From the House Book:

We loved our stay at the Villa, the only problem being that it is so relaxing here, it’s hard to summon he energy to leave the villa. The Team have been fantastic, welcoming and efficient, friendly and unobtrusive. We will be back! We returned in 2013 and had an even better time! Jacob, Gabriel, Raphael, Jane and Lucy, July 2012 and August 2013

We had a lovely time staying at the house. We can’t wait to come back, we really enjoy staying here. We loved the pool and going to the beach. James you are a star about taking us on the boat, we had a great time and the girls always did our rooms on time and were so helpful it was a real treat having you. You looked after us very well and the breakfast was really yummy. Thank you very much and we hope to see you next year!! The Getter Family, June 2013

The Team were so friendly and helpful. Especially James, who went far beyond our expectations and a true asset. Bal Family, July 2013


From the House Book:

What a gorgeous week in the Villa, it didn’t disappoint from the photos! We loved it all, the cinema, pool, hot tubs and jet skiing! Recommend the early boats in Bonifacio and early jet skis. Thanks so much Kat and Jacob, what a wonderful, wonderful treat to be so looked after! Lady Jennifer, August 2013

This was a holiday of a lifetime, and it really was! This amazing house; the rooms; the wonderful terrace and the pool and the cinema room. Luxury in every aspect. And the icing on the cake: Kat and Jacob providing a 5-star service that will linger in the memory for a long time. Wonderful, Kev, August 2013

A fantastic week in a fantastic villa! This was our first visit to Corsica and it really is a beautiful place. The walk through the mountain terrain to the cascade at l’ospedale is definitely worth doing. Kat and Jacob have been wonderful hosts, very helpful and friendly to chat to. The food has been fantastic too, Jacobs’ lemon soufflé is amazing!! Mary, Nick, Lucy and Finn, August 2013


Everything that was advertsied and more! This villa was everything that was advertised and more! Nothing prepared me for my first visit in 2013 and I was every bit as impressed this year. The home is immaculate, elegantly yet comfortably furnished and there is room for everyone to have some time to themselves - but lots of lovely conversation spots both poolside and in the house. Maryam is the ultimate manager, though she is rather more like a gracious hostess who welcomes her guests and then lets them get on with it! I cannot recommend Minou highly enough and am already planning the next visit - there are no drawbacks to the villa or to the neighbouring sights and villages. Enjoy!! RC, August 2015


From the Guest Book:

We had a fantastic week of laughing, making memories, touring fun places and eating/drinking FAR TOO MUCH amazing local products.  Thank you for sharing the Chateau and the village with us. Going home satisfied and relaxed a bientot.  Mike, Kirsten, Kiana, Aiden, Terry and Gerry, Pat, Norm, Renee, Wilson, Mike, Sandra, August 2013

Thank you for a lovely week at the Chateau.The whole family gathered here (7 adults, 4 children) to celebrate a 40th Wedding Anniversay and it was a trip to be remembered. The Chateau itself was the perfect space for a large group - lots of room to spread out but yet accommodated meals and time together.  The kids enjoyed the pool and the garden.We got croissants most mornings and had a lovely meal (wine & food pairings) at Le Bergerie. The rest of our dinners were prepared for us by the cooks we engaged and were absolutely great! We had fun exploring what the area had to offer and had a lovely time spending time with family. Many thanks for a wonderful week.The Egsgard family, March, 2013


Comments received by the Owner:-

We chose this apartment based on the lovely photographs. However in reality, it exceeded expectations, with its stunning views of the sea and stylish interior. It is in a charming old building with well kept gardens and pool. My husband and I with our two daughters enjoyed the idyllic setting close to great beaches, food markets and jet sking! August is a difficult month to move around, so getting the ferry to St. Tropez is ideal. Hope to return next time in September, but I could not recommend this property highly enough. Guest from Dublin, July 2013 

My family spent a week at this beautiful apartment. There was plenty of room for the 4 of us, which included my 11 year old daughter and 15 year old son. Sitting on the balcony and eating croissants in the morning watching the sun sparkle over the Mediterranean seemed like a scene out of a movie! We just kept smiling and asking, how did we get so lucky to find such a beautiful place? The apartment had everything we needed for our week and was conveniently located to the most beautiful beaches, lovely cafes and shopping in Ste Maxime. Day trips to Grimaud and St. Tropez were easy too. The week was so perfect, it still doesn't seem real. We will certainly be back! Alissa F, July 2013

