A spectacular property for a large family reunion, amazing pool and garden
John, the host, was helpful, friendly and accommodating.
Booking and checking in was easy and John was great when we changed our number of guests at short notice
The villa was more than big enough for everyone, with lots of bedrooms and bathrooms, a huge well equipped kitchen and laundry room. Everything we needed.
The garden and pool were bigger than we expected, with volleyball and water fountains in the pool, lots of loungers to soak up the sun and shaded areas outside to eat. The pool is perfect for children .
Everything was clean and well decorated, it looked new and not like other rentals we have used in the past.
It was a good location, quiet during the day, but close to golf, shopping and restaurants.
It was a very good vacation and i would stay here again, possible with more friends and family, there was so much room.
I would highly recommend a stay here and we might be coming to stay again soon
This property was totally amazing like a private resort. A perfect property for corporate or large family events, mine happened to be a corporate event that required separate bedrooms for my attendees The owner John was so resourceful and always available no.matter what time it was to assist with all the amenities. Super star owner and super star property. Will be planning my next event here in near future. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Thank you Eric for taking time from your very busy schedule to write such Great review. My best reward is to know that our VIP guests go home happy and with unforgettable memories. I appreciate your trust in our relentless commitment to deliver the best possible customer experience.
The BEST private estate in the greater Palm Springs
My family has been coming here since 2012, and we will definitely return next year. The owners are always available to answer any questions, and we felt at home while staying here. They completely remodeled and refurbished everything this spring, and we really enjoyed the new modern style. All appliances worked perfectly, and the new three dolphins fountain is simply spectacular. We highly recommend Chateau Florencia for large groups, because the Grand Room easily accommodates 70 people without anyone feeling crowded. The cleanliness was impeccable, and the attention to details makes this estate stand out above any other high-end properties we visited. We made reservations for the next three years since this is the best property we ever stayed in..
We had a great time at the Chateau Florencia
The home was perfect for our stay. We had everything we needed to have diverse activities for our large family group. The pool was lovely and we were able to heat it to our satisfaction. The kitchen was well equipped and it was great to have plenty of seating for everyone. John and his wife were most helpful and always available by phone to answer any questions we had.
Thank you for your kind words - we do our best to make all of our guests feel at home here, and we continue to enhance this one-of-a-kind luxury resort. We just completed installing a 30 ft x 20 ft gazebo and 9 putting holes on two putting green areas so our Pro-golfers can enjoy unlimited frustration anytime... We will add a steam sauna for 12 guests and more fun amenities. Now we have TWO ping pong tables and professional TORNADO foosball table for kids as well fo us older "kids at heart. John, Olina and team
It was AMAZING!
Beautiful home with amazing pool and amenities! Loved every minute of my stay!
Thank you for sharing your experience - we all do our best to make each guest feel special and at home at Chateau Florencia. It is deeply rewarding to receive positive review from the most demanding guests and our promise is to keep on improving every aspect of your stay. John
AWESOME RESORT - THE BEST EVER!
I have a large family that is used to 5 Diamond resorts and we were at awe! Chateau Florencia is simply AMAZING! Amenities are out of this world, the Grand Room easily accommodates 60 people and the Gourmet Kitchen has everything a Chef would want. We used all 4 refrigerators and 3 microwaves and nobody had to wait for food or drinks. Everyone had their choice of morning coffee, 4 Keurig brewers and a 50 cup percolator did the job superbly. There is even a 5 gallon bottled water hot and cold dispenser, and the Grand kitchen has an additional water filter so you never run out of fresh tasting water. The outdoor triple fireplace is magnificent and everyone enjoyed the nightly fire show. All tables, billiards, ping pong, foosball and air hockey are on casters so we were able to arrange everything as we liked. Their attention to details is almost unbelievable: perfectly clean everywhere, all lined was had steam ironed so it felt super soft, the European goose down pillows were fluffy and soothing, and there are plenty of throw pillows to support your back when sitting on a bed relaxing, John was very helpful, answered out texts with questions immediately, and we felt totally at home.
We are coming back and we strongly recommend Chateau Florencia to anyone that wants the best there is. Thank you for creating a second home for our family and friends John! Jeff & family
THANK YOU - OUR GOAL IS TO BE THE BEST THERE IS!
Greater Palm Springs recreational activities abound.
