Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday villa in Opio - L'Alealice

4 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps comfortably up to 8

Looking for the perfect family experience in the French Rivieira?

Located in lovely Opio, L'Alealice is a beautiful house built in the pure Provencal tradition and surrounded by large pine trees. Sleeping up to 8 people comfortably, the house is within 10-30 minutes from Grasse, Antibes, beaches, Cannes, Nice airport and nearest ski station. L'Alealice comes with very nice landscapes, a gorgeous swimming pool and multiple sun terraces. Very well organized, the house offers a fully equipped kitchen, a large living area with a built-in fireplace and comes ready with TV, multi-zone Blu-ray/DVD, HiFi, high speed internet access connection, washing and drying machines. L'Alealice is the perfect spot for up to two families with young children looking to relax and 'recharge the batteries' while discovering the Provence.

Opio (Pop.: 1.947 h. Surface : 947 ha): In a 'protected' site, in the middle of a marvelous Mediterranean environment - olive trees, pines, cork oaks, arbutus trees, heather - stands the minuscule perched village of Opio. Thanks to an exceptional micro-climate, roses and jasmine are cultivated here for the Grasse perfume industry, while the Grande Bastide olive grove, one of the largest in the 'département', produces a delicious olive oil that you can buy at the Opio olive oil mill, one of the few such mills still operating in the region. It dates back to the 15th century.

Opio and its Golf courses: Golf lovers will be served in Opio. Three golf courses are at their disposal: the beautiful Golf d'Opio Valbonne, the stunning Golf de la Grande Bastide and finally the Golf managed by the Club Med nearby. All three golf courses are literally minutes away from the house.

About Remi El-ouazzane

We are a family of four living in San Francisco. My wife and I are both French. We both work in the high tech industry in Silicon Valley. We love coming back to Opio for our vacation.

Remi El-ouazzane purchased this villa in 2006

Why Remi El-ouazzane chose Cannes - Grasse - Antibes

We discovered the Nice area back country when we stationed there between 2005 and 2007 for work related reasons. We felt in love with the village of Opio. We go back there every year !

What makes this villa unique

The house is uniquely positioned in the woods of Opio. This is such a quiet place, right in the middle of the nature but still very close to the big cities like Nice, Cannes or Antibes. The Opio city council is very strict when it comes to giving building permits which is something we care a lot about.

Perfect for our family

  • 5 of 5

We (2 adults, 4 children, 1 baby) had a wonderful time at this well-maintained property. Big garden for the children to play, well equipped kitchen, nice swimming pool, very quiet but shops/bakery within reasonable driving distance, washing machine, dish washer, all a family needs.

And an additional plus is the owner, Remi. He is very helpful and kind person of integrity. Thank you very much for this wonderful vacation!

Des vacances au calme

  • 5 of 5

Une villa parfaite pour des vacances reposantes! Etant de la région et habitué de louer des maisons pour recevoir famille ou amis, vous ne vous tromperez pas a louer celle-ci. Un emplacement exceptionnel car elle est en bord de foret et a deux pas d'un golf donc la verdure y est au rendez-vous ce qui est très rare sur la cote d'azur. Un bon compromis pour visiter les petits villages de montagne, bien entendu toute la cote de Saint-Tropez a Menton en passant par Monaco et même l'Italie a seulement 1h!

Et si vous connaissez déjà tout, vous pouvez faire comme nous, profitez simplement du calme, de la piscine et de parties de pétanque en fin de soirée qui sont possibles dans l’allée qui mène a la villa :-)

Passez de bonnes vacances!

Very clean and well equiped home

  • 5 of 5

Very nice and calm home, perfect stay for holiday. It is close to Grasse and approx 30-40 min to beaches in Cannes. If you invest 15 min more then you can also drive to Theoule sur mer with really nice beach. The house is well furnished. Kitchen appropriate equiped to cook for the whole family. The pool is new and water is perfect, you will love it.

Many thanks to Remi to make this nice holiday home available :)

Sehr schönes wundervolles Ferienhaus in ruhiger Lage. Sie sind in ca. 1/2 h in Grasse und in einer knappen 3/4 h am Strand in Cannes. Richtig schön ist es auch in Theoule sur mer. Das Haus ist sehr schön möbliert und in der Küche können sie für die ganze Familie kochen. Der Pool ist neu und sehr sauber. Wir können das Haus nur empfehlen. Alles sehr ruhig und erholsam.

Lovely hidden gem

  • 5 of 5

I have had several stays in this dreamhouse, retired in a quite pinewood minutes away from the all the main amenities, and within 15 minutes of some of the loveliest spots of the Riviera backcountry (Biot, Grasse, Valbonne...etc) and likewise from some of the nicest golf of the region (Royal Mougins, St-Donat, La grande bastide). The house is fresh (important under the french summer), fully equiped, and magically opened on a very large garden hidden from outside views. A perfect place as a base to discover the amazing region and to spend long days resting in the sun. It could/should be called "sans soucis".

Great house

  • 5 of 5

A lovely house located in a quiet residential area of Opio but not far from the village with all shopping facilities and not far from Nice, Cannes or Antibes. A very good place if you want to visit the region but avoid the crowded stations of the coast.

Beautiful swimming pool, garden and terrace to relax after visiting the region with friends or family. It is a lovely house where two families can stay comfortably and where you will find all comfort including books, games and even a piano.

Tout pour passer des vacances de rêve

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé des vacances de rêve dans cette très jolie maison spacieuse qui allie calme, confort, beauté, plaisir, et regorge de ressources pour toutes les générations, où on se sent chez soi, dans une région magnifique où le soleil et les bonnes et belles choses ne manquent pas !

Mis à part la très belle piscine, le jardin, la terrasse et les nombreux jeux extérieurs, la maison décorée avec goût et sobriété offre tous les petits détails qui font la différence (piano, lecture, jeux, choix de dvd, cd...) que ce soit pour des vacances en famille ou entre amis.

Les propriétaires, adorables, ont pensé à tout.

Pas de risque d'être déçu : rien que de belles surprises et de beaux moments en perspective !
