My wife and I stayed two weeks at Maison Mimosa for our honeymoon, and it was the perfect place to get a genuine flavour of life in Provence. Everything from the low ceiling with the beautiful beams to the antique furniture makes the apartment ooze of old world living. The little roof terrace is perfect for enjoying the morning coffee and fresh croissants from the boulangerie around the corner.
Flayosc is a quaint little town, its quiet and relaxing, and perfectly situated for visiting most of what Provence has to offer. Everything is within reasonable driving distance, be it the beach or the mountains.
There are good alternatives for eating and drinking, and after youve figured out the sometimes baffling opening hours youll thoroughly enjoy the town. Particularly Id like to mention the chocolate souffle served at the LOusteau restaurant across the plaza from Maison Mimosa, it bleeds warm chocolate and is the best Ive ever tasted. Its to die for!
Our French is rather poor, but the locals are very patient and helpful, and with a lot of pointing and a mix of carefully pronounced English and pidgin French we got by very well.
Balcony excellent - probably too big. However sun beds both needing repair. Sitting area with table good for getting out of sun but a bit like sitting in a box.
Lack of drawers/shelves for storage in bedroom.
Kitchen poorly designed with little space for preparation.
Bathroom good but shower head holder faulty and in fact fell down and hit my wife on the head on one occasion. Needs to be replaced before it splits someones head.
Noise from road keeps you awake at night even with windows shut and air-conditioning on.
Overall property is okay although fairly basic.
We could not have asked for a better place to begin our honeymoon. The house is gorgeous and quiet and the village has everything you would ever need. Flayosc is the perfect homebase for those wanting to explore the surrounding area, and equally ideal for those seeking a quiet sojurn. Area restaurants are fantastic and the owner and villagers are friendly and helpful.
We think that apartment is suitable for those who rent a car only. Situation is far from the real bus stop in hot weather.
The beach is in walking distance for adults. With kids it´s practical to go by car. The pool is small but it was easy to visit in it.
The elevator was quite new and clean too.
We would have liked better equipment for cleaning the inside floor. The ones on the terass were too dirty (of red soil thrown by wind) to use inside.
It was nice and practical to have all machines in kitchen. An apartment was clean and nice. In sport family the males enjoyed the possibility to see football and other sport programs in TV too.
Also large terass was nice in the late afternoons in June, earlier it was too hot.
We enjoyed the apartment and the peace and quiet surround in Kapparis area.
We felt a connection to Provence which would only be achieved by being in a small village. Several of the restaurants in the village were not that friendly but others were exceptional. The location is very condusive and central to exploring Provence.
