A Soothing stay in St. Jean Cap Ferrat

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year that we stayed at this property and we will returning next year. The villa and the grounds are beautiful, comfortable, well maintained with wonderful sea views. The plan affords privacy for all of the guests and it has modern appliances, etc. Wolfgang, the owner, was very helpful in connecting one of our guests with the appropriate doctor when she had a medical issue. Also, if there is a maintenance issue, it is taken care of immediately. We were so relaxed that my wife and I did not want to leave.

This villa was the perfect setting for our trip to the Côte d'Azur.

  • 5 of 5

The house is lovely with very tasteful decor and wonderful places for spending time together as a family or having some peace and quiet. The views of the Mediterranean are stunning from the veranda, the kitchen, the living room and the master bedroom.

We rented the villa over the Christmas holiday, which ruled out using the pool and even limited he time we spent on the veranda, although the outdoor fireplace, the heating lamp, and a nice bottle of red wine provided enough heat to be comfortable.

The kitchen is small but well equipped for cooking meals at the house, which we did on Christmas Day. The village is a quick 5 minute walk with a nice boulangerie, a Casino market, and a few restaurants and shops. We enjoyed getting fresh baguettes and croissants every morning.

Wolfgang was very helpful and attentive and made us feel welcome and at home in the house. We would recommend this lovely villa for families or friends who want comfortable luxury in a serenely beautiful setting with all the activities available in Nice within 20 minutes.

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:)

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:)
