Our family (parents and two teenage daughters), rated our holiday gems to be: The Pool The outdoor pizza oven/bbq area 4 outdoor eating areas (and one great indoor one) Boules area at the back of the house - for great competitive laughs Proximity to the village - which during July/August hosts a six week music festival (we attended a number of free concerts). Things you need to bring: insect repellant if you are prone to bites - the area is very forested a car - you would be missing a lot of touring opportunities here without one good walking shoes for some of the steep local hill walks A good appetite for home cooked pizza with local produce (see pizza oven above!) Merci Nathalie et Regis! We will definitely return!

The house is very well equipped. As we were travelling with 1,5 age child, we were very glad that the owner providef us all nevessary baby stuff (grib, feedig chair, baby bed, baby bath, even some toys and feeding plates and bib). This is definaty the most well equipped rental house we have stayed in! The owners are very lovely and very helpful! Our flight delyed 6hours and we landedat night. They came to pick us up from the airport at night and drowe us back in the morning for us to get the rental car! Super friendly! If we arrived we had a lot of complimentary food, fruits & drink in the house. Even for the baby we had multiple babyfood stuff! The location is perfect. Store (big!), is just a minute drive and reachable by foot also. Monaco & Nice are very close. We definately recommend to stay in this lovely house! We thank Sylvie and Fabrice and his dad!

The hosts, Marie & Guy are such lovely warm people. They offered us cheese bites upon arrival, they had stocked the fridge with soft drinks and there was home-made jam and a large bowl of fruit on the kitchen counter waiting for us :-) They also opened a champagne bottle to toast our stay the day before we departed. The cottage is quite new and is very clean & stylishly decorated. It is much better than the online pics portray it. The general home area is peaceful and beautiful with a very clean swimming pool and very well tended gardens full of different colored flowers. It was so refreshing to be in such a serene part of the world and have all the luxuries of a 5* hotel. We loved it so much and we will visit again.
