Provencal farmhouse with a private pool in a beautiful olive grove

Bedrooms 2
Space 861 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

All of our guests appreciate this completely renovated Provencal farmhouse that will welcome you for a peaceful stay, sheltered by the century-old olive trees. The pool and garden invite you for relaxation under the southern sun in front of the rolling hills of Provence… This house is very enjoyable for families, offering every family member a separate, quiet place, for resting under the olive trees or read under the pines but also for spending time together in the pool or on the terraces for lunch. There is garden furniture, which you can move around the property depending on your inspiration! For those who love the sea: it is about a dozen kilometres away. Several golf courses for amateur players are nearby. Hikers and horseback riders find the hills and the Alps a little more above. In the evening, you can go for a stroll and drink a glass of wine under the arcades of the historic village of Valbonne while the kids can play on the square… Good holidays!

About Véronique Fusée Sanchez

This is a happy family that loves to welcome people and share its passion for the magnificent and incomparable ground that is the Provence region!

Véronique Fusée Sanchez purchased this house in 1930

Why Véronique Fusée Sanchez chose Valbonne

This house has witnessed our family growing up for many years! To keep it in our heritage, we rent this farmhouse out for the pleasure of others! We maintain it, renovating it year after year. We love taking care of it…

What makes this house unique

It is a beautiful house on a solid base, having been here for so long… Its history is revitalising to us. At first, it was a small farm on which we cultivated olives. As the years went by, it became a family home. We have kept, at some places, the old stones from its original construction. We have made it our goal transforming it into a haven of peace and serenity, for relaxing and resting… Like many of our renters, we hope that you will rest and appreciate its calmness… You will be able to relax in the garden with laurels, lavender, rosemary, cypress trees, and olive trees whilst admiring the Provencal hills. You can enjoy the saltwater pool, escape and just let go…

Stunning propoerty

  • 5 of 5

A very well equipped, good sized house set in lovely grounds. Well located close to Valbonne and a short hop into Cannes or into the surrounding mountains. Gardens / terrace are immaculate and beautiful. Pool is excellent - we had a 2 year old with us and were concerned at the lack of pool fence but the set up of the terraces makes it relatively easy to keep an eye on the kids as well as an effective pool alarm.

Lovely owners are very easy to deal with who went out of their way to accommodate our needs.

We would stay again!

Un très beau séjour dans une bastide magnifique !

l'intérieur est délicieusement meublé et décoré... et les extérieurs entretenus et agencés avec soin,rien n'est laissé au hasard...

chacun a trouvé sa place, sous les oliviers séculaires,sur la terrasse ombragée ou encore au bord de la piscine...

Pour le bon déroulement des vacances,est à disposition des locataires, un livret qui présente les activités et visites possibles dans la région et aussi sont parsemés à différents endroits de la propriété des petits galets " écriteaux", qui nous laissent des petits messages ou recommandations.... à découvrir et à savourer !

Magnifique ! Parfait !

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons été ravi de notre séjour à villa Ste Rita des Oliviers. C'est une très belle prestation correspondant parfaitement aux photos. La décoration intérieure est chic et soignée, le jardin et la piscine très bien entretenus. Véronique la propriétaire est tout simplement charmante et accommodante. Nous gardons un excellent souvenir de notre séjour à Valbonnes. Un grand MERCI.

We will send you the itinerary upon request. Valbonne is a historic village that dates back to 1519 and its Arcades Square is listed as a historic monument. In there, you find very nice shops, artisan workshops, and Provencal restaurants of all price ranges. There are also some beautiful villages to visit, such as Opio, Biot, Mougins, and so on… Near Valbonne all types of nautical sports (jet skiing, sailing, water skiing, kite surfing, windsurfing) are available, as well as big game fishing, and excursions over the sea to Antibes, Cannes, Nice, Juan-les-Pins, the Gulf of Juan, Mandelieu, and more. You can also go see wolves in their natural habitats in the Mercantour Park, and meet dolphins in the sea off the coast of Nice. If you like good pasta, pizza, and cappuccino: Italy is less than an hour away! Take this opportunity for making a family excursion to San Remo, by the seaside! In winter, the nearest alpine ski slopes are 3 to 4 hours away from the villa (Gréolière-les-Neiges), so you can combine the mountain and the sea in the same day!
