The studio was everything we expected and more. All the amenities and equipment needed for our holiday were provided and the studio and garden were pristine. The setting and sea views were absolutely amazing and we were blessed with beautiful weather to enjoy them in. Having a BBQ in the back garden was good fun, and we got to practise our fire lighting skills. The walk down the stairs to Nice centre is picturesque, but one needs to have energy ( and to have not had too much wine with lunch) to get back up! Fortunately, it is very easy to get the bus back, which stops very near the entrance to the driveway.
Sergio was the epitome of a perfect host. We felt welcomed into his home straight away and spent many hours putting the world to rights over a few beers or bottles of wine. He is a very knowledgable man and we were impressed with his ability to converse with us deeply despite English being his second language. He was fully accommodating when we asked if we could borrow some kitchen scales, and we feel any request he would have obliged where possible. And we cannot forget his dog, Brigitte, who kept us entertained with her patrolling of the garden in order to keep any cats out!
We had rented a car for our stay, but found we didn't need it much as we could easily use the buses and trains to get to the surrounding towns such as Antibes, Monaco and Cannes and they were very reasonable and saved driving through the little streets and finding parking.
We would definitely stay here again, and recommend the villa to anyone that wants a relaxing holiday in the Riviera.
