Pefect in every way

  • 5 of 5

Alison and Jacques were the perfect hosts and the property was perfect for us. As a family of 4 plus 2 grandparents the lay out really suited us. The view is amazing and you can while away hours just sitting and relaxing outside looking at the view. The local restaurant was great, delicious food and very reasonable. There are supermarkets a short drive away or a 5 min walk takes you into the local village where you can pick up bread and fruit/vegetables. We had a great time, loved the pool, the location, the weather, the house and the hosts - hopefully we will return again

Nice comfortable villa with stunning views.

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely week in the property which is well equipped with modern interior. The house is charming when viewed from the pool and the views are truly awe inspiring. The villa is less than 45 mins drive from Nice airport if the traffic is not heavy and there are lots of interesting villages to visit nearby. Grocery shopping is convenient and there is a plethora of restaurants to chose from. If you are looking for a relaxing holiday this place is perfect.

A special place

  • 5 of 5

La Sarrazine is in a lovely secluded spot with some fabulous views.

The house itself is lovingly furnished and well equipped. It is without a doubt, one of the best places that we have stayed at. We had some lovely evenings on the terrace drinking rose and watching the sun set over the hills.

It is also well placed for trips to the coast as well as the local hill top villages.

Thank you Jacques and Alison for making our stay so easy and relaxing.

Property with amazing views.

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful family holiday in this lovely property. The upside down living allows you to enjoy the stunning views. The house is very well equipped for comfort and offers a variety of eating areas inside and out. In other properties we have stayed at the pool was cleaned daily.

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
