Recent guest reviews
Spent one week there with my family. We had booked a flat for 4 persons, it was kinda small but really good organised, clean and comfortable. Anyway next time we're planning to book a flat for 6 persons. The staff was really nice and welcoming. We loved our journey there, there's a swimming pool which is great, the beaches are about 5-10 mn by walking, the village is small but lovely and quiet. A great place for families. Moreover it's close to other cities like Toulon, Marseille etc. But the only thing I was disappointed in it was the WiFi, I paid about 25€ for a week to have access to WiFi but unfortunately it lagged a lot. I couldn't use it. Anyway we're planning to go there again next year.
We were on top floor of our accommodation block. Had no complaints about the size of the accommodation or standard. Our view from the very roomy balcony was stunning. We were surprised however that the kitchen did not have an oven. Air conditioning was also needed but not available because the nights were very uncomfortable because of the heat. We paid extra to have the room cleaned at the end of the holiday simply because it was something we really did not want to end our holiday doing. Considering how much we paid for the accommodation I strongly feel it should have included it being cleaned. Be aware that some accommodation, especially those on the ground floor, have very little outside room and a poor outlook.
Just returning from a week staying here and I must say we had a fantastic time. Family of four, 2 adults 2 teenagers we had a really great time. We have stayed with Lagrange previously and this is our favourite. The quality of the apartment was good. Downstairs living space excellent with a four seater sofa bed, open plan to kitchen, balcony and downstairs toilet. Upstairs was the challenge. 2 rooms one double one twin, both in the eves. I (at 5ft4) hit my head on the ceiling every time I hit in and out if bed. The kids didn't fair much better. Didn't overly bother us mind you. Storage is also a challenge but we made do and used our suitcases for laundry. Best thing about the apartment is the location. A previous review states there are no double beds but we had a double room and a twin room. The beds were very comfortable indeed. The apartments have all you need and a well equipped kitchen in terms of what's typical in a residence du tourism. We showered often and at no point did we ever run out of hot water, that's with 3 women!! There is carrefour supermarket a four minute walk away which is fantastically handy. Just walk out of the property and at the road turn right, the supermarket is at the end of the street. You can buy all you need there. The beach is 3 minutes on from that, just at the end of the road. It's worth walking the length of the beach as you come across some lovely quiet coves and nicer sandy beaches within 10 mins. Thursday is market day and it's worth taking the time to walk around. The Pool was nice but gets very busy later in the afternoon as all the families return. We preferred the beach. If you like wine, check out Bandol and the vineyards, they make a lovely day trip. On departure you do have to clean unless you pay for the cleaning package. If you dont know to bring cleaning products (we didn't the first time) you will have to buy them. Our apartment had a hoover, dustpan and brush, 2 brooms a bucket and a floor cloth. All we brought was multipurpose cleaner for kitchen and bathrooms, a sponge with scouring pad and fairy liquid. To give the place a good clean once we are all packed up takes less than an hour. All in all a great holiday, very relaxing, would happily return again.
Pros: The small village and the neighboring islands are beautiful. There are probably much better places to stay in the village though. Cons: They wanted to charge extra from nearly everything. E.g. we had choose to pay 70€ extra for final cleaning. Still we were expected to do the dishes, bring the sheets and trashes some 200m to bin/trolley with the threat of charging extra from the 300€ deposit. The apartment did not include a single item for cleaning (except vacuum cleaner). We were expected to buy our own. On arrival they provided a very long "inventory list" of dishes with price on each line. We were expected to do our own inventory and report if something was missing. Later missing things would be charged. When I reported several missing items, none of them were supplied during our stay. Neither was any other of our service request fulfilled. When we complained that the room was dusty and balcony was dirty, they said that it was the fault of the previous customers. We had a 6 person apartment with four people. It would have been very small for 6 people. There was not a single cabinet available for our own luggages. The only cabinet was locked and tagged "private do not open". Even though polite, the staff was totally inflexible and showed no empathy to us in any situation. I have never seen anything similar in France, or anywhere else. I will definitely look other alternatives next time.
