Gorgeous house and gardens, wonderful hosts!
First and foremost Therese and her husband Jean-Claude are kind, thoughtful and very caring hosts. Therese provided us with an amazing home-cooked welcome meal and plenty of wine too! Their kitchen is typically French and fully equipped, including a fantastic spice cupboard and you can prepare fresh salads with lettuce from her garden!
The house is generously equipped with spare linen and towels and the washing machine comes in handy.
Villa Carpe Diem is just as described; my son said it felt like home and indeed it did. Therese showed us how to walk into St Paul de Vence through the woods which takes a good 20 minutes and it's advisable to wear solid shoes or trainers for this! She also happily recommended their favourite restaurant where we ate a couple of times; She even booked the table for us!
Hire a car and you can shop at the Leclerc supermarket in nearby Vence . We used the BBQ many times in the charming outdoor kitchen and this spot is also perfect for breakfast, lunch and relaxing in the shade.
Best to go prepared for mosquito bites - we learned a little too late that you need to spray yourself during the day as well as at night!
We have recently returned from a fantastic stay at Villa Carpe Diem, courtesy of our charming and generous hosts, Therese and Jean-Claude. We arrived to wine, nibbles, a selection of lovely food and charming company - and left in a similar manner. The villa was beautiful - clean, spacious, well-equipped with a pool and surroundings to marvel at. We discovered local towns like Saint-Paul and Vence, both a short drive away (you can walk to Saint-Paul, but about 20 mins). We also enjoyed a day in Antibes (40 mins drive) and easily discovered supermarkets and a big shopping mall. All in all, a delightful week away in a most picturesque part of France: we would love to return.
Magic, magic holiday
Have just returned from a 10 day stay in this fantastic villa. Therese Massa and Jean Claude are wonderful to deal with and fantastic hosts which was evidenced by them having a beautiful meal ready when we arrived and even stayed and enjoyed a glass of wine and chat. The villa is beautifully maintained with the best of everything available. The weather was wonderful in St Paul for our stay and even though the temperatures reached 40 degrees we had no worries as we were able to sit in the wonderful shaded terrace, take a dip in the wonderful spotlessly 'clean pool and enjoy a barbeque on the state of the art 'barbie. Hot nights were not a problem as the air con in each bedroom worked very well. The whole property is well maintained and the garden is beautiful thanks to Claude. What a wonderful coupleTherese and Jean Claude are, they were both so welcoming, warm and thoughtful. Nothing was a problem for them and they certainly added to the enjoyment of our holiday. St Paul de Vence is stunning and the villa is in a particulary great area with plenty to do. Nice airport is 30 minutes away and we visited Nice, Antibes, Menton easily by car. We take home fond memories of our visit and long to be back again in Carpe Diem. Thank you Therese and Jean Claude for everything. Rosa and Family
We had a wonderful stay here! The house is beautiful and very well equipped, the gardens are beautiful - perfect for children to run around and play. The only disappointment was that the pool was not available due to the rather cool Spring.
Therese and Jean Claude are wonderful and very attentive hosts.
Would highly recommend - we will never forget our time there for all the right reasons! Great location, beautiful home and fantastic company.
This family and the friends were nice really. The children very cute and interested about anything.
The present left by Sophia and Andreas has touched me so much! I keep it like a precious gift.
I hope to see again them and the next time to enjoy the swiming pool!
A Dream HOLIDAY
If i could give more stars i would.i will start by the owners. They are both absolutely adorable. They have done everything to make our holidays perfect.we had a fridge full of wine, beverage, cheese, fruits. Therese also cooked a beautiful meal for us and many salads. A good welcome for our first day.we then toasted together with a bottle of wine to the beginning of our stay.
The house is first class and very clean with spectacular gardens all around.
The heated swimming pool is amazing to a perfect temperature to swimm day and night. Everything is very well maintained .all you need is there . Air conditioning is very good all around the house.
The location of the property is fantastic. 20 mn walk to st paul de vence village with amazing art galleries.
Supermarket is only 10mn by car and is big enough for provisions.
I could go on and on, i highly recommend this property and i am looking forward to return
Merci pour tous ces compliments que je sais sincères de votre part. Vos vacances à Carpe Diem a été pour toute la famille une expérience magnifique et pour nous, c'est le plus beau cadeau que vous puissiez nous faire.
Vous connaître c'est avoir envie de prolonger ces moments de partage comme avec des amis de longue date. Quelle belle rencontre!
Je vous embrasse chaleureusement avec l'espoir de vous accueillir une nouvelle fois.
Lovely home and hosts!
Our family of seven adults enjoyed a wonderful week in this delightful villa! The bedroom and bathroom layouts are a perfect arrangement for anyone. We arrived to a sparkling clean house and the pool was just the right size to swim in. The house is only a 20 minute walk to the beautiful town of Saint Paul de Vence. Excellent grocery stores are a short drive away and the geographical area around this location is simply beautiful. Our hosts, Therese and Jean-Claude were gracious, responsive and very friendly. They are people that I would truly love to take to dinner!
Quel plaisir d'avoir accueilli cette grande famille!
Avant leur arrivée, j'avais déjà ressenti à travers nos nombreux échanges par mail, une véritable joie de la part de Merrie de réunir à la maison pour une semaine, ses enfants venus de cinq états différents des Etats-Unis.
J'ai également apprécié leur contact chaleureux, leur simplicité, leur spontanéité et le respect total de notre maison comme s'il s'agissait de la leur.
Les revoir tous et les connaître davantage serait un bonheur...Maybe the next year?
Nous gardons de leur passage un souvenir excellent, c'est sûr!
