Make a holiday rental gite or villa in Opio, France your home away from home

Opio stands among a protected area of olive trees, cork oaks and heather, blessed with an undeniable Mediterranean charm. The village is located a little inland from the Cote d’Azur, perched on a ridge above the coastal plain, nestled in amongst the trees and shrubs that originally covered the entire region. The village is an absolute delight in which to stay, seemingly miles from any tourist crowd, yet just 15km from the golden beaches of the French Riviera.

Things to do in Opio, France

The village is set among 450 hectares of forests, which is perfect for walking and horse riding holidays. The forests is fantastically peaceful, protecting walkers and riders from the sting of the summer sun and providing almost endless spots to sit and recapture your breath before heading further into the forest, looking for an idyllic spot in which to have your lunch.

The Begude Golf Course is the toast of many local golfers. Stretching out below the village, the golf course is hugely picturesque yet don’t allow this to lull you into a false sense of confidence; there are a couple of real challenges to overcome as you play a round. There are also a number of public tennis courts for your use within the village. The Club Med leisure resort at the bottom of the village has a great range of leisure facilities available.

The huge allure of the coast can be very hard to ignore from a holiday rental villa in Opio, but, with only 25km between the two, a day at the beach is an excellent option. The famous beaches of Antibes and Cannes are among the closest, and some of the best if you would like to enjoy scuba diving, deep sea fishing, sailing, surfing, windsurfing or waterskiing, but for days of pure relaxation stretched out on the golden sand, there are many miles of pristine beaches to choose from.

Places to visit on holiday in Opio, France

If you are staying in Opio accommodation for any length of time, the attractions of Valbonne and Chateauneuf will most likely become quit familiar. Valbonne is a wonderful medieval village, which still bustles with activity, especially on Friday, which is market day. There are a great range of restaurants, galleries and antique shops.

Weather in Opio, France

The beautiful climate of the Cote d’Azur is a huge attraction for those renting self catering Opio accommodation, as the summer months are an absolute joy. With daily temperatures routinely soaring into the mid 30’s (˚C) from June until late September, long Indian summers and fantastically balmy evenings, Opio villas are in high demand for the majority of the year, with golfers flocking down in the winter as daily temperatures are rarely below 15˚C and you will often have the whole course to yourself.

Travel to Opio, France

A holiday rental property in Opio is just 25km from Nice International Airport, a major transport hub in the south of France. There are a great range of flights arriving into Nice from the UK, from luxury services to budget flights with ‘no frills’ airlines. If you would really like to get the most from the region during your stay in Opio accommodation, having the use of a hire car is strongly recommended, especially as it means that you are free to come and go from the beaches of the French Riviera as you please.

Beautiful, relaxing and well- appointed villa home

5 of 5
This is a lovely home in a beautiful location. The property is clean and very well maintained. The owner provided excellent customer service and provided many recommendations of things to see and places to go. As a first time visitor to France, it was a wonderful environment to wind down after visiting places such as Gorges du Verdon, Nice, Monaco, Cannes, and San Paulo. I would highly recommend this property!

We had a week at the house in July, and were immediately enchanted by the whole property. The interior décor which is stylishly Provençal is simply beautiful. It has such an atmospheric homely feel to it. This is not your average rental, it’s a home that the owners want to lovingly share with a select few…how lucky we were to have discovered it! On arrival, the meet and greet went very smoothly with the house manager, who told us all we needed to know and she clearly knew the house very well. In any event, prior to arrival, the owners had already sent us a comprehensive set of instructions and helpful information. We met the gardeners on their weekly visit, and they look to have done a great job. The garden is well kept and charming. We understand the pool had been recently refurbished and it was perfect for the children and ourselves to cool down in. The pool man also looked very happy with his new pool when he arrived! Although we had done our research on the area before we arrived, it was even clearer on arrival how central the house is in relation the local towns and villages. Valbonne was really buzzing, and Le Rouret village has a charming centre with its own Michelin star restaurant we understand. The 2 local supermarkets also did the job for us. While at the house, we spent most of our time on the terrace (3 meals a day in fact), with the occasional barbeque and the sensational garden night lighting system. All in all, it was such a wonderful house to spend our holiday that we will definitely be back! Perhaps that is the acid test of how much of a good time we had.
