Several emails were exchanged, and they provided photos of the route, as this little gem is not on the beaten track. Bottles of beer and other cold drinks in the fridge to welcome us. Thanks to the photos, we found the property with little difficulty. Do not be put off on arrival by the plain, windowless wall adjacent to the entrance door. The studio has a window at the rear with panoramic view across a deep valley to a few neighbouring houses on the other side. We spent much of our time on the deck chairs and patio set on the decking outside the entrance door. A sunny but shaded spot. This abuts a narrow gravel driveway past the property to a scattering of other owner occupied residences, but is very quiet, with vehicles passing only occasionally as resident families go about their business. The inside of the studio and all of its equipment and furnishings are only a few months old, and everything from kitchen to shower is pristine. Everything was provided, from hairdrier to iron to poker dice, packs of cards and everything in between. TV is French only, so I suggest you download movies or TV series to phone or tablet and connect via a suitable HDMI cable for some evening viewing. The studio is a lesson in how to maximise the available space and fit it out with everything a travelling couple or small family needs for a pleasant break. If you are looking for low cost and compact, but beautifully appointed self catering accommodation, relatively close to the expensive French Riviera resorts of Monte Carlo, Monaco, Nice and Cannes, this is the place for you. We have very few words of French, and the owners just a little more English. This was disappointing only because it would have been nice to talk about our backgrounds and to engage more with them and their two delightful young sons. My only reservation would be that the studio is 10 miles into the hills. Roads are narrow and windy, but just take it steady and enjoy the view. I came here on a "road trip", so it was perfect for me. You will need your own transport to make the most of this hideaway location

The apartment was a good size for us with 3 bedrooms. We had everything in the apartment that we needed and the listing description was accurate regarding location, layout and amenities. An extra sofa had been added to the living room which was really comfortable since we all could enjoy watching Euro football games on TV. The apartment was clean and well maintained with air condition, Satellite TV, wifi and a location close to Nice, Antibes and Cannes. The garden is huge with a trampolin, a goal for ball games and a really nice swimming pool which we used every day. The pool is not heated but in June there is no need for that. It is warm enough. There is an entrance gate to the house and we got a remote control to open and lock it. It gives a secure feeling having the house and the car inside a locked gate during the night. The owners Sandrine, Gregory and their children live in an apartment in the same house and that really helped. We got an exceptional service from them. Sandrine showed us the apartment when we arrived, and recommended places to visit and gave us direction to a Super Market and bakery. When we needed information it was easy to call here, send SMS or visit and she helped with everything we needed. It was no problem to add one person to stay in the apartment for the last two nights of our stay, and she offered us extra bed linen for him to sleep in the sofa. Sandrine and her family really exceeded our expectations. One night we arrived after midnight in a victory mood after having watched Iceland beat England in Final 16 in Nice. When we approched the gate we saw that the family had put posters on it and written: “You are the Champions” and “Til hamingju” in Icelandic which means “Congratulations”. They had also drawn the Icelandic flag on the poster. We were so happy about this and it shows the attitude towards their guests. I really recommend this apartment for families. The swimming pool and the garden is awsome. In addition to close location to Cote d'Azur there are really nice villages higher up in the mountains close by which are worth visiting, like Vence and Tourettes-sur-Loup. We had our best vacation so far in this lovely apartment and the Icelandic football team made us and the whole Icelandic nation very happy by showing great performance on the pitch! Thank you Sandrine, Gregory and children for being so helpful and friendly.

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.
