Overview

Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday villa in St-Paul-de-Vence - Nice Pebbles: La Sittelle

5 Bedrooms, 4 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8

This ultra classy unassuming villa is quite simply perfect. Beautifully designed, every possible comfort is provided for underfloor heating in the outdoor patios, sliding doors that make the most of the glorious Mediterranean weather, outdoor pizza oven and barbecue for family fun, and a glorious pool with a poolside shower.

This is Riviera indoor-outdoor living at its best! Get ready for a picture perfect holiday to remember!

Floor/Building

The villa is in its own large grounds with pretty manicured lawns, flowering plants, trees and a 10m x 5m heated swimming pool and heated outside pool terrace.

There is an electronic gate on entrance , space for two cars and large pathway to the front entrance.

The villa was re-designed by Robert Dallas four years ago. Robert Dallas designs concentrate on maintaining a traditional provence feel, whilst ensuring every aspect of modern living is catered for. There are vaulted ceilings, reclaimed wooden beams and reclaimed clay rooftops which all results in a first class, yet unassuming villa.

Neighbourhood

Set 10 minutes walk from the centre of St-Paul-de-Vence, the villa is set in a quiet residential domaine. A 5 minute drive will bring you to St-Paul-de-Vence village with its famous restaurants and art galleries.

Living Area

A large area with French windows that slide into the walls should you wish to benefit from more space and enjoy the outside inside. Perfect for lazy evenings.

There are two large cream leather sofas that can seat six, a large wooden coffee table, a large monochrome rug and plenty of lamps and simplistic modern soft furnishings. The vaulted ceiling, wooden beams, inset bookcases with hardback classic books and fireplace, with log fire and chimney marry the traditional with the modern.

For entertainment there is a 42-inch television with French TNT channels, a home cinema system with sound bar.

If guests decide to take advantage of the outside area just off the living area, then there are eight sun loungers, drinks tables and a love seat on the patio area off the living room. Guests can choose to enjoy this area separate to the living area, or adjoined by sliding back the patio doors. If guests decide to separate the areas, then there are two Diakin air-conditioning units for guests' comfort.

Kitchen

As you would expect from a villa of this calibre, there is no expense spared in the fixtures and fittings and guests can enjoy ample workspace provided by the marble worktop and all amenities including two ovens, a large gas hob and griddle, microwave, large American fridge freezer with ice-maker and a washing machine and tumble dryer.

There is ample room for casual and formal dining at the large table that seats six, or for a full sit down meal the table in the loggia outside (with underfloor heating if necessary) seats twelve.

The dining area looks out onto the garden at one side and the pool and loggia area at the other.

Bedrooms

The master bedroom makes up the whole of the first floor. It has a King Size bed with bedside drawers, a large chest of drawers and double wardrobe, all in a silver finish. Leading off from the master bedroom is a large patio area with plenty of space for sun loungers. Perfect if you prefer to soak up the sun in the privacy of your own terrace, or enjoy watching the sun set with evening cocktails.

Also off the master bedroom is a large en-suite bathroom with bath and shower attachment, separate shower, large built-in vanity unit with double wash basins.

There is a separate WC next to the bathroom.

The other four bedrooms are on the ground floor, two with en-suites, and two sharing one large bathroom. All of these bedrooms have double beds with bedside lamps, drawers and built in wardrobes. Three of the bedrooms have French windows with shutters leading onto the manicured gardens.

Please note that although there are five double bedrooms, we can only accommodate a maximum of eight guests at the villa.

Bathroom

The four full bathrooms, three being en-suite and one servicing two of the five bedrooms, are all tiled in the Robert Dallas signature hand-crafted tiles.

The master en-suite on the first floor is tiled in grey, the two en-suites downstairs in mustard and dusky pink and the larger bathroom that services the two other bedrooms in lilac.

All the bathrooms have built in vanity units with ceramic wash basins and plenty of storage, walk in showers, toilets and baths.

