Wonderful vacation in a great house

  • 5 of 5

First of all, Virginie and Franck are great people who made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived at the house. They where there to greet us, explained everything and showed us how to take care of the pool. Actually, already before arriving, Virginie answered our questions via mail, which was a great help.

Unfortunately terror struck Nice only two days before our arrival, but the house is at 500 meters above the sea and we felt very secure there.

We especially enjoyed the well equipped kitchen and large balcony with gas grill where you can enjoy the view and kick back. The well maintained house with children rooms, trampoline outside and the great pool were all things that made this vacation especially great. The pool was of course the center of attention for the kids and they were rarely anywhere else except when going out to see things.

The view - ahh yes, the view - I have to mention that again - both during the day and in the evening it was absolutely breathtaking. Sitting there with a glass of Bandol Rosé looking at the lights coming on in Nice was just awesome. We never even switched the TV on.

We also liked that there was a breeze from the ocean almost each day, so while it gets very hot on some days, the house stays reasonable cool and sleeping was not a problem.

The road up the mountain to the house is a bit daunting the first time. In most places two cars cannot pass but everyone is team-working and it just works. On your first drive up the mountain you may, like us, reach a point where you think its got to be wrong, but just keep going - you are most likely on the right track. The road is a bit steep at times but not challenging or dangerous, so no need to worry and after driving the route 2-3 times you don't even think about it anymore.

Shopping is in La Trinité - about 15 minutes drive from the house, down the mountain. The Auchan supermarket is huge and has literally everything.

We can absolutely recommend the house, location and your host couple; Virginie and Franck - To both of you, thank you for making us feel welcome, for explaining everything and for making our vacation great!

Marvellous house in a very beautiful environment

  • 5 of 5

The view on Nice and on the mountains is wonderful! It helps you very much to get a relaxing holiday.

The house has all comfort a family needs during a holiday, the swimming pool is lovely. We especially appreciated the tranquility of the location. The first time you go up the hill with your car might be challenging. After two days driving up the hill becomes however a simple routine. We enjoyed the environment: the house is very close to Monaco, Eze, Cap Ferrat (villa Ephrusy de Rotschild is a must-see), Menton, the Alps, ... and of course Nice is also wonderful: a nice old city, a lot of different shops, a lot of different interesting musea (Villa Massena, Beaux Arts, Palais Lacarsis, etc.). Everything is present to have a holiday which is totally fitted to your preferences. Also the owners (Virginie and Franck) are very charming persons willing to help you if needed.

One of our best holidays ever ...

Contemporary property with breathtaking views!

  • 4 of 5

We had a thoroughly enjoyable stay at Virginie's property. The welcome was very warm and the owners extremely friendly and helpful. It was wonderful to be able to sit on the terrace and enjoy the breathtaking views of Nice and the coast beyond. We really enjoyed the contemporary style of the house and its generously sized pool and decking area. A car is needed to access Nice, restaurants and other amenities. The A8 motorway is reached by a 15 minute drive down the hill. The property is in an idyllic setting and ideal for those who want a peaceful and relaxing environment.

Excellent séjour

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons passé 2 excellentes semaines dans cette villa. Elle est fonctionnelle, bien équipée, au calme et avec une vue magnifique. Elle se situe à peine à 15-20 min du centre de Nice. Pour y accéder, il faut monter une route étroite avec pas mal de virages mais cela ne nous a pas posé problème. C'est le prix à payer pour avoir une telle vue. La piscine n'est pas chauffée mais sa température a été en permanence entre 28 et 30°. Les propriétaires sont cool et très sympas. Parfois, il faut un peu insister pour avoir une réponse à une question ... Ils ne sont pas "hyper" connectés mais peut-on les blâmer ... Nous recommandons donc sans retenue cette location. Il y a de supers balades à proximité, le mont Macaron à 5km et le mont Chauve d’Aspremont à 10 km via des chemins, attention au dénivelé, un vrai paradis pour les trailleurs comme moi.

Beauté et intelligence

  • 5 of 5

Nous partons en gite depuis 15 ans environ, régulièrement.

Ce gite et ses propriétaires sont tout à fait particuliers.

L'accueil est convivial, sans chichi; on sent que ces gens aiment ce lieu, qu'ils le valorisent et qu'ils apprécient le contact (contrairement à d'autres pour qui c'est manifestement un pensum).

La maison est belle et le point de vue magnifique sur la Riviera. La décoration est très soignée, avec une réelle recherche esthétique (svt ailleurs la déco est de style "ikéa-impersonnelle" ou bien un capharnaüm de bric-à-brac que l'on en voudrait pas chez soi...) De vrais tableaux ornent certains murs. La présence d'un piano droit est une riche idée pour les musiciens.

La luminosité est incomparable avec de grandes baies vitrées. L'accès direct à la piscine des chambre est génial.

Le gite était vraiment propre à notre arrivée, alors que bien trop svt la propreté est franchement moyenne à passable ds tous les lieux où ns avons séjourné. Le matériel électroménager ainsi que TV et chaîne est de qualité (ce qui n'est ds les autres gîtes quasiment jamais le cas). La literie était impeccable. Le grand frigo / congel est très agréable si l'on veut stocker bcp de choses et ne pas redescendre la montagne régulièrement pour faire le plein.

Au total ns avons passé un séjour excellent. Ns recommandons cette adresse.

Excellente impression générale

  • 5 of 5

Prestation totalement conforme à nos attentes et au descriptif de l'annonce. Logement très confortable aménagé avec soin et bon goût sur un site exceptionnel, procurant un bien-être nous ayant souvent dissuadé de nous en écarter. Le séjour de deux semaines a tellement ravi grands et petites que sa prolongation de sept jours a rapidement été envisagée, seulement interdite par l'arrivée de successeurs...

Impression en tous points favorable, confortée par la gentillesse, la disponibilité et le sérieux de Virginie et Franck, les heureux et sympathiques propriétaires.

Adresse à fréquenter sans retenue ni appréhension, que je recommande vivement.
