We arrived on Christmas Eve to a warm villa, beautifully clean and organised for us. The owner suggested that we might like their chef to make us a traditional French Christmas Eve dinner and we were very glad that we had. Anne, the chef, produced wonderful food, lit candles, dressed our table and made us very welcome. We discussed menus beforehand plus wine with each course. Our stay with relatives and guests coming and going during our one week stay made for a really delightful Christmas week. We took full advantage of local taxis to ferry us back up to the villa from Beaulieu, Villefranche and St Jean Cap Ferrat after many delighted lunches - outside in the sunshine on some days! We were very lucky with the weather. 16/18 degrees at midday. The views from the villa take some beating and it is very comfortable with delightful large bedrooms and excellent bathrooms. The photographs are an accurate portrayal of the villa. I really can't recommend it enough. It was too cold to swim but the pool for swimming lengths looked delightful. There was also a nice outdoor eating area which we didn't have a chance to use. There was even a large pine tree covered in lights outside. I couldn't have wished for a bigger Christmas tree. The owners, although we didn't meet them as they were away, were really helpful before we arrived. This villa would work all year round, is sophisticated and lovely. Don't hesitate to book!
From the moment we walked in we knew we had made the right property choice. The photos on the listing in our view didn't show the property to its full potential, so we were blown away upon arrival. There are full glass doors which slide into walls all around, giving magnificent light and views of the sea and mountains from all angles. It's designed and decorated to the highest of standards; furnishings, cleanliness, beds, pillows etc.
The open plan ground floor where you walk in has the kitchen, dining and sitting area - all large and spacious. There's also a toilet on this floor. The photos don't show this, but you walk out from this floor directly to the pool and garden patio area which is stunning - the views just can't be beaten. We spent many evenings relaxing outside, cooking on the gas BBQ and swimming in the lit pool which we had heated.
Downstairs are three great size bedrooms; one ensuite and the other bathroom between the other two rooms. All the rooms have glorious views and great furniture and furnishings. There is another lower ground floor with a bedroom and smaller ensuite bedroom.
The owners Jean-Pierre and Suzy are WONDERFUL - helpful and knowledgeable of the area. Jean-Pierre even offered to drive to the town to show us where the supermarket was. They met us upon arrival to show us around - they're certainly very proud of the villa and quite rightly so. They live just next door so are on hand to help with any questions or problems, although we had none during our stay. Although they live next door, they have a huge plot of land so you can't even see their home through the trees so can easily never see anyone until you visit the town.
Beaulieu is a nice 15 minute walk down (and then up) a steep hill and stairs, but it's all fully lit so no problems for us. The small harbour and town are lovely to walk around, and you can also walk the coastal path to the next town - remember your camera for the lovely views.
We hired a car, but you could easily get a train from the airport to the local station (via Nice) - it's not a long way but the train does stop at all the stops so can take a while. You'd then need to get a cab up/down the hill with your luggage. We'd certainly do this next time to save on the cost of a hire car.
We only left the villa twice in two weeks to go to the supermarket, and then once more for a trip to Monaco which is just 12 minutes away on the train. We'll certainly be back to visit again - thanks for having us.
We had a wonderful time at Villa Margarita and would definitely return! The views are unbeatable and the house is spacious and very well maintained. The house was perfect for us - we're a family of four (including 2 teens) and we travelled with our sister & her husband. The kitchen, dining room and living room are open plan on the main floor, perfect for the six of us to hang out. The three main bedrooms are one level down. Each bedroom is lovely and has a view - the master BR has en-suite, with another bathroom in the hall shared by the other 2 bedrooms. For 2 couples, it worked well, and the boys preferred the 4th bedroom all the way downstairs, which was added later and is best suited for kids versus another couple. The house is located a bit above town center, and can be accessed via car, or a 10-15 min walk down 150 steps and a few blocks - we enjoyed this walk but anyone with limited mobility would need to drive into town. Jean-Pierre and Suzy (owners) live next door and are very helpful and were lovely to work with. Beaulieu-sur-Mer is a charming village on the Riviera, with character and beauty, close to everything but removed from busy tourist areas, perfect for relaxing and a welcome break from visits to Nice, Monaco and other more commercial areas. We hope to visit again soon and recommend most highly.
We have stayed in this beautiful villa twice. The rooms are bright and airy, with a spectacular view of the sea. The furnishings and artwork are lovely and contribute to the relaxing ambiance. The beautiful gardens surrounding the villa are perfectly maintained, and the pool is amazing. The kitchen is very well equipped. It was a pleasure to shop at the market in Beaulieu, make dinner while gazing at the sea, and then sit at the dining room table with the same beautiful view. The bedrooms and marble bathrooms are spacious. The air conditioning in the bedrooms is individually controlled, and kept our rooms perfectly cool.
The owners live next door, and are most gracious and helpful.
The villa is more beautiful and light filled than the photos depict. We plan to return!
Villa Margarita is a gem located in one of the nicest towns on the French Riviera. The villa has a spectacular view of the sea and the morning sunrise. You feel at home the minute you walk in because the rooms are bright and modern with lovely paintings and a nice decor. The villa is very well equipped with everything you would need from modern electrical equipment to individual room air conditioners (our guests loved this feature) and entertainment options. There is also a heated pool and a covered outdoor dining area. The owners, Suzy and Jean-Pierre, are most gracious and cooperative, and respond immediately to any problem you might have. We have rented many homes in France, and Villa Margarita is definitely one of our favorites. We would highly recommend a stay in this beautiful and comfortable villa.
The gem of a villa was the highlight of our stay in the Cote d'Azure. It is truely more beautiful, open and light filled than the photos depict. It was perfect in every way: conveniently located within walking distance to town, quiet, impeccably clan, stylish and comfortable.
We loved the modern, well appointed kitchen with floor to ceiling windows offering stunning views of the mountains and sea. The master bedroom was comfortable with a marble bathroom comparable to a Four Seasons hotel.
The grounds and gardens were maintained beautifuly. The pool was the perfect temperture. It was difficult to leave the house and venture into town as were were so comfortable here.
The owners, Suzy and Jean-Pierre, were there to greet us and took care of every detail.
The house is also perfectly situated along the Cote d'Azure and we were easily able to explore the other areas including Nice (15 minutes), Monaco and Italy (30 minutes) and Cannes and Grasse (40 minutes). Beaulieu-sur-Mer was the perfect village to stay as it is large enough to have all you need but small enough to maintain its French charm.
We are already planning our return visit!
