Nice Villa in a peaceful location but be ready for the STING IN THE TAIL ON DEPARTURE !!
Beware as you view gallery that the owners have put together to sell their property to you, as all the home comforts & little things that matter had vanished on arrival
All 4 beautifully presented bedrooms stripped back to bare minimum & by that I mean basic uncomfortable beds with 1 white sheet per bed & the smallest of pillows, & a portable clothes rail & bedside table in each room. No throws for the beds, ornaments or wall pictures. Kitchen was well equipped & we made full use of 1 bin bag, 1 dishwash tablet & 1 tea towel
On arrival for 6 of us we had a hand towel each, no bathroom shower towels. We had to buy 6 bath & pool towels. We made full use of 1 toilet roll we were left for 6 of us for 7 days
Now the STING IN THE TAIL & we should have been more wary, other reviews on this & other sites have described the same scam that happened to us
On arrival the owners are very welcoming & Jacob spoke exceptional English. We handed over the full deposit in cash to cover any damages. He also spoke exceptional English when we had a lengthy conversation with him on Tuesday as he cleaned the pool
On leaving, after our one week stay, as we were completing the handover of the villa, he seemed to lose all fluency in the English language & resorted to act as an interpreter for his wife who allegedly speaks no English but hands out orders & demands to you as a holiday tenant through him. He was definitely extremely embarrassed & very uncomfortable with the situation but I'm guessing he's now very well versed in playing this part to stall & inhibit you from taking your deposit back in full
We were told that they didn't have cash & that deposit would be transferred back via bank transfer in 10 days, they would not commit or confirm that they were happy with the way we had left the villa
We had left the villa impeccably clean & tidy
I asked that deposit was paid back by bank transfer asap as any issues would have been identified by 5pm as new holiday makers arrived. He verbally agreed to have deposit transferred back in 3 - 4 days
TEN DAYS later & after many e mail requests, all of which have been ignored, I received 75% of my deposit into my bank account. I have since requested a reason & rationale for the reduction that has been made in 3 e mails over the last 7 days & still have not had the common decency from the owners of a reply. Renters beware you will be in for an unpleasant end to your holiday
C'est dommage de lire des critiques comme cela en sachant que l'etat de la cuisine américaine etait déplorable ainsi que la salle de bain.
- le plan de travail et la plaque de cuisson induction baignaient dans l'huile
- le sol de la cuisine était une vrai patinoire
- les meubles de cuisine étaient déguisés avec du ketchup.
- la vaisselle mouillé dans les meubles et certains mal lavé.
- les tables de repas non nettoyé
- Les toilettes non nettoyé
- la douche bouché (cheveux )et tout cela en une semaine de temps!
-Tous les sols non nettoyé
- les serviettes de bain trempé sur les lits.
Conclusions : Vu l'etat de la villa, les locataires n'ont jamais utilisé l'aspirateur, le balais, la serpillière et ni l'eponge.Nous avons facturé 100€ de frais de ménage.
Sur 2 saisons loué, 2 locataires irrespectueux. Nos autres clients ont récupéré la totalité de leur argent et avec grand plaisir de les accueillir dans notre villa.
Nice villa but disappointing owners
Rent this property at your own risk - be prepared to lose some of your deposit unfairly!
Happy with the stunning location and well presented house, but very let down by the owners on leaving.
Beautiful view with a drivable distance to local beautiful villages. Nearest supermarket is SuperU in Fayence.
The owners were welcoming on arrival and showed us around the property. However little important things were missing that we would have expected and their attitude changed on departure.
There was no soap in the toilet and no hand towels in the toilet or bathroom (shouldn't this be standard??!). No bath mat in the bathroom either.
The pool is not heated ... and the "hot tub" is not either! We had 26 degree weather but it was far too cold to get into which was disappointing considering we paid to hire a property with a pool. It was not advertised as unheated.
On checkout we had left the place neat and tidy. However the owner's wife demanded a substantial amount of Euros from our deposit for a cleaning fee, saying we had left it in an unacceptable state (there were a couple of specs on the bathroom mirror and a couple of missed breadcrumbs on the kitchen counter). We offered to clean the said items then and there, but the owners refused, saying it would take them hours (in fact it was the owners wife unprepared to negotiate; Jakob the husband seemed slightly uncomfortable with the situation). They left us no choice but to accept the fine, which in our opinion was very unreasonable considering it wouldn't have taken more than 10 minutes to wipe over a few surfaces again. What's more, the owner seemed to conveniently already have our deposit less the fine in his hand, leading us to believe they were going to find something wrong no matter what we had done.
Renters beware you may be in for an unpleasant end to your holiday.
Les critiques sont très facile pour cette locataire qui a laissé la villa non nettoyé.
Cela est bien expliqué à nos locataires qu'ils doivent laissé la villa propre.
Les critiques sur la piscine et le Jaccuzi sont déplorable. Ilsi sont chauffée avec une bache a bulles.
Cette locataire écrit que la température de l'eau de la piscine était à 26 degrés en sachant qu'elle a passé un séjour de 6 nuits au mois de Mai.
Sincèrement cela est autant abusé que le reste de ses écrits.
Sur 2 saisons loué que 2 locataires irrespectueux .
Nos autres clients ont été respectueux, récupéré la totalité de leur argent et avec grand plaisir de les accueillir a nouveau dans notre villa.
House and garden finished to a very high standard
Owners very available and helpful. Views beautiful and pool immaculate. Roads a little narrow and winding but the view makes it worthwhile. The towns of Fayence and Montauroux have everything you need. All helped by fabulous weather for three weeks.
Belle villa avec vue magnifique
Nous sommes restés 2 semaines dans cette belle villa. Le séjour s ouvrait sur une vue magnifique, la terrasse était également face à cette même vue. La maison est dans un endroit très calme, à quelques kms de Fayence pour les commodites et le marché.
La piscine est parfaite entourée de lavande.
4 chambres au calme.
Nous mettons juste un bémol sur la salle de bain du bas de la maison, ou la pression était très faible et le manque de plat pour la cuisine (nous étions 7).
En revanche les propriétaires ont été vraiment disponibles et très sympas.
The perfumeries of Grasse (25km), the lively market town of Fayence, Mons, Callian,Tourettes, Seillans (7 km), glass factories in Montauroux (10km) are close by. The famous town of St Paul de Vence and Vallauris, where Picasso lived and worked is also a short drive away and is full of wonderful pottery and ceramic work.
The property is ideally placed to enjoy both the villages of the interior and the attractions of the lively Cote d'Azur with Cannes, Antibes and Nice airport only 60 minutes drive. Activities on the doorstep include, golf , tennis, horse riding, cycling, paragliding, breathtaking mountain walks and skiing in the winter at nearby Greoliere (35 minutes drive away), Auron and Isola 2000.
Other Activities: Table tennis and pétanque on the terrace
Ski: Greolier ski station is located 45 Kms away, the famous Isola 2000 and Auron ski stations are located about 130 kms away from the Villa.
