Stunning villa in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This villa is in an excellent location with great views over Cap Ferrat in one direction, the Baie des Anges in the other and Mont Boron in between; just minutes from the shops at the Col de Villfranche; and within walking distance of the seafront and restaurants of Villefranche sur Mer. There is a high quality of modern furnishings and equipment, e.g. state of the art entertainment system. The welcome pack with premium champagne, chocolates, fresh flowers and treats for the dog set the scene for a great holiday. Richard, the concierge, was excellent and dealing with the owner, both direct and through his assistant, Ellen, was a pleasure and nothing was too much trouble. We wouldn't hesitate to return or recommend this delightful property to family and friends.

wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the Raquel Meller villa. Everything was perfect: beautiful and spotlessly clean interiors, breathtaking views, remarkable quietness. The concierge Richard has been most helpful during our whole stay. We can't wait to be back and will be recommending the villa to all our friends.

Our only criticism relates to the security deposit of 2500 Euros which we thought a bit excessive ( and of which the owner merely refunded 2490 Euros without providing an explication. Was it the glass that got broken in the dishwasher?)

Owner's Response: We are delighted to hear that you had a wonderful stay at Villa Raquel Meller. I have passed on your kind words to Richard, our concierge, and we are glad you found him helpful. With regards to your comments about the security deposit, I can assure you that we did not make any deduction from your deposit. It was due to small banking charges related to the swift transfer back of your funds. We are happy to refund your E10 with pleasure. The size of the deposit is proportional only to the high standard of the property and its fixtures and fittings. It was our great pleasure to have you as our guests and we would be delighted to welcome you and your friends back for another relaxing holiday at Villa Raquel Meller.
