Enter the luxurious ambience of Villa Seburga...

A long impressive drive winds up to the property from the automatic gates, monitored from each living area by CCTV and operated by remote control.

The property cannot be seen from the road below or from above. The rear wall borders the Fondation Maeght museum, hidden behind trees. Villa Seburga is located on a quiet residential road leading to the top of a hill and a nature trail through woods beyond.

There is off-road parking immediately adjacent to the front entrance.

As you enter the Pool Terrace from the Car Park or Front Entrance, there is a breath taking swimming pool as the central feature. This heated infinity swimming pool is a full 12.5 metres in length, complete with a diving board and a water slide. Access to the swimming pool is just steps away from the Luxury Pool Apartment through French Windows. An infrared pool alarm system can be activated if required. The Pool is heated to 30C all year round.

At night, there is extensive ambient lighting, both throughout the garden and from inside the pool.

The Terraces offer views of the Mediterranean and the countryside of Provence-Cote d'Azur towards Cannes & Mougins by day. By night, you will see the distant twinkling lights of aircraft approaching Nice over the sea and the flashing light from the Cap d'Antibes Lighthouse.

Surrounded by 2,500 Sqm (27,000 sq. ft.) of lush vegetation, the Luxury Pool Apartment is a self-contained unit comprising the whole of the poolside level, comprising a total internal living area of 107 sqm with additional poolside terraces (120 sqm).

Words fall short to paint a suitable picture of this delightful place. A most luxurious apartment in an extremely desirable location on the French Riviera. The apartment has all the amenities that one could wish for and the owners are superb - helpful, accommodating and simply nice people. The pool is fantastic and should you wish to discover the area - well - the location is perfect. We had a great stay at Villa Seburga and it is as of now our place of choice when vacationing in the South of France.

Fantastic Water Temperature

By M. Hamilton, Voorburg, Netherlands on 24-Aug-2020

There isn't much to add to the previous reviews except to say, thank you Denise and Michael for a great week. To be able to walk straight from the house into the pool and not have to brace yourself for the water temperature was fantastic! The apartment was wonderful with real attention to detail and of course everything was spotless.

The Pool is Fantastic

By D, J-P & Family, Toulouse, France on 22-Aug-2020

An Amazing Place

By C, P & Family, Teddington, UK on 11-Aug-2020

This is an amazing place to stay and Michael and Denise made us feel so welcome with their warm, attentive hospitality. The villa was immaculately presented with everything one might need. The swimming pool is wonderful , warm , clean and you might want to spend lots of time in there. We wish to thank Michael and Denise for a wonderful holiday, we highly recommend this beautiful place and hope to be back there very soon.

By VJ, West Sussex, UK on 19-Jul-2020

Just got back from a fabulous stay at this villa. We were the first guests post corona shutdown and I was worried we were not going to be able to fly but Michael was great and reassuring that we would have a full refund if that happened. Really good contact throughout. The pool is just stunning and we spent many hours enjoining the water, especially as we filled it up with inflatables! The villa is clean and the beds are extremely comfortable. Air conditioning meant for a great nights sleep. Very hospitable hosts and all in all a lovely place to relax in. Big supermarket only 15mins drive away so we could stock up easily. We would stay here again.

We cannot say enough good things about this place or its hosts

By Melissa, Kentucky, USA on 04-Dec-2019

Loved the property! Everything about the villa is well-appointed. The hosts Denise and Michael were exceptionally helpful and anxious to answer any of our questions, concerns, etc. They are both very dedicated to seeing that their guests enjoy their stay, have everything they need, etc. We cannot say enough good things about this place or its hosts. We will definitely be returning to the area and when we do, our first choice for rentals will be here! Thank you Michael and Denise for a great start to our 2 weeks in France! Melissa, Christine and Lisa

Pool was 28-30° in October

By Petri, Finland on 22-Oct-2019

We were very happy with everything in Michael’s beautifull villa. Beds and bedclothes were really comfortable, kitchen was well equipped. Michael and Denise were very nice and helpfull. Location is good to explore French Riviera. I would recommend to have a car to make that much easier. The most important thing for us (with two kids) were the warm pool with nice view. The pool was big, clean and really warm. On our six day stay on October temperature of the pool was 28-30 Celsius! Day and night, such an pleasure. Michael and Denise, you have a amazing place, thank you very much to share it with others too.

Such an Amazing Experience!

By P & P, Toronto Canada & Hong Kong on 11-Oct-2019

We had an amazing experience staying over at Michael and Denise's place. The place is sparkling clean, amenities top notch, and the view from the infinity pool beautiful. We were a bit tired when we arrived the first day and ended up spending the evening at the villa - having a couple of drinks in the garden, overlooking the pool and it was such an amazing experience. The hosts have put in a lot of thought in the arrangements and it shows. We highly recommend.

