“C'est tres Charmant!”

Now, I am not French! So I hope I have entitled the review correctly! Having said that, we were a group of three people - two Australians and one English person.....one couple, with a friend! Having done extensive research as to where to stay in Koh Samui, we decided upon Villa Charmant. My husband, Noel, exchanged emails with the owners (I believe Anne and Peter) and all went swimmingly. We knew when we arrived, we would be placed in the expert hands of Piwi. And definitely expert hands they are. Piwi is delightful. Not only did she familiarise ourselves with the place upon our arrival, but then explained the locale. Lovely lady. At this point I must also mention the owners, who were on holiday in the Phillipines, but took the time to send us an email to ensure all was well. Excellent customer service!

As to Villa Charmant. It is ideally located. There are breakfast retreats and restaurants in the strip at your fingertips. Anne and Peter have gone to great lengths, too, to compile a folder that helps when it comes to dining. Plus, there is a mobile phone where you can ring for a taxi ( we did) that is reliable (it was) to take you wherever you would like to travel.

The rooms - bright, airy and breezy. Loved the size of the villa. For us (one couple in one room, and a friend in the other) it was ideal - we had a whole villa to ourselves. One thing I particularly loved - the floorboards. We have floorboards at home. How wonderful to feel that wood when you are barefooted and it is as warm as. Excellent air conditioning, by the way.

If you are "into" television (oh goodness, who would be in such a beautiful location) - it all works very well. In fact, the television and music "set up" is excellent.

Then there is the view. Oh my! I hardly bothered with the (very good) pool. In the mornings, it was swimmies on - open the gate to the property - and walk straight onto the beach and the sea. Brilliant!

There is a great kitchen - but we only used the fridge to make ice for the gin and tonics!

This is a very lovely property - and beautifully situated. Yes "Dreamers" (a night club) was loud one night. A shame really. But we would suggest you just have another gin and tonic and forget about it, because Villa Charmant is indeed lovely, and well worth the odd night of vaguely loud music.

Definitely go to the Friday night market at the fisherman's bend (oooops, might be the wrong name now thinking about it) - and definitely have a walk up and down the strip and familiarise yourself with the restaurants that are very close.

Would we come here again? Oh yes! Thank you Anne, Peter and Piwi for a fabulous week.

“The best place for family holidays”
Reviewed 10 March 2014 for a stay in February 2014

We have been two weeks in this Villa and we really loved it from the beginning of our stay. It has a unique access to the lovely and sandy beach of Bang Rak. The villa is five minutes away from a local town called "Fisherman's village" which has some nice shops and restaurants. Unfortunately it's a little touristic there and the prices are higher than normal. But it's much nicer than in Chaweng, a place which we didn't like at all.

The landlords were very friendly and gave us a warm welcome with some very useful tips for our stay. They also gave us a mobile phone for contacting them at any time we wanted to. This service was really great because we had a lot of questions during our stay.

The villa is two-storeyed and looks exactly like on the photos. It is ideal for a group of 6 people because of the three beds and bathrooms. The only disadvantage is the spiral starcase which can be a bit dangerous for small children. Every fourth day the villa was cleaned by two friendly locals which can also cook for you a delicous lunch or dinner.

All in all we can warmly recommend this holiday rental to everyone. Thank you Ann & Peter!

This was our second stay at Villa Charmant and our first since the renovations which are outstanding. Ann, Peter and Piwi are fabulous hosts from start to finish. Again we travelled with 3 children and elderly mother. The villa feels like home and we hit the ground running. Again we hired a car from there friend Keith which Ann arranged for us making travelling around the island with kids very easy. The Villa is very clean, full of facilities and Very comfortable. I was a little concerned with previous reviews about "Dreamers" and yes on Saturday's nights only it does get loud. Our kids slept through this- swimming all day in the pool helps so I would suggest either join in and have a drink there or just stay up watching movies (like we did) During the day and other nights the place is vacant, staff sitting on the beach waiting for patrons.. Ann again suggested some great restaurants which we visited twice because the food was so good (Nirvana @ Fisherman's) Everything is at your doorstop at this Villa, pool, beach, Secret garden along the beach with great food and cocktails to die for, French bakery across the road for fresh yummy croissant's and hot cross buns, don't forget the night market on Friday's - We will be back again next year for sure. Thanks Again Peter and Ann

“Amazing house, most friendly hosts!”
Reviewed 13 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We stayed in Villa Charmant for 13 days in September 2013. The moment we walked in we loved the feel of the house. Everything you need for an amazingly relaxed holiday is there! We loved the pool, even though we had the beach on our doorstep. We loved sitting in the garden while the kids would swim in the pool for hours in a row! The street it full of little nice places to eat, but not too overwhelming, like Chaweng or other busy places. We had some great massages across the rd and bought fresh croissants and bread at the french bakery 50 m away. Peter and Ann, the owners were always on 'stand by' and they were amazing hosts. We felt very welcome. Piwi helped us out in many ways (dropping of laundry, arranging a car etc).
We loved travelling around Koh Samui to discover the Island but at the same time we loved chilling out at the house, as it just felt so good!
Yes, we did hear Dreamers, and yes the first night it kept us awake. Not the kids, they slept right through it. And we also did hear them more evenings then one. But they were only really loud one time during our holiday when they had a special DJ over. I agree with the other review, I would be very surprised if they last, because the place was near empty pretty much every night. Please let this place not stop you from booking this amazing villa as you will miss out on a special holiday! We will return again and will recommend this place to anyone going to Koh Samui.

“Back in a heartbeat, felt quite emotional when we left and had one last look at Villa Charmant”
Reviewed 19 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We have highly recommended this villa to everyone we know. We have read the review regarding Dreamers along the beach and to be honest the place didn't even cross our minds. I think in the 8 days, there was one night when it was fairly loud, but only till about midnight. It was hardly a rave, and certainly in no way did it effect our holiday. We actually quite like the chilled out background music they played in the background in evening. The place was "dead " during the day. I would be amazed if it will be still going by Christmas. We had one of the best most relaxing holidays ever. I really don't see where the other guests are coming from about the place next door. They even served us Mojitos by the pool in our villa. We would be back to Villa Charmant in a heartbeat and really can't find fault with the place or location. Again thank you for such a brilliant memorable holiday.

Andrea and family (14th – 22nd August)
