A ONCE luxury Villa - We had a wonderful holiday in Sete, the city is beautiful, super beach.
The villas accommodation configuration is good for a group:-On the ground floor there are 2 two bedroom apartments, with kitchenettes (hobs, cookers, fridges, one 2 bedroom apartment has as dishwasher, the other has gap where the dishwasher used to be (this is not a good look), dining/lounge areas, the toilet is downstairs & shower room & two bedrooms upstairs (one twin & one double), on the small side with limited storage. There is also a studio apartment with double bed on mezzanine level, a captain bed on the ground floor with settee under, toilet & shower room on ground floor, along with the kitchenette/dining area (equipped as 2 bed apartments, again with the dishwasher missing). Each apartment on the ground floor has a private decked area at rear with dining table & chairs. Also on the ground floor is the Gym & Jacuzzi. In the garage are two 15kg washing machines & a drier. Plus 18 bikes, although most of the bikes look quite new they have not been maintained, luckily we took bike repair kits with us & made up 6 usable bikes.
On the first floor are three double bedrooms, the master bedroom with shower area & separate toilet, it is the only room with good storage, the other bedrooms are a little on the small side. Each of the other two bedrooms has a shower area in the room & share a separate toilet. Open plan kitchen, dining & lounge area. On the veranda, there is a large dining table, settees, pool, electric griddle (like they have in a kebab shop), rather than a BBQ. The whole villa would comfortably sleep 17 plus the baby’s cot.
Unfortunately we cannot give this villa 5 stars as the lack of competent maintenance and investment has left this once luxury villa tired and in need of a makeover. For the almost 10 & half thousand euro’s (For two weeks), we expected the villa to be in far better condition, & that all the equipment & facilities would be in good working order. We did translate a list of issues for Daniel, the manager, & later for Yvan the owner; they feel the villa is of a good standard!!! On this we will have to differ. It would help if there were instructions for all the equipment and facilities as Daniel does not speak English. We have hired a number of villas over the years, and have never been as disappointed with the condition as we were with this one.
On the Website, more up to date photos of the inside of the villa i.e. bedrooms, bathrooms and apartments would be good and less of the palm trees.
Property needs t.l.c.no WiFi.no televisions working.jaccuzi not working till 3 days into holiday reported WiFi and tv's first day still didn't work house needs a good remodelling I.e. new lounge suites as all are damaged.sliding doors don't shut or lock no instructions for equipment cooker micro wave etc.
Modern spacious villa with a pool and ideally located for access to warm Mediterranean beaches.
We had a lovely family holiday in this modern and fully equipped villa. Daniel the owners agent and handyman was there to meet us when we arrived even though we were 4 hour early. He gave us the grand tour of all the rooms and facilities and then left us to ourselves. The large kitchen and dining area comes with two large fridges and a freezer, (very handy) with plenty of utensils, pots, glasses and crockery. When we did have a small issue with the lack of hot water, Yvan the owner informed Daniel and he was there within the hour to sort the problem out. Access to the beach is via a pavement that takes you straight past a pleasant little bar on the beach with sun loungers and cocktails. Market day in Sete is on Wednesdays, it gets busy but its well worth a visit. For us the villa was exactly what we wanted and the location couldn't have been better, we only wish we could have stayed longer.
enjoyed by all of our large party ages ranging from 12 to 70 years.
he villa was perfect for our family vacation. The house is clean, well organized and privacy if you want it! The pool is solar heated and was comfortable to swim in. The hot tub is not hot but was nice on cloudy days. The kitchen was well equipped for us but not for the cook who was preparing meals for 14 every night. The walk to the beach was easy. The beaches are sandy and so beautiful. Our concerns were: 1. No beach towels. I wish I had known because we would have brought them. I have rented beach houses around the world and this was a first. 2. No hair dryers. I have yet to be in a hotel or vacation rental without a blow dryer. 3. No phone. If you are a foreigner, be sure that one person activates their cell for international. My suggestion to The owner would be to organize a guide to the house and the area for the guests. We had to wander to find what we needed. There was no grocery with in reasonable walking distance so a car is really necessary. Also, two towels per person would be nice especially with children. The washer and dryer were great but we did not go on vacation to do laundry. This is a place that we would return to without hesitation!
First of all, we would like to thank you for your trust and we are delighted that your stay in our villa pleased you.
The well being of our holiday makers is our priority and your comments allow us to improve the quality of your stays year after year.
Following your recommendations, we have put at your disposal beach towels as well as hair dryers.
Indeed, we do not supply telephones due to the logistic complications however, we remind you that you have free internet access and foreign tv channels.
Also, it is true that you have wished to get an independent concierge service which has asked to be in charge of your welcoming and consequently, we cannot have any control of your welcoming.
Apart from this execption, we usually welcome everyone of our guests so as we can together visit the villa and therefore explain the function of the jacuzzi temperature adjustment, the heated swimming pool and the sauna, etc…and to reply to any questions regarding tourist visits and local shops, etc…
There are lots of shops locally and we have the chance to benefit from large streets reserved uniquely for pedestrians and bicycles along the 17 kms of the coast.
We remind you that we provide 8 bicycles for your use.
You can also have access for example to :
- A bakery at 1 km
- A supermarket at 3 kms
- 8 restaurants along the beach less than 700 metres from the villa
- 3 fine grocery shops within 3 kms radius, etc…
We are available if you have any questions or inquiries during your stay.