We dined at the apartment in the evening as we didn’t want to leave!

By Noelene, Ballymena, NI, UK on 03-Oct-2019

We have just returned from a few days at the luxury pool apartment. The heated pool with the view is amazing. The house is well equipped and we dined at the apartment in the evening as we didn’t want to leave. The host lives upstairs and was very helpful, collecting us from the bottom of the hill with shopping bags! We used Uber taxis to travel into Nice and to the airport which worked well.

Wonderful villa, beautiful pool and perfect location!

By A & Family, Stockton-On-Tees, UK on 21-Aug-2019

We have just returned from a wonderful week staying at Villa Seburga. We had a lovely warm welcome from Michael and Denise and the attention to detail in the property was faultless with soap, shower gels, coffee pods and more provided, made even better with comfy beds, air conditioning and immaculate presentation.

We loved the character of the property and it's suberb layout. The fantastic infinity pool lent itself to some lovely memories sitting on the terrace for a meal or drink and then dipping into the gorgeous water and looking out at the amazing views. We also had fun on the slide and diving board and relaxation floating on the comfy pool loungers.

Villa Seburga is ideally placed to visit places such as Nice, taking the bus from the end of the road worked perfectly as well as being only 15 minutes drive from the airport! We also visited Monaco, Antibes, St.Tropez and Port Grimaud but one of the highlights was the short walk to the magical village of St.Paul de Vence for a drink and a meal.

We have enjoyed one of our best holidays yet and will definitely be back!!

Villa Seburga encompasses everything you dream about for a vacation on the Cote d'Azur

By Anita, Clearwater Florida, USA on 29-Jun-2019

We were met by Michael & his wife who gave us a full tour of Villa Seburga. We unpacked and got to soak in the beauty of the place.

From the moment we stepped in, we could tell that much love and care had been put into their home, down to the smallest of details.

The location, absolutely perfect - next to one of the most beautiful hill towns in Southern France: Saint Paul de Vence. Lovely place to explore and have an al fresco dinner. Don't miss Restaurant Le Tilleul and La Colombe d'Or. But also don't miss the chance of cooking your own dinner and eating al fresco at the villa. The view of the pool area, city and the azure sea in the distance all add to the dining experience!

Villa Seburga is located in a perfect spot - away from the hustle and bustle of Nice, Cannes and Monte Carlo and yet easily accessible to these locations (truly). A supermarket, boulangerie and great shopping mall are all a short drive down the hill.

We took the opportunity to see as much as we could see, and as many places as we could see - yes, I need a vacation from my vacation! During France's heatwave, we were happy to return to the villa which had air conditioning in the main living area and all of the bedrooms. We also made good use of the gorgeous swimming pool, thus visited Claude often :))

Reluctantly, we had to leave Villa Seburga and continue our journey to Provence. Without a doubt, we would like to return - but next time at a more leisurely pace! Depending on your itinerary for visiting the French Riviera, as there are so many places to see (we didn't even make it to Italy), I would urge you to consider 2 weeks at Michael & Denise's villa. You won't regret it!!

Thank you so much Michael & Denise for sharing Villa Seburga with us. Truly a memorable experience that will last a lifetime!! Xoxo Anita, Michael & the kids

Villa Seburga's pool really is heated - 29C/86F in May !

By Chris, Miami Beach, USA on 06-Jun-2019

Many pools in the south of France suggest they are heated. Michael's pool - which is huge - actually is heated!. In fact when we arrived the pools temp was 29c (86f) and after unpacking we took an early evening swim followed by an early morning swim...You get the idea ....Like the picture suggests the views here are amazing . We had the downstairs apartment which was perfect .Two sets of French doors lead you to the pool ,there are retractable awnings to shade you while having breakfast. The master bedroom is very large with a king size bed and and a queen size bed which is great for unpacking or sitting on etc . There's a second bedroom and a breakfast /TV room . The kitchen was spotless with a view over the pool . A/c worked well (very important mid june til end of august). also there are 2 bathrooms (very handy). All in all highly recommended .Thanks again Michael it was a pleasure meeting you !

“Perfect villa, lovely hosts and amazing view!”

