Villa Pokade is located on the hill above Golfe-Juan. The bay of Golfe-Juan, nestled between the Cap of Antibes and the Îles de Lérins in front of Cannes, is well protected from the winds. Thirteen challenging golf courses are within a 15 miles radius (the golf guide of Provence-Cote d'Azur is available at the house) and a wide range of seaside activities is on offer, from walking or lazing about on the sandy beaches, to sailing or visiting old harbours and medieval villages. Within easy driving distance are the larger French Riviera towns of Juan les Pins (2 miles), Antibes (3 miles), Cannes (3 miles) and Monaco (30 miles). Other delightful Cote d’Azur towns and villages, such as Mougins, Biot or Saint Paul de Vence are also less than 1/2 hour away. Golfe-Juan is centrally located on the Riviera and offers easy access to Nice (main international airport), Italy, Monaco, St. Tropez and Provence. The villa is approximately one mile from the sandy beach of Golfe-Juan and its amenities, or one mile from Vallauris famous for its potteries and Picasso museum.
