About Martyn Hudson & Ann Colk

Greetings from Martyn and Ann

We are a Brithish couple who have been coming to the south of france for many years and when the opportunity arouse to move here permanatley we could not refuse the offer. We are a semi-retired couple who run the villa for a private owner who lives in the area, we live on site in a seperate appartment. We will be here if you need any help or for any emergencies that may occur. Our previous clients have found this an asset as it makes them feel that they are recieving a personal service.

lovely, peaceful location and well equipped villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely peaceful break at this secluded villa.

The villa was lovely and absolutely spotless, well equipped and the garden outside was beautiful. It was great that there was plenty outside for the kids with badminton, table tennis etc.

Ann and Martin were really helpful with any queries about where to visit/ using the barbecue and welcoming with a welcome pack when we arrived. We will go again!

Lovely property with super hosts

  • 4 of 5

Superb villa, comfortable, well-equipped and clean. Lovely tiled floors and pine ceiling in the living areas. Views across the local valley to Grasse and its surrounding hills. Peaceful location on a hillside outside Mougins but with slight background traffic noise in the evenings from the distant expressway in the valley.

We loved sitting outside on the terrace, with plenty of shade available, and enjoyed the lovely pool. It was a hot fortnight and the air-conditioning in the living area and main bedroom was a real boon. We enjoyed visiting local villages like Mougins and Valbonne, and day trips further afield to Antibes and Monaco.

The hosts Martyn and Ann were most friendly and very helpful, but unobtrusive living below. Our wheelchair was no problem. Thanks to them for a lovely holiday.

Peaceful villa with a great pool

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in this villa, which is very spacious, has everything you could possibly need and a great swimming pool. The location is excellent since it is close to Cannes, Nice, Monaco and many more great places to visit for days trips, going to the beach or when going out for dinner. The pool and outside facilities were key for us - the pool is big, with a proper deep end and diving board, which kept our children (16, 12 &10) occupied for hours. The thing which sets this villa apart from others is having Ann and Martyn on site - this may seem like a negative but it is not. They keep quietly out of the way unless you need something and then they are super helpful and willing to go the extra mile if it helps you out. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this villa.

Relaxing week in comfortable family home

  • 4 of 5

Our week in La Couaroye was a super relaxing holiday. Martyn and Ann were friendly and approachable hosts who made us feel at home in an unobtrusive way. With perfect hot and sunny weather the garden, various outdoor seating areas and pool were in constant use by us and we spent less time in the house which is spacious and comfortable and retains its original character. Local services are available in 5 minutes by car as described and slightly further afield are Mougins (art, restaurants, museum), Valbonne (cafes, restaurants, really good butcher and greengrocer), Grasse (old town, perfumers) and at the coast Golfe Juan (good Scuba school), Antibes, Cannes, Nice, Monaco all less than an hour away.

Absolutely fabulous !!!

  • 5 of 5

Our second visit to this delightful 'very French' villa in an amazing rural backdrop. The area is very peaceful and an extremely relaxing holiday was enjoyed by all. Ann and Martyn were the perfect hosts, always on hand if we needed them but at the same time kept themselves in the background and were certainly not invasive on our privacy - we were left to get on with our holiday at our own pace. The villa is spacious, clean and very well kept. Martyn and Anna even shared their culinary skills one night when they invited us to a barbeque. Will certainly be paying a visit again, hopefully next year. Excellent all round !

Friendly, comfortable and peaceful spot

  • 4 of 5

Martyn and Ann literally took us in after we had booked a different OwnersDirect property that sadly was filthy. They couldn't have been more accommodating to a family in need of a roof over their heads and we couldn't have had a more enjoyable week. The pool area is within view of the kitchen which makes keeping an eye on the kids easy, the bedrooms are comfortable and spotlessly clean and the house is in a lovely peaceful spot overlooking the valley and out of reach of the noise of the main road. It's a fabulous spot if you need somewhere where you don't want the worry of children rampaging around, as they can't get out and it's got plenty of wipe free surfaces as well as being within easy striking distance of the beaches in Antibes and Cannes and the "villages" of Valbonne, Grasse and Monte Carlo. As hosts Martyn and Ann couldn't be more welcoming. Highly recommended and we're heading back next year.
