Recently renovated to high luxury standard and furnished to the local Provençale taste, you will find enjoyable the comfort of this lateral house spread across 200 square meters in addition of a large garden with a swimming pool, three double bedrooms all in-suite, a large living room with 6 meters high ceiling and an all-fitted kitchen with dining table. The kids will always be busy - the garage and studio have been turned into tennis/ football play on artificial grass – table tennis/ hockey and the garden is never too small for those who like to explore.
Two southwest facing balconies will make your dinners and family gatherings quite pleasant: from the main terrace, guests can relax in front of an inspiring panorama of extensive pine forest and the second terrace on the second floor is excellent for secluded time away from the family.
The villa is located about 15 mins walking distance to the town center Roquefort Les Pins in an area with big family houses. In Roquefort Les Pins, you can find all the amenities of the town center including pharmacy, Intermarche (local supermarket), local upscale Fruits and vegetable shop and of course the local boulangerie (bread shop). Chemin du Camouyer is a long street parallel to the Route Nationale. The neighborhood is quiet lined up with family houses, yet you will never feel alone when you see many people running on the street. During the summer months, the town center square has musicians very Tuesday and you can hear the gentle music from the main terrace of the house.
We would often walk to the square for sushi or pizza. The Intermarche is key benefit really - at easy reach you can buy anything you like. But of course nothing measures up with the upscale Fruits and Vegs shop and the boulangerie (local bread shop). We would often take the bike and go for croissants to the boulangerie (the villa has one adult bike and one for up to 11 years.)
Easy to reach, the Villa is about 20 mins from the Nice airport and from all attractions of the Cote D’Azur (Antibes, Cannes, Nice). Its also 7 minutes away from the tennis courts, horseback ridding, golf (Golf D’Opio) and football fields, outdoor adventure park “ Bois Des Lutin”, 20 minutes away from the Aquapark in Antibes and generally the beach is a great attraction with various options from Antibes to Cannes, Juan Les Pins, Cagnes Sur Mer – you will find that your days are packed with activities and the kids never have a moment free.
The villages of St Paul de Vence, Mougins and Gourdon are 30 minutes drive away. Grasse and the perfume houses Fragonard and Molinard with their quaint museum tours are also some 20 minutes drive. The nearby town of Valbonne about 10 mins away offers a wide selection of excellent restaurants and bistros for dining out, some with live music, as well as elegant boutiques and a typical French market.
We are a family of four and after having done extensive "hotel" travel over the years, we decide to buy our own place and start creating memories which we will cherish for many years after the kids would have left. we furnished the villa for us with the view of us retiring there one day - so we hope that you will find it family friendly, tasteful and cosy. all the furniture is new and the house was renovated about 2 years ago - you will see the quality of the bathrooms is truly unique.
We fell in love with Roquefort les Pins mainly for its location - close to the beach but not too close (we don't like the crowd), good shopping for food (we love our barbecues), plenty of space for the kids to play and run around, with nearby activities - we especially love the tennis and horseback ridding (7 mins away by car) and the opportunity to just visit places such as Valbonne for a quick coffee and St Paul de Vence or Cannes (about 20 mins away).
We like to spend August in Roquefort and a holiday is never long enough for us to do everything we like: first we spend a few days just chilling near the pool; then we venture to the beach - our favourite place is Juan Les Pins where we make reservations for sun beds a month in advance - Les Pirates is a great place to go to with lots of water sports nearby and a fantastic restaurant. We would then venture to Antibes for the evening or just stay in Juan les Pins centre. We always try to leave a couple of days for city tourism: Biot, Monaco (by boat is great); St Tropez (by boat); St Paul de Vence and finally Cannes for shopping. The rest of the time we play tennis, bike with the kids and entertain guests at home.
Violetta purchased this house in 2014
The house is very spacious and has many spots to either get together or to enjoy some time just by yourself: outside or inside dining room, kitchen or by the barbecue are the places where we gather as a family in the evenings. The pool is the usual place during the day, or alternatively on the large terrace outside the living room. For time alone, I would often go on the second floor terrace. The best is the converted garage for the kids - they stay there for hours playing tennis and football.
