Why Anthony Barker chose Mountainside

We built this house from scratch, so it has our heart and soul firmly imprinted in its design and build...

What makes this villa unique

The comments from guests are inspiring, giving us a deep feeling that we selected the right piece of land and built the Provence style of house that we wanted....

The views are inspiring and the open plan build gives guests a feeling of spaciousness within the house.

We really loved our holiday. We felt at home instantly.

  • 4 of 5

The house is marvellous with breath taking views. We felt at home and relaxed. Anthony was a really useful host helping us when needed and even sorted us some accommodation for an extra night. All the rooms are spacious and comfortable. We didn't want to leave. We definitely recommend Le Vue Parfait for being away from it all but close enough at the same time .

Beautiful home, fabulous views and so private

  • 5 of 5

The views really are superb.

The entertainment/lounge area is fully kitted out. On the rainy day we watched DVD's and had the fire blazing and played Monopoly and then watched the sunset over the bay with the obligatory glass of wine in hand..

The bedrooms are comfortable with large double beds and the bathrooms have showers and baths...

We were part of a crowd of 9 and the kitchen is spacious and well stocked with all the hardware one requires to prepare for a group...

The pool looks lovely although not all of us used it due to the weather.

The highlights for me are the evenings under the terrace with the fire-pit roaring sat at the bench table, chatting drinking and soaking in the perfect view...
