"Brilliant Stay in Xanadu"
The bungalow is very spacious for and is secluded away to make a quiet and peaceful holiday. You have the use of all the facilitates to make sure you get the holiday you want. The proprietor could not have been more helpful with any request. There are notes about the property on a notice board in the kitchen which could save some time.
A satnav is very useful for driving around the area, almost a must.
Xanadu is only a short drive from nice airport and you are only a short distance from the major resorts on the Cote d'Azur. Cannes, Nice, Antibes and Monte Carlo. These can all be reached quickly subject to traffic which can be heavy in the resort areas.
The swimming pool is great for swimming after lazing in the sun on the patio.
You are on the edge of an eco park/forest with lots of trails to walk or cycle in. You have to remember this when using the pool first thing in the morning. But that is part of living in the countryside. A visit to mougins is a must. It is a delight hilltop town with artists and restaurants to while away the day.
The property is being modernised. And the fridge/freezer works but needs a clean.
You need a car for xanadu - to get to local shops and hypermarket, and to go anywhere. There is a local bus service but doesn't run frequently . It is a 10 minute drive to the local boulangerie.
There is only one sunbed and 2 deckchairs and no umbrella around the pool.
Also beware the security shutters are quite heavy to raise.
There are little foibles as with any property you need to accept but we had a great holiday and would recommend a stay to family and friends.
