As bed-and-breakfasts go, it cuts a striking figure, with its towers and medieval tapestries and ancestral portraits, set among trees imported from around the world in the early 1800s, including American cedars and sequoias. The castle is filled with upholstered chairs, chandeliers, richly decorated wallpaper and fancy clocks. There was…

Overview of Viva

What Oliver loves…

  • This villa in the French Riviera is off the beaten track, and the local towns are just as charming as Nice or Cannes.
  • Swimmers will love the outdoor amenities - there’s a kitchenette and shower room in the pool house.
  • There’s a ping pong table to keep the kids entertained.

What you should know…

  • A car hire is highly recommended to explore the many nearby towns!
  • The nearest airport (in Nice) is 65 km away.

Daydreaming of a relaxed poolside holiday in the south of France? You’ll find it here, tucked away in the woods at this tranquil villa in the French Riviera. This family villa is set for serious swimmers and sunbathers - the pool house’s kitchenette, barbecue and shower room encourage outdoor living. Hop off the diving board and swim the afternoon away, among the well-manicured garden and trees beyond. When it’s time to eat, do it al fresco! Two leafy green terraces await to shade you and your spread.

Inside, the villa is modern and cool, with tiled floors and comfortable leather sofas beside the open gas fireplace. Large windows throughout draw you outside - you can slip out into the garden from each guest room, and the kitchen opens directly onto the terrace.

This holiday villa sits just 1.5 km outside of Saint Paul en Forêt, where you’ll find a few shops and restaurants, and (of course) a bakery. Take a trip to market at Fayence (6 km) where local crafts - pottery, stone and woodcarving - are king. For a bigger city experience, head to the casino and port town Saint Raphaël (28 km).

Map, Location & Local Information

The traditional village of Saint-Paul-en-Foret is just 1.5 km down the road from the property. Surrounded by oak and pine forests in a region known for its wine and olives, St. Paul has a few shops, a bakery and a couple of restaurants serving local cuisine. 

A great location for golf enthusiasts, the Four Seasons Terre Blanche Resort is just 12 km away and houses two high-quality 18-hole golf courses. 

There are plenty of opportunities to get active with the crystal clear lake and mountain streams of St. Cassien just a 30 minute drive away where you can swim, sail, windsurf, fish and enjoy a picnic with the family.  

Fayence (6 km)

Take a trip down the road to explore this medieval town with shady squares and pretty churches. Pottery, stone and woodcarving are all popular here and the market is a great place to have a look at what is being made along with fresh local produce (the market is open Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday). Make sure you take the time to climb the clocktower to enjoy its far-reaching and impressive views and join in a game of pétanque (similar to boules).

There are plenty of opportunities for hiking and cycling with dedicated trails travelling through the surrounding hills offering spectacular views. 

Flying and gliding lessons can be arranged easily with the local flying club of Fayence-Tourettes and enthusiasts from all over the world come to enjoy spectacular flights over this beautiful region. 

Tourettes (6 km)

Tourrettes is a quaint traditional village with pretty cafes in its little squares. The 11th century Church of Saint André is worth exploring along with the 14th century clocktower that stands at the top of the town offering wonderful views of the surrounds.

Saint Raphaël (28 km)

St Raphael is nestled on the French Riviera between St. Tropez and Cannes and offers fabulous beaches and watersports, perfect for a family day out. A coastal footpath leads you to the stunning volcanic mountain range of the Esterel Massif with its russet cliffs. 

Cannes, with its fancy shops, luxurious hotels and restaurants and amazing sandy beaches makes a good day trip and from there, you can easily reach both Nice and Antibes, two unmissable destinations on the French Riviera.

The Region

The Provençal way of life is one that’s deeply tempting for anyone who’s been feeling the need to get away from it all. This is a place where the Mediterranean weather turns fields of corn and lavender into picture-perfect backdrops, where you can sip your locally bought wine and enjoy the landscapes before heading out and tackling them head-on with a range of great activities for families, groups of friends and adventurous foodies. Better yet, our range of villas in Provence and chateaux and holiday homes in the French Riviera make the perfect base to explore this enchanting region!

Enjoy gourmet dining experiences with our new Chef Service!
We’re now offering our customers the chance to enjoy some unforgettable eats with our new Chef Service! Choose from booking a single sumptuous meal with a private chef for that special occasion, or hire a chef to cook your meals for all or part of your holiday - it’s as flexible as it is delicious.

A) Single Meal Service: A chef will travel to this villa and whip up a fantastic meal for you and your guests. The chef will arrive with all the necessary ingredients as well as the talent to turn them into something unforgettable. They’ll serve the meal and clear up afterwards - an easy and entertaining way to enjoy a top quality meal in your very own villa!

B) Full Chef Service: If you really want to kick back and relax, we can arrange for a chef to cater for the duration of your holiday (or part of it). With a range of options from simple family catering to full-on haute cuisine, we can organise a meal plan and a price to suit your needs. So why worry about self-catering when you can have everything taken care of?

Of course, before booking this service, we suggest you contact the property owner as they might already offer a similar cook or chef service in-house. To find out more simply visit www.oliverstravels.com/chefs.