By Georgia, Taunton, UK on 18-May-2019

Wow, this villa is just perfect in every way! It’s beautiful, peaceful, clean and is very close to St Paul de Vence which is gorgeous. The hosts were so lovely to us, always ensuring we had everything we needed. The whole week felt so luxurious and comfortable, and the pool was devine! We will almost definitely be returning here as we had a fantastic week, and our hosts were so friendly and kind. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, we felt so relaxed and cared for! I cannot express the lovely week we just had in this villa, everything was simply perfect! Thanks again to Michael and Denise for such a fantastic holiday and hope to see them again soon! :)

Villa Seburga

By Amanda, Edmonton, Canada on 08-May-2019

Great space, beautiful town nearby and gracious hosts.

5 of of 5


By Candace, British Columbia, Canada on 27-Apr-2019

Where does one even begin in describing what a wonderful home Michael and Denise have? In a word - spectacular! We have stayed in approximately 40 Airbnb and (Hidden by Airbnb) homes over the years and few have even come close to the level of excellence we experienced. The house is beautiful inside and out and no detail has been overlooked. The beds are very comfortable and the linens and towels are lovely. The kitchen has everything you need to prepare all your meals. The patio, gardens and pool are tranquil and relaxing. As far as cleanliness, the home is absolutely spotless. The pictures are very true to the location but what they lack is the warmth and kindness you will be greeted with when you meet the hosts. We just can’t say enough about these two incredibly kind people who go out of their way to make their guests’ experience wonderful. We highly recommend.

Just imagine being in the pool and looking at the sea !

By Alexis, Lausanne, Switzerland on 21-Apr-2019

The house of Denise and Michael is fantastic. Near to Saint-Paul-de-Vence it is particularly well located (30 minutes to Nice or Grasse by car, 20 minutes walk to Saint-Paul, etc.) and provides with such an amazing landscape ! Just imagine being in the pool and take a look at the see over there... For those who are willing to come when the weather is a little cold please note that when we were there the pool was 27 degrees :-) Also it goes without saying that we liked their hospitality. Of course puiblic transportation does not look so efficient so having a private car seems mandatory. This is ofter like this in France... Highly recommending the place, definitely !

Gorgeous Pool, many luxurious touches

By Skye, Seattle, USA on 10-Apr-2019

The outdoor living here was spectacular, with a gorgeous pool, view, and special light all day. The house has many luxurious touches, with original art, silk drapes, handmade “real” rugs, crisp sheets, and instantly hot water. The hosts were generous, exceptionally hospitable, and constantly available. You can live out your fantasy of having access to your wealthy aunt and uncle’s house in the South of France. The owners live upstairs and we found them affable, generous, and in good humor the entire week. We enjoyed having a car there, and we were given a remote for the electric gate at the end of the driveway. We would love to return.

An absolutely outstanding stay here at the villa!

By Georgia, Ascot, Australia on 18-Oct-2018

An absolutely outstanding stay here at the villa! From the get-go we had access to helpful information about the villa, directions and local places near the villa, essential when landing from Nice! The villa itself was stunning; amazing facilities, cleanliness and a spectacular (heated) infinity pool that was utilised extremely well! Michael was an extremely helpful and hospitable host who helped us with every query and graciously provided us with everything we needed to have a relaxed and enjoyable stay! Would 100% recommend this villa to anyone willing to have a relaxing and enjoyable stay in the French Rivera!

Stunning Villa St Paul de Vence

By Angela, Canterbury, UK on 24-Jun-2018

Our family have just spent a wonderful weeks holiday at the beautiful Villa Seburga close to the ramparts of the lovely Historic town St Paul de Vence
The villa is in a stunning location with glorious views over the valley out towards the coastal resort of Cagnes sur Mer!

Hope to one day to return again!

Simply Amazing

By Jane Cassin, Cheshire, UK on 24-May-2018

I could go on for hours about the stunning apartment , beautiful views, luxurious facilities, power shower in one bathroom and bath and shower in the other( l'occitane shampoos and shower gels and the fluffiest towels I have ever used) Fully equipped kitchen with quality appliances, fantastic location , the heated infinity pool with panoramic views is to absolutely die for, TV that picks up all the English channels ( hubby very happy watching his rugby) BBQ (gas and charcoal depending on your preference), the list I could go on about is endless as I keep thinking of something else as I type....but one of the best things about this place are the owners. From booking to leaving , Denise and Michael go out of their way to ensure you have a fantastic time, from assistance on best ways to hire cars to ensuring there is milk and something nice to drink in the fridge on arrival ( answering all my husbands emails and questions before we got there and believe me he can have a lot) every little thing we could think of needing was there.
I was very sad to leave but cant wait till we go back

Amazing place, Amazing people, we have already booked for next year and I would wholeheartedly recommend to anyone - you wont be disappointed!

