Why Sylvia,Polly or Brian chose Mandelieu-La Napoule
This property gives those who dislike mass tourism the chance to relax in a home from home situation. It is not overlooked by any other apartment and being east ,west and south facing captures every ray of sunshine. An exclusive address, peaceful and yet near enough to visit all the wonders of the Riviera. At the end of the day watch the wonderful sunset from the terrace.This apartment has probably one of the best positions on the development (according to the architect) Being a gated development it is very safe .Owners are either French or from Northern Europe. Many residents are permanent. We have charming neighbours. Please check out our additional information below the prices as this could save you money on a booking. We are always delighted to give additional information on the area suitable to your interests.
What makes this Apartment unique
This is an all the year round destination with a wonderful climate. In each month there is something to do and see. Life is never dull in this magic area of France. If you do not know the area we can help you plan visits to suit your interests. There are very few apartments like ours that have the benefit of an east west and southern aspect. It is an advantage in this region NOT to be on the coastal road because of the high volume of traffic.Whilst the coast is undoubtably beautiful many hill villages are specatular and should not be missed. The temperatures are usually 2 degrees higher than Nice. It is normal to be able to swim in the sea in October comfortably. Some swim right up to Xmas. Average high temperatures as given by 'world wide online' for Mandelieu La Napoule.However with recent world wide climate changes we are finding temeratures much higher than those given. Jan.13 C.

Having just finished our holiday I can’t recommend this place highly enough.
The accommodation was well kept, easy to find, secure and included everything we required as a base for us to start exploring the coast line over 10 days.
For a family of 4 from the local village with multiple restaurants and shops to the many beaches dotted along the coast to St Tropez we have struggled to fit everything we wanted to do in.
Top things to see for us were a day at Port Grimaud where you, and more importantly the kids, can drive small boats around what’s known as the Venice of the Riviera, swim at La Trayas where little coves hide beautiful beaches with clear waters and the beach at Théoule-Sur-Mer. Alternatively a day at the local pool was also perfect for a lazy day.
All in all a top holiday for us and will be recommending to others as well as returning in the years to come.
It gives us great pleasure to receive such a lovely review especially as you have taken the time to give such useful information on interesting places to visit that we had not included. Thank you.
Wonderful location, tranquil scenario
We are regular visitors to the South of France at varying resorts but have to say that our week at Maryland 2 provided the most tranquil and relaxing scenario of them all. We won't repeat all the comments provided by previous reviewers, it is however safe to say that they are all true, a wonderful location.
Unlike the other visitors we didn't hire a car, we preferred to walk for the shopping and use the bus for trips to the beach etc. Quite hilly in places, so distance walking won't be appropriate for everyone. We did eat a couple of times at the golf club, helpful staff and wonderful views. The swimming pool is ideal with plenty of sun loungers available.
Prior to the holiday visit we exchanged several e-mails with the owner who provided all the information we required. We were most appreciative, so handy to be able to converse directly with the person who knows it all. For those of us preferring to book private apartments around the world this should be a facility available to us all.

So pleased to have appreciative clients who were confident to book with us directly.
Lovely Apartment - Superb Views
Apartment is excellent and so are views- I will write a bit about the Golf as I don't think it is mentioned enough.
We are a family of 4 and were looking to play a couple of rounds on holiday.
The Barbossi course is superb and the staff welcoming and friendly.
We bought a card of 6 rounds x 9holes for me and 12rounds of 9 for my son (15)
After 3 pm you can play as much as you want for no extra.
The cost for us both was just over £400 which Isn`t at all bad for what you get.
The club house was a 14 second drive from the main gates and my wife and daughter would often be having a drink on the club house veranda when we finished.
Everyone really enjoyed the holiday so much so we have already rebooked for 2016.
As 4 holes are visible from the apartment they always knew where we were and didn't feel we had disappeared for too long.
How thoughtful to give up to date Information on the golf as it is difficult to keep up with changes. We are always delighted to have nice families return as the neighbours appreciate faces they know.
We had a lovely holiday in this lovely apartment. The views from the apartment are beautiful and it is a very peaceful place to stay. The apartment is well equipped and comfortable. Location of the apartment is excellent and we were able to visit many lovely places. Would recommend this apartment.
If you want to go to the Cote D'Azur without all the mess you will find at Cannes or Monaco, Mandelieu-La Napoule really is a very good choice.
The town is lovely (you will fall in love with this place) and also the surroundings.