There is a separate WC in the hallway.

Guestbook comments from the manager

As our second visit to Provence comes to its inevitable close, we reflect on the outstanding beauty, stunning scenery and friendliness of the whole area. Add to this the fabulous weather and the magnificent food and wines on offer and what else would you want in life. The answer is probably a great villa. Well we found one – its name is La Sittelle, which means “beautiful spot” or “beautiful area” and it truly lives up to its name. Located just outside St Paul Du Vence it is quite simply stunning. On arrival we were amazed by its size and style, entering through electronically controlled security gates into the parking area. If first impressions were good, then entering the villa simply takes your breath away. A large hall way leads to a huge, bright lounge with high beamed ceiling, wide leather sofa's, and big wide screen television with separate sound system, backed up with many videos and games for the kids (where required). For those who like a quiet read around the pool, the room also boasts a large library of books all superbly bound and offering a wide range of subjects (must have cost a small fortune for some of the leather bound books).

The lounge leads to a light and very modern, nicely furnished kitchen and dining area with a large American style fridge offering cold water and crushed or cubed ice on demand. The doors of the dining room open up completely along the length of two walls and lead to the outside eating area, large patio and the superb pool with comfortable beds alongside. The area also supports an excellent BBQ facility along with an outdoor wine / beer cooler/fridge, both of which were well used on many occasions over our holiday (mosquito's can be a bit of a nuisance at times – use some protective spray/cream – it certainly helps). The beautiful gardens and large grassed area were well maintained and between the trees, offered fabulous views over the valley towards St Paul Du Vence. Bedrooms were very good, air conditioned and of the five available, three had on suite bathrooms, with the other two side by side sharing a very nice bathroom and shower facilities.

Location

Location

Set 10 minutes walk from the centre of St-Paul-de-Vence, the villa is set in a quiet residential domain. A 5 minute drive will bring you to St-Paul-de-Vence village with its famous restaurants and art galleries.

From the Airport

Most guests would hire a car or take a taxi to arrive at this villa. Taxi ranks are easily found at all terminals and once inside will take around 30 minutes to reach your apartment. Please see our transport page for more information. Ensure that you have the full address of the property ready to show the driver. Alternatively, you can take a bus from the airport to St Paul de Vence. To do this, you must take a bus from the airport to the centre of Nice, and then change buses. Bus number 98 leaves from Terminal 1, and costs 6€ per person. Take this bus to Cathedrale – Vieille Ville and head across the road from there to Station JC Bermond where you can take bus number 400 to St Paul de Vence Le s Fumerates, which is approximately a 10 minute walk from the apartment. If you do not have heavy luggage, you can walk from the airport to the Nice Saint Augustin train station, which takes about 15 minutes. The airport has a free shuttle bus from each terminal that can take you to a stop called Arenas, which makes the walk to airport significantly less. From there, you can take an SNCF train to St Paul de Vence. The nearest train station is Cagnes sur Mer. The train that stops here is the Cannes / Grasse train, which departs Nice every half hour. Taxis can be found just outside the main entrance of the train station. See the train section below for more information. Visit our transport page for more information, routes and timetables.

From the Train Station

If you are coming to St Paul de Vence from somewhere else in France, we recommend you take an SNCF train to Cagnes sur Mer as this is the nearest train station. Most TGV trains however will not stop here. In this case, you should stay on the train until Gare Nice Ville, and then change to the Cannes / Grasse line, which will stop here. Visit our transport page for more information, routes and timetables. Taxis can be found at the entrance of the train station and will take approximately 20 minutes by taxi. Unfortunately, it is too far to walk to the villa from this station.

By Car

We strongly recommend a recent map or GPS navigation system to help you, though the journey is quite straightforward. We will send you a GPS reference and full address with your arrival details. This private gated property has space for 2 – 3 cars at the residence. Being a residential area, there are no public parking facilities near the villa.
