My name is Nick Peel and I manage this villa as one of my responsibilities working for R&Q Investment Holdings plc. The company who prides itself on a market leader in its own field insists upon the same standards being achieved across the company including our holiday villas. Please feel free to research our company for yourself.
Mr Nick Peel purchased this villa in 2003
This villa was chosen due to its location closest to the facilities in the village and also the spacious garden and patio areas. With the latest improvements this year I believe it now offer a clean, bright but homely atmosphere.
This was our first visit to the ‘sister’ Villa, and we shall be returning this year for a second visit.
The same comments apply as to Villa 23, and although Villa 36 is the same layout as Villa 23, its location is better if any of the party has minor mobility problems.
We are a family of 3 (2 adults and a 10 year old). We were looking for somewhere in the sun with a private pool so our daughter could swim.
Nick's villa did not disappoint. Nick was very easy to deal with and made the whole transaction process informal and simple. Even though we arrived very late/early in the morning, Anne (who looks after the villa) had ensured that everything was clean with keys left in a pre-agreed hiding place and beds made ready for us.
The villa itself is on a golf resort, something we know nothing about but the whole of pont royal is very well looked after and the manicured golf course did look fantastic... there were loads of golfers out all of the time - so we assume it is a good course!
Area wise there isn't much to do unless you have a car, there are a few little stores on site - but we drove to the 'Intermarche' iin Mallemort which was only 5 mins away and had everything a decent supermarket in the UK would have and more... To be fair, we just spent most of the week out in the private garden/pool area which is so private that even though the wind really picked up on a couple of days, all we felt was a gentle breeze thanks too the hedges surrounding the pool and terrace. It's worth noting for any families like ours who are on holiday for the pool that it has the sun all day long, and there are shady areas for the children if they get too hot.
There is a BBQ which we cooked every meal on which is gas powered so that made things simple too and if you get boared there is also a ping pong table which was great fun! Inside the living room is large and there is an ultra sharp smart LED TV which we were able to pair our laptop with over the fast Wifi (10mb minimum download and great coverage throughout the property and garden) so that we could watch films in the evening with a beer!
It's about 30-40 mins from Marseille airport and eurostar terminal in a car. Don't know what else to say but thank you Nick for sorting out everything and Anne for your hospitality - we will hopefully be back one day :)
We would highly recommend this villa, having just returned from a wonderful 2 week stay there. Immaculately clean and well maintained, we found everything we needed from colanders to chess sets! The mountain bikes and table-tennis were a great success with the teenagers (and grandparents!) Premium location virtually at the lakeside and possibly the closest villa to the P&V Village.We will be back!
Golf du Pont Royal offers far more than just a fantastic golf course and luxurious accommodation. Even without venturing out of the gates into Provence there is plenty to do on top of relaxing by the pool drinking a glass of fine French wine. Most within easy walking distance including cycling, tennis riding and volleyball. For details on availability of the Pierre & Vacances facilities call their reception on 00 33 49 0575454 as they are out of our control. Tennis is also available in Mallemort a five minute drive away. If you have children they can be packed off to go paint balling and there is also a kindergarten for the younger ones! There may be some restrictions on the village activities during the peak season.
Also available within the Pont Royal holiday village are restaurants and bars as well as a food shop that stocks the basics. The hotel reception has a cash machine as does Mallemort that usefully has an Intermarche.
