very warm thank you for such a wonderful villa
By Neena B on 27-Dec-2017
very warm thank you for such a wonderful villa for our week in France. Everything was spotlessly clean on arrival and the welcome drink was most appreciated! really refreshed when we left (although we really did not want to leave!). Most definitely be back. Your pool is fantastic.The outdoor kitchen and dining area also and made for very relaxed alfresco evenings. The description on the web matched the reality. Thank you once again for the hospitality and we will be back again.
Thank you so much for letting
By Janet on 27-Dec-2017
s use your beautiful villa. Also a big thank you for the welcoming gifts of Champagne, wine eggs and bread, all graetly enjoyed!
We think your villa is by far the best equipped we have ever stayed in; and we have experienced a few. Love the summer kitchen, BBQ and pool and we didnt want to leave. We will return sooner rather than later!
This is not a holiday villa
By Lyn on 27-Dec-2017
it is a real home and we really enjoyed our incredibly comfortable and restful week here. The pool, summer kitchen with BBQ extensive and ecclectic library have been much enjoyed. The welcome gifts made it even more special.
Be back very soon!
A very nice family stay
By MandM C on 27-Dec-2017
in this beautiful and very well equipped and maintained villa. Nicely designed house, beautiful garden and external areas (incl summer kitchen). Good service and all details looked after, including chilled drinks in the fridge on arrival. Recommended.
a terrific holiday villa and location
By Fraser Family on 27-Dec-2017
Upon arrival we found all the previous reviews to be perfectly true. A large characterful home with great outdoor amenities to use not just a rental villa. Steve and Ariadne as hosts are a huge plus from the initial welcome and explanation to the fresh eggs appearing some mornings and delightful social interaction ( if desired ).
Fayence we found to be a well positioned and well served town.
A terrific holiday on all counts which we thoroughily recommend to others.
A stunning home from home
By GG on 27-Dec-2017
We stayed at Steve and Ariadne's villa as a family group of 6 adults for a week in August, and never wanted to leave. We had the most fantastic holiday here; it is a truly superb, immaculately kept villa. welcomed by both Steve and Ariadne, and given a comprehensive tour of the villa, bread, eggs and some bottles of wine very well received! Our stay was perfect, and we would be delighted to return again in the future; I can wholeheartedly recommend Steve and Ariadne and their beautiful villa.
The villa is great
By Tom G on 27-Dec-2017
has a wonderful homely feel, along with impressively large well stocked kitchen, lots of living space, fantastic outdoor space that the villa had to offer. The south facing pool and hottub with plenty of space to laze around it, and the outdoor kitchen: oven, fridges and a much needed ice machine. terrace upstairs was a wonderful place to spend the evenings.it has a countryside feel yet is only a short walk from Fayence immediate area is lovely and quiet you'll never want to leave the villa!
"Home from Home": but with many luxuries.
By Tanya K on 09-Aug-2017
You will not be disappointed if you book this villa. We loved it as a family with three teenagers. Everything thought of by Steve. Great location to visit Cannes, Monte Carlo and Nice.
The spacious villa was a wonderful
By Jean on 21-Jul-2017
"home from home" equipped with everything you could possibly want.. It was spotlessly clean with lovely fresh flowers on the dining room table. Although Steve the owner lived nearby, privacy during your stay is respected .It proved to be an excellent base for many visits to the coast or the inland villages. However we also enjoyed relaxing round the pool and playing boules or table tennis. The pretty village of Fayence has everything you need on a self catering holiday - a market, boulangerie a
Photographs on website - very accurate.
By Valerie on 21-Jul-2017
Directions to villa - very accurate.. so a great start which just got better and better. The Villa is so well equipped we wanted for nothing more. The numerous outside seating area allowed everybody space and privacy. The library provided a wealth of reading materials so no kindle or books to carry.
The location of the villa is a great starting point for trips although we only wanted to leave for one full day and that was to Monaco/Monte Carlo and Cannes on the Train.. with Steve providing directions and advice.

