Located on the foothills of Golfe-Juan between Cannes and Antibes, minutes from the center of the village and the beach, la Pokade was built and designed in the finest French Riviera tradition starting with its facade crafted of local sienna stucco and its red tile roof. The beautifully landscaped grounds feature a terraced garden with a variety of tropical flowers and plants including palm, almond and olive trees, cactus, lavender and many other flowering shrubs and plants. Down a flight of stairs below the entrance is a large infinity pool surrounded by a stone terrace as well as other open and covered terraces with ample outdoor lounging and dining furniture. Wherever you decide to relax, you'll enjoy beautiful and peaceful views of the garden. This five bedrooms property boasts all modern comforts and conveniences including ensuite bathrooms, air-conditioned rooms, high-speed Internet access, cable television, DVD player and music system.

About Michel Pommier

Although living in the US since 1979, I always wanted to go back to the Riviera, in general, and to the village of Golfe-Juan, in particular, where I spent endless summers with my family when I was growing up in France. Since 2006, I am enjoying La Pokade 2 to 3 months a year. Between sailing, skiing, hiking and golfing, little time remains to relax but reliving his childhood 'souvenirs' is fun for a happy retiree.

Michel Pommier purchased this villa in 2005

Why Michel Pommier chose Golfe Juan

An opportunity stroke in 2005 when my cousin sent me pictures of a provencal house nested on the hills above Golfe in a peaceful and very private setting but only minutes away from the buzz of Antibes, Juan les Pins and Cannes. Keeping the old walls and the original character of the property, I had the house entirely rebuilt, an infinity pool was added and a new soothing garden was created. Since then friends and family are joining me every year when I am done there. A sure sign that they love the place!

What makes this villa unique

The seclusion that La Pokade offers after a day at the beach, golfing or visiting the surroundings, is a gem. Noise is reduced to hearing the crickets or the birds signing, or the wind in the 'pins parasols'. The property offers total privacy and allows real rest. Kids have a safe environment to play and families can gather on the terraces around the pool or in the summer kitchen for memorable moments.

Beautiful house on a quiet location close to beach

  • 5 of 5
La Pokade is a beautiful house on a quiet location in Golfe Juan. It is close to the town, the harbour and to several beaches. We enjoyed staying there a lot. The house is well kept, charmingly decorated and was clean. The large kitchen is well utilized and the "cuisine d'éte" is a great place to eat, read or just hang out any time of day. The pool is heavenly with a good view on the beautifully kept garden.The neighbourhood is nice and quiet and the house is close to the A8 highway, it takes only 25 minutes to get to Nice Airport. Take the seaside road in the direction on Cannes or Antibes for beautiful views. Or go more in land to the lovely villages of Mougins or Valbonne. The area has a lot to offer.
The whole family enjoyed staying here very much. We can fully recommend the house!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words Gerty. Having the house located only 6.7 km or 4.2 miles away from the A8 highway, indeed allows our guests to be in the Nice airport in 25 mn by car. They can also reach the Gorges of Verdon or the southern Alps in 1h30 mn, Saint-Tropez and many wonderful places in Provence in less than 90 mn, or Marseilles or Aix-en-Provence in 2 hours flat. I am so glad your family fully enjoyed the property and your time on the Riviera. You will always be welcomed at La Pokade. Next time try to spend some time in the region during Spring or Fall and you will discover a totally different, yet very pleasant and warm atmosphere.

A bientôt j'espère!

Magnificent!!!

  • 5 of 5
I spent a week with my partner at La Pokade last September. As an owner of vacation properties myself in the U.S, I was immensely impressed by the overall beauty and comfort of the property, as well as by the attention to detail. The villa is situated on beautifully maintained grounds, which I walked daily, taking in the many different plant species, from fruit trees to lavender outlining the path. I was able to sit and read or listen, quietly, on the benches or chairs perfectly placed throughout the property. I especially enjoyed the pool. As a swimmer, I was easily able to swim laps.

Each bedroom is spacious, with a private bath, desk, and wardrobe. At times, I would just enjoy the privacy of my sun-lit room. Other times, we entertained, using the gourmet kitchen which was not lacking any utensil we might possibly need. The living spaces are beautifully designed and furnished, allowing us not only comfort, but a visual feast.

Finally, the property is well situated to the town, the sea, and the many sites in that part of France. One week was not nearly enough time to explore - so we will definitely be back!

Agréable séjour à La Pokade

  • 5 of 5
Nous avons séjourné 4 semaines à la Pokade en compagnie de nos amis et avons énormément aprécié le charme et confort de La Pokade.
Les prestations de la villa sont à la hauteur de nos attentes, les chambres sont spacieuses, la literie confortable, chaque chambre possède sa propre salle de bain, ce qui est idéal lorsque l'on est nombreux ainsi que la cllimatisation qui est fort apréciable en période estivale. La vaste cuisine est parfaitement équipée et permet de cuisiner entre amis... Le patio à proximité de la cuisine et à quelques pas de la piscine est idéalement situé et devient le lieu de vie privilégié en été.
Nous sommes ravis de notre séjour à La Pokade et espérons y revenir prochainement.

La Pokade

  • 5 of 5
Nous avons choisi cette maison en raison du nombre de chambres et de l'espace cuisine/salle à manger. Nous avons découvert une très belle propriété récemment rénovée avec goût, bien équipée et située dans un endroit calme de Golfe Juan. La maison possède de grandes chambres avec chacune leur salle de bain privée. L'aire de vie autour de la cuisine est très grand et facilite les réunions familiales. Même en hiver, le jardin était très agréable avec son aménagement. En plus de la piscine, il y a une cuisine d'été qui doit être fort sympatique durant l'été.
Nous avons tous très apprécié ce séjour à La Pokade.

Villa La POKADE 5 stars

  • 5 of 5
We spent 15 wonderful days at the villa La Pokade. The villa is a great place to stay with all the comfort needed, the best and state of the art equipment, a californian kitchen, large living room, 4 bedrooms each with its own character, 4 functional bathrooms, a nice terrasse to have meals with a view on the pool and a very nicely designed garden -this garden was a delight for the kids.
To these excellent features, it is worth adding that Internet and TV worked perfectly well.

Our stay was great and if we return to the Côte d'Azur, we certainly return to La Pokade!

Owner's Response: The villa was created with the family comfort in mind. La Pokade is indeed a peaceful setting after a busy day at the beach and/or sightseeing. Just for the record, for extended families, we have an additional independent 5th bedroom with ensuite bathroom behind the summer kitchen.
