Overview

Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday villa in Nice - Villa les Fauvettes

Luxury villa + sleeps 10 + parking + near village, beach, restaurants

This is an exceptional spot with sensational views of the bay of Villefranche Sur Mer. The Villa has been interior designed and is both beautiful and comfortable. Relax around the wonderful infinity pool or in the landscaped gardens with shady corners. This is the perfect romantic setting for a self catering holiday with family or friends. There are three self contained parts to the villa each with it's own kitchen and bathroom. 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms in total and a cloakroom. Enjoy the magnificent views and romantic ambiance. A perfect summer holiday rental which gives the choice of self catering as the villa is within walking distance of great restaurants in the beautiful old and historic town of Villefranche. Just as close is the sea and lovely beach adding to a holiday which offers everything your heart desires.

The Villa has a state of the art air conditioning system. This winter the outside and inside of the Villa has been re-painted with new tiling around the swimming pool. Please note that there are steps up to the Villa so is not suitable for anyone with mobility problems. The villa has ample parking and is within easy reach of Nice, Monte Carlo and Italy. Cannes, Vence and Antibes are an easy drive away. This is the best location on the Cote D'Azur by far.

Please note that bookings are a minimum of one week from Saturday to Saturday between June and mid October.

We may have flexibility between mid October to beginning of June - please enquirer..

My cancellation policy is found on my website www.villefranchevacation.com and this may be different than the HomeAway cancellation policy. Cancellation fees would normally be covered by insurance if caused by illness or other insurable event.

Great family vacation!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

The Villa was amazing , it is more beautiful and comfortable than the photos suggest . The views are incredible and the town of Villefranche -Sur- Mer is charming and accesible to the different cities along the Cote D' Azur. You need to be in good physical condition to maneuver the stairs and hills, it is not for the physically impaired. We had a great time!!!

Perfect Spot for Family Gathering

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved the house and Villefranche in general. The house was perfect for our group of 7, just enough space to spread out and have some privacy, but not too big. The beds were comfortable, the pool lovely and the view fantastic. We agreed we would love to return sometime.

Excellent villa in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Been renting villas on the Riviera since the 70s and this is the best yet. Excellent property, high quality equipment, plenty of space for our group of 9. Wonderful location high above the harbor with views across to Cap Ferrat and within walking distance of the town. Good train and bus service along the coast so we didn't rent a car. Strongly recommend you take a taxi from the airport, using Mattie's favorite, Jean Frederic; she'll book it for you. For provisions there is a local supermarket which delivers but we preferred to use the local shops and the little market on Wednesday and Sunday. Caution, this is where the Alps meet the sea so there are plenty of fairly steep climbs if you are on foot; our group aged from 40s to 70s did fine, but if you are badly out of shape or disabled think carefully about it.

Simply Stunning

  • 5 of 5

Last spring, an online search for Villefranche villas led our group of seven to Villa Les Fauvettes, and the reality did not disappoint. A more luxurious, relaxing and convenient Riviera location would be hard to imagine. The central location is within walking distance of the Old Town and offers easy driving or rail access to Cannes, Nice, Monaco, Provence and the Italian border. The layout of separate suites within the villa itself afforded privacy between our shared times around the pool and at mealtimes on the expansive terrace. As the sun went down and the lights of Villefranche and Cap Ferrat came on, the views out across the harbour were simply stunning.

The Villa was well-maintained, the bedrooms airy and restful, and the large, modern kitchen easy to use. Mattie was our helpful first contact, and Christina our gracious, on-site host who was quick to respond to the few questions that we had. There is ample covered parking off a quiet lane, while the Villa’s lush gardens only add to that sense of opulence and ease that befits a vacation on the Côte d’Azur.

Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5

Our group (five couples) recently stayed at this lovely villa. The three separate living areas allowed us to spread out and not be in each others hair. The villa was clean and well maintained and Norbert checked on us frequently. Of course, the view was to die for!! The village was a precious gem and the location proved to be very central for our drives to Monaco, Nice, Ez, and villages in between. We enjoyed the restaurant, Comos, so much that we went twice. It is located in the village and was recommended by Mattie.

I would, however, not recommend this villa if you have a disability that prevents you from climbing a lot of steps, as the villa has approximately 50 to 60 steps. Otherwise, I would highly recommend a visit to this heaven on earth.

Villefranche is situated 4kms from Nice Centre and 7km from Nice International airport. A well kept secret as it retains it's charm due to lack of major hotels nearby. The train which is 7 minutes away runs all along the coast. Nice or Monaco are ten minutes away or you can be in Italy in 40 minutes. Drive into the hills and visit Eze or St Paul de Vence. Antibes and Cannes are within easy reach. This area has so much to offer from art, history, luxury and indulgence - whatever your taste. Villefranche old town dates back to the 12th century and is full of history and good places to eat plus a wonderful beach and sea to swim in. This is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful places in the world.
