Beautiful Villa in a stunning Location
Just back from our 1st trip to Nice. I wanted to stay in a hotel, my daughter wanted to try something different. Glad we did, just a 40 minute drive from the airport, this villa provided everything from beautiful views, comfortable beds and all the amenities needed. Friendly locals, great walks and just a short drive to Monaco, Nice and Cannes. We also drove to St Tropez a 2 hour drive but well worth it. Just watch out for the cyclists driving to and from the main town. We also stopped off in Carros on the way back to Airport (small village very beautiful)
Thank you very much for your visit and your kindness.
Always be welcome.
Wonderful accommodations with a great host that was helpful, kind and responded quickly. The apartment was spacious and had all the amenities we need plus some extra. The beds were very comfortable. We recommend this rental!
Walkers' will enjoy.
Comfortable property well equipped inside and out (except for drying cloths!). We had an excellent 12 days using the villa as a base. The village is quiet at night in late summer but is an excellent base for walkers as there are many marked paths in the area and wider region. For us Bouyon was central to visiting places as far afield as Castelanne and Gorges du Verdon to Menton and Antibes on the coast.
Thank you for your nice appreciation.
For drying cloths there is a clothes line in the back of the house and the tumble dryer to cotè of the washing machine, or may be it was not you well if the water tray n ' is not empty!
