About the property

Tastefully refurbished vila sleeps 8 and has a pool and stunning mountain views

Vue Tranquille is a beautifully renovated detached Provençal villa enjoying spectacular views across to the Col-du-Dragon and the Chaine-de-Férion. The villa is situated on a hillside, accessed by a winding road, with steep driveway down to the entrance. Benefiting from a private pool with security immersion alarm, it is set on a broad terrace with a lovely olive tree to provide shade and dine al fresco while admiring the spectacular views. There are some steep drops in the grounds and therefore care should be taken with small children. 1km to the hilltop village of La Roquette-sur-Var (pictured) and its 16th-century church with famous Italian paintings. The village is sure to charm you with its beautiful houses dating from the XVI th and XVII thC., its narrow streets and vaulted passage ways, pretty drinking fountain, beautiful doorways and external staircases.

There are a number of walks and mountain biking routes around the village, which allow you to explore the local landscapes, while the less energetic can take part in pétanque games in the village square or immerse themselves in the cordial atmosphere which reigns over the village of La Roquette.

The picturesque old village of Levens 5km for restaurants, shops, tennis and bike hire. If you can tear yourself away from the beautiful scenery, there are beaches at Nice c20 mins, Antibes, Aquasplash and Marineland at Biot, both 40km and skiing at Isola 2000, 70 km.

Vue Tranquille lives up to the name.

  • 5 of 5

The villa lived up to all expectations. Well decorated and kept, all the requirements for a home from home holiday. The owners are friendly, helpful and accessible and provide an excellent information pack.

As the name suggests, the views are breathtaking and the sense of privacy is great, due to the location (high in the hills) and the layout of the gardens. This also allows a large group of people to have their own space when required.

The swimming pool is a much welcomed resource and well used in the hot weather or after a long walk. There are other activities such as Boules, table tennis and board games provided.

A car is essential and the road to and from St Martin du Var is steep and twisty and takes some getting used to but it is possible for the able and active to walk to and from the villa on a cycle route which crosses the road 3 times.

The villa is in a good location for striking out to Nice, Monaco, Cannes, Antibes etc. But also good for getting to walking routes, gorge walking, cycling etc.

We had a fabulous family holiday and the consensus is that we would like to return at some point!

Beautiful House to "Get away from it all!"

  • 5 of 5

My family of 6 stayed very comfortably at Vue Tranquille for 2 weeks this year and had an amazing time. It is a beautiful property, with stunning views from your sunbed and was perfect for our needs - well equipped, very clean and comfortable. Although away from it all (you definitely need a car), the location is within easy reach of Nice and other Cote D'Azur resorts. We thoroughly enjoyed our time and would recommended to our family and friends.
