A heavenly villa...

  • 5 of 5

Wow - what a wonderfully memorable week we all had!

During the planning stage, John was quick to respond to any questions, which made the booking hassle free.

We were a large group of 4 families - 8 adults and 6 children.

At La Farigoulette, there was plenty of indoor\outdoor space and the decoration of the interior and exterior was stylish and elegant.

Our children had a lovely time and especially enjoyed the pool, table football, chess board and table tennis.

The pool was well maintained and the outside bar/seating area was a welcome break from the beautiful and abundant sunshine!

The surrounding area is beautiful and some of us enjoyed exploring on early morning runs! The local supermarket was convenient and we stocked up on supplies to create some super culinary delights in the fab kitchen. A local chef visited us one evening and cooked a classical French feast for us all... This was such a treat!

You won't be disappointed if you book this property and we don't hesitate in recommending it to others.

Beautiful house with wonderful grounds and pool ar

  • 4 of 5

We had a family reunion and celebration at this wonderful house. It worked perfectly for our extended family because it has areas you can all get together in, and areas you can go to be quiet and alone. It is just a heavenly place and we will be coming back.

Excellent stay.

  • 5 of 5

The owner John was very responsive and helpful. The Villa was lovely and ideal for different groups, though quite warm at night in the bedrooms! Pool area delightful and the housekeeper, Ghislaine, was exceptional. Couldn't have had a better time.

Lovely villa in lovely surroundings

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week in this beautiful villa. Although there are houses around it, the villa is very private and feels quite secluded, with lovely views of the surrounding hills. It was well appointed and worked perfectly for 9 people with plenty of space to be together, but also to relax apart. You don't have to go far for a great meal with 2 good restaurants in nearby Opio and a terrific boulangerie, fruit and veg shop and a Carrefour market all a few minutes drive away. So a very convenient location for shopping and eating. And Valbonne on market day was a treat. I'd definitely recommend the villa to friends.

The early rounds of football's EURO'16 tournament will be remembered for the 'joie de vivre' brought to France by Irish fans. They were awarded the Medal of City of Paris (Grand Vermeil) for 'exemplary sportsmanship.' As a group of fans (friends and family) from Northern Ireland the experience will live long in our memories. Foremost in those memories will be our accommodation at La Farigoulette, Opio.

The villa was the ideal antidote to the bustle of Nice and the Côte d'Azur attractions. The peaceful environs of Opio and Valbonne where we walked the wooded hillsides and played our golf were a delightful respite from the throngs of fellow supporters at the stadium.

However, the villa itself was the real winner. We undertook a five-hour return drive from a match in Lyon just to be back to enjoy the villa the following morning. Everything was to hand for secluded poolside BBQs, patio outdoor dining, table tennis, table football, WiFi and satellite TV. La Farigoulette provides every modern convenience in the most unspoilt natural environment. The site is beautifully landscaped into the hillside affording total privacy among the indigenous woodland where the birdsong is the only background noise.

Don't get me wrong, less than five minutes in the car along the narrow lanes has you at the supermarket/shopping complex of Opio. (The fittest member of our group was able to return from his early morning run with warm croissant from the local bakery.)

The furnishing and decor of La Farigoulette befits the environment and settles you immediately into an elegant family home rather than a bespoke holiday let. I can wholeheartedly recommend this accommodation to anyone considering visiting the South of France but with one word of warning - you may not see much beyond the villa - there's no need to leave it.

Fantastic villa in stunning grounds

  • 5 of 5

This villa was not the easiest to find - we were in a group of three hire cars and one taxi from Nice airport. The taxi and one hire car got completely lost, the other two hire cars used their Google Maps as SatNav and got there really quite easily. The villa is at the bottom of a very steep driveway (bins are at the top by the road) and quite remote so hire cars are absolutely essential! None of this is meant to detract from how wonderful the villa was, we just think it useful for others to know in advance.

The villa is incredibly spacious and was very clean and tidy when we arrived. We enjoyed some fantastic meals in the nearby towns of Valbonne and Mougins but also really enjoyed going out for the day and coming back to cook up a storm on the BBQ and dine al fresco. Cannes, Nice, Monaco, Eze, Villefranche-sur-Mer, Tourettes-sur-loup, St Tropez are all very easy to reach and all well worth a visit with some beautiful scenery. We did a visit to Chateau de Bellet for a wine tasting afternoon too and we would highly recommend this. Plenty of golf locally for those that wanted to too.

Unfortunately the weather was a bit mixed during our visit, but mostly dry so we were still able to get out and about. The only thing that would have improved the villa for us would have been if the pool was heated.

We would definitely visit this part of France again and staying in this villa. John (the owner) has been fantastic at replying to my emails prior to our visit and since we got back too.

Perched on a Southern hillside overlooking the Bois d'Opio, The house is ideally situated 20 mins from the coast. The property is close to Valbonne, Opio, Chateauneuf, all with local shops, bars, restaurants and lively weekly markets. Valbonne is a busy medieval town with a myriad of little streets around a large central square with many restaurants, art galleries, antique shops and a buzzing Friday market. Mougins, the gastronomic centre of the South of France, is a 15 min drive. Gourdon, high above, is well worth a visit for the fantastic view and scenery. Grasse, the perfume capital of the Cote d'Azur is close by and for the hustle and bustle of the coast, Cannes, Antibes, La Napoule, Juan les Pins and Theoule are all within a 30-40 min drive.

La Farigoulette, however, enjoys total privacy and yet is within easy reach of all the attractions of the Cote d'Azur. It may be hard to tear oneself away from the total relaxation of this lovely house....

Other Activities: cannoning, skiing 40mins,
