If you are seeking a charming home with character in a quiet location with wonderful views yet close to a beautiful village and all the sites and sounds of the Riviera, then Jasmin Villa could be the perfect choice for you!
About the location: Our much-loved holiday home is situated in an exclusive, gated, hilltop domaine of private one bedroom and two bedroom residences. It was formerly a hotel and in it's hey day competed with the Columbe D'Or! It is located in a prime but quiet semi-rural position on the Cote D’Azur between Nice & Antibes yet only 10 minutes drive from the airport and just 15-20 minutes walk to the stunning medieval village of St Paul de Vence. Domaine du Piol has a lot of history and character and enjoys an elevated position surrounded by woodland with views over the valley below. There is a large, shared pool which gets the sun all day. It is just around the corner from the villa but out of sight. The location of the villa is private, quiet and secure. There is only one other villa adjoining it and a small apartment out of sight, beside the pool.
About the property (outside) : Jasmin villa has a small private garden of jasmin (French spelling), lemon trees and flowers. A private balcony and upper terrace offer unsurpassed views up to the village of St Paul and the mountains behind. There is plenty of outside space ideal for enjoying a meal, sunbathing or relaxing in the shade. Both the terrace and garden are paved and have wrought iron tables and chairs. The location of the villa is private and quiet. There is only one other villa adjoining it and a small apartment out of sight, beside the pool.

Why Janet Hamilton chose St-Paul-de-Vence
My husband and I fell in love with this property when we first rented it in 2005 and were thrilled when it came up for sale several years later. The views up to the beautiful village of St Paul de Vence are breath-taking and there's nothing we enjoy more than sitting on the terrace or in the garden savouring the views of the village and mountains and enjoying its very beautiful and peaceful green surroundings. The villa is located in a historic domaine which feels rather like a little hamlet. It has a lot of character and charm. We are fortunate on the domaine to have a large, beautiful pool with lovely views right down the hillside to the sea. The domaine enjoys a fantastic elevated position and is surrounded by woodland. Despite its semi-rural location all the delights of the Riviera are only a short drive away.
What makes this house unique
Without doubt the views of St Paul de Vence are very special and we guarantee will capture your heart! The villa is situated in a very peaceful and private location surrounded by woodland. The large communal swimming pool is right around the corner - just a short stroll from the villa. We have taken great pride in renovating the villa in a delightful provencal style with lovely pieces sourced from the local brocantes and antique markets. We take pride in presenting our villa to a high standard and we hope we have thought of everything to ensure that our guests stay is as comfortable and pleasant as possible. We have many returning guests - which is a good sign that we must be doing something right!
