“Fantastic villa, wonderful views and excellent pool”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

My friends and I had not rented a villa before and we were a little apprehensive of the process. However, the villa's owner was very helpful and made us feel at ease.

The villa itself is in a wonderful location in the hills, not too far from Nice and Cannes. We rented a car from Nice airport and found our way there without any difficulty. On arrival we were pleasantly surprised with the views afforded from the patio and poolside.

The villa itself was clean and had everything you need (towels, plates, oven, BBQ, cutlery and saucepans etc), the beds were comfortable and there was plenty of seating space inside and out.

The pool is a real gem, an infinity pool overlooking the spectacular views.

The only downside noted by one friend was the lack of WIFI and that the television only had a SCART connection not HDMI. However, this did not bother him for too long as there was plenty to do. I found you had adequate mobile and data reception.

Well worth a visit, we have booked for next year!

“Highly Recommended”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

I have just returned from a stay at this amazing villa. The villa is very spacious and well equipped. There was 7 of us in total including my toddler and we still didn't feel crowded there. The pool wasn't quite warm enough to go in but we did brave it a few times and will be lovely in the summer. We had a couple of BBQs during our stay and was just so lovely to have so much outside space. You will definitely need a car to stay here as no where is walking distance. The villa was so peaceful as there's not many people close by. Everyone involved in hiring out the villa is so friendly and easy to talk to which is what you need in a foreign country. I would highly recommend this villa and will definitely be returning!

“I wish I could move here!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

I love this place, you just feel at peace, the views, a welcoming home, clean, fresh and a delight to stay in. The pool is lovely and clean, the villa is spacious and has everything you need. Eating outside looking at the view that greets you every day is my idea of heaven. Cannot wait to book up again next year.

“total escape”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

What a place.
Perfect surroundings. The views are spectacular. Accomodation exceptional, with amazing swimming pool.
What more do you want. Its perfect for getting away from it all. The local village has restaurants. There is a supermarket a few miles away. Wouldn't hesitate in recommending it to family and friends. Will be there again next year.

“Best villa we've ever booked”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We booked La Source almost a whole year before our arrival date so had a long time to wait. We weren't disappointed... it was easily the best villa we've ever stayed in. The views, as other reviewers mention, were amazing... I could have sat there all evening watching the sunsets. The weather was fab., meaning we could enjoy the lovely pool every day. Out children loved having a pool which was safe to jump in everywhere (there were no especially shallow areas but we could all touch the bottom using tip toes). The house is beautifully decorated and very well equipped and there was plenty of space for each of our three children to have a room each plus the mezzanine floor where we could catch up on UK news etc if we wanted.

We could buy same-day UK papers in Seillans before lunch time each day which was a treat! We loved the local villages, especially Fayence, which was about 5 to 10 minutes drive. We also went to the coast (Ste Maxime/St Raphael/Frejus) although, as the villa's pool was so lovely, we probably spent less time in the sea than we expected. We spent a full day in Nice which is always worthwhile but probably our best trips were to La Turbie and Monaco. La Turbie sits above Monaco with the most incredible views over Monaco and Monte Carlo. It took about 80 minutes easy motorway drive from the villa. We then took the hairy (incredibly hairy, but exciting!!) road down into Monaco (the same road where Princess Grace had her accident - known as Devil's Curse) and spent the most fantastic day looking around Monaco itself. We returned there later in the holiday to watch Monaco v Montpellier in a French football league game (miles cheaper than tickets for West Ham!!).

Loved dealing with such a helpful owner - Maria even sent us extra photos last year whilst we were deciding where to book. We cannot recommend this villa more strongly. Would love to visit again soon.

Thank you, Maria.

“What a fantastic Villa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013 for a stay in July 2013
1
person found this review helpful

What can I say? This is a brilliant spacious villa ... a real taste of heaven.
Set in stunning scenery overlooking rolling hills and trees, the location is brilliant ... the pictures in the preview don't do justice to how lovely it is.
The Villa is approx 2½ km outside Seillans up a fairly steep and windy road, so a car is essential, although the road is not very busy at all.
The pool is excellent (not heated) and ideal for cooling off on summer days.
We loved the outside (covered) dining area (partially shown on the RHS of photo 3) where we ate every day using the gas BBQ that was at the Villa. There is also a really well equipped kitchen.
All 4 bedrooms are of a good size with really comfy beds. 2 Bathrooms and 1 en-suite shower room were great too.
The owner has a local english guy who is on hand and happy to drop in if help is needed.
All in all, we we absolutely delighted with the Villa. The english owner was a pleasure to deal with and we would thoroughly recommend this Villa to anyone who loves the South of France, but likes to get away from the coast a bit

we stayed at la source as two families (4 adults and 3 children ages 10 to 14).the boys quickly chose to stay on the first floor with their own bathroom and televison,dvd area etc!on the ground floor there was a further two bedrooms with ample showering facilities etc.more than enough space to accomodate us all.the lounge area is nice and comfortable but we spent most of our time sat at the wonderful al fresco eating area and in the daytime relaxing by the pool with views of the surrounding provence hills! bliss! the kitchen was more than adequate to prepare a meal and had ample utensils,glassware etc.
out and about there are some lovely small villages,5mins right out of the villa is seillans where there are a couple of restaurants and a small but very well stocked supermarche,fresh produce and wine for as little as 3euro per bottle or a very nice one for around 6 euros,very reasonable we thought! left out of the villa and around a 10 to 15 min drive is bargemon which was our personal favourite for restaurants which were also great value for money.les tables rondes was superb a la carte food and la taverne brasserie was superb for pizzas etc.both very welcoming.kayaking and pedalos are around a 30 mins trip away and well worth the visit but this was as far as we ventured as it was difficult to drag ourselves away from the pool and view in our home for the week! all in all a superb place to holiday if you enjoy peace and tranquility,beautiful scenery and the feeling of being 'away from it all'.we will be returning.
