The house has a very traditional feel and not without its quirks but it is a terrific base for a holiday up in the hills and yet in easy reach of the coast. The layout is unusual but it is furnished like a home rather than holiday let. Comfy beds and sofas, a large pool and extensive grounds with wild flowers and fresh herbs. Good selection of DVDs for rainy days and we made good use of the table tennis. There are woodburning stoves for extra heating if needed. Some of the windows have anti mosquito netting which was a great relief!
The property was as described in the details and perfect for two families each with a baby and their grandparents! It has the feel of a family home and is ideal whether the weather is hot ( as it was) or should it be colder, as there is a large garden with some shade if you need it and plenty of internal space in the house. One thing to note however is that the upstairs shower is in one of the bedrooms which might be awkward if you do not know each other well! The pool was immaculately maintained. Montauroux has a splendid bakers and a couple of bars and still has the feel of a local village and there is easy access to supermarkets, Fayence ,other towns Lac St Cassien and the coast.
The manager provided an excellent service at the beginning and end and also with a small problem we had with patio chairs.
The Villa Olivade is a beautiful rustic villa with much character situated in large secluded grounds near the pretty village of Montauroux. Our party of 10 - 6 adults and 4 children- loved the villa which is very elegantly furnished without being unrelaxed. The grounds have lovely old olive trees and there are stunning views across the valley. All the things that make a good holiday were there including a large pool with lots of sun-loungers, a very good gas barbecue and a charcoal grill in the pool house. The kitchen was well equipped and some of the bedrooms have air-conditioning. The nearby Lac St Croix and perched villages are great to visit and there is easy access to the coast - we liked Villefranche-sur-Mer. The property was just what we wanted and we had a great holiday.
Montauroux is a beautiful hill top village located in the area of the Canton de Fayence and close to the Lac de St Cassien. Just a 30 minute drive will take you to either the beaches around Cannes or Frejus St Raphael. There are many local medieval villages with market days and a good selection of local shopping all within easy reach of the villa. The property is situated near to the village and yet in total peace and tranquillity with stunning views towards the mountains. A truly idyllic location.
