunning scenery and the charming hill villages all have events and festivals during the summer.


Good restaurants abound, and there is a delightful variety of shops and markets. Lots to explore in the vicinity and further a-field. There are gorges, rivers and spectacular scenery.

Golf: There is now a very prestigious golf course close to us (less than 10mins away). It is the Terre Blanche Golf course and Four seasons resort. There is also the St Andreol Golf Course near Le Muy which is about 25 minutes away. This is a very easy 25 minutes as it is through countryside and vineyards with little traffic. If you need more information on either of these contact us. There are also courses at Mougins and Mandelieu.

The weather here in the South of France is the best in France, and enjoys the highest sunshine levels.