Just returned from a week staying here and I must say we had a fantastic time. We were really impressed with the whole set up, from the friendly staff to the quality of the apartment and in particular the location. A previous review states there are no double beds but we had a double room and a twin room. The beds were very comfortable indeed. As a side note we also put the two singles together and used them as a double, no problem at all. The apartments have all you need and a well equipped kitchen in terms of what's typical in a residence du tourism. We showered often and at no point did we ever run out of hot water. Our only issue here was the amount of water that escaped and in turn soaked the bathroom floor. There is carrefour supermarket a four minute walk away which is fantastically handy. Just walk out of the property and at the road turn right, the supermarket is at the end of the street. You can buy all you need there. Thursday is market day and it's worth taking the time to walk around. Also worth trying Is the rotisserie chicken from the market,, really tasty! Pool was nice but as comfy as the loungers are to sit on, you really can't lay flat in them. Also, the pool gets very busy later in the afternoon as all the families return. All in all a great stay and we would choose to stay here in the future if we return yo the area.
This residence left many bad memories for us. However, the price was low and the rooms were better than the price would imply ($337 for 7 days!) Europeans have some very odd ways about them, from an American point of view. Doing business is NOT a priority of being in business. Case in point: This is a large property, serving 100s of guests, that closes the desk – and all services – every night and entirely on Wednesday! We were to check in on a Tuesday, but were delayed. Wednesday there was no one present or checking phone messages to even tell us we were screwed. We were forced to find other lodging and unfortunately we chose the worst hotel ever: Grand Hotel des Bains in Sanary-sur-Mer. NEVER stay at Grand Hotel des Bains in Sanary-sur-Mer! The second shocker was that they offer rooms with patios, but sometimes those patios are 6 feet below the parking lot and the view one gets there is the underside of all the cars parked at the edge of that patio. For a mere 11€, we upgraded significantly: better location, better view and an extra bedroom. The next pisser was the hot water. Each apartment is not limited in hot water use, BUT there is a trick that you must be aware of – and they DO NOT volunteer this information. After being completely denied of hot water at Grand Hotel des Bains in Sanary-sur-Mer, we immediately needed long showers. After our day out and dinner, my wife wanted to soak in a hot bath. But NO! I can't imagine a family or group with several American women getting enough hot water without this secret switch. At this residence, each room has their own hot water tank, but that tank will only generate hot water once each day (on a timer, set for 02h00 or so), unless you know where the manual reset switch is located. One bathtub full of hot water is all you get unless you know the secret. We didn’t find out about the secret switch until the day before we left. On the first day, we assumed it was a fluke and didn’t complain. On our 3rd day, it happened again, but after the desk had closed. We left a message and no one ever called us back. This was typical of the service we got, along with a wry sarcasm that struck us as if the clerk kept repeating “Stupid Americans” in her mind while she spoke with us with a “warm” smile that was simply condescending. The apartments are much larger than hotel rooms at twice the price, plus there is a kitchen. However (as stated on the web page I booked through), all the beds are singles, so romance is fraught with the possibility of falling onto the floor. The last oddity was that they require guests to “clean and sanitize” the entire apartment and dump the linen at the washroom before checking out. They have a kit you can buy for 8€, or you can buy a sponge and cleaner at the grocery for 3€. As for a complete kitchen, there are no disposables (no paper towels, sponges soap, etc.) and there is one roll of paper in the toilet. A follow-up cleaning crew supposedly comes in between guests, but the instructions seem to imply that they don’t get their hands dirty or bend over or do much of anything. There is a threat of a huge penalty if the staff is dissatisfied with your work. The Lagrange Prestige Les Terrasses des Embiez is only a