Description

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday villa in Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat

4 Bedrooms, 4 en-suite bathrooms, sleeps 8

The villa was designed by the famous architect Andre Svetchine and features his signature such as the rare old terracotta floors throughout, antique fireplaces and glazed lava tiled bathrooms. Nestled into the hill above the picturesque village of St. Jean, assures the stunning panoramic eastward sea-views from all rooms. The living room has a working antique stone fireplace, a dining table and accesses both the breakfast terrace of the master bedroom as well as the pool area. The loggia area offers a fireplace, both for ambiance and/or cooking, a table with seating for 12 and large panoramic windows that slide into the wall opening onto the exceptional 180 degree view of the village, St. Hospice and the sea with Italy in the background. There is a water cascade built into the rock beside the pool,which can be floodlight and heated. The village with its numerous shops, restaurants, port and several beaches is only minutes walk away.

Public Transport: Public transport is very good in the region. The villa is 5 minutes walk from the village, where you can find all daily essentials: 2 very good butchers, 2 bakeries, fishmonger, little supermarket, wine shop, flower shop, newsagent, etc, as well as a multitude of restaurants and cafes. There is a bus to Nice bus terminal from the village almost twice an hour all day long (not at night and not Sundays). From there you can connect to a vast network of regional buses, ie St Paul de Vence, Biot, the mountains behind Nice, La Turbie etc. Beaulieu sur mer is only 20 minutes walk away (or a five minutes bus ride) and from there you can connect to a bus (every ten minutes) to Monaco/Monte Carlo. Beaulieu also has a train station with several trains an hour to Monaco or on to Italy, and the other way to Nice, Cannes or Antibes. There are several taxi companies available in the village. There are two car rental agencies in Beaulieu where you can rent on short notice a car for any lenght of time.

Water sports & beaches: There are many brokers locally who offer boats (sailing or motor) for rent, daily and long term, with or without skipper. Several places offer watersports such a water-skiing, wake boarding, pedalos, kite surfing or fun trips for children on plastic floaters.

Paloma beach (offering sun-bed rentals, full restaurant service, shower, changing rooms, water ski, wakeboading, windsurfing etc), the central village beach, 'Les Fossettes' beach and 'Les Fosses' beach are all only a 5 minutes walk away. 'Plage Passable' on the west facing side of the peninsula with great views at sunset with sun-bed rental and full restaurant service is 15 minute walk away. The beaches of Beaulieu sur Mer and Villefranche are a 5 minute drive away.

Walking - Hiking and Culture - Museums: There are many walks on and around the peninsula, for example around the little cap of St. Hospice, approx 45 minutes or al the way around the Cap Ferrat, approx 1.5 hours. The walk to Beaulieu sur is approx 20 minutes.The area on the coast behind Cap Ferrat is immediately quite mountainous and there are many trails which can be explored or hikes to be done with guides, both in summer and winter season.

There are several local museums in St. Jean (Villa Ephrussi Rothschild and Vila Kerylos, Museum of sea shells) and the area offers a large amount and variety of other cultural institutions larges based on the rich cultural heritage of the area (Nice: Museum of Modern Art, Matisse Museum, Chagall Museum; St. Paul de Vence: Fondation Maeght; Antibes: Picasso Museum; various Chapels with murals from Cocteau; many seasonal art exhibitions and festivals.

Pure Delight

  • 5 of 5

La Bougainvillee is splendid and comfortable villa located on the beautiful peninsula of Cap.Ferrat in the lovely and unhurried village of St. Jean.

There are many reasons to use as your home while there: breath taking views of azure water, mountains rising from the sea with many small villages hanging from their slopes, from the villa a quick 5 minute walk to a bakery of delicious breads and pastries, close proximity to Nice, Monaco, Cannes, Eze, great shopping and delicious, beautiful food abound; these are but a few of the reasons. A most memorable experience, please.don't miss it.