Absolutely perfect place to spend your holiday

By Paul C, Lancashire, UK on 21-May-2018

This villa has to be seen to be believed. The view from the beautiful and heated infinity pool is spectacular, across the valley to the sea! We stayed in the pool apartment which has 2 large bedrooms and 2 luxury bathrooms which are very nice indeed along with kitchen and lounge/dining room and all the amenities you'd need. Can't fault this property, the owners go to great lengths to ensure your stay is as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. As a location, it is also an ideal base to explore the gorgeous medieval town of Saint-Paul-de Vence with its numerous art galleries and restaurants as well as Nice, Cannes and Monaco etc We will definitely be returning here!

Outstanding luxury villa - we will be back!

By Colonel MS, Hampshire UK on 06-Sep-2016

Having spent hours researching appropriate villas in the South of France for our extended family of ten we plumped for Villa Seburga - we were not disappointed! Our experience started after contacting the owner Michael - he responded by return with a detailed plan and description of the villa, room by room, and was most patient in answering all our questions. The scene was set and, as August approached, our excitement levels began to rise!

After a great journey down to Saint Paul - some by car and others by air into Nice - we arrived at the villa around 5pm and were met by the lovely Marzenna and her English husband Jerry. The gardens, pool and house were immaculate and exceeded our expectations. There followed supper at La Terrasse sur Saint Paul, recommended to us by Michael, within walking distance of the villa - excellent food and our holiday had begun.

The villa is extremely well appointed; beautifully and tastefully furnished; and extremely well equipped - the bathroom essentials were a very nice touch, as was the bottle of champagne in the fridge and the bunch of roses. Air conditioned throughout it was a real sanctuary for the non sun worshippers and made sleeping at night easy. However, the highlight had to be the heated infinity pool and terrace area. The diving board was a huge hit and the children perfected their diving skills - the end of the holiday diving competition was fierce! We look forward to the new water slide when we return!

Day to day living was easy, with E.Leclerc and a patisserie within a short drive. For those wishing to go further afield, Monaco and Nice are great trips out.

As we left on the final morning our grandson Charlie said: "that was my perfect holiday" and from a very cool 11 year old boy, that is accolade indeed!

Exquisite South of France Vacation

By Penelope G, New York USA on 22-Aug-2016

We stayed at Villa Seburga from July 30-August 20, 2016.
It was two vacations in one! The first part was with our children and grandchildren and the second part was with good friends.
It was perfect for both groups. A sprawling, comfortable villa and roomy enough for all of us! 9-11 people all fit without any crowding.
The views were amazing from almost anywhere in the villa. We spent most of our time in and around the exquisite pool/pool area. There were comfortable lounges and floats and other pool toys for the children. Everyone adored the large infinity pool! Velvety warm water overlooking magnificent land and sea views.
We had breakfast, lunch and dinners in the villa and the fully equipped kitchens were a pleasure to cook in as well as the charcoal grill poolside. We shopped at a large nearby market and local farmers markets.
The bedrooms were large with en suite bathrooms and very comfortable beds.
Our master bedroom/bathroom was a true haven with dreamlike views. The weather was lovely but the air conditioning was great for the couple of humid nights we had.
We walked to Saint Paul de Vence many times which allowed us to eat all the fresh delicious cuisine the area offers. We drove to a number of surrounding towns for visits and beach days and excellent dinners! Oh, the boulangeries and patisseries! We loved the nearby Macht Foundation and Matisse Chapel. We enjoyed Vence, Saint Paul de Vence, Nice, Grasse, Monte Carlo, Cannes, Antibes, Villefranche and the list goes on. Great location from which to drive and train everywhere! And then we got to come home to our gorgeous, fun and easy living villa!
Our lovely, warm and hardworking housekeeper, Marzenna, kept things in tip top shape 2x a week and there was washer and dryer and racks to hang wet swimsuits. Beautiful spacious main floor living and dining room and large terraces for outdoor dining. Tons of movies to watch and many books to read. Everything anyone can need for a perfect stay.
Thank-you Michael and Denise-we truly wish to return and do it all over again!

“Luxe méditerranéen”

By ML, Quebec Canada on 05-Jun-2016

La Résidence du Jardin de la Villa Seburga se trouve dans une luxueuse villa située dans les collines luxuriantes de St-Paul-de-Vence et à distance de marche du vieux village fortifié.

Nous y avons séjourné pendant une semaine avec un couple d'amis. La résidence du jardin offrait un confort inégalé et tout les équipements nécessaires (incluant cuisinière, microondes, lave-vaisselles, BBQ et salle de lavage) pour se sentir chez soi pendant notre séjour. La villa est bien aménagée et décorée avec goût.

