“Truly stunning”

From the moment we arrived at the Villa Minoustan we knew we had struck gold.

The Villa feels like a home not a rental, is beautifully appointed and has every amenity you could want.

In the kitchen unlike most rentals where you are lucky enough to find a tin opener and ample cutlery Minoustan has it all, from top notch food processors to cocktail shakers, pots and pans of every size. Cupboards full of crockery and utensils to meet every cooks need, serving dishes and platters.

The sitting room is large very comfortable with a huge range of DVD's and after dinner reading or games.

The beds are comfortable and there is good air conditioning/heating in every room.

Bathrooms are spotless, lots of towels and power showers that leave the user feeling spotless.

Excellent Wi-Fi.

Outside is equally lovely, a real sun trap, mature gardens, gorgeous pool, dining and seating areas and a Plancha Grill.

This is all lovely but it is the little extra personal touches that makes this villa stand out. Art work, charming furniture, scented candles, soap, tissues, local info and a very comprehensive guide book to how to use everything in the Villa and local amenities.

The Villa is within very easy reach of Nice, Cannes, the Italian border and many other places to explore.

Minoustan is the perfect
place to relax and we cannot recommend it more highly. We will be going back!

“Idyllic, perfect holiday”
Reviewed March 17, 2015 for a stay in May 2014

This is one of the loveliest villas you can imagine. Inside it is decorated exquisitely and kitted out with everything you could ever require. Outside it is idyllic, with a large eating area, sun loungers, pool, pretty gardens and beautiful views. There is an option to rent (and pay for) only half the villa, which just means closing off the downstairs bedrooms but leaving you with ample space at a reasonable price. The best thing of all, however, was the kind treatment by the owner. This was our first holiday abroad after having a baby, and we had a few questions in advance, all of which were answered fully and promptly by a reassuring and informative series of emails. There were also some lovely touches upon arrival - including the fact that the owner had bought a baby bath especially for our stay, after hearing from us that we were bringing our nine-month-old. The location is perfectly positioned for exploring Nice (15 min drive) and also Cannes and Monaco. It's close to the airport and picking up a car there is easy. You do need a car - even to get into the local village of Gattieres (which is lovely and has a great restaurant and well stocked supermarket). But you can get to the neighbourhood pizza take away by foot- just a couple of doors down! This sorted us out on our first night! We intend to revisit this villa and take the full house with some additional family or friends next time. We would recommend it to couples with babies like us but also it's definitely the kind of place we would have loved to have stayed before the baby too. A perfect mix of style and luxury and homeliness in a fantastic part of France.
