About Briane and Marian Loram

We are an Australian family who have enjoyed, for some years, wonderful holidays with family and friends as tenants at Villa Gezanne.

Why Briane and Marian Loram chose Cannes - Grasse - Antibes

Gezanne came up for sale and we were fortunate to become the new owners. Much to our delight, the previous owners - Marian and her daughter Briane, who had welcomed us so warmly to the property for many years, agreed to continue to greet guests to Gezanne and look after the property. Their local knowledge, kindness and enthusiasm has been wonderful for us and other guests over the years. Marian and Briane live on site in a separate part of the property in the guardian’s flat. We were drawn to Gezanne because of the house's character, spacious garden, sizeable pool, pleasant views and its great location - in a quiet secluded area but just a not far from the beach, the village of Biot and Antibes. Gezanne is a great base to explore the Riviera and the Alpes Maritimes and each year we find more and more interesting places to see and things to do.”

What makes this villa unique

The rooms are very spacious and light. The house has a welcoming feel to it. The pool is larger than normal for a private villa plus can been heated on request . The garden is large and secluded, with terraces of Olives , Citrus fruits which look stunning when light up at night. The surrounding area is quiet.

Fantastic family holiday villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic 2 weeks at Villa Gezanne. Our hosts Marian and Briane looked after us and made sure we settled in. House has plenty of space, good cooking facility great out door eating area overlooking the valley. Supermarket a short distance away and only a short drive to the villages of Valbonne and Biot. We will be back.

Magnificent and Indulgent Oasis

  • 5 of 5

Upon arrival at the majestic Villa Gezanne we were immediately greeted by the friendly and welcoming hosts Briane and Marian - it took no time at all to feel at home and every detail was well thought of prior to our arrival. The level of comfort and amenities was perfect with everything provided for a 10 day sojourn. There is ample space inside and outside in the lovely gardens for 4 couples to enjoy in absolute peace and splendour - the pool and gardens are definitely the pièce de résistance of this remarkable villa.

We ventured to nearby charming villages and on to Cannes and Monte Carlo but always longed to get back to our oasis Villa Gezanne at the end of the day.

We would highly recommend Villa Gezanne to family and friends and are already planning our return in a couple of years

Dream Come True!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a dream come true week in Briane and Marian's home.

The house was in perfect condition, comfortable beds, luxurious bathrooms, exquisite gardens, magnificent views, and a heated pool.

We had picnics and play time in the gardens with our children and cooked fresh food in the lovely kitchen.

Briane and Marian both helpful and respectful of our family time. We only saw them when we had question.

They gave us great suggestions and have a lovely family. They are also pleasant and easy to work with.

Biot has both charm and history and is located very central to many desirable towns.

It is also close to the water!

It was the perfect week.

We plan to return as soon as possible!

Peaceful Gezanne

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from 2 weeks in Gezanne. A wonderful villa in a wonderful location. We enjoyed the warm pool and beautiful garden and were very well looked after by Marian and Briane. As we enjoy cooking, we liked the large well equipped kitchen and nearby terrace for eating. A most enjoyable and relaxing holiday.

Gorgeous house, amazing views and lots of space

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a week late August with our two young children. The size of the villa is impressive and the outdoor space offers great views and a gorgeous garden. It is very safe for children as the pool area is flat and there is a pool fence and alarm if you wishes. We loved the nearby village of Biot which offers a few bars and restaurants and enjoyed many mornings sitting in the square after a trip to the local bakery for fresh warm croissants. Antibes is a great day out too. You need a car to get around but the supermarket and villages are just a short drive away. The villa is a great size for a large family and has a great shady terrace upstairs. The owners live just next door and are very welcoming but not at all intrusive. Booking was easy and the directions to the villa and any other questions and needs we had were answered quickly.

Villa Gezanne - the perfect villa

  • 5 of 5

This is the most perfect villa for a large family holiday. We were a family group of five adults and six young children on our bi-annual get together.

On arrival we were so impressed with the spaciousness and also the high standard of furnishings and cleanliness. The kitchen is very well equipped and the outside terrace is a great venue for all meals. The electric awning was a boon in the very hot weather. All the rooms are very spacious and allow for everyone to have their own space if needed and there are more than enough bathrooms and showers for a large group like ours. Most impressive is the large swimming pool which we practically lived in. The children were very reluctant to leave. It is big enough to allow lots of games and the surrounding terrace has lots of loungers for those less active. The garden is very large and most attractively laid out with plenty of lawn space and quiet areas.

The house has a very special warm homely feeling and although beautifully furnished it does not feel so precious that you feel uncomfortable. It is also a book lover's paradise with a large selection on every topic. Oh to have had more time......

A large supermarket, a patisserie and a pharmacy were a very short drive away and the pretty village of Biot just a little further. We ventured to the coast but being the height of summer found it very hot and crowded. We also went to a children's adventure park nearby (which the kids loved), and being sports enthusiasts, also went rock climbing and swimming in the local river.

Marion is an excellent host. Nothing is too much trouble for her and she was so helpful but not intrusive at all. Her accommodation whilst close by is completely private and does not intrude in any way on the privacy of the villa. I would really recommend Villa Gezanne to anyone looking for a large house in this area. We do hope to return sometime - but perhaps when it is a little cooler (and as the pool is heated, anytime of year would work).

With its excellent location this villa is an ideal summer getaway. Half way between the medieval villages of Biot and Valbonne. The villa is situated in a quiet wooded residential area, yet only 10 min from the beach, 25 min from the Croisette in Cannes or 30 min from airport and the shops in Nice. With views of the surrounding countryside and coastline.
