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.

Although Villa Clara is designed for relaxation, it’s good to know that, if you really need to catch up on work, you can.

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.

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.
