Excellent villa, with extremely well equipped kitchen, comfy lounge and superb bed. Views from the villas patio doors are amazing, Views from the balconies and terraces just exceptional. Also very private.Very helpful & proactive owner, really efficient manager. Felt general Domaine especially the swimming pool needed some TLC but didn't diminish our enjoyment. Highly recommend.

Management Response

Thank you very much for you kind words about our villa. This famous old Domaine was frequented by Matisse, Renoir Picasso etc in it's hey day. Sadly when the central hotel closed for business, it remained untouched for nearly 20 years. We have been renovating the domaine to get it back to its former glory for the past 10 years and this winter the pool is having a 35,000 euro facelift and completely re-tiled with new mosaics. We are happy that you enjoyed your stay and we really hope to see you back soon!

“A Beautiful Mediterranean Villa”
Reviewed 19 June 2012 for a stay in June 2012

We spent the first week of June 2012 at Olivade and could not have been happier. Besides the great weather, the Domaine du Piol development is impressive from first encounter and the grounds very well kept. It has a large swimming pool on a lower terrain level, and good views of the town of St Paul a short distance away. We even walked to St. Paul one evening. It's about 20 minutes away, some slight hills going, but all downhill back.

As for Olivade, it was perfect. The bedroom and living room are ample in size and the fully equipped kitchen more than met our needs for the nights we ate in. But the best was the patio outside, accessible through the living room or bedroom French doors. We had our breakfasts there every day and the sun rose over the roof line every morning at 8am bathing the table in warm early morning sunlight. And the view from the patio was exceptional, all the way to the Mediterranean.

The bathroom was roomy and an ingeniously designed shower stall, with movable glass walls, made the room even bigger.

The terrace below, accessible via a short flight of steps, is tranquil and surrounded by trees and plants that give it a tropical feel as well as a lot of privacy. We spent pleasant late afternoons laying on the chaise lounges, with the Western sun brilliantly warming us.

David, the owner, was also very accessible though he lives in Great Britain. We called him once for a question on the use of the cook top (called a 'hob' to the Brits) and he solved our question quickly. The interior of the house as well as the detailed PDF he supplied showed the care and attention he has lavished on it.

We would recommend Olivade without exception.
