About Bruno Le Dantec

We are from Britain, we preserve nature and have a salt-water pool (to avoid chlorine) and an organic vegetable garden. We have 3 children who study in France, Australia and Switzerland. Bruno works in the new technologies industry and Marie is painter-sculptor. We love travelling. In 2014, we visited India and Australia and in 2013, Japan, Spain and England.

Bruno Le Dantec purchased this house in 2000

Why Bruno Le Dantec chose Biot

We chose to live in this region for professional reasons but also for the quality of life. Skiing in winter and seaside in summer. We are in a very green and quiet setting. With 3 children, we wanted a large garden close to the town that we could reach on foot to have a cup of coffee, drop kids off at school, go to the library, etc. while being close to the airport and the most important towns (Nice, Antibes and Cannes). The village of Biot that dates from Middle Ages is really more beautiful and typical than the seaside towns. As the estate is fenced and everybody knows each other, children can safely circulate.

What makes this house unique

A large sunny house, a pool, a large garden, a fenced estate where children can go riding or play tennis and the proximity of beaches and mountain in an authentic medieval village.

Take motorway A8 exit 44 Antibes, follow Biot and Marineland. In Biot, go towards Valbonne. At the traffic lights, by Saint-Julien Chapel, turn right then 160 m away, turn left.

Biot and its 9000 inhabitants from all over Europe make this typical South-eastern village a quiet and tolerant place. In Nice, you will appreciate the Promenade des Anglais, the famous flower market and the old town with Socca chickpea flour galettes. In Cannes, you will discover the Croisette, the Palais des Festivals, the old port, the Suquet market, the luxury boutiques, etc. Antibes which is close to Biot offers many sport and cultural activities: Picasso Museum, the Jazz Festival of Juan-les-Pins, Marineland and its killer whales, night clubs, etc. Biot offers, in the heart of the old village, discovery activities and theme parties for active holiday-makers who want to be a bit away from the festive atmosphere of the coastline. The hinterland will interest holiday-makers seeking for sport activities and nature discoveries: mountain strolls, swimming in the river, visits of small villages perched on outstanding rocky cliffs, paragliding, etc.

Located between Cannes and Nice and 5 km from the coastline, Biot is the ideal village to rest and enjoy these activities. From the house, you can go down to the medieval village on foot (400 m) where excellent restaurants are waiting for you (La Pierre à Four, Le Arcades, Les Terraillers, etc.) and along the narrow streets of the villages, the glass-makers will seduce you with their strange and beautiful creations. One back home, you can cool off in the pool.

Perfect base for our week in the South of France

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week in Biot.

The house is lovely. A very modern, open feel to it. The huge sitting room and connection to the Sonos system ensured my teenage boys kept the house full of music all week.

Biot itself is picture postcard beautiful. We happened by chance to stay while there was some kind of festival which meant it was busier than normal in the evening. I am not sure if you have to normally, but the added numbers because of the festival meant you needed to make a reservation (only earlier the same same, it wasn't like you needed days of notice) to eat in one of the many restaurants in Biot.

We were six people, four teenagers plus my wife and I. And the room set up was perfect for us. One of the boys had a mate with him, and they shared one room with two single beds. And the other two boys had their own rooms. We were upstairs, which was lovely - and we were very grateful for the air conditioning up there. It was hot in the night for the others sleeping downstairs.

The range of seating spaces in the garden was lovely to have sun or shade at different times of the day.

The pool was really refreshing. It managed to stay cool despite the record temperatures through August this year. It's not a big pool but surprisingly deep and perfect for a few lengths, for cooling off or pool badminton...

The location is brilliant. It is only a ten minute amble into Biot. And with Nice airport only about 25 minutes away by car, and Antibe even closer, it was perfect. We walked to the museum on the other side of Biot, which was surprisingly impressive for a small town. I enjoyed the walk and the museum. We also did a walk from the house along the river, which was beautiful.

The house felt sae and secure, in the small community street behind a access controlled gate. It was peaceful, and a real joy to spend a week there.

Bruno was very helpful with information before we arrived and sent a few texts during our stay with ideas of things we might want to do, and I know would have answered any questions if we'd had any while we were there.

I didn't actually see it but my boys reported that the community tennis court isn't up to much.

Delightful location

  • 5 of 5

We had a thoroughly enjoyable week staying at this property. The house is set in a private, quiet and gated community yet only a 5 minute walk from the town of Biot. This proximity is a significant plus point and meant we were able to leave the car behind at the property and enjoy the short walk to town on many occasions. There is a good choice of restaurants and we found ourselves dining out most evenings. The house itself is of contemporary design and benefits from a good sized private pool and sundeck. There is also an outside dining area and table and a BBQ. All the areas of the garden are private due to the attractive and mature trees and bushes. The bedrooms and bathrooms are modern and spacious. You get the sense that the owner really cares about ensuring his guests have an enjoyable stay; helpful and relevant information was communicated in advance of our stay and check in and out was simple and quick. Biot is also an excellent location and ideally situated to allow prompt access to explore the wider region and sights of this part of the South of France. Highly recommended!
