About the property

Villa La Lavande, Valbonne, Provence-Alpes-Cote DAzur, France - Very Quiet And Peaceful Location, 6 Minutes From Valbonne And 22 Minutes From The Beaches Of Cannes

Villa La Lavande.. "In the middle of nowhere but in the heart of everywhere" This was a quote from a guest from last year, so we thought we'd use it! Another quote: "You could be in the Perigord (not a sound)" and yet just 12 minutes from the ancient Village of Mougins with it's (World) famous 5* restaurants - and just six minutes from the Valbonne Square - the place to be on Friday or Saturday night. You have boulangeries minutes away; with Carrefour Market 3 minutes from your electric gates! And of course 22 minutes later you can be by the sea.

Villa La Lavande has two floors, with four bedrooms (2 master suites and 2 guest rooms) and four bathrooms / shower rooms, as well as a 1,780 sq. m garden with twenty seven 300 plus y/old olive trees! The stone floors throughout help keep the villa cool and welcoming. The master and first guest room have sea views. There are five separate terrace areas and a huge 48 square metre "auto covered" terrace and outside eating area overlooking the pool and the sea.

Outside we have two areas to eat - one under cover of the "sun roof" and the other near the bar-b-q area. The pool is heated (28-30 deg C May - October) and the outside pool shower room (hot water) is adjacent to the pool. For those of you who want to party in Cannes and Juan Les Pins (or take a boat to St Tropez (45 minutes), but want to have a retreat within easy reach of the hot-spots, then this is the place to be.

About Simon

We lived in the South of France (Cannes, Le Cannet, Super Cannes, Mougins and Chateauneuf) from 2002 to end 2011. We lived there with our four sons and during the Summer usually let our home to international clients. We have been known to Owners Direct since 2003 and we are happy to provide references should you need one. It's always a nervous when you send your first deposit - so don't be afraid of asking for references! We know the area very well and can recommend chefs who will cook for you (and tidy up!). We will always recommend places to go where you won't get ripped off. We can tell you where not to go as well.

Simon purchased this villa in 2010

Why Simon chose Châteauneuf

As we said in the beginning about us - we lived in France for a long time and have had several properties. We did what most people do when they first arrive in France on the Cote, and that is live as close as possible to the Sea. As we slowly moved a little further back into nearly le L'arrière-Pays, you find peace and tranquillity.

Not only can you enjoy the glamour of St Tropez, Monaco or Cannes, you are so close to the lavender fields, olive groves and rows of ripening vines in the Provençal countryside. You can simply people-watch over a strong coffee & croissant six minutes away in Valbonne in the quaint medieval market square with red mountains glinting in the sun... There is something for everybody down in our location, what could be more perfect?

What makes this villa unique

Incredibly well situated - don't under estimate the stress of getting to St Tropez in peak season - it can take 5 hours from Nice Airport and 5 Hours Back again! We are just 15 - 20 minutes away. Fancy driving up to Gourdon - another incredible medieval village - why not stop on the way and do a spot of Go-Karting with the kids - D3 toward Gourdon - Greolières - Caussols and it's just 2.5 Kms away! 10 - 15 minutes from the Villa. Or get yourself some perfume or eau de cologne from the Perfume factories in Grasse - 10 minutes away - my favourite is Sportissimo. Or drive over to Mougins (12 mins) and dine in the best restaurants in the area - our favourite is Le Bistro - ask for Alan (he's the owner and been there 25 years+, or Delphine. Nip down to the Forville Market in Cannes..
