Overview

Overview

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday villa in Cagnes-sur-Mer - Villa Adorable

5 Bedrooms And 5 Baths, Overlooking The Mediterranean

Villa Adorable is a luxury home, newly renovated and redecorated stone farmhouse. The house is from the 17th century, and ones served as a Clementine grove. The villa is embedded in a large garden on 5 levels, with a swimming pool, several outdoor eating areas, and table tennis. It even has a private Pétanque area.

There are 5 bedrooms, all with private bathrooms. There is the possibility to sleep a couple of more children, in the house. We have a bunk bed, a sleeping couch and a baby bed. But 10-12 adults, 2-4 children and a baby, is a definitive maximum for the house.

The two top floor bedrooms are air-conditioned. The others are on the ground floor, so less warm, but equipped with fans. From the living room, you enter the garden and an amazing terrace overlooking the Mediterranean and the different levels in the garden. Here, as in some of the other rooms, there is a fireplace.

The dining-room area, is next to an open style kitchen, and also opens up to the terrace.

As the house is located on many levels, it is very easy to retire and find privacy, if you are 2 families. Villa Adorable is perfect for 2 families and can actually house 3 families if necessary. Moreover, the garden offers many private areas, where you individually can find peace and calmness, while others are floating around the pool or playing pétanque, or maybe someone is cooking a pizza in our outdoor pizza-oven, probably one of our favourite things to do in the family.

About Nicolai Henckel

Our familiy lives in Denmark, Copenhagen. We are a family of 5. We have our own business - www.youheshe.com - primarily selling designer clothing online. We have been coming to Haut de Cagnes, since 2002. And fell in love with this part of the Riviera - mainly due to its incredible charm and seduction, its calmness and the very authenticity that the main square offers - Chateau de Grimaldi.

We have decided to open our house up for rentals, and share the preciousness of our Villa Adorable. Once opening our house up for rental, we do ask our renters to respect our property, and treat it as if it was your own. Renting out our home, was not an easy decision, but since we do not have enough time to enjoy the house, we thought we better share the oasis with others.

Nicolai Henckel purchased this villa in 2007

Why Nicolai Henckel chose Cagnes-sur-Mer

We fell in love with the village a long time ago, mostly because our family had been vacationing the village for many years. We first bought a house there in 2004, and we fast became intrigued by the charm of the architecture of the village. However, we wanted to have a house that could offer more outdoor living, and we were missing a swimming pool.

We then found Villa Adorable, and fell in love immediately. The house offers many spectacular things and hide aways. Villa Adorable is located on a hilly side, and therefore spreads over 4 levels. The garden area is very beautiful and has many different settings, there is a fig tree, a clementine groves, olives trees, beautiful flowers and many other indescribable hidden treasures.

What makes this villa unique

Mostly because of the amazing garden the sea view and incredible charm of the house and the possibilities it offered. The many levels the ground is located on, makes it very unique and cannot be described with the proper words. Only experiencing this at first hand will get you closer to the uniqueness of our Villa Adorable.

We love it

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed one week in Villa Adorable: the whole family with our four adult children and one baby. Everything was fine.
We've never had such a great location. The villa is wonderful and lovely decorated.The garden is marvelous, just like a green jungle with so many places to rest for a while. The pool with its largeness is great. With the pool and the Ping-pong we have had a lot of fun in the garden. And cooking in the summerkitchen and dining in the garden in the evening was very spectacular. The garden could be illuminated with many lights.
Haute Cagne is a beautiful medival village. A short walk in the evening and you find good restaurants on top of the village with a spectaculous view.
And the owner Nicolas Henkel ist very polite.
Thank you very much for this wonderful stay.
Villa Adoralbe, we love it!

Great villa with wonderful garden

  • 5 out of 5
Amazing villa where you can stay in a privacy. The property is very clean, furniture is beautiful. Great views! You can find everything you need even the wooden oven. The pool is really big and clean, you can stay under the sun as well as in the shadow near the pool. The garden is wonderful and big, you can escape and stay alone there. We were with 4 month baby, owner provided cot for her, it's very comfortable. It's very nice place for the baby - quiet and calming. We've stayed only for one week and there was no wish to go out. Although the upper city is very cute and nice. You can reach see by foot just in 15 min, the beach is nice with good restaurants. Big market with everything you wish in 5 min by foot. You can easy reach Nice, Cannes, Monaco with the car but you can also use the train - much quicker and there is no need to find parking place. Adorable is the place you'll wish to come back! Thanks to Rosanna, she was helpful! And many thanks to the owner Nicolai!

We loved it!!!

  • 5 out of 5
The house was so beautiful with many bedrooms and bathrooms, the garden and the pool lovely and we really enjoyed the summer kitchen with it's grill and wood fired pizza owen since we are passionate about cooking and good food and travelling with children it's sometimes nice to spend evenings cooking outside with fresh french incredients and sipping wine when the children are sleeping well after playing in the pool. The old village of Haut de Cagnes was really adorable with scenic views from it's restaurants. And the location was excellent, so close to Nice and the airport.

