About Elsie Mollé

Ex nurse in Toronto, my husband retired banker.

Elsie Mollé purchased this villa in 2003

Why Elsie Mollé chose Cannes - Grasse - Antibes

Near Valbonne which has the rare priviledge in the region of having 5 roads , at mid distance between the busy coastal area and the first slopes of the southern Alps .

Valbonne itself has a charming old village with cafés terrasses (featuring in the pleasant movie 'French kiss'), and a live modern part with bakery, fresh vegetables , memorable fruit stands , wines shops , in brief not taken over by real estates and banks like many other villages .

Several international schools and some faculties of the University of Nice are located nearby, in the techno park of Sophia-Antipolis.

What makes this villa unique

Free lease in a very nice closed domain of only 9 villas, located on top of a small wooden hill . Large ground floor with only one bedroom upstairs .Front and back garden all fenced.Very quiet with view on the valley and other hills.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Welcome: 4/5

Amenities: 5/5

Comfort: 5/5

Location: 5/5

Price quality ratio: 4/5

A stay of one week (7 to 14 July 2012), which went perfectly. Starting with a very warm welcome, the owners are very helpful without being omnipresent. The villa is very well equipped, ideal for children with its many outdoor games and a heated and secured pool. The environment is very quiet and the location of the villa is ideal for visiting the Riviera. Despite very representative pictures, the reality is even more beautiful. In short, we had a great time, to renew with pleasure. Alexis Nantes 14 th July 2012

Lovely Villa and great holiday.

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from two weeks in this lovely villa. It was very clean, very secure on a gated domain and had everything that you could possibly need. The pool was lovely and the hot tub was great. It even had a treadmill !! We felt very safe there as not only is the villa in a gated domain but it has electric shutters and an alarm. The area is lovely and quiet but only a very short drive to Valbonne which is a really nice town to sit and eat out in the evening around the square. We walked to the restaurant at the entrance to the domain a few times and it was very good. Daniel and Elsie were really very helpful and a pleasure to deal with. All in all highly recommended and we will definitely be going back.

Heaven on Earth At Fab Villa near Valbonne

  • 5 of 5

I cannot recommend this lovely spacious villa highly enough. The owners have thought of everything, from the fully equipped kitchen to big screen TV's and wireless. There's great security, a fabulous pool and hot tub, good parking, and lots of room to spread out with three large bedrooms and four private baths, perfect for myself, my petite maltese Poesy and my vacations Cathy, Martha and Luciano. Valbonne is only a mile away, with its restaurants and great friday market. Cannes, Nice, Antibes are also close. I can see why families with children adore this vacation spot with its backyard full of activities for kids. but its great for adults who want to swim and relax too. The owners could not have been accommodating and helpful. We now consider Daniel and Elisabeth to be our dear friends and look forward seeing them again on our next stay. Oh, we cooked dinner every night and ate on the peaceful patio and enjoyed the balmy summer evenings Oh, everything was spotless (literally!) and the house wasa stocked with lovely dinnerware, glasses, towels, and the washer dryer combo came in handy too. we drove to Moustier st Maries (through the amazing Gorge du Verdun one day and the next down to st. Maximin and the Saint Baume mountains to climb up to Mary Magdalene's Grotto.Another day up to Vence and the perched village of St. Paul de Vence and of course, a trip to Cannes (for lunch and shopping) and Biot (for glassware!) was essential. I have rented often in Europe, England, France and Italy and never have I been so impressed by a Villa.

Merci, Daniel and Elisabeth, for your hospitality and opening up your lovely home to us.

8 days in Villa du Bois dore Vallbonne sep 09

  • 5 of 5

Booking from Australia is always risky but in this case everthing was as detailed and more. The owners who speak English very well were helpfull with touring info and directions.We had a great 8 day stay at the Villa du Bois dore.Everything was we needed was there.

The villa is within a gated 24 hr secure domain and is fully fenced. It has nice garden, a heated pool with remote control pool cover ideal for families. There is a Boule pitch and table tennis. We used the car for touring and shopping. For days out to Cannes or nice use the local bus because parking can be a problem.

The nearby town of Vallbonne has bars and cafes and weekly markets.The markets are General,Ceramic,Brocante and Antiques. As antique dealers, the later was a highlight.

We recommend the villa to anyone.

Cannes, Antibes
Car: recommended

Valbonne is a pleasant old village offering a range of local stores, restaurants, and a popular place: The Place des Arcades. Friday is the day of the market. The famous restaurants of Mougins are only 6 kms away. Antibes with its port, its ' Vauban fort ' , its jazz festival and, much l better for the children, its unforgettable Marineland park, can be reached in a few minutes by car. Aqualand, a little further along the coast in Fréjus can also make a very pleasant day . Cannes is famous for its cinema festival in May, its walk on the “Croisette” or its street d' Antibes for window shopping . Those in love with the perfumes will go to Grasse or to the market of the morning market of Nice, on the Saleya Course, to discover the fruits and the flowers of Provence. The golfers will have no problem finding a course on the Cote d'Azur.
