Wow what an amazing home.

  • 5 of 5

Thank you thank you Matthieu . We loved staying in your beautiful house.

The description of the property on the site is completley correct however it doesn't do it justice.

Everything exceeded our expectations.

Lovely pool, bigger in real life, full size ping pong. I won, happy about that. Bowls, tennis 30 mtrs away. 4 rackets balls etc. Snorkels, bats and balls. Badminton. Arm bands for babies. Everything literally everything you could need.

Can't recommend highly enough.

Locally there is loads to do, a little outside Nice, 15 mins on a bike or bus. But St Laurent du Var has its own hub. Lots of places to eat, drink and dance if you're brave. Some good shopping if you like clothes, cosmetics etc. Good for girls, equiv to John Lewis. Also water sports. We did a crazy air bed type ride. Fab fun.

Gorgeous place to relax.

Thanks Ewan and Harriet xx

We loved it all!

  • 5 of 5

We met Mathieu at his home earlier than the check-in to leave our luggage off.We returned after stocking up on shopping & he generously allowed us to stay in the outside area to feed the baby & put away our food.

When the house was cleaned Mathieu took us on a tour and we were so delighted with the eclectic mix of modern & antique. The huge flat screen tv was loved by all.

Bedrooms were ideal for us, ours as the grandparents was downstairs with a lovely en-suite. There were 2 further separate bedroom areas upstairs with another 4 beds & a bathroom or en-suite for each.

The kitchen had everything needed in equipment & utensils, a dishwasher, washing machine coffee & espresso machine.

Plenty of eating areas,lovely old formal type dining room in the house, also table in kitchen for breakfast. We did however use the large table under the vines & wisteria outside as the weather was beautiful. Pool was not "Olympic" size but was large enough for us & the temperature was perfect, the kids had a ball!

Sufficient loungers, deck chairs & tables. Table tennis table, bicycles etc everything that was needed & more for the pool.

All surrounded by pretty shrubs. A shower is also available.

This villa is so central that it is not really necessary to have a car. The train is about 20 mins walk the buses less. The promenade with lots of restaurants & coffee shops is a 10min walk away. We did have cars which were handy for supermarket shopping for 9. But the nearest large supermarket is about 5km away so it could be done by bus.

Cap 3000 is a large shopping centre within walking distance & Nice airport is only about a further 2 km.

It's just a perfect place if you want to be very central but in a quiet area.

Mr Mathieu Chapelet the owner is a very nice man & very approachable.

I couldn't recommend this villa enough!

Everyone says the French are grumpy but I found them to be very pleasant wherever I went

Very nice house, good standard. Great with the pool and the garden.

  • 5 of 5

We were twelve persons, staying for two terrific weeks. The bikes were good to have and the BBQ was awsome. The pool was a good complement for the afternoons to just relax and hang out. Also the tabletennis was great fun.

It was easy to deal with Mathieu, thanks a lot for two great weeks, everyone says hi (espacially Alice ;) )

Beautiful house great stay

  • 5 of 5

Amazing house in a great location with great facilities.

We were a group of 11 which was accommodated well, ideally I would say that the house would comfortably best suit a group size of 10.

Mathieu was very friendly and a genuinely great guy was very helpful and accommodating, even dropping off 3 of the group at the airport on our last day, Thank you for that.

It was a pleasure to stay in your home for our holiday, if we were to return to Nice we defiantly book to stay there again.

The only negative I could think of was the tiger mosquitos which we had to buy different repellent as the standard stuff did not work which we figured out after a few days and many bites, thank you again Mathieu for recommending a product that actually worked (5 in 5 repellent).

A delightful chic and stately villa with plenty of French character set in a lovely residential area

  • 5 of 5

What a fabulous location this beautiful villa is situated in. It is convenient for local shops (5 minutes walk away) and the same walk for bus transport to Nice , Monaco and Cannes. The property is clean, well maintained and is also just a ten minute walk away from the marina and promenade where there are plenty of bars and restaurants to suit anyone. In addition the "CAP 3000" shopping centre is only a 15 minute walk away and the new shops at the "Polygon Riviera" only 15 minutes by bus. The St.Laurent Du Var rail station is also nearby. My wife and I have been coming to this area for the past 5 years for short breaks but up until this stay have only stayed in local hotels. On this occasion as we were staying for 14 nights with 6 people in total so we decided that a villa would be more comfortable and this certainly proved to be the case. The accommodation is very spacious indoors and outdoors with the recent addition of a swimming pool outdoors which is a godsend in the warm weather.

Matthieu Chappelait the owner is very personable and a lovely guy all round. He was there to greet us and came by appointment to the villa after a week to tend to cleaning the swimming pool. He made himself available if anything cropped up but got that balance down to perfection of leaving you to enjoy your holiday but knowing you could get in touch if any issues cropped up which didn't occur in any case. Matthieu also took you around the villa and made sure you were ok with any devices you needed to operate in his absence after the intial greeting. The bikes and the table tennis in the outside area are a great outlet and we did make use of both facilities as well as the barbecue which was great fun !

I would recommend this villa and Matthieu the owner without hesitation. If you book this villa you will be assured of a great stay and a very attentive and caring owner who will go out of his way to make sure you enjoy your holiday. My wife and I are already discussing returning to stay at the villa with some of our family in the next few years !

Great, comfortable house, better than the pictures

  • 4 of 5

More than enough room for our group of six adults. Very quiet, never heard noise from nearby airport. Well equipped kitchen and one great bathroom (others fine, a bit small). Bikes needed a tune-up, but two of them worked well for my daughter and I to take them to old town. A bit of a distance for me (I'm mid-50s, not very fit), but no problem for my daughter. Table tennis was fun, unique feature. Nice backyard, very private. Good restaurants, bakery, butcher, grocery store within easy walking distance. Matthieu was very helpful (very little French-speaking skills within our group, his English skills are very good). Location is a bit out-of-the-way if you plan to spend your time near the Nice city center (think you need a car to stay here... but we didn't have time to experiment with public transportation) -- size and comfort of house make up for the distance. I would definitely recommend to family and friends.
