5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

After spending a few days in the hustle and bustle of Cannes, a week at La Colette was a real treat. Tucked away in the hills above Nice, the villa was secluded and relaxing, but at the same time, close to Nice, Vence and St Paul de Vence. Wonderful pool and pool area, high quality accommodation, great raised seating area... more

We managed to pack a lot into a week- trips to Cap d'Antibes, old Nice, St. Tropez, the Verdon gorges, an evening walk up to St, Jeannet village and our favourite by far, a day in St.Paul de Vence (get there early if you want to book lunch at the fabulous Colombe d'Or, where you can also view original paintings... more

We recently stayed in this beautiful villa and had a wonderful holiday. We booked at very short notice (having discovered we had been conned on the villa we thought we had booked) but we really got lucky. Camilla, the owner, was extremely helpful and a pleasure to deal with. The villa itself was very homely and well furnished and set... more

Additional Rate and Availability Information
Please feel free to ask as much information as you wish about the house, the holiday, the area and about secure payments (PAYPAL / CREDIT CARDS). A deposit of 30% will be required on booking / on return of the signed booking contract.

The 30% deposit is returnable in full if the cancellation is 8 weeks before the arrival date. After that I will of course try to accommodate any exceptional circumstances. But I recommend taking out a holiday insurance to cover life's unforeseeable events.

The 70% balance (plus the 500e security deposit - see below) is required to clear 8 weeks before your arrival date.

If your booking is made less that 8 weeks before your arrival date the full rental amount is required along with the REFUNDABLE security deposit of 500 Euro.

The Security Deposit is refundable on departure day via Euro cash/cheque or 1 week later via bank transfer. Deposit can also be paid in cash (500E or £400 or $600) on arrival and returned on departure.

How to get there
Airport: Nice: 9.9 mi
Railway: Saint Laurent du Var: 8.7 mi
Ferry: Nice / Marseille: 18.6 mi
Nice International airport (very clean and easy - you're usually smelling the sea air within minutes of landing) is only a 20 minute drive away from the villa. But do consider also Toulon and Marseille International airports. They're only 1.5- 2.15 hour drive away and will give you more flight options and deals. EasyJet, BA, BMI and Aerlingus and many other airlines all provide frequent flights to this area.

A taxi from Nice airport costs around 45-60 Euro. A professional taxi driver who knows the house can pick you up. Please call or email me to book this service.
