The facilities are great for adults and children with comfortable seating, SKY TV and a great library of DVDs and books to read.

About Nicola Coleman and Jeff Gitter
We're both born and bred Londoners living and working in London. This apartment is very much our second home, bought because we love the area. Living in a busy city means means that our lovely villa-apartment in the sun is a real bolt-hole and place we enjoy whenever we can - which isn't often enough!
Nicola Coleman and Jeff Gitter purchased this apartment in 2007
Why Nicola Coleman and Jeff Gitter chose Mandelieu-La-Napoule
We think that the property is gorgeous. It sleeps 5/6 people and has three bathrooms, a spacious living room but most importantly, a private heated swimming pool, large terrace and pretty garden. We try to make some improvements each year and this year it's been a brand new, luxury kitchen with all mod cons, some lovely garden lighting and a fresh coat of paint thoughout . It is on a beautifully kept private domaine which provides added security and peace of mind. In return for peace, serenity and security, You'll need a car whilst you visit but that's just about the worst inconvenience. All of our previous guests have loved it here as much as we do.
What makes this apartment unique
I guess that the unique benefits are peace and quiet, our private heated pool (heated pools are unusual in this area), private terrace and garden with lovely shaded areas should you wish to escape the sun and spectacular views over the Esterel Valley. Proximity to bustling Mandelieu, picturesque La Napoule and the bright lights of Cannes as well as being accessible to Juan les Pins, Antibes, Valbonne, Biot, Nice, Ville Franche, Beaulieu and at a pinch, St Tropez are a definite plus.
Guestbook comments from the owner
We had a fantastic time all week and felt so at home even though it was our first holiday in France, it was kind of weird! We had a warm welcome from Julian, the apartment was very clean and tidy on arrival and it is the perfect place we could have been to. We loved the setting and the interior decor, the magnificent views from the garden and the pool topped it all off. It exceeded all of our expectations.
We will definitely go back, if not next year it will be the year after.
