Dave was a great help in assisting us locate the property. The property is in a wonderful scenic part of the country. We as a party of 6 (3 generations) had a great time. Weather could have been better but we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Utilised the outdoor BBQ regularly. Pool, only once, but it was great to sit at night and enjoy the ambience the floodlit pool provided.
Villa at Claviers
Lovely villa about 10 mins walk from small village, Claviers, which has a small shop, bakery and a few restaurants. The bigger village of Bargemon is a ten minute drive and is super. The villa has great views from the terrace of the wooded hills across the valley. The house is well equipped and the air conditioning in the bedrooms is especially luxurious Three bedrooms have en-suite, the fourth also has its own bathroom and shower room (one or two of the showers and outside sink tap need investigating to improve flow). The pool is a fairly standard size, clean, and big enough to amuse the kids, with a few inflatables available. The kitchen is compact and has every thing you need (fridge and dishwasher doors also need a bit of maintenance - August 2019). However, we cooked almost entirely on the BBQ, which is well designed with an air flow from underneath, so much better than those just on a hard brick surface. We used the pizza oven once (made our own pizzas from scratch) and it worked a treat - easy enough if you watch a few you tube how to videos. The wifi worked well. The house could do with a DVD for the kids - can't remember if this was in the spec but would be a good addition. In summary we had a fantastic stay - the location is rural, lovely and quiet, and the house had most of what we wanted for our holiday. A good solid 4.5 stars.

Nice villa for a family get together within walking distance of Claviers. Pizza oven and outdoor eating area added to a lovely family evening. Villa only sleeps 8 adults and has a loft for one young child.
Lovely villa with great outside space
We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Claviers; plenty of space inside and out for the four of us. Kindly, Dave had turned the central heating on, which given that the weather was a bit iffy, was extremely welcome. We also made use of the lovely (external) fire when outside dining (which even with aforementioned dodgy weather, was still possible upon occasion). We weren’t brave enough to use the pizza oven, but can imagine that it would be great to cook with, given a bit of time to experiment. The roads in and out of Claviers and surrounding village take a little getting used to (those hairpin bends are quite something), but we mastered them! The pool was super, although as Dave said, would be “fresh” (he was right), so dangling our feet was as far as it went. Sitting on the terrace watching the sun go down, looking at the super view, was our fave thing to do in the evenings (accompanied by a G&T or glass of wine obvs). There are lots of lovely villages and restaurants in the surrounding area, so I would recommend that everybody takes a tour around if they can. So, all in all, a great week away. And a super house to do it in. Thank you!
