Perfect family holiday in paradise

  • 5 of 5

The perfect family holiday in outstanding and exclusive location in the French Riviera.

We had a blast!

As said in previous comments, the domain is totally private and safe for children while being close to Bormes les Mimosas and Le Lavandou with amazing sight seeing spots, fantastic beaches, plenty of shops and top notch restaurants. Location is ideal w/ superb panoramic view, nice swimming pool and large garden. It is only 2 min walking distance from the private beach. Tennis courts nearby.

House is super functional with newly refurbished kitchen and nearly 1 bathroom or shower per room! Some parts are newly renovated which is a plus, while keeping the charm intact. All rooms have cool view on the sea or neighboring garden.

We really recommend this location. We will be back for sure !

Wonderful location

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at La Griotte 3 weeks and really enjoyed it. The domain is totally private though close to Bormes les Mimosas where one can choose between some very good restaurants. It's an ideal place for children as the beach (private) is 2 minutes away and the pool is perfect. The domain is safe and secure (special thanks to Anne and Jean-Claude for their kindness and availability). Also some of the most beautiful beaches on Cote d'Azur (Estagnol, Cabasson) are 15 min by car.

The only negative point was that the house needs some refreshments. Although we barely cared about as the rest was perfect.

We really recommend this location

Holiday Bliss

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the villa for two weeks in August 2009 with my wife and 3 kids.

The house is located in a private domain with 24/7 protected access : we loved it that the kids were totally safe to go play around, build tree huts... Besides, the neighbouring villas are also houses with children, so they could make some friends and all hang out together.

The private beach of the domain is only 2 steps away from the house and the walk to reach it is just lovely.

We also enjoyed the facilities within walking distance of the house: half a dozen tennis courts, a beach bar which is also a sailing school/ windsurfing club, a little supermarket during summer.

The house is bright, colourful and comfortable. It is surrounded by pine trees : the kids would love picking up pine nuts ! For the record, four rooms out of five offer a magnificent view on the sea, the Levant Island and Port-Cros, but the panoramic view from the master bedroom is particularly breathtaking.

Some nice spots I would recommend in the area: the charming village of Bormes-les-Mimosas on the hill, the Lavandou, its exotic mini-golf, its numerous bars, restaurants and traditional perfumed weekly market, the golf of Valcros…

Spending our holidays in this family home was a real bliss and we do intend to come back soon!

Full satisfaction, great hollidays

  • 5 of 5

It is a lovely place to stay: the view is outstanding, the garden is charming, within a quiet and perfumed surrounding.

The place is safe for the kids, thanks to the private & guarded domain;

The children were very happy, the pool is superb, and they found a lot to do, sports & friends, without having to use the car;

The house is wide, full of light, very comfortable and handy; It was perfectly clean and organised upon arrival;

I cant forget the view from the bed !

All the family had some great time, and I intend to come back again;

Cheers !

The warm and sunny south.

  • 5 of 5

The Griotte is a place I have visited a number of times and spent very pleasant days there while on holiday. The view, the surrounding the peace and the cozy spacious house tucked away between the trees is an ideal place to stretch out and enjoy your free time, either with your family or just with a friend. You feel very at ease in this wooded compound and yet, you are only 5 min away from the shopping area, where you can get anything your heart desires. The old family house is very spacious and well fitted, in every respect. The view from the master's bedroom, onto the end of the cape and islands, is just superb and if you don't want a dip in the pool at the end of the garden, you just have to walk down through beautiful small lanes to meet the azur blue sea, only 3 min away. A great place to collect yourself and re-charge your health.

I am already looking forward to my next visit....in the near future.

I can only recommend this property to those who appreciate such a surrounding, warm weather, good food and peace, which envelopes you during your siesta.

Lovely late summer

  • 4 of 5

My children, wife and I were delighted by this lovely house. The view, location and climate were wonderful. The house has the feeling of a lovely family home with many antiques and is very carefully decorated. We recommend it to all friends who wish to spend some peaceful time in the South of France in a really enchanting family retreat.

It is nice to find a house with character rather than the usual all white super design, but charmless, modern villa.
