Overall a beautiful and fantastic villa for families and celebrations

  • 5 of 5

Bettina was wonderful, helpful and considerate. The pool area is beautifully kept and a great place to relax. The patio areas have great views over St Paul de Vence. A really wonderful place to come and stay. I'd highly recommend.

Mixed feelings

  • 3 of 5

The Villa Carola is large, has many bedrooms and modern baths.

The view is very nice. The kitchen is well-appointed.

The down side to staying there is more of a feeling that the owner is more important than the client. Many corners have been trimmed in furnishing the house.

The entire main floor has two tables and one couch. All seating is supposed to be outside. Soap is reused between clients, etc. There are ants - you get the picture.

Ok. Nuff said.

The house is at its best I guess for several families who plan to stay outside and who chip in to heat the pool.

There were seven adults in our group. We enjoyed cooking and sitting outside. But the Villa Carola was not what we expected.

Owner's Response: "Thank you very much for your feedback. We take your comments very seriously, not least because we have never had a 3* review before. I may have to explain that we had a major flood situation on the ground floor 2 months before your arrival. All wooden furniture was ruined and had to be taken out. The villa was closed till the end of April to deal with insurance, renovation, repairs and repainting. We just made it "on time" for our beginning of May clients. We agree that the house is set up to be enjoyed outside. For example, we have many outdoor dining tables and only one indoor dining table (which seats 8-10) plus the kitchen table. The weather this May was very mixed, and it may be that you spent more time inside than our usual clients. We would always recommend heating the pool in May. We have purchased new soap dispensers for all bathrooms. We don't put out second hand soaps for our clients, but there were some in the laundry room which are used by the cleaners. Ants do come inside in May if it is cold or damp and tend not to be any trouble in the main summer months. They are harmless but we do try to keep them out. We have done a full clean for ants today. We have invested hugely in the house in recent years (air conditioning, five new bathrooms, three new bedrooms, new furniture in every room). The kitchen is next on the list, so it slightly ironic that you liked it! The comments upon the main floor probably reflect different design tastes. We deliberately try to create a sense of space. We don't think the comment about "one couch" is very fair: it is 3 sided and seats 11! However, we have today purchased 5 new comfortable chairs for the downstairs multi purpose room and two new rugs."

Paradise in the South of France

  • 5 of 5

We had allowed ourselves to have high expectations when booking this villa several months ago, based on photos, description of the property and previous customer feedback. Upon initially entering the villa, a mixture of relief, exhilaration and awe overcame us, lasting through the entire stay.

The combination of amenities, seclusion, location and unparalleled views makes this villa a rare offering and made our trip a very special one indeed. The common rooms are spacious and well appointed, the three top floor bedrooms have private baths as well as private outdoor space. The heated pool was superb, the many outdoor terraces and patios offered variety and privacy, the grounds lush with plantings and trees.

The location and views cannot be overstated, with the village of Saint Paul and the Foundation Maeght art museum within walking distance together with sweeping views of Saint Paul, the valley below and the sea beyond. With Bettina's able assistance, the coordination for us was smooth and friendly.

We look forward to a return trip!

Luksusferie ved St. Paul de Vence

  • 5 of 5

Vi er et ægtepar, som har inviteret vores familie - ialt 11 personertil en uges ferie i Villa CAROLA tæt på St. Paul de Vence - 6 voksne og 5 børn i alderen fra 10 til 16 år. Det er et fantastisk skønt hus med masser af plads, en dejlig pool og petangbane samt bordtennis, så der var aktiviteter for hele familien. Desuden er der fri internetadgang, aircondition overalt, lige som huset var smagfuldtudstyret, lækre badeværelser og toiletter. Huset har et veludstyret køkken med alt, vi havde brug for. Terrasserne og poolområdet er veludstyret med borde, stole og liggestole. Der er en fantastisk udsigt til St. Paul de Vence og Middelhavet såvel fra stuer som fra terrasserne.

Vi var alle glade og tilfredse med opholdet, lige som der var en meget fin service ved bestilling samt under hele opholdet.

Vi kan på det varmeste anbefale stedet.
