A wonderful villa set in a beautiful location with some amazing panoramic views. Just stunning !
The villa was truly wonderful. From it's fantastic location, to it's stunning gardens and awesome pool and spa. We stayed in the villa for two weeks and it felt like a fantastic family get away home. The villa is a great size and was really spacious with lots of space for the whole family to relax. The BBQ was great and we were able to eat outside every evening overlooking the wonderful Nice seafront. It was extremely peaceful but at the same time just a short drive to local shops and indeed the centre of Nice. Patrick and Patrice were most helpful in preparing us to stay at the villa and through them we arranged a fabulous chef to come and cook for us one evening at the villa. My wife, my mother-in-law, son and daughter along with myself had a great time playing in the wonderful pool and just generally relaxing in the glorious sunshine. Many thanks for letting us stay in your wonderful home for 2 whole weeks. It was fabulous !
Thanks a lot for your kind words, We're glad you enjoyed your stay at the villa and we hope to have again the pleasure to welcome you.

Thanks for your comment. We're glad you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to welcoming you again.
Wonderful vacation with four generations
Four generations just spent a fantastic week at this beautiful villa in Nice, to celebrate my mothers 60th birthday. Everyone loved it! The outside area is so beautiful and has an amazing view over the Mediterranean sea. Stunning both day and night! The only problem you will have if you rent this house, is that you'll never want to leave it..
The owners and the property manager were really nice and helpful. We all want to go back to this paradise in Nice! I highly recommend it!
Thank you very much for your kind words. We're glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to welcoming you again.

Outside area view and setting is wonderful!
We had a very pleasant stay. The outside area view and setting is all you can ask for. It made us want to hang out in the villa more.
The pictures are well representative of the villa.
Thank you for your comment. We're glad you enjoyed your stay.
All the best,

Fabulous Fiftieth Birthday
I could not have been more pleased celebrating my Fiftieth Birthday with some of my closest girlfriends at this beautiful villa!
The accommodations were lovely, clean and very comfortable. The outdoor patio was our favorite place to gather, enjoy a glass of wine and drink in the view.
Upon the recommendation of the owner, we enjoyed a catered dinner one evening that was a gastronomical delight. Our delicious meal was served on the outdoor patio over looking the Mediterranean Sea and a gorgeous sunset.
The local manager was extremely responsive and helpful to us throughout our stay.
I would highly recommend a vacation here!
