For rent or for sale. Located on the foothills of Golfe-Juan between Cannes and Antibes, minutes from the center of the village and the beach, Villa 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.

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 4 to 5 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 down 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, hiking or visiting the surroundings, is a gem. Noise is reduced to hearing the crickets or the birds singing, 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.

A nice quiet Villa

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous villa. We were a group of friends together from around the world, some with children and some without. The layout was perfect with a beautiful private garden and a large pool. Worth getting up early to watch the sun rise over the ocean bay as many times as possible! We stayed for two weeks and it was a true home from home. Can't wait to go back.

Superbe séjour dans un cadre reposant

  • 5 of 5

Très belle maison de caractère, typique de la cote d'azur où il fait bon vivre que ce soit dans la journée avec piscine et jardin ou sous le préau pour les apéritifs et repas du soir. Il y a tout le confort moderne dans cette maison de charme. Elle est assez proche de la cote pour le coté festif du séjour mais en reste suffisamment loin pour profiter de son calme reposant. On s'y sent bien. La fin du printemps est une période idéale pour profiter de la végétation en pleine explosion sans trop grosse chaleur. Accès facile avec l'autoroute et l'aéroport très proches. A refaire.

Easily, one of the most glorious vacations ever!

  • 5 of 5

This house was a highlight of our trip to France. We had a wonderful stay for a week and would be delighted to return. Sitting by the large pool with the birds singing above was so relaxing, so inspiring. It was a perfect location to use as a base to visit this wonderful part of France. There is so much to see in the Riviera, but we also wanted to make certain that we spent time enjoying the house and pool. We did some wonderful sightseeing including Cannes, Antibes, Nice, Monaco, Saint Paul de Vence, Grasse and Gourdon. We spent a full day at the beach in Juan Les Pins. But we really enjoyed our time at the house, particularly playing boules (the French petanque) and ping pong as a family. The owners made us feel very comfortable and gave us a lot of good recommendations. Everything in the house was top notch, including

the gourmet kitchen and the large bedrooms, which made our trip even more

enjoyable. We highly recommend this house for your French Riviera vacation!

Lovely spacious holiday home on the French Riviera

  • 5 of 5

« Villa La Pokade » is a delightful, spacious holiday home on the French Riviera. It is situated on the hills above the seaside village of Golfe-Juan at a very short distance from Cannes and Antibes and the beach. We have yet rented several houses on the French Riviera and this was easily the nicest. We had a family reunion there with nine people, coming from different continents. We landed in Nice just 15 miles away. We were delighted with the clean, modern, spacious living and sleeping accommodations of the house, its private bathrooms, its super well-equipped kitchen inside the house, the large outdoor summer kitchen where we spent our evenings and the large garden with its infinity pool. It was also convenient to have parking for up to eight cars. The owner provided excellent customer service. The way the house is laid out gave us more than enough room and we never felt in each other’s way. We often had different activities going on simultaneously. The second floor bedrooms provide a quiet reading refuge. The high-speed Internet with wifi throughout the house enabled those who were on a working holiday to operate a full work schedule. In the main living room others could watch international sporting events on the cable TV with major US channels. Outside, the very private terraces, the summer kitchen, the sun bathing areas or the lower Mediterranean garden and the pool by the side for a refreshing dip offered something for everyone. The kitchen is exceptionally spacious well equipped so that a number of cooks can operate simultaneously. Each generously sized bedroom has its own private bathroom. The teenagers had regular table tennis tournaments by the pool, others played pétanque in the shade of plain trees. Just a short walk from the house (or a quick car ride), we found four well-kept tennis courts at the Courcettes, which we were almost always available. For our excursions we loved the open markets in Cannes and Antibes, the beach which is only one mile away, the extraordinary choice of museums between Cannes and Monaco and the beautiful villages of the backcountry. Also the Gorges du Loup, the Parc of Mercantour and St Tropez were all within reach of the house. All in all, Villa La Pokade is a beautiful Provençal house that has been modernized and furnished to a superb standard to comfortably meet the needs of 9-10 people. We would highly recommend it to anyone as the ideal holiday home on the French Riviera.

Superbe maison provençale

  • 5 of 5

Superbe maison provençale où tout est fait pour se sentir "comme à la maison". Les chambres "en suite" sont spacieuses, impeccables et décorées avec goût. La cuisine à l'américaine est superbe et l'immense salon/salle à manger est très convivial.

Les belles terrasses luxueusement aménagées et la piscine vous invitent au repos dans le calme d'un jardin qui sent bon la Provence. Lieu idéal pour des vacances en famille ! Le temps y passe trop vite ! Maison très agréable à recommander vivement!
