About the property

This magnificent building dating from the eighteenth century, is located in the small green valley of Sospel, a charming village in the hinterland of Nice. A home with a comfortable and ideal for families with children. It stands in the middle of a green 1 hectare of lush vegetation to a change of scenery. Here you can enjoy such fascinating and spend a relaxing holiday. However, the house is not cut off from the rest of the world since the beaches are only 15 km away. Enjoy the midday sun near the swimming pool, and if the tape too hard, you can always find a little bit of shade for a nap lulled by the chirping of cicadas. In addition to the possible excursions, you can go strolling through the streets of Monaco or Menton without forgetting those of Nice. A bowling awaits you on site.

Comfortable, rustic home in Sospel, France

  • 4 of 5

We were looking for a home large enough to accommodate 7 adults. The place was the right size for the 7 of us. We focused on the back country and the location was just right.

The windy road to the place took some getting used to but we finally enjoyed those hairpin turns:) There is an extra fee for towels or bring your own, that is the only thing we were not used to when renting a vacation home. Other than that the place worked out very well!!

Amazing Location, great house

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely place for a holiday. Amazing rural location, great pool, lots of parking, BBQ area with outside seating and 2 outside eating tables !! .

We were a group of friends in the area for a biking holiday and this place was more than we could have hoped. We arrived by car and found the place fairly easily as we had the very precise Google maps location. The villa is accessed from the main road down a steep concrete drive. The entrance to which is not totally obvious and you have to be careful with speeding drivers. you descend the drive and enter the private drive to the property through the large gates. This then takes you down to the house and its parking which is in a secluded valley with some land and some friendly cows in a neighbouring field. It sits in a deep valley with tall hill to the west and east. There are hills to the south but they do not block the sun.

The house has a south facing terrace with a sunshade and large table for al fresco dining. It also has a BBQ area on the pool level with some outdoor seating a small table by the entrance to the pool. The pool itself is perfect for lounging in after a hot day biking or sightseeing. its about 8-10m long and about 3-4m wide. It has about 6 loungers around it and when we were there, it caught the sun from about 7am until 6.15pm.

The house was clean and tidy when we arrived, with fresh bedding at the end of each bed.

The kitchen is not huge but is well stocked and fine for cooking for up to 8 people .

Bedrooms are fine but one of the bedrooms is on an upstairs mezzanine/internal balcony and doesn't offer much privacy. we didn't have an issue but some might.

If you want to eat out simply, we used a couple of the restaurants in Sospel and found them well priced. Sospel is a nice little town but the walks in the surrounding hills are spectacular.

Overall it exceeded our expectations and we would come again ....

Schönes Haus, dringender Handlungsbedarf!

  • 1 of 5

Für acht Personen sollten vier abgetrennte Schlafzimmer und wenigstens 3 Bäder sowie separate Toiletten vorhanden sein, soweit gut, das weiß man vorher aus der Beschreinung! Was man aber nicht weiß: Kein Trinkwasser im Haus, teilweise unzureichende Betten, teilweise kein Unterbringung für Kleidung und eine fast komplett zu ersetzendes weil schmuddelige Küchenausstattung, insbesondere Gläser und Besteck. Der Grill ist für acht Personen eine wirkliche Lachnummer, zusammengefaßt: Das sind erhebliche Mängel bei nicht gerade geringen Mietkosten. Zudem erfodert die Zufahrt SUV's, vollbepackte PKW's setzen auf! Positiv sind die ruhige Lage ohne Nachbarn, Terasse und Poolbereich gehen in Ordnung.

Skøn pool og skønt område !

  • 4 of 5

Dejligt hus og virkelig skøn pool . Ejeren var sød og imødekommende. Fin korrespondance og hurtige svar. Rent hus.

Jeg vil dog gøre opmærksom på at på den hovedvej, som man bor som en sidevej til, må man ikke gå eller cykle på. Det er derfor ikke hensigtsmæssigt at have børn med ud på cykeltur direkte fra huset.

Desuden trænger nogle af sengene til en upgrade . En tur i IKEA eller lignende efter et par nye senge i nogle af soveværelserne ville gøre underværker da man tydeligt kan mærke fjedrene i madrasserne.

Bon séjour

  • 3 of 5

Avons séjourné 2 semaines dans cette magnifique villa avec piscine. Personnel très accueillant. Entretien quotidien de la piscine assuré. Villa située dans un cadre isolé et calme.

Toutefois à noter des points négatifs: -literie vétuste (piqûres d acarien et pas confortable)

-accès à la villa très accidenté (non conseillé aux voitures bas de caisse)

-pas d accès à internet malgré le wifi

-installation audiovisuelle dépassée

Il est fort dommage que ce genre de petits détails, malgré la prestation proposée, nuisent au séjour.
