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.
It’s suitable for both families and couples looking to get away from it all but it also has all necessary amenities close by.
Pets are normally welcome but please ask!
The interior design is calm and comfortable and there is plenty of seating in both the lounge and dining rooms for up to 10 people.
There a large (46”/116cms) LED smart TV, unlimited WiFi internet access and French cable TV which has a selection of foreign channels including BBC World and CNN.
Kitchen is well equipped with all you will need for your holiday cooking.
Outdoors there is a relaxing undercover area for al fresco dining and an outdoor lounge setting from where you can enjoy the wonderful views. The elevated position of the villa allows it to enjoy the afternoon breezes.
There is a large pool (can be solar heated at the beginning and the end of the season - please ask) equipped with a pool alarm, sun loungers, pool house with awning and gas BBQ. The garden is terraced, has many different areas for children to run around and it has an olive grove with about 40 olive trees.
Villa suits 2 - 10 guests and it is a great place for family and friends to spend a relaxing holiday on the Cote d’Azur. In the villa there is a comprehensive guide we have put together listing numerous sporting and cultural activities in the region for all ages and interests.
"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.
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.
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.
