Local area and position: Cannes was developed by the wealthy Victorians and Edwardians who came here to enjoy the beautiful year round climate, and famous painters came to this region to live and make use of the unique light that exists here.
It has now become world famous because of the annual Cannes Film Festival which draws in celebrities from all over the globe. For these reasons, Cannes has world class shopping, containing all the top name brands as well as all amenities situated locally.
Cannes is perfectly positioned to enjoy the pleasures of the azure Mediterranean Sea to the South and the mountains of the Esteral and the Alpes Maritimes to the North. It is centrally positioned to enable easy motorway or train access to Nice, Monaco and Italy to the East and St. Tropez and the more rural Var to the West.
All around are beautiful Provençal villages.
The Villa: Villa Jolie is in a peaceful location with mature gardens surrounding it.
The grounds contain twelve olive trees, a lemon tree, numerous cacti and a very old pine tree which provides shade to parts of the garden. There is stone work in the garden with two types of bougainvillea (red and purple) climbing it. Another stone wall, next to the pool, is covered with jasmine.
The pool is splendid, varying in depth between 0.9 and 2.5 metres and you can have an uninterrupted swim for 17 metres. The pool is surrounded by terracing and access to the pool house with fully equipped kitchen and bathroom with WC.
Feedback: I have many repeat bookings and most guests describe the villa as beautiful, even stunning.
Location a little bit outside the town on a hill. Car recommened
Stayed at Villa Jolie for 7 nights as a family party of 8.
The villa is very well presented with plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms in the main house. We were all accommodated in the house and did not need to use the additional room in the pool house, but can see the advantage where there are additional people or more than 1 family staying there.
The main lounge area is very bright with plenty of comfy seating for all and a big screen TV with FreeSAT and a DVD player. There is also a large glass dining table with seating for 10+in the lounge area.
The pool is to die for - large and well maintained and has shallow and deep ends to match the needs of the various age groups.
There is a table tennis table and table with chairs on the terrace above the pool, which proved very popular during the evenings when it was a bit cooler.
Location wise the villa is well situated for seeing the sites of the Cote D'Azur with easy access to the main motorway. It is located on a hill in a quiet tree lined street surrounded by other upmarket properties of similar style. The villa felt very secure with electrically activated gates at both top and bottom entrances and shutters on all the door and windows of the property.
Big American style fridges with ice making were located in both the main house kitchen and at the poolhouse and came in very useful.
There is air conditioning throughout the property, which worked very well and whilst not really used during the day, was much appreciated during the night.
Richard, the propery owner, is good to deal with and always responds very quickly to any questions or calls for support.
Villa Jolie is thoroughly recommended where a large party want a bit of luxury and a great pool when visiting the area.
We came to Cannes to celebrate grandpa's 60 years jubileum with 4 children and their families; 9 adults and 2 children. The main reason we chose Villa Jolie was the beautiful, big pool and enough rooms with bathrooms for every family. We did not disappoint. Villa was perfect for our purposes. It felt like home. Also the pool house was in active use when we grilled and spent nice time together in the evenings.
We warmly recommend this property; we were very well informed and taken care of.
Fabulous Villa situated in a very smart neighbourhood. There is so much space in this villa that families can really spread out and find a quiet spot if that is required. Long wide balconies with lovely views just add to the charm of this villa.
There are various areas for alfresco dining which we made full use of..
We really did enjoy our stay.
Great villa for a large group with fantastic pool and separate bar and en-suite bathrooms for most bedrooms.
