Early summer sun

  • 5 out of 5
We had a fantastic week (too short) at Villa Irene with my friends and teenage son at the start of summer 2008. The villa is bright, sunny and modern, the upper floor bedrooms and full length balcony giving great views and a feeling of proximity to the med. We walked to the small pretty beach nearby most days but there is a larger beach at Agay a short drive or 40 minute walk away if you prefer it to be livlier. There are a few local restaurants but “Matuzia”, with its Moroccan/French food and relaxed atmosphere was easily our favourite. The setting of the villa provided a range of activities from easy hiking and mountain biking in the Esterel National forest, golf and tennis at Vallescure to shopping and dining in Cannes.
Katie and her team were very helpful and accommodating and we will be hopefully returning for another visit in the near future.

Great place for family vacation

  • 5 out of 5
We had a fantastic 2 weeks' vacation at Villa Irene with our friends - we were 7 people - 4 adults and 3 kids (9-15 yrs. old). My older son joined us with his girlfriend for the first week in the studio – perfect arrangement. Villa Irene is seating 40 meters from the sea (1 min walk, semi-private rock), and 150 m from a beach. The bedrooms are great, all of them facing the sea and have a balcony with a great view. The house is modern, have a lot of space, the kitchen is well-equipped with all-you-need, the bathrooms are really state of the art, high-speed internet, and the pool is very nice. The location is unbeatable - Antheor is a perfect place for vacation - you can have a rest , go to day trips in Provence, or enjoy the nearby cities (Cannes, Nice, and Saint Raphael) for shopping and culture. You can use a car, or the train - which is 7 min walk for the Villa. At Agay beach - 5 min drive- we enjoyed water sports such as wind surfing. Pierre-Jean is the local manager and he is very nice and very cooperative.
The only criticism –While all bedrooms have air-conditioning - the studio is without air-conditioning, and we were not aware that this is the case. It is not in the description in the HomeAway site.
In summary - we recommend on Villa Irene without hesitations, and hopefully returning for another visit in the future.

Wonderful villa with beautiful sea view

  • 5 out of 5
We spent a wonderful week at this villa in July. The villa was well equipped and in a great location, a stroll to the beach. The villa manager was a pleasure to meet.
Highly recommended.

Villa Irene

  • 5 out of 5
Villa Irene, Thank you!
Had an absolutely fabulous holiday, weather was gorgeous and accommodation was definitely top notch. Plently of living space, fantastic views from the bedrooms and the bathrooms were very luxurious couldn't ask for anything better. The villa was very well kept, very clean and the outside area was lovely. It was great having BBQ's with the family and the kids enjoying the pool. The villa is a stone's throw away from the beach which was very handy and just a sort 20 minute journey to Agay.
Will definitely be back! thank you :)

Villa Irene antheor

  • 5 out of 5
Myself and family visited villa Irene in may 2011.
The villa is well maintained and very clean.
There is a great view of the bay from the bedrooms and balcony.
A visit to Cannes film festival was only 45 mins away.Beautiful beach and resteraunts
A day trip to monte Carlo casino was 2 hrs away and an amazing experience.
The pool at the villa was great during the day as it got pretty hot .great view over the bay from the decked/pool area.
Antheor beach 2 min walk away is sandy and safe.
Overall a great holiday and hope to return in the near future.

The location, and amount of space was great. Unfortunately, the kitchen was quite worn, and trash bin area under sink filthy. Bedding and linens were just average. The owner and property manager need to be more clear re: deposit agreement. Upon arrival, we had 12 in our party, instead of 9. there was no actual contract signed, just "arrival info" which never stipulated extra cost,etc The property manager never mentioned this as an issue. But after returning home, we were told the security deposit will not be returned due to extra people and leaving dishes in the sink!(this is routine cleaning) Unbelievable. We have stayed at several luxury properties in France, and never had this issue. What a hassle - now we have to submit a complaint to Home away rental guarantee re: deposit loss . Amy/Neec

Owner's Response: This party have posted a mediocre review because they have had a deposit deduction. I will deal with their points in turn.

The kitchen is very modern and extremely well equipped and could never be described as 'worn'. The trash bin may have been dirty but that's the point of a trash bin.

The bed linen is all good quality linen. We have never had a compaint about this.

As the reviewer admits, they showed up with 12 people when they had booked for 9. Our villa sleeps a maximum of 10 and we had actually given them a discount on the price for 10 people. They asked our villa manager on arrival if they could have additional bed linen for the inflatable double matresses which they had brought with them.

Six hours after they were due to arrive they called our manager to say they were lost about 25km from the villa. He went to find them and guided their convoy back to the villa. At their checkout they wanted to leave at 3am.

Our terms and conditions (which they received) stated that there would be a charge for extra people and for out of hours arrivals and departures. We have to pay our villa manager for these additional charges and simply passed them on to the group.

Following their departure it was discovered that a coffee machine was missing (presumed broken and disposed of) and several beach towels were also missing. They left all five bathrooms, the kitchen and the beds in such an appalling state that we had to pay for additional cleaning costs.

Throughout their stay they were rude and dissmisive when dealing with our villa manger. The deposit deduction which was made comes nowhere near to compensating us for the losses/additional costs resulting from their stay.

The villa is located very close to the sea with the dramatic Parc National de l'Esterel as a backdrop. It is situated on the main coast road between Cannes and St Tropez. The sandy beach of Antheor is a couple of minutes walk where there is also a campsite with a shop, restaurant and snack bar. There are a couple of other restaurants within walking distance of the villa and the village of Agay with it's lovely stretch of sandy beach is a few minutes drive. Here there are shops, several restaurants and a market on a Wednesday morning. For those looking for something more lively the bustling resort town of St Raphael is only twenty minutes drive where you can also do boat trips, water sports, just admire the super yachts or shop in the evening markets.

There are buses that run along the coast road between St Raphael and Cannes and the train station is less that ten minutes walk and the trains run from St Raphael to the Italian border.

Other Activities: hiking
