We holidayed as a large group and the villa was a fantastic place to stay because we could all get together around the pool or on the terrace - but also could find peaceful corners away from it all. The views are gorgeous over the med and a perfect backdrop to our bbq's everyday. The managers were always on hand if we wanted info on places to visit and made us very welcome. The villa is bright and tasteful and kept exceptionally clean. There is so much to do and see in the area that a week wasn't enough, especially as most of us just wanted to relax round the pool and gardens. Thank you, we'll be back!
I arrived by car (21 hours!! from London) with my wife and two young daughters to be warmly greeted by Elektra to a truly beautiful villa. I have stayed in SoF Villas every year since 2000 and the villa and Elektra were easily the best of the lot. Amazing Views and location wise its a quick 15 min drive (gobsmacking views of the WHOLE of Nice from the North) to be parked up at Vieux Nice and 7 mins max to be parked up at the beach at Villefranche.
Elektra was on hand to inform my wife about all of the gadgets at the villa and also to provide a rundown of the local amenities in Villefranche and Nice. Elektra's knowledge of the area was exceptional - the time and patience she showed to my two inquisitive and persistent daughters was both genuine and impressive.
The villa was immaculately clean - my wife is OCD about cleanliness and each year she usually spends hours cleaning upon arrival each year - not this time! All the gadgets in the Kitchen plus Wifi, etc all worked perfectly
The massive pool (large enough to do proper lengths) was perfectly heated so that we were able to jump in and out of the pool with no inhibitions. We enjoyed playing our music and lounging by the pool and looking down at the bay and the boats coming and going as well. Breakfast every morning on the terrace is a must!
Our biggest regret was not staying at the villa for more than a week- so next year my family and I hope to return for two weeks August!

Our stay at Villa Sunsong started good and ended up in a big disappointment. The lady manager who takes care of the house was very nice in the beginning but ended up by being unpleasant and unreliable. We were surprised by her unprofessional way of vilifying other guests while we seemed to her, as good ones. Her husband comes to clean the pool at evenings without any notice in advance. There is also a strong smell of mould in the lower apartment which makes the rental price totally unworthy. The managing couple's instructions about the cleaning and other issues are contradictory. Villa Sunsong is badly run and is a complete disappointment!