Magical Villa, Wonderful Holiday

  • 5 out of 5
We loved our time at Villa Adorable. From the moment we first spoke with owner to our checkout, our experience was excellent and we hope to return again and again. The ample space made it the perfect spot for a family's reunion, allowing for both children and grandparents and their varying sleep/activity needs to happily co-exist. The grounds are truly lovely and very expansive. The scent of flowers greeted every morning and accompanied us at the pool, while we dined al fresco, and during butterfly catching in the grass. The kitchen is well-equipped, with Global knives, a nespresso coffee-maker, gas stove, etc... such that we easily enjoyed cooking for ourselves most nights, so we did not check out many local restaurants this visit. The daily market in Cagnes sur Mer -- an easy walk down the hill -- offered fresh produce and fish and we enjoyed taking the advice of its vendors, who were ready with cooking recommendations and information on their products. Definitely ask the soap/tea vendor inside the market for the recommended herbal tea for iced tea. A red, hibiscus blend, it is far beyond any we've known before and became a favorite pool-side beverage. The we visited were by accidental circumstance (e.g. the sudden hunger of jet lag warranted stopping in) and, for the most part, without note. The ice cream/crepe restaurant at the end of the square in Haut des Cagnes is wonderful though -- try their pistachio ice cream. The house had everything we needed, including things we would not have imagined wanting: not only a perfectly heated and landscaped pool, but also fun pool toys for the kids; not only an outdoor pizza over, but also a BBQ, sink, dishwasher, and additional set of dishes right beside it (we didn't end up using this, but could imagine doing so next time); not only a secure garage, but a bathroom within it; not only beach towels, but also boogies boards, sand buckets, etc... Guidebooks may not extoll the virtues of Cagnes sur Mer as highly as other locations along the Cote d'Azur, but it is no matter, really. The villa is a perfectly placed oasis between Cagnes sur Mer and Haut des Cagnes, with easy access to roads to other famed towns nearby. Good bus/train service too. The walk up the hill to Haut des Cagnes is charming and we enjoyed visiting a dear friend in Nice. But, frankly, as we were here for a long-awaited family reunion, we found all we needed at Villa Adorable and saved touristing the region for our next visit.

Owner's Response: I truly appreciate the kind review of our property. What I would like to do maybe, because of what you wrote, is to have a guide booklet, with guests comments on what they have found intersting during their stay, and of course with our recommendations for various things. Such as, the best beach club with kids, best sushi restaurant, best pizza restaurant, where to buy groceries, and so forth.
What would you think if we offer to go grocery shopping for the initial needs of a family, so when they arrive they would not have to stress about this and would be able to enjoy their arrival fully.
Again thanks a lot for staying at our house, and hope sincerely to be able to welcome you again in the future..
Best regards,
Nicolai Henckel

Villa Adorable is located only a few minutes from the medieval village of Haut de Cagnes and the medieval castle once owned by the Grimaldi dynasty (the Royal family of Monaco). Haut de Cagnes is a cosy village and has been maintained successfully over the years and offers an alternative to the concrete of the modern French Riviera.

The district of Le Haut-de-Cagnes was listed as a historical site in 1948. It has held on to the calm atmosphere of a village with its history-laden stones, its shady, narrow streets decorated with flowers, and its unique viewpoints over the Mediterranean.

A number of artists, in love with the Mediterranean light, settled down in this pretty village known as 'The Montmartre of the Côte d’Azur'. The village also attracted celebrities from the universe of the arts and theatre until the 1960s.

Know artists and writers are; Renoir, Soutine, Klein, Foujita, Modigliani, Derain, Georges Simenon, John Lewis, Brigitte Bardot and Greta Garbo. Most of whom had either lived here or vacation for a longer period of time.

There is a free shuttle (Navette) that will take you through the village of Haut de Cagnes, and ends up at the local square in Cagnes sur Mer, very close to various shopping possibilities, like the supermarket Casino. Maybe a little more interesting is the market - Les commerçants de la Cité Marchande, which is open from Monday to Thursday from 7.30 until 13 and Friday from 730 – 19, where locals from the surrounding areas sell there home grown vegetables and products. The shuttle is very convenient if you have a lot of groceries to carry or if you are with kids in strollers, as you will be able to travel all the way up to the famous ”Place de la Chateau”, in Haut de Cagnes.

Villa Adorable is located very conveniently, as we are very close to Haut de Cagnes, yet also very close to the shopping that Cagnes sur Mer offers.

Villa Adorable is very close to many various things; Nice Airport 15 min, Antibes 15 min, Cannes 25 min, Juan les Pins 20 min, several golf courses within 1 hour drive - closet being Biot Golf, shopping for groceries only 5 minutes away on foot.
