Fantastic house that ensure a comfortable vacation

  • 5 out of 5
The house and the property is actually more beautifull than the pictures shows. We stayed for 14 days, and mostly we spent our days by the pool :-)
The area around the house is quite steep, and the road are narrow. so a small car is better than a big!
We were 5 adults and two children and we loved the house, the view and the swimming pool.
A drive from the house down to the old town in Nice takes only 8 min. 3 min drive down to the supermarket, and 10 min walk to a smaler supermarket (spar).
Pamela who coordinate everything is very hepfull and kind, she is allso an excellent chef.

Regards Trond and Marthe

Dream-Villa in 15 min. distance from Nice centre

  • 5 out of 5
We spent 7 beautiful days in the villa Escale in Nice in May 2013 and would like to recommend it for other prospects.The villa is large enough to accomodate 8 adult persons. There are 2 major bedrooms with ensuite bathroom and 2 smaller bedrooms which share one bathroom.
The kitchen is completely equipped, there is a charcoal grill as well. The living room with a large sofa features a large flat screen TV, with Sat channels, so we could watch German TV. Free WiFi is also available.

Since the villa is almost brandnew everything is in mint condition. The architecture is beautiful and there are many nicely designed details. The highlight is of course the pool and terrace with some beatiful sea views. The terrace is southwest facing, which means, that you will enjoy noon till late in the sun, but earlybirds will have breakfast in the shade.

The pool is not heated, so the water temperature was around 18-19 'C in the end of May, which was a bit too cold for some members of our family.
The driveway is big enough for 2-3 cars.

The property management is very friendly and helpful. All inquiries were replied within 24h.

What else would I need to know?

Be aware, that you need a car, there is no shop or restaurant in walking distance. bakery and supermarkets are about 4 km away. For dining, you will prefer to drive down to the Promenade of Nice, which takes about 10 minutes.

The corniche road up to the villa is quite tight and winding, so you need some driving skills. The driveway down to the house is quite steep and narrow. We had no problem with a mid size Mazda SUV and a VW Touran, but I'm afraid a larger car like a Mercedes S or BMW 7series will not be able to manoeuvre around the steep corner of the driveway.

Excursions: We visited Grasse (perfume capital), Antibes and Monaco which are all in about 1 hour distance and of course Nice several times.

Summarizing we spent a perfect week with 2 families with adult children. If we come back to the area some time in the future, we will have a look, if villa Escale is available for sure.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments and we are pleased that you enjoyed the villa. Here are just a few details about your comments:
The pool can be heated. Ask the manager preferably before arrival due to the delay to heat it.
If a car is recommended for commuting from the villa, you can go to supermarket and bakery by a footpath which is less than 1 kilometer long.
The corniche de Magnan is quite narrow and winding, but buses and trucks circulate on this way..
Some of our guests came with large sedans or vans and have always accessed the property.

Captivating Home Base

  • 5 out of 5
Upon arriving at the Villa Escale, we were greeted by Pamela, our most gracious host, who familiarized us with the accommodations and surrounding area. Having her pick up a few basic food items to get us started was much appreciated after our long journey from the States. Throughout our stay, Pamela was only a phone call away, at our service at all times.

Using the Villa Escale as our home base, my fiancé and I, along with another couple, thoroughly enjoyed our time in Nice, touring the surrounding towns and nearby cultural sites. The villa, with its views of Nice and the Mediterranean, is just as captivating as the web photos depict, and was equally sparkling and comfortable, equipped with most of the accoutrements we needed. The villa was far more spacious than four people would require, but we enjoyed the luxury of having our own space.

Lounging by the pool and basking in the autumn sun was heavenly, with the occasional friendly visit of the neighbor’s cats. The pool water was far too cool for most of us, but we choose not to heat it, as we thought the cost outweighed the potential benefits.

The cheering of the soccer team on the weekends and the sounds of children playing in the schoolyards during the weekdays, echoed up toward the villa from the valley below. It was bothersome initially, but then we learned to embrace the sounds of the bustling existence surrounding us.

We recommend renting a car that has a tight turning radius and preferably automatic transmission, as negotiating the hair-pins turns on the narrow roads leading up to the villa and the driveway is all quite challenging to anyone not familiar with that terrain. We learned the hard way, with some close calls, and decided to exchange our car for a more appropriate vehicle.

Overall, we were certainly pleased with the Villa Escale and hope to return one day soon.

L'expérience ''Villa Escale''

L'expérience ''Villa Escale''
  • 5 out of 5
En famille, nous avons eu le privilège de profiter de la Villa Escale en juin 2012.

Cette villa est tout simplement parfaite.

Elle est localisée un peu à l'écart du tourbillon que peut offrir Nice, la vue est remarquable avec la vallée et la Méditérannée comme fond d'écran (même après 2 semaines de séjour, on demeurait en extase devant un tel paysage).

La demeure en soi est impeccable: elle est très bien entretenue, très propre et offre toute les commodités requises pour un séjour sans tracas dans un environnement très confortable (comparable aux hôtels européens 5 étoiles).

Finallement, on ne peut passer sous silence l'accueil et le support remarquable (et en même temps très discret) que nous a offert Pamela, la responsable de la villa et ce tout au long de notre séjour.

En bref, nous avons été ravis par la Villa Escale (et nous sommes des gens assez, même très exigents).
Nous recommenderions aisement cette location (nous avons déjà commencé auprès de notre entourage) au risque qu'elle ne soit pas disponible le jour où nous aimerions y retourner...

Wonderful Villa

  • 5 out of 5
The villa was very nice. It was very well-maintained, well-equipped with contemporary furnishing. Everything that we needed was there. It was truly "home away from home". The garden and views were amazing. The location is only a few minutes to city center by car, which was also convenient.

Pamela, our host was very helpful and getting us set up and suggesting places to go. The service of having initial groceries delivered was very helpful.

The only thing that was not perfect was that the beds were not the most comfortable. They were a bit hard for American standards but not too different from what I have found in European hotels.

very pleasant villa

  • 5 out of 5
We had a lovely and relaxing vacation at this villa. The views were spectacular and the accommodations were excellent. Th villa was new, spacious, well furnished and very clean. Tucked neatly into the hillside just a few minutes by car from Nice, the vistas down the valley to the Mediterranean Sea and north to the Alps were wonderful. Our contact, Evelyne was extremely helpful, pleasant and very accommodating especially during our extended time there due to the volcanic ash occurrence.
The villa met all our expectations and remember if you go, rent a car. It really is a necessity to access the location and to tour the surrounding towns to the north and visiting Nice where there is ample parking.
If you are fortunate to visit this home away home, you will not be disappointed.
