Friends retreat at the Nice Villa
Everything about the house was fantastic. The view, stunning - the pool, the hot-tub, the decor - all outstanding. Everything about this stay was top flight. The house was exactly as depicted in the description, and pictures, and was perhaps even better. The gathering spaces were perfect: especially for a group of friends having a great time. Everything we needed was there, including a lovely piano which was wonderfully tuned. Several of us are professional musicians and enjoyed playing it. The accommodations were very beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. Patrick and the local managers were very responsive with every inquiry, and very accommodating to our travel schedule needs. We highly recommend the Nice Villa!
Thank you so much for your comment, David. It's been a pleasure to host you and we're glad you liked the house and enjoyed your stay. We hope to have again the pleasure to welcome you.
Great stay in Nice
We are a family of five with 3 adult children. The villa is just as described in the profile. Clearly the most attractive part of the property was the outdoor space. When we first stepped outside we were overwhelmed by the wonderful smells of the well maintained garden.
We ate most of our meals at the villa and its outdoor kitchen and dining area are fantastic. Frankly, we just couldn't pull ourselves away from the outside areas to go into town very often.
We highly recommend this property for those seeking an authentic French Rivera experience

Wonderful villa and the best view in Nice
This is the 2nd time our group of 7 has rented Patrick’s villa and it was once again amazing. The house is large and attractive and with 7 adults we were more than comfortable. Easy communication for any issues. We love the pool and outdoor kitchen and hardly left the property at all. Uber makes is super easy to go into town when you want to. And the property manager and the housekeeper are lovely people.
Thank you very much for your comment. It has been a pleasure to host you and we're glad you all enjoyed your stay and had a good time. We hope to have again the pleasure to welcome you.
My Nice Villa
House was overall lovely. Location, garden area, & pool were beautiful. However it was a little disappointing to find that there was no air conditioning in main floor living room, dining room, and kitchen. We had to go out and buy extra fans to help cool down the house. The hot tub had a leak and unable to hold water so not able to use. The pool alarm also consistently went off throughout the day and night even after settings were adjusted as we were told to do and when no one in pool. We also lost electricity for around 8 hours unable to reset as directed in black book and call put into Loretta. We felt the cleaning woman who came in midweek did not do a great job. There were also cobwebs on shelves and some room corners.
Thank you for your review. I'm glad you liked the property.
I'm sorry if you had assumed that there was air conditioning in the rooms you mentioned -- it has never been necessary and the heat wave France is facing this year is quite unusual. So far, just opening the bay windows has been more than enough.
Our pool guy mentioned a leak for the hot tub of a few cm per day!
Unusable? Regarding the pool alarm, why not simply deactivate it instead of stopping it temporarily?
For the electricity issue, it wasn't the house but the whole neighborhood and there is nothing we can do about it!
Anyway, I am sorry about these issues but according to our neighbors, they didn't stop you for having a good time up to late at night!
We spent a wonderful week in this beautiful villa with our family to celebrate our 70th birthdays. The views are spectacular, the accommodation is well appointed and the outdoor area is amazing. Our grandchildren spent most of their time in the pool ( and even though the water is quite chilly at this time of year, we couldn’t get them out )!!
Thank you so much for a lovely week and thank you for the fizz !
Thank you for your comment. It has been a pleasure to host you and we're glad you enjoyed your stay. We hope to have again the pleasure to welcome you.
Home in Nice France
What a great stay and what a great property. There were 7 adults and there was plenty of space to spread out and be comfortable. The pictures are very accurate. You can not beat the views be it first thing in the morning or late at night. The yard is perfect place to hang out and get away from it all. The owners and property management are very accommodating and helpful. This was one amazing vacation.
The villa is located in the hills above Nice with a breathtaking panoramic sea view. It is a 10 minutes drive to the Old town of Nice with excellent restaurants and night-life. There are plenty of beaches along the Promenade des Anglais offering a wide range of water sports and restaurants. You will also find facilities like supermarket, shops, bars, cafes, bakeries and butchers shops within a 5 minutes drive. Local life, markets, museum and shopping areas are everywhere.
Nice is the capital of the famous French Riviera, located on the Mediterranean Sea in the sunny south of France, only 25 km from the Italian border. Within a 30 min. drive you find amongst others famous places like Monaco and Cannes, town like Grasse (perfumes) and Antibes, and small typically French villages like St. Paul de Vence and Eze. You'll enjoy museum dedicated to famous artists like Chagall, Picasso, Matisse, Renoir, etc. The Italian markets of San Remo and Ventimiglia can be reached by car in about 45 min.
