Exactly what we wanted!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed 9 nights here..gorgeous pool, lovely, cool, well equipped apartment and charming hosts. The view from the pool area is gorgeous and the surrounding area is very peaceful and tranquil. It makes an ideal base for anyone wanting to explore the cote d'azure - there is a really cheap bus and train service locally and we did not maximise the use of our hire car as a result. Our hosts provided really useful info to make the most of our stay - as a result we went to places that we would definitely visit again. Our thanks to Clare, Tim, their kids and Carlo the dog x

Schitterend appartement op een mooie locatie

  • 5 of 5

Een geweldig appartement voor een gezin met max 4 personen. Het maakt deel uit van de villa van de Engelse verhuurder. Ideaal voor mensen die de Franse taal niet helemaal machtig zijn. Het appartement met zijn dikke muren is gebouwd tegen/in de rotswand, waardoor het binnen in de zomer lekker koel blijft. Het appartement is voorzien van voldoende bergruimte, een grote slaapkamer met tweepersoonsbed en een woonkamer voorzien van een comfortabele slaapbank. Voor de bedden zijn er dekbedden en beddengoed aanwezig.

De natte ruimte is voorzien van wc, wastafel, ruime inloopdouche en wasmachine. Voor deze ruimte zijn er voldoende handdoeken aanwezig.

De keuken wordt door een bar gescheiden van de woonkamer. De keuken is voorzien van een grote oven en elektrische kookplaat en verder het nodige wat er in de keuken hoort, zoals koelkast, thee- en handdoeken. Er is ruimte om zowel binnen als buiten te tafelen.

Dan is er ook nog bij de villa een groot zwembad met een aantal ligstoelen en parasols. Ook voor bij het zwembad worden weer andere handdoeken ter beschikking gesteld. Een locatie om de dag goed te beginnen en/of te eindigen of zelfs een hele dag te vertoeven.

Het huis is gesitueerd tegen een bergwand tussen Valbonne en Biot op 5 minuten afstand van een grote Carrefour en een half uurtje rijden van de prachtige stranden van Antibes. Verder zijn de grotere steden als Nice, Cannes en Grasse binnen 3 kwartier te bereizen. Monaco op een uurtje.

Andere toeristische trekpleisters zijn het mooie bergstadje Saint Paul de Vence, het hooggelegen Gourdon met zijn prachtige uitzichten en Valbonne met zijn brocante en streekmarkten.

Bij de prijs die vermeld staat in de advertentie komen geen bijkomende kosten. Geen toeristenbelasting, geen schoonmaakkosten, geen elektriciteitskosten en geen huur voor handdoeken en beddengoed.

Wat voor sommigen een gemis kan zijn is de afwezigheid van tv en radio. Daarentegen is de WiFi goed.

Kortom: wij hebben 2 weken een prachtige vakantie gehad mede door het appartement en de gastheer, die indien nodig altijd behulpzaam is.

Excellent Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the apartment was enjoyable not only for the daytrips and places we explored, but the property itself. The apartment was roomy, kitchen was well-equipped and the bed was very comfortable. Lots of room in the bedroom for our belongings and space in the living room to spread out and be comfortable at the end of a busy day sightseeing. The pool area was fantastic. We spent almost every morning at the pool, reading, relaxing, just before going out for our day. And at the end of the day we sat at the pool also. Terrific area to spend time. The location of the apartment was ideal. We had a car so getting to the market just a few minutes away was easy. (Bus stops very close by) We also enjoyed nearby Biot for coffee and croissant a few mornings. Cute shops there. We loved visiting area sights. We loved the villages of Eze, Vence and Monaco. Our favorite was Cannes - we visited just a day before the film festival began and we saw the city prepare for this special event. Our hosts (great family, very helpful) suggested that we take the train to Cannes to avoid parking challenges. Great tip. The train was fast and worry-free. Would enjoy a return visit to the apartment to do further exploring of the area - looked like some great walking/biking trails in the area . . . and to relax by the wonderful poolside. (Internet access was excellent). All in all, a great vacation!

Owner's Response: Hi Wendy Thank you so much for your kind words, we're so pleased you had a good stay with us. The pottery festival is in Vallauris on the 8th August this year so you'll have to look out for it another time. Enjoy the rest of the summer, its been a long hot one here, not that we're complaining. Best regards to both of you. Tim, Clare, Rosie and Felix.

Two great and relaxing weeks

  • 5 of 5

The apartment, the pool, the area, the weather and above all the very nice and helpful family - just gorgeous. The sea was removed only 15 minutes by the car. For our one-year-old son specially the pool and the garden were a fantastic experience. Many thanks for the great time. Greetings from Germany!

Lovely relaxing holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a weeks holiday staying in this apartment. Its in a lovely location in a quiet residential area & the owners are very friendly & helpful. We didn't have a car, but the bus stop is only a short walk away and it's easy to get to Valbonne, Biot & Antibes on the number 10 bus. Transport is frequent and cheap so it's a great option. The apartment itself is clean and modern with a well equipped kitchen, fab shower and spacious lounge & bedroom. The pool area is great, a lovely sun trap with views of the forest, mountains and sunsets. We enjoyed eating & drinking outside in the garden & up by the pool. A really lovely week!
