Guestbook comments from the manager

i hope this is ok as it heartfelt and honest...



There were six of us staying in Villa Pays Ribas in June this year. The Villa coped easily with us all. Every room had an en suite and loads of hot water at any time of day. The villa is beautifully kept both inside and out and the views are just magnificent and we mean MAGNIFICENT!. The personal touch was very much appreciated, from the bottle of local Rose wine chilling in the fridge on our arrival to the bountiful supply of towels and extra linen should we need it.

Sue, the property manager leaves an extremely useful House book with all kinds of useful information about the house and the surrounding area - where to eat and how to get there, where to shop and find the local markets. The Maybank family all work hard to ensure you have a very comfortable and relaxing stay in the Var region.



We have booked with Var Villas for quite a few years now and will be booking again in the future.

Just Perfect

  • 5 of 5
For us, a great holiday villa has to have a view to die for and this villa is doubly fortunate in that you get a fantastic view from the dining terrace, the pool area and the lower decked area, magical at night when all the lights are on in the garden and out to the sea.

The pool itself was brilliant one depth making it fun to play water games in. The villa was great - and our teenage son was especially impressed with the large flat screen TV with freeview channels. The sofas were comfy and tasteful, as was the other furniture - in fact everything was very tastefully decorated especially the main bathroom & 2 shower rooms which were very contemporary. Love the way the towels were neatly rolled up ready for use - a real 'boutique hotel' touch and the hamper with a bottle of local chill rosé wine left by Sue.

The location was very central for everything. The drive to Sainte Maxime (on the coast) was excellent - a good, fast road - and the beaches around Sainte Maxime (on the Frejus road) are, in our opinion, superior to anything further along the coast. And you can park easily, right by the beach! No pay and display!

The villa being just around the corner from the amazing Route de Vins was very useful although we actually preferred the local wine co-op (half an hour's walk approx through the vineyards) where the friendly staff were delighted to let us taste the (very reasonably priced and high quality) wine (and bring quite a bit home, too!)

The villa wasn't too far to the famous Gorges du Verdon and its lake - a nice day out. Draguignan with its American war cemetery was also just around the corner.

With this villa you get the best of all worlds. A real 'get away from it all' feeling, yet you're handy for just about everything and everywhere. Perfect.

I would absolutely recommend this property

  • 5 of 5
This is as idyllic as it gets - perfect location, panoramic views of the beautiful countryside and absolute peace and privacy. The villa has everything you may need to make your holiday easy and comfortable. The property is spotlessly clean, well-maintained and tastefully decorated throughout. We appreciated the comfortable mattresses and pillows, the upgraded linens and fluffy towels, the masses of hot water, satellite TV BBQ, and outside drinks fridge. WiFi, stereo, washing machine, dishwasher, huge fridge, iron, shelves of books and even duvets for the odd cool night.
The pool area is outstanding. It provides even more views over the vineyards and is a total sun trap. Beautiful memory. The covered terrace is a good place to read, listen to the birds and just relax. The location is ideal for exploring the whole region, so we set off each morning and returned mid-afternoon to swim, snooze, read and relax. Oh, and eat the goodies we'd bought at the country markets. It's one of the most relaxing holidays I've ever had. The House Book and maps provided were extremely helpful, thank you.
For wines try Chateau Ste Roseline, Chateau D'Esclans, although there are domaines dotted all over the place. For street markets, Le Muy on Sunday and Lorgues on Tuesday fantastic.
I would absolutely recommend this property - what you see on the website is what you get, and then some.

An excellent stay at this villa!

  • 5 of 5
I have been staying at this villa for 2 weeks every year for over 10 years. My holiday in 2011 was as excellent as all the others have been. The villa is set in a superb location with fantastic views of the surrounding countryside, very tranquil, and extraordinarily relaxing. The villa itself offers all the facilities one really needs for a comfortable and enjoyable stay. It is not 5 star luxury - for that you have to go to the coast and pay 3 times as much. However, it has all that one could need and is very comfortable. It's within easy reach of local shops, supermarkets and local provencal markets. There is a range of good quality restaurants in nearby villages. The villa's pool is unusually large for a private villa and is set in a fantastic sun terrace.

The local managers keep the place clean and spotless and are always on hand to help if needed, eg a major storm causes a power outage in the villa and surrounding properties - not uncommon in France.

I have always enjoyed fantastic holidays at this property and recommend it.

No customer service!

  • 1 of 5
Unfortunately our stay in La Motte did not turn out as pleasant as we originally had hoped. When we arrived at the Villa the cutlery and glasses were not properly cleaned which meant that the first thing we had to do was to do the dishes. Day number two the sink became clogged (we hadn’t flushed anything but water in it) which made it hard to cook and clean up afterwards. When I called the landlord about this she promised that it would be fixed within a day, it took almost 3 days until someone turned up and helped fix it.

As if this wasn’t enough we had one rainy day, and surprise, it turned out the roof was leaking in several places. In the information brochure it was also stated that an extra container of gas to the grill should be available, in case it ran out. This turned out not to be true and when we ran out of gas we had to wait until the next day until we got a new one.

All of these issues would have been ok if the landlord had acted in a professional and service minded way. Unfortunately we were treated very poorly and when we left she even threatened to take our deposit and she accused of us lying about the problems…. Not really customer oriented behavior.

The location in southern France is obviously lovely but if you are looking for a nice place to stay we have to recommend some other house with a different landlord in the area.

Owner's Response: I am not wanting to reply to this renter on line, in a tit-to-tat way, this is all very childish. What I will say is; they came, coursed a few problems which we dealt with, they tried to bully us asking for a refund; this comment is the result of not getting their own way. We have advertised with Home & Away (Holiday Rentals) since 2002.

La Motte is a typical Provençal village with winding streets leading from the Place the Mairie to the Clock Tower standing high above the village. From the Place de Horologe you can look down over the village to the river Nartuby that runs south through the village then to an impressive waterfall called Saut du Capelan. The village offers a few local shops, bar, restaurant and The Moulin de Pizay within the centre. Just outside the village are 3 good restaurants, all worth a visit. This area is charming surrounded by vine yards, and the local wine is the pride of the people living here as is the golf course, St. Endreol one of the prettiest around.

The main road into La Motte village is called August 15th Street, La Motte was the first village to be liberated in 1944, you can visit the memorial on the route de Bagnols en Foret just before the main entrance to the golf course.
