Super villa with everything you need for a great holiday.

  • 5 of 5

Villa Martelles is a very well equipped villa with stunning views of Le Bar-sir-Loup and surrounding countryside. Only 40 mins from Nice airport (remember to have coins for the motorway toll) and 10 mins drive from supermarket at Chateauneuf-de-Grasse.

The villa has great facilities and very spacious. We were a family of 6 and our grandson had a great time in the pool and playing pétanque.

The owner Lee was very helpfull and gave lots of good advice regarding local restaurants, shops and sightseeing.

A great and memorable holiday for us all!

Beautiful and Remote

  • 5 of 5

The villa and Lee the owner are everything we expected and more. The location is remote with amazing views but a 30 minute walk to Bar sur Loup helped us burn the calories we consumed! The two recommended restaurants in Bar sur Loup were delightful. A car (or taxi) is essential if you want to explore the coast but this was not a problem for us. Thank you to Lee for letting us share your lovely home.

Most amazing place for most amazing birthday

  • 5 of 5

From start to finish our host Lee couldn't have done enough for us.The house itself was beautiful and exceeded expectations.We were a group of eight adults and it was the perfect place to celebrate!The location is stunning and only approx a forty minute drive from Nice airport however I would recommend having your own transport.The interior of the house was furnished to a very high standard and was spotless.Hopefully we will be returning in the future!

Wonderous getaway

  • 4 of 5

The house was very spacious and clean. The view fantastic. If you want to get a way from the hustle/bustle of a busy city, this is definitely one place to stay. Lee was informative with suggestions and very welcoming. We are a family of five (17, 15, & 12 yo) and we will always remember our vacation here. The kitchen has pretty much all you need and even a washer (no dryer) The pool was very refreshing after our travels to NIce, Cannes, neighboring villages, and hike to Gorges de Verdan. Several places to eat but you have to drive there.

Be ready to drive in narrow roads though, coming from the wide US roads, it was a challenge to get there but got used to it! Thank goodness for GPS---worth the drive to the beautiful home with a view at a very affordable price. Thanks Lee!

Wonderful Property

  • 5 of 5

It's clear from the photos that this villa is rather special and we certainly weren't disappointed.

The property has been recently renovated and the owners have spared no expense - the quality of everything is excellent and the layout and design works very well. We were amazed how spacious the villa is, both inside and out, and the views of Le Bar-sur-Loup and the surrounding countryside are spectacular - a photo can't really do them justice.

We've visited the south of France many times and so are quite familiar with many of the lovely villages in the area but hadn't visited nearby Valbonne before - that's a little treasure and a must-see place to visit with lots of nice places to eat.

And also worth mentioning that the owner, Lee is lovely - so friendly and helpful. We had a thunderstorm one day which took out the internet but she flew back from Paris the next day to ensure it was fixed!

Would definitely recommend this property.
