Why Gerald Ward chose Nice
Built in an old family horticultural domain above Villefranche, dating back more than 4 generations, the villa was designed to take full advantage of its unique environment with a level, park like garden, a full sized grass (astro turf) tennis court discretely tucked away of the main view from the house, with guest bedrooms opening out onto terraces & the pool surrounded by lawn & palms. The master suite has a private terrace with panoramic views over the coast & city Perfect for relaxation in the summer heat, & also with full garden & pool lighting for evening entertainment & BBQ's.
What makes this Villa unique
The villa has been extensivley renovated over the years & has retained many of the unique features of the Nicois style, with high ceilings, shady terraces, marble & ceramic floors & forged iron doors & railings typical of old villas of the area.

Dear James & Thalia,
Thank you for your review,
I am please you had a pleasant & relaxing stay.
True Provencial house
Spent a week last summer and here is why I rated it a 5 star:
1- Very good location in between St jean Cap Ferrat and Nice. Minimarket, pharmacy, fuel station and other amenities are 1 min away by car.
2- Very quiet area with no vis-a-vis with the neighbors
3-Understanding and accommodating host.
4-Large house in general, and large master bedroom and with a beautiful terrace and jaccuzzi bathtub.
5-Very large AND FLAT garden (very rare in this area because of the hill configuration). That is the highlight of the house.
6-Last but probably the most important aspect is that this a house is used by the host, so it is very warm, with art pieces, DVD library, high end music system, and a garden full of toys for children such as trampoline, a swing, tennis court, hamac, balls, pool stuff, etc.
To note however, that the only view over the bay of nice (I think) is from the terrace of the master bedroom, but that is normal, as one can't have a large flat garden with no vis-a-vis with neighbors and still have views from the ground floor.
Also the media room smelled humidity because it was not used prior to our arrival, but I understand this was treated since then.
Overall, good value for money.

Wonderful relaxing stay
Had a lovely stay at the villa in Villfranche. The pool and tennis court kept the kids (and us) entertained for hours. Lovely private gardens for BBQ's during the day and we loved eating in the house with the doors wide open overlooking the gardens
The walk down, or rather back from Villfranche worked off the coffee and croissant but it was certainly worth it and parking was easy on the lazier mornings!
All in all we couldn't have asked for a lovelier villa in a better location. We will return.
