Alexandre was very accommodating and friendly host. The villa is in a great spot and the kids loved the pool which was heated. Only downside is the photos are a bit old and do not really show condition of the villa which as another guest review mentioned, needs some TLC to really make it a super pad. Not sure where the "recently completely renovated " happened, I assumed this was as a result of some of the comments from 2015/2016 but I couldn't see anything recently done. All in all though I would go again as the comments are generally minor ones.
Vi var 9 vuxna (4 par + 1) som tillbringade en vecka i Mougins. Villan ligger trevligt till, på några minuters avstånd med bil till byn Mougnis och på promenadavstånd till trevligt bageri. Läget gör sig utmärkt för dagsutflykter till Antibes, Cannes, Nice, Monte Carlo mm mm. Villan har förutsättningarna att vara riktigt bra, med trevlig pool, grill och bra områden för umgänge i såväl sol som skugga. Dessvärre är huset i ganska dåligt skick, med ej fungerande toaletter, kranar, bubbelbad, lampor osv. Värden och hans ombud (Samir, som förefaller bo i bottenplan) gör vissa ansträngningar för att avhjälpa felen, men det känns ganska tafatt och grundproblemet kvarstår - villan måste underhållas bättre.
Alexandre and Samir are great hosts and very welcoming. The house is located in a lovely area nearby the beautiful village Mougins. A really good bakery is within walking distance as well. In general, the house is great but it is in desperate need for a bit of love. A lot of things were not working. From the little things such as a broken chair to the bigger ones such as the fact that the jacuzzi and outdoor kitchen could not be used (the barbecue worked though). The pool has really sharp edges so it is easy to get a cut. Even a pipe broke in one of the bathrooms resulting in a water leakage when we were there. The water had to be cut off for hours and we could therefore not eat dinner at home as planned. Samir was really helpful and solved the issue, but is is another example that the house needs revamping. In the description it says the house has air-condition. It has, however, for the bedrooms it is only air-con in one. So it was really hot during the nights. We bought a fan that we left, it helped a bit. With a bit of love, this house would be amazing. In its current condition it is a little rough around the edges. But Alexandre and Samir were lovely hosts.
