Customer Reviews

Excellent. Very roomy. The grounds are beautiful and the three eating areas very helpful. Morning on the patio or by the pool, and dinner in the BBQ area.
Enjoyed Most:
The view, the lovely pool and gardens. The great trees and the quiet. There was some construction going on the house in front of the pool but it did not bother us. The workers were courteous and we spoke in French.
Enjoyed Least:
Nothing really. We are used to having smaller kitchens in France and had expected it. The garbage system made no sense even though we used to the recycling requirement....but there was never a pickup from the town
Surrounding Area:
The town is not far... 20 min. on foot. 30 back since it is very uphill. The old town of Suquet is great with wonderful boutiques and open air market. The newer part of Cannes on the east side less likable....but that is a personal preference. Great location....we went to St. Paul de Vence with no problem. The park across the street is very lovely...great for strolling or jogging.
Nearby Events or Locales:
The old town of Cannes was within 20 Minutes on foot.
A good map would be helpful.

Truly enjoyed the experience. The three eating areas outside helped tremendously and we never used the formal inside dining room. The kids had plenty of room to play and the pool was very nice. The vegetation was extremely nice...trees, ponds...and privacy. The view of the sea and the balcony off the bedrooms upstairs was excellent.
Enjoyed Most:
The landscape, the privacy and the view.
Enjoyed Least:
We had problems with garbage pickup... but that is France.
Surrounding Area:
The Suquet. Parasailing. The beaches. The availability to shopping for groceries. The old part of Cannes with all its charm. Ste. Marguerite Island.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Cannes itself....I could walk to the old town...and the open air market in about 20 Minutes or less for a younger person.
Tips or Restaurants:
Not really. The kitchen was well equipped. Restaurants are plenty especially along the dock of the old port. .
We used a GPS...and had no problem. We did eventually find a nice easy route to the house from downtown.
Check In Out:
Sophie, the caretaker, was very hands-off. We agreed to leave the keys in the mailbox since we were leaving at five in the morning on the final Saturday.
