Great apartment very spacious excellent facilities fabulous views and location great for sightseeing
Great property but with drawbacks
My husband, twin sons (aged 17) and I stayed here for a week in July 2017. There were lots of good points. The apartment was exactly as pictured on the Owners Direct website, and we really liked it. The kitchen was well-equipped and everything worked. The individual air-con in each room was very welcome. The site is also lovely, with well-maintained grounds. The pool we used was great, and never too crowded - although there were no chairs / loungers.
Two statements in the property description were not correct at the time of our stay: there was only one swimming pool in use (the other being empty), and there was no Sky tv other than Sky news & music channels, and no tv in any of the bedrooms. Both appeared to be long-standing situations, so if these are important to you then you should check whether they have been remedied before booking.
The biggest drawback during our stay was that the owner does not live in France and relies upon a property management company. Their welcome was perfunctory: we were shown around the apartment before being presented with (and talked through) a list of rules and potential penalties (€20 for not emptying all bins before leaving; €20 for not fully emptying the dishwasher; an unspecified charge for checking out before 7am; €50 for not being ready to leave at an agreed check-out time; €40 for any call out not due to a fault in the apartment). As we had declined to pay €25 in advance for a welcome pack (because it included items such as rosé wine and mineral which we would not have used), there was absolutely no loo roll or soap. We did not feel we had been made particularly welcome.
Within 24 hours of our arrival, the toilet broke due to a problem with the plumbing (not due to us). The staff at the property management company were unavailable for 24 hours as they were at their daughter’s wedding. In their absence, we contacted the owner, who expressed ‘disappointment’ at the company’s lack of support, but was unable to help. Therefore, we had no working toilet for 24 hours, until the company arranged a plumber the next day; we then had to wait in for his visit.
Having returned home, our deposit was refunded in full within a fortnight. We requested a discount from the owner to reflect the above issues, but he chose not to respond.
In our opinion, this is a lovely property, but we would not want to stay there again while it is being overseen by the property management company, when there are so many other choices.
Great stay. Enjoyable place for the whole family.
Very welcoming and homely apartment. Excellent location, good facilities and 20 minutes from beach. Overall great stay. Highly recommend.
Bien accueillis, bonnes prestations.
Un peu loin de la plage, cependant.

It’s in the old town and its famous Suquet that we advise you to begin your visit to Cannes. You can get here from various directions by following the gentley sloping lanes intersected by picturesque stairways where the pedestrian is king. Things to see: the ramparts, musée de la Castre, square tower and the religious buildings. An exceptional view point over the town, port, Croisette, Iles de Lérins and over a large part of the bay of Cannes. On foot from the old town, the soul of Cannes, the Forville market and its ring of food shops (butchers, delicatessens, fishmongers bakers, wine merchants, etc.) will allow you to discover one of the aspects of a town eternally famous for its shopping. You will also enjoy the exceptional geographical location of Cannes which is ideal for short excursions to Grasse, Mougins and Antibes.
