Situated in a highly sought area called the Basse Californie. Minutes away from all the shops, beaches, casinos, nightclubs, but still located in a quiet peaceful area. The property consists of a very large garden, one of the largest in this stretch and it's completely private. None of the other residents have access! When at the pool, you will have complete privacy enclosed by the lush Mediterranean vegetation that surrounds it. The flat has been completely renovated in 2011 and just had a fresh makeup in February 2016. The mattresses the pillows have been chosen to ensure the utmost comfort, paired with high quality duvets and linens. There is air-conditioning in the 4 large bedrooms, granted the marble floors keep the entire place cool. Please note that the beds in the children's room are only for kids or teens. The swimming pool can be heated, even if in the summer it's usually at 29°C since the sun is on it almost the entire day. (Note, swimming pool season is from late May to end of September. Sometimes depending on the weather it can be stretched out to mid October.) There are 4 allocated parking places in the courtyard and could accommodate more if needed. There are no other privatized garden has large as this, located near the beaches.

About Monica Lebel
We live in London
Monica Lebel purchased this Apartment in 1960
Why Monica Lebel chose Californie Pézou
The property has been in the family for almost 60 years. For 3 generations it was the family summer home, but since many have moved away and we now have decided to rent it to help pay for the cost of the garden maintenance.

Beautiful property in a fantastic location!
We have recently returned from a great stay at Villa La Vigie. Delighted that the property and grounds look just like the pictures - beautiful interiors and gardens and very well appointed for our two week stay.
We enjoyed lazy days poolside and BBQ-ing and loved that we were also so close to La Croisette and the old town of Cannes. Great for wandering out for a walk or lunch/dinner; and Cannes is obviously superbly located for trips elsewhere in Provence etc. as well. Being in a residential area worked really well - thanks to the owner we arrived with great tips (and a handy map) directing us to superb local amenities (butcher, baker, deli, pharmacy, ice cream shop!) all within a very short walk. This, together with the proximity to town, made for a perfect combination.
We were also impressed with support 'on site'. Check-in/out was very straightforward and welcoming and to the extent we had any questions during our stay these were promptly answered. It was also nice to see the gardens/pool regularly maintained during our stay and we appreciated the offer to arrange mid-week cleaning/linen changes (etc) which worked very well. When we returned home our security deposit was promptly returned and communication with the owner throughout has been really helpful and friendly.
All in all, a lovely holiday that worked very well for our family group (three generations). Thank you very much.
The venue is amazing – beautiful flat with very high quality finish. Ideally located. The garden and the pool are just incredible. The view from the terrace is stunning. The owner is lovely and made sure we were having the best time in Cannes – everything was really perfect
We adored this house, stunning stunning stunning
The garden, the rooms, the facility's, the pool infact everything screamed stunning!
We Would stay here in a flash again.
So very private but yet 25 mins walk to the centre of Cannes.
10 of us enjoyed the house and we felt we all had such space and it never felt crowded.
The taxi did have a little bit of trouble finding it at first but then we discovered Uber and they were fab.
The hill at the side of the house gave a slight shortcut to town but it's extremely step on way back up, but it kept us all fit!
The tenants above were ever so quiet and very helpful.
I would truly recommend this home.
We fell in love with it .. you will too.
Beautiful villa in perfect location!
This villa was everything the pictures and description promised it would be. The stars of this rental are definitely outside - the view of the Mediterranean, the patio with an outdoor dining set and lounge chairs, the beautiful palm trees and flowering plants, and the private swimming pool with more lounge chairs and a covered seating area, of course!! This setting made for a perfect, relaxing vacation for our family of five.
There were five spacious bedrooms with ample storage. (We didn't use the 5th bedroom with the bunk beds as our three children were all too big for those.) The kitchen has all appliances, cookware, utensils, etc. that you could want, and there was a fully-stocked supermarket about 10 minutes drive from the villa. The main room had plenty of comfortable seating, a fireplace, a large dining table for 8+, a large TV we used to watch a few Euro Cup matches, and gorgeous chandeliers. The entire villa had marble floors and an elegant white, black and gray motif throughout. There were other residents on the second and third floors of the building, but there were no problems with noise and we had the private use of the outdoor space.
We had a rental car for sightseeing purposes. But, if you plan to stay in Cannes, you really can walk just about anywhere you might want to go - nearby glacerie (ice cream shop), Rue de Antibes (main shopping street), Croisette, beach, watersports, Festival Pavilion, and several restaurant and café options.
Monica (the owner) and Katherine (the local contact) made sure we had everything we needed and were available to answer questions before and during our visit. I would recommend this fabulous villa to any family or group that wants to enjoy a relaxing holiday on the French Riviera!
