Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great stay at the Casa Nostra ! The fully equipped house is lovely, stays cool even with warm weather

The kids (and us as well) enjoyed the swimming pool a lot, as well as the garden.The environment and the views are magnificent and the location is perfectly situated for really nice canyons.We will certainly recommend Casa Nostra to our friends.

Best regards

Truly Breathtaking

  • 5 of 5

Just had a wonderful relaxing two weeks at Casa Nostra,the best villa in France we have stayed in. And would highly recommend to anyone. The property is truly fantastic and more than well equipped, if its peace and tranquility and stunning views, you want in a holiday you wont be disappointed. The private pool is very inviting, and the location gives you the choice of beautiful villages, Mountains scenery or a Beach day on the Med.

Superb villa in a wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from 3 weeks in this lovely villa. Villa equipped with everything we could have needed and so much more. Such a lovely rural area. You are not isolated as there are properties around Casa Nostra, yet none of them overlook you so you have total privacy and relaxation if you want it or can be very active as there is so much to do around this area. We are regular visitors to this part of France and this is the best villa we have ever stayed in around here. Cathy the owner is a pleasure to deal with and contacted us immediately on our return to ensure all OK. We would not hesitate to recommend Casa Nostra for a perfect holiday for couples and families alike. We hope to return very soon.

Fantastic property

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at Casa Nostra. The house had everything you could possibly want (except we couldn't find any of those things you twist into sweetcorn to hold it!!)The pool was lovely and warm, there was everything you needed for outside as well - towels, inflatables, goggles, picnic basket....etc.

Ideal for teenagers - they lived downstairs and we lived upstairs and we just shared the kitchen. They had a PS2 with loads of games to play, DVDs to watch, brilliant!

The area is beautiful, stunning scenery with brilliant walks close by.

Thank you Cathy and Steve for making it a home from home.

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

Casa Nostra couldn't have been better. Listing was very accurate, owner easily contacted and very helpful, as were her nearby managers. Home was very clean, stocked with all the amenities, and pool was glorious. Small village of Fuilla is quiet and feels remote, but easily accessible. We had a fun time swimming in nearby swimming hole as well. Very hot this year, but home remained nice and cool at night. We would definitely return another for another vacation.

Superb villa, peaceful location and stunning views

  • 5 of 5

The villa was really superb. It provided everything we needed and more! It was located on the edge of a small, quiet village down a country lane. Close enough to one or two other houses not to be isolated but was very private and peaceful.Spotlessly clean and very well maintained. Somehow it felt just like being at home and we relaxed as soon as we walked in through the door!

The owner could not have been more friendly, organised, efficient and helpful. The managers, who live 15 minutes drive away, were equally friendly and helpful and were on call in case of any queries or problems

We would most definitely recommend this property to friends or relatives. There is something for everyone in the area - from animal parks and beaches for younger children, more challenging activities for older ones (canoeing, rafting etc.) hiking in the mountains to suit all abilities, many historic sites and interesting villages. Wine tasting, good food and drink.............. So much to do and see if you can drag yourselves away from the comfort, peace and tranquility of the villa and pool.
