A renovated sheepfold, with a panoramic sea view,
in the midst of the Var department, 20 minutes from Fayence
Fayence, VAR provence-cote-dazur 83440 FR

Location

This property is just outside a perched village, renowned for its history and its unobstructed view over the Mediterranean coast, as if the hills were graciously bowing all the way to the sea. This sector, but 20 minutes from Fayence, with its aerodrome, and an hour from Fréjus or Nice airport, is known for its discreet tranquillity. It also includes all amenities required for everyday life.

Description

Discreetly laid out on a vast, virtually flat, plot of land, a sheepfold dating from the 1930’s and an annexe house stand facing the valley which stretches out below all the way to the sea. The point of view is unique and an infinity swimming pool completes a feeling of being at one with the mountain and the sea.
This verdant, fertile land will never be disturbed as it is set at the end of the little plateau that bestows its view.
Absolute peace and quiet reigns constantly over these pastoral surroundings.

The sheepfold

This traditional, local stone construction, spanning approx. 110 m², was built in the 1930’s, with a Roman tile roof and wooden flooring.
It is directly accessed on the lower level from the garden. A reception area, with a kitchen, an alcove housing a study or television area, a cellar created in an old water tank and two bedrooms, sharing a shower room. A stairway goes upstairs to the main bedroom, with a bathroom, a dressing room and a south-facing terrace.
Authentic materials were used in keeping with traditional, local construction methods, whilst installing modern-day home comforts.
Existing planning permission would easily make it possible to double the floor surface area of the living room.


Guest house
Although constructed in a similar manner to the sheepfold, this house is smaller (52 m²). It comprises two bedrooms, with a bathroom and a separate toilet.
Garden
With land spanning more than 2 virtually flat hectares, marked by old walls and planted with numerous trees as well as a variety of vegetation, this garden resembles a pleasant maze of pathways within the property. A traditional French bowls pitch and, above all, a large, south-facing, heated, infinity swimming pool, with a view of the sea.
Workhouse
A 75 m², stone workshop provides potential for further conversion.
Pool-house
Ideally located between the sheepfold and the guest house, with direct access to each building, a covered summer kitchen and a large pergola comprise an outside area, forming a fair-weather extension of both houses. A terrace extends in front of the house.

Our opinion

Rare are hinterland properties such as this one, offering not only absolute peace and quiet but also a naturally panoramic view plunging down through the Var’s verdant hills, taking in the immensity of the sky and the sea.
It is possible to clearly distinguish the Lérins Isles and, very often, Corsica.
This tastefully renovated sheepfold and its annexe house exude the charm of authentic buildings, despite having all modern-day home comforts.
The magnificent infinity swimming pool confirms the delightful feeling of being far from everything, whilst being able to contemplate the French Riviera.
