Welcoming in all respects. Charming hostess and wonderful environment.

  • 5 of 5

All ready and in excellent order when we arrived. Very pleasant welcome and a hostess who knows the Cote d'Azur intimately and gives great advice on where to go and what to see. Very comfortable rooms and fabulous garden. Can even take in the great views lying on your back in the pool. Will definitely go again.

Beautiful retreat, looking out on the Mediterranean

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect spot for two couples, although there is room for three couples. The house was roomy and private, and the sunny terrace overlooking the pool was perfect for breakfast and evening meals too. Everything was as described, and we would love to return.

The property is a dream.Absolutely perfect for a family but also for couples wishing privacy.

  • 5 of 5

Everything was ready to perfection. We enjoyed the pool and the beautiful gardens in the privacy of a quiet and spiritual atmosphere in connection with Nature and not far away from the see. The house is beautiful and full of interesting corners and books. The views are breathtaking. We were very happy in our stay and for sure intend to come back in a next opportunity. Penny Burns is an ever attentive and discrete host full of charm and always ready to help with directions and good advise about the region.

Stunning views and a real haven

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this lovely property. The views from the terrace are breathtaking and mesmerising. The house is lovely everything you could need. The pool is fantastic too. Penny the owner is really lovely and she really helped us with an issue we had with an earlier property and actually saved the day for us, by letting us book at short notice - thank you. Penny is very knowledgeable on the area too and key places to visit. She's a very special lady. I would highly recommend this property and we hope to return. Thank you Penny for an amazing stay.
