Jasmin is a petit, semi-detached villa with a private courtyard garden of jasmin (French spelling), shrubs and flowers with woodland beyond. An upstairs balcony and large terrace offer unsurpassed views up to the village of St Paul and the mountains behind. There is plenty of outside space ideal for enjoying a meal, sunbathing or relaxing in the shade. Both the terrace and garden are paved and have wrought iron tables and chairs.

Inside the villa has been lovingly furnished in a Provençal/'shabby chic' style with unique and charming pieces all sourced locally from brocantes and antique shops. There is a spacious living/dining room with a large sofa, 2 chairs and a dining table with 4 chairs. For your entertainment there is a flat screen TV with a range of English-speaking satellite channels, Apple TV or the internet using the 'Film On' app so you need a laptop/ipad or smart phone to access television). There is a DVD player, a selection of DVD's and books. Wifi is provided. French doors lead out onto the courtyard garden which has a table and chairs and comfortable lounge seating area. A small separate kitchen is well equipped with a large fridge/freezer, dishwasher, oven and ceramic hob and microwave. We know many of our guests enjoy cooking so we provide a wide range of pots, pans, dishes and cooking utensils. There is a small casual eating area for two. There is also a downstairs WC with wash-hand basin and a washing machine and a hallway with a writing desk. An iron, ironing board, clothes horse, vacuum cleaner and cleaning materials are provided.

One bedroom has a king size bed, fitted wardrobe with built in shelves, the other two twin single beds and a large authentic French armoire. There are mirrors in both rooms. Additional pillows and blankets are available if required. We provide free-standing fans for the heat in summer and wall fitted electric heaters which are very effective in the winter.

Our home is situated in an exclusive, gated, hilltop domaine of private one bedroom and two bedroom residences. There are 20 properties in total and approximately half of them are holiday rentals. It was formerly a hotel and in it's hey day competed with the Columbe D'Or! It is located in a prime but quiet semi-rural position on the Cote D’Azur between Nice & Antibes yet only 10 minutes drive from the airport and just 15-20 minutes walk to the stunning medieval village of St Paul de Vence. Domaine du Piol has a lot of history and character and enjoys an elevated position surrounded by woodland with views over the valley below. There is a large, shared pool which gets the sun all day with sun loungers, parasols and an outdoor shower. The pool is just around the corner from the villa but out of sight. The location of the villa is private, quiet and secure. There is only one other villa adjoining it and a small apartment out of sight, under the pool.

We want you to thoroughly enjoy your stay so we have tried to think of everything so you will be as comfortable as possible. If there is anything we can organise in advance of your stay it would be our pleasure to do that for you.

About Janet Hamilton

Jasmin Villa is owned by my husband and I. We have 2 children aged 11 and 9 years. My husband is an artist and I am self-employed. I manage this villa and our other rental properties in Ireland. I also work freelance as a management consultant within the voluntary sector. We live in Belfast, Northern Ireland. Our other rental properties are 'Bayview' Dundrum, Ireland, listing no. 86767, 'Rose Cottage' Greyabbey, Ireland, listing no. 1130644 and 'Mimosa Villa', also in St Paul de Vence, listing no. 18909. We pride ourselves in offering a 'home from home' experience for our guests by ensuring our properties are comfortable, stylish and well equipped.

Janet Hamilton purchased this house in 2010

Why Janet Hamilton chose Nice Area

My husband and I fell in love with this property when we first rented it in 2005 and were thrilled when it came up for sale several years later. The views up to the beautiful village of St Paul de Vence are breath-taking and there's nothing we enjoy more than sitting on the terrace or in the garden savouring the views of the village and mountains and enjoying its very beautiful and peaceful green surroundings. The villa is located in a historic domaine which feels rather like a little hamlet. It has a lot of character and charm. We are fortunate on the domaine to have a large, beautiful pool with lovely views right down the hillside to the sea. The domaine enjoys a fantastic elevated position and is surrounded by woodland. Despite its semi-rural location all the delights of the Riviera are only a short drive away.

What makes this house unique

Without doubt the views of St Paul de Vence are very special and we guarantee will capture your heart! The villa is situated in a very peaceful and private location surrounded by woodland. The large communal swimming pool is right around the corner - just a short stroll from the villa. We have taken great pride in renovating the villa in a delightful provencal style with lovely pieces sourced from the local brocantes and antique markets. We take pride in presenting our villa to a high standard and we hope we have thought of everything to ensure that our guests stay is as comfortable and pleasant as possible. We have many returning guests - which is a good sign that we must be doing something right!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Very stylish with great facilities.

