Wonderful Villa

  • 5 of 5

This is a superb villa. Fabulous, private location with fantastic outlooks and position. It is very well appointed with quality and functional aspects throughout and is spacious beyond what the photographs can convey inside and out. Christian and Michele are first class owners and hosts. Their communication though booking and ahead of our arrival was timely, warm and helpful. Their welcome from provisions in the fridge to making sure we were acquainted with all we needed was great - the daily attention given to the swimming pool ensures it is immaculate. Without hesitation we would rent this villa again. Thank you.

Great house with Great surroundings. Wonderful pool. Fantastic hosts.

  • 5 of 5

We just had the greatest week in Michelle and Christians house. The location just outside Aix is great. Lot of things to see. The house is great. Cool at night and with a beautiful pool which We used very much. The pool was cleaned every morning.

Not in the pool, er played badminton, boukes or pingpong, or just relaxed by the pool.

We were very well received by our fantastic hosts, Michelle and Christian.

We hope to come back.

Excellent séjour

  • 5 of 5

C'est avec grand plaisir que nous mettrons une appréciation plus que positive sur notre sejour.

En effet, il y a des "bons plans" qu'il convient de partager.

La villa est impeccable, et conforme aux photos....voire mieux que sur les sur celles ci on ne se rend pas bien compte de la surface des piè à 8 on avait vraiment de l'espace!

La piscine est super agréable, une eau douce, limpide et plus que spacieuse...

Mais au delà de tout ce confort matériel, c'est l'accueil et la générosité des propriétaires qu'il nous semble important de mentionner dans cet avis.

Merci à Christian et Michèle.

Si nous retournons dans la region, nous reviendrons sans hésitation à Santoline

Owner's Response: Merci à Séverine et tous les membres de sa famille. Leur séjour s'est passé dans la joie et la bonne humeur et nous avons eu le plaisir de partager avec eux 2 "apéros" conviviaux. Au-delà de cela, des vacanciers modèles !

Propriétaires chaleureux, très attentionnés, discrets et réactifs.

Kit de survie et produits "maison" appréciés.

Nous recommandons cette location, très belle prestation sous une pinède reposante, grands espaces pour tout âge !
