Client Reviews

Here at Villa Living we pride ourselves on our discreet, personal service and exceptionally high standards.   We are delighted to share some of our clients comments with you: 

Second Home Owner :
We have used Villa Living's services to care for our French houses since purchasing them in late 2009. Throughout that period I have found Carole to be extremely effective and pragmatic in the way in which the houses have been managed and maintained. Knowing that Carole is looking after our houses when we are not there provides us with peace of mind that they are in good hands and I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking for similar services.

Rental Business :
With Carole and her team at Villa Living on hand to maintain my property I am happy in the knowledge that when guests arrive the house is clean and welcoming and if, on the rare occasion any unforeseen issues arise during their stay they are dealt with promptly. Upon leaving, the property is cleaned and prepared to a very high standard ready for the next guests. If the guests at our house are happy then I'm happy!

Rental / Reservation Services :

We were very pleased to have the experienced advice to start our rental business. 

Villa Living then dealt with all the enquiries and subsequent bookings, arranging the 'change-overs', the cleaning, meeting and greeting and all the questions that holiday makers need answering. 

The weight was taken off our shoulders and for that we were extremely grateful, also finding the Villa just as we left it when we return for our own holiday!

I am happy to leave the advertising and booking of vacations and longer lets for our villa to Carole at Villa Living. She handles all enquiries promptly and is able to answer any questions a prospective guest may have. Over the last 7 years, we are kept updated at all times as to progress of bookings and after a vacation is over Carole also arranges for us to receive feedback from guests – a very important feature that ensures we are able to make sure future guests get the most from our villa.

For the past 4 seasons we have rented our villa in Vives through Villa Living. Carole has done an excellent job for us. She has liaised with all the guests and gone to every effort to make sure our visitors have a happy holiday. We are continuing to use her services and very happy to recommend her if you are setting up a holiday rental business. 

Maggie & Mike Egerton 


Villa Living has managed the rental of our second home for the last 4 years. During that period, we have found Carole to be very effective in finding suitable rental opportunities for the property and ensuring that the house is used appropriately. Our visitors have regularly commented on how welcome they feel on arrival at the house and how knowledgeable Carole is about the local area. I would certainly recommend her to anyone looking for a trustworthy and reliable person to manage the rental of their property. 

Jonathan Craton 



We have appreciated the excellent service we have received from Villa Living in managing our house in France. Carole has ensured that we and our guests always receive a warm welcome. 

Linda Wright 



We found our holiday villa to be well maintained and equipped in every department from the gardens to property itself. Carole who manages the property on behalf of the owner is the perfect host and goes out of her way to make your stay perfect in every way.

Thank you for your diligent and attentive search. You have found us exactly what we were looking for despite my rather long list of requirements! Unreservedly recommended.
