Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Mrs. Locke



we greatly enjoyed our stay at your villa. It was appropriately described on the web in every aspect, so there were absolutely no issues of disappointment, with an overcomplete kitchen, a fantastic Weber grill, ice maker etc.. We initially thought that our children (4 and 6) might find their small room a bit cramped, but quite on the contrary they loved it. The one exception which we found not appropriately highlighted beforehand was the absolute magnificent view of the sea from nearly every spot on the premises, but that would be difficult to capture anyway.





Regarding the staff we were completely satisfied with Mr. Terrier, who was very responsive and reacted quickly to our needs. Regarding the cleaning we took your advice and employed Stephanie and were completely satisfied, too.





Here are some small suggestions you may consider adding to the information provided to future clients prior to arrival.

shopping: we found the small centre commercial at the foot of the hill close to the first sandy beach quite convenient for daily shopping for bread, newspaper and fresh fish etc.. While certainly more expensive than the big supermarkets, it was a lovely morning walk one of us undertook nearly every morning.

addresses/navigation: as most people use navigation systems in cars or smartphones today, it may be helpful to provide the addresses of the LeClerc in St. Raphael, which is really a bit difficult to find, and other interesting places like the old harbor of St. Raphael (for boat trips to St. Tropez etc.), parking in Cannes and other places which may take some to find for the uninitiated.





When we planned our trip using googlemaps, we also found out that the villa is also captured already in google streetview. While it does not reflect the newly build parking area, it nevertheless shows the villa as seen from the street very well including the approach.





Long story short, we absolutely loved it and are seriously considering coming back next year.

Beautiful villa made a great family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with our four children for a week late May. The villa is wonderful with plenty of space, well equipped, a heated pool that we couldn't get our children out of, and wonderful views of the sea. The area is very quiet which suited us. The weather was nice and warm, not too hot.

We had no difficulties during our stay and thank you Virginie for meeting us at 2am after our flight was delayed!

We would recommend this villa to families looking for a getaway in a nice spot with a heated pool.

A great holiday villa

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful villa is in a wonderful position within walking distance of beaches, the town centre and Agay Railway Station. The villa itself is exceptionally well equipped and beautifully furnished and decorated and is very comfortable. There are many outdoor seating areas where you can relax in the sun or shade and enjoy and view. It has a wonderful swimming pool. The owner is charming and very helpful.

Beatiful villa in stunning location

  • 5 of 5

This truly is a wonderful villa; superbly located and with an excellent range of facilities. The villa was clean and in a very good condition. The beds were very comfortable. The kitchen had ample facilities; every need catered for- the Bosch Tassimo machine made it very easy to make a quick coffee (or hot chocolate for one of my daughters).

The view from the terraces out to sea is just wonderful.

There was ample space for the 4 of us; and we could all relax in different areas should we choose without feeling on top of one another.

The pool was lovely; with a variety of pool-side furniture (I particularly enjoyed chilling out in the hammock).

The barbecue are was excellent (with an outside fridge to store items in); and the (gas) barbecue itself was clean.

We were welcomed by Virginie; who was delightful and explained how everything worked (it was also helpful to have some notes next to the electric equipment should we have forgotten). Shirley called us early during our stay to make sure everything was to our liking - it certainly was.

The villa is a short walk to the nearest beach; although I would be tempted to walk a bit further down the hill - either to the next beach or even in to Agay itself and the main beach.

Also down the hill (a 5 minute walk) is a small row of shops, including a Spa and a boulangerie, although I would be tempted to drive out a bit to the Leclerc for the main shop - about 10/15 minutes away).

As far as the area is concerned, Agay was a great place to base ourselves to explore around this part of the Cote d'Azure. If you don't want to drive, it easy enough to use the train service that runs along the coast. Although if you want to go to St Tropez, be warned - the (only) road gets very busy; it may be best to stop at Sainte-Maxime (which, itself, is a very nice resort) and take the sea bus across the bayl!

Agay itself is a nice seaside resort, with plenty to do and places to eat. Our favourite was the Maobi Plage at the far end of the bay.

If you have kids, I would recommend going to the Aquasplash park in Antibes (45 - 60 minutes away - depending on traffic). It may not be cheap, but it is a fun day out.

Two points to note - there are quite a few steps up to the villa; so may not be suitable for those with a lack of mobility; and the coast road runs past the villa, so there is some road noise.

I would certainly recommend this villa to anyone; and would consider staying here again.

It's indeed the best place for summer escape

  • 5 of 5

We have been staying at La Bonne Etoile from 04 to 18 July this year, and this magic place is most likely the best of what I have seen for our family vacation, that's why we come back here, over and over again, the last six years. The house is not large, but cosy and has everything we need: 2 spacious bed rooms + one little for kids, 3 toilettes, large living room, kitchen is also spacious and well equipped and with a lot of utensils.

Park and garden surround the house and fill the air with scent of pines, eucalyptus and flowers. And of course, the main thing that saved us from the July heat (together with air conditioning in the house) was a swimming pool. This doesn't mean that we didn't go for swimming in the sea, there are bays and beaches around with pebble or stones, or sand at your choice, all at 5-10 min lazy walk distance.

There is a private parking at the villa, so it's very convenient (and useful) to have a car here, but if you have not it's not a fatal problem as there is a commercial center not far away, around 10 min walking, where you can find a Spar-store, bakery and other little shops and couple of nice restaurants. However a car is recommended.

I also would like to mention managers of the villa, the very friendly and well-disposed couple.

A high quality villa in a lovely location

  • 5 of 5

The villa is very well equipped and has a beautiful view over the sea. The villa has all the facilities one needs for a holiday and the furnishings of a family home gives a good ambiance. The swimming pool and the garden are well maintained and attractive. The location of the villa is a short walk to the shops and restaurants. The sandy beaches nearby are ideal for swimming and water sports. The owner was very helpful and we very much enjoyed our stay. We would definitely recommend the villa to friends.
