Guestbook comments from the owner

Date of Stay 30 April 2011

We spent the first week of May in this wonderful villa. It certainly was one of the best holidays we have ever had, everything exceeded our expectations - even the weather. Since we have visited Riviera several times before, this time we just relaxed and enjoyed. Villefranche (10 mins with bus) was the most far away place we visited. Villa Dracoena is so well equipped that we even had dinner there most of the week, with male chefs around the grill. I can recommend this property to anyone, and certainly I hope to able to return to Villa Dracoena one day.

Highly Recommended!

  • 5 of 5

This villa was exceptional. We have travelled all over Europe and it was the only place we rented that exceeded our expectations and was even more spectacular than the pictures depicted. The caretakers, Christian and his wife, were extraordinary and kept the house nice and clean and were always there to help when needed. I would recommend this property to anyone looking for a place with easy access to the French Rivera.

Stayed several years ago...

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at Villa Dracoena March of 2006. It so absolutely exceeded any expectation we could have had. There are so many memories that we created from the wonderful Marmalade, the walks around the area, and Mt. Boron Pizza. This is one of the vacations we share with all of our friends, and some day hope to return. The owner was easy to work with, and the local caretaker was great.

Superb stay at the Villa Dracoena

  • 5 of 5

Our group stayed at the Villa Dracoena for a week at the beginning of June, and we had the times of our lives. The location of the villa is unbeatable (wonderfully elegant neighbourhood, close to Promenade des Anglais and the beach, as well as shops and restaurants, also close to bus stops), and the view is magnificent - even better than it looks in photos. The villa is gorgeous, very well maintained, with beautiful rooms and a very well appointed kitchen. Mr. and Mrs. Pax were very friendly and very helpful. We already miss our morning coffee on the terrace overlooking the Mediterranean and are very much hoping to be able to go back to the Villa Dracoena soon.
