“Stunning Retreat”
Reviewed October 5, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

person found this review helpful

Stayed at Villa Gardiette in September 2014 with a small group of Friends for a week. Whilst the Villa resides in a very peaceful area, which we loved, we were still able to jump in the car St Aygulf main town was 5mins drive away. We also visited Port Frejus, which was 10 mins away and St Raphael which was 15 mins away. So it's a great location if you do want to travel into town for dinner. There's the St Aygulf beach which was only a few mins drive away and also the lake (Lac Cassien) where we hired a couple of kayaks for a few hours, but there are other watersports available (which would be brilliant for the kids!).

Having said all that, it was actually quite hard to tear yourself away from the villa, as it has pretty much everything we needed, so we could gave easily have stayed in! We lived the fact it had some many areas to enjoy but our favourite was the rear patio where we enjoyed games of ping pong and BBQ's.

The views are stunning and best enjoyed from relaxing on a lilo in the infinity pool with a drink in your hand. The weather also never fails to disappoint.

The house also has Sky TV so we didn't miss any of the football! Bonus!

Rooms are ample sized, especially the master bedroom on the lower floor (which was huge) and all have air con, which is a must.

We hired a car for our stay and you'll definitely need one.

All in all, we had a fantastic time and will be going back some time in the future.

“Perfect stay, perfect setting, can't fault it”
Reviewed September 18, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We stayed from 11 to 25-Aug, the villa was perfect a real home from home. It had everything there we could possibly need and there was plenty to do in the surrounding area. We visited Roque Brune, old grimaud, St. Paul de vence. The owners were extremely helpful and gave us a lot if information before the stay.
The decor was very fitting with the area. Lots of places around for dinner but staying in and having a BBQ under the gazebo with the lovely twinkly lights was just as great. The views from the villa makes you feel very relaxed, it's very peaceful.
Cannot wait to visit again in the near future.

“Lovely spacious villa with excellent views and pool. Shame about electrical fault”
Reviewed September 1, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

people found this review helpful

We loved the quiet location, the wonderful views, the fantastic, warm swimming pool and the spacious villa. Our teenage sons loved the large TV with full SKY Sports package. Internet access was very good. Outdoors was well equipped with sun loungers, parasols and tables/chairs for relaxed meals. Unfortunately, we experienced an electrical fault that caused the electrics throughout the villa to trip intermittently, requiring numerous visits to the basement to re-set, including at night. The resulting loss of air conditioning at night, electric gate failures and swimming pool draining were frustrating.

Management Response
Sep 20, 2014
The family did encounter ongoing electrical issues during their week long stay & the problem was rectified asap, which turned out to be a fault with the swimming pool heating system, however, since early August, a number of people have holidayed at the Villa & there have been no further problems.

“Beautiful place! Great stay!”
Reviewed January 26, 2014 for a stay in December 2013

Our party of six had a wonderful time staying at the Villa Gardiette. The house is really beautiful, and its surroundings -- the yard and gardens, and the neighborhood -- are beautiful as well. All of the rooms were well-equipped and elegantly furnished, and we loved the stunning views of the ocean and hills. The owners and managers were responsive and helpful throughout. We highly recommend this rental.

“Beautiful & comfortable”
Reviewed July 26, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Amazing place! Location is very good for trips to cities like Nice, Cannes and Monaco. Its easy to get to the shops, restaurants and beach, but the car is necessary! The view from terrace and pool is beautiful! There's a nice garden full of colorful flowers, comfy poolside, two big tables to eat and BBQ.
