“Stunning, immaculate villa in a lovely setting”
Reviewed 30 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

We stayed here in August 2017 for one week and had a lovely time. The property is amazing, even better than the images shown here. The location is also terrific, with Sillans de Cascade a reasonable walk, and Salernes a short drive and having everything you would need.

The property is immaculately presented and beautifully furnished, very much the design and creation of the owners, John and Margot who have lovely taste. It is their home for much of the year and, during the periods they rent the house, they stay nearby and maintain the grounds every morning. The pool and terrace was always spotless and fresh figs were left out for us most mornings.

If there is a downside, it’s that their expectations are for guests to match their own exacting use of the house, rather than to use it as a commercially rented holiday home. We were a family group of six, we made good use of the house but left it in what we felt was a clean and tidy condition. We arrived home to a fairly lengthy email from John detailing our shortcomings and stressing the additional cleaning required to bring the property back to ‘their standard’, clearly the implication being this was a significant level above our own standard.

One of our group is a budding chef and had burnt a pan so John deducted £56 from our deposit, fair enough depending on your threshold between ‘wear & tear’ and ‘wilful damage’. We were also deducted £200 for apparently breaking the cover off the swimming pool alarm, something we stressed to John was absolutely not us. After me sending a photo of what looked like a broken cover on our arrival day, he rather begrudgingly refunded us half the amount.

Overall, this stunning property is quite rightly the pride and joy of the owners and, if you can look after it as such and follow the rules and instructions, you’ll have a great time here. If you prefer to actually relax, live in and make use of a holiday home, be prepared to lose some of your deposit (which actually might be worth it, the place really is lovely!).

Reading between the lines, we could be taken for the nightmare guests that every owner dreads - the reality is we’ve stayed in lovely properties all over Europe and never encountered this before. Clearly some owners and guests are just not meant for each other.
