Lovely apartment in the countryside

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week in the upper of these two apartments - the photos on the website do not do it justice as it was much more spacious than we originally thought. The apartment is very well kept and was very clean and tidy. OUr only minor grumble (being English) was no kettle in the kitchen - there was a coffee machine but as we're not big coffee drinkers we had to boil water in a pan to make cups of tea etc. Not a major issue though. Although we did not get to meet the owner Stefano during our stay, we were shown to the Apartment by the lady in the office in Roquebilliere who was very helpful. Stefano has created two lovely apartments with a great garden, small swimming pool (perfect to cool off in on our last day as it was so hot!) and view across to Belvedere. There is lots of helpful information in the apartment which is about 5 minutes up a winding road into the countryside from the town where we found all the residents to be very friendly. Plenty of good places to eat and drink in Roquebilliere along with a supermarket for everyday needs. You can walk from the apartment to the "Rock of the Bees" and further along the hillside or down to Roq. if you wish. Further afield St Martin Vesuvie has lovely shops and good restaurants and a larger supermarket. A great base for wildlife and walking in the Alps or just enjoying the scenery - the Alpha Wolf park is worth a visit, and the Gordolasque valley and La Madone de la Fenestre valley were beautiful. Another place worth a visit is La Madone d'Utelle - the 360 degree panorama from the church and monument at the top is breathtaking. Also worth the longer drive is Isola 2000 and just over the border into Italy, if you are lucky you will also see Marmots and Chamois along the way. All in all a superb place to stay as a base for exploring the Alps and countryside between the mountains and the coast. Would certainly recommend and great value for money.

formidable !!

  • 5 of 5

Pour nous la découverte de cette vallée de la Vésubie fût un enchantement , la maison et la campagne de Stefano sont une vraie merveille , nous nous sommes sentis chez nous comme si nous venions visiter un ami . Nous avons été très bien accueillis par la personne qui s'occupe des lieux nous donnant de multiples renseignements sur les alentours .

nous reviendrons dans cette belle vallée qui nous a rempli de bien être .

nous vous recommandons le boucher MIcka face au Vival qui prépare du fait maison délicieux !

A bientôt dans ces lieux chargés de belles énergies .

rectification sur l'appréciation de Pascaline A

  • 5 of 5

juillet 2016

Nous venons de passer un mois dans le gîte du rez de chaussée, nous avons énormément voyager tous les jours et je ne vois pas ou vous avez vu 300 m de dénivelé !

Le 1er lacet 20 m puis un plat ,un autre lacet de 50 m assez raide il est vrai . Mais c'est loin d'être une difficulté insurmontable ! Mais ces montées et ces lacets sont nombreux dans tous les cols de la région. Et pourtant nous avons une nissan qashkai + 2 !!

Mais à côté de ça un séjour inoubliable et une vue fabuleuse une fois arrivé au gîte et un propriétaire plus que sympathique et d'une disponibilité incroyable

superbe site et point de vue !

  • 4 of 5

Superbe point de vue et jolie location mais qu'il faut mériter tant l'accès y est difficile, notamment les 300 derniers mètres. Propriétaire gentil et cool.

Owner's Response: Je vous remercie pour votre commentaire. Je me permets juste d'indiquer aux futurs lecteurs de ce commentaire, que dans ces derniers 300m, dans la partie "difficile" , seuls 75m mesurés avec exactitude ont en effet une côte entre 15 et 20% sans aucun précipice. Photos à l'appui pour ce qui le désirent.

Great Location, beautiful house!

  • 5 of 5

We spend 1 week in the small flat and 2 further weeks in big flat . The small flat has a spectacular terrasse or veranda with view to the mountains around the house. In the small flat is a bedroom with TV, a bathroom with shower and 2 wardrobes for clothes. It also has a little kitchen with all kitchen utensils, also a table and two chairs and a couch/sofa. It is raelly cosy in that little flat. There were lovely details like painted picures on the walls or some nice decorative things. In the big flat we had 2 terasses, one on the noth side and one on the south side. The one on the north side could be shared with the small flat because of the Profi-Grill-Station. Yes, we grilled there sometimes and it was really superb! The views from both terrasses are also very spactacular; montains and nature. For those who like to paint...the right place! There is a big kitchen with everything what cooks love! We love cooking and so we loved this flat very much. There are two (!) living rooms (salons) and as a pair everyone could have his own living room... or having the one for silence and book reading and the other one for watching TV and sitting around the chimney/fireplace. Upstairs there is the sleeping room with a big wardrobe and a spaciously bath room with shower. Everything in this flat is with nice a pretty details....good quality of beds and curtains (also in the small flat), african feeling with decoration, real good place for feeling good. Everything is in a very good order and very clean. In the garden you could find a swimming pool and a table tennis. Also you could walk around the house directly into the mountains or walk down to Roquebilliere for its market every thursday morning. You could drive to the Alpha-Wolf-Parc 10 Km away and its really great there. You could visit the sea and the beaches and of course Nice!

And the Owner, Mr. de Riz, is a real Gentleman. He was so hospitable and friendly - we felt like at home. So we booked again for next year. Best Regards, M. + H. Freitag
