West Nice Villa Rental Photos and Description

5 bedroom villa in gated domain only a few minutes' drive to the town and beach

This fully equipped 270m2 Provençal villa is the ideal hideaway for a laid-back French Riviera experience.

This villa has it all, and if you want to take it easy, there's nothing simpler. Just laze by the swimming pool, prepare your meals in the outdoor kitchen, enjoy the Japanese-style jacuzzi bath, venture down into the fully sound-proofed HD home cinema with an amazing film library, or just take in the view which unfolds before you as you sit out on the terrace. The villa is made up of 3 levels and with five bedrooms has sleeping capacity for up to 8-10 people. High speed Internet access is available by wi-fi or from the various Ethernet outlets in the villa.

Just outside the gated community is a large recreational park with panoramic views over Nice and the Mediterranean.

Within a 30 minutes drive you find amongst other famous places Monaco and Cannes, beautiful towns like Antibes and Grasse, and numerous small typically French villages like St. Paul de Vence and Eze. The area has been called home by quite a few of the world artists of the last century. You'll find museum dedicated to Chagall, Renoir, Picasso, Matisse, and many others who lived here.

LUXURY WEEK IN PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
We were a party of 5 abdults and 2 kids (2-year old twins) celebrating my mothers birthday at this lovely villa with the most amazing view. The villa was large and cozy and very well equipped regarding everything from kitchen to "movie theather" at the basement. Everything was clean and fresh and it felt very safe to get there even for the first time because of the excellent and very detailed descriptions we got from the owner. It felt from the beginning that at this place EVERYTHING has been thought of.
The location is excellent, because you have your own privacy, but still it´s not far from the action in the city. We mainly cooked delicious dinners at the house and it was convenient to do grocery shopping at the large Carrefour market that you reach in approx 10 minutes by car. On my mothers birthday we enjoyed a gourmet French dinner at the house made by the chef (Emmanuel Sofonea) recommended by the owner. It was delicious!
The pictures at this site are good, but the place is even more breathtaking in reality. We can highly recommend it to anyone!

PARADISE IN NICE

  • 5 of 5
We have spent a wonderful week in this beautiful villa perched at the top of one of Nice's hill, overlooking the city and its beautiful bay: we enjoyed the peace of the garden, the jaccuzi and the home cinema, while our children enjoyed the swimming pool and the flowery and large garden. For diner we were spoilt for choice between the city's restaurants or doing diner parties making full use of the bright kitchen overlooking the sea and trying the colourful markets in the old town. The house is large and very comfortable, turned toward the sea and decorated in an elegant way reflecting the owners' multicultural experiences and tastes. The location of the villa is perfect: perched at the top of a hill, it allows access to beautiful public gardens that serpent down to the sea and the City for those who enjoy walking. It is a wonderful address and we can't wait for our next stay!

AMAZING VIEWS, WELL-EQUIPPED, GREAT AMENITIES.

  • 5 of 5
We loved our stay at the villa. It was very comfortable, and had everything needed to relax, watch a movie and prepare a meal. We truly enjoyed our down time when not touring the Cote d'Azur and Provence! The pool and hot tub are totally private, and the entire outdoor space is wonderful. The location is very central, and is in a nice area of Nice, behind two security gates. The view is incredible from nearly every room. The villa is a home, with lovely art work and personal touches throughout. The Hochers were wonderful people to deal with. They were very responsive to all of my questions, made dinner reservations for us, recommended a French chef to prepare dinner at the house, and gave us a lot of advice about the area. They even had a special gift & card waiting for us to congratulate us on our 20th anniversary! Their house manager, Ronny was very helpful and welcoming. Ronny had my detailed list of groceries waiting for us at the house, and was available to us during our stay when questions came up about the stereo, etc.. The security deposit is large, but it is easy to see why this is necessary when considering the level of high quality systems like the media room, pool & hot tub. Our deposit was returned promptly, and was back in my account before we got home! I would highly recommend this villa to anyone, and would return without hesitation. Merci beaucoup Patrick & Akiko for sharing your incredible home and helping us to make our trip a huge success!

BEAUTIFUL VIEWS, GREAT HOSTS

  • 5 of 5
The view is truly spectacular, and we were very comfortable in it. What impressed me the most is the level of the owners hospitality hospitality. It is the best"house manual" I have ever seen (and I have seen quite a few), the wine, the chocolates, the coffee, everything they prepared for us made us feel truly welcome!
There are many amenities in the house, a hot tub, table tennis, and a cinema. we did enjoy very much the cinema. We were fortunate to have with us our young grandchildren, so we were not able to go out at night. And the cinema was truly fabulous. We loved their taste in movies (AND in books, which we also enjoyed very much).
The only minus is that it a is a bit difficult to get to it, with a winding narrow way, but I guess that is the price you have to pay to have such a great view. Because of that I give it a 4plus, instead of a 5, but it was not available.

Once again, thank you very much for your wonderful hospitality, we hope to visit you again in the future.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your comment -- we truly appreciated it and it is the best reward we can expect for our effort.
As for the road, I am sorry you found it difficult with your mini-bus (or van). It is a pretty standard one for the hills in France (or Europe for that matter), and a regular size bus does use it every day without particular trouble. This being said, the city has just renewed the pavement and it is now really better than it was.

A VERY WELL EQUIPPED HOUSE WITH STUNNING VIEWS FAC

  • 4 of 5
Initial communication with the owners was prompt, simple and helpful at all times. The welcoming arrangements were excellent and the checking out was no problem. The House is spacious with every facility you could possibly require. There were lots of everyday items readily available such as basic cooking essentials (spices, condiments etc) and washing facilities (not always expected). The decor is mostly traditional rather than modern, except for the outside facilites which were VERY up to date and in excellent condition. The views from most every part of the house are stunning, and a coolish breeze is always evident in the otherwise very hot climate. The air conditioning units in the upper bedrooms are very efficient. The property was clean and spacious and as described in the advertising. The owner and manager both provided excellent service before and during tour stay We had an excellent family holiday at this House and would love to go back again in the future, and we would therefore recommend the House to any prospective hirers.
