About the property

5 bedroom villa in gated domain only a few minutes' drive to the town and beach

This fully equipped 270m2 Provençal villa is the ideal hideaway for a laid-back French Riviera experience. Located in a closed, secured domain above natural parkland, the delightfully peaceful oasis is only 15 minutes' drive from Nice airport, and only 10 minutes to the town centre, beaches, restaurants and shops.

This villa has it all, and if you want to take it easy, there's nothing simpler. Just laze by the swimming pool, prepare your meals in the outdoor kitchen, enjoy the Japanese-style jacuzzi bath, venture down into the fully sound-proofed HD home cinema with an amazing film library, or just take in the view which unfolds before you as you sit out on the terrace. The villa is made up of 3 levels and with five bedrooms has sleeping capacity for up to 8-10 people. High speed Internet access is available by wi-fi or from the various Ethernet outlets in the villa.

Just outside the gated community is a large recreational park with panoramic views over Nice and the Mediterranean.

For your convenience: You can use and enjoy the following items during your stay in the villa:

Jacuzzi - hot tub, pool, sunbed (8), BBQ, fully equipped kitchen, several options for eating - inside in the dining room or the kitchen counter, outside table on the terrace or Summer kitchen. Air-conditioning (in three of the rooms), ping pong table. Towels and linen provided. Maid service can be arranged on request (extra charge). And for your security, the house is located in a gated community and has its own remote controlled gate. In addition, there is an alarm system and we subscribe to a guard service.

For your entertainment: Home theatre with 7.1 HD system (Blu-ray and DVD) and a movie collection of over 1,000 titles, TV (HD) in living room, with French and satellite channels (Canal+) and DVD player. HD TV in master bedroom. Large monitor for video game consoles in lower studio with Xbox, and numerous games. Large book and magazine library (English, French, Japanese, etc).

Discover the French Riviera: The city of Nice is just 10 minutes away, with its old town, its markets, restaurants, museums, beaches, Russian church, cafes, shopping area, casinos, etc.

Within a 30 minutes drive you find amongst other famous places Monaco and Cannes, beautiful towns like Antibes and Grasse, and numerous small typically French villages like St. Paul de Vence and Eze. The area has been called home by quite a few of the world artists of the last century. You'll find museum dedicated to Chagall, Renoir, Picasso, Matisse, and many others who lived here.

The Italian markets of San Remo and Ventimiglia can be reached by car in about 45 min.

A wonderful villa set in a beautiful location with some amazing panoramic views. Just stunning !

  • 5 of 5

The villa was truly wonderful. From it's fantastic location, to it's stunning gardens and awesome pool and spa. We stayed in the villa for two weeks and it felt like a fantastic family get away home. The villa is a great size and was really spacious with lots of space for the whole family to relax. The BBQ was great and we were able to eat outside every evening overlooking the wonderful Nice seafront. It was extremely peaceful but at the same time just a short drive to local shops and indeed the centre of Nice. Patrick and Patrice were most helpful in preparing us to stay at the villa and through them we arranged a fabulous chef to come and cook for us one evening at the villa. My wife, my mother-in-law, son and daughter along with myself had a great time playing in the wonderful pool and just generally relaxing in the glorious sunshine. Many thanks for letting us stay in your wonderful home for 2 whole weeks. It was fabulous !

Wonderful vacation with four generations

  • 5 of 5

Four generations just spent a fantastic week at this beautiful villa in Nice, to celebrate my mothers 60th birthday. Everyone loved it! The outside area is so beautiful and has an amazing view over the Mediterranean sea. Stunning both day and night! The only problem you will have if you rent this house, is that you'll never want to leave it..

The owners and the property manager were really nice and helpful. We all want to go back to this paradise in Nice! I highly recommend it!

Outside area view and setting is wonderful!

  • 4 of 5

We had a very pleasant stay. The outside area view and setting is all you can ask for. It made us want to hang out in the villa more.

The pictures are well representative of the villa.

Fabulous Fiftieth Birthday

  • 5 of 5

I could not have been more pleased celebrating my Fiftieth Birthday with some of my closest girlfriends at this beautiful villa!

The accommodations were lovely, clean and very comfortable. The outdoor patio was our favorite place to gather, enjoy a glass of wine and drink in the view.

Upon the recommendation of the owner, we enjoyed a catered dinner one evening that was a gastronomical delight. Our delicious meal was served on the outdoor patio over looking the Mediterranean Sea and a gorgeous sunset.

The local manager was extremely responsive and helpful to us throughout our stay.

I would highly recommend a vacation here!
