Amazing property in Nice
Our family (total of 9) spent 5 days at this property. The location is right on the sea with a view from many of the rooms. There was plenty of space for all of us to relax both inside and out. We did have a problem with the water system while we were there but it was repaired very quickly and didn't cause us very much trouble. There is a grocery store within walking distance and the access to the beach is also walkable. For trips into Old Town Nice, we used Uber. We also used the local bus transportation to access a beach farther away. Everything you need for your stay is at this property. We used the outdoor barbeque as well as the pool and spa. We had a lovely time and hated to go. We especially appreciated the A/C at the property since it was warm/hot during out stay.
Wonderful holiday at the villa Boron
We stayed for a beautiful 2 weeks in september with my husbands extended family. The villa really lived up to our expectations and made our holiday very special. I had initially seen mixed reviews on various websites but I contacted Your Nice Apartment, the agency who manage the property and really grilled them about every aspect of this villa. To be fair they put up with my never ending questions and answered each one, the girl i spoke to was very friendly and reassuring explaining the villa has recently been renovated and to our surprise and great pleasure now has a jacuzzi installed on one of the terraces over looking the sea - this was fabulous watching the sun set with a glas of champagne! After being satisfied with the answers to all my questions we booked and were met with Delia the manager, who is extremely pleasant, informative and helpful - my mother in law is an especially nervous lady and even she felt thoroughly looked after, well done Delia! The villa itself was as good if not better than the photos, there is enough space for everyone to relax and on a very hot day the indoor pool is a lovely refreshing treat. The location couldn't be better with a large supermarket only 5 minutes walk. Ville Franche is a 10 min bus journey and we walked down to the Port of Nice is approx 10 mins to sample some of the fine restaurants there. We are already planning our return stay in 2017 and that cannot come quickly enough! Thanks you.
Lovely house, a few issues
The property was clean on arrival and the agent gave us a brief tour explaining various features of this well located villa. It had good air con, plenty of space and a lovely outlook but several issues spoiled our enjoyment.
The agent had warned us that we would be billed if we placed glass in the recycling bin but we later found that our bin was already full of glass.
We were also very disappointed to find that although the villa had been advertised as having English sky channels there was in fact no working TV on the premises. This was a great disappointment in a week where Wimbledon and the test match cricket was taking place.
The wave function in the pool did not work either and running the jacuzzi at the same time as the laundry facilities caused the power supply in the house to fail.
Lastly but certainly not least was our encounter with a rat which entered the villa on a nightly basis via the shower drain on the ground floor. Finally on the Friday we succeeded in cornering it and drowning it in the toilet The agent attended afterward and cleaned the extensive droppings but it was a horrific experience which resulted in no one being able to sleep on the ground floor on our last night.
We are very sorry you couldn't operate the TV. You were briefed how to use it and Delia, the villa manager even came back to the villa the next day to show you again how to operate the TV. The on/off button is the red one.
The wave pool again is an on/off button under the water and we understand you need to push this slightly harder to activate and you found this difficult - again Delia explained how this worked.
Finally with regards to the 'rat' which you told us you skilfully caught and then flushed this down the toilet. We cannot find any evidence in the villa and you could not show us any. We obviously were highly concerned that you flushed it down a toilet as we fear this would potentially block the pipes. But again after investigation down all toilets we could not see any evidence.
We therefore find ourselves in a situation whereby it is very difficult to offer compensation when we can't find evidence of what you are talking about and you can not provide any. We also find the operational problems you experienced could be solved by following the Managers instructions.
We would like to reassure potential guests and point them toward valid reviews which are listed below.
The YNA Team
Villa Boron ticks most of the important boxes.
The location is perfect for exploring the area by bus, with the bus stop 50 metres away, serving both the 100 bus taking you as far as Italy for 1.5 euros and the local bus to St Jean Cap Ferrat and central Nice. The walk down to Nice port is rewarded by superb views over the city, and a walk up to Fort Alban on top of Mont Boron gives panoramic views in all directions.
The supermarket is just 100 metres away, and will provide just about everything you need, including food for the barbecue.
The villa has superb living and outdoor space, with a very well equipped living/ dining / kitchen, an excellent barbeque area and terraces for every occasion. The views of the Med are wonderful.
Just a few cautionary notes- 2 bedrooms share a bathroom, which is actually the ensuite of one of the bedrooms, (could be inconvenient), and there is no separate w.c.
As mentioned in previous reviews, some of the showers don't operate fully and the shower doors are loose, so you risk flooding the bathroom if you're not careful! Possibly for this reason, the downstairs bedrooms smell strongly of damp. Property needs some tlc in this respect. 4 star could easily become 5 star.
Despite this and the fact we were flooded on the first night by an incredible storm, which also blew the electrics, and we had no water the following day (all sorted very swiftly by the lovely Delia, our property manager), we had a fantastic family holiday and would recommend Villa Boron for those like us who don't worry too much about a few problems with the bedrooms and showers by the time they eventually retire for the night.
Thank you for your feedback.
We can advise that during the winter season 2015 we have made considerable refurbishments to Villa Boron.
These include the installation of an additional bathroom c/w luxury shower, so all bedrooms now have allocated bathrooms. Plus the shower cubicles have been replaced entirely downstairs to stop this flooding issues from happening.
There is also a new hot-tub on the terrace, plus all new garden and terrace furniture.
We have also installed a new sofa within the living area.
We hope you would consider booking again following our updates of the villa.
