It was such a pleasure to spend two weeks in your charming Provencal Villa. We were familiar with the area and must say that the Villa impressed us. It was exactly what we were looking for: so authentic and tastefully decorated, yet very practical, fully equipped. It all simply felt right and has been the perfect place this summer for our family to rejoin and spend time together. Peter the villa manager is extremely efficient and the house is very well maintained.

We loved the huge beautiful garden and the children never had enough of it and the pool. We explored the exquisite villages of the area, went canyoning, enjoyed the restaurants you recommended, a day in Cannes, a visit to Biot…

Great home, great location, we will be back!

Quel plaisir que de passer ces deux semaines dans votre charmante villa Provençale. Nous connaissions la région et y avions déjà loué des maisons, mais cette villa nous a impressionnée, c’était exactement ce que nous recherchions : authentique et décorée avec beaucoup de goût, très pratique et bien équipée a la fois. Nous y étions bien, le parfait endroit pour nous retrouver en famille. Peter le responsable de la maison sur place est efficace et très agréable, la maison est très bien entretenue.

Nous avons beaucoup aimé le grand jardin, ce qui n’est pas commun dans le midi, ainsi que la piscine dont les enfants ne se lassaient jamais ! Nous avons exploré les villages alentour qui sont exquis, fait du canyoning, profité des très bons restaurants que vous aviez recommandés, passé une journée à Cannes, visite à la verrerie de Biot …

Une maison ravissante et très bien située, nous reviendrons certainement!

Owner's Response: There are lots of day visits you can make within an hour from our villa as this family discovered. It's great when our guests discover new restaurants and recommend them to us as well. We enjoy building up a tried-and-true list of recommendations based on our own, as well as our guests' experiences!

Gorgeous house and garden

  • 5 of 5

We spent a fortnight here in August and had a great time. The pool is a really good size for a large group and the pool side furniture plentiful and stylish. The grounds are a particularly lovely feature with lots of mature trees and abundant natural shade. Inside, the house was characterful and comfortable, and very peaceful. The air conditioning in the bedrooms was very welcome as we had excellent weather throughout our stay. Lots to see in the local towns and villages and also handy for the coast and airport.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind review! We are always delighted when our guests enjoy their stay and after all the rain earlier in the year, I'm pleased that the garden was particularly lush. Hope we can welcome you back next summer.

Superb well presented Villa

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have rented around 10 or 12 pretty pricey Villas in the last 9 years of visiting the South of France, this one is without doubt the best presented and maintained and offers excellent value. It has a superb child friendly good size pool. Frejus beach is a gem, great local restaurants. Owners and local man Peter are a delight to deal with.

Owner's Response: Very pleased it worked out so well for you, especially as it was a last-minute booking! We had a sudden cancellation but this lovely couple saved the day. Thank you and come back soon for more lounging about on the trampoline. :)

Just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Where should I start?... In short: we had a fantastic holiday in Amanda's wonderful property.

Lovely house, huge and well-maintained garden, perfect pool, calm surroundings,... All in top condition, very clean and comfy. A veeery nice place to spend holidays!

Communication with Amanda was quick, friendly and uncomplicated. The people looking after the house have been very nice as well: Peter who welcomed us, the gardener and his wife, the poolguy... All very friendly and helpful.

The only very slight downside was the slow internet connection. For people traveling with teenagers and/or having to keep connected with business, it might be a point to keep in mind. That being said, it's manageable and probably helps taking it easy. ;-)

In one (or two) workds: highly recommended!

Owner's Response: Thanks, Pierre for your kind words! It was a pleasure to communicate with you and we are delighted you and your family enjoyed your holiday in our villa. As for the internet, we have added a wifi expander to increase the signal, and Peter is working on finding a further solution. I hope we can welcome you back another year with a 10% discount for returning guests!

A stunning, very private villa in amazing grounds

  • 5 of 5

This villa is really tucked away in a very exclusive residential area and not the easiest place to find! However, there is no doubt about it, this is a very beautiful villa - very traditional in style and decor and incredibly spacious. The layout is brilliant if you are two groups / families travelling together, with two rooms upstairs with their own bathroom and two downstairs and again their own bathroom. The kitchen is very well-equipped and the dining room / lounge enormous. The best bit for us though was the outside dining area, the gardens and pool. Having a huge fridge outside was so brilliant and the BBQ, as we just lived at the pool all day and ate outside in the evenings. It would have been even better to have equipment placed in the draws that would prevent having to bring stuff outside all the time - corkscrew, cutlery, breadknife etc. However this is just a suggestion that would make it much better as would a hob attachment for the BBQ! The pool is amazing and a great design especially with children. Very shallow beach style at one end, very very deep in the middle and with a ledge all around the edge so that you can stand at the edge. Our 3 year old learnt to swim during the week we stayed! The trampoline was fantastic and entertained the children for hours, although some sort of netting might have allowed us to relax a little more! The children were so happy though thus happy parents. The garden is enormous and very well kept , a delight to wake up and see it. We had a few niggles during the week such as with the new lighting system, plumbing and WiFi, but these were resolved as quickly as possible and to the best of the responsible agent's ability. Overall, this was a truly wonderful place to stay and very memorable. It is alot of money for a week but well worth it for sure!

Owner's Response: We have put in air conditioners in all the bedrooms this year which has made summer nights more comfortable especially during the hottest part of the year. We always hope we can welcome happy guests back another time with a returning guest discount!

Stunning escape!

  • 5 of 5

Together with my fiancee we were on a last minute lookout for a weeks holiday in Southern-France (not a too far journey from Switzerland). We stumbled upon this house which intrigued us with its romantic and typical house style and its little parc which sounded just perfect.

Amanda was exceptionally quick in replying to my enquiry and organised everything for us to partically sit in the car and driving south.

We can only acknowledge to the several 5* reviews that have been made for this Villa. We felt at home away from home immediately. The house is really lovely with its big garden, nice flowers and big old trees which give you a nice escape from the stunning summer heat. The big pool is fantastic, big and deep enough to swim and play around. The house itself is comfortable equipped with everything you need and the romantic french style makes you feel like at home. We can recommend the villa with no exception!

Next time we will be booking earlier though ...

Owner's Response: A few emails was all it took and Roland and Frauke jumped in their car and arrived at the villa the next day! We were so pleased to get a last minute booking and it sounds like they really enjoyed their holiday, so it was fantastic for both parties. Next time Roland, don't forget you can get your 10% discount as a returning guest :-) so see you again we hope!
