“Fantastic property in a truly unique location”
Reviewed September 6, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We selected this property for an annual holiday for our group of 3 families with varying numbers of kids of varying ages (2 to 15) so we booked all 3 apartments.
The drive up from Nice was beautiful and once we got to Saint Andres, the sat nav took us over a small bridge that gave us cause for concern (we shouldn't have worried, the bridge has been there for years and can handle 9 tonnes). A little further up the lane and we came to the driveway. Again, a little concerning bouncing up the steep drive but by the end of the week the kids were enjoying the roller coaster type experience in the back of the car.
Once there, we were shown around by Nigel, the caretaker (a more helpful and considerate host you couldn't hope to wish for). All 3 apartments are well appointed and very comfortable. My only point of note is that for smaller kids and babies, there are some steps to navigate in the apartments.
The setting is beautiful beyond words with views over the beautiful Lac du Castillion and overlooked by the stunning Le Chalvet in the distance which seeing is a favourite of local paragliders.
There's ample space for the kids to explore and have adventures and the bbq/firepit is a great place for the adult to relax with a glass of something in the evening.

The chateau is remote and Saint Andres is not geared towards non-French speakers but as with anywhere in rural France, if you can manage 'bonjour' and 'merci', you'll find it goes a long way to getting yourself understood.

All in all, a superb place in a stunning location. Those with younger kids should note the steps in the apartments and the stone floors but other than that, I cannot recommend this place highly enough.

Management Response
Dec 26, 2012
Renter asked for a discount upon the booking which was provided. Once there, we did our utmost to satisfy this renter, however he was only interested in a further discounted rate and as such was looking for any small detail to complain. We suffered a power outage which tripped the pool heater, but he was unwilling to understand the exceptional circumstances.
This was the first and last complaint we got from our guests.
