Charming yet eclectic house in magnificent Roquefort-Les-Pins
I always find it helpful to give context before providing a review. We are two couples from NYC each with an 8 year old child. We are French speaking seasoned travelers who have been to the Cote d'Azur many times before. This however was our first stay in the Alpes Maritimes. I also try to always write as accurate and fair a review as possible so as to inform any potential future renters.
This house is an authentic, (likely) centuries old stone house that sits atop a hill facing SE offering sweeping views of the lush hills and Mediterranean below. We were completely won over by this area (the hills above the coast) as it offers the best of all worlds: Access to the neighboring towns (St Paul de Vence a particular favorite) and all the culture they provide, and a short drive to the beach towns (Antibes 25 min, Cannes and Nice 30 min).
The outdoors of the house is the star of this property. The terrace shown in the pictures is where we ate all of our meals (though we ate out at restaurants for most lunches and dinners.) The property also has a great pool area (with stereo system) and a zip line, a huge hit with our kids, and a mature fig tree for delicious snacks.
Inside, the house is well-appointed with A/C's, washer/dryer, full range of kitchen utensils, and more. This said, the layout of the house is... quirky. No other way to say it. The orientation of the house is vertical (split level across four floors) and as an example, it is actually easier to get from certain floors to others by going outside and back in rather than using the interior steps. The ceilings are quite low in certain rooms, most notably the kitchen, and I for one (at 6'5"/196cm) slammed my head on a daily basis into door jams, slanted walls, and hanging lights. This said, once upstairs, the bedrooms and living room are quite pleasant, especially the top floor master suite with its bathroom (with overhead shower) and large, high terrace.
All to say, for a week's stay, the house is a great value. Fantastic location, authentic vibe, and plenty of space for 6 people. If we had stayed any more than 7 days, we suspect we would have started to feel the home's shortcomings.
I hope to return to this paradise soon
Reflecting on the amazing time at this perfect property is just like a dream. Anyone who gets the chance to stay at this luxury Mas will never regret it. Every aspect of this Mas is amazing. Rooms are perfect and clean and the outside area for eating is ideal for large parties for day and night time BBQ. The pool was especially perfect for the kids and the seating area around the pool offers great day time relaxing. I highly recommend this place especially for families. I hope to return to this paradise soon.
Luxury Authentic Mas with Pool and Panoramic Seavi
The house was full of character and the bedrooms had stunning views. There is a beautiful terrace where we spent a lot of time complete with great Sonos sound system and garden lights and gas bbq. The pool are was lovely and secluded and had another coal bbq. The views are the best thing about the house and the room at the top has a huge terrace and the most spectacular view. It was the perfect villa to stay in and the perfect location as you are much closer to the beaches than other mountain towns yet you are very close to all the mountain towns and restaurants. There is also a huge supermarket 5 minutes drive away where you can stock up the house. it is all very convenient and very beautiful. Gustave is also very reliable.
Lovely French villa with large private grounds
We had a fabulous week at Villa Caramello. It was particularly hot and the air conditioned bedrooms were ideal. The large outdoor terraces and pool area were spacious and secluded - to sit looking at the amazing view on an evening was wonderful. Perfect for our family of three generations. Highly recommended!
Excellent property with magnificent view
The property is in excellent condition and with perfect location. Good place to have a holiday with family and kids. Love it and definitely will go back.
It was a pleasure having you and we are happy you and your family enjoyed it. We look forwards to hosting you again.
This villa is fantastic, The pool area is great and the whole place is very private. Plenty of things for the kids to do as well. Having dinner at the terrace next to the house and looking at the view is to die for. We are absolutely going back
