PERFECT APARTMENT IN PERFECT LOCATION!!

  • 5 out of 5
My husband and I had the good fortune to stay at Villa La Ponote for three months this winter/spring! We were SO happy there! The apartment is stunning - spacious, bright, lovely furniture, and well-equipped kitchen. It was a bit chilly most of our stay for us to use the terrace as much as we'd have liked, but we sure enjoyed it when we could! Imagine having your own place just literally minutes from the village, or minutes from the beach, with sweet little peeks of the harbor or the sea from some of the windows and the terrace.

Carole, the caretaker, met us at the apartment, and was so helpful throughout our stay. She is a lovely person, and helped make our stay smooth and comfortable. She was quick to answer any questions we might have had, and would appear at a minute's notice if we needed her.

This apartment was ideal for having some friends and family visit while we were there - the beds are all extremely comfortable, and both bedrooms provide ample space. The bathroom is lovely, and the shower is fantastic! Although you are so close to the village, because you are set back and up from it, the villa is extremely peaceful and quiet.

And the location...three minutes either direction brought you either into the heart of the village for your daily shopping at the bakeries, butchers, groceries, and the daily market, or to the beautiful beach with crystal clear blue water. Because we were there so long, we ate at home quite a bit, and had the fun of shopping in the village, making friends with our favorite shopkeepers (everyone is SO friendly), and cooking in the well-equipped kitchen. We found two favorite restaurants in town, which you should not miss: Le Rendezvous, and L'Ardoise (make sure you have reservations!). Fabulous, creative food, and great, friendly service!

I would definitely highly recommend this extraordinary apartment if you are considering a vacation on the Mediterranean! And if you aren't, why not? You'll be glad you did!!

LOVELY APPARTMENT, ON TOP OF THE BEACH.

  • 5 out of 5
Superb property. Spacious accomadation, more than enough room for 3 adults and 1 almost teenager. Beach 1 minute away, lovely little town centre with plenty of bakeries and mini supermarket nearby. Larger supermarket just up the hill past the train station. Car not required. Train station only 5 minutes away. Finally I cant praise the "house keeper" enough. One of the nicest and most helpful people I have ever met.

HANDILY PLACED IF YOU DON'T WANT TO HIRE A CAR

Handily placed if you don't want to hire a car
  • 5 out of 5
Perfectly placed within walking distance of all you require for a relaxing and restful stay. An easy 10 minute walk from the train station and only 1 or 2 minutes to the nearest mini supermarket, bakers and restaurants. A larger Supermarket is no more than 15 minutes walk. The plage de Rencros (a lovely beach) is only a simple set of steps away. Car not required, everything within walking distance.

The appartment is perfectly sized for a family of 4 with 2 children. Well equipped for all you may need.

Finally I cant praise the contact in Bandol enough. Carole was everything and more you require.

INCREDIBLE VILLA, WONDERFUL ATMOSPHERE!

  • 5 out of 5
This villa is quite possibly one of the best we've ever rented. It is incredibly tastefully done, with simple, white, lovely furnishings and adorable details. The kitchen is stocked to perfection. The linens are top quality and beds are more than confortable. You will have plenty of room to spread out and relax. Dorothy and Carole have provided all the beach equipment you could want as well, so you don't have to bring/buy extras (chairs, towels, mats, toys, floats, flippers, etc). Everything is fastidiously clean.

The outdoor balcony is beautiful -- there are two sweet little sea views (one of the harbor, one of the bay beyond Renecros beach. There is a table and a big chaise and PLENTY of room to lounge under the big awning while the occasional market-bound pedestrian wanders by below you. Which brings me to the location of this villa... perfection. A quiet little narrow street RIGHT between the port and the beach. By that I mean that you go down one short set of stairs on your left and you are in the bustling, fun, friendly port (playground, boats, calanque cruises, food, ice cream, crepes, yachts, markets, etc, etc); you go down the other stairs on your right and you are on a huge, well-maintained, lifeguarded sandy beach. What more could you want in life? Oh, and the wild and crazy cliffs of the sentier littoral (the shore hiking path heading toward the calanques) begins just a 5 minute jog from the front door (we are runners and this was part of our daily routine).

Finally, Dorothy and her agent in Bandol, Carole, are amazing. Easy email/phone/text communication both before and during our stay. Carole helped with everything from directions to ideas for our two children. Let me provide two examples: one morning when Carole came to change the linens we mentioned that a fan would be a good addition. When we returned from the beach that day, a new fan had appeared! Carole also helped my husband with obtaining the rental car we needed for our onward journey and patiently assisted us as we loaded up the car to leave.

Overall, we LOVE this villa AND Bandol and will be returning whenever we can.

THE IDEAL HOLIDAY DESTINATION

  • 5 out of 5
This villa is perfect! It is well equipped, beautifully presented but, best of all, it is ideally situated between beach and town. Bandol is a lively place in the summer season so perhaps not the place to come if you are looking for peace and quiet. It offers restaurants, bars and shops to suit every taste and budget and there is even choice when it comes to beaches - two minutes from the villa there is a large, sheltered sandy bay while 10 minutes away there are rocky coves which are great for snorkelling. In fact there are so many different places to relax and watch the world go by in Bandol that once our car was installed in the secure parking garage we didn't see it again until we packed it to come home. Carole, the caretaker, is wonderful and it was reassuring to know that if we had experienced any problems she would have been there to help us.

JUNE AT THE VILLA PONOTE

  • 5 out of 5
The owner was extremely helpful when the holiday was being arranged (and afterwards) and it was good to meet her very well chosen and pleasantly co-operative caretaker on site. The apartment was very clean and well maintained with facilities and layout exactly as depicted in the listing information. A brilliant location, a couple of minutes to town or beach via flights of steps. Very little vehicular traffic though some noise at times from chatty passers-by may disturb sleep. We recommended the apartment to our daughter who also enjoyed her holiday (though in August) and we are both hoping to book another holiday at Villa Ponote in 2012.
