Located in the prestigious Domaine de la Vallée Verte, our beautiful Provencal style villa has been enhanced by carefully designed modern extensions to provide a spacious and luxurious home ideal for rental by large families or groups. All the main rooms have air conditioning. The heated, salt water infinity swimming pool, pool house, kitchen and bathrooms have recently been renovated using the highest quality materials. The house has 5 double bedrooms and can accommodate 10 people comfortably, 5 bath/shower-rooms, a large living room with fire place and dining area and a modern Italian kitchen. There is also a utility room with a back-up kitchen ideal for catering for larger parties. All the main rooms have doors opening onto a terrace or balcony with views over the garden to the pool. There are two outdoor dining tables with a total of 16 seats as well as 10 sunbeds.
The master suite has a large dressing room. Upstairs is a self contained suite opening onto a private 30sq meter terrace with lovely views across the valley. The fifth bedroom can be connected to the master to provide either a study or a nursery. Additional children's cots can be provided.
The kitchen was refitted this year and has stone composite worktops, glass fronted cabinets and a mixture of Miele, Smeg and Leibherr appliances including a Nespresso coffee maker and a steam oven.
A gas barbecue is provided on the terrace for al fresco cooking.
The sitting room is divided into 2 main areas - one area has a TV with cinema sound and a satellite decoder. The other area overlooks the garden and has a fireplace.
The grounds of the property consist of 2500 sq meters of landscaped park with a variety of beautiful flowering and fruit trees as well as native cactii and succulents. There are lawn areas for children to play on as well as a vegetable garden, fish pond and boules pitch. In addition there is a further 7,500 sq meters of private woodland to explore containing a children's playhouse and play area.
The 12 m pool is surrounded by travertine tiling and has an outdoor shower. The pool house is equipped with a kitchen with a fridge and dishwasher.
From the terraces there are beautiful views of the green hills of the nearby national park. This park has lovely walks and hiking trails along the river Brague. It is possible to walk to Valbonne by the river and in the other direction to the medieval village of Biot.
We have lived in the South of France since 2008. Before that we lived in Amsterdam and owned an apartment in Nice which we rented out to holiday makers for a number of years via this site.
Rob Bredenkamp purchased this villa in 2012
The moment we saw this house we could see it would make the ideal holiday home. Unloved for a few years, we have spent the last 12 months refreshing, replacing and updating just about every aspect of the house.
The home combines old world Provencal charm with a modern twist. The location makes it ideal for those looking for peace and quiet not too far from the glitz of the coast.
We rented the villa for a one week vacation for 4 couples. The location is great, 20 mins from Cannes but also Biot is a beautiful area, with very nice restaurants.
The bedrooms have private bathrooms, the swimming pool is heated and pretty much everything is brand new and high quality and it was decorated perfectly. Everything looks in reality 10 times better than the pictures and the pictures are v nice!
We usually rent in this area for vacations but this was the most beautiful house we ever found. Also, the owners helped us with everything and they were great. They also wrote a very good house guide describing the surroundings, recommended restaurants, shops, etc, a guide that I found extremely helpful.
Thank you Rob for a great vacation!
We stayed at this beautiful villa for 2 weeks over Easter 2014. Our group consisted of 2 families so we were looking for something spacious to accommodate the 9 of us. The villa is located in a residential area roughly halfway between the two gorgeous villages of Biot and Valbonne. It took us roughly 25 minutes to get to the house from the airport (I am not too confident driving on the right but Rob's directions were easy to follow) and he was waiting at house to welcome us on arrival.
We have rented a number of houses in France before but this was the first time directly from the owner. Rob treated us like family members coming to stay. After a quick tour of the house, followed by arguments amongst the children as to who would take which of the lovely bedrooms, we sat with Rob on the terrace and enjoyed a glass of wine while he explained all about the house and grounds and recommended places to visit. The weather was a bit changeable during our stay so it was good to have some indoor suggestions to keep the family occupied.
The house is just fantastic. It is Rob principal home and this is obvious from the moment you walk in. That sterile, impersonal,feel, in other rental properties is entirely absent here. The house is warm and inviting. There is lovely artwork on the walls and the furniture and decorations have been chosen with care. The kitchen is amazing with everything you could need and all the bathrooms are newly fitted out. The bed linens and towels were of the highest quality. The kids had an great time in the garden and pool (heated to just the right temperature for us) whilst we adults blissed out on the peaceful terraces enjoying the lovely views over the country side.
We will certainly be back
The villa is halfway between the charming villages of Biot and Valbonne with their restaurants, small shops and markets. Biot is between Nice and Antibes 4 km from the sea - away from the hustle during the high season. It takes only 25 minutes to drive from Nice airport, 15 minutes to drive to down town Antibes and 20 minutes to the lovely sandy beaches of Juan les Pins. The buzzing, glamorous centre of Cannes is only 25 minutes away
The property is surrounded by greenery and overlooks a national park. Close to everything but located in nature, it is the perfect place to spend your holiday.
There are also several golf courses nearby in the area.