Pristine and Amazingly Equipped
By Peter And Rosemary on 14-Jul-2017
On our arrival at this property we were warmly welcomed by Steve and Ariadne, who proceeded to give us a tour of the villa, explaining how everything worked encourage us to make ourselves completely at home and to enjoy the provided (including bread, and fresh eggs from their own hens).
The house itself was pristine, amazingly equipped and very tastefully furnished. There's a vast and eclectic selection of books and DVDs. The pool is a perfect size
Could say more but run out of space!
oasis of charm, a taste of paradise!
By Andy H on 14-Jul-2017
We obviously reiterate all the wonderful comments of previous guests. This is an oasis of charm, a taste of paradise. We spent so much time enjoying the villa that we didn’t go exploring that as much as we should have done! The house was much more than a home from home; in fact it was more home than home. We all had a really restful stay; only sad that it was only one week! Fayence is a beautiful town with great restaurants. Thank you, Steve and Arianne for everything, your hospitality and kind
By Flavio on 08-Jul-2017
Siamo degli appassionati della natura e ci piace molto la villa Rose de Vents Vi consigliamo anche di visitare i villaggi di Seillan, Caillan, Tourrettes e Fayence che si trovano nei dintorni. Dopo una giornata calda, alla villa in un’atmosfera pacifica e al fresco stavamo benissimo. Ci siamo sentiti come a casa. Le camere sono molto curate anche nei dettagli ed ritorneremo da loro, in questa villa bellissima per fare delle nuove
scoperte. Grazie ancora per questo soggiorno meraviglioso
It has been lovely coming back .

Your home is really one of a kind. We have been on many holidays abroad but staying here has by far got to be the best! Thank you again for the wonderful fresh eggs from your chickens.

we were warmly welcomed by Steve and Ariadne
By Peter on 10-Jun-2017
who proceeded to give us a tour of the villa, our arrival coincided with a music festival we were concerned about finding somewhere to eat that evening. Steve immediately rang one of the restaurants managed to reserve for us. Steve was available for help or advice. one night an electrical storm, next morning there had been a power cut. Steve had anticipated this he was at the door ready to restore our electricity. The house was pristine, amazingly equipped and very tastefully furnished
Many thanks to Steve and Ariadne.
By Sean on 09-Jun-2017
.....for having us back again this year. Our stay was wonderful as usual and for us Villa La Rose des vents has become a real HOME from HOME! Over the last five years we have spent more than seven weeks here and we hope to return next year and the year after.
A fantastic villa with great facilities
By Viviane on 03-Jun-2017
hot tub, pool, outdoor kitchen Rooms were spacious and comfortable and very well-equipped. We came for an extended family reunion end of June beginning of July 2017 we all promised to review the villa in the most positive way Steve provided us with bread, eggs and drinks upon arrival - a most welcome gesture! We enjoyed exploring Fayence and the surrounding areas. Restaurants were fantastic. We would definitely recommend this villa to others. We will be back a bientot merci Steve et Ariadne

It has been lovely coming back to this house. Thank you again for a fantastic holiday in the south of France. I don't think that we could find any other better place to stay in France other than here! Your home is really one of a kind.

