Beautiful property in the South of France

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the property in September 2016. My husband and I actually got married and had the ceremony at the property. It was absolutely beautiful and such a stunning venue. We were so happy with the property and felt we had chosen the perfect place to have our ceremony. The owners were really lovely and helpful. We would definitely love to go back.

Beautiful villa with authentic charm

  • 5 of 5

A fabulous villa, suiting more than one family. Beautiful rural location but only a short drive to Nice and Cannes. The villa is well presented with modern amenities whilst retaining it's authentic charm. Excellent for families with small children, particularly the large enclosed garden and swimming pool with shallow 'beach' entry, sloped sides, and integrated spa. Lots to do locally for adults and kids (must visit Gourdon and with young kids Les Bois de Lutins).

Undoubtedly we will return!

A wonderful family holiday! We loved it.

  • 5 of 5

We are a large family and we were so excited to go on holiday to the South of France together. Villa Les Lucioles completely exceeded our expectations. The grounds are fantastic -they are large so we had so much room to spread out. Lots of different seating areas and loads of garden games, such as table tennis and badmington. The villa is in a quiet location but close to fantastic scenery and villages. We ate out in the charming village of Le Bar sur Loup and Valbonne - great places. The villa is spacious and very well kept, very nicely decorated and has all the amenities we could ask for. We had 4 younger children in our party, they adored the garden and the kiddie toys. The pool was even warm enough at the end of April for them to take a swim! There's a great shallow area in the pool for kids! We really recommend this property for a holiday and hope ourselves to return soon.

A Painting Holiday

  • 4 of 5

We have just returned to Ireland from Les Lucioles. Twelve of us went on a painting holdiay and we had a wonderful time. The villa was beautifully maintained with all modern facilities, spacious and spotless. The grounds were a haven of peace with lots of space for twelve adults to spread out around. From the first moment I contacted Lise my enquiry was treated in a professional and friendly manner. While the road to the villa is a rather hair raising experience, once you get there it is a vertiable paradise. The bedrooms are adequate. The large marble table leading out from the kitchen was the 'heart of the holiday' and we spent many wonderful hours around it - as is the table in the dining area if the weather is too cool! I would highly recommend a visit to Les Lucioles and hope you experience the wonderful hospitality of Lise and John.

P.S Do not miss dining at Le Bigourdier in Bar sur Loup - the food is heavenly - just like the views. The staff are exceptional.

Excellent house with all the comforts.

  • 5 of 5

We are three italian families for a total of 12 people (6 kids, 6 adults); we staied at the villa for 5 nights and it was an excellent experience. A lot of space, all the conforts, comfortable bedrooms and many bathrooms. We all felt relaxed....the only problem was that the kids never wanted to go outside....!!!!!! I think the photos perfectly show the house.....maybe the reality is even better than the photos!!!!!!!!!!!

All around Bar sur Loup there are so many beautiful places to see, seaside and mountains, and all the places are very near.

I will for sure give this address to my friends, because this was a perfect experience!!!!!!!

The 6 children were so friendly and our daughter, Kiera, enjoyed meeting them also! How great that they loved the garden and pool and did not want to leave the property! Thank you very much for leaving it so tidy. We hope you all have a great summer coming up and really hope to see you all again in the future!! Take care, Lise
