We had a fabulous week at Cactus Roc. The apartment was superb, very well equipped and the view was absolutely stunning. Lovely communal pool, which on many occasions we had all to ourselves. We visited Menton and Nice by bus and took the train to Ventimigila. The hilltop village of Eze had fantastic views from the exotic gardens. Visited Villa Rothchilds and gardens on Cap Ferrat which was absolutely beautiful. Villefranche is a lovely and we enjoyed the beach and sea. The weather was superb all week and we finished the holiday with an excellent seafood meal on the beach at Restaurant Passable, Cap Ferrat ,watching the sunset on Villefranche. Communications with Brian throughout were excellent. Many thanks for a wonderful holiday.
Exactly as it appears to be, beautiful views, comfortable accommodation an amazing area to explore with something for everyone. So good we've booked again for next year and I think that says it all ! We were glad of hiring a small car, street parking mainly and very tight bends made journeys fun and a little hair raising. Can't wait till next year. You can even book beach sun beds now via the Internet, although we were very happy with the pool and public beaches. Thanks to Brian for great communication & to Sanya for keeping the apartment so nice.
Very enjoyable. Well maintained apartment affording comfortable accommodation and brilliant views over Villefrance. Small but well-equipped kitchen ideal for preparation of breakfast and lunch. With 2 grown-up children we welcomed having 2 bathrooms and 3 toilets. Huge balcony with a table , chairs and settees, ideal for relaxing and taking in the views with a glass of wine. Shared pool was good for an evening dip but lacked shade and adequate seating during the day. However the beach is only a short drive away.
We spent a lovely week in this beautiful and well maintained apartment. The view from the spacious balcony was simply stunning. We are looking forward to returning in one of the next years.
The apartment is very well equipped, including items that you normally don't find in a vacation rental. It is well maintained, clean. There is quite a variety of books including guide books and maps and many television programs in English. The balcony is large with a most beautiful view of the bay with constantly changing views of yachts and cruise ships. The weather during our stay could not have been better. Construction noise in September was at times quite loud. However, the nights were very quiet for sleeping. Parking during the first week was outside the complex, the remaining time was available within the gated community. The location made driving to various cities in the Provence very easy. We thoroughly enjoyed our time eating breakfast and dinner on the balcony. Since we had a car, shopping was convenient and we did not have to walk up and down a relatively steep hill to town or bus. I would recommend it to friends and anyone interested in this wonderful part of France. Pat R.
We arrived and were directly wellcomed, this was good organized - we found it corresponding to the description without problems; it is very cosy and personnally furnished, it's like feeling home, the balcony - wide over the whole front with this geat view over the bay is inviting to stay there the whole day to watch the ships, the stars and to relaxe and enjoy the sun!
In the kitchen you find everything you need, the beds are fine, I liked the the shower very much.
Villefranche itself is a nice little town - and you can use the train or bus without problems to reach Nice, Cannes or Grasse; there is the possibility to do nice little promenades, stay on the beach;
The apartment is perfect for a couple with children even they have to share a room, because they need it only at night because of the activities during the day -> not at least the pool!
