Fayence Property Listings and Info

For buying and selling property in Fayence

Prepare to be dazzled

Fayence is located in the heart of the Camandre Valley in the Var department of Southern France. It's a small town, perched atop a hill, with over 4000 inhabitants. It is perhaps one of the most colourful towns France has to offer. The red rocks and the yellow mimosa blend ! in wonderfully with the olive trees that surround the town.

Made in Fayence

The main economy of the town is still based on crafts, while tourism is also the source for much of its income. Visitors to the town will be able to pick up a number of home made artefacts from wood, stone, metal, cloth or porcelain.

A bird's eye view

Despite the town's size, there is plenty to do in Fayence. It is perfect for those who are after a thrilling experience and are not afraid of heights. The town caters for both gliding and hand gliding. This is a great way to take in the dynamics of Fayence and the surrounding area. If that's not your thing then don't worry. The best way to take in the peacefulness and charm of the town is still on foot.

Do the people of Fayence wear watches?

Fayence is a maze of steep and narrow lanes and the town has preserved its medieval atmosphere. If you follow the hill to the top then you'll find the remains of a castle that once stood here defending this fortified town. You'll also find the clock towering over the rest of the town here - there is never any excuse to be late in Fayence! There are two churches. The Church of St-Jean Baptiste was built in the 16th Century while the Parish Church was built in the 18th Century.

How do I get there?

Flying there is easy as there are regular flights into both Nice and Toulon from the UK. If you're travelling by car then you should turn off on the D562 between Draguignan and Grasse. You'll be able to see the town on the hilltop above you. Alternatively the TGV train service arrives in Marseille from Paris.

your questions...

1. Question about finding a property minding company (added 10/3/15)...

Hi - we own a property in Fayence, Var. We have leased the property on a buy to let scheme for 10 years. At the end of March we are taking back the keys and renting the property ourselves. Could you advise on an agency who would sort out the gas, electricity, tv licence, water etc? Thank you.

Our reply...

Thanks for contacting us, though I can only suggest you have a look at our Business Directory for agents/companies who could help with this. You could also perhaps ask your Mairie for their advice.

Should anyone reading this be able to help, please do get in touch.
