“Ideal base for your holiday”
Reviewed September 4, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We had a great time in France with this private and quiet villa the heart of our holiday.
The villa offers generous space and was very clean and had everything we needed for our stay along with a great pool to relax and take it easy when not venturing out and about.
We sat in the morning sun by the pool for breakfast and the sun stays for the day poolside.
We met Shravan and his family whilst we were there and they were very welcoming and helpful.
A car is important for this villa in our opinion and found our way around very quickly, shops and resturants are in 10 minutes drive in every direction and the choice is excellent.

Our son spent time searching the grounds and playing in a very safe environment which we were very happy with and would look to stay here again.

helpful and understanding tenants who appreciated the challenges of managing a large property from 1000 miles away. they even offered to roll up their sleeves and turned on the sprinklers during the peak of the summer . And they were not expecting a 5-star hotel experience. they were the type of tenants who are welcome back any time!

“A perfect, relaxing holiday home in idyllic setting”
Reviewed September 13, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We booked Xanadu for 7 nights end of August-beginning of Sept and it was exactly what we were looking for in a holiday home. A very homely, typical French villa with a gorgeous pool and the weather could not have been more perfect. The villa has everything you need for a relaxing break away from it all but close enough to all amenities, towns and villages. My husband and I were there for 7 nights but my son and his partner joined us for a few days and they were equally impressed. The caretaker could not have been more helpful and friendly- (spoke fantastic English)-was there if required but also completely respected our privacy. The village of Mougins has some amazing restaurants and the meals we had in L'amandier, La Guardinade and Moulin de Mougins were outstanding. We also used the outdoor barbecue a couple of nights and cooked some lovely locally bought fish and steak (great quality in the easily accessible Carrefour down the road). A great stay in Xanadu and would certainly consider using the villa again.

“Secluded oasis”
Reviewed August 16, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

I really recommend this villa. Not only is the location fantastic - 10mins from Cannes beach and 5 mins from the beautiful artistic village of Mougin, but the pool is so appealing that you almost don't need to go anywhere. It's unusual to have such a long pool and it's entirely private - with no houses overlooking. My family really enjoyed our stay and the owner was very helpful throughout. I will be booking again!

Hi Claire

Thank you for your generous review.

As you know, your family will always be welcome at our 'maison secondaire'! If only more guests were as appreciative of our home away from home.

Best regards,
Shravan

“A great place for a family holiday”
Reviewed July 3, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

A lovely villa with a private pool in a residential area near the Valmasque park.
The only downside is the absolute necessity to have a car ro get anywhere.
The location makes both a perfect and secure base for exploring the areA and a chill out haven.
Very helpful and accomodating owner too.

It goes without saying (but i will say it anyway!) that your family will always be very welcome at our home from home.

“Very relaxing”
Reviewed August 30, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Xanadu is a nice spacious bungalow with large swimming pool which our kids really enjoyed. The land is very big as well perfect for a dog to run around. The care taker was friendly and helpful. We still had a lot of privacy as we only met him when we wanted. Location was great 15 min to the beaches of Cannes but still in a quiet area. Perfect for a family holiday.
