Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday villa in Royan area - Villa Ocean View
2 min walk to the beach, 5 bedrooms, 10 persons, 2 big terraces, garden
This elegant, newly renovated villa designed by a famous architect from Paris provides every luxury in absolutely central yet peaceful location. Enjoy the beautiful view of the wide open sea in the mornings and the light house 'Phare des Corduan' on the horizon (you can peacefully lie on your designer bed and open only your eyes). The bathrooms, maintained in the finest marble and furnished elegantly, will also contribute in making you feel good just like the kitchen, which entices you to have a leisurely breakfast. The 2 big terraces, or balcony, and also the beautiful garden with its shady old trees invite you to enjoy outside. Even the large roofed terrace with outdoor shower invites you for a sunbath near the beach. Then in the evenings while barbecuing you can admire sunset over the sea and the view of Royan skyline and its harbour. Alternatively many restaurants on the beach, harbour, or in the city centre are reachable by a walk.
The villa was built by a famous Paris architect in the beginning of the 60's and is used as a recreation home. It lies in the residential area 'Le Parc', which is regarded as the most exclusive and most popular parts of the Royan city. You can reach the city centre and the harbour with many restaurants and shops, the famous “Marché”and numerous cultural events easily within 10 minutes walk. The park also has a private market (3min walk), where fruit dealers, vegetable and meat vendors sell their products fresh every morning. There is also a grocery, bakery, kiosk, café, hairdresser, etc.
The building here consists partly of restored houses from the '20s with its unique style and somewhat modern villas, constructed in the '60s, all of them situated right behind the main beach of Royan, which is over 2km long.
The villa was built on an elevation facing the sea. Therefore there is a beautiful view of the sea from anywhere on the front side of the villa. The approx. 70m2 big roofed terrace provides a spectacular view of the ocean (the most famous light house of France Phare de Corduan is in the background, beautiful to see), the harbour, the city or the countryside at the back. You can also obviously enjoy the sun till late evening and after that possibly have a pleasant experience dining in an atmosphere, which no restaurant can provide. If you want some shade, there are a lot of cosy corners in the partially natural garden with its full-grown old trees. In front of the living area downstairs there is another large terrace, approx. 20m2, where you can peacefully relax undisturbed.
The front is facing south west, so that the rooms are flooded with natural light and are bright throughout the day. However you can reduce it a little bit or darken completely with the help of the exclusive window blinds. There are many advantages because of its position in the second row from the sea. Although the beach with its promenade is just 100m away, you can enjoy absolute peace and tranquillity. You can take a sunbath on the roofed terrace in absolutely privacy as it can not be seen from outside (there are enough sun loungers available). The sun shines all through the day on the terrace. You can also clamp a big parasol, if you want some shade. This place is simply wonderful, as unlike on the beach, often there is gentle breeze, which also makes the sunbath extremely pleasant. There is also a shower room on the terrace that will help in cooling yourself in between. A special experience is to make use of mornings and enjoy a wonderful view of the sea while taking a shower (of course there is also hot water).
Both the top and the bottom level terraces have a large built-in wooden charcoal grill, so that you can choose to sit with the panoramic view or in the countryside amidst the ancient trees. The terrace below is partly roofed, in case it rains, it is still possible to barbecue. Thus throughout the day it always has shade area, where you can make yourself comfortable in the hammock.
Very recently the house was completely renewed inside and also restored on the outside close to the original, so that you can enjoy new and modern building technology in a timeless, classic ambience.
The villa obviously has a modern gas heater, so that you can feel comfortable during any time of the year. The open fireplace additionally provides a comfortable atmosphere.
