A very special and beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

We arrived from Nice airport Mrs Massa had a beautiful meal waiting for us and a glass of wine to toast the start of our holiday.

This beautiful villa was exactly as described on the website, spotless and very well maintained. After showing us around the villa and running through all the facilities Mr and Mrs Massa left us to start our holiday and what a place to holiday, the gardens were full of beautiful flowers the terrace and barbeque area were a delightful place to sit and chat and eat morning or evening.

Bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms again spotless and clean with air conditioning the whole villa was just a joy to stay in. St Paul de Vence was a healthy walk away or 6 minutes by car with spectacular views and nice restaurants, Vence about 10 minutes away by car a nice place to get your provisions at the supermarket or the shops in the old village part of the town.

If you like shopping the recently opened Polygone shopping centre in Cagnes Sur Mer is certainly worth a visit about 30 minutes away from the Villa.

The area the Villa is located is peaceful and very quite we cannot recommend this property enough .Thank you Jean Claude and Therese for making our holiday a very special one. Thanks again best wishes David and Susan

What a fantastic house

  • 5 of 5

We were a family party of five adults who were fortunate enough to have booked to stay at this wonderful house, on arrival Therese and Jean-Claude were there to greet us with a lovely bottle of the local rose wine (how civilized!) They had prepared a meal for us which was in the fridge ready to be put through the oven, they had also made us a lovely fresh fruit salad and supplied us with a selection of finest french cheese, there was a bottle of home made limoncello in the freezer and because it was our anniversary they were even kind enough to give us a bottle of champagne.

The house is absolutely lovely and so well equipped, there was nothing we needed that wasn't there, the gardens surrounding the house are beautiful and we spent time just wandering around and admiring the plants and flowers.

The pool and outside space is just as impressive as the inside of the house, we spent every evening dining outside and if it does get a bit chilly (which is didn't) there are heaters so you can still enjoy being outside.

We walked into Saint Paul (about half an hour) and to the Fondation Maeght (about 20 mins) Vence is a short drive away as is Cagnes-Sur-Mer which has a train station so getting to Nice and Monaco is really easy if you don't want to drive.

The only downside is that we had to leave, we could have all stayed indefinitely. This is not just a holiday rental it feels like a home and Therese and Jean-Claude worked so hard to make us feel welcome. we would all return in a heartbeat. Thank you

Amazing villa with everything you need

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Thérèse and Jean Claude’s villa, it is beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean and with lovely grounds - the pictures do not do it justice! We could not fault it. We were meet by the owners with a truly warm welcome and a glass of rosé :) Thérèse had also provided juice, biscuits AND ice cream to welcome our 2 little girls which pleased them greatly! There was also a delicious meal cooked for us for dinner and a fridge stocked with food & drink- really amazing! We have stayed in a lot of villas and not experienced anything as good as this. The house has 4 double bedrooms (one bedroom is a separate annex in the garden) all with ensuite bathrooms plus an additional toilet, there was plenty of room for the 4 adults and 2 children in our party and it could easily accommodate more. The outside of the villa is beautiful and the heated pool lovely, with a safety gate which gave great piece of mind with our 2 year old. One of our favourite areas was the BBQ area overlooking the pool that even has curtains and heaters if it gets a bit chilly in the evening. The villa also has a beautiful garden with Therese’s vegetable & herb garden- no need to buy any salad! There is also boules and a table tennis table and a couple of swings for the children. The house really has everything you need, pool towels and even towel ponchos for the kids, some children’s toys, and toiletries in the bathrooms. Wifi is also very good.We have been spoilt now and the next villa we stay in is bound to be a disappointment! Thank you to Thérèse and Jean Claude for making our stay at your home so comfortable and for the wonderful warm welcome you gave us, Katherine.

Perfect holiday villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful family holiday at this villa. The owners were the perfect hosts, on hand to assist whenever needed. When we arrived they had cooked us a wonderful lunch which we were very grateful for.

The villa was above our expectations as the photos did not do justice to how beautiful this house and its grounds are. It was extremely clean and well maintained. In addition, everything we could ever need and require during our stay was in the villa. From the most well equipped kitchen we have ever seen to a host of activities such as table tennis and boules. The pool was beautiful and whatever time of day you went in, it was the perfect temperature.

I cannot recommend this villa enough.

Thank you for a wonderful holiday xxx

Villa da sogno

  • 5 of 5

Alla villa Carpe Diem abbiamo trascorso momenti incantevoli, tutto era semplicemente perfetto sia all'interno della casa che nel giardino. La piscina riscaldata e accessibile direttamente dalle camere è stato un bellissimo modo per fare il bagno senza disturbare i compagni di vacanza. I padroni di casa inoltre sono insuperabili con le loro attenzioni e la loro calorosa accoglienza. Consigliamo questa villa senza riserve se non quella della nostalgia a lasciarla alla fine del soggiorno. Monica e famiglia

Owner's Response: Ce fut une vraie joie de rencontrer ces deux familles, de partager des moments de convivialité avec les parents et leurs ados spontanés, responsables et fort agréables. Un grand merci pour leur délicate attention à leur départ. Un seul voeu: les revoir plus longtemps en 2016!

Absolutely wonderful villa!

  • 5 of 5

This villa was perfect! There were six adults in our group, and we all loved it. The rooms are spacious, beautifully decorated, and everything we needed for our week's stay was provided. The pool and garden area was an absolute joy. We have never stayed in any rental home that was so meticulous, and the location is great for visiting the hilltop towns and coastal areas of Côte d'Azur. But the very best part of our stay was the warm, caring, and friendly attitude of the owners. We immediately felt at home and cannot express our gratitude for everything they did to make us feel welcome. We hated to leave!!!

Owner's Response: Merveilleuse amitié née de nos échanges par mails au long des mois avant d'accueillir à la maison ces trois couples venus d'Indiana. Nous attendions avec impatience cette rencontre particulière. Quel plaisir de partager des moments inoubliables, d'échanger nos idées, de découvrir des personnes aux valeurs similaires aux nôtres malgré les différences de culture. Nous avons apprécié leur délicatesse, le soin quotidien apporté à notre villa, leur hospitalité spontanée à l'image d' amis de longue date... Patricia est repartie...mais elle reste dans un coin de mon cœur. Rare est une telle rencontre...Le temps n'aura pas de prise sur nous dans cette nouvelle et profonde amitié.
