Our Home in France!!
Bev and I (“young” widow friends) spent 3 wonderful weeks in Villa Oleander! I had a knee that was misbehaving so we spent more time than we had planned in our home with “the million dollar view”! What a treat that was....dining alfresco on our terrace with candles, flowers and wine!
Our visiting friend from Montreal was enchanted!
The entire house was lovely and our bedrooms, very comfortable.....great pillows!
Our kitchen was a pleasure to work in. We had everything we needed and more. We love cooking and food shopping was NOT disappointing. Visits to the Carrefour for staples and wine...Le Grand Frais for everything else and the upscale shops in Valbonne for everything else and more! They had wonderful prepared meals, pates and cheese. And, of course, always a stop at the Patisserie on Ave. Saint Basile for our daily baguette. I think we became “French foodies” !
Alizataxi was a godsend! She drove us to the door of La Place de Mougins where we had a delightful dinner. She also took us on a 4 hour tour along the Mediterranean ending up in Eze..... Beautiful!
Lunches out were always a treat. L’Amandier de Mougins was very special. We also loved Resto des Arts (moules et frites) and Broche de Fer ( Soupe au Poisson). Moulin de Mougins was very disappointing.
Lucy, the delightful English girl who came to clean couldn’t do enough for us.
Claire was superb. She went to great lengths to make our stay perfect. We had a few travel changes due to “the knee” and she was most helpful with those.
We loved our stay in our “Home in France” and would love to return!!
Villa Oleander is a special place!
