In the beautiful hills of the Côte d'Azur, near some of the region’s most idyllic hilltop villages, Fresia I is a delightful villa with its own private swimming pool set in a lovely resort with great activities for all ages.

All on one level, the villa has been thoughtfully furnished with pretty touches as well as comfort in mind giving it a homely and Provençal feel. The living space is welcoming and bright with patio doors leading to an inviting al-fresco dining area whilst two of the three sweet bedrooms also have French windows opening out to the swimming pool. A modern bathroom and shower room add to the contemporary yet characterful vibe of this relaxed holiday home.

Eat meals al-fresco in the shaded porch looking out to the gardens and swimming pool, admiring the lavender, olive trees and Mediterranean greenery around you. Little steps lead down to the terrace where the perfect-sized pool is wonderful for lazy days splashing around and cooling off in the heat of the sun.

We are also delighted to offer the 3-bedroom Fresia II in the same resort, just a short stroll away. Both villas have been respectfully positioned to ensure you can make the most of the glorious gardens and views of the verdant hills yet the resort facilities are just a couple of minutes away.

This charming resort is a collection of rooms and apartments alongside private villas as well as two large communal pools, a restaurant and kid’s activities in the height of the summer. Or perhaps you would rather just have a lazy game of boules and an evening drink in the bar before returning to your own private villa and pool.

You are also surrounded by a wealth of incredibly beautiful perched villages where each day you will be able to discover a local market where you can truly soak up the idyllic ambience of this breath-taking region. This area also offers wonderful walking, cycling through the diverse landscapes, golf in incredible settings and even a world-renowned flying school in Fayence!

Water-lovers can try out some fantastic watersports at the nearby Lac de Saint Cassien or head south to some of the French Riviera’s finest beaches around Théoule-sur-Mer and the glamorous city of Cannes, just forty minutes away.

Whether you wish to explore this captivating region or just relax with family or friends in the resort, Fresia I is a charming holiday home for your stay in this beautiful part of southern France.

Both Fresia I and Fresia II are set in a holiday resort just a couple of minutes' drive from a charming hilltop village in the Var department of Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur, 30km from the dreamy beaches of the French Riviera.

The nearest village, which can be reached on foot via an unpaved road or by car in just a few minutes, boasts a bakery, a couple of restaurants, bar and café as well as a handful of lovely shops. It’s full of character with pretty winding lanes leading up to a medieval castle and wonderful views out over the surrounding forested hills. There are some stunning hikes leading from the village, both in the Var department and up towards the incredible Alpes-Maritimes region and cycling is another popular pastime (bike hire is available at the resort).

Other wonderful hilltop villages nearby include Montauroux (4km), perched in the hills, with its street market on a Tuesday, Fayence (7km) with its charming streets, beautiful cafés plus a weekly Farmer’s market selling all sorts of local delights and Seillans (12km), one of France’s ‘Plus Beaux Villages’ where you can explore cobbled lanes, sit in terraces shaded by beautiful plane trees, discover ancient fountains and gaze at amazing views. In this region, every day you will be able to find a local village hosting a market where you can truly soak up the idyllic ambience of this breath-taking region.

There are some great watersports at the nearby Lac de Saint Cassien (16km) such as pedaloes, rowing boats or just perfect picnic spots where you can swim in the lake. You are also not so far from some of the French Riviera’s finest beaches with the coastline around Mandelieu-La Napoule, Saint-Raphaël, Cannes and Théoule-sur-Mer only forty minutes away or so.

Indeed, the fashionable city of Cannes (40km) is a great day out; walk along the city promenade, La Croisette, and admire the glamour that surrounds you. The city has a brilliant nightlife, some superb restaurants and a great choice of lovely sandy beaches, both public and private.

The perfume capital of the world, Grasse (25km), is also just over half an hour away whilst inland the rugged interior offers magical places such as  Gourdon (38km), Gorges du Loup (36km) where you can swim from the rocks or Caussols (35km) you will find an observatory in this stuning location. The Gorges du Verdon (88km) are one of France’s greatest ‘must see wonders’ and a stunning day trip.

For a truly special experience there is a Gliding school in nearby Fayence, voted by Conde Nast Traveller to be the best gliding in the world! For a slightly lazier day, golf-lovers will appreciate the world-renowned Terre Blanche Golf (8km) just a short drive away.
