About the studio
XVII century central village apartment
The house was built in the period of ‘XVIIème siècle’ and is positioned strategically just outside Flayosc’s Port de Paris, the original gate where you would leave the village on the way to Paris. This Provençal historical farm house is a family home and has been thoughtfully decorated with rustic and antique furniture to retain its cosy feel and original features, such as the stone stairs and floors, wooded beams, windows and roof terrace.
Positioned in the central square of the town its situated to enjoy all of the eccentricities of French village life. The Monday morning market is right outside the house, where you can buy delicious local cheese and meat, wine, olive oils, salts from the Camargue region and bread and cakes. During the summer months many musical events take place, from Jazz evenings, to Spanish guitar and local bands.
The award winning restaurants are known to locals who congregate with their extended families for lunch on weekends all year round. And if you prefer to eat at home then there is no need to cook as the local deli provides excellent ready made delicious local delicacies and for your daily bread the two French bakeries have divine patisseries and breads. There are two grocery stores, a fruit and vegetable shop as well as many other places to sit and sip a Pastis or glass of Rose in the town square, or buy your own wine and relax on the terrace watching the sun go down.

Il monolocale si presenta com’è descritto, il paese è incantevole, con molti ristorante e bar da porter sceglie e cambiare, luogo ideale per poter staccare la spina e caricare, ottimo punto di partenza per visitare la stupenda Provenza

Gorgeous apartment in a beautiful market town. We loved how old the studio was and Adrian provided everything we needed to self-cater for the week and feel very at home. Clean and tidy, lovely atmosphere to sit by the open window and have breakfast. It is in the centre of town with the noise you would expect from that so maybe not ideal if you want total quiet however it didn’t bother us. The bar below the apartment was having building work done while we were staying which was unfortunate but we assume this is a temporary issue and won’t affect future guests. Adrian was communicative and responded quickly when we messaged him about the noise below. We highly recommend hiring a car and exploring the incredible natural beauty of the area. We particularly enjoyed a hike around lac de Carces and also to the waterfall at Sauve-Clare. We parked the car at Draguignan Les Arcs and train hopped on day passes down to Monaco, Nice etc. which was fun.

L’emplacement est idéal. Nous nous trouvons sur la place centrale du village. Il faut cependant ne pas être sensible aux fêtes durant l’été sur la place! Le studio est tres bien agencé et la simplicité pour y avoir accès (cle…) est idéale. Plusieurs stationnements publics autour où même en période haute nous n’avons pas eu de problèmes. Adrian est très disponible, nous recommandons avec plaisir.

De Provence is prachtig en we hebben dan ook veel gezien en beleefd. De studio van Adrian is heel gezellig en alles is er. Het is ook leuk om zo in het centrum te zitten en de authentieke sfeer in te ademen. We hebben het fijn gehad en voelden ons er thuis.

Everything went very well. The apartment is well-equipped with all you need for a comfortable stay. The apartment is located in a beautiful picturesque town with old buildings and pretty restaurants. The free parking lot is nearby. Adrian answered all the questions very quickly. Recommended.

Can’t recommend the village the studio and the host enough. It was a really great experience.
Henrikas, June 2019
Overall experience is very good, location is excellent with choice of fine dining just outside the building.

Studio Mimosa is a lovely and charming property, right in the heart of a relaxed and friendly small town, which has plenty of good restaurants and food shops, and more. The apartment has a very comfortable bed, well equipped kitchen area and good bathroom, and is decorated with vintage furniture in great style. It has a comfortable sofa, and a table beside the window where you can eat and listen to the life at the restaurants and cafes below. The only downside during our three day stay in May was the noise on two evenings from the bar beneath the studio, which was loud, but I understand that this is being addressed by Adrian. We loved staying there and recommend it.

Thoroughly enjoyed a week here in April. The place has real character, an historic building in the heart of a really interesting village with so many opportunities for fine dining within a few minutes’ walk. Brilliant location. The facilities were comfortable with Wi-Fi to help plan our various trips, which included the surrounding villages, Verdon Gorge and the Mediterranean Coast.
