Comments from clients: We, a bunch of friends stayed at villa CAROLA last year during May for 2 weeks. We had the most wonderful time, just relaxing and sightseeing. Bettina gave us a wonderful welcome and great tips for places to see. We can highly recommend the villages of Eze (above Monaco) and Gordon. We will definitely be back and will recommend villa CAROLA to our families and friends. Gretel, Micha, Katrin, Annegret, Stefan and Juliana from Wien, Austria

Comments from clients: Simply wonderful! We were absolutely speechless when we arrived. The view is gorgeous! 1 week was definitely to short since there is so much to see! St. Paul is only 10 minutes away on foot what a beautiful village and the sea is in very easy reach. Bettina thank you for your suggestion to take the children for a day out at the Marineland in Biot. They were absolutely thrilled and still talk about the shark tunnel and the dolphin shows.

We definitely plan to come back next year. Family Kehricht from Frankfurt, Germany

Comments from clients: Was great! Thank you Bettina! The villa is 1 A, super big. We had a smashing time. The pool was great and weather perfect. We'll book 2 weeks next time. The Antibes food market was a dream. Highly recommended!!!

Fantastisk villa med underbar utsikt.

  • 5 of 5

Först och främst måste vi framhålla våran värd Bettina, mycket proffesionell och hjälpsam.

Villa Carola var ett super mysigt ställe där jag med vänner spenderade 8 dagar, sammanlagt 11 vuxna och 2 barn. Gott om plats, jätte fina rum och riktigt fräscha badrum och toaletter! Utsikten mot den gamla staden st Paul de vence och havet var helt fantastisk. Poolen var mycket uppskattad av hela sällskapet och grill platsen användes flitigt!

Riktigt kul att det fanns ett pingis bord i garage delen.

Den gamla staden (st Paul de vence) var jätte mysig, fanns bra restauranger å mycket att se, kan rekommendera vin provning.

Närheten av Nice, Cannes och Monaco gjorde det lätt att göra dags utflykter.

Men gillar man att ha det lugnt och umgås med nära och kära är villa Carola ett perfekt ställe att koppla av på och bara vara.

Vi kommer absolut försöka att komma tillbaka så snart vi kan.

Två tummar upp 👍🏽👍🏽

Großartiger Aufenthalt an der Côte d'Azur

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben im Juni 2016 einen großartigen Aufenthalt mit vier Pärchen in Villa Carola verbracht. Das Haus und der Außenbereich sind sehr großzügig, so dass immer genug Platz vorhanden war. Für uns war es immer eine harte Entscheidung einfach nur im Garten am beheizten Pool bei einem BBQ (Grill vorhanden) und einer Runde Boule auf der hauseigenen Anlage zu entspannen oder etwas von der interessanten Region zu entdecken. Das Haus ist komplett ausgestattet: Küchenutensilien, Waschmaschine, Wifi, TV, Bouleset... uns fehlte nichts.

Die Abwicklung und der Service waren unkompliziert und sehr nett. Von der Buchung bis zur Abreise wurden Fragen zügig beantwortet und Tipps gegeben.

Wir kommen definitiv wieder. Vielen lieben Dank nochmal.

Fabulous Stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Villa Carola in mid-May for a week. There are amazing views from the villa to St Paul de Vence and down to the Mediterranean in the distance. The driveway to the villa is very steep, and there are no footpaths once at the road, so essential to have a car for day trips, supermarket trips etc. Comprising a large master suite on the lower ground floor, three double bedrooms on the first floor (all en suite), a huge living room, reception hall, kitchen and utility room on the ground floor, it accommodated our family of six adults and a baby perfectly. The swimming pool was fantastic, and we were lucky enough to have lovely sunny weather for our week there so were not tempted to leave the villa that often (other than trips to the Leclerc supermarket a few miles away). The property was immaculate and very well appointed, especially the bathrooms. The kitchen, whilst big, could do with updating. The bbq could also do with an upgrade. Bettina, the property manager, was extremely nice and very helpful. We would have no hesitation in recommending Villa Carola - we had a wonderful week's holiday there!

Views to die for!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a fabulous week at this very spacious villa. The views of St Paul de Vence and the sea around the Cap d'Antibes from the pool, main terrace & upstairs bedrooms are absolutely stunning.

We enjoyed an evening stroll into St Paul de Vence before supper & a drink in the Cafe de la Place, watching the locals playing boules.

Memorable evening meals with 12 family & friends around the large table on the covered terrace outside the kitchen, laughing together, sampling the local rose & with the lighthouse on the cap d'Antibes flashing on the horizon.

We will definitely return.

Owner's Response: Dear Guest, many thanks for your 5 star comments. You all were so very delighted by the views of this villa and it's amazing location. Also by it's size and the heated pool. The villa has very strong wireless internet. Our guest always come with their own smart phones and laptops. All 5 bathrooms are new and in contemporary style. I am very happy to hear that you appreciated the design and strong water pressure. I was in regular touch with some of your family members in regard to their house search. I researched the area for available properties and gave very useful information about location, tax, rates..., even meeting them and I believe that my services and prompt replies were very appreciated by everybody. Please pass my regards to the rest of your family. Keep well and hope to see you again.
