Are you looking for a property in Fayence?
While many tourists flock to the Var coastline, we recommend looking for countryside property that’s a bit removed – you’ll have more space and privacy while still being close to the sea and everything it has to offer.
Property in Fayence is perfectly situated in a lovely area of Provence, and the village is larger (and livelier) than many others in the region. And while the village does see its fair share of tourists, they tend to head in on a bus and then make their way back to the coast at the end of the day. Also note that this much tourism means you could purchase property that you plan to rent out throughout the year. Property for sale in Fayence ranges from traditional to modern, but just about every home here is warm and inviting.
Homes in Fayence are exceptional, and most of them are impressive all-around, from the interior to the exterior and the land the home is situated on. Even the homes that date back to the 18th century have been updated with modern amenities while retaining their original (and charming) features. Most properties you find here have something extra-special, too. For example, you may have a chapel, cinema, gym or olive grove. It’s common for homes in this area to have extras that extend the living space, too, like guest houses or private pools with pool houses. There may also be outbuildings that provide extra storage.
Your home will likely have multiple bedrooms, offering more than enough space for you, your entire family and even guests to spread out and have privacy. Light-filled rooms look out on the valley, village or sea, and bedrooms commonly have their own terraces. Property for sale in Fayence also tends to come with extra buildings on the property aside from the main house – consider setting up your office or workshop in one of them. Many villas for sale in Fayence have independent apartments, perfect for a guest or two to stay in when visiting. Look for a home with an inviting pool and an adjacent jacuzzi, plus plenty of surrounding space for lounging or having lunch poolside.
Fayence’s delightful village has a lot to explore, and there are numerous cafes and restaurants here for when you need a break and a bite to eat. It’s easy to get lost in the charming surroundings as you walk around, but notice the one-of-a-kind sites. For example, there’s a traditional stone lavoir in the Place Gabriel Peri, a 16th-century bread oven and elaborate carvings above many doorways. Several smaller hilltop villages surround Fayence (which is the largest in the area), all with pretty views and worthy of a day trip. Head to Callian, Montauroux, Seillans or Tourrettes for the afternoon. Or, explore two less-popular – yet still wholly appealing – nearby villages by visiting Bargemon or Saint-Paul-en-Foret.
With so much nature around you and the fantastic, mild Mediterranean climate, there’s never a lack of outdoor adventures to choose from. Hike, rock climb or kayak any time of the year. When you’re done getting your heart rate up for the day, head to one of the area’s many markets, exhibitions or festivals – or simply try regional cuisine and wine at a local restaurant. There are also plenty of boutiques for shopping and galleries for discovering artisan creations. And for the best view in Fayence, head to the clock tower, noticing the remnants of an old castle on your way.
