We are an English family that have lived in Hong Kong for almost 30 years. My husband is an architect and I work in the property industry for JLL. We have owned several homes in HK that we have renovated and sold. We have children at university in Canada and UK
Anne-Marie Sage purchased this villa in 2010
I took the children to this area to study for their A'Levels and fell in love. I started searching for property and really wanted something that was reminiscent of the area and the past. The moment I walked into this home I knew it was the right one for us, it has such a wonderful feel.
The view of both the bay and the little church in Magagnosc. The house itself is not grand but so pretty and welcoming, i love the brick work, the gardens. Its a perfect size for our family not too big, in a quiet location yet close to everything.
Thank you for a lovely week in your beautiful villa. Everything was perfect. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and Robert was extremely helpful.
Fantastic villa, the kitchen is amazing and there are lots of outdoor spaces to enjoy the sunshine. The booking process was smooth and quick.
We really enjoyed our time here in Sept. Would highly recommend a stay here to others!
Everything we hoped for!!
Our family of four had the most wonderful stay in this beautiful villa. The villa was very comfortable, clean and spacious. The views across the hills to the coast were simply outstanding and the lights glistened at night. We relaxed on the outdoor sofa and soaked up the sun and views. The kitchen was well equipped and the pool was divine. We had so much fun. We would like to thank the owners and also Robert the property manager who greeted us on time, with provisions and a warm welcome.
We would definitely recommend this villa and hope we get the opportunity to stay there again.
We loved our 2 weeks in this villa. The most amazing views from the terrace, nice gardens, great layout of house for us. House very well equipped with barbecue and DVD player / English TV. Robert was extremely helpful with any queries we had. I would not hesitate to recommend this villa.
Super authentic lovely french villa, with nice pool area.
Generel in good condition, but could use a Little "brush up" with the outside furnitures.
The managers of the house , Robert & Marysee, did provide us a super service, which we liked a lot :-)
We can only recomend this house, and would love to come back one day. :-)
Due to the anti social flight timing we arrived at 23:00 on Saturday. We were met by the very cheerful manager Robert, who introduced us to the charming villa. There was a very generous welcome pack in the kitchen including English tea bags! The villa provides elegant easy living for a full family with extra room for friends in the pool apartment. Breakfast & dinner on the terrace with the stunning views will be sadly missed! We stayed for two weeks & wished we'd booked for longer.... In fact we liked it so much that we've decided to relocate. We never ran out of things to do, from the ancient villages of Gourdon to St Paul the wonderful beaches at Theoule & the gourmet food at the Bastide St. Antoine. I'd wholeheartedly recommend this villa.
Wir hatten eine tolle Zeit (14Tage) im Haus.
Jedes Zimmer ist individuell eingerichtet und die Küche bietet jede Menge Platz zum Kochen und ist sehr modern.
Das Grundstück mit Pool ist wunderschön und man hat einen herrlichen Blick bis zur Küste.
Der Verwalter Robert ist sofort vor Ort, wenn etwas nicht in Ordnung sein sollte. Er ist sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit.
Das Haus ist sehr zu empfehlen.
