A wonderful location for a family holiday
We just had 2 weeks at this villa in July. The villa is extremely comfortably and superbly specced. Many holiday villas lack so many of the basic essentials for every day living but everything was already here at your disposal. Derek and Gay, the owners were extremely warm and generous people. Nothing was ever too much of a problem, and they were really helpful making numerous recommendations for places to eat, and things to do in the local area.
The location of the villa was perfect, just a short walk down to central Valbonne, where you'll find a beautiful town square and narrow streets filled with boutiques and restaurants.
The pool was a good size and really well maintained and we spent numerous days relaxing by the pool, and cooking memorable family meals on the barbecue.
A brilliant holiday in a brilliant villa. Thank you so much. We hope to return another year.
Many thanks for your kind comments. We’d be delighted to welcome you and your family back for another stay in the future.

We had a lovely week in this house. Everything there that we could have wanted and needed. We felt immediately relaxed and at home. Derek and Gay could not have been more delightful, helpful and friendly. A perfect peaceful situation but not remote and just a few minutes from all of the nearby beautiful villages and towns in the area. I would definitely think about returning again soon.
Gay and I are really pleased that you enjoyed your stay at our villa. Thank you so much for your kind comments and helpful feedback. We hope to see you again soon. Warm Regards
Derek & Gay
Stunning house, beautiful location, great hosts
We spent a perfect week in this beautiful house. The pictures do not do the house justice. It is even more delightful than it looks and incredibly well equipped. We cooked at home most nights and there's not a utensil or appliance found wanting. Derek and Gaye are lovely hosts and have thought of everything. They are also charming and informative guides to the local area and couldn't be more helpful. The pool was checked and cleaned each morning in a friendly but unobtrusive way. The location is perfect peaceful, halfway between the beaches and the mountains and exactly 10 minutes walk from the charming village of Valbonne. It is just a short drive from numerous picturesque perched villages. The children loved it and we will definitely return. Thank you Derek and Gaye
We really enjoyed having you stay at out villa and are delighted that you had a wonderful holiday. Thank you for your feedback and appreciate your positive comments. Hope we see you and your family in 2018. You are always welcome.
De beste Provençaalse villa met zwembad
Al jaren huren wij voor een week een villa met zwembad in Zuid Frankrijk.
Deze villa op loopafstand van Valbonne is tot nu toe de allerbeste. Ruime kamers, een heerlijk zwembad, een geweldige keuken direct aan de veranda die uitkeek op het zwembad. Wij waren met 3 volwassenen en 4 pubers (leeftijd 15 t/m 19 jaar) en hebben ons uitstekend vermaakt. De ene in het zwembad en een ander onder de veranda in een licht briesje met een glaasje rosé.
De ligging is heel centraal. Naast Cannes en Monaco zijn Grasse, Antibes (zee) maar ook st Paul des Vence (bergen) prachtige plaatsen om te bezoeken.Wij zijn bij Pont sur Loup zelfs gaan Canyoningen. Een geweldige ervaring!
De eigenaren van de villa, Derek en Gay zijn gezellig en heel behulpzaam. Wij hebben genoten van de villa in Valbonne en kunnen terugkijken op een heerlijke vakantie.
Door de goede indeling van de Provençaalse villa is deze, wat ons betreft, zeer geschikt voor 2 tot 8 personen.
Gay and I were really pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay at our villa. We really hope you will return again and have a another great holiday. Best wishes to you and your family, from Derek & Gay in Valbonne
Perfect villa in lovely french village
This is a wonderful villa in a great location - private and quiet once through the villa gates, but only a short walk into the lovely village of Valbonne - good choice of restaurants & small shops to browse and great market on a Friday. If you don't fancy the walk, there is ample free parking available. What really makes this villa stand out from others we have stayed in is that it is extremely well furnished and equipped, even down to basic kitchen supplies, pool towels and mosquito repellants in the bedrooms. Derek and Gay are perfect hosts - very responsive to queries before our visit & saw them on a daily basis when they popped in to clean the pool etc - not intrusive, but good to be able to chat through where to visit etc. This really felt like a home from home - perfect for a relaxing holiday with many good places to visit within about half hours drive; Antibes, Nice & Cannes.
Gay and I are really pleased you and your family enjoyed your stay at our villa and hope you will come back for another holiday in 2017. Kind Regards Derek & Gay
Typical Provencal villa with everything you need
The villa is furnished in keeping with a Provencal style and is very comfortable and clean with everything you need for your stay. We were looking for a restful holiday and this property provided just that. We spent most of our time outside, dipping in and out of the pool and relaxing in the lovely surroundings. The outdoor sofas were great for sitting out in the evening and enjoying a glass of Rose and the dining table under cover was a welcome relief from the sun when needed.
There are plenty of good restaurants in the village along with all you need for self catering - boulangerie, delicatessen, butchers and greengrocers, all of exceptional quality. Although pricier than a supermarket, we felt it was worth the cost to enjoy such good quality and to be able to avoid using up our precious holiday time queuing in supermarkets. The Friday market in Valbonne is well worth a visit but go early as it gets very busy.
We did do one trip out to Antibes but much preferred Valbonne and were happy to get back!
Whilst we chose not to have a car for this trip and enjoyed the walk to and from the village, we recognised that the walk back may be challenging for some especially when you factor in the heat.
The owners were extremely helpful before and during our trip. Derek was kind enough to sort out our taxi rides from/to the airport and rejigged arrangements when our plane landed several hours later than planned - Thank you Derek. The pool was checked early each morning and the owners were only a text away if you needed anything but otherwise they were unobtrusive.
If you are looking for a relaxing break with good food and restaurants within walking distance, this is an excellent place to stay.
I am delighted that you enjoyed your stay at our villa, and thank you for the excellent feedback-much appreciated. I hope that you will come back to Valbonne again for another holiday. Kind Regards, Derek
