We rented Villa de Maria with our grown-up children and had a fantastic week there. Jean Pierre, the owner, was charming and helpful and gave us good pointers on the neighbourhood. The house was extremely comfortable, with lots of space for us all, really clean and well looked after, although the stairs would be a bit of a problem for younger children, as they are very open. It is easy to walk to the shops, including the boulangerie for breakfast, and the beaches and we enjoyed ourselves immensely without ever getting in a car to drive anywhere. The train along the coast is close and easy to use.
We would really recommend this house if you are looking for a quieter spot on the riviera, and want to do a lot of lovely, chilled hanging out together. It was great and we loved it: we are already thinking about a return visit. more