The apartment is beautiful: clean, nicely furnished, very comfortable, and itself has everything you could need (well stocked with towels, blankets, kitchen/bathroom supplies, etc). Blazing fast internet too!
It also has a lovely views of the Golf Course and, in the evening, of an extraordinary sunset. It is near the great pool and, if you play golf, not far from the first tee.
The owners were very kind and responsive to any requests we had. They provided a detailed account of the neighborhood and the location of all the amnenities a visitor might need. Thank you very much! We enjoyed every minute!
I agree ,this year there have been a lot of road improvements and buiding in the major tourist areas.Thankfully Mandelieu La Napoule manages to escape the effect of the film festival and the Monaco Grand Prix
A lovely apartment in a beautiful situation.
The apartment is an ideal holiday retreat. Its situation is a delight, in a secure location, with a stunning outlook from the living room balcony towards the Tanneron to the north and the Esterel hills to the west – ideal walking country on your doorstep. Two good-sized bedrooms share a lovely balcony with a pleasant view towards the adjoining golf course. A balcony on both sides of the flat provides sunshine throughout the day. Furniture is tasteful and comfortable and the kitchen is very well-equipped. A car is essential and can be securely parked underground. Shops and other facilities are five minutes distant in nearby Mandelieu with hypermarket, baker, butcher and chemist. The delightful village of La Napoule is a journey of 10 minutes, with more shops, quality restaurants and lovely coastal walks. We rate this apartment very highly and hope very much to return.
We are delighted that you hope to return.your suggestions were most useful and we have now installed a safe for passports etc and the liqueur glasses.
Maryland 2 Riviera golf de. Barbossi .Located on the Cote d'Azur in the Alpes Maritime area of southern France,the sparkling waters of the Mediterranean lie a short distance from the apartment at La Napoule which has a castle,marina,hidden coves,river walks & free beaches .
La Napoule is a relaxed seaside resort and is only a 30 mins drive from Nice airport. It has recently had an elegant face lift making it one of the smartest destinations on the coast.This little port has not been taken over by mass tourism and offers good value restaurants. Prices are below that of Cannes.
Mandelieu shops and Wednesday market are excellent.There are a variety of supermarkets and a huge Geant superstore. Cannes is approximately 10 mins by car( or take the bus).
Nice old town has a beautiful flower market ,old interesting streets and antique market on Mondays.For culture vultures a there are a variety of art galleries and an Opera house. Tickets for the latter are cheaper than England St. Tropez, Antibes, Monte Carlo & Italian border are easily reached by car or train. the Italian border can be reached in under an hour by car.
Cap 300 at st Laurent du var is a fantastic indoor shopping mall,whilst Polygone Riviera at Cagnes sur mer is a new out door shopping mall which is very elegant and well worth a visit.
Lying within the beautiful grounds of the Riviera golf de Barbossi
, possibly the best gated secure residential development in the area ,this Maryland 2 apartment equally charms non golfers. A perfect retreat after sightseeing .
There are a wealth of both cultural & historic museums in the area, stately homes, gardens, art galleries, theatres and opera houses. Inland scenery changes rapidly to a mountain environment with stunning perched villages. The nearest to visit is the picture perfect Mougins made famous by Picasso.Enjoy hill walking, skiing, rambling and mountain pursuits . Visit the perfume centre of Grasse with its factory tours and old town .
They say Nice Carnival in Spring is second to Rio! The Monaco Grand Prix and biennial vintage Rally are a must for car enthusiasts. Take a 20 mins boat to the Lerins Islands for a picnic or down the coast to St Tropez . The Villa Ephrusi at Cap Ferrat with its superb gardens are beautiful all year round.Have lunch in the garden or sit and watch the fountains with music.This area is an all year destination with excellent climate.Many swim in the sea until December!
Golf: Mandelieu La Napoule boasts two golf courses.
A golf pass may be purchased at the tourist information centre in Mandelieu to play both the old course,on the coast road,and the Golf de Barbossi on the other side of town. One course is flat with Pine trees to avoid and a river to cross and the other hilly. Both are quite beautiful. Many other golf courses are to be found in the area- all in under an hours drive. We will provide extra information to those wishing to play golf
Ski: The nearest ski resort is just north of Grasse. at Greolieres les neige. Auron and Valberg being more challenging. Either drive or take the ski train from Nice. Just over the italian border and easily reached are more ski resorts.It is possible to ski in the morning and swim in the sea in the afternoon!
Bicycles may be hired locally. There is a safe garage room for bicycles.
