Wow - what a holiday! We looked at the reviews from previous guests, but never expected such a fantastic holiday. There are not enough superlatives to describe this villa, its position, its layout, its location and above all the care taken to ensure that we had a truly memorable holiday.
From the moment we contacted Maran, we felt that she gave us her utmost attention, ensuring even the finest details were looked after and that everything ran like clockwork. The car was organised (including the permit on the first morning), the fridge was stocked, the restaurants were recommended and even the trips were mapped out. Nothing felt like too much trouble.
The villa itself is simply wonderful - the pool is refreshing, the deck and gardens spacious, the shade and seating areas of the patio welcoming, the views become etched in your memory. Everything has been planned to the finest detail. The indoor garden, the en-suites, the games room, the airy and light lounge. The villa has everything for a family or large group. We even sampled the bananas and coconuts from the gardens.
Maran and Richard and their family make you feel so welcome and treat you like friends. Shanta cooks and cleans and is so friendly.
The position of the villa means that it is 10 minutes from the main tourist areas, the beaches and the shops, yet it feels like your own calm, peaceful and serene paradise. The use of the car means that you can 'nip' to the beach and a few minutes later you can be lazing by the pool.
The restaurants are superb. All cater for children and they are made to feel welcome, with no request being too much trouble. Our favourites being the Coal Pot, Big Chef Steakhouse and the Cliff at Cap. Having said that we ate out each evening and never had a 'bad' meal.
In short - if you want a spacious, peaceful and beautifully maintained villa, look no further than Chateau Devaux.