We had such a perfect stay that we have already reserved a week next year. Waking up to blue skies over the bay, a view of the boats and coffee with a croissant was truly heavenly. The flat was clean and well equipped. The grounds are beautiful and the pool was a welcome alternative to the beach. The town of Ste. Maxime is charming with great restaurants and markets. Taking the boat over to St. Tropez for the day is a must. We recommend this property without reservation. Dan, Boston, Massachusetts, June 2013


From the House Book:

June 2013 Our wedding. Three perfect days in the most beautiful of settings, pool, beds, house, everything exceeded our expectations. Thank you.  Susan & Peter, San Francisco


From the Guest Book

The house, location, accommodations are super. Everything inside is perfect. But the best was to meet John! He is a very very nice person always ready to help us and for sure will become our friend for ever. We are very happy with our choice and strongly recommend Villa Eze for future guests. Carlos, January 2014

A magical, musical, memorable experience makes it difficult to find adequate words to relate our feelings about this sunny, enchanting wonderland.  It's the picturesque aura surrounding our stay that remains in our vision, and the kind generosity of the villa's owner that brings songs to our days.  We think the key element is the presence of John whose loving goodness radiates throughout his exceptional home, right into the hearts of those who dwell within.  Each day we looked forward to seeing his smiling, animated face, and on those rare occasions when he didn't come by, it felt like a 'loss.'  The Villa is immaculate, the closeby villages charming and the total ambiance one of a dreamy nature.  We joined our daughter and her family halfway through their stay, having one of the loveliest times of our life..........as we did last year at the same time. Walking onto the veranda early in the morning is a breathtaking experience, one which we repeated time and again with greater awe each time. It was a complete, joyful time. We are grateful for having been a part of this splendid area of the world, if only for a brief interlude.  Our sincere thank you.  Nancy and Ron Grigsby

We were met by the owner who invited us in, showed us around and then poured us wine and cooked our first meal while we relaxed. If only every experience in life excelled like this. The pictures of the Villa did not lie - It was actually more beautiful then i could have imagined. Perfect vacation, we will be back next year!!! Roger, August 2013

Thank you for a lovely week in you beautiful villa. Everything was as we expected on arrival and you made us feel very welcome. The villa was ideally situated for visits to Eze Village, Beaulieu, La Turbie and Monaco. We had 2 fabulous candle lit dinners with live music and great food. at Anjouna Beach restaurant just below us (thank you for the recommendation) The view from the villa was beautiful and you helpfulness made our week very relaxing. The pool is fantastic! Thank you again and hope to see you next year. Kind regards, A guest, 2012


We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The villa was great and the owners were very accommodating. We had a lot of young children with us and it suited our needs well. We would definitely recommend it. Regards, Jim, South France Villas Client, July 2013


From the Guest Book:

Our family of four (my husband and I and two single adult sons) stayed at the villa for 11 days at the beginning of October, 2013. Our stay there was perfect.  The villa was amazing.  It was comfortable, with all the amenities of home and had a beautiful view of the Mediterranean.  It was conveniently located, with a train station and bus stop at the bottom of the road.  John, our keyholder, was our first connection to our South France vacation and to say he enhanced our stay, would be an understatement.  I have not met a more accommodating and friendly person.  Nothing was too much trouble for him in making our stay memorable.  We will definitely recommend this amazing villa to our family and friends, and would love to visit again.  Thank you for sharing your lovely vacation home with us! We have spent an amazing 11 days in this mafnificent villa.  Our family enjoyed every moment in this magical location and hope to return for more pleasure.  Thank you, John, for your most generous hospitality.  You were always there to attend to our every need. Sincerely, The Ducharmes from Canada, October 2013 


A perfect place to rest and recover after 5 hard days of rowing 200km of the Canal du Midi.

It’s location was perfect… completely private, but close enough to Beziers for when we wanted to shop, or close enough to the smaller villages to bike to for our fresh croissants in the morning! The Owner was a pleasure to deal with, and her son very obliging. He arranged maxi taxis for the 14 of us to go to the night market at Pezenas. Thanks for your help in organising the Villa. It really was the perfect ending to celebrate our achievement on the Canal! Regards, Cindy, WakaTui Rowing, New Zealand, South France Villas Clients, August 2013


Had a very good time at La Grange. The house is lovely and large, and having large ensuites in all the bedrooms is very convenient. The facilities and utensils in the house are excellent. The outside area and pool are very well maintained and ideal for sitting outside and having a splash in the pool. Very handy having the grocers, bar and restaurants just up the road. Paul, September 2013


I meant to email a while back, just to say thank you for helping us arrange our holiday in Chateau Navarre, Montblanc in August this year, we had a superb time, the chateau was great, well equipped with a fantastic pool, it suited us very well in two houses. Please bear us in mind for any similar villas that fit 13 in July/August next year. Many thanks.  Fiona, July/August 2013


