PROVENCAL VILLA WITH PRIVATE POOL AND FANTASTIC SEA VIEW OF COTE D'AZUR

Saint Jeannet Villa Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, sleeps 6 adults and 2 children (max 8)

Villa Clara is a beautiful and private Provençal-style, self-contained holiday home with modern amenities located in the charming medieval village of St Jeannet. Villa Clara is only 16km from Nice airport. Only a 2 minute walk to the village to French bakeries, butcher, grocer, restaurants and bars. Italy is an easy 1 hour drive away. You will be greeted by our wonderful French managers Benoit and Corinne who speak fluent English. Enjoy wonderful coastal views, terrace dining with wood fired pizza oven, swim in the private pool. The location gives you all that the busy Cote D'Azur has to offer combined with the get away from it all retreat that Provence is famous for. A car may not be necessary as there is a 30 minute bus service to train stations and the famous CAP 3000 shopping complex. The local taxi service can pick you up from the airport and take you to the house for approx 50 euros. We have furnished the villa with everything you have at home to make it a true home.

It is ideal for a family holiday, or as place to be enjoyed with friends. The villa and stand-alone studio can comfortably accommodate a group of eight people. You can simply relax at Villa Clara and explore Provence and the Côte d’Azur. Italy too is within easy reach – the Italian border is only a one-hour drive away. Travel along the coast to explore the bustle of Cannes, historic Antibes or take a short trip along the Riviera to Monaco. If you wish to travel further, Nice Airport is just 16 Kilometres away.

The large lounge is beautifully decorated in Provençale style and features exposed oak beams. Comfortable sofas, chairs and great ambiance create the perfect place to relax in front of the large fireplace. For entertainment there is a 47 ' flat screen television which receives English, Italian, French and German cable channels. There is also a DVD recorder/Video recorder, along with plenty of books and family games. If you love to cook, you’ll love Villa Clara’s kitchen. It has everything you need. Along with all the utensils, there are gas hobs and an electric oven, a microwave oven, large refrigerator/freezer, espresso machine, toaster, electric jug/kettle and a dishwasher. In the centre is an eight-seat Provençale table. The kitchen is supplied with crockery, glasses and cups (along with plenty of wineglasses, of course) for eight people. Indoor and outdoor table linen is also provided.

Although Villa Clara is designed for relaxation, it’s good to know that, if you really need to catch up on work, you can. A laptop, printer, scanner and photocopier are available, as well as wireless high speed unlimited Internet if you travel with a laptop. Villa Clara is equipped with a washing machine and a drier. Laundry tablets, for one wash a day, are provided. The laundry also has lots of storage space – ideal for storing your suitcases. Villa Clara has a delightful studio on its grounds. This is a self contained building situated just ten meters from the main Villa. Inside is a kitchenette with two electric cooking hobs, an electric jug/kettle and a fridge. The cottage has its own separate shower and toilet too, along with a small television set. If no-one in your party is using the cottage, why not simply enjoy it as a fantastic summer house – a great place to take it easy on those long, hot Mediterranean summer days.

About Anna Pocock

Bryan and I are Chartered Accountants in New Zealand. We have run our own practice called Pocock Hudson Limited for 21 years.

I use my maiden name Anna Stewart for my professional life.

We have two sons who are both attending Otago University.

Our family holidays have always been very important to us which is why we own the properties that we do.

Anna Pocock purchased this villa in 2005

Why Anna Pocock chose Saint Jeannet

Our dream started 20 years ago, when we would travel to The South of France for September. We would rent an apartment in Villefranche Sur Mer, and we commented that we could offer so much more (a home away from home) . So in 2004 we started in earnest looking for the ideal French home away from home. We fell in love with Villa Clara after looking at hundreds of properties over a 2 year period (yes we travelled more than just once a year - actually up to 4 trips a year!) In December 2005 our dream became a reality, and we became the proud owners of Villa Clara. 2007 saw us add our beautiful apartment Chez Claude in Paris. The perfect mix of busy city and relaxing countryside holidays.

