About Mike Smith (owner) & Sally Roux (manager)
We love holidaying in the south of France. The facilities around La Napoule are perfect for adults and children, with so much variety. La Napoule is a quieter village on the Riviera, easy to access the buzz of Cannes, easy to get away from that too. The location is close to the beach, golf and on the edge of the Massif de l'Esterel area of breathtaking natural beauty great for walking.
Mike Smith (owner) & Sally Roux (manager) purchased this Apartment in 2002
Why Mike Smith (owner) & Sally Roux (manager) chose Mandelieu-La Napoule
We saw this apartment and decided we just had to have it. It is close to the pool. The secluded terrace is essentially an extra room. The living room is spacious. The decor is attractive, mixing traditional style with modern comforts. It is safe, with security gates and underground parking. We have found that the neighbours who live in and visit the block are also very nice.

WE CALLED THE POLICE !!!
1. The location of the unit is not good because from one section, it's next to the main garden door and from the other, the main door is right in front of our door and everyone would pass through there and make a lot of noise. People would often ring our doorbell because they thought it was the light switch. 2. The location of the building is also not very good because it's next to the golf course and we would here the workers mowing the lawn EVERYDAY!!! There's also a railway line a bit further away which we could here the trains passing by, especially at night. 3. The WORST part about this apartment was the smell which was very unpleasant. It came from the carpark but would travel to the stairs, lifts, and also the hallway and because this apartment is on the ground floor, everytime we opened the door the aweful odour would come inside! 4. The boiler room, i think, was located right next to the unit which we were staying in and every 3 minutes it would make a sound which was unbearable. We could hardly sleep at night! There is also no insulation. We Could hear other toilets being flushed. 5. The manager (Sally) was also rude from the first phone call. She was unpleasant to deal with and also made a few sarcastic remarks. She's obnoxious and arrogant. 6. Lastly the caretaker started arguing & insulting me about my dog and then he grabbed my neck and pushed me towards the wall, which my family then stopped him from attacking me any further, which in the process hurt my sister's arm as well. I then called the police and filed a complaint against him. After this incident the manager called and said we had to vacate the premises!!! She said that it wasn't because of this incident at all, but it was because of the complaints she had received from other tenants about my dog whining. If it was because of that, she would've asked us to leave earlier not right after this incident. She hadn't even listened to our side of the story and listened to the caretaker and tried to throw us out!!! She is so worried about being able to earn a commission from future tenants that if there are any complaints she will try to throw you out. Afterwards she said i have to respect HIM! TERRIBLE MANAGER!
Please read the other reviews for a better reflection of this property, its location and our local manager. Over 16 years we've been fortunate with a stream of lovely guests who have enjoyed their time in this apartment, and many returned. This occasion was an unfortunate exception. Multiple neighbours complained about the noise from these people's dog. The concierge who is helpful, and our local manager Sally who is professional and nice, were put in an unenviable position. I am told these “guests” provoked the concierge physically and the neighbours, who are family and retired people. These renters treated the neighbours and the apartment with disrespect, making noise and mess. I am sorry that our neighbours had to put up with this. Fortunately it all cleaned up and we are back to normal with a 5 star review from the subsequent guests. Enough said!!
Really comfortable ideally located apartment!
We really enjoyed our time once again staying in this apartment! It is cosy with everything you need. Walking distance to the beach port supermarket and train station. With the pretty town of Mandelieu to explore also close by. Thank you Sally for meeting us and for being there!
A lovely apartment! Great location!
We really enjoyed our stay in this cosy apartment! 20 mins walk to the port and beach and only 5 mins to the supermarket ! The apartment was clean and well appointed and Mike the owner responded quickly to questions leading up to our stay. Would definitely recommend this to family and friends and hope to stay again in the near future!
Hi Annie, delighted you enjoyed your stay as much as we do, it’s our home from home.
The apartment is okay, but we didn't feel welcome at all.
Dear M & Mme de Leur,
I am sorry you felt that way. As you know all costs were clearly stated up front, shown in the message trail. Our local manager met you at the property and so we are surprised to hear you did not feel welcome. A number of people have rented this apartment a number of times over the years and have said how much they enjoyed it, and indeed how helpful our local manager has been.
I am glad you did not find fault with the apartment itself.

We were met by Anne the property manager who gave us all the information we could need regarding the area and property
The property was exactly as described,very clean and well maintained
There was everthing you could need in the kitchen even down to washing up liquid and dishcloths.
We ate in several times as we could get everything at the local Geant Supermarket 2 minutes drive away
Many restaurants were within walking distance and we tried several of these and fould them all to be excellent
The nearby beaches were clean and the sea was still fairly warm even in October
We would recommend this property to friends and relatives
Many thanks for your feedback. Delighted you enjoyed the apartment as much as we do.
Ideally located in a very popular part of the Cote d'Azur on France's Mediterranean coast (15 minutes by car to Cannes and 30 minutes to Nice).
The apartment is situated within a 15 minutes stroll (along a pleasant pine tree lined back road through a golf course) to the marina, beach, village and a range of good restaurants.
A large supermarket is only 5 minutes walk away for those fresh morning croissants.
There are a range of sporting options within 150 meters of the block: one of the South of France's most popular golf clubs, a local tennis club and a golf range. A wide range of other sporting and recreational facilities is also available in the local community.
There are numerous villages and towns to visit, including, Mougins (gourmet cuisine); Grasse (home of perfume); St Paul de Vence (famous for its art galleries) to name but a few. There is also an excellent train service to Cannes/Nice/Monaco for shopping and sight-seeing.
Golf: The historic and popular 'Old Course Cannes-Mandelieu' is only 150 meters from the apartment. It offers daily green fees, has a charming club house with bar / restaurant and boasts two courses. The 18 hole 'Old Course', 5749 meters / par 71, is annual host to the Côte d'Azur's most prestigious meetings and is distinguished by its even topography and multi-centenary Mediterranean Pine. In addition it offers a full 9 hole 'Grand Duc' course, 2118 meters / par 33, also useful when the 18 hole course is reserved for competitions.