La résidence du jardin est au 1er niveau de la villa, avec deux grandes chambres fonctionnels et leur salle de bain respectives, idéale pour une famille ou un couple d'amis qui désirent partager un bon moment dans un environnement magnifique. La chambre principale, le salon et la salle à manger donnent directement sur la terrasse ce qui donne beaucoup d'espace de vie.

La propriété offre une vue spectaculaire de la chambre principale et de la gigantesque terrasse avec superbe piscine à débordement. C'est l'endroit idéal pour relaxer, décompresser et se reposer entre les excursions sur la côte d'azur, de Monaco, à Saint-Tropez en passant pas Aix, Grasse, Antibes, Cannes et Nice.

En plus de St-Paul-de-Vence à proximité, l'on trouve tout près également un splendide centre commercial (Polygone), d'excellents restaurants (pour tout les budgets...) et des épiceries (E. Leclerc).
Les propriétaires sont sympathiques et extrêmement serviables. La gouvernante qui passe deux fois pendant la semaine, est gentille, efficace et discrète.
La Residence du Jardin de la Villa Seburga est un superbe endroit pour résider pendant les vacances sur la côte d'azur! Nous y reviendrons certainement!

By GlasgowPo, Scotland UK on 27-Aug-2015

Three generations of my family spent a glorious week in Villa Seburga. We all agreed it was the best holiday ever. The villa was luxurious and catered for everything we needed to make our holiday very special. Location was superb and the accommodation was perfect for 8 adults and 2 four year olds. We have spent many holidays in this area and did not feel the need to go travelling. It would have been hard to tear ourselves away from the superb infinity pool and numerous sunny terraces. It is going to be very hard to find our next holiday property after staying here. The bar has been set very high. We received the warmest of welcomes from Marzenna and Gerry and nothing was too much trouble for them. I cannot recommend this villa highly enough. It is just perfect.

One of the best villas and locations in the South of France

By AndyWaugh, Edinburgh UK on 14-Jun-2015

We have just returned to UK after one week in Villa Seburga having taken the whole premises. We were 10 adult friends and had planned to breakfast on coffee and patisseries and eat out in the evenings. However, the villa is in such a stunning location and the pool is so inviting that we changed our eating plans and enjoyed salads and BBQs by the pool or on the mid-level terrace most lunch times and evenings.
This is a brilliantly planned and presented villa with stunning views over Cote D'Azure and out to Cap Antibes. In addition, every last little detail has been thought of from I-pod docking stations to orange squeezers and BBQ charcoal to Nespresso coffee pods! Well worth a visit although I am loath to recommend it since it might be booked up the next time we want to visit!
Michael, the owner, could not have been more helpful prior to booking. He sent a full description of the facilities, rooms, layout and other details of the local amenities so that it made our holiday planning and booking very easy. Also a big thank you to Marzenna and Jerry for looking after the villa during our stay and for the lovely welcome we got from Marzenna on arrival.

Our best rental ever

By CharronO, San Francisco USA on 10-Jun-2015

Thank you Denise and Michael for the use of your beautiful home. It was more than we hoped for...more than the pictures ever lead us to expect!

The amenities (from knowing we would not run out of toilet paper, dish soap, the water toys, towels, bedding, IPod speakers, and on and on) were so much more than we have ever had at any other rental. How clean everything was was a treat.

Villa Seburga was in the perfect place for our 3 generations to visit this wonderful area of France and have a quiet calm place to return to each day to relax.

Jacqui, the chef, cooked 6 dinners for us in the villa. Each meal was perfect!! All of what Jacqui made was perfectly cooked. Each meal had either a salad or vegetable or both. Every one of us thought each meal was fantastic. We oohed and aahed over each dish. So 7 people liked each and every dish!! The cost of a chef and dining at Villa Seburga was still less than we paid out at any restaurant. More than that, enjoying great meals in your lovely house was more than worth it to all of us!!

Again thank you so much for the use of your wonderful home.

Five Star Luxury in a Private Villa

By Professor Leech, Melbourne Australia on 06-Jun-2015

What a wonderful experience! This property is truly 5 star luxury in every respect. Nestled in the hills above Nice, within walking distance (albeit a bit steep in places if you decide to walk) of the lovely village of St Paul de Vence, this remarkable villa has everything that the discerning traveller could possibly want. The owners (Michael and Denise) are such lovely, hospitable people and provide everything you could want for when travelling. Very few villas in our experience have such luxurious fittings and provisions; no need to provide toiletries, dishwashing/laundry detergent, it is all provided; and a housekeeper comes in twice a week to do the cleaning. The fully equipped kitchen has everything you need, spotlessly clean with Miele appliances and Portmeirion crockery. If you don’t want to eat in, there is an excellent restaurant (l’Olivier Rouge) on the corner of the main road up to the villa; or in the village close by. The private heated infinity–edge swimming pool is just superb, the view across the valley is remarkable and the gardens are beautiful. We had a lovely week here and were very sad to leave. You just do not normally find this high standard of luxury in a rented villa; it was more like being in a 5 star resort but in a private and peaceful villa. Highly recommended for a lovely holiday.

