About Celia and John Newgas

We are a family with three children ( now grown up ). We bought this apartment, as we wanted somewhere where could all stay together for holidays and later use when the weather is cold in the UK.

We are a professional couple - an accountant and a CEO running Trade Associations.. We like Food, relaxing and classical Music. Celia loves the beach side walks and to see the Fish being sold straight from boats in the morning.

Celia and John Newgas purchased this apartment in 2004

Why Celia and John Newgas chose Vallauris

I used to come to the South of France as a child. The weather is lovely with bright sunlight. We wanted somewhere very close to the sea, but not actually on the sea-front. Golfe-Juan is small town, with mainly French residents. It is close to Cannes, Juan-les-Pins and Antibes so that there is loads to do. When we chose the location it was essential that access was good and a car was not needed.

We chose la Desirade because it was in a quiet location and had large gardens and a private swimming pool. The people here are friendly.

What makes this apartment unique

We can see the sea from our living room and terrace, and see mountains on the other side of the apartment. We liked la Desirade because it had generous space and grounds. As most of the residents are French and out at work , the grounds and pool are not crowded. Everyone is friendly and we greet each other with a 'Bonjour'.

Parking is easy as we have our own space and you will get a remote control for the gates.

The areas is quiet and safe. Children can go down to the beach and teenagers explore on their own without worry. The gardens have a small olive grove for shade and bench seats set in the grass. There is even a boules pitch to play french style bowls.

We bought the apartment with the intention to spend winters here, so we chose one which had plenty pf space for us, and one bathroom for each bedroom so that our children and friends can feel comfortable.

The apartment is furnished for comfort during a hot summer ... we have the usual things like internet and WifFi and UK Radio and TV, but also plentiful supplies of wine glasses and plates with a real kitchen so that feeding families is easy. One of the attractions of France is that that there are many places offering prepared food that just needs cooking or even warming for a super meal.

Our favourite time is at 6 in the evening when we all sit on the terrace with nibbles and an aperitif. Try a Pineau de Charentes - our favourite and enjoy the sunset.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have had a very nice week at your flat in Golf Juan. The flat was beautiful and great for us, and it have all facilities you could ask for. Your new internet broadband was good and easy to us! The weather was great during our stay so we use the terrace a lot!

Golf Juan is a nice place, with a lot good restaurants and a great beach. It was also very easy to take the train and bus to visit both Antibes, Cannes and St.Rafael. LS Norway July 07


Hi John and Celia!

We just wanted to say that we had a lovely stay at your apartment!

Everything was wonderful and worked out really well and hopefully we will

return next summer! And Golfe-Juan is the perfect town!

Thank you both for being so helpful and cooperative, too! H.R. (USA Sept 2006)


We had a wonderful holiday in

Golfe Juan. Your apartment is really great and I would recommend it to

anyone. It suited our purpose perfectly; it's the best we've ever

stayed in. MB August

Excellent home from home.

  • 5 of 5

We can't find anything to fault this apartment on.

The apartment is bright and clean. It is well equipped. Excellent location. Very handy for the local bus services.

The lounge and balcony gets the sun all day.

I was here with my wife, my mother-in-law, and my wife's aunt.

The senior pair had never done a self-catering holiday before. This apartment has now given them the idea for the future.

Markus, the property manager, is on hand should any issues, regardless, arise.

It is an easy walk (15 - 20 minutes) to the port, beaches and railway station from the apartment.

As previously stated, take a li-lo or something similar to with you should you wish to laze about the pool.

Certainly recommended.

Thank you to John and Celia.

Brilliant apartment!

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful, spacious apartment that is very well equipped and in a quiet location but within easy walking distance of the sandy beach; it is situated on the top floor and can be accessed by a lift. The premises are entered via security gates and door entry code. There was ample room for our group of six with a huge lounge and plenty of space for everyone on the very large, sunny balcony.The kitchen has excellent appliances and all the equipment you would need if you plan to cook. The property has air con, was very clean and the apartment block well maintained. The owner was most helpful with advice and information about the local area and there were plenty of instructions for use of the internet /TV/DVD etc. The pool area was really nice and very clean but you might want to take loungers/inflatables to lie on as there is nothing provided. The small town is about 15-20 minutes walk away and has all the usual shops. There are plenty of restaurants to suit all tastes along the harbour side and various water sports and boat trips and the train that runs along the coast is superb for exploring the area. We would certainly recommend this property if you are looking for somewhere tranquil but within walking distance of the livelier parts of the town.

Rummelig, behagelig lejlighed med dejlig terrasse og god beliggenhed ca 10 minutters gang fra strand

  • 5 of 5

Lejligheden er både veludstyret og rummelig (kan nemt rumme 6 voksne uden problemer). Alt fungerer og er ligetil. Der er styr på tingene (også fra udlejers side) Ejendommen er meget velholdt og beliggende i roligt område. Der er kort afstand til det meste. Indenfor ca 10 min gang er der adgang til indkøb, strand, restaurant, apotek mm. Bussen til Cannes tager 15 min. og der er en køretur på 30 min til Nice og 45 min. til Monaco. Et dejligt sted der kan anbefales.
