Customer Reviews

  • VALB103 - The villa is a comfortable size, we were two families, 4 adults and 4 children and it never felt cramped. The bedrooms are laid out nicely. The pool is a good size too, not massive but long enough to have a nice dip. The kitchen is very well equipped, literally everything you could want there, and we really enjoyed buying local produce and taking the opportunity to create some really special meals. In addition there is a bbq outside, and we had a great time bbq-ing in the evenings after a day of playing in the pool. The grounds are gated and fenced so it's also very secure. The owners were very helpful, they have a great deal of information on the local area, and they seemed to genuinely be trying to ensure we had the best holiday possible. They were also very professional when making the booking, responding to emails quickly and accommodating our special requests. Valbonne village is very picturesque, has many shops and restaurants and is less than 1km walk.

  • VALB103 - A wonderful villa. We got a very warm welcome from Derek and Gay after a long long journey. The house is lovely. Beautiful linen, extremely clean, comfortable beds, very well equipped kitchen and a great pool and patio. Wifi was a great plus. We have 3 small children who loved the villa. It was easy living with the big doors going out from the kitchen straight to the patio, covered eating area and the pool. The walk to town is an easy one with pavements much of the way. It takes 10 mins (adult pace). We took a stroller everywhere and managed any steps in town without drama. It's an uphill walk home but nothing too taxing and our 5 year old managed it without any issue. Derek and Gay couldn't do enough for us, they were kind enough to pick up some family members from the airport and made a real fuss of our son who had a birthday while we were there. We can definitely recommend this villa as a extremely comfortable place to choose with great amenities. We can recommend the curry house just off the main square and the ice cream parlour also off the main square. Restaurants don't begin serving in the evening until 7pm so anyone with small children may be best to feed them before going out unless they can wait!

  • VALB103 - We stayed for 3 weeks with our 2 little girls and were joined by various members of our family throughout the period. The villa is beautiful and is very well equipped with everything you could possibly need for an amazing holiday in Valbonne. The bedrooms are spacious and have plenty of storage. There are fans in each bedroom so air conditioning is not necessary. The living areas downstairs work really well and the kitchen, dining room and lounge open onto the terrace which means that keeping an eye on the children easy! We loved being walking distance to the town so no need for cabs. The owners are absolutely delightful and on hand to assist with absolutely anything you need.

  • VALB103 - We consider ourselves to have been very lucky in finding such a beautiful villa with personality, charm and luxury, (not just a sterile hotel). The villa has been thoughtfully laid out with families specifically in mind with up to date bathrooms in excellent order, spacious downstairs area and a very well presented kitchen. The owners are a considerate and attentive couple who were delighted to assist with any of our needs during our stay. This villa is opulent and spacious which gave our party of seven the privacy we needed. The layout of the Villa from the kitchen to covered eating area flows to a beautiful new swimming pool where at all times you can watch and ensure safety of any children. This can be done whether relaxing to eat or simply lazing on a sun lounger. The accommodation was impeccable. The owners are efficient and respond to you very quickly with any enquiries. The holiday was further enhanced with Gay's limitless knowledge of the area, places to visit, drink and eat. Absolutely wonderful and it met all our expectations! Highly recommended!

  • We were a family of 7 in total - 4 adults and 3 children and the villa can accommodate this number very comfortably. Lots of open plan space on the ground floor for everyone to be sociable or for someone to perhaps find a quiet area to relax. The outdoor eating area is completely covered and provides welcome shade from the hot sun. We had lots of long, lazy lunches here and, in the evenings, we often cooked on the BBQ. From this terrace the pool is in full view making it ideal to keep an eye on the younger ones swimming too! Other than flowering potted plants the garden areas are not watered. This certainly assists with keeping mosquitoes to a minimum. However, because of this, don’t expect lush green lawns to laze around on. The plot is a very generous size and very private. Internally the villa has everything you could possibly need on a holiday. Extremely well equipped kitchen, washer and drier in utility room along with clothes airers. (We came back with absolutely no washing to do!!) There are even hats hanging in the hallway in case you forgot yours! On the upper floor are 4 bedrooms. We found it particularly useful that 2 of the bedrooms are accessed up a couple of steps and through a door. This meant that children could be slightly further away from downstairs noise if they are earlier bedders. The property is very safe and secure and at no time did I feel uncomfortable, even when I stayed alone at the property for the day. Shutters or grilles in every window for maximum security. Ample car parking area at the front of property too. We were there at the tail end of the recent heatwave and the weather was somewhat hotter than the seasonal average. The shutters managed to keep the sun out of the property and, later in the day, opened them up to allow a breeze through. We did use the fans provided to their maximum capacity due to the heat throughout our stay as there is no integrated air conditioning or mobile A/C units. Derek and Gay were excellent hosts, popping up in the morning to clean the pool. This takes no more than 30 minutes although you do not need to wait in for them. The village of Valbonne is approx a 20 minute walk from the villa. It’s a downhill walk into the village but this means it’s an uphill return journey to the villa! It wasn’t an issue for us as we ambled along at the pace of the children...Valbonne is stunning by the way! Lots and lots of local attractions that the children loved. Perfect family holiday!
