Villa Lorraine is very conveniently located in the quaint Provençal village of Opio, a five minute drive away from Valbonne. It ‘s a great property in which to spend a peaceful and memorable holiday as it offers tranquillity, has panoramic views of the sea and surrounding country side and it is very private.

About Lynda Richards
We moved to this area in 1999 and never left! The region has lots to offer for a family in all seasons and has a great mix of interesting people. We have two children and work in the area.
Lynda Richards purchased this villa in 2011
Why Lynda Richards chose Opio
This villa has great views, has a very well thought out, functional layout both inside and outside and it is very private. However, it is still close to schools, shops and local amenities. We also love the garden and all the olive trees. After looking for the perfect villa for 18 months we fell in love with Villa Lorraine immediately.
What makes this villa unique
Sunshine all day, an elevated position overlooking the woods and to the sea. It's also very peaceful, private and relaxing but within easy reach of Antibes, Nice, Canes and Monaco.
The lively village of Valbonne is a 5 minute drive away.
Guestbook comments from the owner
"Perfect house with perfect hosts in a perfect location!"
We had the pleasure of spending 5 nights in Villa Lorraine in mid-October together with our two children, 10 and 14 years old, and we couldn't have enjoyed our stay more. The house is located in a very peaceful setting with a splendid view over the surrounding olive trees all the way to the sea, only 20 mins from the coast and with grocery shops and restaurants close by in the surrounding villages of Valbonne, Opio and Le Rouret. The house is large enough to comfortably sleep far larger parties than ours and is also very well equipped, notably with a kitchen that allows you to quickly feel at ease and with up to date electronic equipment, including Wifi working throughout the house. The fact that you can sit outside both sheltered under a roof (ideal for this time of year or for providing shade in the summer) or fully out in the open next to the summer kitchen (which, with its large gas BBQ is more than just for summer) provides an ideal combination.
Lynda and Chris were great hosts and our only regret was that our stay was too short, and it is with great pleasure that we would return again.
