We are an Australian family who have enjoyed, for some years, wonderful holidays with family and friends as tenants at Villa Gezanne.

Gezanne recently came up for sale and we were fortunate to become the new owners. Much to our delight, the previous owners - Marian and her daughter Briane, who had welcomed us so warmly to the property for many years, agreed to continue to greet guests to Gezanne and look after the property. Their local knowledge, kindness and enthusiasm has been wonderful for us and other guests over the years. We were drawn to Gezanne because of the house's character, spacious garden, sizeable pool, pleasant views and its great location - in a quiet secluded area but just a not far from the beach, the village of Biot and Antibes. Gezanne is a great base to explore the Riviera and the Alpes Maritimes and each year we find more and more interesting places to see and things to do.”

The rooms are very spacious and light. The house has a welcoming feel to it. The pool is larger than normal for a private villa. The garden is secluded and the surrounding area is quiet.

BEAUTIFUL VILLA IN HANDY LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here with my parents and our very young children in May and Marian and Briane could not have made us all more welcome and made sure that the villa was what we were looking for before we booked. It really was beautiful and very clean, with stunning views and a real holiday feel. Our younger boy needed a doctor during our stay and Marian was so helpful in giving us a range of surgery contact details with reviews of suitability! We also left a toy which was posted back to us on our return home.
You do need a car to get out & about but we did sucessfully catch the bus back from Biot to the villa with no problems. The area is beautiful, the shops really handy and it was great to have only a short drive from and to the airport. (I'd reccomend a smaller car if possible as the streets into Biot are quite narrow and a challenge with our monster people carrier).
In all we had a fantastic time and would highly reccomend this villa.

BEAUTIFUL VILLA/ POOL, FANTASTIC LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
We spent a week at Villa Gezanne with friends in July 2013 (4 adults and 4 children), and would reiterate what other reviewers have said - it's a beautiful, clean, spacious villa - great, private location, pretty garden and a fantastic pool with (especially important for us as our friends have young children) a full, lockable pool screen. The villa itself is extremely well equipped, and impeccably maintained - great BBQ! And Marian was really friendly and helpful throughout our stay, including leaving a "welcome pack" of essentials, which was much appreciated.

As others have said, the pool makes it difficult to prize the kids (and the adults!) away but, when we did venture out, we found Biot to be charming with fabulous restaurants in the square, beaches within 10 minutes' drive, a Carrefour around 5 minutes away and quick access to the main roads to Cannes, Nice, Monaco etc.

Highly recommended, would definitely visit again.

GREAT PLACE FOR A HOLIDAY!

  • 5 of 5
I was in a group of 9 adults who holidayed in this villa and we loved it. The villa itself was great; plenty of room for us all and very well equipped & maintained. The BBQ terrace and pool area were excellent.
Definitely need a car for this villa but the supermarket, boulangerie, etc were really easy to get to.

Briane & Marian were lovely. Communication before we travelled was good and once we were at the villa they were really friendly but not at all intrusive. A particularly nice touch was Briane pre-stocking the kitchen for us with a couple of essentials because we arrived later than the shops were open and she didn't want me to go hungry due to the fact that I was pregnant.

Overall, we had a fantastic holiday, I would definitely recommend this villa and would love to stay there again in the future.

FANTASTIC HOLIDAY VILLA

  • 5 of 5
We had a fantastic stay in this beautifull villa. There were 5 adults and 5 children. The villa is very spacious, and in exellent condition. The lay-out is perfect and the pool was a great size, warm and clean (hence it was very difficult to get the kids out of it !)
The location is quiet, close to Biot and Valbonne and a 10 min drive to the beach.
The facilities inside the villa were top notch, including a new gas webber BBQ that was a particular favorite. Fully equipped kitchen with 2 fridges, great TV/dvd , table tennis, and more.

Both Briane and Marian were fantastic and are on hand for any info required.


We would recommend this villa to anyone and would love to visit again.

THE PERFECT HOLIDAY VILLA

  • 5 of 5
We spent wonderful 3 weeks in Villa Gezanne in Augusts 2012 having visited previously in 2004 and are looking forward to spending more holidays in this beautiful villa north of Biot - it is ideal for a large family with its large bedrooms and bathrooms all in excellent condition.

The villa is spacious and although for some days there were 8 adults and 4 children staying there was always plenty of space both inside with a spacious kitchen and large reception room – with ultra modern television – or around the beautiful pool which has been newly tiled. We were hardly in the house during the day enjoying meals on the large terrace or around the pool and night-time table tennis and swimming in the illuminated garden and swimming pool

Marian’s warm welcome and helpful attention is invaluable and although the property has been sold she and her daughter Briane are on hand at all times with useful local information and assistance in the villa.

Since we visited in 2004 the villa has been upgraded with a large gas BBQ, large fridge/freezer in the kitchen – the older one is in the garage giving extra space for hungry families! The supermarket is just minutes away (by car) providing everything you could possibly need for your stay.

The local villages of Biot, Valbonne and Mougins are a delight to visit both during the day and in the evenings with many restaurants, both casual and fine dining. Cannes and Nice are only a short drive away and although we were there during August it was no problem to drive down to the coast with its many lovely beaches.

This may sound like a travel brochure, but I cannot emphasise how ideal the villa was for our family - this was a really special holiday for us all.

ADAMS FAMILY HOLIDAY...

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful holiday here. Weather was fantastic, accommodation was spacious and homely - with everything that you needed for a family. Proximity to the local supermarket was good, but you definitely need a car to get to the beaches - the best of which was Cannes (La Bossa) approx 20 mins away. That said, the children loved the pool (which was clean and warm) and didn't really want to go anywhere else! Hospitality from the owner was great, on hand to assist if needed but not intrusive. Only downside was the mosquitoes so make sure you take a cream or spray as well as the bug machines - especially if you want to sit out on the terrace in the evenings. We would recommend this villa to anyone and would love to visit again.

With its excellent location this villa is an ideal summer getaway. Half way between the medieval villages of Biot and Valbonne. The villa is situated in a quiet wooded residential area, yet only 10 min from the beach, 25 min from the Croisette in Cannes or 30 min from airport and the shops in Nice. With views of the surrounding countryside and coastline.
