CHIC, LUMINOUS FAMILY VILLA WITH ENDLESS VIEWS OF BAY + COAST

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday villa in Villefranche-sur-Mer - Villa Hippocampo

4 Bedrooms, 4 Bathrooms, Sleeps 9

The property is a luxurious modern home available for weekly rental in the charming village of Villefranche on the Côte d’Azur just outside of Nice.

The 200 sq. m., multi-level house, completed 2010, is set in an ideal location overlooking Villefranche Bay, the orange-tiled roofs of the old town and St. Jean Cap Ferrat. Villefranche-Sur-Mer, with its colorful waterfront and many restaurants, is a minute's drive by car, or a 5--minute walk down a public stairway terraced into the hillside.

Features include a gourmet kitchen, heated infinity pool, and terraces affording stunning views of the Mediterranean. Four separate bedroom suites, each with its own en suite bathroom, provide vacationers flexibility and privacy in their sleeping arrangements. An additional room featuring a huge window looking literally into the pool may be used for sleeping or as a play area.

Suitability:
  • Events Allowed
  • wheelchair inaccessible
  • pets not allowed
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only

We just wanted to tell you how much we loved our trip! Your house made it all possible. We just fell in love with your spot directly in the middle of the bay. WOW! I understand why you chose such a magnificent space to build your dream house. Everything in the house has been planned and each room has its own style. With the spectacular view in the living room and kitchen while cooking, again wow. It all feels like a dream now back into reality!

We have been doing a lot of promotion for you about the house here with our friends in Québec. We loved it so much that we might come back in the next year.

Thanks again for the basket of delicacies that you put in the house and the Fragonard product. Really considerate of you!

It's been a pleasure.

Our wonderful spring break at Villa Hippocampo!

Dear Sage,
My family just got back from Villefranche and the Villa Hippocampo and I had to write.  The weather (which has apparently been very rainy until recently,) could not have been better.  The views from the villa—from every room, are exquisite.  It is at least as fun to stay home as to get out and site see.  The beaches-- which we walked to easily—were filled with locals happy to celebrate spring.  We ate on the many terraces at the house and even took advantage of the pool, even though it was a bit chilly (we decided not to have them heat it, but should have.) It was great for all of us-- me, my husband, and twin eight year olds.  We’ll be back next year for Spring Break.

I wanted to thank you for introducing us to Villa Hippocampo.  Because it is a new property, we were a bit nervous to rent it sight unseen.  We could not have been happier.  It is brand new, with very tasteful and high quality furnishings.  The location just can’t be beat.  We drove to Nice, Cannes, Antibes, St. Paul du Vence, and Mougin for short morning or afternoon trips—they were that close.  One day, we drove 1.5 hours into the mountains and there was still snow.  We could have gone skiing! Another day, we drove to Monaco (only 20 minutes) and then on to Italy in time for the weekly market day in Ventimiglia. On our rest days, we just walked to town, relaxed at the beach and seaside restaurants.

Villefranche as against St. Jean Cap Ferrat

  • Review Submitted: 20-Apr-2011
  • Date of Stay: Feb 2011
Before you get taken in about renting a villa in the midst of the “beautiful people” of St. Jean Cap Ferrat, do some research on Villefranche-sur-Mer. I have rented in St. Jean for the past ten years, but finally gave Villefranche a try. Perhaps it was because of the glorious villa (Villa Hippocampo) we rented with unbeatable views (including all of the houses we rented in St. Jean Cap Ferrat) or perhaps it was because the weather was amazing for the winter months or perhaps it was because my kids were so mesmerized by the “cool pool” at the villa whose side wall is a window to the lower floor video room, but we had our best winter vacation ever. Villefranche is more accessible, more friendly, and interesting than St. Jean Cap Ferrat which is beautiful but limited, especially since all of the estates are walled off and not visible to outsiders. Try renting a kayak in Villefranche Harbor, taking a tour of the old castle and fort, rummaging through the small outdoor antique and food market on Saturdays, or hopping on a train to just about anywhere on the coast in either direction without worrying about parking. We were two related families—five adults and two children who travel together each winter. It was ideal. Thank you!
