About Tom Stavnes
I am a lawyer, my office is in Oslo, Norway. My wife Margaretha is half French and speaks the language fluently. She keeps the contact with our housekeeper, the gardien of the Domaine and the various companies that help us maintain the high standard of the house. We have rented out the house part of the year since it was finished in March 2002. This activity has offered us so much pleasure in the contact with our leesses from around the world. We always try to give them a personal contact and offer them a stay that suits their needs.
Tom Stavnes purchased this Villa in 2002
Why Tom Stavnes chose Biot
We chose to build in this location because of the fantastic view and very nice location close to "everything". The Domaine is very nice, quiet and well kept. We personally love to be here, and enjoy all that this region of France offers: Nice beaches, charming villages, great markets, museums and lovely walks along the coastline and in the mountains. Important to us is that the location is ideal logistically with a minimum of traffic hinderances. So you are able to GET AROUND easily, which is not the case when you live in the seaside towns of the area. Want to take a virtual tour of the house?

This was such a great holiday experience. Tom and Margaretha have really thought of everything and the place is so well equipped. You don’t need to bring anything apart from clothes! Really child-friendly - they’ve thought of everything for kids and babies. It was all so easy. Villa is stunning and the area is really great to explore. Loads to see and do. Such a perfect spot for a holiday.
We had a wonderful time at Villa Soleil. The owners had thought of everything. They were helpful and informative. The villa was immaculate and well equipped. Couldnt praise it more. Thank you.
Thanks for your great review. This is our goal: That our lessees feel at home in a well kept house. We would be more than happy to welcome you back.

Place in the Sun
It was a delight to return once more to Villa Soleil. The Villa is aptly named as the Sun House, as we enjoyed the sun from early morning to glorious sunset at night.
We especially like the way that the villa is nestled into the hillside. It provides complete privacy on the patio, while we still get to enjoy an unencumbered view of the Mediterranean and village of Antibes. Even in Fall, we spent a lot of time sunning and dining al fresco on that patio.
The house itself is very comfortable, clean, and well-equipped. On this last visit, the fall evenings were spent lounging in front of the log fire. It felt very much like home.
The location of the Villa is especially good. It is close to the action, yet slightly removed for relaxed downtime. It is within easy reach by car to the technology park of Sophia Antipolis for those that need to work there, and the picturesque villages of Antibes, Biot, and Valbonne are only minutes away for markets and pleasure.
It is also nice to have Monte Carlo, Cannes, Nice, and Eze within easy reach by expressway, and to have the alternative of a scenic coast road for a lazy afternoon return.
Villa Soleil holds nothing but good memories for us. I expect you will see us again.
Thank you, Paul, for your very nice review. We agree to your descriptions, and hope that you return soon to visit.
Best regards, Tom
Perfect holiday retreat
our family stayed in this beautiful villa in June 2015 and had a lovely time. Villa was spotless and equipped with everything you may need, even a stair gate for the little ones! Villa is located on the edge of the complex so a short drive to the pool was required as we had small children who wouldn't have been able walk that far. Pool was a great size and never more than a few guests at any time. This is a very safe area as it is gated and guarded at all times, very reassuring! Location was great, no more than 15 mins to lovely beaches/shopping etc. definaty would reccommend this villa. Thank you for a lovely holiday.
