Villas Manura are a terrace of three villas in Montauroux in the Haut Var region.
Montauroux is a wonderful location, convenient to Nice, Cannes, Nice Cote d'Azur, Gorges du Verdon, Northern Italy and Monaco (basically anywhere along the A8 motorway!).
Montauroux is one of the Hilltop Villages of the Var, but in my view Montauroux more genuine, more "lived in" and more authentic than the beautiful and famous example of TourTour.
I've been coming here for some years but this was my first time at Villas Manura.
We stayed in Bocca - a 2 bedroom villa/apartment in the middle of terrace.
There isn't much to say except that everything was perfect! Everything is newer and fresher than it actually appears in the photos. The villas are no more than a couple of years old. The setting is very quiet and the owners live nearby in the same plot but discreetly removed. The pool for the holiday villas is separate and for the renters. It felt utterly secure with access through a remote controlled gate.
There is nothing pretentious about this setting, everything is simply furnished and everything worked well. It was scrupulously clean.
If I am pushed to describe downsides to this rental, the only issue is that it is just less than 2km from the centre square of Montauroux and therefore viewa at the location are limited. However, you will require a car for the rental anyway, and the price is vastly more economical than other rentals in the area.
The television is multichannel satellite, but in French. However this doesn't matter as they have excellent Wifi in the apartment which is all included in the price.
Finally, in France in general it is my experience that disabled access or restricted mobility access can be more limited than other countries. While the rental information says that this rental is not suitable for disabled access, this access would be relatively simple, because one can access the apartments via the terrace using no more than one step onto the grass before coming to the apartments' gravelled terraces. I would say that Villas Manura have much better limited mobility via the terrace access than other similar rentals, though the main entrance is up a number of steps.
Finally Gisele and Marc were most kindly and helpful at all times.
I would be delighted to return!
