Carpediem: A New House with A Private Heated Pool Overlooking The Mediterranean

Bedrooms 3
Space 1,722 sq. ft.
Property type villa
Minimum Stay 1 - 7 nights


About the property

3 Double Bedrooms, 2 Full Bathrooms, 1 Half Bathroom, Sleeps 6

A new house and a private heated pool with a view to the blue water of the Mediterranean. The place is located on a quiet and secured domain, midway between Nice and Cannes (5 miles from Antibes and 3 miles from the beach). Only 10 minutes drive to the motorway A-8 guarantees a perfect holiday in the south of France. There is one huge living room of 80 square yards with a high ceiling of 6 yards. There are 3 double bedrooms all facing sea and sun.The sun invites itself into the three double bedrooms every morning, so all the guests are waking up early for a swim in their private pool. There are two balconies and a garden of 1500 square yards to relax, dine and play ping pong.

Here are what past travellers said about their stay and the place:

Paul R.: We have stayed in many excellent properties across Europe and this one has to be one of our favourites!! There is something special about it. The house offers seclusion and total privacy,it is very spacious and comfortable, has a lovely pool and absolutely stunning views!! Avri, the owner, makes you feel very welcome, has a great sense of humour and is always available if you require any help or advice. The Location is excellent; the Medieval town of Biot is on the doorstep, the harbour and beach of Antibes are just down the road and Cannes and Monaco are only a short drive away.We thoroughly enjoyed are stay here and could have stayed longer to explore the area further. We will definitely return there in the future.

Jerry K.: Our two families have been holidaying in France and Portugal for 15 years now and we rate Carpe Diem as one of our favourite stays. Not only is it excellent value for money considering its position ....... it's perfectly positioned for travel to Nice, Cannes and Antibes .... and slightly further afield, to Monte Carlo. The owner, Avri, is always on hand to sort out any problems, and to give advice on sightseeing, restaurants etc. The villa is excellent and a super pool.... hoping to go back next year.

Thank you so much for making our stay so special – we felt very welcome and knew where to turn for any advice required. This is the second time we stayed at your property and we would like to book it again for next year! We had an amazing time at your beautiful house and everything was there to make our stay memorable – the house, the location and the value. The sea view is unbelievable and we were spending a lot of time just enjoying the view. Looking forward to next year!

Provence is perfect for a Winter break as temperatures remain pretty much balmy all year round.

A fantastic new property in Biot : 5 km from the beach, 15 km from Nice airport, 35km from Monaco, 25 km from Cannes and 8 Km from Antibes..

This exceptional property is located in a forest overlooking the sea. It is in a private and exclusive estate with a sea view and has an exceptional view of an old village. It is located in a very quite surrounding, has its own forest, a large garden of 1500 sqm, a secured parking space and a private swimming pool. It is 1.5 km from the centre of Biot, a typical “provencial” village. The village is famous for its arts and crafts, sport facilities (Golf and Tennis), historical sites, restaurants, pubs and coffee bars.

This house is located in the heart of the Cote d'Azur, mid-way between Nice and Cannes and five minutes from Antibes. It is ideal for those seeking to combine the attractions of the Riviera with the space and comfort in the sun. It is an ideal base for touring in Southern Europe. Nice airport is 15 minutes away. Antibes has a superb marina, provencal market,restaurants, cafes, bars and shops in the winding streets of the medieval old town. Great night-life in Antibes and Juan les Pins. The charming perched villages of Biot, Cagnes, St. Paul de Vence, Tourettes sur Loup, have museums featuring Picasso, Renoir, Chagall, Matisse and Dufy. Nearby Grasse is the centre of the French perfume industry. NICE, with its world-known Promenade des Anglais and CANNES with its elegant Croisette, MONTE CARLO are all easily reached by road and rail. ITALY is less than an hour away : SAN REMO, IMPERIA, the Friday food market in VENTIMIGLIA. Go for lunch in Italy!

Golf: Fourteen of the Riveria's famous golf courses are within an easy 20 minute drive of the villa, providing a range of facilities for low handicap players and beginners alike. Just five minutes away is 'La Bastide du Roy', a charming old course suitable for all players, with a quaint little club-house. At Mougins, the 'Golf Country Club' is truly one of France's best : designed by Dave Thomas and Peter Allis and winding through wooded hills and lakes. For a course requiring accuracy with interesting water hazards, try 'Royal Mougins' : the club has a wonderful restaurant and has hosted the French Open. Inland, along the banks of the River Siagne, the 'Old Course Cannes-Mandelieu' was created in 1891 by Grand Duke Michael of Russia : a great course in beautiful countryside. At 900m above the principality of Monaco, the redesigned 'Monte Carlo Golf Club' provides spectacular views of Monte Carlo and the beautiful coastline. Golfing groups are most welcome at Villa Mediterranee and neighboring villas on the same domain can be available for larger groups : please ask for further details.

Ski: At the entrance to the wonderful Mercantour National Park are the ski resorts of Isola 2000 and Auron, a 60 minute drive. At 2000m, Isola has 120km of pistes: a total of 45 (4 black, 14 red, 20 blue, 7 green). Purpose-built in the 70s, there are ample ski-lifts and one rarely has to queue. For a panoramic view of the resort, take the cable-car to the cafe at 2300m. Auron is a picturesque alpine village at 1600m, with 132 km of pistes. Both have restaurants on the edge of the slope and you can easily rent skis, snowboards, snowkarts and other equipment. The 'Ecole de Ski Francais' runs classes in several languages, including English, with 110 instructors ; prices start at 18 Euros for group lessons, 35 Euros for individuals. A magical place at Christmas : the nativity scene is set up on the piste and Santa visits in a sleigh. At midnight on New Year's Eve, champagne and hot chocolate are served under the Christmas tree accompanied by skiers descending the slopes with flaming torches
