We've just spent 10 very relaxing days staying the chalet, and I really can't fault the place at all. It was a lot more spacious than I was expecting, and very well equipped with everything we needed - cooking equipment, crockery, kettle etc. The only things we bought were a corkscrew and ant spray! There are two chalets, a slight distance apart, set under mature trees just a short distance from the main villa. It's a really peaceful setting, and there's plenty shade to keep the temperature down a bit. The pool is lovely - very big and we mostly had it to ourselves, a nice bonus (it's very deep though so not great for small children). Nice to have our own sun loungers. There's also a tennis court at the back of the property - really this place has all the facilities of a big resort but without the crowds, which is exactly what we were looking for.
In terms of location, a car is a must really, as there isn't really anywhere to walk to easily - the village is not far away but up a winding road without pavements. A very short drive away there's a Lidl, ideal for cheap self catering, and a couple of other supermarkets. Lake St Cassien is also in easy reach, and then it's not too far to Cannes and to the coast.
Overall, we spent a lovely 10 days exploring the area - this is a lovely central location with great facilities, and so peaceful, we'd definitely recommend it.
We spent two weeks here in August and had a great time. We are a family of 4 with two boys aged 8 & 6 and they were very happy with having a swimming pool just outside their door. We spent lots of time in the pool and relaxing by the pool, and barbecued in the evenings. Behnam is a great host. Location was great, 30 mins from Nice, similar distance to Antibes, and Cannes. Hypermarket 5 mins drive for all supplies, and several local Boulangeries for breakfast. Grasse is also only 30 mins. All in all a great holiday destination and accommodation and would not hesitate to recommend. We will be back :-)
This was our second vist and we loved it even more this time around. We arrived out of season at the end of June but the weather was great for us Brits who had had an awful Summer! Flying into Nice we hired a car and then drove for around 45 mins. Arriving late at night we were shown to Mimosa with our two sleeping children (aged 6 and 4) and were assured of the hospitality on offer. From the next morning on we couldn't ask for anything more. The hosts were amazing, the apartment clean and well equipped and to have a pool just outside was just brilliant.
In an area that is a 5 minute drive from an amazing lake which may as well be a beach, less than an hour from Cannes - we really couldn't fault it. We are actually considering using this property yearly for a long weekend break. fab, fab, fab
My family of 4 and I have just returned from a week long holiday in the Mimosa apartment.
The apartment and grounds are beautifully kept and contain everything necessary for a family self catering holiday [even including a cool bag for apicnic]. The beds were the most comfortable I have slept in away from home. The pool is large and wonderful, our children aged 7 and 11 spent hours perfecting their diving from the diving board. One word of caution would be that there is no real shallow end except for the entry steps,so non swimming children will need arm bands. There was no hassel reserving sun beds as they are for your enjoyment and come with comfortable mattresses and large shading umbrellas. There is also a pergola for outside dining which is great in summer. We used the tennis court every day. The location is also brilliant if you are looking for somewhere quiet, having said that it is also convientent , being 5 mins [drive] from a warm lake that you can swim in, 10 mins from the main A8 autoroute, 5 mins from a major supermarket and 2 mins from a boulangerie. It is probably 40 mins from the coast which for us was a bonus as the coast is over crowded and quite tatty in high season, as well as there being lots of jelly fish in the sea. Much better to be away from it and travel in for an evening to watch the world go by or mooch around looking at the super yatchs in Antibes. In summary then a comfortable apartment with great facilities and a beautiful pool area. The atmosphere is relaxed and family friendly, definately not for party animals but perfect for a relaxing break in a beautiful part of the world, the weather was also perfect, sunny every day. We will return!
We have been so impressed by this wonderful villa / apartment and the warm, welcoming nature of the owner, Adrienne, and her well-mannered, friendly children that we returned again this year! I cannot impress strongly enough how relaxing and beautiful the location of the villa is. The pool is wonderful, and the children played endlessly in it, as well as playing tennis, boules and wandering around the lovely grounds. The standard of accomodation is excellent, spacious, with everything a family would need for a 2 week stay, including air conditioning and a great barbeque. The property and pool are maintained to an excellent standard. There is loads to do in the surrounding area -- Lake St Cassien is perfect for a pedaloe ride, there are many fantastic villages and markets nearby (such as Fayence), 5 minutes drive to a big supermarket, plus it is easy to reach from Nice Airport.
The entire family had a fantastic time here (twice over!) and our two children (4 and 7) would gladly return year after year! High praise indeed!
The appartment was exactelly as described and we had a wonderful 10 days there. It is ideally located for trips to the coast or further inland and Adrienne is a very good host. We will be going back defenitely.
This exceptional Villa offers a perfect venue for a restful and relaxing holiday. Step out of the apartment directly onto the terrace where you can bask in the sun, swim, cool off in the shade, play tennis or boules and enjoy romantic outdoor dining under magnificent sunsets. The perched hilltop village of Montautoux has a weekly market, shops, restaurants and the area is famous for its connections with the Christian Dior dynasty. Lac de St