And now the final place a beautiful 7 bedroom villa on Highlands Reserve Golf and Country Club in Orlando Florida. Bryan and I can break our long journey from New Zealand to France by stopping off for some warmth, some park fun and great golf !

What makes this villa unique

Villa Clara is very special because of the unique village of St Jeannet. We are supported by the most amazing neighbours and locals who LOVE welcoming our guests.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Pat and I had an absolutely wonderful, relaxing week in your beautiful St Jeannet home. The week went by so fast it seemed like we were just beginning to settle in when it was time to start packing for our return to Chicago Illinois.

You are to be applauded for your generosity and for your support of the Chicago Bear Gala and Cancer research. But for your donation, Pat and I would never have been able to know how spectacular the Villa Clara truly is. I will never forget how wonderful you were in accommodating our schedule and switching the Villa Clara instead of Chez Claude Apartment. Finally thank you for having Benoit and Corinne ensure that our every need here was met.

A dream villa tucked away in a charming village!

  • 4 of 5
Villa Clara has all the modern amenities you need with all the charm of a historic property to create a wonderful vacation experience. We spent every morning out on the terrace enjoying fresh baked pastries from one of the two bakeries in town and coffee brewed fresh with the luxury coffee maker at the villa. There was no rush to get out and explore when you have views of the Mediterranean like that! But we did get out and enjoy the beaches and nearby perched villages. We even enjoyed our days spent right in St. Jeannet, conversing with the butcher, grocer, baker, and restaurant employees. Everyone was so friendly and indulged me in my efforts to better my french. A special night was enjoyed at the restaurant "La Table des Baous."

Charming Rustic Luxury with Extraordinary View

  • 5 of 5
This lovely villa was everything we hoped for and more. The town of Saint Jeannet is charming and truly a French Provincial experience. We did not want for anything at the Villa. The care takers were marvelous and welcoming and were willing to accommodate our every need. Though we never met the owners face to face they made it clear that our satisfaction at the villa was their number one priority. They really cared, were very communicative and we feel that we have made new "Kiwi" friends. The grounds are beautiful , the kitchen really well equipped and fun to cook in for guests and family. Wifi, television, dishwasher, laundry facilities all in excellent condition. The house is very comfortable but still manages to charm and maintains a rustic quality that my husband and young adult children really appreciated. The location is great for day excursions all over the Cote d'Azure and then we tucked into the villa for the evening and enjoyed feasting on local produce in this magnificent setting with spectacular view. Thank you to the Villa Clara team for providing us with such a special experience and cherished memories!

Always Sunny

  • 5 of 5
My family of five ( 3 kids: 16, almost 14 and 12) arrived at Villa Clara after a wonderful week at the Olympics. We knew we wanted some relaxing days after the fun and excitement of London. We were greated by Corrine who showed us everything one needed in the house. But the open doors from the kitchen looking out toward Nice and the sea was a once-in-a-lifetime view. The first floor had a wonderful TV and videos for the evening since we were still interested in the closing ceremonies. The master bed and bath were great and downstairs there were 2 rooms and 4 beds for the kids. The outside cottage was a plus but really not used but it had everything The kitchen is fully equipped. The town of St Jeanette is sleepy but there are great places to eat and great markets. We climbed the local mountain and saw a goat and sheep herder. Wonderful views and really not a hard climb. Everthing was great and the caretakers, Corrine and Benoit were eager to please and show. One of the local towns farmers had given us a welcome basket with all fresh produce of the season plus Corrine's jam and tomato sauce. I just used today since I flew home with it and it was delicious. Just a wonderful place and so much sun! The kids loved the pool and my husband got to read a book by the pool which seems not too much of an accomplishment but his life is filed with papers so he really got to relax. A treasure for sure. And lastly my 14 year-old daughter water skied in Antibes--for her birthday, pretty amazing.
