As a British family of 3 staying for a week in August this year we can only say good things about our hosts Rosamaria and Mark. We were made to feel very welcome and looked after at all times.
Their house is homely and private, the rooms are situated underneath the house and access is separate and easy. There is a relaxed feeling around the household and it has a slightly bohemian and rustic feel. We used the pool extensively and Rosamaria prepared a lovely traditional french breakfast every morning poolside which was fantastic.
Local information is good and we were given some lovely places to visit by Rosamaria away from the busy 'La Plages' of Antibes and Cannes. She was so helpful with so many things, thank you again.
The neighbourhood is quiet in the main but the roads are narrow, so take care.
The village has all the essentials, supermarket, boulangerie, local pizzeria etc within 10 min walk or 2 min car journey. It is well situated, 30-35 mins to the coast, it was the height of season so it may be quicker at other times.
The local area is lovely with very interesting with beautiful places to visit within an easy 20 min car journey (Rosamaria will tell you).
All in all we had a lovely relaxed stay and enjoyed our location and our hosts warm hospitality, we would highly recommend it.
This was our first Air BnB experience. We had a lovely time and were made to feel very welcome and relaxed. Rosa Maria went the extra mile to make us feel comfortable and at home. The breakfasts were amazing out on the terrace and the pool was fantastic. We would recommend to everyone!
The Benoit-Castillo family were perfect airbnb hosts! Their property is so beautiful and serene I will not hesitate to stay again! I have already recommended my family to stay with them on their French travels.
I really enjoyed staying in this beautiful villa and this special village. When I arrived in Nice, I discovered that there was a strike and that the coach I planned to take to Le Rouret was not running. This should have taken about 45 minutes. There followed a six hour adventure to reach the villa, which ended up with the country bus service dropping me to the door! Rosa Maria was amazing, and she took me into the village where I could have a meal and then picked me up later. Next day she drove me up to Gourdon, a stunning little town perched on the edge of the mountain. We enjoyed the sight seeing together. The next day I was due to go into Cannes, and this day there was a train strike! So Rosa Maria took me to a supermarket to stock up before driving me into Cannes where I could connect up with the flat mate with whom I would spend time during the Film festival.
She went right out of her way to make sure I could still have a few days quiet time before the hurly burly of the Cannes Festival and nothing was too much trouble.
The moral of this story? Ideally go by car, because there are so many fantastic places to explore a short drive away. But it is possible to go without transport, as was proved by my experience, even though the wave of strikes meant I could not use the main lines of public transport. Thanks so much Rosa Maria, who is one of those people who really loves meeting guests from all over the world, and sharing her home with them. I felt I made a new friend. The family was also very nice and friendly. The breakfasts were terrific. I would love to go back!
Nice family and decent accomodation. House is situated in nice quite suburb relatively close to coastal towns Cannes and Antibes and cute small old ancient towns on near hills.
I enjoied to stay and would come again.
Bonjour Rosa Maria, merci à vous! pour votre accueil et votre gentillesse, nous étions vraiment bien chez vous.
Merci pour tout!
La maison est un paradis!!!
Le calme, la piscine, les fleurs, la jolie déco, les discussions, les rigolades, et surtout toutes les attentions adorables... on a été comblé!!
Et si proche, tous les si beaux villages, les plages, les points de vue magnifiques...
Un pur bonheur!
Merci mille fois!

About the Host, Benoist-Castillo
We are a French-Guatemalan family, leaving in the French Riviera since 2000.
Our house is like an Spanish Inn, where we like to share & exchange our lives with family and friends.
At present we are 2 at home, therefore we decided to open more our house to keep it lively, as our 3 daughters come from time to time back home.
Will be glad to welcome you anytime and enjoy this sunny/beautiful french area between mountains & sea, the famous 'FRENCH RIVIERA'.
