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.

De beste Provençaalse villa met zwembad

5 of 5
Al jaren huren wij voor een week een villa met zwembad in Zuid Frankrijk. Deze villa op loopafstand van Valbonne is tot nu toe de allerbeste. Ruime kamers, een heerlijk zwembad, een geweldige keuken direct aan de veranda die uitkeek op het zwembad. Wij waren met 3 volwassenen en 4 pubers (leeftijd 15 t/m 19 jaar) en hebben ons uitstekend vermaakt. De ene in het zwembad en een ander onder de veranda in een licht briesje met een glaasje rosé. De ligging is heel centraal. Naast Cannes en Monaco zijn Grasse, Antibes (zee) maar ook st Paul des Vence (bergen) prachtige plaatsen om te bezoeken.Wij zijn bij Pont sur Loup zelfs gaan Canyoningen. Een geweldige ervaring! De eigenaren van de villa, Derek en Gay zijn gezellig en heel behulpzaam. Wij hebben genoten van de villa in Valbonne en kunnen terugkijken op een heerlijke vakantie. Door de goede indeling van de Provençaalse villa is deze, wat ons betreft, zeer geschikt voor 2 tot 8 personen.

A beautiful and extremely well-maintained villa

5 of 5
We had a really wonderful week at the villa and it was the perfect place for us to relax and get away from busy London life. The villa was very clean and comfortable and designed beautifully by the owners. We thoroughly enjoyed eating out on the terrace with the fantastic views and swimming in the lovely pool. The owner and manager were extremely helpful and welcoming and provided an excellent service. We would certainly recommend the villa to friends and we hope to go back one day ourselves. We only left the villa a few times, but would recommend a trip to the beautiful hilltop village of Gourdon with its stunning views and also Valbonne where there was a buzzy atmosphere in the square in the evening and a great market on Friday mornings. Every morning we went to the bakery, which is next to the supermarket in Opio. Near the end of the week we discovered a much bigger and better supermarket not much further away towards Le Rouret.
