Too good to be true? Holiday villa in Boulouris
This villa looked too good to be true when we found it at short notice for a week before Easter 2012.
The photos suggested that it was a very modern, clean, three bedroomed villa, with an excellent open plan living / dining / kitchen area which neatly flows out, through large doors to a pleasant outdoor living area, with comfortable armchairs and loungers looking out onto a pretty lawn and plunge pool. There seemed to be three modern bedrooms, sharing one crisp bathroom, with both bath and walk in shower.
Perfect for a family of four, with two demanding teenage children. (Which reminds me, the house has a good Wifi connection).
The location also seemed excellent - a short walk to the coast and a very good boulangerie. And a very short drive from the town centre and all the attractions along the coast.
Surely this could not be true? In the South of France? For how much?
Well, we were amazed. The house is better than the photos. It has been lovingly created, is in excellent condition and, importantly, the open plan house just "flows" well, making it easy to live,eat and move around while on holiday. The owners, who live next door, were friendly, helpful and charming.
This is FAR better than the average rental house.
We strongly recommend it.
Do we have any suggestions for change / improvement? Not really, as it is far better than most rentals. If you pressed us, we would say that having two Wifi connections was a limitation, as we had four laptops, four iPhones and a iPad with us, but really it's not important, as there is so much free wifi in France these days in Shops, restaurants and even MacDonalds. And the hot water was probably too hot in the house, for our taste - we would have preferred it cooler.
We will certainly go back again. It is worth going to the South of France JUST to stay in this perfect little holiday rental.
