About Sylvia and Jean Marc
We are a young couple already into its mi-term life Sylvia is a primary school teacher and I’m a shopkeeper Between the 2 of us, we have 4 children: Gérald, Olivia, Étienne and Baptiste who really make us happy and this villa became our secondary residence. We live a bit further, in the countryside, on the hills overlooking Cannes to Mouans-Sartoux and we often travel through the immense World in family or in couple. We have been living in La Tsavorite during more than 20 years so we can testify that it is pleasant to live in no matter the season. Today, what make us very proud are the commentaries of our nice guests that encourage us all the time to do our best to fully satisfy them and improved the way they are received. Our guests from all over the world honour us with their presence at the villa “La Tsavorite in Provence”.
Sylvia and Jean Marc purchased this Villa in 1987
Why Sylvia and Jean Marc chose Californie Pézou
Villa La Tsavorite that you will soon discover is a family house bought on 24 February 1987, birthday of my eldest child, Gérald. It is full of life and many good memories Now it is available for seasonal renting to balance our budget but also to reinvest the profits to offer more pleasure to our guests. This way of thinking allows us offer, no matter the season, very reasonable rental rates given the offered services that are below the market rates. In 2012, the following enhancements have been made: - 9x5 m architect pool that can be hated upon request during the mid-season. It is treated with salt (much less aggressive than chlorine) and has an ecological high performance heat pump. - The Mediterranean landscaped garden has been redesigned and equipped with drip watering system. - The 4 master bedrooms have been equipped before summer with reversible air-conditioning (cool air in summer and hot air in winter). - New curtains and curtain-rods - Modifications have been done to facilitate access to disabled persons: access ramp, medical bed and lift upon request. For example, this summer we received a person with tetraplegia during 4 weeks - Shutters have been sanded and restored - New fittings and furniture including a very beautiful outdoor table with mosaic top - New garden furniture (cosy Lafuma sunloungers) and pool accessories - New crockery and dishes Why this rental? Our guests will enjoy the same quality services (that always have been a pleasure to use) as us. Once a year in autumn, we invite friends and guest friends for a long “brainstorming” weekend during which we try to find improvements for next summer.
What makes this Villa unique
It is impossible to enumerate all the assets of our house because they are too numerous. However, the first asset would be the space, comfort and quietness that offers this house located in a huge park planted with very old trees, beautiful Lebanon cedars, palm trees, cypresses, cactus and other species that are typical of the Mediterranean. We can also talk about the brightness of this place, the large indoor spaces but also the typical quality of this house: the absolute quietness while being close to the town centre (less than 15 min on foot). It is really a pleasant countryside house to live in. Maybe not luxurious (there are others in the region, on the hills and the hills of Cannes) but comfortable and with a good atmosphere. After living together (with the house) for 25 years, the amazement remains intact, as if it was the first day, on the 6 July 1987 when we finally moved in. Real efforts and modifications have been made to facilitate access to disabled persons. In summer, we received on 2 occasions, persons with important and very important handicaps. Finally, we decided to rent it for a longer period (we escape a bit further, in the real countryside, on the hills of Cannes in Mouans-Sartoux). It allows us to offer very advantageous rates all year long, below the market rates, which makes this house adorable and affordable.

Wonderful Villa, wonderful hosts and wonderful memories!
We had a great time time at this beautiful villa. It was spotlessly clean, lovely fresh flowers in the main rooms and even wine in the refrigerator. Jean Marc and Sylvia went out their way to make our stay trouble free and comfortable. We were traveling with our grand daughter from Paris and Jean Marc was so nice and picked us up at the train station. Sylvia also took us to the grocery store so we could stock up on food for the baby. What thoughtful and kind people! This has been the best experience we have ever had at a home rental!
Let us go on with these wonderful words!!!
We are pleased to add: Wonderful Guests ++.
Be sure Gaye and Nick that everything we did was light for us.
We are always happy to meet different people with different cultures and moreover every time we were in the States we were enjoying the Americans (so different than we are) and to discover your beautiful continent.
We are very happy You enjoyed your stay at Villa la Tsavorite en Provence.
And if Sagan wants to come with Friends in few decades, we will try our very best to welcome Her.
And of course, of course You are welcome in the meantime.
A great thank to Nick to teach me everything we have to fix. It is very kind from him.
It was not troublesome at all and by chance we could do it at once.
When i am at home during winter time i try my best to maintain thoroughly the villa in order not to have big repairs when Guests are in during summer time.
