This house is lovely. It is a unique place with a special feel and character. The interior style is beautiful in the whole house. The property is rather large with many different levels. Not to mention spectacular views. We spent one week there with our kids aged 7 and 9. It was a super week. We loved the location. Took us 5 min walk into the village. We participated in the fete du pain (bread festival) with all the locals. We also visited many of the charming villages in short distance (Seillans, Callians etc). We spent a great day at Lac de Cassian with pedalo boats too. The week was a huge success. If there’s anything to comment upon; there were quite a lot of ants near the pool. The gardening is not 100% spot on, with leafs here and there etc. But not that much that it disturbed us. We are quite picky, well-traveled people who loved the place and could easily go back!

We had a lovely stay with our two children in Villa Fontinelles. The house looked just like the pictures: clean, beautiful and very cosy. The view was amazing and it was so nice we were just a few minutes walking from the lovely village Fayence. There’s a market 3x/week and some very good restaurants. The garden looked a bit less maintained, but the pool and the terrace under the grapevines (where we had breakfast and delightful dinners) were lovely. Ian and Christine were very helpful and available in case we had questions. Thank you very much!”

We stayed here for a second year running. Everything remained as we remembered it. Clean, comfortable, and a beautiful villa in a beautiful spot.

Thank you so much, we have had a fantastic week in Villa Fontenelles! What a marvelous place this is! We had not been in this area before, but were totally charmed. The whole week was perfect!

The house was perfect for the four of us, 2 adults and 2 children (age 11 and 14) The welcome come great, all our questions was answered in English which was good since we don’t speak much French. A bottle of rosè was awaiting and the property was very nice and clean, inside and outside. The pool was also highly appreciated when the temperatures reached 32-33 degrees celsius. 

The garden was just beautiful with plenty of nice little spots to relax. We didn’t miss anything, and we would love to come back some time.

Thank you!

Mona and family

This is a beautiful villa and very convenient for the village where there are lots of restaurants. It is well equipped and tastefully decorated with plenty of outdoor seating and loungers. There are a fair amount of steps in the villa, and the town (although the walk to the centre is relatively flat), so it might not be perfect for elderly people or those with limited mobility (or baby buggies), but for two couples or a family of four (in two bedrooms) it is perfect. The views are stunning and the pool is a decent size for actually swimming in! Ian and Christine were very helpful and friendly, and we would happily recommend Blackwood Villas – we hope to return again soon.


We have arrived back in the UK after a thoroughly enjoyable holiday in Fayence.  The villa was excellent and Jill was extremely helpful.
Thank you and regards

Takk for det.

Urlaub in Fontenelle.
Das Haus und die Umgebung bietet wirlich alles, was man zur Entspannung
Es kann gut sein, dass wir wieder mal kommen würden, sofern das Haus
wieder vermietet wird.
