De très bonnes vacances en famille
Enfin une location qui ne prend pas avantage de ses locataires! Le descriptif correspond exactement aux informations reçues par la propriétaire. L'emplacement est magnifique avec sa vue dégagée, le studio très agréable quand on loue a plusieurs familles. Le trampoline a fait la joie des enfants de même que les jeux laisses disponibles par la propriétaire. Le coin piscine est parfait, ensoleillé toute la journée avec des transat pour tous. L'espace BBQ avec sa grande table extérieure permet de manger matin et soir dehors. La cuisine est bien équipée et tout est en quantité suffisante ( verres, assiettes, casserole, robot...). Visites recommandées autour: Biot, Gourdon ( belles promenades), Valbonne, Cannes, le marche de Vintimile en Italie ( a 1h10 de route). Mais franchement nous n avons pas eu le temps de faire tout ce que nous avions prévu durant les 2 semaines de notre séjour car nous étions bien juste la, a Châteauneuf. Le dépôt de garantie nous a été renvoyé dans la semaine suivant notre départ, bref une location que je vous recommande vivement, d'ailleurs nous y retournerons nous même!
The house was as we had expected it, even better. It was spacious, well furnished and decorated and with a great view on the bay all the way to the sea. It has everything you need in a summer stay and has good location. Easy to go everywhere in the Cote d'Azur. Beach, golf. Having the pool is great if you don't want to go anywhere for a day. The village of Chateauneuf is charming with stores for everything you need. Our family (two adults, three children) had a really nice stay and we will come back. We definately recommend.
Outstanding villa, ideal for Cannes, Antibes etc
Beautiful light-filled villa showcasing the owner's wonderful modern art collection. 270 degree panoramic views all the way to the sea. Vast double height lounge area, comfortable good-sized bedrooms, lush garden and sparkling pool. Lots of charming individual touches. Well equipped kitchen. House is cool and pleasant inside even when the weather outside is very hot. The owners are extremely helpful, and a useful guest manual with local touring, restaurant and shopping tips is provided. We had a great stay, very highly recommended.
This was our first time in this region, and we really loved it!
The weather was fabulous, the villa well located allowing us to visit around : Nice, Monaco , the Valbonne market on Fridays , but also perfect to stay put in the villa or at the pool.
The villa was just as described: spacious and perfect for 2 families to enjoy their holidays. The kids had fun with the trampoline and the pool, the garden was big enough for them to run around. The pool area was a dream!
We definitively would recommend it!
Thank you for your kind review, but you were wonderful guests too!
I am glad that your family and your friends' enjoyed this part of France and hope to have the pleasure to see you again.
Home From Home
We've been coming to Le Caroubier for 4 years now, because we feel at home there. This does not feel like 'a rental' because it is not. This is a beautiful family home that is made available for some of the summer months.
Very spacious and full of stunning art (probably not suitable for rough and tumbling toddlers), with breathtaking coastal views from Cannes to Antibes. There is hardly any need to go anywhere as you can enjoy all of this poolside or whilst dining alfresco in the garden. A very short walk gets you to Chateauneuf De Grasse old village and the local Intermarche & Boulangerie, both of which are open all day.
However, we recommend exploring the plethora of attractions nearby that include Gordon (mountain village), Gorge Du Loup (Canyoning for the brave), Valbonne friday provencal market and family dining in the main square, Mougin (Art & Gastronomy), St Paul De Vence (beautiful hill village with the famous La Colombe D'Or restaurant frequented by many famous artists in the 20th century who's works still adorn the walls), The Maeght Foundation (Super Art in a stunning setting), and Antibes (Beaches, old town, marina, SHOPPING and more gastronomy).
You will not be disappointed.
We had the pleasure of spending two wonderful weeks at villa 'Le Caroubier'. The villa was big enough to accomodate even three families with six adults and four children. Everything was very clean and the kitchen well equipped. The pool area was perfect and suitable for children as well offering complete privacy from the neighbours and passing street.
The location of the villa was magnificient and offered possibilities for one day trips to Monaco, Nice, St. Tropez etc. Renting a car is recommendable, if not travelling with your own.
The owner was very friendly and had left instructions and tips to guarantee best possible stay at the villa.
We can sincerely recommend this lovely villa for friends and families dreaming of perfect holiday together under the sun of southern France.
Chateauneuf is a medieval village and is surrounded by the very famous town of Valbonne and Biot. The local market on Friday is typical of the south of France with its flavours and colours. Biot and is known for its glass making factories. For the gourmet, we recommend a visit of the candy making factory Florian, for the view, go to Gourdon and have a drink at Le Nid d aigle where you will hang over the cliff. The perfume factory of Grasse is worth seeing, as well as the village of Mougin where a lot of Picasso's art is available.
All this is within 5 km of the villa.Cannes and its entrance of the world famous film festival is interesting to see when you go for the day to the beach. There is also during the summer a music and light festival. Antibes is a beautiful Provence town, with its city walls surrounding the old town
