Overview

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday villa in Mougins - Villa Canelle

4 bedrooms, 1 study/extra bedroom, 2 bathrooms, 3 shower rooms, 4 wc, sleeps 8/9

This spacious 240 m2 architect-designed house is furnished to a high standard with several original art pieces. It lies in peaceful wooded surroundings of 10,000 sq metres, and is reached at the end of a private road in a lotissement, where you will find beautiful woodland and canalside walks. The property has extensive terracing and its own gardens, including an 11m x 5.5m salt water system mosaic tiled swimming pool.

Arriving through the entrance hall complete with grand piano, you will admire the beautiful views towards the Esterel Mountains to the South West. The property is an ideal base for a holiday exploring the Cote D'Azur and Provence, with the famous Mougins Village a few minutes drive away.

External Location & Facilities: The property is in an exclusive and secluded situation at the end of a private road, and is accessed through secure electronically operated gates. The property is not overlooked by other villas and lies within its own grounds with ample parking at the rear for many vehicles. The forest area around the villa is owned but there is a more secure set of gardens that are tended by a gardener and also included the salt water swimming pool and extensive terracing of over 130 sq metres. The pool is looked after by a specialist pool company who will visit once a week to perform cleaning and maintenance.

The villa is equipped with top of the range bbq, as well as lots of external garden furniture for your enjoyment, and shady pergolas to linger under. The garden contains many exotic plants from banana palms, vines, orange & lemon trees to pines, olive & fig trees. There is a babyfoot table under its own terraced roof, as well as table tennis and the villa comes with other games for all to enjoy.

Internal Layout & Facilities: The property is spacious with high ceilings (reaching 6m in the living area), with wide corridors and stairs. The entrance hall contains a grand piano, and is on the same level as the upper bedrooms with their own loggia and access to the garden. Upstairs there is a contemporary bathroom to complement the ensuite shower rooms, and separate toilets.

The bedrooms are all air conditioned.. The sleeping arrangements would work well for two families or groups, with a double and twin upstairs together with 2 showers, 2 toilets and a separate bathroom. The two upper bedrooms have air conditioning. Each upper bedroom accesses an upper loggia which means the outside can be accessed directly including access to the pool by the upper terrace staircase. Linen & towels included.

The downstairs sleeping features a room with 2 singles, and shower ideal for children/teenagers and a master bedroom suite, which includes a Japanese bathroom, shower and separate area. There is also a baby cot/high chairs available. There is a separate study/playroom with its own oval wooden terrace area.

Inside the living area is open plan and spacious. The kitchen is well equipped with two sink areas, a long bar and top of the range appliances. These include Miele ovens, including steam oven, microwave, nespresso machine, mixing machine, toaster, induction plaque and extractor fan, diswasher, 2 fridges, freezer unit. Just off the kitchen is a separate laundry with washing machine, tumble dryer etc. The dining area has 8 chairs and there is also a separate additional table, if you choose to eat inside. The main living has 2 leather sofas, and TV.

The hall contains a grand piano, with spectacular view across to Pegomas, and leads out onto the upper terraces. Downstairs there is a separate study with its own terrace.

Open Living & Dining: The living area is spacious and open plan with living, dining area, bar and kitchen all working together. This area in the summer can be accessed through large sliding internal doors which recess into the walls, making the whole space connect with the exterior gardens & terracing.

The kitchen is state of the art with a separate bar area, and it connects to a separate dining area and onto large terraces for alfresco dining/lounging. The large terrace will comfortably seat 12 people under the pergola for summer dining. The kitchen is finished with red granite work surfaces and equipped with top of the range appliances/culinary aids for budding chefs. There are 2 fridges, fridge freezers, dishwashers, oven and steam oven, microwave, coffee machines, kettle, toaster, etc.. In terms of laundry there is washing machine, dryer etc.

About Nathalie M.

We are a mixed English/French family. I grew up in Mougins and my family is still here, which means they are close by in case of any problems.

Why Nathalie M. chose Cannes - Grasse - Antibes

We do also live here sporadically, but let it out for selected weeks. It is a modern contemporary villa, with open plan living that everyone who goes there loves. It is tucked away in forest, yet so close to amenities, the coast and many great holiday places.

What makes this villa unique

Having designed and built the house, it is the way we wanted a villa. Private & secluded, stunning views, alfresco living, great pool and safe for children & family. There are many lovely villas in Mougins, but we wouldn't swop..

Another fantastic week in this beautiful Villa!

  • 5 of 5

If you want to find a villa in the South of France that is modern, comfortable, quiet and very well equipped then I bet you don't find anywhere better than this.

We came back for the second year running and loved it. The beds are really comfy (plus there is quiet, efficient aircon in all the bedrooms), everywhere is spotlessly clean, the pool (salt water not chlorine) is great, all the electrical stuff works, there is table tennis and table football. Plus the Weber BBQ is fab. Last but not least, the owners are a pleasure to deal with - thanks again Nigel and Natahlie!

A wonderful house!

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful house in great surroundings! The description of the house is accurate, the property is clean and it is well maintained. The owners are very keen to help with any information you might need. The garden is lush and the pool is very nice. There is a nice long walk along a canal just by the house which is a big plus if you like running. We (six persons) spent two great weeks here and we all could indeed recommend the house others.

