What a wonderful home and town and host(s). We had such an amazing stay with Denis and Gigi, I cannot say enough positive things. We are very seasoned travelers and have rented many homes through booking sites but this was the best experience we have ever encountered.
Their communication prior to our arrival was timely and informative. The information listed on VRBO is very accurate.
The home was well stocked (dishwashing soaps, body soaps, laundry soap, olive oil, vinegar, a few necessary spices, salt and pepper, toilet paper, & paper towels). This level of attention to detail and comfort is so appreciated, as we have stayed in other homes where we had to bring ALL of these simple necessities. Plenty of cooking utensils and a cooktop just large enough to feed our traveling crowd of three. (I am not very tech savvy, therefore I could not figure out how to work the mirco convection oven).
The beds were incredibly comfortable (best sleep I have had in years!) Having access to a washing machine was very helpful, and a drying rack was provided on our lovely private patio.
The pool was incredibly clean and the perfect temperature. We also hired their son for two early morning personal training sessions on their private fitness area. Highly recommend this activity! Denis also offered his bicycles and had lots of recommendations for nearby fitness activities (hikes, etc)
We did not rent a car, and took a taxi from the train station in Cannes ($40). We then relied on Uber to transport us to the beaches and Cannes but there are several bus options (free and low cost) within a very short walk. The little town is very close by, with a boulangerie, produce market with fresh rotisserie chicken and a very nice staff. There is also an overwhelmingly large hypermarket with everything you can imagine within a 10 minute walk.
We took advantage of the nearby private beaches for SUP and chaise/umbrella rentals, which was a very short drive from the house ($8 each way AVG)
The area of Mandelieu-Napoule waterfront has many restaurants of varying costs, some better than other's (Denis and Gigi have a little list prepared in the apartment).
Everything was simply perfect and we were so sad to leave. We will return. Merci!
