The apartment is 42 sq metres with a large sun terrace on a hill, looking out to the sea and surrounded by countryside. Breakfast or dinner on the terrace is a favourite with our guests. The terrace has the sun all morning which streams into the apartment, but it stays cool throughout the day due to its high position and the gentle sea breezes .There is one main double bedroom and another bunk bed ' cabine' bedroom, all decorated in light bright colours with new curtains and furnishings. There are two seperate bathrooms, one with a shower and one with a bath.
Contemporary classic furniture and TV in the lounge and new electrical appliances in the kitchen with induction hob, microwave, etc but you will want to eat the local fresh cold food, its too hot to cook! You can buy croissants and snacks at reception and eat them in the poolside cafe/picnic area. Wi-fi, Ipod and CD player plus DVD/TV are all available. The apartment is beautifully decorated and well looked after, but not precious.
Satellite coverage for mobiles is good and there is wi-fi available in public areas- but this is a place for outside activities,as it's sunny most days . Kids will want to be playing in the gardens and pool/beach with their new friends. Adults will want to be chilling by the pool, at the beach or playing golf/ walking/sailing etc. If it does rain, there are DVD's, games and books in the apartment and many, many indoor leisure/activity centres in Roquebrune, Ste Maxime or Frejus.
