Excellent week for our group of 7

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 6, 3 couples and an infant and have just had really lovely week here. The property itself is really well situated, being just 30mins from Nice airport and just outside the village but only 5-10mins walk to the bar, baker and butchers. There are many things to do locally from pottering in the other local villages, walking up the large hills and still only a short distance from the coast. There is plenty of space for parking and the outdoors area is great, with a lovely pool, multiple sets of tables & chairs, a BBQ, place to play boules etc. Inside is just as good with 3 good sized bedrooms and a communal living area that spills out onto a terrace (can be covered with a sun shade) which has the most amazing views.

Great property with brilliant views easy access to Nice, Antibes Grasse etc good local shops

  • 5 of 5

Spent a great week here in early September 2016, the property is nicely tucked away from the village but just a 5 min walk into the village for supplies.

The property was in great condition comfortable furniture beds most mod cons to enable self catering - lovely sun terrace as well as lots of areas to sit out of the sun

Will come back again hopefully

Stunning Villa

  • 5 of 5

Over the years my husband and I have rented numerous villas and houses in both the UK and abroad during holidays with our two children (aged 19 and 20). We devote a considerable amount of time when it comes to selecting where to stay and as a result we have never really been disappointed with the choices we've made. What was pleasantly surprising about Jacques and Alison's villa was that the descriptions and photographs on their website didn't quite do their villa justice as it was really more beautiful than we could ever have imagined! The villa was immaculately clean with every room so tastefully decorated with soft furnishings (cushions, towels etc) beautifully coordinated.

The outside area was also fabulous - breathtaking views, good sized pool, sun loungers, barbecue and lots of tables/chairs to eat al fresco!

We arrived at the villa late in the evening and were warmly welcomed by the owners Jacques and Alison who generously provided us with bottles of water, coffee, tea AND bottle of wine. They also gave us lots of very useful information as to where to eat, places to visit etc.

I have no hesitation in recommending this property - it's impossible to fault and it is definitely the most beautiful and most well-equipped villa we've ever stayed in. Thank you Jacques and Alison for your warm welcome to your beautiful villa and for your help during our first holiday to the Cote d'Azur!

Angela, John, Sarah & Cameron Forester

Fantastic well equipped villa with beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

The villa was even better than expected. The views are stunning both inside and out. There are panoramic views of the mountains and perched villages and inside the original artwork is an added lovely touch. The villa is well equipped, spacious and a real home from home (but with much better weather!). Although the pool is not on the same side as the kitchen we had no problem with this. There are so many different places to sit and find shade. A perfect holiday all round. Thanks Alison and Jacques for a fantastic stay.

Overall an amazing vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the villa in August. Jacques and Allison are the nicest people and the villa is better than the pictures. It is nice to know that Allison and Jacques live on the property so it was easy if there were any questions. I highly recommend this villa. The only thing for improvement is a better wi-fi so we can do some work. Wonderful vacation! Thank you again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your commentary. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay , and enjoyed meeting you. For hard workers like you , we will definitely install a more powerful Wifi ! Alison and Jacques PS : To be more precise about the property , there is a small house at the back of the land where we live ,completely independent , surrounded by hedges and a separate entrance : the pool and the villa are not overlooked.

Spectacular views

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a hillside getaway with nice views and a pool. What we got was a stunningly chic, fabulously characterful gem with spectacular views and oodles of charm.

It is exceedingly rare, to find this combination, but what makes La Sarrazine special is that it is combined with mod-cons (such as air-con and a washing machine), high standards of cleanliness and shops and restaurants within walking distance.

The villa has original art on the walls and period furniture throughout, so is probably not ideal for very young children, but our teenagers loved it.

The pool is on the opposite side of the property to the front door, which means that if you want a top up of drinks or to nip to the loo you have to go all the way round the villa. The upside of this is that pool is not overlooked and you get spectacular views across two valleys to medieval towns on distant hillsides.

The villa is perfectly located to explore the pretty towns of Gourdon, Tourrettes sur Loup and St Paul de Vence to the North, or go South for people-watching in Cannes, Antibes or Nice.

All in all we loved it.
