Swedish/French family that now lives in London, but still loves to visit our lovely house on the French Riviera when time allows.
We were living in France between 1997 - 2005 and we really love the area! We decided to buy a house before relocating to London as we wanted a place to go back to when the weather becomes unbearable in the UK.
Robert Eriksson purchased this villa in 2004
The reason we bought this particular house is that it is very charming, located in a very calm area in prestigious Super Cannes with easy access to central Cannes and other surrounding villages such as Vallauris and Golfe Juan. It doesn't hurt that you can be on the beach in less than 10 minutes either!
Beautiful surroundings, very calm, excellent views of the mountains and the sea.
We've stayed at this charming villa before and this time we only stayed for a long weekend, but we have a lovely time. Different house keeper from last time, but equally friendly and helpful!
Weather was great, in comparison to the wet and cold weather back home. As for the villa, it was as beautiful as we remembered it with its great views and very calm surroundings. Despite it being December we had a lovely lunch in the sun and we'll definitely be back!
The villa is exactly as described in the listing so no surprises on arrival !
In fact the kitchen is far better equipped than you might expect in a typical period french home with modern appliances.
On arrival it was clear that great efforts were being made to prepare the property and present it correctly, again very pleasing. Overall the property was scrupulously clean - it didnt look like a 'rental'. The local representatives were also extremely helpful, answering calls promptly - they even replaced a faulty kettle the same day .
The description includes that it is quiet and perhaps remote, this is very true, dont believe that you will walk or cycle anywhere for bread / groceries etc. as it is a very hilly and twisty decent to the nearest town.
We had eight people in the villa and it coped very well, we didnt feel cramped at all.
If i was to make a suggestion it would be to update the bedrooms a little, they are perfectly serviceable but a little 'ikeaish' in terms of quality, not in line with the overall style and quality of the villa.
Excellent and beautifully maintained property. Three generations of my family had a most enjoyable holiday in this lovely villa. There was plenty of room for all to spend time indepently or together. Accommodation is very good and the kitchen is very well equipped. The garden is lovely and we all enjoyed the pool. Les Karias is an ideal holiday home.
We had an amazing week in this beautiful villa. The 360 degree views from the roof terrace are simply stunning, add to which the wrap around balcony. The kitchen is wonderfully equipped with high end appliances - definitely a home from home.
We spent the majority of our week either in or by the pool and were able to make full use of the variety of al fresco eating areas.
The only downside to our holiday is we only booked one week instead of two!
Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for an amazing time on the French Rivera - 3 large supermarkets are within a short drive, and the local town is just a 5 minute drive. The villa is ideally located for good access to Monaco, Frejus and 20 minutes from Nice airport - a fantastic spot.
Thank you Robert and family for sharing your stunning home.
The Villa is perfectly situated being only a short drive away from Cannes whilst being located in a peaceful and quiet area. There is a lot to do within the local area but it is also a great place to relax with the pool and outside facilities being second to none. The owner and the housekeeper are extremely helpful and were always around to help with any of our questions. Highly recommend this villa, thanks for a great week!
Fantastic villa and large pool! We were very pleased with our stay at this wonderful place and we enjoyed our drinks on the rooftop almost every evening. The view from there was to die for! The owner is very helpful and easy to talk to and we hope to be back soon😃. I highly recommend this place!
Les Karias is situated on one of the hilltops in Super Cannes, which is one of two quiet and prestigious quarters above Cannes and Golfe Juan. Cannes is a popular seaside town with beautiful sandy beaches and long promenades with impressive boats to be seen in the exclusive harbourside moorings. Cannes is also known for hosting the annual Cannes film festival in May, which is one of the world's oldest, most influential and prestigious film festivals.
Golfe Juan is also a beautiful seaside town with sandy beaches and its own port, but is much smaller than Cannes and provides a more relaxed atmosphere away from the luxury glamour of the Croisette.
Les Karias also provides easy access to the old town of Vallauris with its typical Mediterranean atmosphere. Vallauris is a city of arts, crafts and pottery traditions where the workmanship can be seen in many different boutiques and in the pottery museum.
The three town centres of Cannes, Golfe Juan and Vallauris are all less than 10 minutes drive away from Les Karias.
Squeezed between the sunburned plateau of the Var to the west and the soft mountains on the Italian side of the border to the east, the Alpes-Maritimes is primarily well-known for its coast, which is the most varied in southern France.
There are cliffs, shingle stones, broad sandy beaches and enchanting bays, fashionable Riviera cities like Nice and Cannes, splendid marinas with their yachts, luxury hotels - and the fashionable life on the coast. But the Alpes-Maritimes is also something else, the hectic French Riviera has a peaceful and at some places completely deserted hinterland with fantastic natural scenery and idyllic medieval villages.
