So hidden even the local taxis couldnt find us!
Amazing holiday, just was too short and would love to come back again!
Lovely hosts that want you to enjoy their property!
It was such a pleasure to meet Mally and her lovely, smiling family. They were respectful of our home and had a wonderful sense of humour. They were the perfect guests and we hope to have the pleasure of welcoming them again at a future date. They also did us a favour by picking and eating the fresh figs so that they wouldn't fall on the ground and make a mess. The cat, Miss Daisy, missed them and walked around looking for them after they left so they must have all got along very well!
Beautiful house in a picturesque location
I would say the pictures do the house justice. It certainly has the French feel compared to somewhere ultra modern. It has everything you could need for a self catering holiday.
There are no local shops that you can walk to but a 5-10 minute drive will take you to plenty of shops, bakeries and restaurants.
I would recommend staying here if you want that true French feel in a lovely quiet location and you are happy to drive to places.
Note that a rule is not to get in the swimming pool with sun cream on to prevent staining the pool liner. This can be hard work if you have children as you constantly have to put suncream on them and then take it off again as my child loved the swimming pool.
We loved feeding the fish and their cat Miss Daisy.
I can certainly see why there are a lot of good reviews.
Pros: Beautiful home and location, all the amenities you need including a lovely swimming pool. Pleasant British couple owners who live close by for any support.
Cons: We arrived on a Sunday around 1pm and found that no basic food & drink essentials were provided. This is the first self catering place we have paid for via a holiday home website where the owner has not provided some basics such as milk, butter and bread. Basically the fridge was bear. Luckily we found somewhere open past 4pm so that we could eat and drink, more importantly for my daughter.
Towels are very coarse due to their age. I would recommend bringing your own if you prefer soft towels.
Make sure you do not mark/scratch or stain any towels or kitchen utensils when you are there as the couple are very particular and will charge you from your deposit regardless of some of these items being somewhat worn and old already.
We only make deductions from the security deposits in exceptional circumstances when guests have disrespected our home and items have been broken or damaged to such an extent that they need replacing. We have only done so on four occasions in fifteen years of letting because guests usually replace them themselves before they leave. Unfortunately when we make a justified reduction a guest may overeact.
Too good to be true - but it is!
La pierre qui chante is truly a hidden paradise!
The house is marvelously pleasant, we felt at home immediately. Four lovely bedrooms, a very well equipped kitchen and an ample and cosy living room, we barely used because of the wonderful weather.
The lay of the house and the pool is spectacular: views all around. The pictures on the website do not do it enough credit. It was our own private peaceful paradise. Star watching in the evening by the pool. Drinking rose in all the different seating arrangements at the various terrases.
The pool is absolutely gorgeous and plenty of space around it to enjoy the sun or shade.
Marjie and Tony are perfect hosts: showing us around and taking wonderful care of us.
I would recommend La pierre qui chante to everyone!
Marlies, Bernard and family were the guests that every host wishes to have. They took care of and showed respect for our property. Miss Daisy, the house cat was pampered and returned the favour by accepting them as if they were us. They were friendly and very appreciative guests and we enjoyed Bernard's wonderful sense of humour. It was such a pleasure to meet and get to know them and we would be delighted to welcome them back at any time, in fact, we sincerely hope that they will return.
Another wonderful week in Fayence
Our Norwegian family of four, two teenage friends of our son plus two of our best friends, a married couple from Sweden, spent a week at La Pierre Qui Chante during this year’s summer vacation. We took, in other words, full advantage of the villa.
It was good to be back. So many things in this world change rapidly. La Pierre Qui Chante, Fayence and Provence doesn´t. Thanks!
It has been four years since we were here last time, but it felt like yesterday.
Tony and Marjie welcomed us like last time. Informed us of everything we needed to know, but it only took 5 minutes this time as we already knew the place and the surroundings. As Tony is a gentleman, he followed up by a few phone calls the next days, to make sure that everything was all right with us. Everything in the villa and the property is well looked after, well equipped and has everything you need.
The total privacy and the property’s unparalleled location makes it a private paradise. Relaxing, swimming in the pool, barbequing in the evening, enjoying a glass of wine while looking at the wonderful scenery makes you forget the everyday buzz. I (the father of the house) am a runner, and a morning run in the nearby forests where you can smell the summer in Provence is highly recommended.
We were happy to find Miss Daisy (the property cat) still around, the children loved it, even if she was hunting more on the night-time than last time in 2014.
We shopped at Super U Fayence (supermarket) every day. Ate lunch in Fayence twice. Enjoyed a day trip to Cannes one day and visited a local Vineyard in one of the neighbouring villages another day.
Our daughter and one went horse riding at Area Equestre at Saint Paul, just 15 minutes’ walk from La Pierre Qui Chante.
But, most of the time was spent at La Pierre Qui Chante. We played table tennis, had a family Petanque tournament every evening, before we rounded the evening off in the living room with a good book and a game of Yahtzee.
We will be back again, and we don’t think it is 4 years till next time.
Thank you, Tony and Marjie.
It was good to see Christian and his family again. They took good care of the house and also Miss Daisy who was very pleased that she got regular brushing and that the meals were on time. They were a very pleasant group and are always welcome.
Un petit coin de paradis
Séjour très agréable, hôtes disponibles et accueillants. Maison parfaite pour 2 familles ( nos étions 8).
Nous sommes trés content que vous avez apprécié vos vacances à La Pierre Qui Chante. Nous vous remercions d'avoir laissé notre maison parfaitement propre et bien rangée. Vous étiez les locataires parfaits.
Lang de droom locatie van Francophiles over de hele wereld, de Provence met zijn standpunten, licht, kleuren en de geur van lavendel in de lucht is bedwelmende. Het klimaat hier is de beste in Frankrijk en bezoekers uit Noord-Europa komen hier om hun eigen onzekere weer te ontsnappen. Gelukkig is met al deze populariteit is er veel ruimte - vooral als je hier wagen het binnenland, waar het landelijke leven gaat verder en u zult ongerepte natuur, wijngaarden en olijfbomen te vinden.
Dit deel van het zuiden van Frankrijk, terug van de kust te stellen, heeft zijn schoonheid behouden, terwijl met alle faciliteiten denkbaar.
Fayence is het belangrijkste dorp in een groep van 8 die vormen de 'Pays de Fayence'. Het is een ideale grootte (5000 inwoners in de gemeente) - groot genoeg om alle faciliteiten en infrastructuur, maar toch klein genoeg om zijn karakter en dorpse sfeer te houden. Er is een cultureel centrum en buiten theater waar shows en toneelstukken worden gehouden, en dansen en in de zomer evenementen worden gehouden in de markt plein buiten de kerk.
Elk van de dorpen heeft zijn eigen karakter, zomerfestivals, dansen en evenementen. Er zijn markten, talloze goede restaurants, winkels van alle soorten, zoals supermarkten, bars, garages - en al van de dorpen bieden gratis parkeergelegenheid.
Er zijn kloven, meren en rivieren om te verkennen, wijngaarden en olijfbomen molens, het maken van Fayence een fantastische vakantie gebied.
Het huis zelf is tussen de dorpen van St. Paul en Foret (5 minuten) en Fayence (10 minuten). Er is tennis, paardrijden, golfen, zweefvliegen in de buurt (allemaal binnen 10 minuten), en ook een groot meer (St. Cassien) voor watersporten op 20 minuten afstand.
Fayence is ongeveer halverwege tussen Draguignan en Grasse, en de luchthaven van Nice ligt op slechts 50 minuten afstand.
