Overview

About the property

4 people, 2 bathrooms, charming and peaceful villa with view of the village

Ideally located between the sea shore and the first mounts overlooking the Mediterranean, of which one is the majestic Baou de Saint-Jeannet, the Villa Magalie is partially for rent and offers a charming suite for 4 people.

The suite includes an original 'living room' opening directly onto the swimming pool, on the terrace and offers a beautiful view of the Baous and the picturesque village of Saint-Jeannet. Inside, you will find a small designed and equipped kitchen (fridge, microwave, induction hobs, dishwasher, etc.) and a comfortable sofa-bed. You can use it as a bed, unless you prefer to sleep on the mezzanine where you will find a double bed (140 cm) from where you will have a panoramic view of the pool. The room has an en-suite bathroom and a separate WC.

Upstairs, an atypical air-conditioned bedroom, artfully laid out and decorated in a beach cabin style, hosts a sleeping area with a 160 cm double bed, an 'hydro area' with a shower, a wash basin, and a whirlpool bathtub, and a play area with a TV and a desk.

But from June to September, we mostly live in the garden, with its large central swimming pool and its outdoor kitchen. The garden also boasts a shower and WC.

Set in a former olive grove, the garden is mostly composed of around ten hundred-year-old olive trees and different kinds of palm trees that offer a valued shade in summer. The garden also serves as a green beach for the swimming pool, which offers a large bench, perfect for relaxation and idleness.

Further details

Set in 300 m high, this typical Nice house enjoys an ideal amount of sunshine, from morning till night. The property is located in a peaceful residential area, two minutes away from a small mall (supermarket, bakery, doctors, car repair shops, etc.), five minutes away from the villages of La Gaude and Saint-Jeannet, and less than twenty minutes away from the Nice Côte d'Azur airport, the sea, and other touristic spots as Saint-Paul, Vence, Tourettes-sur-Loup, the Baous, Marineland, and the mall Cap 300. Its central location in the French Riviera allows you to tour around and quickly visit Cannes, Monaco, Menton, the Vieux-Nice, the Cap d'Antibes, the Cap Ferrat, without forgetting the many trips in the hinterland. The owners, Christine et Philippe, both from Nice, will show you the Riviera treasures.

Miscellaneous: the suite is located in a private self-contained villa where only live the owners. Free access to the pool, as well as the outdoor kitchen (fitted with a barbecue.) Free Internet. Private parking. It is not suitable for disabled persons. Children are welcome. Pets are allowed.

About Philippe Maurel

We have been married for 30 year. We run an IT services company. Philippe is also the founder and chief editor of a magazine dedicated to fashion professionals. We are epicurean and we like to walk in the nature. This is why we can recommend you fine restaurants, trips, as well as walks or tours.

Philippe Maurel purchased this villa in 1995

Why Philippe Maurel chose Nice Area

Family meeting spot, this small house became over time a family home. As our children were not living here anymore, this part of the house was empty. We love travelling and meeting people staying in owner's houses. This is why it sounded so natural to us to rent this atypical and original suite.

What makes this villa unique

On one hand, the geographic location is ideal, in the heart of the French Riviera, between sea and mountain. On the other hand, you have the peaceful area, the landscaped garden, the large swimming pool, and the view of the Baous and the Mercantour massif. Finally, the house is charming as well as the 'cabin' we rent.

Highly recommended

Very relaxing pleasant stay, ideal for the airport and a reasonably short drive to seaside resorts.

Amazing scenery.

The owners for the villa made us feel very welcome and gave us all the privacy we needed.

Great place for a quiet family holiday.

Thanks!!

Wunderschöne Lage in den Hügeln ob Nizza

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben einen tollen Familienurlaub im Haus verbracht, der Pool war schön und sauber, die Grillstelle auch, am Abend kann man gemütlich auf der Veranda sitzen. Es ist sehr ruhig und von den Nachbarn sieht man nichts. Wir kommen gerne wieder!

Our family of five (3 small children) had a wonderful stay. The garden is lovely, the apartment is new and clean, and the location is superb for exploring Cote d'Azur!

Superhuis met zwembad en uitzicht!

  • 5 of 5

Ontvangst door zeer vriendelijke eigenaren Philippe en Christine. Mooi huis met woonkeuken en daarboven een soort vide met tweepersoonsmatras te beklimmen via los trapje. Verder een badkamer en apart toilet.Op eerste verdieping een tweepersoonsbed, douche, wc, bureau en loungehoek en een bad. Klein probleempje met bad en tv, maar we hebben ons prima vermaakt in de geweldige grote tuin met buitenkeuken (met bbq) en bar en een heerlijk zwembad. Was heel fijn dat we dit gevonden hebben na onze lastminute-beslissing om het nederlandse weer te ontvluchten. Paradijsje dichtbij Nice! Aanrader!
