About Celia and John Newgas
We are a family with three adult children We bought this apartment, as we wanted somewhere where could all stay together for holidays and later use when the weather is cold in the UK. We are a retired professional couple - an accountant and a CEO running Trade Associations.. We like food, relaxing and classical Music. Celia loves the beach side walks and to see fish being sold straight from boats in the morning.
Why Celia and John Newgas chose Golfe Juan
I used to come to the South of France as a child. The weather is lovely with bright sunlight. We wanted somewhere very close to the sea, but not actually on the sea-front. Golfe-Juan is small town, with mainly French residents. It is close to Cannes, Juan-les-Pins and Antibes so that there is much to see and do. When we chose the location it was essential for us that access was good and a car was not needed. The buses and local train allow easy visits all along the coast and into Italy. We chose la Desirade because it was in a quiet location and had large gardens and a private swimming pool. The people here are friendly.
What makes this Apartment unique
We can see the sea from our living room and terrace, and see mountains on the other side of the apartment. We liked la Desirade because it had generous space and grounds. As most of the residents are French and out at work , the grounds and pool are not crowded. Everyone is friendly and we all greet each other with a 'Bonjour'. Parking is easy as we have our own space and you will get a remote control for the gates. The areas is quiet and safe. Children can go down to the beach and teenagers explore on their own without worry. The gardens have a small olive grove for shade and bench seats set in the grass. There is even a boules pitch to play french style bowls. We bought the apartment with the intention to spend winters here, so we chose one which had plenty of space for us, and one bathroom for each bedroom so that our children and friends can feel comfortable. The apartment is furnished for comfort during a hot summer ... we have the usual things like internet and WifFi and UK TV, but also plentiful supplies of wine glasses and plates with a real separate kitchen so that feeding families is easy. One of the attractions of France is that that there are many places offering prepared food that just needs cooking or even warming for a super meal. Our favourite time is at 6 in the evening when we all sit on the terrace with nibbles and an aperitif. Try a Pineau de Charentes - our favourite and enjoy the sunset.
