Places of interest near this property
VFSM102 - GUEST COMMENTSMy husband and I rented Villa Sunsong in April 2012 and as we numbered only 3 - hubby, baby and me. I invited my best friend from my schooldays to bring her family - who numbered 4 - to spend the week with us. That we were able to live in the same villa, yet separately, was perfect for us as we were able to breakfast and dine together as and when we wanted due to there being all the requirements in both of the apartments.The villa was lovely with its cool marble floors and the big pool was a great hit with the children and we all loved the view from the sun loungers. The villa was perfectly located as we could pop over to San Remo in Italy, where I have always wanted to go and it's a mere 40 mins away.On arrival at the villa, we were met by the owner's manageress who couldn't do enough for us. She showed us where everything was from the baby highchair to extra china in case we needed more! She was very kind and helpful and I got the impression that I could call her anytime, had I needed to. We will definitely be back to stay next year.Mrs Skelton, BuckinghamshireThis was a beautiful stay! Though when you look it up and go there the first time, it appears a bit far away because of several slopes in the mountain. However, with a rental car, this is the perfect location to explore the Cote d'Azur and have a great view over the sea. The swimming pool we only saw from the window as it was December and very cold. But at least we were able to imagine the beautiful views you have from the spacious terrace. All amenities, including technical issues like TV for kids or Internet, were in a perfect up-to-date-state and the heaters, once turned on for the first night, are sufficient to heat the house in the winter time. The furniture is Provencal and very clean, also is everything else in the villa. The villa is located very close to Nice, only 15 minutes drive or even shorter, so are Monaco and Eze. We were there on my mother's birthday and my brother and family came to visit the lower apartment as a surprise. For two families who come there together to have a joint stay, the villa is perfect. As the pool is located on the one side of the upper apartment only,t o rent only one apartment in summer time is not recommendable.Elektra and her husband are total stars! They looked after the villa during our stay and were always there on the phone or in person to help us out with whatever questions we had. And they were so charming and helpful, which is very important as you do not have a reception desk like in the hotel. With their friendly welcome and their round t-he-clock hospitality, you never had the feeling you were disturbing them if you had any silly question about the house. And they even prepared a tour guide what and how to make excursions from the house that beats every Lonely Planet. Altogether, I would always recommend the villa and would be happy to stay there again! Thanks a lot, SusanneWhat a wonderful location. From the minute the doors opened onto the long gleaming marble hallway, we knew we were in for a treat.Spotlessly clean and very comfortable, the spacious accommodation allowed us to split up into groups so that the teenagers could be in the downstairs apartment while we oldies luxuriated on the main terrace. The downstairs apartment has a smaller terrace as well.Very comfortably furnished, luxurious bathrooms and adequate equipment.Remember to book beach towels for use at the amazing "Hollywood" pool.An excellent base to explore the Cote, we loved the Picasso museum in Antibes, and the antique shops by the port in Nice.A car is essential. Also driving up into the villages along the French/ Italian border was heavenly.I recommend a visit to Thiery, where we had a superb lunch at the hunting lodge and viewed the Alps from a special viewing spot high on a peak by the village church.