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for a month over winter. Beautifully stylish with the owners having a real flair for design. Great for an escape from the worst of the British weather. Enjoyed all the facilities of the villa - efficient heating, wifi, tv and dvd- on inclement days and was lovely to get out and about in the area when it was sunny. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

Beautiful, welcoming and very picturesque villa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for two weeks at Jasmin Villa on honeymoon and had a wonderful time. It's a beautifully kept and very tastefully designed property. It is also very comfortable, contains all modern amenities and is located in a highly picturesque area. The views from the upstairs balcony were particularly stunning! What's more, the owner is very helpful: any questions we had were speedily answered and she also provided us with some lovely food and drink on our arrival. We would strongly recommend a stay at Jasmin Villa.

Good four star accommodation, village and shops all very close by, good base for exploring the area.

  • 4 of 5

Our stay at Jasmin villa was a very pleasant experience. We celebrated our 52nd Wedding Anniversary with a lovely meal in St. Paul de- Vence at Le Tilleul restaurant. Although I would not say the village is a walk away, especially when it is very warm,however, you can find parking spaces and if not the car park has plenty.

The villa is very comfortable and it was nice to have English Telly.

Thank you for the welcome pack and the wine which we enjoyed very much. Alan and Mary.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the wonderful feedback Mary. I'm so pleased that you and Alan had a great time. The village is 15-20 minutes walk away although I can understand it's perhaps not the easiest when it's hot! However, as you correctly state, it is easy to park close to the village. Thanks for considering our property as 4 star accommodation. I should clarify that reviews reflect guests experience of the property rather than a quality rating. We feel honoured that feedback of Jasmin has been so positive to date and we are always striving to improve.

A wonderful vacation...

  • 5 of 5

As we travel our way through Europe from Canada, one of our favourite stops was in St. Paul de Vence.

The chateau at Jasmin Villa was a great place to relax and enjoy the surrounding village!

A comfortable place to rest for a week before continuing on our journey!

Many thanks to Janet for the excellent costumer service offered to us!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the positive feedback John. It was great to have you and Elizabeth as our guests for the week. I haven't heard our humble abode described as a chateau before!!! Hopefully you felt like a king of the castle during your stay!!! Glad to hear St Paul de Vence was one of the highlights of your trip.

Exactly what it says on the can "Charming home in perfect location with village and mountain views"

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. Communication from Janet from our initial enquiry through to our stay was great. Property was as described, clean and well presented. Access to shops, restaurants and supermarket all within 10 minutes or less.

The location is quiet with stunning great access to this part of France whether you want to head to the sea or the mountains. Lots to do and see in the locality. We really miss the amazing view of St-Paul-de-Vence .

So book with confidence - your won't be disappointed.

Thank you Janet!

Location: Jasmin Villa enjoys a semi-rural location with stunning mountain and village views. It is ideally situated as a base for visiting the French Riviera and exploring the seaside resorts of Nice, Antibes, Cannes and St. Tropez as well as the historic mountain villages nearby. The most famous, St. Paul de Vence is within easy walking distance (15-20 mins approximately). This medieval village with its ramparts and cobbled streets, described as the most beautiful village in France, was once the home of many famous artists such as Chagal, Renoir & Mastisse and its association with art is still seen today with its magnificent art shops and galleries. The world class museum Fondation Maeght and renowned restaurant Le Colombe D'Or are both within walking distance.

The villa is just 5 minutes drive to the large supermarket of Leclerc and the fabulous new Polygone Riviera Shopping Centre with a fabulous selection of shops, boutiques, restaurants and cafes. There are a number of leading stores there including Printemps.

Monte Carlo is half an hour's drive, with the Italian border and Southern Alps both just 40 minutes away. The renowned ski resort of Isola 2000 is an hour's drive. The popular seaside resort of St Tropez can be reached in 1.5 hours (longer in summer).

Other Activities: Excellent Golf courses near Cannes/Mougins within 30 minutes drive, bike hire and cycling on the promenade at Nice, (20 minutes away) tennis courts and kayaking close by at La Colle Sur Loup (10 minutes drive), wine tours (just over an hour away).
