We stayed for 3 weeks with our 2 little girls and were joined by various members of our family throughout the period. 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. 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 consider ourselves to have been very lucky in finding such a beautiful villa with personality, charm and luxury, (not just a sterile hotel). 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.
