We were an extended family of 7 adults and 2 children and the villa met our needs perfectly. It was spacious, modern and well maintained and the kitchen in particular was very well equipped. The children also made really good use of the free wifi!
This was the first time we have done this kind of holiday, and we would certainly do it again. Everything went smoothly from initial discussions with the owner to booking and then throughout our stay. We only had one issue during our stay which was caused by very windy weather blowing leaves and dust into the swimming pool which clogged up the filters. We texted the owner about the problem and the pool attendant came the following morning to sort it out which we were very happy with.
I would recommend this villa to friends/family as it really is a lovely place (some of the photos on the website don't do it justice), good value for money and perfect for relaxing and having fun with the family. The gardens and Moroccan terrace were beautiful and we enjoyed sitting outside with a glass of wine in the evenings.
In terms of the layout of the villa, there is a large double bedroom upstairs and then a twin bedroom immediately off this one, and then a dressing area and bathroom. Downstairs there is another double/twin bedroom and a single one, and a bathroom in between these. There is also an annex which is attached to the main house which has a double bedroom downstairs and some limited space upstairs. The size of the villa was more than adequate for our party and combined with extensive gardens and outside areas, there was a real feeling of spaciousness. The villa is in a gated community and it felt safe and secure. There were other houses in the vicinity but the villa was not overlooked and felt private.
We hired a car and the location was great to access other places such as Antibes, Juan les Pins, Cannes, Nice and Monaco/Monte Carlo. The local village of Valbonne was small but very nice and worth a trip. You do need a car though unless you intend to stay at the villa all the time as there isn't much within easy walking distance. The Carrefour supermarket is just over a mile away and this was ideal for stocking up on shopping.
Overall, we were very impressed by the villa, the service provided by the owner Alain and thought the South Of France was a beautiful place to holiday in. We would highly recommend it - hence the 5 star review.
