My husband and I had a wonderful time staying at this beautiful villa. Excellent location, just 2 mins walk to the lovely white sandy beach and 5 mins drive to the local shops. The accomodation was extrememly clean, all the bedrooms were very spacious with en suits. Downstairs was a large bedroom ideal for children. Beautifully French decorated with a magnificent marble staircase. Great modern kitchen with everything you could need. Fabulous large outdoor area for entertaining and a terraced swimming pool to cool off.

We spent three nights at Villa Mimosa with 6 friends and could have easily stayed a week or more. A car for transport is definitely recommended. There are many great restaurants close by.

Villa Mimosa was the pinnacle of our European holiday, it had a lovely friendly feel and we highly recommend it.

Villa Mimosa is a lovely villa - very convenient for all amenities (shops, market, restaurants, buses, beaches etc), yet on a quiet residential street. Sitting out on the terrace with the kids happy splashing in the pool - it really doesn't get any better. We did spend a lot of time as well on the beach which is only a short walk away.

The villa is newly decorated and appointed. It's very spacious, comfortable, and is described accurately in the listing description. The kids bunk room is lovely, a 'good fun' room. Most of the bedrooms have terraces and there is a lovely dining terrace off the main living room.

The owners couldn't have been more helpful and pointed us in the right direction to the local restaurants and beaches.

The place has a very genteel feel to it. It seems to have avoided the excesses of other places on the French Riviera.

It's not a big place, it's easy to reach anywhere in the town on foot. There is a lovely walk along the old railway track which leads you to several of the beaches along the coast. It's also a good base for exploring further afield..into St.Tropez to the East or Toulon to the West.

I would definitely recommend Rayol as a wonderful, relaxing holiday destination, and Villa Mimosa is the place to stay.