From the House Book from South France Villas Clients:-

...Had a wonderful hot and sunny week. House fabulous, short of nothing. Garden Swing very impressive and have instructions to build one in the garden at home for my wife.....we will return ... Mr and Mrs Fisher, August 2013

We have truly had a holiday, (even with two young children!)...Thank You. The house and surrounding area are wonderful, so homely, comfortable and beautiful. We have truly appreciated your attention to detail. Thank you again for arranging our sons birthday cake, it was delicious. Was an added bonus our son learned to swim this week too !  Thanks for everything - we'll definitely be back !!! Mr and Mrs Speed August 2013

...A great week, you really have thought of everything. Many thanks to you and your Property Manager. Ian, June 2013


We had a great  time and loved the villa. Places of interest we particularly enjoyed - Tourettes-sur-Loup, St Paul de Vence, Juan-les-Pins, Antibes. Vence is wonderful - great restaurants - drive in and leave your car at the swimming pool car park overnight as parking is free. Villa fantastic, the view is incredible, very peaceful and relaxing.  The Owners are very helpful - a fantastic holiday. Beware you will struggle to find parking in Juan-les-Pins and if you follow everybody else by parking on the street you will get ticketed! If going to the football in Monaco give yourself a good 3 hours to get there unless you are happy to pay €61 for half a match! It's such a nice place, the sea is warm, the water parks really fun and it is so sunny - I don't want to leave.  I hope everyone after us has a nice holiday.  Geraldine and party, August 2013, From the Guest Book


Henry's Bar in Vence is a friendly bar.  In Vence there are plenty of nice shops and the Old Town is lovely.  The No. 400 or No. 94 bus take you into Nice and is very cheap.  keep your eye on the times the shops open and close as we found the opening timings a little awkward.  We have had a lovely time and the villa is lovely and it is a very quiet area. Barbara and Brian, June 2013, From the Guest Book


Now that we are home, I long to be back there again”
Beautiful location in the hills outside Cannes which is a 20 minute drive away along mountain roads or motorway. Frejus a little closer. Local village is very peaceful with a chemist, some restaurants, a boulangerie and small grocery store. We usually shopped in Carrefour in Frejus. The house is approached by a narrow concrete road and is on a hillside. It is beautifully maintained and well organised house. The owners have thought of everything and helpful cards around the house guide you. The house is 3 bedded with 2 downstairs rooms that both open open out in to the pool and garden. Both are ensuite. The main living room also opens on to same. The house is itself is small, but perfectly adequate. Upstairs an ensuite bedroom with doors that open on to a small veranda, perfect for reading and star gazing. We spent hours and days in the pool. The gardens are not grassed (as is the norm in southern france) except at the side. There is a lovely 4 seater hammock, perfect for drinks in the garden. We didn't use the hot tub as it was hot enough outside. All mod cons included - nothing was missing - including full Sky TV and Wifi. Lovely food in the fridge on arrival thanks to Audrey who cares for the property. We had an amazing 2 weeks there and can not recommend it highly enough. Probably not suited to very small children who will wander as on a steep hillside or those of limited mobility, but for everyone else - magic. David, August 2013


From the Guest Book:

I have had the wonderful opportunity of visiting the South of France a few times over my life. This time, I went with two girlfriends to plan my wedding. My fiance and I decided to get married in France and were nervous about how to plan a French wedding from the States. My girlfriends and I decided to stay at the beautiful Villa Eze. This was the best decision I could have made! I am happy to say that I will now be having my wedding ceremony at the Villa Eze, it is that beautiful!  With the beautiful view, spacious villa, perfectly placed in every way! How could I not have my wedding here?! I will be having about 100 guests and will be getting married out on the veranda. The manager of the Villa Eze made me even more excited to get married. He offered incredible ideas, put me in contact with florists in the area, and helped me and my girlfriends map out the event from start to finish. He is one of the most genuine, helpful, kind, and at-your-service managers I have ever worked with. I will ONLY be staying at the Villa Eze during my trips to the South of France from now on.  I would suggest to anyone interested to stay at the Villa Eze. You will have the most incredible trip and have memories for a lifetime. Sandra, July 2013


Our one week stay at Maison Mimosa, Roquebrun in July was absolutely fantastic.  We were a two-family party of 9, with offspring ranging in age from 14 to 23, and parents of appropriate ages!  Everybody had a wonderful time. 