We would love to return next year, we will be in touch. With much love.
This review is yet further confirmation that the hard work of my team and myself has not been in vain and that our aim to provide the best possible villa experience at the best price is under scored. We look forward to welcoming these lovely back to their home from home in 2017!
superb villa and location
By Andrew on 16-Sep-2016
When we arrived the owners, Steve and Ariadne were their to greet us. They gave us a tour showing where everything is and how things worked. They very generously left a welcome gift of some wine, champagne and eggs from their chickens. The villa itself exceeded our expectations. First of all it was a lot bigger than we thought (unusual as most holiday properties are disappointing on size), very clean and tidy and superbly equipped. Our two older teenage kids loved the place (high praise indeed f
Have never willingly chosen.
By Jeremy on 06-Aug-2016
Have never willingly chosen to return to the same holiday destination till we came to the Villarosedesvents. If possible would stamp our fortnight here every year for the rest of our lives.
Wonderful Home not just a House. It feels like you belong here. All the comforts you could ever need or desire. Heated Swimming pool to die for. Fantastic out door kitchen. Perfect location away from it all with no light pollution at night yet walking distance to a wonderful Village with true French atmosphere. A number of fine Restaurants to suit all tastes and fantastic markets twice weekly.
Nice touches such as Boules area and beautiful Fish pond with delightful bridge from which to feed the fish.
As keen Cyclists, the area is fantastic. Perfect roads, steady climbs and fantastic descents and typically beautiful villages to stop for a bite.
Villa is spotless. kitchen well stocked and a pleasure to cook in. Love the upstairs living area, especially the masses of DVD's and books.
If Heaven exists. Villarosedesvents must be it.
Best Rental Villa Ever
By Gaston on 06-Aug-2016
We have been renting holiday villas in France; Spain and Italy for over 20 years and La Rose des Vents is -- with no hesitation -- the best ever. The large spacious luxuriously furnished, beautifully decorated house and gardens alone make it the standout for comfort . Add to that the personal welcome of owners Steve and Ariadne for whom no request for advice or assistance was ever too much. We had the misfortune that my wife's handbag was stolen from our car during one of our excursions and Steve was extremely helpful in helping us deal with police, use of his telephone fax machine etc etc
By Steve M. on 06-Aug-2016
After ticking my requirements on Owners Direct for a villa in the South of France, I couldn't believe that this villa came up as a possibility for only 4 persons, but I can say, I'm glad it did! We took a few days to leisurely drive down from the UK through the Alps to find Villa La Rose des Vents just on the outskirts of the unspoiled and charming Fayence. We were met by the owner Steve & Ariadne who, after a proud - and rightly so - tour, left us to enjoy our holiday with wines, bread and fresh eggs, all done to make us feel welcome. It was not needed, as the moment I pulled through the gates, I felt relaxed and at home. The Villa exceeded our expectations, Steve had gone to great effort to address all previous comments on this site, our teenage son and daughter could not have been happier! should they have got bored, there was plenty to entertain, even two mountain bikes! The villa was spotlessly clean and well maintained. I personally loved the outside kitchen and cooked there every evening with my son. We dragged ourselves away on a few day trips to Monaco, Cannes and St Tropez, which in light of recent events still felt very safe and were well worth the visit. We would return to this villa like a shot, as there is so much of the local area still to explore and I would like to spend a few more evenings watching the stars by the pool with a cold beer!
Its true! We have no light or noise pollution for that matter. So watching out for shooting stars next to, or in the pool, at night are "musts". It is reviews like this, and indeed we are accruing many,that are a testament to the hard work of my team: Ariadne, Michelle, Danielle and Marjorie. Without them the attention to detail that we apply would be less possible. We all look forward to welcoming back these lovely people so that when they drive through the gates their sensation of feeling at home will be doubled! A bientot!
A villa to fall in love with
By Kim C. on 16-Jul-2016
From the moment the blue gates opened.....onto the drive of Villa La Rose des Vents, we were thrilled with our choice. The property is clearly very well cared for by the owners and a lot of thought and work has gone into it. It is quirky, eclectic and thoroughly charming. The pool and sitting out areas were delightful and the Hot Tub (which was of very high quality) was the icing on the cake. Steve was very helpful and considerate both before and during our stay, the property was spotlessly clean and we very much appreciated the welcome gift of champagne, wines, beer etc. and the fact that it was so well equipped. Great attention to detail. We completely fell in love with the whole area and found Fayence quaint and charming. We ate out in quite a few of the local restaurants and found them all pretty good in the main and very good value for our Swiss Francs. We will definitely return to Villa La Rose des Vents and are already looking forward to our next visit. Many thanks to Steve and his wife for all his hard work. Family Chinni
It is reviews like this that reward my team and I for our hard work. The pleasure is multiplied when we receive cultured people like the Chinni Family who appreciate our work and our particularly lovely part of the south of France and we look forward to welcoming them back to their 'Home from Home'.
Charming villa, excellent stay !
By John C. on 09-Jul-2016
Would endorse all previous excellent reviews which helped us to select this villa in the first instance. Looking for a place with character away from the traditional hotspots for an annual adult family gathering, Villa La Rose des Vents exceeded our expectations. The villa itself was spotless with an abundance of interesting and useful features and facilities. Only occasional excursions to Fayence for provisions and visits to nearby restaurants and hilltop villages dragged us away.Steve and Ariadne were very helpful and discreet throughout. Many thanks,we truly enjoyed our stay.
What a joy it is to receive 'Family Reunions' at our home; it seems to be becoming a regular theme! My team and I look forward to welcoming this family, and others like them, who appreciate and respect the good things in life at Villa La Rose des Vents as well as this beautiful part of the south of France! A bientot
Beyond our Expectations!
By Alison S. on 11-Jun-2016
Thank you so much for such a perfect holiday. Everything about this beautiful property was beyond our expectations. The facilities were perfect. We enjoyed the convenience of the outside kitchen/bar (where we did, indeed, spend most of our time!) The pool and its surrounds were a joy and we had great fun with nightly boule and table tennis competitions. This place is so well equipped it really feels like home. Furthermore everything was spotlessly clean with a fine attention to detail. Small touches like fresh flowers for our arrival and a plentiful supply of little extras such as dishwasher tablets - no expense spared! It was great being so close to Fayence but still in a rural spot. We truly look forward to another holiday here.
Again, it is reviews like this that confirm we are doing something right and that the attention to detail and all the hard work by my team and I is worthwhile! We look forward to welcoming these guests back to Villa La Rose des Vents very soon! A bientot!
Thank you for a wonderful stay
By Jean Marc P on 01-May-2016
«Thank you for a wonderful stay. The wine, Champagne and eggs from your Italian gales, your home grown olives. The villa has so much character, secret places to sit. Everything thought of and so clean. We loved the 8 restaurants in Fayence, the charm of the hill top villages of the Pays de Fayence. Thank you! «