Phantastic time in Cap Ferrat

  • 5 of 5

The villa is located in one of the most beautiful landscapes on the French riviera - near to the hot spots but quiet itselves in a matured environment on top of the Cap Ferrat "hills" with breathtaking views over the Mediteranean see. The villa has all you need for a perfect stay, it is designed and equipped as a house to live in rather than a hotel room. So we had a phantastic time in Cap Ferrat.

Special thanks to the owners who have been friendly, helpful and available all the time of our stay.

You have to be there:)

  • 5 of 5

We have spend two weeks in this wonderful villa in September. I recommend it from all of my heart! Beautiful house, spectacular view, comfort exceeds expectations, truly "second home". You have all you need in one place: if you like to cook there is a lot of nice shops all around, if you don't - you'll find excellent restaurants for a lunch or dinner and bars for drink. If you like peace and quiet - no problem - stay home, if you're looking for fun - you're in the middle of fantastic Cote d'Azur: Nice, Monaco, Cannes... After few days we decided to go 140 km to see famous restaurant Auberge Le Mole, near St.Tropez - it was great time, excellent food, not very expensive, but delicious. You have to try it.:) I would love to come back to this villa - who knows maybe next year? Hope the owner will find two weeks for us... and the dog:)

Heavenly views and delightful villa

  • 5 of 5

Don't hesitate to book this villa. It's situation just above the village provides for glorious views over two bays from the large terrace. Perfect for your evening aperitif. We went for one week and there was plenty to do. The Villa Rothschild is just up the road with its wonderful gardens complete with music for an afternoon or evening stroll. The shops in the village have everything you need for a gourmet feast or two in the delightful loggia at the villa - a nicer place to eat would be hard to find at any time of day. Le Sloop is a great restaurant in St Jean for al fresco meals beside the harbour. If you don't have one already, choose your dream boat while you eat! Nice is only 40 minutes away and Beaulieu, which is just 5 minutes by car along the coast has a very good supermarket if you need it. The villa itself has four good sized bedrooms - one is totally self-contained as a studio. There is satellite TV with all the international news as well as terrestrial UK TV stations if you can't bear to miss out on your favourite programmes. The whole feel of the villa is peaceful and the village is quiet. If you need more life you are spoilt for choice with Monte Carlo, the Italian riviera, Nice, Cannes, Antibes etc just along the coast. And, of course, there is the Cap Ferrat itself for lovely walks, afternoon tea or an evening drink at the Grand Hotel du Cap as well as, the beaches in the village to top up your suntan. With great food, lovely weather and a charming, fully equipped place to stay... what more could you want? Definitely somewhere to return to time and time again! If, like us, you like sunshine and moderate temperatures, perhaps a return trip at the end of September after the Summer's heat has gone...? Having just returned, I can't imagine anywhere I'd rather have spent a late Spring break.

We'll definitely be coming back!

  • 5 of 5

It's not often you arrive somewhere on holiday and the place exceeds one's expectations. Everything was perfect: the beds and pillows were large and comfortable; the bathrooms were spacious; the seating everywhere was generous - and the facilities we spot on. Wi-fi, TVs, tableware, cutlery... it was just like being in your own second home. The village itself is charming and was drenched in scent from the jasmine and citrus that grows everywhere, and the locals were very friendly. Utterly perfect in every way.

Magical Place! Better than the pictures

  • 5 of 5

We visited this home in September to take a family trip for my mothers 70th birthday. It was truly amazing. The home is fantastic, elegant, comfortable, convenient and luxuriously relaxing. This is a great home for groups, as each room is equally beautiful, has a view, and has a bathroom.

Everything went very well and the hosts were friendly & efficient, making themselves contactable if you needed anything. We spent most nights making great meals and cooking in the wood burning oven, swimming in the warm pool, admiring the views and going down to the local beach and local bakery!

My mother and her husband truly had a memorable visit and also found it very easy to tour the coastal towns all by themselves (very easy to hop on a bus, talk a walk to the train -and go up and down the coast). It's a great place to base your trip to this area and be out of the fray - truly relaxing.

This is a "dream home" and I highly recommend it -- hoping to return again someday.
