Area InfoVillas for rent in Montauroux
West of Grasse, the landscape opens out into a wide plane at the heart of which is the beautiful Lac St Cassien. A range of hills marks the northern boundary, each topped with a fortified medieval village with its distinctive stone castle and church spire. This string of hilltop villages runs east-west starting with the village of Montauroux followed by Tourrettes, Fayence, Callian and then finally Seillans in the distance.
Of these villages Fayence is perhaps the best known. Set at 350 metres above sea level, Fayence is a lively town full of shops and restaurants as well as a number of historic sites and panoramic views down to the coast. The town is surrounded by wine production where scores of producers make the excellent local rose wine of the region. These vineyards can be visited and offer free tastings adding to Fayence’s many holiday attractions, situated within an hour’s drive of Cannes and St Tropez.
