Anbragt på en bakke med udsigt over Nice, historisk stenhus med dejlig udsigt over Middelhavet og de omkringliggende bakker. Ejendommen vender mod syd og sidder på en meget gammel olivenlund på en hektar jord. Oprindeligt var en romersk vagttårn, vores helt renoverede 'Mas Provençal' blev bygget i flere faser gennem århundrederne og er gennemsyret af karakter og charme. Huset er en ideel familie sommerhus, med masser af udendørs og indendørs rum, herunder en stor opvarmet swimmingpool, et gyngestativ, frugttræer (herunder lækre figner i august) et bordtennisbord og grill. Haven er helt sikkert for børn & grunden er beskyttet af en mur og intercom for besøgende. Tennisbaner er 5 minutter væk 7 havet er kun 15 minutter ned af vejen. Masser af bjergvandring og klatring også.

Poor location, overpriced, mosquitoes, cheaply furnished, some dangerous fittings
A total disappointment for a three-generation celebration of a 70th birthday.
In 40 years, this is the worst accommodation I have ever had!
Location: definitely not the 15 minutes advertised to the sea. It's in Gairaut, not Nice; it was not properly explained on the initial description. It's a 10 minute drive and park at the end of the tram line and a further 30 minutes from there to Nice seaside. By car, other beaches are up to a 40 minute drive. It's on a steep hill, in the middle of nowhere on a relatively busy and narrow road with no pavement, and a car is required for a trip even to the local grocery store.
Garden: half of the garden is dirt. All seating is rickety, old and extremely uncomfortable with very few cushions for the garden chairs.
Interior: children's bedroom- damp room next to utility room with only a curtain to separate. No window. The 2 rooms in the tower are plainly dangerous to get to, very steep stairs, hand rails broken or loose, very hard to access and carry luggage to.
Cracked windows, mosquito nets with big holes flapping in the breeze, light fittings not working, electrical fitting dangerous e.g. could pull oven fully out, some bedside table drawers not possible to open, majority of crockery chipped; the furniture is generally an assembly of mismatched junk.
Mosquitoes: big problem, have seen it on a previous review. Initially owners left us with a box filled with empty bottles of mosquito deterrents until I complained. At times impossible to be outside, all 10 of us including 4 children ended up with big mosquito bites all over our bodies.
Owners: unfriendly. When I mentioned that we were 2 towels short I was questioned on the number of bedrooms we were using.... this for towels that looked beyond use for pets.
Overall, I'd never recommend this property or area! One to avoid, plenty of better places in the area as we experienced in our first week on French Riviera.
A pack of lies by unscrupulous people seeking an easy refund!
For the true picture, we respectfully invite you to read our comprehensive guest reviews, where you will find a 5-star rating overall.
To address our guest's remarks: Apart from the normal presence of mosquitos throughout the French Riviera where our property is located, everything else stated by our imaginative guests is grossly misleading when not blatant lies. This is in direct contrast with all our other reviews.
We take pride in welcoming and attending to our guests with courtesy and heart.
Never once, throughout the course of their stay, did these guests call us to complain or address any of their "exhaustive" list of issues, clearly drawn up in an attempt to dishonestly obtain an easy refund after spending the week on the property.
For the curious holiday-home seeker, one easily verifiable falsehood concerns the location of our property. We are indeed located on Gairaut hill, and not in the middle of nowhere! Gairaut is an integral part of Nice and is in fact the city’s greenest and most prestigious residential neighborhood. A quick look on Google will also show that there is no such thing as an unpaved road in this neighborhood!, or anywhere else in Nice, for that matter.
We have a 2nd holiday property in the area which we proudly rent through Homeaway under listing 50366. If you have the time, do kindly have a look at our guest reviews for this home as well; it too carries a 5-star rating.
Please feel free to request all further details needed with respect to the misinformation given in this guest review. We will be more than happy to answer any questions you may have.
A magical holiday
My family and I stayed in Edgar’s beautiful home to celebrate my 70th birthday. I wanted to go somewhere special and wasn’t disappointed. Five adults and three children enjoyed the many facilities offered including a lovely pool. We were able to visit central Nice and the surrounding countryside returning to Serena Antica for barbecues and meals in the local restaurants.
Rustic historic stone watch tower on a pleasant property with good access.
The first immediate impression of this property met all our expectations! The large grounds , pool and covered patio allowed our 4 young grand children to have much freedom and fun! The numerous toys were much appreciated! Many a meal was enjoyed outside under the covered patio as well as in the kitchen open plan area! The kitchen was well equipped with a bbq close by! The tv living room was comfortable with large couches! The bedroom on the top floor of the tower was disappointing, as it was inaccessible due to the very steep staircase , for our young children! The access to the second bedroom in the tower is via a narrow staircase which made it impossible to take suitcases up there!
The downstairs 3 bedrooms were adequate but the road noise and ventilation was inadequate when shutters were closed. The mosquito nets were not fit for purpose! Insufficient fans and coils could not keep them at bay!
Amazing historical home and property!
Antica Serena was a wonderful home base for four friends exploring the region. In the evenings, we came home to relax, cook dinners, eat outside and swim. We made lifetime memories in this eclectic and inviting home. We would definitely stay here again.
beautiful house with great views
Beautiful house located in the hills outside nice. Very well set-up for family’s to keep all entertained. Very easy to get into nice once you get the hang of the buses(25,63 and 76) bring you into henri sappia where you can hop on a tram etc. Very happy with the house and facilities
