About Mrs and Mr Marzban

We are a family who has lived here, in the US, UK and are totally international. We have children and enjoy very much this region.

We will try to stay here as long as we can and as long as we can offer our kids a good education. Both parents have studied in Europe and have obtained various University degrees in the US.

Mrs and Mr Marzban purchased this villa in 1979

Why Mrs and Mr Marzban chose Californie Pézou

This property has a great vibe and plenty of space for adults to feel free and for kids to play . It is in a very peaceful location, yet close to town and to the shops.

What makes this villa unique

The sound of silence, of the birds! The sea view and that we are walking distance to the beach!

The fact that you can walk to Cannes, to the boulangerie and other small shops and yet not be in the heat of the traffic.

The fact that you can access the N7 and access Antibes, or the highway so easily.

The walks you can take on the Eucalyptus hills above our villa. This family house has lived and brought about many great memories!

Wonderful homely villa with stunning views

  • 5 of 5

Everyone has their own idea of luxury. If yours includes the most wonderful view over the Mediterranean from a well-loved family home and a fabulous pool, then this villa is for you! This family home has the character of the owners stamped on it. It has some wonderful social areas where our large party could gather for drinks and an open terrace for leisurely meals outside. The rooms are well proportioned.While the upstairs room is a little smaller, it has a roof terrace with superb views over the sea. Air conditioning in the bedrooms was valued during our stay. If you are looking for an anodyne villa with hotel-like rooms you will be disappointed; if you like to stay in a real, lived-in, well appointed home this is for you. We loved it!

Amazing and restful family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Roxane has a lovely home and is so accommodating. There were 9 of us which included 4 year old twins and we all had plenty of space for 2 weeks. Plenty of bathrooms and big bedrooms. The twins loved the pool and we enjoyed swimming every day. We also enjoyed the amazing views of the sea and the boules court also entertained the whole family. Thank you to Roxane and family for a wonderful vacation! Your home is ideal for a large family get away.

Amazing! Surprassed all my expectations.

  • 5 of 5

This is a Villa on the hills overlooking Cannes. The view amazing. You get the whole bay of Golfe Juan, including Les Iles de Lerins; where the man no face was imprisones in the 1700"s (I think).

The villa is ideally situated a few minute from La Croisette and Cap d'Antibes & Juan les Pins a short hop.

The bedrooms are very comfortable and fullfilled my expectations.

The common areas are very well appointed with good WiFi, a huge TV screen (like we were glued to the TV). There was video games galore which is a bliss when you are travelling en famille.

The kitchen seems to have been renovated recently with everything you need to survive on a holiday and more. I have rented many holiday homes and this comes out holding its head well above the others.

The kicker is the owners Rox é Manou. They are awesome (You guessed it. I have become a huge fan.) they took their time to show us around and giving very valuable advice on what to do and most importantly where to eat. They were always available on the phone to give advice on restaurants and things to do. A real concierge sevice bespoke.

The week we passed in the villa we came to the conclusion that Manou suffers from the Peter Pan Syndrome, with a lot of cool toys Ping Pong, Video games, babyfoot & ..... which we could play with. The kids loved it. I must admit I got Manou's disease, I loved it too.

I have become a believer and recommend this property without hesitation.

I already booked it for next years holidays.

what a great villa - location, views, pool, amenities - all exceeded our expectations. Good for kids or an adult only holiday.... you take your pick.

location wise you can ignore or enjoy the pizzaz of Cannes and the Croisette, or you can go upto the lovely provencal countryside and villages which makes for great siteseeing, and come home to drinks on the beautiful terrace.

All round great combination in a villa.

Beautiful, charming summer villa.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Mr. & Mrs. Marzban's villa in July of 2014. What a beautiful villa. Very clean and charming. We felt at home right away so did the kids.

A rare jewel!

Best old style villa in Cannes!!!

  • 5 of 5

Loved it! Loved it! Loved it!

Tranquil locale, the top room with balcony has a beautiful area to see the whole med. best room out of a ton of best rooms!

The look and feel took you back to the golden years of Cannes heydays of the 50s & 60s....

Great place, great home, great price!

Since the property is on the hills of Cannes, you have a very quick access to the N7 that can take you straight to the beautiful villages of Cagnes-sur-mer, Vallauris, St-Paul de Vence , Antibes and Nice or the opposite direction; towards St Raphael and St Tropez. You are also 20mn from the highway and can visit the Gorge du Verdon or Ezes and Monaco. In winter you can be on the ski slopes of Auron or Isola, after just an hour.

The villa is also very close to the beaches and to the ports, port Canto is the closest. You can visit the two islands, in which you will find a monastry and the other a natural parc, well preserved for it's ancient trees.

For nature lovers, you are well catered in this area. And if you chose off season then you are a winner! There are also plenty of very good restaurants and charming places to discover.

For the ones who like partying, you do have a lot of new bars, lounges and discos in Cannes, Juan-les-Pins, Monte-Carlo and of course in St-Tropez.l
