Here's what some of our guests have had to say about their stay in a Scott Dunn villa:
Bastide des Virettes, South of France - Lord, July 2015
"This was my first villa experience with Scott Dunn. As a working mum with 3 small children, I knew having a chef and nanny would be a treat, but I didn't realise how truly special it would be. On most luxury vacations, you still have to fit in around restaurant times, or do the cleaning and mopping up after your children, so you always feel on duty. But at Virettes, everything was geared towards making life as easy and relaxing as possible for us all. The service was of 5 star standard, but much less stuffy than in a hotel, yet the staff never overstepped the mark into familiarity and judged the mood perfectly. It's a uniquely relaxing and incredibly special experience. I can't wait to return!"
La Font, Mallorca - Lawson, June 2015
"The team of staff at La Font where amazing. Andy was an exceptional host and wonderful bread maker. Bradley's food was incredible - what a talent. He makes the best canapés! And Jo really was Supernanny! She looked after the entire Lawson family - young and old. The children's food was very good - our four year old ate way better than he does at home which was great. Being able to enjoy a relaxing family vacation with all the stressful bits removed gave us the opportunity to savor some great moments with the boys and some very precious Mummy and Daddy time!
I would recommend Scott Dunn to anyone with small children. It really is a vacation for the whole family."
Sarieta, Mallorca - Clarke, June 2015
"Adam (chef) was exceptional with the variety and quality of his food. This vacation has been one of the finest regarding our meals. He was also very personable when discussing our food choices for the day and was very attentive. Egle (host) is fantastic at looking after your every need. She made us feel welcome from the moment we walked through the door and always found a way to put a smile on our face. Natalie (nanny) was everything we could have asked for in a nanny. This is our first vacation with our son (five months old) and we were a tiny bit cautious at first, that was a BIG mistake. She was absolutely superb with him and thinking outside the box to find keep him occupied throughout each day."
La Vinya, Mallorca - Kelly, June 2015
"Ione Matt and Elllie are an absolutely first class team. Matt is an outstanding chef - cooks brilliantly and offers a wide choice of appetising food for all three meals, and is quietly very simpatico. Ione is highly industrious, highly efficient, highly attentive and engaging. Neither Matt nor Ione could be bettered. Ellie has been extremely good in every way - properly watchful properly kind and affectionate with our granddaughter. She also has a happily quiet simpatico personality admirably suited to fit in and be a frequently constant presence with our family. All three made a significant contribution to our happy and memorable week."
Las Palmeras, Mallorca - Lester, June 2015
"We had another super vacation at Las Palmeras - only complaint was it was not long enough! The team - Rosie, Sophie & Megan - were all amazing, we were so well looked after. We were particularly impressed with Rosie and the engagement she had with the children and the care over their food. Given their ages & how fussy toddlers can be, she catered brilliantly for them and they ate really well. Definitely on for another Scott Dunn vacation next year if not before!"
Bastide des Virettes, South of France - Keach, June 2015
"Jenny gave our baby amazing care. She was professional and so warm and
energetic in her approach to childcare, without overstepping. I did not think I
would have been able to leave my baby with a stranger but with Jenny I was
very confident, she truly made our vacation amazing. Rosie was professional,
friendly and courteous - we could not have asked for more. Graham's cooking
was sensational, we did not expect such a high standard and every meal was
memorable. We know we will be disappointed by restaurants for the rest of
our trip! Every dinner was outstanding and we especially loved Graham's duck and the scallops dish."
Luminx, South of France - Jones, June 2015
"Sam, our chef, was highly inventive with highly personalized and excellent food. Amandine made sure we didn't lift a finger and everything was just right. The care, attention to detail and focus on making sure we were happy means we'd definitely recommend Scott Dunn."
El Noveno, Mallorca - Grosvenor, May 2015
"Heather and George were amazing, we'd like to stay or take them home with us! Food was superb thank you Heather and George's attention to detail was incredible - things were done for you before you even realised you wanted it done."
Las Palmeras, Mallorca - Lazenby, May 2015
"Your staff in Majorca are a credit to you. They are the difference between a good vacation and an excellent one. We had an excellent one. Becky, Sophie, Rosie and Megan could not have been more helpful in everything they did.
They were all absolutely first rate."
La Perriere, South of France - MK, August 2014
"Graham's cooking has been simply fantastic - creative, subtle and always of the highest quality. Far higher quality than we imagined when we booked. Rosie has been a thoughtful and always cheerful host and made us feel very much at ease from the outset. Claire has made a huge effort to make sure our daughter has enjoyed the break as much as we have - we've felt very comfortable leaving her in Claire's care. The view from the villa is stunning, and we were lucky to see a fireworks display over St Paul one evening after dinner. But what really made the vacation for us was the quality of the service provided."
El Noveno, Mallorca - RJ, July 2014
"We were absolutely delighted with our vacation and the staff made it. Having been to a French chateau last year where the owner looked after us and had a Michelin star to his name, my husband and I unanimously agreed that our chef's food was far better and much more creative. Our nanny deserved a medal. Built a rapport within minutes with the twins and they had a lovely time with her. On the few occasions we went out, they couldn't wait to get back to her. We were particularly appreciative of our villa manager accompanying my husband to the dentist to make sure he got there ok and there were no language barriers with the dentist. This really was going the extra mile."
Can Totxa, Mallorca - SM, June 2014
"Rachel, Sergio and Becky were all fantastic. The food and service was amazing and Becky had loads of ideas to entertain the boys and was very patient with a temperamental toddler. It was the most relaxing vacation we have ever had as parents and far exceeded our expectations. Wish we had thought of it sooner."
