Guestbook comments from the owner

We spent the last 2 weeks of July 2014 at Les 3 Platanes. We were a couple at age 60+, our daughter and son with spouses and 2 grandchildren, ages 11 and 8. The process of renting was uncomplicated with good contact with the house owner per telephone and email, tidy contract terms and detailed information about the place, surroundings and rental conditions.



Our stay responded fully to our expectations. The house was large and beautiful, with four spacious bedrooms, one of which had a private bathroom, while the others shared a bathroom. The kitchen was fitted with all the equipment we required. There is a large living / dining room, but meals were taken out on the large and lovely patio, covered for periods with rain bursts. Finishing touch was for us, and especially for the kids, the pool, which was used from morning and until late night and dark, because inlaid lights. Also good to avoid chlorine odor as it was salt water in the pool. We had one technical questions about the pool during our stay and got immediate help from the local serviceman and it all worked fine.



Additionally, we should be mentioned that the garden is large enough to feel very private even though you can hear your neighbors. In practice, there is no view from neighboring properties.



The village, Bagnols-en-Foret lies about 15 min. walk away with some narrow roads, so we preferred to drive. Restaurants on the square, with a great atmosphere and ok food, not gourmet exactly. We did our shopping in a very good supermarket about 20 mins drive away, with very good selection of meats, spreads, fish etc.



Otherwise, we think it is a necessity to have a car to get around; we rented from Nice airport. The roads around Bagnols are generally narrow and winding, but it seems that people take that into account, and drive with consideration.



In conclusion we would say that we certainly can recommend a stay at Les 3 platanes.

Wonderful Holiday Villa

  • 5 of 5

We spent a fabulous week at this lovely very spacious and well equipped villa. It is more beautiful than the photographs suggest and set in large grounds in which children loved play...... whenever they were not in the immaculately kept pool. The owner and villa manager were very helpful in every way.
