For rent or for sale. Located on the foothills of Golfe-Juan between Cannes and Antibes, minutes from the center of the village and the beach, Villa la Pokade was built and designed in the finest French Riviera tradition starting with its facade crafted of local sienna stucco and its red tile roof. The beautifully landscaped grounds feature a terraced garden with a variety of tropical flowers and plants including palm, almond and olive trees, cactus, lavender and many other flowering shrubs and plants. Down a flight of stairs below the entrance is a large infinity pool surrounded by a stone terrace as well as other open and covered terraces with ample outdoor lounging and dining furniture. Wherever you decide to relax, you'll enjoy beautiful and peaceful views of the garden. This five bedrooms property boasts all modern comforts and conveniences including ensuite bathrooms, air-conditioned rooms, high-speed Internet access, cable television, DVD player and music system. Free local and international telephone.

Surroundings: The bay of Golfe-Juan, nestled between the Cap of Antibes and the Îles de Lérins in front of Cannes, is well protected from the winds. A wide range of golf courses and seaside activities is on offer, from walking or lazing about on the sandy beaches, to visiting old harbors and medieval ramparts and many museums or other cultural activities. Here you'll find a full range of shops, services, cafés, restaurants, supermarkets and weekly open-air markets and antiquities shops. And within easy driving distance in a 3 miles radius are the larger towns of Juan les Pins, Antibes and Cannes. Other delightful French Riviera towns and villages, such as Mougins, Biot or Saint Paul de Vence are also easy ½ day trips.

The décor combines comfortable contemporary furnishings accented by a palette of colorful walls and a variety of antique pieces. And the property boasts all modern comforts and conveniences including air-conditioned rooms, high-speed Internet access, cable television, DVD player and music system.

About Michel Pommier

Although living in the US since 1979, I always wanted to go back to the Riviera, in general, and to the village of Golfe-Juan, in particular, where I spent endless summers with my family when I was growing up in France. Since 2006, I am enjoying La Pokade 4 to 5 months a year. Between sailing, skiing, hiking and golfing, little time remains to relax but reliving his childhood 'souvenirs' is fun for a happy retiree.

Michel Pommier purchased this villa in 2005

Why Michel Pommier chose Cannes - Grasse - Antibes

An opportunity stroke in 2005 when my cousin sent me pictures of a provencal house nested on the hills above Golfe in a peaceful and very private setting but only minutes away from the buzz of Antibes, Juan les Pins and Cannes. Keeping the old walls and the original character of the property, I had the house entirely rebuilt, an infinity pool was added and a new soothing garden was created. Since then friends and family are joining me every year when I am down there. A sure sign that they love the place!

What makes this villa unique

The seclusion that La Pokade offers after a day at the beach, golfing, hiking or visiting the surroundings, is a gem. Noise is reduced to hearing the crickets or the birds singing, or the wind in the 'pins parasols'. The property offers total privacy and allows real rest. Kids have a safe environment to play and families can gather on the terraces around the pool or in the summer kitchen for memorable moments.

Wunderschoenes Haus an der Côte d'Azur

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben hier mit unserer fünfköpfigen Familie (Kinder 10, 13, 15 Jahre alt) 14 Tage Sommerurlaub verbracht und die überaus kompetente und freundliche Buchung mit dem Vermieter zu schätzen gewusst.

Es handelt sich um ein sehr schönes, geräumiges und sauberes Haus, mit einer geschmackvollen und hochwertigen Einrichtung in allen Zimmern. Die große und gut durchdachte Küche eignet sich sehr gut zum Kochen, eine Außenküche im Garten mit Blick auf den Pool ist zum Grillen gut geeignet. Jedes Zimmer verfügt über ein eigenes Bad, was zu einem entspannten Aufenthalt mit beiträgt. Das geräumige Wohnzimmer ist ebenso ansprechend.

Der weitläufige Garten lädt zum Boule- und Federballspielen ein, der Pool ist sehr sauber und schön gestaltet. Das Haus befindet sich in einer sehr ruhigen Lage nicht weit vom Meer entfernt.

Die Nähe zu Städten wie Antibes, Cannes, Nizza, Saint Tropez und Grasse erlaubt diverse Ausflüge. Der freundliche Vermieter war stets darum bemüht, uns den Aufenthalt so angenehm wie möglich zu gestalten. Wir können dieses Feriendomizil auf jeden Fall weiterempfehlen, da wir uns hier sehr wohlgefühlt haben und würden unsere Ferien hier gerne wieder verbringen!

Wir haben mit unserer fünfköpfigen Familie (Kinder 10, 13, 15 Jahre alt) 14 Tage an der Côte d'Azur verbracht und dieses Haus sowie die überaus freundliche und kompetente Abwicklung mit dem Vermieter zu schätzen gewusst. Großzügiges Haus in absolut ruhiger Lage nicht weit vom Meer entfernt. Sehr schöne, geschmackvolle und hochwertige Ausstattung in allen Zimmern. Das ganze Haus ist sehr sauber und gepflegt. Große, sehr schöne Küche, in der es sich sehr gut kochen lässt sowie eine Außenküche mit Blick auf den Pool. Das Haus eignet sich sehr gut für einen Familienurlaub, die Nähe zu Städten wie Cannes, Nizza, Antibes, Grasse und Saint Tropez sowie zum Meer erlauben viele erlebnisreiche Ausflüge. Der Pool ist großzügig, im weitläufigen Garten kann man Boule und Federball spielen. Die Vermieter erwiesen sich sets als hilfsbereit und freundlich. Wir können diese Immobile nur wärmstens weiterempfehlen, da es uns hier sehr gut gefallen hat und wir hier unsere Ferien gerne wieder verbringen würden!

A nice quiet Villa

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous villa. We were a group of friends together from around the world, some with children and some without. The layout was perfect with a beautiful private garden and a large pool. Worth getting up early to watch the sun rise over the ocean bay as many times as possible! We stayed for two weeks and it was a true home from home. Can't wait to go back.

Superbe séjour dans un cadre reposant

  • 5 of 5

Très belle maison de caractère, typique de la cote d'azur où il fait bon vivre que ce soit dans la journée avec piscine et jardin ou sous le préau pour les apéritifs et repas du soir. Il y a tout le confort moderne dans cette maison de charme. Elle est assez proche de la cote pour le coté festif du séjour mais en reste suffisamment loin pour profiter de son calme reposant. On s'y sent bien. La fin du printemps est une période idéale pour profiter de la végétation en pleine explosion sans trop grosse chaleur. Accès facile avec l'autoroute et l'aéroport très proches. A refaire.

Easily, one of the most glorious vacations ever!

  • 5 of 5

This house was a highlight of our trip to France. We had a wonderful stay for a week and would be delighted to return. Sitting by the large pool with the birds singing above was so relaxing, so inspiring. It was a perfect location to use as a base to visit this wonderful part of France. There is so much to see in the Riviera, but we also wanted to make certain that we spent time enjoying the house and pool. We did some wonderful sightseeing including Cannes, Antibes, Nice, Monaco, Saint Paul de Vence, Grasse and Gourdon. We spent a full day at the beach in Juan Les Pins. But we really enjoyed our time at the house, particularly playing boules (the French petanque) and ping pong as a family. The owners made us feel very comfortable and gave us a lot of good recommendations. Everything in the house was top notch, including

the gourmet kitchen and the large bedrooms, which made our trip even more

enjoyable. We highly recommend this house for your French Riviera vacation!