few-minutes’ walk to the marina and a weekly farmers market held there. There is a ferry there that will take you to l'île des Embiez (Embiez Island), which is really nothing more than a nice boat ride in March. Perhaps it’s better during “the season,” but we walked around a good part of the island and it wasn’t worth getting off the ferry for. There was a winery on the island, but they were closed for lunch the entire time we were on the island. The Marina was a very nice place for a picnic or just a bottle of wine. Six-Fours-les-Plages is a good location for visiting the superb Bandol wine region, though be aware that 2.5 miles “as-the-crow-flies” can be a 25-minute drive between wineries. Domaine de la Bastide Blanche, Domaine de La Tour du Bon, Domaine Tempier, Domaine Ott, Château de Pibarnon and Domaine de Terrebrune were just a few of the great producers we enjoyed. The region is famous for rosé wine, but the reds were even more impressive! Lagrange Prestige Les Terrasses des Embiez is close enough to dine in Toulon and Hyères – if you dare! We attempted to eat at 12 restaurants in Toulon, but parking was absolutely impossible. Don’t waste your time going there for dinner without having a plan for parking. Giens was a beautiful area to visit, with a great park to watch the sun set from and two nice restaurants. Restaurant Grand Baie was recommended by everyone (but closed on the day we were there) and Le Tire-Bouchon (see review). Bottom line: 3 stars because it was a good room at a great price in a very good location, but there are far too many “gotchas” for the uninformed, first-time visitor. The pictures offered on websites are, of course, of the best locations. Be aware that the views from the cheapest rooms are not represented. There is plenty of gated parking, but you must get out of your car to open the gate (code), each way.
We spend two weeks in July in this beautiful place and we did the mistake, just before our Holliday to read the comment here on Tripadvisor, so we was not very optimistic before our arrival. Upon arrival We was welcoming by a very smiling and friendly staff in the reception explaining us everything about the appartments and our stay there, also that it was possible to order after cleaning for a minor fee, which we of course did, because who wants to clean in their Holliday? On arrival to the appartments we was surprised to see a very weldisposed appartments, containing bedroom, kitchen/living room and a separate room for children, on two sides the appartment was surrounded by a fantastic terraces, equipped with parasol, two tables, chairs and two sun chairs and with a beatiful view over the sea and bay. Few minuses: There are no oven in the appartment and no aircon. Pool is small, but as there are only 5 minutes walk to the beach it's workable. I must again emphasize that the reception staff was extremely helpfull and service minded during all our stay. As a self catered place its surely lived up to our expectations and we would gladly come again and recommend this to others.
En vacances pour une semaine aux Terrasses des Embiez. Appartement vue mer donc paysage très sympa! Par contre, pas de climatisation et en semaine de canicule dans le sud de la France, ça serait vraiment un plus! Propreté correcte hormis le canapé qui est très tâché ! Matelas très usés en mousse ce qui fait que l'on s'enfonce... pas très agréable pour dormir! Piscine grande et propre même si un peu de peinture serait nécessaire. Commerces, port et plages à 500m ce qui est un plus. Le Brusc est vraiment une station très jolie avec un esprit un peu village. Nous avons pris des soins SPA. Esthéticienne très sympa et très compétente. Ses massages sont à recommander!
Une résidence au bord de mer dans le Sud de la France et pas de climatisation ni de ventilateurs... inacceptable vu le prix des locations... Une piscine ouverte uniquement de 9H à 19H30 en plein mois de Juin ??? NUL Honnêtement vu le prix il y a bien mieux ailleurs !!!! WIFI Payant 5€ par jour.... Le seul point positif c'est la personne qui s'occupe du centre SPA et Massages, là je dois dire que j'ai été agréablement surpris par son sourire et surtout son savoir faire... BRAVO
Nous avons passé un très mauvais séjour. Ne mérite pas d'avoir 4 étoiles prestige...tout juste un 2 étoiles! Equipement des appartements inadapté. L'accueil est minable et la gestion de cet établissement mérite d'être revue. Incident survenu pendant notre séjour (remontée des égouts sur la terrasse, photos à l appui!!) et aucune réactivité ni geste commercial effectué...déplorable!
