A super property in a tranquil and lovely location

  • 5 of 5

A superb place in a tranquil location. Three couples, spent a relaxing winter break over the new year in Villa Dusett. The property has 3 houses and we stayed in the old house and the round house. The villa sits on the pretty hillside of Castellas just between Valbonne, Mougins and Mouans Sartoux and you need a car to really appreciate the surroundings. The villa itself is very stylishly decorated, with a traditional Provence tuch and feel, but it also has all the modern facilities you need. It was also spotlessly clean and well maintained by Leo and his staff. The grounds offer a very private pool and lovely shaded pool house that we did not use this time, as well as a relaxing pool area with sun beds, tables and chair. Everything is well chosen and 5 star standard. The different restaurants in the villages around are just 5 minutes away by car. Finally best of all is the silent location, which is truly stunning and relaxing day and night! A great base from which to explore the Riviera, including Monaco, Nice, Cannes St Tropez Gourdonne and other small villages etc. Can't wait to return!

Perfect location for 2 families

  • 5 of 5

We spent one of our best holidays ever in Villa Dusett.

We were 2 families.

Each family occupied one of the houses, which gave us plenty of privacy.

At the same time the fantastic outdoor kitchen with its big table, seating 10 people, was our constant meeting point. After breakfast the parents still sat at the table, whilst the kids jumped already in the pool. From the table we were able to have an eye on them, talking and relaxing. This is the best setup ever!

The houses are furnished very tastefully. A lot of effort has been put into them, which gives the interior a very personal and cosy impression. It's like staying at friends, not like staying in an hotel.

Plenty of kitchen untensiles.

Great beds!

Little troubles that we had, have always promptly been taken care of, by the property manager. If in trouble, just give them a short note and they will turn up within the next hours and sort it out.

The location is in a good and quiet neighbourhood. The noise from the road, mentioned in an earlier review was only due to the roadworks during their visit. When we where there, the road was finished and no trouble at all.

The surrounding area has plenty to offer. Normally we love the sea, however, compared the the beautiful, heated private pool, the sea around Antibes and Cannes had little to offer. More attractive for us was the back country towards the mountains, with beatiful old cities like Grasse or Valbonne, the gorges, the medieval villages, ... and a lot more to do.

Marineland in Antibes, with its dolphin and orca shows was a highlight especially for the kids. ( One day advanced booking on the internet saved us 30% of the ticket price.)

Altogether, it is a place, we love to come back to!

excellent place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This is by far the best villa we have stayed in , and we have been all over Europe, and the fact it is three villas makes it even better. I chose this place as it it close to Cannes, Nice, Monaco, St Tropez, and many other places, but I had trouble trying to get them away to these places as they just loved the pool . My little one year old grandson would have stayed with the cows all day if he could. Valbonne is a beautiful place to visit and eat out, so many little shops and a lovely square with lots of restaurants. Leo , the caretaker is very helpful and full of helpful advise. I would take a Sat Nav next time, as it is easy to get lost , but that only added to the fun.The weather was 30 degrees each day,and sunny, no thunder, even though it was forecast, The pool was 26 degrees every day. Can,t wait to go back again.

A unique place!

  • 5 of 5

A unique Place. Its actually two separate homes with a large garden, courtyard for parking and wonderful heated pool with a pool house and a third house we did not use.

We were eight in total, four adults and four older teenagers. The villa is set in a beautiful area, close to Valbone and Mougins. The houses is not only charming they are beautifully designed and presented. All parts are generously proportioned with a great feeling of space. The pool kitchen is a dream to work and spend time in enabling you to spend time toghether and prepare some memorable meals for consumption by the pool day and night. There really is nothing the owners could do to improve the villa and its grounds. Truly superb, just thirty minutes from Nice Airport

I would highly recommend this place to a large family or any group that wants to be together but slightly apart, everything is right there within a couple of kilometers... from michelin star restaurants to art galleries, post office etc. the only thing is the weather was not perfect everyday of our stay but that’s not the hosts fault :) and we where happy since the pool was heated. Thank you to the staff Leo and Alex for your superb service

We have found heaven......!

  • 5 of 5

We drove down from Frankfurt in Germany to spend christmas at the French Riviera with our extended family of 8. We arrived to blue skies and a warm welcome by mr. Leo and his team. We where blown away by just how beautifull Villa Dusett is, its actualay a smal heaven with a warm athmosphere. We had intentions to discover the local area but al prefered to stay att the property and socialize. Now we are leaving and we already plan the next summer holiday here.

Property was not alarmed, the gate was broken, there was no access to a safe and because of this we were broken into. The customer service was appalling from the owner of the property he was not helpful at all even on our return when I needed stuff for insurance purposes he was not willing to provide basic information to us. The electricity went off in a daily basis, food was thrown out because of this, the pool was cold and filthy because of the electricity also. Would not recommend to anyone.

Owner's Response: Dear Guests We as owners and the housekeeping staff prefer not to comment this review in detail since we have been having satisfied guests at the property for a long time and we disagree with this guest. Our disagreement is due to the fact that the guests did not allow the cleaning personnel to visit the property during their 4 week stay and it took 32 man-hours to clean the property after their departure. If anyone want to get pictures of the destruction these guests done during their rental of the property pls. contact the owner through Holiday Rentals hompage and we return some pictures. Finally we would like to mention that if you have complains or wishes during your stay pls. contact the housekeeping staff so any problems can be handled immediately. Don’t put up a bad review on Internet eleven (11) weeks after departure when the owner refuses to give false evidence to an insurance company.

Villa Dusett in Castellaras a 10 bed property always rented out to one party of guests. You can rent the whole property or only the Old house and the Round hose for 8 persons and pay 85 % of the fee pls. contact info@dusett.fr for more information.

Villa Dusett is ideally located and a perfect base from which to pursue a wide range of activities and interests. These include 8 stunning golf courses within 10 km i.e. Royal Mougins Golf Club, Sant Donat Golf Club and Golf Club Opio Valbonne.

All manner of water sports within short driving distance, tennis, angling and a choice of authentic French produce and antique markets, as well as the numerous festivals that are held annually throughout the region.

Valbonne, Mougins, Opio and Mouans Sartoux are our local villages. All are typical very old Provencal villages, dating from before 1300. They have market days where the farmers bring in lovely fruit, vegetables, olive oil and beautiful flowers. And the old parts have perfect places to sit in a café and enjoy a cappuccino. There are also lots of little nice shops.

The French as we all love to go out for a meal and wherever you go in the area you have a astonishing choice of restaurants. Within 20 km you will find approximately 20 Guide Michelin starred restaurants with the closest only 2 km away.

Finally, there is no real season for Villa Dusett since Castellaras is only one to two hours away from Verdone for kayaking and hiking as well as the same distance from Valberg, Isola 2000 and Auron ski resorts.
