Beautiful home; outstanding location!

  • 5 of 5

We felt so fortunate to stay at the Old White Lion for two weeks this spring for a family reunion (6 adults, 7 children). With so few reviews at the time of our reservation, we weren’t sure exactly what to expect, but our experience couldn’t have been better. Jean-Richard was responsive, kind and professional, and made the entire rental experience a pleasure from start to finish. The house itself is large, well-maintained and very comfortable, with ample indoor and outdoor common areas to facilitate gatherings in any weather. The kitchen is spacious and well-equipped, and the covered poolside grill and table provide the perfect setting for outdoor dining. The pool is beautiful and roomy enough to accommodate several swimmers at once.

Although you may feel tempted not to leave home, the house is perfectly situated in the middle of so much beauty and history that it would be a shame not to venture out. Just down the driveway is the border of Saint Jeannet and the spectacular Baou de Saint Jeannet (which I highly recommend climbing; the view from the top is breathtaking!). There is a bakery (friendly!), grocery store, etc. just minutes from the house at the base of the Baou (easily walkable if you don’t mind narrow, curvy roads with traffic; we chose to drive), and the little village of Saint Jeannet up the Baou is charming and well worth a visit. We also spent varying amounts of time in Nice, Saint Paul de Vence, Vence, Antibes, Tourrettes sur Loup, Villefranche sur Mer and Eze.

For museum lovers, the Fondation Maeght is not to be missed. The nearby Renoir home and museum, though small, was beautiful; it was worth the short drive if only to take in the view and sit among the incredible old olive and citrus trees on the estate (though the home was wonderful as well). The Matisse and Picasso museums in Nice and Antibes, respectively, were nice stops, though like many similar museums, they do not include major works (which are generally housed in larger museums). Finally, oenophiles should take time to visit the nearby Vignoble Rasse winery—outstanding!

With all of that said, however, I have to point out that the best part of the Old White Lion is without a doubt the kindness of its immediate neighbors, Guy and Jocelyne, who help Jean-Richard with property management. They were warm, gracious and extremely helpful, making us feel like old friends from the moment we met. We eagerly anticipate a return visit and look forward to seeing them again!

Une sorte de "Nec plus Ultra" ...

  • 5 of 5

De grands espaces tant à l'intérieur qu'au dehors, et une piscine de 8m sur 16 avec une profondeur de 0.5 à 3m ! Nous étions cinq couples et avons passé un séjour mémorable. Les cinq chambres doubles et le studio et les nombreuses pièces garantissent l'intimité de chaque couple. Nous n'avions que l'embarras du choix pour prendre nos repas: la belle salle à manger stylée, la grande terrasse surplombant le jardin et la piscine, ou encore au bord de celle-ci, sous le patio aménagé comprenant barbecue et frigo d'appoint. Pour les soirées à l'intérieur, deux magnifiques salons peuvent recevoir près de vingt personnes. La gardienne Joce et son mari aux petits soins pour les vacanciers sont un plus pour la réussite de vacances sans soucis. La beauté des villages et des sites environnants sont splendides: Vence, Saint Paul, Tourette sur Loup. Depuis Saint Jeannet, tout proche, on découvre la Méditerranée d'Antibes à Nice, qui, avec Cagnes sur Mer, ne sont qu'à 20 minutes. Vraiment un des meilleurs souvenirs, ces vacances.

Proche du "Nec plus Ultra" !

  • 4 of 5

A la limite de La Gaude et de Saint Jeannet, dans ce merveilleux arrière pays niçois, nous avons passé 15 jours de rêve dans cette grande villa pouvant recevoir 5 couples bien à l'aise sans aucune impression de promiscuité.

Autant de salles de bains ou douche que de chambres doubles en plus de plusieurs toilettes indépendantes.

Trois possibilités de prendre les repas: la salle à manger stylée, la grande terrasse surplombant la piscine, et last but not least, le coin barbecue en bordure de celle-ci, en grande partie couvert et comprenant un frigo d'appoint pour les apéros et autres denrées fraîches.

La piscine de 16m sur 8m, profonde de 0,5 à 3m permet de s'y ébattre nombreux sans se gêner.

Un rapport qualité/prix très correct et une présence discrète mais efficace de Joce, la gardienne depuis sa maison voisine à 50 mètres de là, nous ont procuré un séjour sans souci.

Volontiers à refaire.
