Laura the owner is absolutely lovely and very easy to deal with which makes booking very stress free and straight forward. The house is located in a beautiful location with fantastic views over the Mediterranean. Although there are other houses around and about you really cant see them so all areas of the house and pool are extremely private. The rooms are all lovely and well proportioned and the pool is superb and much larger than average. We love this house and will definitely be returning.

The right place for a successful vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our third stay in Villa Amani fulfilled all our expectations also this year. The beautiful house, the stunning view, the quiet surroundings, the lovely garden and pool, and not to mention Rachel and Martin who did their utmost to make our vacation such a wonderful experience. Their cooking was excellent, and they even did all the shopping for us. The property is very clean and wellmaintained, and it is very easy to relate to the owner. We have stayed in Villa Amani both with friends and family with small children. In our opinion the house has everything to make a vacation successful for adults as well as children of all ages.

The jewell of the crown

  • 5 of 5

We had our annual family gathering in Vila Amani with the family members flying from Buenos Aires, New York, London and Geneva.The house is extremely spacious ,very tastefully decorated, with an enormous well kept garden surrounded by trees and a magnificient view of the sea. The pool area is very large and very well designed with lots of space to lounge and a shaded area with a bar with a fridge. Throughout the house you will find bookshelves full of hardcover books with literature for all tastes. The real added value were Rachel and Martin who not only were attentive to our needs but cooked the most delicious meals for us ...the beef wellington and the foie gras poele were to die for and the triple chocolate brownie was top notch. This was a delightfull treat.

Just arrived home from a two week stay at Villa Amani. We have

rented villas on the french riviera for many years and we would now put this one at the top of our list. It is a beautiful villa with just about

everything you could want. Martin & Rachel were excellent and dinner

in was consistently better than dinner out. Our thanks to the owner,

Laura, who made everything easy despite a very late booking.

Wonderful Villa Amani

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Villa Amani in August 2014. Wow, what a fabulous place. The villa is a lovely family home with the most amazing views, huge swimming pool and plenty of privacy. The beds were very comfortable and there was always plenty of hot water. Rachel and Martin were very friendly and helpful. We will definitely recommend this place and hope to return one day. Thank you Laura, we had a great holiday!

Wonderful Villa Amani

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at beautiful Villa Amani for one wonderful week. The place was just perfect for our great family. We were three generations, the oldest one 61, the youngest 11/2. All of us loved every minute of our stay. The house was spacious, tastefully decorated with a stunning view. Both the house as well as the garden and the pool was clean and well-maintained. The spacious outdoor area including the pool was perfect for playing and relaxing. Sue and Paul were so kind and helpful, they made delicious meals and kept both the house and garden/pool clean and tidy. The owner did absolutely provide very good customer service. The listing description made our expectations quite high, but they were more than fulfilled. It is a pleasure to recommend the Villa Amani to our friends and relatives as well as anyone else.
