[R] replacing unicode characters

Building on the example from ?iconv:
x <- "fa\xE7ile"
xx <- iconv(x, "latin1", "UTF-8") # "façile"
iconv(xx, "UTF-8", "ASCII", "Unicode")
This is the type of result I sometimes get from an R script that I cannot
reproduce here, because it depends on a terminal process started in a
compiled Electron (Node.js) application, under MacOS.
I was wondering, is there a standard way, perhaps also using iconv(), to
convert this type of result to a more manageable unicode representation?
Something like: "fa\u00e7ile"
Or perhaps a clever regexp, for any number of such occurrences in a string?
Thanks a lot in advance,
