Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday villa in Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat - Villa La Mignonne

Two Bedroom Fully Detached House With Garden In The Best Part Of St Jean

Villa La Mignonne is situated in one of the most exclusive areas in the world: the cape of St Jean Cap Ferrat. The house is a stone's throw away from the marina in St Jean, a two minute walk from the breathtaking Paloma Beach and on the doorstep of stunning walks around the cape. We are less than 100 meters up the road from the luxurious Hotel La Voile d’Or.

La Mignonne is a fully detached house (68m2) with a paved garden (46m2) raised above the road. The garden has an outdoor shower for when you return from the beach or just for cooling off. The garden has recently been re-tiled with marvellous travertine limestone.

There are two double bedrooms upstairs and both have French doors which open directly onto the balcony (7m2). All the rooms are bright, airy and air-conditioned. The house has recently been refurbished throughout including new bathrooms, a new kitchen and new furniture. There is also a dedicated very fast wifi connection!

The ground floor (34m2) has an open plan kitchen living and dining room that opens out directly into the garden. This floor also has a cloakroom with a toilet and a washing machine.

Upstairs (a further 34m2) there are two identically outfitted double bedrooms, a large built-in wardrobe and a bathroom with an Italian shower. The bedrooms each have large French doors opening onto a balcony (7m2) with views towards Beaulieu sur Mer, the hilltop village of Eze and Monaco.

About Christian Olsen

We are a family of four living in London. Our previous holiday home was in the historic village of Haut de Cagnes.

Christian Olsen purchased this villa in 2012

Why Christian Olsen chose Nice Area

We wanted a detached house that was close to the beaches of St Jean Cap Ferrat.

What makes this villa unique

In the best part of St Jean, great views from both bedrooms, a lovely paved garden and just a few minutes walk to Plage Paloma!

Quelle jolie maison!pleine de charme et en meme temps toute en simplicité et très fonctionnelle!

L'endroit est idéal pour un couple avec des enfants,à coté de la plage de la paloma et à 2 pas du centre de Saint jean cap ferrat;prendre le petit déjeuner sur la terrasse le matin est un pur bonheur!

La villa mignonne fait partie ces rares endroits que l'on veut garder secret,à ne partager qu'avec les gens qu'on aime!!

great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The property is amazing and in a very clean condition. The house is centrally located. The beautiful Paloma beach is nearby within walking distance. The beach offeres some shade even on hot days, the restaurant is first class and there are plenty of watersport activities. In the village, there are nice restaurants, where we enjoyed delicious seafood dishes. In comparison with Nizza or Cannes, Saint Jean - Cap Ferrat was never crowded. The nearby Villefranche sûr mer was also lovely. Unfortunately in the summer season, to search a parking was a job of it's own in whole region.

Our holidays in this property at Saint Jean - Cap Ferrat was worth the trip and is highly recommended.

Relaxing and calm

  • 5 of 5

We - a family with two girls, ages 8 & 7 - spent a very relaxing, calm and extraordinary sunny week at La Mignonne in early February. The well-equipped house is located close to the center of St-Jean-Cap-Ferrat and just a short walk from beaches and the coast promenade. St-Jean-Cap-Ferrat is a convenient location for discovering the Cote d'Azur region around Nice and Monaco.

Wit waren 10 Tage in diesem schönen Haus in St Jean Cap Ferrat und haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Das Haus ist skandinavisch geschmackvoll eingerichtet. Wir konnten jeden Morgen auf unserer großen Terrasse frühstücken und brauchten uns keine Sorgen um unsere Zwillinge machen, da die Terrasse gut eingezäunt ist. Zum Strand, Supermarkt und Restaurants geht man nur 5 Minuten. Wir werden gerne wiederkommen.

Very nice and peaceful.

  • 5 of 5

We are a finnish family with two kids (9 and 3)

The villa Mignonne made our spring holiday perfect. Location couldn´t be better, near the center but on the quiet side of town - really very peaceful! The silence during the first night was almost scary!

The 2 great boulangeries, and the convenience store are near and along the lovely walk in the harbour, and since it is St Jean - Cap Ferrat, the champagne- selection of a mini- convenience store is bigger than in a whole finnish town..

the pictures can´t quite do justice for the interior. it was perfectly clean, well maintained, full of riviera light and elegant in a simple way.

The owner answered promptly when planning the trip, but since we had absolutely no problems during our stay, we did not contact him then.

modern kitchen facilities, quick oven and easy dish washer made cooking easy, French supermarkets have so fantastic selection of interesting dishes!

We definitely will recommend this Villa to our friends, its very suitable for families with kids (two proper bedrooms)

the restaurants at the harbour looked very nice, but we never really had time to stop there, because we have so many favourite places nearby. We walked to Beaulieu with the kids, visited the Villa Ephrussi de Rotschild (for the 4. time - we never get enough of that beauty) we walked along the Promenade des Anglais in Nice and dipped our toes in the sea. The kids love the Bois de Lutins, Ludipark in Villeneuve- Loubet. Kids love to sleep late, so every morning me or my husband could make a walk on the beautiful footpaths around the the Cap or Saint Hospice, which both practically start on the doorstep.
