Overview

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday villa in Opio - Villa Lorraine

4 bedrooms 3 bathrooms plus WC

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.

Additional services available from September to June:

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.

Beautiful villa, great location, nice landscape

  • 5 out of 5
We are so lucky that we could spend two weeks in this very nice villa. The house is comfortable for two families. We were 9 person, incl. 5 children. The children enjoyed the pool very much, the parents enjoyed the house. And we all enjoyed the BBQ in the pool house, the landscape and the peaceful location. The coast is within 20 min drive, many sightseeing possibilities within a 60 min drive in the nearest cities. We enjoyed also the golf and tennis possibilities near to the villa. The every morning breakfast in the big terrace remain as an unforgettable keepsake. I was running every morning to the boulangerie in Le Rouret to provide for the families fresh croissant and baguette. It was a very healthy action to run more than 100 km under the nice trees.
Lynda and Chris were really great hosts and helped us in any case of questions.

We recommend honest for everyone this villa who wants to have a relaxed and peaceful holiday !

It doesn't get better than this!

It doesn't get better than this!
  • 5 out of 5
The only bad thing about this wonderful villa is having to leave at the end of your stay! The lovely owners, Chris and Lynda, make you feel so welcome and nothing is too much trouble for them. The gas bottle on the BBQ was feeling light as though it was running out and having sent an email to let them know, it was refreshed before the day was out! The furnishings and items within the villa are all good quality and you want for nothing. The pool is great - well kept and so sparklingly clean. The outside under cover area is where we spent every evening - we dined at the large table, then moved across to the comfortable seating until bedtime. I don't think we could ever tire of that perfect view out to sea. We are very fussy people and cannot fault this idyllic villa - it's perfect. Well done to Chris and Lynda! I would recommend this villa to anyone and although there were only two of us, I can see that with the bedrooms being spread over three floors, a larger family or 2-3 couples could have privacy and space to get away from others quite easily. Brilliant.

Very nice holiday home near Mediterranean coast

  • 5 out of 5
This holiday home can easily accommodate 10 persons. It's very spacious, modern, clean and bright. The views to the Mediterranean coast and the surrounding olive terraces are spectacular. It will take you around 20 minutes by car to get to Cannes, Nice or St Paul de Vence. Grasse is about 10 minutes. The house has a heated private swimming pool. In the garden you will find typical Southern French plants, trees and flowers as well as a swing and a tree house. The friendly owners of the property are English/Australian and live nearby.

Fantastic villa to unwind and relax

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed here as part of our European Holiday and it was very easy to book and organise from Australia.
A beautiful villa – fantastic place to unwind and relax.
We loved the outdoor spaces where we could eat and take in the views of the sea, listen to the birds and take in the smells of the local woods.
Secluded – very private and peaceful with lovely views to the coast.
Close to all amenities – 5 mins to Opio, 10 mins to Valbonne, 20 minutes to the coast.
The villa is really comfortably furnished throughout. The practical layout means we never felt we were on top of anyone else as the bedrooms are on three different levels.
Fantastic outdoor areas for dining and having bbq’s.
The swimming pool is lovely and has an alarm which we appreciated, having younger children.
Reading the comprehensive guide on what to do in the area was enjoyable and made us want to return to see more places and try more restaurants!
Our stay gave us a great introduction to the area.
Many thanks to our hosts for their hospitality.

RELAXING, PEACEFUL VILLA - EXPLORE COTE D’AZUR

  • 5 out of 5
Stayed in this villa with two families and one set of grandparents.

Layout was ideal as bedrooms are on three different levels. Sitting room is large but has a cosy lounge.


LOVED THE 2 different OUTDOOR EATING AREAS AND pool is a really good size.


Views are magnificent and area is super quiet. Villa is really conveniently located so it easy to get to all those well known places like Valbonne, Cannes and Monaco.


Hosts have put together a fantastic guide book with lots of ideas for places to visit and eat at.


We will be back to do more sight seeing and eat at the fabulous restaurants that are in this area.
