Beautiful house and location
lovely house lovely views
The property is a very authentic French house, some quirky things and the owners have renovated it to a great standard. The gardens are really pretty and very secluded, the views from each area are lovely. All the bedrooms are really nice and very authentic, the kitchen is very rustic too.
The property managers are really nice and kind. For the House I can say that its really pretty. It is an authentic little french House.
Thank you so much for you nice review, we do appreciate. We're happy you liked the house, and wish you and family all the best.

A secluded gem
Beautiful house, well furnished and very comfy. Kitchen well supplied with everything we could possible need. Lovely grounds with a small pool which my granddaughters thoroughly enjoyed. We also enjoyed the games room. There was a shopping centre in La Trinite but we found the little market just a few yards up from the house very useful for fresh fruit and veg etc. The house was well placed for everything we wished to see, including Sanremo, Monaco, Eze and Falicon, as well as some amazing beaches. Slight downside was there was no WiFi which could possibly put some people off. Also a DVD player would be useful, particularly for playing children’s and/or family films in the evening. However, we really loved our stay in this beautiful house, thank you Fabienne.
Beautiful Old French House
The house is a beautiful,typical, old French house. The gardens were beautiful and tranquil. The pool was a nice addition as was the games room. However, beware of the road leading to the house - it is very twisty and narrow and takes nerves of steel to drive it each day! And a car is necessary as it’s a little off the beaten track. Also, don’t arrive too late on a Sunday evening as it is very difficult to find a shop that’s open so it would have been nice to have had a little welcome pack of coffee, bread, cheese, juice or something similar. Overall it was a very nice house.
Thank you for staying in our house and for writing this review. We're happy you enjoyed the house, the garden and the game room. It's true that part of the road turns a lot, as is often the case in the region. We are in the Alpes Maritimes : the Cote d'Azur is a mountain that plunges into the sea ! so we recommend careful driving, and remember that it is possible to honk in turns.
For shopping on Sunday evening there is a small market nearby, around the corner, which offers coffee, milk, farm eggs, crackers, jams, to help out. We would have gladly bought this for you, if you had informed us of this wish, and of your arrival at the end of the afternoon.
There is also a large shopping center in La Trinité, 2.5 km from the house, and a grocery store also open on Sundays, near the train station.
Comfortable house in a great location
There are lots of positives about this home. We loved the location -- close to Nice, Cap Ferrat, and Èze. It is in a very quiet, private setting, yet not far from the motorway. I enjoyed a dip in the pool at the end of a day of sightseeing (but not my wife -- still a little too cool!) There is an Auchan supermarket close by, and a very handy little fruit, vegetable, and egg stand right at the turn off to the house. The owners are very nice and helpful, and quick to respond both to the booking inquiry and to questions I had prior to our arrival. It is obvious that they have showered lots of love and care on the house and grounds. But there are a couple of negatives. First, the Homeaway page says that there is internet, but there is not. This was a surprise, but not too big a handicap, since next to Auchan is a Flunch café with free wifi. We went there for a little bit most afternoons, for a coffee or gelato. Still, I hope the owner will remove that item from the description. The other issue is harder to fix. The house, in particular the ground floor, has a residual wood smoke smell from the fires that were previously used for heating and cooking. For many people that might be pleasant, but for me, it set off a not-so-fun time of asthma and sinus problems. I don't want to make a big deal of it, because for most people it is not a problem. But if you have fragrance sensitivities, it is worth knowing.
Thank you for writing a review, we're glad you globally enjoyed the house, the garden and the surroundings during your 4 nights stay.
About the internet, it has been improved, we can now provide a full wifi service so that holiday makers can always keep in touch with their friends.
About fire smell, may be it could have come from the barbecue near the ground floor kitchen, as no wood heating is used in the hot season. We're sorry you were upset about this, and you think that's why you got ill.
Anyway thank you for mentioning, we'll take care, as we always do our best for our hosts.
best regards, the owner