Back in UK and wishing we were still in Mougins!

Back in UK and wishing we were still in Mougins!

We had the loveliest time in the villa, everything was just as we hoped.

Beautifully designed with plenty of space. Loved having the big wide open sliding doors, the generous amount of bathrooms and the beautiful garden and pool.

We sat outside most nights, 5 adults, and enjoyed the BBQ with food purchased from Cannes market (open every morning except Monday, amazing) and the nearby supermarkets, of which we were spoilt for choice) and swimming pool, which you can light up for night time swims. The 'boys' loved the table football and we all enjoyed the table tennis.

An added delight were the fireflies!

We particularly appreciated it's location, very close to Cannes but also to the stunning mountains, lakes and villages nearby. We had day visits to Grasse, Cannes, Verdon Gorge (spectacular, some of us went kayaking here), The Luberon, Nice, Monte Carlo, Iles de lerins.. by boat from Cannes (beautiful), we even spent a day in Imperia in Italy visiting a superb state of the art olive museum and Italian produce store, the coastal drive down was simply spectacular!

Several days were spent, by popular demand, snorkeling/lazing/eating from the private beach at Plage Chez Joseph, Chemin de la Garoupe, Cap d'Antibes. Plenty of public free parking and then you can hire loungers by the half day or full day, approx 10 to 20 euros each but you do get superb waiter service for drinks etc, and constant attentive with spare towels, extra sun umbrellas etc. and a very nice restaurant, all with views of some of the biggest yachts in the world moored in the bay. A real treat!

Just beautiful!!!

Schöne Villa mit sehr schönem Pool

  • 4 of 5

Wir waren mit 2 Familien mit Kindern in der Villa. Sie ist sehr gut eingerichtet, in der Küche gibt es wirklich nichts was fehlt! Gepflegter Weber-Gasgrill, 2 Kühlschänke, Nespresso Kaffeemaschine mit Milchaufschäumer. Sehr schöner Poolbereich, gut gepflegt. Tischtennisplatte und Tischkicker fast neu.Die Bäder in den Zimmern sind etwas klein, ist aber nicht schlimm da es zwei zusätzliche große Bäder gibt. Sehr nette Vermieter, die uns viele Tips gegeben haben auch für Ausflüge, Einkaufsmöglichkeiten usw. Werden wir bestimmt mal wieder buchen, ein sehr gepflegtes Haus, empfehlen wir unbedingt weiter!

La sérénité au coeur de la Côte d'Azur

  • 5 of 5

We spent a fantastic Easter holidays (fabulous eggs hunting in the beautiful garden with my son)

It was so nice to enjoy such a peaceful retreat in the nature, forest all around though so close from all facilities

( the 2 supermarkets are down the road and the villages of Mouans-Sartoux and Mougins less than 3 km away to go for a drink or a nice restaurant). The modern and spacious architect house is very pleasant to live and nicely equipped. We can very easily share with 2 families and enjoy our privacy as all bedrooms even the children have en suite bathrooms. The big space around the pool and garden is ideal for nice dinners and shared time to spend with friends or family

I will strongly recommend this house. Marie CC

Un petit coin de paradis!

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passe un sejour fantastique. La maison est spacieuse, tres propre et extremement bien equipee. Ayant ete construite recemment, tout est neuf. Les lits sont tres confortables, la salle de bain japonaise est un regal avec la vue sur le jardin. Les pieces a vivre sont baignees dans la lumiere et la cuisine en open plan se prete extremement bien au mode de vie estival.Nous avons adore avoir un acces direct au jardin depuis le salon et la cuisine

Le jardin est grand, entoure de verdure et les enfants ont pu jouer en toute securite.La piscine et le reste du jardin profitent du soleil toute la journee, du matin au soir, un detail que nous avons tous vraiment apprecie!

L'emplacement de la maison est ideal, nichee au bout d'un chemin au calme et sans vis a vis.

Des vacances tres reussies et tres reposantes en grande partie grace au confort et a l'emplacement de la maison. Nous reviendrons!

Car: necessary

Situated near the famous hill-top village of Mougins, this secluded contemporary villa is nestled at the top of a beautiful wooded valley just below the Canal de la Siagne, providing local canal side walks/jogging straight from your door. You are between Cannes and Grasse - 15 minutes drive from the sea or from the world’s perfume capital - so perfectly placed for a varied holiday between the bustling riveria and its attractions, and the calm & charm of the Provence countryside.

Sporting activities are plentiful, from tennis to sailing to the nearby (3minutes!) celebrated Royal Mougins Golf Club. For the cultural, famous art galleries, including Picasso and Matisse are in the vicinity. Families will enjoy the beaches, Marineland at Antibes, local cinemas and the Cannes International firework festival every two weeks in the summer. Provence and the Esterel mountains provide fantastic walks and you are just 25 minutes from Nice Airport. You will wish you had booked longer.

Golf: Spoiled with choice.

Ski: Fantastic skiing just 1 hour from the house in Gréolières les Neige, Valberg, Isola 2000, Auron and nearby Limone in Italia near Tende.
