The Property is great with 4 good sized double bedrooms and great bathrooms so easy for sharing as well as family's . The gardens are lovely and lead down to a cascading stream with natural crystal clear plunge pools . There is a lovely pool and pool house with outdoor kitchen and BBQ area . The view is to die for , right over the escarpment and forest . Good facilities in nearby Feyance and a good little bar with a view in neighbouring Tourettes make this a location I would love to visit again and again . NB we also found it extremely dog friendly . . Don t hesitate ....Book it
This was our second visit to Les Cascades, having been inspired to return after our first trip last summer. Paul & Guillemette are on site (and immensely helpful) for any questions about the local area, but in a very unintrusive way.
The views from the terrace, where we ate breakfast are truly spectacular; terrace seating area a special spot to sit and read; and then there's the pool area......... infinity pool overlooking the valley; barbeque; petanque pit and separate WC and kitchen make it very easy to chill out here!
Les Cascades is named after the stunning waterfalls that run through the grounds: natural plunge pools to leap into make for a fun, refreshing and exciting experience for children and adults alike.
The little town square in the neighbouring village Tourrettes is a mere 10 minute walk down the gorgeous drive and up the hill through the artists' houses. Again, views across the wider valley from here are unrivalled.
Then the next village Fayence, only 5 minutes further than Tourrettes, has a boulangerie; fabulous restaurant Le Temps des Cerises; mini supermarket and pharmacy - all very easy to walk or drive to.
Heaps of restaurants and local places to visit (check my review in the visitors' book when you stay); and the local Lake (Lac de St. Cassien) is a perfect spot to spend the day lolling on sunloungers; or venturing out into the lake for a swim / pedalo / kayak. There's also an inflatable water park here for extra fun.
In short: a paradise we will definitely return to!
Third trip to les villas cascades and every time it gets better and better. Close to everything. Walking distance to two beautiful towns and a short drive to the whole French Riviera. The owners are phonomenal, kind, generous people who give you all the privacy you could want but are there to help in an instant. Could not recommend any higher!
From the moment we arrived, the Villa cast a spell that one has to experience to even begin to describe. From gliders soaring overhead, to the veranda overlooking the valley, the infinity pool and barbecue area, the stream flowing below the villa, to the town of Fayence itself, it was a magical experience. And it became even more special when the owners invited us to their home for a champagne toast to our anniversary, I would highly recommend the villa to anyone looking for a once in a lifetime experience.
Lovely house, spectacular views and good sized infinity pool with kitchen area by the pool as well. House spotless and grounds well maintained. Owners live on site, friendly, informative, available for help if required but very unobtrusive. They are happy to advise on restaurants etc and Paul gave me a tour of the village.
On a practical note the pool is on a different level from the house and there are a number of wide steps involved. Not suitable for a wheelchair user and would be difficult for those who struggle with mobility. However if there was anyone in your party with mobility problems you could discuss with the owner.
Otherwise we would happily recommend this property and we would certainly return.
