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.

Lots of different spots to eat, sit or lounge and enough to keep the kids entertained with fantastic pool, pétanque & table tennis (bring some extra ping pong balls as we found it hard to find replacements). The view from around the pool is beautiful if you're staying in & there's lots to do not too far from the villa - we went to hilltop towns of Grasse & St Paul de Vence, an amazing lake with pedalos with slides on top and canyoning which was excellent fun! Easy check in/out process & plenty of info about things to do/see & restaurants in welcome folder. Valbonne is a beautiful little old town, with everything you need - shops, restaurants around a little square & a weekly market - close by car but a longer (probably a good 15-20 mins) steepish walk downhill there & uphill back. In summary, it was a great place to spend a week with family!

Great location, in easy reach of the larger towns but with quaint neighbouring villages. We'll definitely be back, can't wait, truly 5 star in every way ! Thanks Michelle
