Mani purchased this villa in 2003

Why Mani chose Roquefort-les-Pins

Fantastic Location, in a Private secluded area.The Villa is on the upper slope.There is every thing for the family to entertain for individual taste both for Young and mature people.Walking distance to Roquefort Village, which has banks, restaurants post office, and very nice large super market serving fresh meat and fish along with usual supermarket items.

We are about 12 Km from the beaches and the mountain ranges and of course the Nice airport with budget airlines like Easy jet, Norwegian airline etc.

Guestbook comments from the manager

As for a review for the villa, I will be more than happy to write a review, the property was fantastic, it provided everything we wanted and more and the summer kitchen provided us with a fantastic area for us all to get together at night. We never dined inside once and it cost us a fortune in logs for the fire/bbq but was worth every penny. The boys loved it and the roads and places we visited in the area were stunning. All the lads said the week couldn't have gone any better and the villa played no small part in that, giving us somewhere to look forward to returning to every night where we could all socialise together in great surroundings and reflect on the great days out we had.

A truly memorable week.

Kind Regards

  • 5 of 5

Our family and friends loved the villa. We celebrated our daughter's birthday. The villa has every thing we could wish for. The younger children had lots of entertainment. Equestrian center, Labyrinth, Tennis courts, Golf courses are all nearby. All the famous places are within half an hour drive including the Nice airport. Thank you Valerie who made us welcomed at the Villa and was only a phone call away to help us out. She found caterer who did all the cooking at the villa. Thank you Mani

Mini family reunion!

  • 5 of 5

We hosted a family get-together for 10 adults and 3 children for a week in paradise! The villa was clean, well equipped and in an excellent location. Trips to Venice, Cannes, Nice, Monaco and even a day trip to San Remo, Italy were all easy commutes. If you stayed at the villa for the day the pool area, table tennis and Pétanque were great fun, and outside cooking and eating areas were lovely. Mani was great to deal with and took the stress out of making reservations from so far away (Canada). We would give the villa a 5 Star Plus. We couldn't have asked for more, and hope to be able to return one day.

Perfect holiday home!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this villa and it was perfect for our stay! We were a large group of friends on holiday for a wedding. The house is large and there was plenty of space to relax as well as eat together. Mani was incredibly helpful and met all of our needs and we would definitely return. The only thing was that the house is 2 separate apartments so if you stay upstairs you have to be vigilant with keeping the keys on you/ remembering where they are! Saying that, the area felt very safe!

Owner's Response: Hi Thank you very much for your kind words.Both Marion and are very pleased that you had a great time. As for two separate apartment,we thought it is best way to get a break from our 8 grandchildren. A bit of privacy goes a long way, We could have a stairwell between Ground floor and top floor.Valerie should have given you a spare key. Kind regards Marion and Mani

Golden wedding celebration

  • 5 of 5

There's so many good things to say about this lovely holiday destination for large family or friends groups. Terrific location 20 minutes drive from Nice airport makes things easy for taking/fetching. Lovely Valbonne is just down the road for markets and eating out. The villa is in a quiet residential area, but the village of RLP has a well stocked Intermarche and is just down the road. The sea and mountains are equally accessible in under half an hour, and there are wooded tracks round the corner for running and walking.

The house itself wraps around you with comfort and convenience. The beds are really comfortable and every room has air conditioning. The showers are modern and never run out of hot water, even when 16 people all decide to shower before supper! The safety features of electronic gate, and pool screens are invaluable with tiny children. The pool is wonderful..warm and plenty big enough for day- long play for active teenagers, parents and toddlers. There were plenty of sitting areas both inside and out so people could find quiet and shade if they wished.

This house benefits from not being near a river and is in an elevated position so it is bright and airy, and keeps the sunshine in gardens and pool area right up to sunset. We still got bites though until we burned repellents when we ate outside, and used plugged in ones in the bedrooms, and that sorted it.

The house is very well equipped for large parties, with plenty of large serving dishes, pans, glasses etc. There is a large American style fridge with water and ice dispenser, plus another fridge. The Sky TV and Internet was another bonus to our teenage family members especially!

There were 17 in our group, including a toddler in a cot, and our ages ranged from 1-76 yearsI I did a lot of research to find a suitable venue for our special family celebration, and this lovely villa and the personal care of the owners and housekeeper provided everything we had wanted and more. Thank you so much Mani, Marian and Valerie.

Fantastic property at a good location

  • 5 of 5

We were a total of 13 people and 3 generations in the villa for a week. This was a wonderful experience.

The villa is well equipped and (almost) everything works. It has all that is needed for relaxing vacation, even toys for the swimming pool. The children and some of the adults too, spent hours in the pool. The weather was fantastic and all our meals were served outdoor.

The service provided by Valerie was superior, she told us everything that was needed for our stay. Also the information received in advance is very informative. The rooms and the whole property was clean.

The villa is only a couple of minutes away from shopping centre and restaurants, in addition the small villages within 10 minutes driving distance provide a good selection.

During our stay people visited Valbonne, Grasse, Vence, Gourdon, Marineland in Antibes, Bois des Lutins. All are places that can be recommended.

We will definitelu recommend this place to friends.

Fabulously spacious and well laid out villa

  • 5 of 5

Mani and Marion’s villa is wonderful. I stayed at the villa along with 9 friends as part of my birthday celebrations. It was everything I’d hoped it would be and more; a spacious and relaxing villa with a fabulous outdoor entertaining area. It was an easy commute from Nice airport (20 minutes) and close to a supermarket etc. I spoke to Mani on the phone and by email prior to our arrival and everything ran smoothly, helped by Valerie who greeted us at the start and bid us farewell at the end. We spoke to Valerie on a couple of occasions during the trip and she was always willing to answer any questions and offer suggestions. I have every confidence in recommending the villa to anyone who is looking for a spacious, beautiful and welcoming space to bring people together. We had a great time.
