Client Comments

From the Guest Book ......... We had a wonderful time here with our family, an unforgettable experience. Thanks to the Manager and his team who looked after us very well. A memorable stay, everything was perfect .. we couldn’t have asked for more – M. Family. France/Hong Kong. August 2014 ”luxe, calme et volupté “; those were the words by Pablo Picasso in the 1920’s. Now they are our words for the Villa of 2014. Mr&Mrs S. Sweden. July 2014 Life is filled with pleasant surprises and this charming venue is one of them! To all the staff members who worked so diligently to ensure our comforts and pleasures, we offer our heartfelt Canadian , thanks and the wish you will all stay well… much fondness – Mr & Mrs T. Canada/Switzerland. July 2014 This spot is one of a kind, rthe Villa is truly one of the gems in Europe. We couldn’t have had a better family vacation.

July 2014 Our whole family have never had such an enjoyable and harmonious stay as we did in the Villa. This is thanks especially to the class and generosity of Manager and his team – who are competent, kind and agreeable. We are leaving with unforgettable memories – The K. family. Switzerland. August 2014 [Translated from French]
From the Guest book We have had the most fantastic week with all our children and eight grandchildren. The villa is amazing and the staffs are superb. Would love to come back one day. Guest from USA A must see . . . if you only stay in one villa this summer, make it this one – Guest from USA We have travelled the world – And I don’t believe we have ever had a better vacation – the service was Amazing! World Class!!”  Guest from UK This is an exceptional and a very special place on the edge of Atlantic Ocean bay. What is special about this place? The answer is simple – everything! The location, where ocean waters licking the stairs of the Villa are very warm and friendly. The sand is ideal for building beautiful castles by children and their parents. The air is so stunning so one can materially feel it. We were sleeping for more than 9 hours and could not get up as if we took sleeping drugs. The house has been restored by current owners with a great love and taste. Maintaining the traditional feel with a slight oriental touch in design it has all contemporary features for the comfort living. One can’t forget the warmth of the sun sitting on the dinner table on the open terrace. The garden, where you can not only enjoy the beauty of grass and trees, but can gather fresh vegetables for your lunch. The swimming pool with its gentle natural water has surprised all of us. Its moisturizing effect is easily compared with the best French body cream. Food – this is something what would be difficult to describe as none of the adjectives exist to express it. Maybe just one – simply stunning French cuisine. We had a pleasure of being taking care by three chefs and all of them are just unforgettable. And last, but not least the Villa team – very friendly, helpful, ready to assist at all times. Of course the pearl of the team is its manager without whom our stay could not be as memorable as it turned out. This is a place where you want to come again and again! Thank you all! Guest from Russia
