About Gill

We are an English couple with 2 teenage boys. Alistair is a Yacht Captain and Gill is a Graphic / Web designer.

We love our home and the opportunities its location offers. It is a great place to live so we are sure anyone visiting will enjoy the French Riviera from the comfort of our home.

We have successfully rented out for the past 5 years and had some great comments on the quality and comfort of our home.

Gill purchased this villa in 2002

Guestbook comments from the owner

As a group family holiday, six adults and two little ones under three, Gillian's home was both welcoming, very well equipped and ideal, great layout for family areas, eating, pool leisure and fun. The pool itself was fabulous, lots of comfortable beds for lounging and sunbathing, a large shallow area for the little ones to stand and play with toys, not heated but not necessary as it is directly in the sun. Perfect location for seeing the Cote D'Azur or nearby villages. Supermarket nearby for all you need for fresh produce, meats and fish for the Bbq. Gillian was very responsive both before our arrival and after if we needed to ask her anything. The pool lady came regularly and cleaners came after the first week and changed bedding, as well as gardener to tend to the lawn area. Very secure property, plenty of activities, badminton, boules, table tennis, etc. Also very private and not overlooked, backs on to woodland bridle area, so take mosquito protection if prone to bites. All bedroom windows have screens on however and ceiling or floor fans. We had many family Bbqs on the terrace whilst the children slept and we recommend Biot and Valbonne for restaurants although they start serving dinner from 7pm so beware if you have little ones and need to eat early. We would not hesitate to recommend staying at Gillian's home, would love to go back again.

Stunning villa in the perfect location

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we booked the villa owner Gill was really helpful. She offered us a flexible arrival to be able to benefit from cheaper flights, and then bought us some food shopping for our first night as we arrived on Bastille Day. The villa is beautiful, with stunning grounds, a perfect pool, badminton courts, boules area and netball post. We rarely wanted to leave, but when we did the villa was a great base for all the local towns. Biot and Valbonne are within 5 mins drive, and Grasse, Antibes, Vence and Eze within 30 mins. You couldn't beat this villa or owner. Thanks for a great holiday.

Luxurious private family villa with lovely pool

  • 5 of 5

We went to this part of France with a large family group in the run up to my son's wedding in Valbonne. We owe a big thank you to the owner Gill, who could not have been more helpful, finding us a second villa nearby and helping us in so many ways and with all sorts of local information. This villa is beautifully and elegantly appointed and equipped, with lovely attention to detail and at the same time it has a very warm homely feel. It is situated in a secluded part of a gated community with a delightful garden backing onto woods. The pool area was really great with enough seating for everyone and plenty of swimming towels provided. The whole family group enjoyed the boules, badminton and table tennis. We made good use of the barbecue and enjoyed having the fire on the terrace in the evenings. There is enough car parking for several cars and it is only a five minute drive to the nearest supermarket and boulangerie. We all loved our stay, and wished we could have stayed on much longer. I really can't recommend the villa or its lovely owner more highly.

07.08.16 Williams review

  • 4 of 5

I arrived on the 07.08.16 for 7days with a group of 10 people (6 adults and 4 children) and found that the villa was everything the owner (Gill) had said and more. Most importantly the accommodation was clean and well maintained, good WIFI near the house, table tennis, basketball net, french boules, barbecue, cinema room and for me the outside sitting area with a fire (nice touch).

We went to Nice (20mins),Biot (10mins) Monaco (50mins), Valbonne (15 mins) and you could walk to local shops but this was about 20mins walk but still nice to have amenities close by, so all in all well located for exploring.

I found the whole experience well managed from start to finish and due to the extra touches like first night shopping done for us and great communication I would definitely stay again so thank you Gill for letting out your beautiful home.

Kind regards

Richard.

I would recommend getting Owners direct villa insurance £70 for peace of mind.

A great holiday for all the family

  • 5 of 5

We visited the villa for our summer holiday and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The resident cat was very friendly was happy to let us feed her. The pool was a great temperature due to the recent hot weather. The children loved the TV room and made use of it especially when the sun was at its highest . The bedrooms were all well equipped and clean. There was a supermarket nearby and there were lots of lovely places to visit that were nearby. We would thoroughly recommend this villa and believe it has enough to cater for everyone.

fabulous villa, wonderful holiday

  • 5 of 5

As a large family group, we spent two weeks here in July. It is a wonderful, well appointed, beautiful villa In a most convenient location with easy access to Nice and the Cote D'Azur.

The pool is fabulous, clean with an array of sun loungers. The outdoor seating area is inviting complete with chairs and sofa and twinkle lights over the canopy at night.

Indoors, the kitchen is well equipped and clean. The bedrooms are light filled and very comfortable.

The owner was professional and a pleasure to deal with throughout. The caretaker was attentive and efficient and was on hand to deal with any queries.

I can highly recommend this property, it will not disappoint on any level

Beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from 2 weeks at this lovely villa. It is situated in a secure development in a private and quiet position. The villa is really well equipped and the owner has gone to great lengths to make sure you have everything you need. The towels, bedding and beds are fantastic and it was great not having to take pool/beach towels with us. The outside space and furniture is also lovely and very attractively arranged. The villa was cleaned and bedding changed half way through our stay. The property is very well positioned for exploring lots of the Cote D'azur. You are only a 10 min drive from Valbonne and Biot which both offer a good selection of shops and restaurants. There is a Caffefour/chemist within a 5 min drive. We used the railway station at Biot to get the train to Monaco which only cost 35 euros for four of us on a Family Pass. The swimming pool is lovely and was cleaned regularly. The children spent most of their time in the pool or using the cosy snug for watching TV. Gill the owner was very helpful when we needed to contact her. All in all we had a lovely relaxing holiday. I would definitely recommend this villa to friends a family. It has everything you need.
