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.

                                                                                                      4 of 5
                                                                                                      We stayed here for a week in July 16. Overall the Villa was a good size for us and our friends (4 adults and 3 kids). My wife and I shared the smallest double which was quite small and due to the heat - quite stuffy. If the house had AirCon or Mosquito nets over the windows this wouldn't have been an issue. As it was it was bareable with the fan on constantly. We fed this back to the owner who I think will make every effort to improve this. Everything else about the Villa was great, good size pool, good facilities and appliances. Everything you need is there including towels. The owners - Derek and Gay are a lovely retired English couple who made us feel welcome in their home, Derek popped around every morning to check and maintain the pool and give any tourist advice required. He wasn't intrusive, in fact he's a really nice friendly guy. The location in Valbonne is good (lovely and quiet), although you need a car really unless you just want to walk up and down the hill to the village for supplies everyday (expensive but very pretty, and hard work in the heat). We drove down so it wasn't an issue for us (If you are driving down beware of the heavy traffic south of Lyon! we lost 3 hours in Jams, even though they are Toll Roads the traffic was crazy), Derek pointed us to the best supermarket (E.L'Clerke in Grasse - 10mins) so we were able to get supplies inc fuel a lot cheaper than in Valbonne. There is a lot to see nearby, we went to Antibes (20 mins) a few times (lovely old town with good beaches - I would stay there next time I think!). We also went to Mandelieu-La Napoule (25 mins) a few times - to the beaches there - very good beaches, very safe for kids. This was my first trip to the South of France and its worth noting that it isn't cheap, especially now the UK Pound Sterling is so weak! In fact, I think its probably one of the most expensive areas in Europe for holidaying. Having said that, it wouldn't put me off returning, the area is so beautiful and the weather is hot but not too hot (26-31C). As I mentioned before, although I loved Dereks house and would return, I think I would possibly try an Apartment in Antibe Old Town next time, lovely shops and good beaches and probably cheaper too. Would I drive down again? Great roads and almost empty until you get to Lyon. Hmm, not sure, maybe, but its a long way! Perhaps next time I would take 2 weeks and stop halfway for a few days......

The Villa was lovely and ideal for different groups, though quite warm at night in the bedrooms! Pool area delightful and the housekeeper, Ghislaine, was exceptional. Couldn't have had a better time.

Very well kept. Great views. Only challenge was electronic gate which was sticking, making it difficult to access property.
