Wonderful vacation in a great house

  • 5 of 5

First of all, Virginie and Franck are great people who made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived at the house. They where there to greet us, explained everything and showed us how to take care of the pool. Actually, already before arriving, Virginie answered our questions via mail, which was a great help.

Unfortunately terror struck Nice only two days before our arrival, but the house is at 500 meters above the sea and we felt very secure there.

We especially enjoyed the well equipped kitchen and large balcony with gas grill where you can enjoy the view and kick back. The well maintained house with children rooms, trampoline outside and the great pool were all things that made this vacation especially great. The pool was of course the center of attention for the kids and they were rarely anywhere else except when going out to see things.

The view - ahh yes, the view - I have to mention that again - both during the day and in the evening it was absolutely breathtaking. Sitting there with a glass of Bandol Rosé looking at the lights coming on in Nice was just awesome. We never even switched the TV on.

We also liked that there was a breeze from the ocean almost each day, so while it gets very hot on some days, the house stays reasonable cool and sleeping was not a problem.

The road up the mountain to the house is a bit daunting the first time. In most places two cars cannot pass but everyone is team-working and it just works. On your first drive up the mountain you may, like us, reach a point where you think its got to be wrong, but just keep going - you are most likely on the right track. The road is a bit steep at times but not challenging or dangerous, so no need to worry and after driving the route 2-3 times you don't even think about it anymore.

Shopping is in La Trinité - about 15 minutes drive from the house, down the mountain. The Auchan supermarket is huge and has literally everything.

We can absolutely recommend the house, location and your host couple; Virginie and Franck - To both of you, thank you for making us feel welcome, for explaining everything and for making our vacation great!

Marvellous house in a very beautiful environment

  • 5 of 5

The view on Nice and on the mountains is wonderful! It helps you very much to get a relaxing holiday.

The house has all comfort a family needs during a holiday, the swimming pool is lovely. We especially appreciated the tranquility of the location. The first time you go up the hill with your car might be challenging. After two days driving up the hill becomes however a simple routine. We enjoyed the environment: the house is very close to Monaco, Eze, Cap Ferrat (villa Ephrusy de Rotschild is a must-see), Menton, the Alps, ... and of course Nice is also wonderful: a nice old city, a lot of different shops, a lot of different interesting musea (Villa Massena, Beaux Arts, Palais Lacarsis, etc.). Everything is present to have a holiday which is totally fitted to your preferences. Also the owners (Virginie and Franck) are very charming persons willing to help you if needed.

One of our best holidays ever ...

Contemporary property with breathtaking views!

  • 4 of 5

We had a thoroughly enjoyable stay at Virginie's property. The welcome was very warm and the owners extremely friendly and helpful. It was wonderful to be able to sit on the terrace and enjoy the breathtaking views of Nice and the coast beyond. We really enjoyed the contemporary style of the house and its generously sized pool and decking area. A car is needed to access Nice, restaurants and other amenities. The A8 motorway is reached by a 15 minute drive down the hill. The property is in an idyllic setting and ideal for those who want a peaceful and relaxing environment.

Modernes Domizil mit traumhafter Aussicht!

  • 5 of 5

Wir (2 Erw., 1 Kind) waren Ende August 2017 für eine Woche in diesem wunderbaren und ruhig gelegenen Feriendomizil einquartiert. Die traumhafte Lage rechtfertigt die etwas abenteuerliche Anfahrt auf die Hügel von Cantaron zur Genüge.

Von der großzügigen Terrasse hat man einen tollen Panoramablick über Nizza-Stadt und Flughafen bis zum Cap d'Antibes.

Das moderne Intérieur des geräumigen Hauses (großer Wohn-Ess-Bereich) ist geprägt von zahlreichen farbintensiven Artefakten des Künstlers / Vermieters Franck A., modernem Inventar und einer gut ausgestatteten Küchenzeile.

Abgesehen von unverzichtbaren Ausflügen in die nähere Umgebung verbrachten wir zur Freude unseres 10jährigen Sohnes viel Zeit am gepflegten hauseigenen Pool und genossen allabendlich die Dämmerung beim Grillen auf der Terrasse.

Virginie und Franck sind sehr liebe und hilfsbereite Vermieter, welche einem jederzeit bei technischen Fragen (Küche, elektr. Tor, Pool) sowie regionalen Tipps zur Verfügung stehen.

Wir würden diese Lokation jederzeit wieder buchen und können sie - was wir in unserem Freundeskreis bereits taten - nur wärmstens weiterempfehlen!

Excellent! A quiet, relaxing and great place.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the very nice and modern house of Virginie and Frank in September having seen it on the web and decided it looked ideal. From the warm reception received by this friendly couple to leaving we had a wonderfully relaxing time. The house is situated just outside Nice and has a great view of the town and bay and only takes a short while to get there. Every amenity you could require in the house was there, actually too much for us as we were only a couple but is ideal for two couples or a family.

Mornings were spent over a relaxing breakfast followed by a swim in exactly the right sized and right depth (as I tend to sink for some reason) pool. This was followed by a light lunch on the balcony in the sun and a bit more swimming and reading (an excuse for sunbathing.) There are, of course, plenty of places to visit within driving distance but we were there just to kick back. Shopping is easy at the massive Auchon (sp?) supermarket although we did hit the market in Nice old town once.

The only downside but as we have stayed in this region more than once but for some people may cause difficulties are the steep, narrow and twisty roads but you soon get used to them (although I had problems with my car getting into the car parking as it is a bit low.)

An excellent place to stay, many thanks Virginie and Frank (and daughter.)

Мы провели отличную неделю каникул в этой прекрасной вилле не далеко от Ниццы в начале августа !Были душевно встреченны хозяевами дома которые нам показали дом с сопроважаемыми объяснениями!Были приятно удивленны экипировкой кухни и наличием всевозможной посуды и электро приборами на кухни👍? А также многими вещами любезно предоставлеными хозяевами дома (мыло для рук,таблетки для посуд машинки и т д😊?)!Дорога к дому очень узенькая и извилистая но это стоит чтоб наслаждаться шикарным видом который открывается с терассы и большой гостиной с огромными окнами !Дети целыми днями проводили в чистом бассейне с тёплой водой .Не смотря что в доме нет кондиционера при температуре 30 градусов в доме не было жарко не днём не ночью так как открывая окна и двери все продувается ветерком .Мы отдыхали семьёй с 3 детьми и самому маленькому 3 мес ,хозяевами была предоставлена кроватка и пеленальный столик что оч удобно с маленьким ребёнком!Очень довольны нашим отдыхом и в нашей памяти сто процентно останется безумно красивый вид с вашего дома !Un grand Merci pour notre séjour chez vous !👍?
