A villa with character offering comefort and fabulous views close to the delightful town of Fayence
The villa was very comfortable for two with spacious rooms and partial air conditioning. The view from the rear veranda is outstanding and south facing. The villa is well equipped with everything you would need even an electric barbeque.The pool was most welcome when the temperature rose to 35deg.
Fayence is a delightful town in an interesting and beautiful area. It has some good restaurants and there is usually entertainment to be had in the evenings.
Being hypercritical the décor in the villa is in a typically French rural style which some might find oppressive. It would have been helpful to have had instruction manuals for the kitchen appliances, they all seemed new and took a little getting used to. I would say the dishwasher, although new, was flimsy.
The only real disadvantage of the villa is that although its only a few minutes walk into Fayence it is up a very steep hill. Not easy with the temperature in the 30s and your 70 year old legs are creaking.
A very good holiday just what we wanted and we would return for another holiday in Mas de l'Olivet.

Thank you for your review and helpful comments. i believe the owners did leave the manuals for the appliances in the kitchen drawer. But sounds like you had a great time!
Great holiday, lovely villa
Thank you very much for a lovely stay at Mas l'Olivet. The family and I where very pleased with the house and location. We have only good things to say. Hopefully we will be able to return in future.

Thank you for your assistance. We enjoyed our stay very much and have many good memories.

Fulfilled our expectations!
The Villa Olivet fulfilled our highest expectations, not only the inside with a lot of space, large rooms with nice furniture and useful equipment. But first and foremost the outside areas from which there is a stunning view over the beautiful valley, a large (and very, very!) clean Pool, cosy corners, good BBQ-facilities and much more. One should add that the Villa is electronically well secured, and finally, just 5 minutes uphill walk to Fayence, our absolutely favourite village in the Provence.

Great villa - really loved it
We had a wonderful stay and I am quite sure you will hear from us again in the future. The Fauske family

We really did enjoy our stay at Mas de L'Olivet and felt that it was much better in real life than the photos depicted. It soon became our home form home. It felt very secure and safe.
The pool and gardens are stunning.The house is fitted with everything you need and more to make a yourself comfortable. The poolside entertainment area is brilliant and was an added bonus. The wifi worked fine, but we were unable to tune in to TV due to a system issue. An upgrade to the stereo would be an inexpensive way to make the house almost perfect. It would have been great to have some outdoor speakers to listen to whilst lounging around the pool, or even a system in the pool house.
A real improvement would be to supply air con in all the bedrooms as it is uncomfortably hot without it. (2 of them have air con)
The village is a short but steep walk (5-10 mins depending on how fit you are)
Great little restaurants, offering very similar dishes but plenty of options. Market day was busy and interesting though the prices are rather inflated.
Caroline at Affinity was really friendly and helpful and gave us some good advice and made our stay very pleasant.

Loved the location
We loved the location of the villa however the walk up hill to the village was a killer. We booked late and were very lucky to find somewhere to go and stumbled onto the web site of Affinity Holidays France. We booked with them because their prices were better, but did have initially problems booking that Affinity sorted out. We had good communications with Caroline who was English and very helpful with anything from supermarkets to places of interest.
My husband didn't like the fact that the doors were a bit creaky etc but I loved the typical french feel to the villa - great pool maintained once a week - all you needed was there well equipped. large bedrooms. 3 bathrooms and one separate toilet - however only one shower and one of the bathrooms didn't have a toilet! It was the sort of place your can easy relax and spend more time.
Karen CowdryAug 2015
It's a nice house, and a very nice location. Nice kitchen and bathroom.
I think that the pool was dirty and was never quite clean. We had a really good holiday and will definitely come back.
Jesper WintherAug 2016
Thank you Jesper for your honest report. Unfortunately as you know the pool mechanics have a fault and the pool technician has been doing his best to keep the pool functional for the summer season. It will need to be emptied to repair so we did what we could! Next time it will be spotless of course. See you again next year we hope.
A lovely well located Mas with fabulous outdoor space.
We thoroughly enjoyed out 2 week holiday in Mas de l'Olivet. Great location with a challenging 5 mins walk in to the pretty market square in Feyance, convenient for good supermarkets and 15 mins from Lac Cassien for those wishing to pedallo, paddle board or canoe. We were blessed with lovely weather so the pool was the focal point of the holiday, as was the gorgeous terrace where all meals were enjoyed.
Despite the hot weather the house remained cool and really benefits from recently renovated bathrooms and kitchen.
We would be happy to return. It is a favourite part of France that we know well and have returned to for many years with our 3 now grown up children and their partners and friends.

Thank you for your review. We hope to see you again at Mas de l'Olivet.
Home from home - this villa has everything you need!
Lovely villa, with excellent pool. We had a lovely time, and everything we needed was provided in the villa. It even has a second kitchen in the pool house! Plenty of sun beds, and large verandah if you want to keep to the shade.
There were 7 of us, so we hired a Renault Espace, and I think with the angle of the drive way it would be difficult to get in and out of the drive with anything larger, as there is a very sharp turn on to the narrow lane. We had an experienced driver, so it was okay for us.
Very near to interesting places like Grasse, Cannes and Nice, so ideally placed. Steep walk up to local village, but really only takes 5 minutes.
We had a relaxing time and would recommend this villa.
Tracey BeaneySep 2016
We are delighted you had such a great time and got the knack of the driveway! Yes the walk to the village is steep but always well worth it when you get there. Thanks for taking the time to leave us your message.
