“The South of France at its best - a beautiful, spacious villa in the hills”
Reviewed October 5, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We had a great stay at this wonderful villa during the summer holidays. The bedrooms are all well-sized, and there is a great open living/dining room area where we could all socialise - this opens up onto a patio with stunning views of the sea. I loved lying in the hammock! There is plenty of sun-bathing space, with deck chairs on the patio and also on the terrace down next to the infinity pool. Kitchen was very well equipped, we found everything we needed.

The villa is tucked away up in the hills, so it feels very private, but its only a 10 minute walk down the hill to the small town of Rayol-Canadel-Sur-Mer (I recommend the bakery for fresh pastries at breakfast time!). There is also a great seafood restaurant at the bottom of the hill (Maurin des Maures). The local beach is not far, with watersports available, and a number of beachside bars/restaurants for cocktails at sunset. We can't wait to go back!

“A stunning and beautifully presented villa with outstanding views”
Reviewed October 5, 2015 for a stay in June 2014

I was very apprehensive at first about booking a family holiday online but from the word go Joyce put my mind at rest and everything went smoothly and according to plan. As a result this was the second time after a 3 year gap we have stayed at La Respelido and again wasn't disappointed. A beautiful and well equipped villa with superb views across the bay, tastefully decorated and plenty of room for our extended family of five couples. Ideally located for some of the best beaches in the South of France and perfect for cycling or walking. I would recommend this villa to anyone and hope to return again soon.

Liked best: Infinity pool, location. view and overall presentation of villa.

“Stunning Holiday at La Respelido”
Reviewed September 23, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We enjoyed a wonderful family holiday and luckily chose to stay at La Respelido. We travelled as a family of eight and had plenty of space to move around the villa particularly enjoying the wrap around terrace and of course the infinity pool. The villa is extremely well equipped, a real home from home and you really do want for nothing. The views are second to none and we wouldn't hesitate in recommending to anybody and can't wait to return..

“What a fantastic villa”
Reviewed September 23, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Our stay at La Respelido was just magical! The villa is simply superb and as for the view-Wow!! We stayed here for a week in May and although we had intended eating out during our holiday we ended up visiting the wonderful local shops - everything you could possibly need is in the local village- and buying food to enable us to prepare meals in the villa and thus make the most of the wonderful facilities, location and view. The villa is totally secluded and private and although you really need a car to get to and from the village we spent many an hour in the early evening walking in the hills behind the villa. Some of the views are absolutely spectacular. We can't wait to visit La Respelido again.

“Wonderful family retreat”
Reviewed September 15, 2015 for a stay in August 2014

We stayed for a week as a family group of 8 and felt this was a very special place. We had wonderful views and weather and the villa was so well laid out and equipped that we didn't always want to stray very far. The house itself is light and airy and had everything we needed both inside and outside (boule court, gardens, terrace, shady nooks and that wonderful infinity pool), yet it had a family feel and we felt at ease to relax and enjoy it all. Owners very helpful and gave us good instructions on getting there and we were met by the caretaker so our journey all went very well. Would love to return.

“Beyond wonderful”
Reviewed September 15, 2015 for a stay in July 2014

So good we came back twice.... July 2013 and July 2015. It's hard to know where to begin when describing La Resplido, but the first thing that comes to mind is the view. It is literally breathtaking, and visible from nearly every room, deck and terrace. The green of the hills, pocked with clusters of bright flowers, the deep blue of the sea, the island silhouettes. And the view changes with the light. My favourite place is out on the deck in the evening, watching it all melt into syrupy darkness with a glass of wine and the warm Cote d'Azur breeze in my hair! But I'm getting carried away...

So, the villa: plenty of room, everything works, outdoor seating and eating and a swimming pool straight out of one of those luxury brochures you look at and think '...one day...'. It's an infinity pool and at any point during your swim you'll feel as it you could just swim off out into the sea.

The location itself is charming. You need a car, unless you like walking up hills, but it's worth it to get up into some peaceful greenery. Not that this area is overrun by tourists anyway - in fact, Rayol is fairly quiet, which is remarkable as it has the best beaches in reach, all with fabulous 'pieds dans l'eau' restaurants. It's the best of all worlds - height for the views and the breeze, proximity to the village for essentials, and on the doorstep a choice of beaches and beautiful towns like Bormes and Ramatuelle (and St Tropez isn't far).

I can't rate this place highly enough. It just has the recipe for an amazing holiday. It doesn't even require the right frame of mind. After a terrible journey the first time we arrived with black clouds over our heads - they shifted pretty quickly.

After going twice in a row, we are taking a couple of years to broaden our horizons. Although we'll be back soon to see the one opposite La Resplido again.
