Beautiful holiday home, very well maintained with lots of space and so much character.

  • 5 of 5

This is a magical place, situated with maximum privacy and amazing views of Bargemon. Very tastefully designed home,converted to a very high standard. Well kept with all the necessities in the kitchen for catering for a family. The only things I missed were a sieve and another larger pot for cooking for larger number, small things!!

Easy to walk into Bargemon in 10 minutes.

A very enjoyable place to visit and stay.

Beautiful villa

  • 4 of 5

Tastefully decorated villa in lovely location. I picked this villa as every bedroom looked lovely and indeed they were. Pool and surrounding areas were also great with good seating and plenty of loungers .

The only downside was the track from main road to the gates of the villa was very narrow and rough and not really suitable for our car.

The property is also surrounded by an electric fence which was to keep the wild boar from damaging the garden but I think this should have been mentioned in the advert .

The villa also had problems with smelly drains which affected three of the bedrooms at various times throughout the week.The owner did get plumbers in to try to rectify the problem but to no avail.

Overall if the drain problem was rectified I would definitely return to this villa as we had great holiday

Owner's Response: The property is reached via an unmade private road and it is fair to say that low cars (such as sports cars) might have difficulty. I have decided to amend the main advert to reflect this. All properties in this area have electric fences as the wild boar do tremendous damage if they get in. This has never been highlighted as an issue before, nevertheless I will consider putting this in the main details also. It is every owners worst nightmare when despite our best efforts to ensure the property is well maintained - something goes wrong which is outside of our control - right in the middle of a busy rental season! It appeared at first to be a simple problem with one of the drains, but despite calling out a plumber and then a septic tank specialist, it has transpired that we need to break the terrace by the front door and remove several stone flags in order for the problem to be rectified. This will be very noisy and dusty as the flags are cut and lifted, the plumbing repair will take about 2 days. It will take a further day or two to replace the flags. This work will commence next week whilst my family are staying in the property. We have been assured by the technician that we will have no further problems. I am more sorry than I can say if someone's holiday has been affected. Joyce Hibell Owner

Absolutely stunning villa !!!!!

  • 5 of 5

The mill was beautifully furnished with real attention to detail. As a family of 7 there was plenty of room & each bedroom / ensuite had a feeling of luxury. The kitchen was well equipped and the lounge was comfortable and spacious. Ideally located within an easy stroll of the village. We will definitely be coming back next year.
