We were so looking forward to getting to our villa having seen the pictures online. First impressions; the photos do not do it justice and the villa totally exceeded our expectations! We had the villa for 2 weeks, first week with another family of 4 including 2 children under 3 yrs old. There was ample room for us all, indoors and out. The layout of the villa enabled me to sleep til 9am while others were up and playing with the kids! The villa and pool are very child friendly, especially with the boules “court”, swing and slide. The kitchen equipment was of superior quality and crockery, cups and glasses were plentiful! We only ate outdoors due to the fabulous weather (& views) and had several areas to choose from – I think we counted 19 outdoor seats! The views are spectacular day and night and it was a struggle to leave the villa. Nevertheless, we had to venture out and see the local area which was just beautiful. We got by with speaking basic French, however were surprised at the number of locals who spoke English! We felt a million miles away from our normal life and were able to totally relax and enjoy every minute. Surprisingly, this villa is only 40 minutes from Nice airport! We did ponder one day – could we find fault or determine what would make the villa a better experience? We came up with absolutely nothing! We would not hesitate to recommend Villa Au Vieil Olivier, Montauroux/Province and Blackwood Villas. We will definitely return next year; hopefully for 3 weeks! The only reason we would try a different villa is if we require more bedrooms – all our friends now want to join us based on our amazing experience! And Blackwood Villas has so many to choose from that we will certainly be repeat customers. From booking the villa to being met on arrival was easy, personal and again, exceeded our expectations. Thank you to all and we will be back.