We wish all of You the very best back-to-work for those who are working and a special kiss to Baby Sagan and be sure next time You are in Cannes we will help You to improve your french.
Merci beaucoup pour les excellents chocolats de Seattle (1rst time for us).
Merci beaucoup Gaye et Nick pour votre gentillesse et humanité.
Nous sommes heureux de Vous avoir rencontré.
Thank You very much Gaye and Nick for your kindness and mankind.
We are very happy to know You.
Sylvia and jean-marc.
Everything I was hoping for.
The house and the stay lived up to everything I could expect. The family loved it. We were a party of six all together. If I would have any remarks, it would be the fan on the pool heater that is placed near the pool. It is notable and there comes a point where It gets pretty annoying to have to listen to all day. And also you should know about the church bell on the church right next door is announcing it's presence every 30 minutes of the day( only during the day from morning till 10pm). I find it charming, but I can also sleep through an earthquake. But regardless of that, I will gladly recommend this place.
Thank You Anne and Nikolaj for your Review, moreover kind Review.
Thank You to have left la Tsavorite en Provence so clean.
We really hope You enjoy your stay in Cannes and we wish your rendezvous were profitable.
Thanks God, we are very OK with everything you Wrote and we are very happy You enjoy, as a whole, your stay at la Tsavorite en Provence.
Actually, You are a very lucky persons because if we go back few years ago, the Bellini's Chapel bell was ringing on a 24 hours basis (around the clock) and i have to negotiate hard with Mrs Lucette Bellini, the Daughter of the Bellini Maestro (world wide well known Painter) to obtain a night stop.
For the pool fan, U 're right too but I have only 2 solutions to propose :
either we cancel the pool heating but then the water pool can be a bit chilly in October (from early June to late September, no need to heat the pool).
Later in the fall, it depends where You are coming from (joke)....
You are able to accept the slight dull sound.
On an other hand, no ways to improve the slight sound as the fan has to be maximum 10 meters away from the pool.
Thank You to have warned us and in the future, i will inform our Kind Guests about this "noise" before their coming in order for them to choose in between the heated pool or the slight sound.
We look forward to hearing from You and again Merci.
Sylvia and jean-marc siegl.
It is a beautiful, comfortable and convinient house
When we arrived at the house, I was absolutely shocked by the beauty of the house, the garden and the pool. It is within a quiet private development. We could see the tower of Chapelle Berlini from our house, which rings beautifully. The house is so much more spacious than the pictures show. So is the garden. I think we could park at least 5 cars.
The house looks traditional from outside, but the landlord added a modern twist when they renovated it. The openness of the rooms and the beautiful and comfortable furniture are all so well presented. You have everything you need in the kitchen.
The supermarket and the local town centre are only 10 minutes walk away. The train station is about 15 minutes. The sea front is about 20 minutes walk.
We had BBQ almost every evening using the hug gas BBQ in the front garden by the pool. Having dinner on the big dinner table in front of the pool was the highlight of our day.
The weather was beautiful. The pool was very warm. We have a soak in the pool everyday.
The landlord and landlady are so friendly, they welcomed us when we arrived and saw us off when we left. We received several presents from them include the lovely croissants. They even provided travel books in several languages.
We will definitely go back again! The pictures definitely don't justify the beauty and luxuriousness of the property. Jean-Marc and Sylvia are so kind and friendly.
Thank You Yi for your kindness.
It was just a pleasure to guest all of You.
A kiss to your cute Daughter and to your Mother too and our regards to all other Members of your nice Family.
And thanx to your marvelous Review, we will go on trying our very best as we have ever did since we started to guest Hosts already 10 years ago this year.
Every new Guest remains for us a charming adventure and always so many things to learn from People like You.
About the pictures we posted, thank You to notice and write that "la Tsavorite en Provence" is even more beautiful than what You could watch on the pictures.
Nevertheless, we will try to post more realistic and truer photos in a near future.
A bientôt Yi et encore merci pour tout.
Votre appréciation, comme à chaque fois, nous va droit au cœur.
Merci aussi pour votre gentillesse qui nous rend la mission légère.
Nous allons essayer de mettre en ligne des photos moins réductrices et qui prennent mieux en compte les nombreux atouts offerts par la Tsavorite.
Et puis, si d'aventure, Vous souhaitez y revenir, Vous serez bien évidemment les Bienvenus.
Sylvia se joint à moi pour Vous remercier encore de toutes vos belles attentions et à tout bientôt, nous l'espérons.