Perfection - Our Best Holiday Ever!

By Frances T, Farnham UK on 26-Nov-2014

I want to thank you, from all of us, for letting us stay in your beautiful home. We’ve been to the South of France many times, but the children voted this visit their best holiday ever! We had such a lovely time. Whilst it wasn’t as hot as it has been in other years, the weather really wasn’t an issue and was generally kind to us. Thank you, too, for all the extras you left – hugely appreciated, especially the Champagne which was delicious, and much enjoyed. Marzenna was quite wonderful, too - I could easily have wrapped her up and brought her home with me, if I didn’t think she’d miss being on the Cote d’Azur ... It’s hard to think how such perfection could be improved – you really have thought of everything. It made our holiday SO pleasant, and so easy to settle into new surroundings quickly. We’ve come home feeling fit and well, and slightly unsettled as we know where we’d rather be.

By Rosebelle, Sydney Australia on 25-Jun-2014

We spent 10 days here during late May and loved it. Unlike some rentals what you see in the pictures is what you get, and more. We were impressed with the finishing touches Michael and Denise added, large bottles of L'Occitane toiletries in the bathrooms, A bottle of French bubbles in the fridge along with some basics, condiments in the kitchen, books and DVD's, wooden coat hangers, blankets to put round the shoulders on chilly evenings.
The kitchen was well equipped, nice crockery and cutlery, pots and pans, excellent appliances, Miele fridge and dishwasher plus the
washing machine and dryer in the garage.
The towels were large and fluffy, pool towels are supplied, plenty of outdoor furniture on which to relax.
The internet worked well, Michael has added a booster for good reception outside.
Having secure parking on the property was a bonus, we felt safe and secure and in fact didn't really feel the need to leave at all. Relaxing around the fabulous pool was the order of the day.
Michael and Denise were in residence upstairs, they were very helpful without being intrusive, we spent some fun times together. Denise was kind enough to drive me to her hairdresser.
Thanks to you both for a memorable time, you are great hosts, I am now drinking much nicer rose'! We will return to our sanctuary at St Paul. Big hugs xx

Wunderbare Location mit Stil und Wohlfühlcharakter!

By Albrecht P, Munich Germany on 17-Oct-2013

Die Beschreibung stimmt und übertreibt nicht. Wir haben unseren Aufenthalt sehr genossen und es hat an nichts gefehlt. Das Haus ist hochwertig ausgesattet, sauber und geschmackvoll eingerichtet.
Man fühlt sich einfach wohl und kann gut entspannen. Um die Umgebung zu erkunden ist ein Auto sehr hilfreich und gerade für ältere Personen zu empfehlen!
Die Besitzer sind äußerst hilfsbereit und halten sich vornehm im Hintergrund.
Wir kommen gerne wieder!

Absolutely stunning property and location!

By ValerieS, Aberdeen UK on 29-Sep-2013

The first thing we noticed when we arrived is that the photos we had seen did not do the villa justice. It is far far better.......
The property is beautiful and maintained to a very high standard inside and out. The heated infinity pool is fabulous with panoramic views down the valley to the Cote D'Azur!
We enjoyed the most relaxing surroundings and with St Paul de Vence on your doorstep you have a very good selection of excellent restaurants to choose from!
We would have no hesitation in recommending this property. It is just simply the best!

Luxurious villa, pool and surroundings; elegance and quality, perfect!