We are all very keen wild swimmers and with children who would want some or lots of independence, we had deliberately chosen a house right on a river and right in a village.  Good decision.  We had dreamy mornings and evenings cooling off and swimming in the crystal clear water of the River Orb against the gentle current right outside the house and also really enjoyed being in the really spacious at atmospheric house looking at the fantastic views of the bridge and mountains beyond and also of life on the other side of the river where happy people and their dogs spend the day mucking about in the river from the large natural river beach.   The river is safe and you can happily let children from 12 years and up paddle and swim on their own.

In the house there is an indoor pool and sauna plus games room with table tennis table and bar in the cellar and the children enjoyed the swimming pool as a novelty a couple of times but the weather was so good and the river so beautiful that it was very under used.  However, I can imagine that these facilities might be wonderful to have mid-winter or when the weather isn’t great. 

Roquebrun is as charming as any tourist website tells you but it feels properly lived-in and real and there is obviously a lot going on.  The Mediterranean Garden right above the village is beautiful and testament to a lively community as it is run mainly by volunteers and there was a really well attended village party on our last night.  We had a couple of great meals out in Roquebrun; Le Petit Nice does really good pizzas and  the relatively new, I think,  Cave de St Martin tapas bar (tapas bar as a description doesn’t really do the place justice I don’t think) was really superb and is making my mouth water just thinking about the meal we had there.  Everything fresh, everything melt-in-the-mouth delicious, every ingredient top quality and everything seasonal – plus great wine.   We came back to England enthused with the peach, tomato and basil salad we had there and  I  have served what I hope is a not-too-bad imitation of it four times since being home!  Both Le Petit Nice and the Cave St Martin have fantastically friendly and helpful staff and wonderful views and it was such a treat being able to walk to both restaurants in less than 5 minutes.     

Out of Roquebrun we spent a great day jumping into and swimming in the beautiful deep clearwater pools in the Gorge d’Heric and another day kayaking 10 and 15km back to Roquebrun., where some of our party saw an otter and all of us loved the scenery and peace and quiet (except when negotiating a rapid!).  Also spent a day at the Lac de Salagou, an amazingly atmospheric damn lake surrounded by martian-like red sand and some really interesting villages and natural rock formations.  The journey cross country to Salagou was beautiful too and a reminder of just how unpopulated and unspoilt this part of France is. 

Shopping was easy, with a village shop and a basic but comprehensive selection of fresh bread plus tinned and fresh food  and drinks in Roquebrun plus a fairly basic twice-weekly market,  and if you needed to do a big shop, the big street market (weekly?  twice-weekly?) and supermarket in St Chinian were a pleasant 15 minute drive away.   And of course there’s a vineyard round every corner……..    

We had to do an airport run to Montpelier near the end of the week and it was extremely hot so we combined it with a trip to the beach on La Corniche, just outside Sete.  We had a good swim in some great waves and it was perfect for a quick cool-off and to dip into the Med quickly.  Easy parking and a nice freshwater shower was available.  But I know there are better beaches in Languedoc and, given a choice, I wouldn’t have moved from the river Orb!

The South France Villas team were wonderful.  Helped with travel arrangements, gave great advice and were generally as helpful as they could possibly have been.  The fact that all their staff have lived in the area for a very long combined time really shows as they have brilliant local contacts and can answer almost any question you put to them.   Thankyou all very much for a wonderful holiday. Phyllida, South France Villas Client, 20-27 July 2013


We had indeed a very beautiful vacation at Fontaine de Domaine de Mas. It is a wonderful place with comfortable houses and a picturesque garden and facilities (pool, tennis, etc.)  No doubt that the kind and friendly attention and assistance of the administrator, did contribute a lot to the total picture. Josef, August 2013


From the Guest Book:

True to its name, this villa really is the accommodation with the best view and services of Eze. Tucked up into the hill, this effortlessly perfect villa is the ideal escape. I traveled to southern France from New York on vacation with friends and it was recommended to me that we stay in Eze (easily the town with the most charm in entirety of Cote d'Azur). And the villa was everything we had hoped for and more. We enjoyed waking up each morning with a view that took our breath away, the short and convenient walk to the beach, lounging by the infinity pool and cocktails on the patio. Each of the villa's sweeping views, from the master bedroom, to the living and the infinity pool are something to be marvelled. The villa is perfectly equipped with spacious and comfortable sleeping arrangements. There were only 3 of us but it could easily accommodate up to 7! The house manager was the LOVELIEST man, always willing to offer sage advice on the best places to go, what to see and where to get the perfect rotisserie chicken. The only downside of villa is that because the villa is so perfectly located, built and equipped, you may never leave and see the rest of the Cote d'Azur!  Thank you!! Maddie, August 2013
