Photos and Description of this La Colle-sur-Loup holiday villa

4 beds, 2 baths, open-plan living, easy walk to village centre, beautiful view

A fantastic place to relax and unwind, and for exploring the beautiful Riviera. Perfect for a romantic weekend, a family holiday, or a fun get-together with friends, Villa La Sousta is a charming, edge of village house that has been beautifully modernized. The interior is light, tranquil and luxuriously appointed. The upper level consists of lounge/dining area equipped with home entertainment system, fully equipped kitchen, and master bedroom with ensuite bathroom. Two balconies provide beautiful views to St Paul de Vence and the perfect place to enjoy breakfast or pre-dinner drinks. The lower level comprises 2 double bedrooms, plus a further bedroom with bunk beds suitable for adults or children, a family bathroom and separate cloakroom. A laundry/summer kitchen is also located on the lower level. The garden is a beautifully planted oasis, with heated spa/jacuzzi pool, and plentiful sun-loungers on their own deck (with shower). There is a gas bbq, and some delightful spots to wine and dine alfresco.

La Sousta is a 2-storey house, with the main living area enjoying the best views from upstairs.

• There is parking for 2 cars in front of the property.

• The Villa is accessed from street level up steps through the garden. There is also pedestrian access from the back gate into the village.

• The spa/ plunge pool is approximately 8’x15’ / 245cm x 455cm.

• The garden is tiered, and provides lovely spaces for the pool area, sunbathing deck and barbecue and outdoor dining area.

• A welcome basket will await you on arrival, and our local manager will greet you and be available throughout your stay, should you require any assistance.

Additional Services:: Please let us know if we can do anything to make your stay more comfortable. We are able help arrange a variety of additional services, such as: airport transfers; grocery delivery; catering; excursions with a driver; additional maid services (ie daily); additional towels or linen changes etc. Prices upon request.

Please note:: The property features a glass and stainless steel spiral staircase, which is not gated and may be difficult for the elderly/infirm and for those with small children.

• Although the pool is alarmed with motion detectors, it is unfenced. Therefore, again, we would not recommend this property to families with children under the age of 7.

Why Mrs Zoe Hitchens chose Cannes - Grasse - Antibes

I'm passionate about the South of France. I've been going there on holiday since I was a child. I love the light, the beach, the buzz, the markets, the restaurants, the landscape, the people and the language. I hope this is all reflected in our house, which is a wonderful, relaxing, tranquil place from which to explore this extraordinary area.

What makes this villa unique

So easy to get to, and yet it feels like a million miles away - flights in to Nice and then just a 20 min journey to the house. Location means that you can enjoy the peace and tranquility of the house, wander in to the village for your fresh baguette in the morning, or for your evening meal. When you want to go out, the whole of the Riviera is on your doorstop, waiting to be explored.

Visit to Villa La Sousta

  • 5 of 5

Exacty as described - a luxury villa. Tastefully decorated with all the latest mod cons.

Fantastic views of St Paul Du Vence out of bedroom window and a 3 minute walk out of a back gate into the little village of Colle sur Loup. Gorgous fresh bread every morning.

Heated spa pool so could be used day or night.

Great position near to Nice airport, but also only 20 minute drive to Cap D'Antibes. Found lovely private beach in Garoupe Bay.

Would definitely recommend this property to friends.

Property poorly maintained and not as described

  • 1 of 5

Although the property is situated in a beautiful area of the Cote d'Azur, it was not like we expected and described in the listing of this website. We have encountered several problems and the house was not at all clean . I have taken photographs to prove this. The shower in the bathroom downstairs was not working. The glass staircase was broken. The kitchen sink was blocked every night and it was very difficult to use the kitchen. The pool was not heated with max temperature 24 degrees in the middle of August. The tiles in the bottom of the pool are broken making it difficult and dangerous to walk. The pool is leaking and water is coming out of the control room with the danger of someone being electricuted. The boards of the decking area are moving badly and it is very dangerous to walk on it. The shower upstairs was full of mould and very dirty. The matress and bed downstairs were really poor quality. The bunk bed is only suitable for children and not for adults. The toilet downstairs was unclean and difficult to use. The barbecue was disgustingly dirty. All in all not a great experience for we paid for 10 nights. It has been listed as a luxury property but it has nothing luxury about It.It has been very dissapointing. We have contacted the owner and she refunded of only a small amount because she has high running costs and she needs to make a profit. But she said that she has no control over the house and she has tried to blame the manager for it. Indeed, the problems listed in a feedback left in 2015 are still there and no improvement has been made like she said in her reply. All in all a great dissapointment and a property to avoid at all costs.

We enjoy the nice holiday in la-colle-sur-loup. It is so clean, bright, well decoration, and with a super nice view to st. paul de vence. I will come back next year. And it really worth it.

Lovely villa, great location but poorly maintained

  • 3 of 5

Although the villa itself and the location were good, we were let down by the facilities, which I would assume is down to a lack of maintenance. We are all swimmers and accepted a plunge pool because it was advertised as having a swim jet...this never worked from day one and despite numerous calls it was never resolved. The pool has a major leak requiring it to be filled every morning. The bottom of the pool and the surrounds have broken tiles/slabs. The steps have broken and loose slabs, one of which needs attention before someone falls. The decking area is great but there are numerous loose and sprung boards. The barbecue was disgusting and there was no gas in either of the two cylinders, and I refused to clean someone else's no barbecues! We had a stench from the downstairs toilet during the last week which the manager sorted, but it wasn't very pleasant for the kids sleeping downstairs.

We made Zoe aware of the issues when we returned home and she did respond with the offer a 20% discount on a future booking. No explanation was given for the defective pool which we should have received prior notification of.

We wouldn't return even at 20% discount.

Owner's Response: I am always sorry to hear of any guest having a negative response to our property. We do carry out extensive maintenance during the Winter season, to ensure that everything is kept in good shape. Unfortunately, if things go wrong during the high season, it can be very difficult to find appropriate people to carry out repairs, which is unfortunately what has happened in the case of the pool. I have taken out any reference to swim jets in our advert, as even when they do work, they are not for the serious swimmer - it is just a nice feature of a spa pool. With regard to the barbecue, I am very sorry that it was not cleaned for these guests. In future, guests will be asked to leave the barbecue in the state that they found it, and it has been added to the departure checklist for our manager, which should prevent this happening again. With regard to the smell from the downstairs loo, my manager informs me that this was the unfortunate consequence of a heavy deluge of rain after a 2 month dry spell, and that the drains of the whole region were overflowing. By the next day the weather was back to normal and the problem quickly resolved. Our manager on the ground is always very quick to respond to our guests and goes the extra mile to make them happy; and we always appreciate any feedback during or after your holiday, so that we can improve things where we can.

Beautiful and quiet location

  • 5 of 5

My overall impression of our stay at La Sousta is positive, and We especially enjoyed the view and the balcony in shade. We Would Go back. It is hard to find a villa that is that Well decorated and with that beautiful view. it is Nice to have the shops in the small village close by. We

Also enjoyed the privacy of having your own pool and garden.

A great haven, well appointed and positioned.

  • 5 of 5

La Sousta was just as described and was a great place to stay. The garden and pool were lovely with different areas so we could all have our own space in sun or shade....perfect in the glorious weather. The local village had good restaurants and shops, so fresh croissants were a short walk not car journey. La Sousta was well placed to explore the local area and Nice airport. We would happily return there