By Dr JA United Kingdom on 19-Aug-2013

To start at the beginning: prior to arriving at the villa the owner, MIchael, was exceptionally helpful, advising on how the guests could best be accommodated. For example, I took my 6 year old grandson and Michael gave useful suggestions on space / lay out of the rooms - how to best to fit in the child bed. I also had an unusual request as two of my children (adults, in their twenties) were leaving part way through week 2, to be replaced with some old friends of mine. He arranged for an extra change of bed linen and extra cleaning so the rooms were fresh. In the event, too, all four bedrooms were absolutely super, all en suite with lovely furnishings and fittings. The art work both in the house and round the pool (statues) was lovely. Everything, right down to the kitchen chinaware, was top quality. There was plenty of everything you might need, plates, glasses, and so forth. The fridge and dishwasher were efficient; there was plenty of cupboard space and storage space . We had access to a large walk in cupboard with useful items (e.g. Nespresso coffee pods!). The generosity was unparalleled in my experience - there was even a chilled bottle of champagne awaiting us on our arrival, All aspects of the organisation were efficient. The owner, Michael, emailed to ensure we had all necessary information (e.g. maps on how to get there; details about locks / keys). He told us about how we would be well looked after (Marzenna and Jerry being there to greet us on arrival; Marzenna cleaning on certain days; the gardener visiting; the weekly visit from the pool man). The place was kept scrupulously clean and nothing was too much trouble. However, aside from such practical details, the main thing for us all was the beauty of the villa and surroundings, the ambiance, the good feelings that were engendered. You have so many choices - you can have a tranquil time (two large terraces and in the heated pool) or you can chose to walk into the medieval village St Paul de Vence; or some days use the place as a base for easy travel to Nice or Cannes or other local towns. To note, Vence was only a 10 minute drive and also lovely. I have stayed in rented villas on many occasions, but I have to say this one beats them all. I highly recommend it; you will not be disappointed.

This is a lovely property, which we would highly recommend

By SF Singapore on 05-Aug-2013

Villa Seburga is an extremely comfortable and well-appointed property. It is a luxurious home-from-home in a beautiful location. The property is designed to make the most of the spectacular views, and we certainly spent much of our time sitting on the terrace or by the lovely infinity pool. It is ideally placed for trips to the countryside (including the mountains) and the coast. St Paul de Vence is a charming little town, with plenty of good restaurants, and nearby Vence is also very interesting. We spent four very happy weeks in the villa (along with family and friends) and the entire experience more than met our expectations. The owners were extremely helpful, and the staff - the housekeeper who comes twice a week, the gardeners and the pool men - were all efficient, unobtrusive, helpful and pleasant. This is a really wonderful holiday home!

A haven of rest and relaxation

By SD, Irby UK on 08-Jul-2013

We experienced a wonderful week holidaying at Residence du Jardin.
The owners, Michael and Denise, met us on our arrival and explained all that we needed to know for our week's stay. They are a lovely couple and their kindness throughout the week was an extra bonus.
The main bedroom was more like a suite, large, airy and very comfortable and we found the heated infinity pool a joy to swim in. The view from the pool and terrace of the surrounding villages extending down to the Mediterranean was delightful and our week comprised of swimming, reading,relaxing and local sightseeing in Saint-Paul-De-Vence.

We chose to eat out once at a lovely restaurant called La Vieux Moulin. It was a birthday celebration and proved an excellent choice. Otherwise the Villa and grounds created a haven of pure relaxation that we were reluctant to leave.

Another well-deserved, excellent review for this beautiful property!

