We will definitely be back and will recommend villa CAROLA to our families and friends. Gretel, Micha, Katrin, Annegret, Stefan and Juliana from Wien, Austria

Comments from clients: Simply wonderful! We were absolutely speechless when we arrived. The view is gorgeous! 1 week was definitely to short since there is so much to see! St. Paul is only 10 minutes away on foot what a beautiful village and the sea is in very easy reach. Bettina thank you for your suggestion to take the children for a day out at the Marineland in Biot. They were absolutely thrilled and still talk about the shark tunnel and the dolphin shows.

We definitely plan to come back next year. Family Kehricht from Frankfurt, Germany

Comments from clients: Was great! Thank you Bettina! The villa is 1 A, super big. We had a smashing time. The pool was great and weather perfect. We'll book 2 weeks next time.

Amazing views

  • 5 of 5

Bettina went out of her way to make us feel welcome in this villa with amazing views, particularly of St Paul de Vence. The villa was as pictured, with all the amenities one could possibly need for a relaxing and memorable stay. There was more than ample space for our family of 2 adults and 5 children, and plenty to keep us occupied. We had a car, which I think is needed as the closest supermarket and bakery is a short drive away. St Paul de Vence is likewise a short drive away from the villa. Overall, we had a fabulous tstay at Villa Carola. Our only regret was that we couldn't stay longer! Thank you Bettina!

Stunning views amidst poolside bliss -- addictive!

  • 5 of 5

This was our family's first visit to the South of France, and villa CAROLA certainly played a significant role in persuading us to schedule a return visit...and soon.

Nestled discretely on the hillside and securely behind two sets of gates protecting the drive, the home is perfectly sited to capture a full day's worth of southern exposure. The pool and luxurious deck were serious contenders for all of our attention, much to the potential dismay of Cannes, Nice, Monaco, Antibes, Cap Ferat, Vence, Eze village and even nearby St. Paul de Vence!

We greatly enjoyed the early morning trips into Vence and then returning to the villa with the delicious provisions in order to enjoy a delightful breakfast al fresco. We would return to the lovely covered dining table just outside the kitchen for a late afternoon snack of charcuterie, patés and glasses of chilled Rosé.

Each of the rooms with en suite bath ensured that there would be both room and comfort for our family of 5. Perhaps the most compelling bonus, however, is the charm and professionalism of Bettina, our proxy host and most knowledgeable caretaker. Through Bettina's efforts, we had a wonderful holiday both on site at the villa but also in numerous restaurants throughout the area. Wonderful indeed!

Breathtaking!

  • 5 of 5

The views from this villa are exceptional. Nestled up in the hills the panorama spans Nice below and the Bay of Angels with its blue waters beyond. Included is the nearby walled town of St Paul de Vence, perched on a hill....it's stunning and hard to beat.

The villa itself blends naturally into its surroundings and has a harmonious, tranquil feel - it's quiet, private and peaceful. Yet villages steeped in history and atmosphere are close, cosmopolitan Nice is just a short drive and the sophistication of Cannes and Monaco is within easy reach.

The pool is excellent and there is table tennis and boules for added fun. All the balconies share the vista, as do most of the rooms. Inside, the villa is cool (there's air con), spacious and fully equipped. It is a true haven.

What with deliciously fresh local produce available nearby....and of course great wines....this villa has all the ingredients for the perfect getaway. Indeed, we visited last year and liked it so much we had to return. It remains at the top of our list and we hope to visit again soon.

Slice of paradise in the hills of the Cote D'Azur

  • 5 of 5

Staying at Villa Carola was like escaping to paradise for a week. Its location and beauty lived up to our expectations, with views over St. Paul de Vence and out to the Mediterranean coast. The villa itself is modern while still being quaint and fitting into the verdant hillsides of the Cote D'Azur. The driveway (through two security gates) up to the villa is quite steep and that provided really the only challenge of our stay. There are grocery stores and bakeries about 5 minutes away and the villa has a number of lovely tables to sit outside and enjoy the summer weather. WiFi was provided and worked except by the pool - which was where we spent the majority of our time. We didn't need to use the (offered) child-security fencing - but the adults and kids all loved playing in the water on a hot day after filling up with fresh croissants, with that amazing view and the nicely manicured gardens as a backdrop. The bedrooms are reasonable (with the updated rooms downstairs being ultra-modern and nice). The upstairs (2 of 3) bedrooms have terraces with views over the ocean and countryside. St. Paul is a short (5-10min) walk and a lovely place to start your exploration of this region - which we did in a series of day-trips, to Nice, Antibes, and Grasse (the first two definitely worth a return) - while always returning to the air-conditioned cool of the villa. Evenings can be spent playing boules in the back-yard court or lounging by the pool or the dining table under the stars. Hard to find fault with this place and we would definitely consider returning.

Incredible location, views and accomodation.

  • 5 of 5

The pictures do not do this villa justice. It is much more beautiful than the pictures suggest. The views are breathtaking. The villa is spacious and very easily accomodated our group of 6 adults and 2 small children. Wonderful covered dining terrace for breakfast and open terrace for dinner overlooking Saint Paul de Vence. Incredible landscaping with beautiful flowers and lavender. The pool is wonderfully situated to enjoy the views and recieves direct sun for the whole day (south facing). Saint Paul de Vence is a 10 minute walk. The driveway is quite steep but easily manageable in first gear. Overall, we had a terrific holiday. The property manager (Bettina) was courteous, available and very helpful at all times.

Very nice property!!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent Christmas & New Year at lovely villa Carolina.

Everything was just perfect. The property is very spacious. The view is wunderful and the village of St. Paul very close.

A brand new AC system had been put in place a few months befor our arrival and kept us warm during these 10 winter days.

The owners PA told us that renovation works will take place during spring 2012; a brand new master bathroom in contempory style, a new shower room and 2 new dressing rooms. We will definatly come back this summer and are looking forward to seeing these improvements.

Thanks for a lovely welcome, the Turmel family from Paris

St. Paul is a very charming medieval village and known for its priceless art: paintings, sculptures and glassware. It also has very good restaurants, the most famous one being 'La Colombe d'Or'. The views around St. Paul are heavenly, green hills, loads of very colourful flowers in spring, many orange and lemon trees and most importantly a grand view onto the Mediterranean sea.

St. Paul has a privileged location between Nice and Antibes. Only 10min to the sea, 15min to the airport and around 45min to Monaco and Cannes. Many attractive villages like: Eze, Vence, Tourettes, Gourdon and Mougin are within 30 to 60min driving distance.

Maximum of 12 people

Golf: There are several golf areas within 20 to 50min drive:

Rouret, Grasse, Valbonne etc.
