About Kim Woodley

I'm a recently retired Headteacher who enjoys holidaying in this most wonderful part of the south of France. My family of all ages from 1 week to 93 have enjoyed fabulous holidays at all times of the year in our special holiday villa. We are delighted to invite others to enjoy our house when we cannot be there. To ensure you have a happy holiday we have a wonderful local English lady (Karen) who looks after the house and guests and also Steve who cares for the pool, hot tub and gardens.

Kim Woodley purchased this villa in 2004

Why Kim Woodley chose Esterel - Fayence

We bought this holiday home in 2004. We had searched along the south of France for a house that was in a quiet location but easy to reach shops, local markets and the beautiful hilltop villages as well as being near enough for our youngsters to get to the beaches and the lively towns of Cannes, Nice, St Tropez etc. We found this house and fell in love! and have since had a magical Christmas there and numerous summer, spring and Autumn breaks. It is a very easy 40 minute journey from Nice airport where the car hire is cheap with a wide choice.

What makes this villa unique

The pool and outdoor hot tub offer the most relaxing days with the evening entertainment being the 2 metre wide home cinema system, boules, table tennis, games or a more leisurely bit of peace watching the amazing sunsets.

Fantastic holiday in a fantastic villa

  • 5 of 5

Family of 4 adults stayed in the villa for 1 week, and enjoyed every minute. The villa catered for all our needs and was very well equipped. We happily spent most of our days relaxing poolside and enjoying the fabulous views. The outdoor kitchen was great and had plenty of use during our stay.

We didnt venture too far, except for popping to Monaco which was not too far away, around 40mins. There's plenty to do around the villa and places to explore. There's also a good supermarket no more than 5-10mins away by car.

We were greeted and taken care of throughout our stay by Karen, who we could ring day or night to resolve any issues. This was a nice touch and could prove useful.

We have been on numerous villa holidays in the South of France over the past 15years and this one ranks highly. We will definitely return as soon as we can...but for 2 weeks this time :)

Great holiday at this beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a very relaxing and enjoyable holiday in this lovely villa. The view from the pool terrace is fantastic and the pool was large enough for all our inflatables. We loved eating dinner at the large pool house table while watching the sun set and drinking the local vino. Kim (the owner) provided great information before out travels and Karen and Steve who manage the property are both very pleasant and helpful. The local restaurants are a short drive away and are very reasonably priced. We recommend "Le Lac" overlooking the nearby Lac de Saint-Cassien

Villa au calme, avec jolie vue et proche de tout

  • 4 of 5

Cette villa est bien située, dans une rue à très faible passage, en hauteur, avec un joli panorama, permettant de voir les couchés de soleil. La villa est très proche de l'axe Draguignan-Grasse et autres voies principales. proche également des supermarchés, permettant de facilement s'alimenter, et pourtant, on n'est pas dérangé de cette proximité, étant en recul, à quelques centaines de mètres de la chaussée. Donc, un excellent compromis entre facilité et tranquillité.

La piscine, chauffée par une pompe à chaleur, est vaste, et juste devant le panorama. La piscine manque par contre d'une bonde de filtration au fond et les "yules" et cloportes (sorte de 1000 pattes) s'accumulent vite de jour en jour au fonds de l'eau. Cela demande donc un peu d'effort le matin avec le filet mais pour le reste, la piscine est un vrai régal.

Le pool house, au bout de la piscine, est un vrai bonheur, avec son ventilateur, four à pizza, etc... On y a mangé tous les jours, le ventilateur éloignant les moustiques, avec un air frais et une vue sur le couché de soleil.

L'équipement en sièges de jardin est bon et les coussins sont épais et agréables.

la maison est climatisée partout, avec une seule clim dans le séjour, ce qui était un peu juste (25.5°c) mais acceptable. Les chambres sont par contre très bien refroidies, elles sont vastes et la literie est très bonne.

Le jacuzzi est le plus beau qu'on ait utilisé à date, récent, en parfait état, beaucoup de réglages, mais il est moyennement placé, à notre goût, dans la propriété, étant complètement séparé de la piscine (un niveau plus bas). Cela plaira aux groupes multi-couples, ou un couple pourra être tranquille tandis que l'autre est dans la piscine, nous, cela nous a dérangé, mon épouse ne pouvant pas être dans le jacuzzi pendant que j'étais dans la piscine, tout en étant proches l'un de l'autre.

Pour le reste, le Home Cinema (Vidéo-projecteur et ampli 5.1), et l'appareillage en général, (électricité, TV, etc...) sont relativement vétustes et pourront entraîner des complications pour raccorder du matériel récent (HDMI manquants).

Il y a une TV mais pas de raccordement au câble, ni au satellite, les DVD, certes nombreux, sont uniquement en anglais, il faut le savoir si on réserve via Homelidays français.

Globalement, nous avons passé de très bonnes vacances dans cette villa, et les quelques problèmes que nous avons pu avoir (vétusté, premiers locataires francophones), ont été réglés avec sérieux, compréhension et réactivité.
