Overview

Villefranche-sur-Mer Villa Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 5.0 Bathrooms, 8 Sleeps

Villa Ulysse is neighbor to the worlds most expensive villa "La Lopolda, in Villefranche-sur-Mer. Less than ten villas around this palace of King Leopold II, founder of Cap-Ferrat, are privileged to this acclaimed south-facing location and postcard views over Cap Ferrat and Mediterraneans most visited bays of Villefranche and Beaulieu. Just up the road, crowds of tourists stop to take photos, with the view as backdrop, a 100-year-old tradition and legendary souvenir of The French Riviera. Enjoy this very private villa environment, without any vis-a vis throughout

Originally a tall, 1920s villa, Ulysse has been radically reconstructed providing over 460 squared meters of indoor spaces for ultimate comfort and technology which enhance the day-to-day living experience while maintaining its old charm by using noble materials throughout. All its wood framed windows have been carefully placed to create a unique private postcard.

The family room is a large, casual space consisting of a gym space with sauna, a fully equipped gourmet kitchen, a professional bar with all its accessories and a dining arrangement to create a great party atmosphere. Large sliding bay windows extend the space onto the secluded, manicured garden for a plunge in the heated pool, al- fresco dining, entertaining, resting and much more. Garden, Pool, Fire-pit, gaming, BBQ, Kitchen Gym and Sauna connect and interact to provide a fully integrated villa experience.

Two levels up, in the formal yet cozy living area, guests will find another professional Italian circular bar and light cooking facilities, collectors art, a steel CVO fireplace, mood lighting, a home cinema and a quality music system. Three large bay windows give to a 500 sq. terrace and stunning views. Delight in the attention to detail: the art deco handrails height and curvature have been engineered to align with the 210-degree horizon.

Unlike most rental properties in France, this villa comes with its permanent staff, including a housekeeper and external helpers, to ensure guests feel relaxed and at home.

Stunning views over Villefranche and cap ferat.

  • 4 of 5

Ulysee was a wonderful place to stop and spend a week after traveling through Europe for six weeks. We were welcomed by Nicholas and shown the running of the villa and then a quick tour of the village and places to buy groceries, and the markets and cafés, marina etc. Nicholas gave us a good overview of the area which was much appreciated.

The house accommodated 5 of us well although I was hoping that the twin room could be turned into a double to make it feel more luxurious. Fatima did her best to understand us and was great to have around to clean up after us and keep the villa clean and tidy. She was always happy to oblige. It was a restful holiday.

FANTASTIC View

Well maintained

Has a lift - this helped since climbing stairs is not easy for my parents who were with us

The house has a swing ..... my father loves swings

Everything was not exactly as described on the website , but i have no reason for complaint

Ulysse - A fantastic villa overlooking the French Riviera

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely lovely stay at Ulysee. The pre-planning was a breeze, and Emma and Kirsten were incredibly helpful with all of our questions and requests. They took on any challenge with a smile, and most importantly, we never felt like our requests were a bother or a burden. On arriving at the villa, we were in awe of the stunning location and view, which the pictures cannot adequately describe. The villa itself was lovely, and easily accommodated our large group. It really felt like home. We had a fantastic vacation, and can't say enough good things about UIysse and Luxury Retreats!
