TripAdvisor ***** Review
(English Translation) "Mediterranean luxury"
Seburga Villa is a luxury residence located in the lush hills of St-Paul-de-Vence and within walking distance of the old fortified village. The residence offers unparalleled comfort and all the necessary equipment (including cooker, microwave, dishwasher, BBQ and laundry room) made us feel at home during our stay. The villa is well appointed and tastefully decorated. The residence of the garden on the ground level offers two large functional bedrooms with respective bathrooms, ideal for a family or a couple of friends who want to share a good time in a beautiful environment. The property offers spectacular views from the master bedroom and huge terrace with stunning infinity pool. It is the ideal place to relax, unwind and rest between excursions on the French Riviera, Monaco, St. Tropez as well as Aix, Grasse, Antibes, Cannes and Nice. In addition to close proximity to St-Paul-de-Vence, nearby there is also a splendid shopping mall (Polygon), excellent restaurants (for all budgets ...) and grocery stores (E. Leclerc). The owners are friendly and extremely helpful. The housekeeper is effective, discreet and pleasant. Villa Seburga is a superb residence for holidays on the Riviera!
(Original Review in French) "Luxe méditerranéen"
La Villa Seburga est une luxueuse résidence située dans les collines luxuriantes de St-Paul-de-Vence et à distance de marche du vieux village fortifié. La résidence offre un confort inégalable et tout les équipements nécessaires (incluant cuisinière, microondes, lave-vaisselles, BBQ et salle de lavage) pour se sentir chez soi pendant notre séjour. La villa est bien aménagée et décorée avec goût. La résidence du jardin du 1er niveau, avec deux grandes chambres fonctionnels avec salle de bain respectives, est idéale pour une famille ou un couple d'amis qui désirent partager un bon moment dans un environnement magnifique. La propriété offre une vue spectaculaire de la chambre principale et de la gigantesque terrasse avec superbe piscine à débordement. C'est l'endroit idéal pour relaxer, décompresser et se reposer entre les excursions sur la côte d'azur, de Monaco, à Saint-Tropez en passant pas Aix, Grasse, Antibes, Cannes et Nice. En plus de St-Paul-de-Vence à proximité, l'on trouve tout près également un splendide centre commercial (Polygone), d'excellents restaurants (pour tout les budgets...) et des épiceries (E. Leclerc). Les propriétaires sont sympathiques et extrêmement serviables. La gouvernante qui pendant la semaine, est efficace, discrète et agréable. La Villa Seburga est une superbe résidence pour les vacances sur la côte d'azur!
What a wonderful experience! This property is truly 5 star luxury in every respect. Nestled in the hills above Nice, within walking distance (albeit a bit steep in places if you decide to walk) of the lovely village of St Paul de Vence, this remarkable villa has everything that the discerning traveller could possibly want. The owners (Michael and Denise) are such lovely, hospitable people and provide everything you could want for when travelling. Very few villas in our experience have such luxurious fittings and provisions; no need to provide toiletries, dishwashing/laundry detergent, it is all provided; and a housekeeper comes in twice a week to do the cleaning. The fully equipped kitchen has everything you need, spotlessly clean with Miele appliances and Portmeirion crockery. If you don’t want to eat in, there is an excellent restaurant (l’Olivier Rouge) on the corner of the main road up to the villa; or in the village close by. The private heated infinity–edge swimming pool is just superb, the view across the valley is remarkable and the gardens are beautiful. We had a lovely week here and were very sad to leave. You just do not normally find this high standard of luxury in a rented villa; it was more like being in a 5 star resort but in a private and peaceful villa. Highly recommended for a lovely holiday.

We had a wonderful week of luxury at the apartment; the pool and the views were all perfect - as were our charming hosts: Denise and Michael.
We spent 10 days here during late May and loved it. Unlike some rentals what you see in the pictures is what you get, and more. We were impressed with the finishing touches Michael and Denise added, large bottles of L'Occitane toiletries in the bathrooms, A bottle of French bubbles in the fridge along with some basics, condiments in the kitchen, books and DVD's, wooden coat hangers, blankets to put round the shoulders on chilly evenings.
The kitchen was well equipped, nice crockery and cutlery, pots and pans, excellent appliances, Miele fridge and dishwasher plus the washing machine and dryer in the garage.
The towels were large and fluffy, pool towels are supplied, plenty of outdoor furniture on which to relax.
The internet worked well, Michael has added a booster for good reception outside.
Having secure parking on the property was a bonus, we felt safe and secure and in fact didn't really feel the need to leave at all. Relaxing around the fabulous pool was the order of the day.
Michael and Denise were in residence upstairs, they were very helpful without being intrusive, we spent some fun times together. Denise was kind enough to drive me to her hairdresser.
Thanks to you both for a memorable time, you are great hosts, I am now drinking much nicer rose'! We will return to our sanctuary at St Paul. Big hugs xx
(English Translation) "Wonderful location with style and feel-good factor!"
The property description was accurate, without any exaggeration. We enjoyed our stay; there was nothing we missed. The house is equipped with high quality items, clean and tastefully decorated. Very comfortable and relaxing. A car is useful to explore the surrounding area - especially for older people! The owners are extremely helpful and discreet. We will be back!
(Original Review in German) “Wunderbare Location mit Stil und Wohlfühlcharakter!”
Die Beschreibung stimmt und übertreibt nicht. Wir haben unseren Aufenthalt sehr genossen und es hat an nichts gefehlt. Das Haus ist hochwertig ausgestattet, sauber und geschmackvoll eingerichtet. Man fühlt sich einfach wohl und kann gut entspannen. Um die Umgebung zu erkunden ist ein Auto sehr hilfreich und gerade für ältere Personen zu empfehlen! Die Besitzer sind äußerst hilfsbereit und halten sich vornehm im Hintergrund. Wir kommen gerne wieder!
Absolutely stunning property and location!
The first thing we noticed when we arrived is that the photos we had seen did not do the villa justice. It is far far better.......
The property is beautiful and maintained to a very high standard inside and out. The heated infinity pool is fabulous with panoramic views down the valley to the Cote D'Azur!
We enjoyed the most relaxing surroundings and with St Paul de Vence on your doorstep you have a very good selection of excellent restaurants to choose from!
We would have no hesitation in recommending this property. It is just simply the best!
Owner Note: Val and Brian returned again in 2016, and have booked again for 2017.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your gorgeous Villa Seburga! You both made our stay very special and thank you so much for that. The whole experience was fantastic!
We experienced a wonderful week holidaying at the apartment at Villa Seburga.
The owners, Michael and Denise, met us on our arrival and explained all that we needed to know for our week's stay. They are a lovely couple and their kindness throughout the week was an extra bonus.
The main bedroom was more like a suite, large, airy and very comfortable and we found the heated infinity pool a joy to swim in. The view from the pool and terrace of the surrounding villages extending down to the Mediterranean was delightful and our week comprised of swimming, reading, relaxing and local sightseeing in Saint-Paul-De-Vence.
We chose to eat out once at a lovely restaurant called La Vieux Moulin. It was a birthday celebration and proved an excellent choice. Otherwise the Villa and grounds created a haven of pure relaxation that we were reluctant to leave.
We were so lucky to stay at the Pool Apartment - Villa Seburga from 14.06-13 to 24.06.13. Everything was just perfect. When we arrived we had a very warm welcome from the owners Michael and Denise Brocklehurst who know how to treat their guests in a very nice and discreet way. The property is wonderful and everything is very clean and nice and "the pool" ...lovely!!! We are now back In Denmark and planning our next stay in Villa Seburga.
