A wonderful stay in a wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

"We had a wonderful winter holiday in the villa. Everything was absolutely perfect: a beautiful historical house with all the things you need for a happy stay, a well-kept garden with olive, lemon and orange trees, breathtaking views of Nice and the sea, very beautiful surroundings and a lot of places to see at a reasonable traveling distance. We had a special pleasure to meet Mr. J.-F. de Blanchetti and Madame de Blanchetti who are very nice, friendly and hospitable. The staff, speaking four languages, is exceptionally kind and helpful and did their best to make our holiday absolutely wonderful. We have already recommended the villa to some our friends and are dreaming of coming there again.

Thank you very much for the most enjoyable holiday!!!!

Leonid, Helen (Russia), Ursula (Austria)

"As I saw the photos - I expected much, but when I was there - WOW!!!

Imagine a place where centuries old intelligence and finest customs are still alive, where they dwell on the edge of time and space plus on the edge of the Nice city with the view to the Sea.

Then add an amazing Park where oranges and lemons can pe picked directly from a tree, some meters away find yourself in a old noble villa with the interior, chosen with the most delicate, personal french touch. You have to pich yourself the whole time to believe you are not dreaming. And this feeling does not leave.

That is why we could hardly leave the property. Did not need anything from the city (except a fresh sea-food), it was just so perfect up there.

Do I want to return? It is not a question. I know - I will."

"Pictures about this place didn't lie. Wonderful historical house and a well-kept garden. View to the City of Nice and the sea behind it was breathtaking. House was very clean, quiet and cozy. The owners and staff were helpfull and nice. We could feel a special warmth and kindness to our children. When we asked them what was nice in our holiday villa, they answered: "Everything!". We totally agree and can recommend this place to all."
