Have just returned from our third, annual 2-week stay in Villa Kilauea and - greeting our lonely cat apart - am sorry to be home! Nathalie and Gerard are some of the kindest and most willing hosts I have ever come across (last year I re-strained a broken ankle whilst there and they helped out til the very last minute, including airport check-in with wheel-chair). Breakfast is a continually varying delight of home-made cakes/panna cotta/tartes, the pool is pristine with stunning views, the rooms are kept spotless and the Fragonard shampoos etc a delight. For those with children especially, the pool-room and possibility of eating snack-type lunch/dinner is a godsend, but Nathalie and Gerard's recommendations regarding restaurants are always spot on!
This year I didn't even bother to hire a car - the local bus is extremely punctual, trains to Monaco etc are very frequent and with young daughter we did not really want to be out too late. That said, you are in the town centre in 20 minutes, or up in the beautiful hills to St. Paul/Vence/Grasse/Tourette in not much more by car.
The maison d'hote concept is to be respected, and truly deserves respect! We are guests, albeit paying, in someone's home and, in this case, people who really make you feel at home. If your idea of a holiday is to wreak noisy and damaging havoc at midnight or not even greet your hosts in the morning, then please choose somewhere else!