By Cae208 San Diego on 18-Jun-2013

My husband, two toddlers, and our nanny are just back from our stay at Villa Seburga for 11 days. To say simply that we had a wonderful stay is an understatement. I promised the incredible owners that I would not delay to add another excellent review to Trip Advisor.
Our excellent experience with this rental property began as I was conducting my initial search. The owner, Michael, was very responsive and answered all of my questions quickly and thoroughly, as well as to my criteria for a property. We visit the region every other year or more and know the area well. We knew exactly where we wanted to stay so then it came down to amenities. However, I quickly also valued the communication with the owner because we had a negative experience last time we rented a house in the area (but that time through VRBO). It came down to between this property and another similar one. I liked that I wasn't dealing with a management company and I valued the other reviews. It feels a little crazy to pay a large deposit and ultimately in full for a property you have never seen in person, but I had a good feeling from my correspondence with Michael and we decided to book.
Between booking and our arrival a few months later, I corresponded with Michael a few times on some details. My husband wished to be able to watch French TV in the master bedroom. Not only did Michael promise to move the TV and receiver from one of the other rooms, but he sent a full list of the available channels and a photo of the TV now in the bedroom. WoW!! I also asked about the types of draperies in the secondary bedrooms, as we have two toddlers who nap and go to sleep while it is still light out. In addition to describing each bedroom in accurate detail, Michael helped connect me with a local company that rents and delivers baby items like cribs and highchairs. He was better than any concierge at a 5 star resort!
Michael and his wife, Denise, met us in person the day we arrived and gave us a tour of the property and amenities. We felt welcomed into someone's home, rather than just a cold arrival at an unfamiliar place. They even left us a bottle of champagne to enjoy! More than the champagne, however, I have to say what I appreciated most is that they left various household items for our use like hand soap, dish soap, paper towels, toilet paper, laundry detergent, and most appreciated, Nespresso pods! This is nice especially when paying several thousand Euros a week to rent a property. The last time we rented a house, we arrived to find not even toilet paper. That was also a primary residence so it was obvious the owners had removed and stored everything before our arrival. It's not enjoyable to arrive especially after an international flight and have to go to the grocery store immediately to buy basic items in larger quantities than you will ever use during your stay, before you can do so much as use the toilet! Thank you, Michael and Denise, for this particular welcome!
The other highlight of Villa Seburga was the wonderful housekeeper, Marzenna. What a warm smile and helpful welcome we received from her! She was paid to come two days a week, but we also paid her separately to come an additional two days to help when we had some friends over for lunch. She was also nice enough to bring fresh bread each day that she came and even helped me get some flour one day from a neighbor for a recipe when I realized I had bought a bag of sugar. She was sweet with our children and was available to help with anything we might have questions about.
Michael was also in touch with us while we were there. Sometimes when something goes wrong, the way it is resolved says even more about service than if everything had been perfect. One day we realized that there was a large amount of shower water draining improperly from the garage. Marzenna contacted Michael, cleaned it up, and contacted a plumber. She met the plumber at the property, who we did not even have to meet. It turned out to be due to some previous renters who had abused the pipes and flushed large items. It was not a major inconvenience to us, but Marzenna and Michael were so nice about it and anyway resolved it quickly.
The property was very clean upon our arrival and Marzenna kept it that way during our stay. I never had to specifically ask her to clean anything, change bed linens, or towels. Marzenna even offered to put out the pool furniture cushions one day while we were out enjoying the pool.
We all slept so well and were so comfortable at Villa Seburga. The owners even have a thoroughly informative notebook with photos as well as user manuals preempting questions and proving a wealth of information.
I could say so much more, but this review is already too long! We were there with our nanny and 2 toddlers. It was a good fit for us because our children are well-mannered and accustomed to delicate items, but I wouldn't say the house is child-friendly for the average child because of all the stairs, the unfenced pool, and the nice furniture and art. Indeed, I would not recommend this property to just anyone. I think many people abuse a rental property as they do hotel rooms so I hope those people will stay elsewhere and leave Villa Seburga for those of us whom will appreciate its nice furnishings and overall beauty!
We will definitely be back!

Everything you could ask for

By TP Stockholm on 03-Sep-2012

Beautiful house situated in a calm area with magnificent views. Close to Nice airport, St Paul-de-Vence, Vence and other interesting places. Great secluded pool area and all amenities catered for. If you want anything better you need to rent a palace.

Easiest most relaxing place - just superior!

By MrsP0vey on 09-Aug-2012

We arrived to a warm welcome from Marzenna and Jerry who look after the property. There was a lovely treat of champagne awaiting us in the Fridge, a perfect way to start the holiday.
We were looking for a private, peaceful, secure, luxurious family sized villa and this ticked all the boxes. As the saying goes, you get what you pay for.

This was our first time staying in the south of France and we were a little apprehensive how we were going to keep our three teenage children amused for two weeks. We need not have worried between the piano, table tennis, large swimming pool (and spring board!) iPod docking stations, TV and wifi we hardly had to leave the beautiful villa. In fact most evenings they wanted to stay in!

We made good use of the BBQ and there is a very good selection of kitchen equipment which made cooking there was a pleasure, especially when you eat alfresco on the terrace with the most wonderful views. The villa was kept clean by the lovely Marzenna, who is very discreet; you don’t notice she is there. Any queries we had were quickly answered and the villa owners are very pleasant and will go the extra mile to help.

Some tips

The villa is situated in a first-rate location with the main town about a ten minute walk away, with lots of lovely restaurants and I would advise booking. There is a supermarket about a ten minute drive away and a wonderful bakery! Nice was about 15 minutes, Monaco/Cannes 40 minutes.

You are provided with towels to use by the pool. The showers have great water pressure. There is a washing machine to use if you need one. There is a nespresso machine in case you want to bring your own capsules.

This holiday was one of the most stress free holidays we have had and we will return!

“Infinity pool to die for!”

By DN, Norfolk UK on 16-Jun-2012

We decided to pamper ourselves by booking this very special luxury villa. We were not disappointed!

Everything we had hoped for was there - from the beautiful bathrooms with jacuzzi, the elegant dining areas to the convenience of a second kitchen at pool level. We ate al fresco on most days.

The highlight of our stay was the infinity pool. The pool was heated, which made it possible for us to swim in the evenings, watching the sunset over St Paul de Vence and the Mediterranean. This made up for the unseasonably low temperature in May.

This is a very special villa with many personal touches.