Sylvia et j-marc siegl.
Lovely Villa, Great Owners and Fab Location
This is the fifth year we have stayed at this Villa and every time it is better. It feels like our home in Cannes once a year. Jean Marc and Sylvia ensure that there are fresh flowers around the house and it is always immaculately clean. The layout is great and area is peaceful but very close to the Croisette. There is a supermarket close by and the pool area is south facing so is always in the sun.
I would not hesitate to recommend this place. Happy Anniversary Jean Marc and Sylvia - I look forward to seeing you next year.
Thank You Anna,
as kind and smart as ever.
We adopt You if You want to (joke!!!).
Do not worry : we will try our best and ++ for your staying next year.
Please thank You to forward our regards to Darren and other AJG team Members too.
And thank you again for writing us our 1rst beautiful Review of 2017.
We look forward to meeting You one more time next year with great happiness.
And for me Anna, U're just like a Daughter as my eldest Son Gerald is 30 years old too.
Merci Anna pour toute ta gentillesse.
Chaque année c'est toujours avec le plus grand plaisir que nous retrouvons toute l’Équipe AJG et Vous faites toujours + partie de nos nombreuses traditions familiales et dates qui rythment notre année et nos vies.
Sylvia et j-marc.
We stayed in la Tsavorite in August for 10 days and absolutely loved it. The house is everything that we hoped for. Both Sylvia and Jean-Marc were fantastic hosts and welcomed us with fresh flowers and champagne. The pool was perfect for the children (our three year old son learned how to swim there!) as well as for the adults. The house has plenty of lovely areas to relax in and has everything one would need to feel at home. We used the grill almost everyday which was a real treat. We would recommend this house to anyone that wants to relax in luxurious surroundings and enjoy the charms of Cannes and the French Riviera. The house was perfectly clean and the pool and garden were well kept. The location allows one to walk to the Croisette and explore the surrounding areas. We can't wait to come back and enjoy the charms of la Tsavorite again!
What else... could say Mr Clooney.
i myself cannot add anything more.
Just a great thank You again to the truly european, peaceful and beautiful Family You are.
As always, we tried our very best with all our heart.
And congratulations to your 3 year old Son.
I will remember my whole life that A. starts his swimming career in our pool in Cannes.
Beautiful Souvenir for me too as i am a former swimmer and a lifeguard too.
Merci aussi de nous avoir fait rêver à l'occasion de cette belle rencontre.
En toute amitié,
Sylvia et j-marc.
Perfect host and an amazing villa
We are a party for 4 adults and 3 children (10,10,9)
This is our 2nd stay at La Tsavorite and returning again was just like arriving home. We were unpacked and settled around the pool within the hour!
Jean-Marc gave us the warmest of welcomes and left us to our holiday. In the fridge was a cold bottle of champers and water for the children; fresh flowers in the main living areas - It is these little touches that make the stay so special.
Our daily routine was walking downhill to the supermarket in the morning to collect the croissants / bread / lunch (and of course lots of wine) and then relaxing round the pool until early evening. We found a gem of the restaurant called Le Jardin Restaurant which was about 10 minutes walk from the villa. From the outside it looks like a small bar - but once you walk through to the main restaurant you can enjoy fantastic al-fresco dining. (we couldn't believe that we had walked past here daily last year and not visited!)
Throughout the stay Jean Marc was contactable by email and phone and nothing is too much trouble for this wonderful host. Everything is provided for your enjoyment and it makes for a very relaxing and carefree holiday.
We have no hesitation in recommending this property and look forward to returning again next year.
Dear L. and D.
thank You one more time for your kind words and we are both happy You enjoyed again your stay at LaTsavorite en Provence.
Thanks to People like You, when we are cleaning thoroughly the villa (because we do a lot by ourselves) we are thinking of People like You and it is enough to make us happy.
By the way, we are also happy to watch your boys growing "straight" year after year and that You can share with us our long term "Histoire d'Amour" (Love Story) with LaTsavorite en Provence.
Actually, we truly think LaTsavorite is a perfect house for Twin Families as Yours.
And again a great thankx L. to deal things as You do.
Enjoy your summer at Southend on Sea.
Your homeplace seems to be very quiet and charmful (i (jm) watched pictures of your seashore with ranks of nice Cabanons and i dreamt...).
Welcome to You again whenever You intend to visit Cannes.
We look forward to meeting all of You again with great pleasure.
Hugs, xoxo, regards,
Sylvia and jean-marc.
