About Baudoin Saint Gal de Pons

We hold both French and U.S. citizenship.

My wife is Japanese American.

I was born in Chablis/Burgundy and I have lived in Los Angeles for the last 41 years where I ran my own Food Import Company.

We have lived in Valbonne since 2008 with our younger daughter now 17 years old.

I am an Agricultural engineer.

I have served in the French Peace Corp in Tunisia.

I have worked for The Dow Chemical Company, in Paris before my transfer to the U.S

I have 4 children: Twin sons are officers in the U.S. ARMY with a sister married , living in Santa Barbara, California.

We still own a home in North Hollywood, California.

Why Baudoin Saint Gal de Pons chose Valbonne

We chose to retire in Valbonne because of my my parents, their beautiful villa, a climate close to what we have known in California, and a great international life style. Our daughter attends the International School of Valbonne-Sophia Antipolis (CIV).

Her High School combines French and English curriculum. We enjoy skiing and hiking; we have it all, only a few kilometers from Valbonne.

What makes this villa unique

The proximity of Valbonne village only. 10 minutes away by foot. The social services available. The Bus stop, minutes away, leading to Cannes and Nice and more.

The City Public Tennis court a few minutes walk away.

The joy of living on the wonderful family grounds where my children have spent their best summer vacations ever.

Fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a 2 week stay at the villa. We were 2 families - a party of 6, 4 adults and 2 16 year olds. Everything was excellent from the booking to the end of the holiday. Location is perfect close to the beautiful medieval village of Valbonne. We walked into the village to eat most nights which is 10/15 minutes and a pleasant walk but is uphill coming back and the hill up to the house is quite steep!The villa is on a private road at the top of a hill and whilst close to the main road is very peaceful set in large private grounds with a great BBQ area. The villa is very large and comfortable. It is decorated in a really nice but traditional way so if you are expecting ultra modern you may be disappointed. That said it has all you will need and we found it extremely comfortable. The villa was extremely clean and well appointed. Bau and Sandy were great. They greeted us and showed us round but we're not intrusive at all. They gave us a number of useful tips in terms of places to visit, restaurants to eat at etc. The location is a great base for exploring the French Riviera. We went on the train to Monaco from Antibes and got to St Tropez, Cannes, Vence and Antibes which are all close by. A hire car is useful but you can get around without one. All in all a great holiday and would love to return.

A nice place to stay

  • 5 of 5

La Ponsiade has a very good location, quiet and central at the same time, it is just a short walk to the bakery in Valbonne for fresh bread for breakfast.The grassed pool area is lovely for the children as well for their parents - and grand parents!The house,though it is not new, is charming and well functioning. If you should like to take a trip to the beaches of Juan les Pins, it is just a short drive away. Bau is a kind an helpful landlord.

A Real Find

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a wonderful week with at "La Provencale" with our three children and my parents. The villa is beautifully laid-out internally and the grassed area around the pool was a real bonus for the children. The pool is surrounded by a (removable) fence and was perfect for teaching our three children to swim. The site of the house is elevated, allowing a gentle breeze to cool the south-facing patio and garden. We ate outside on the terrace and barbequed in the evenings. The owner (Bau) was very helpful with local tips, including the off-road walk into Valbonne and its wonderful Friday market. My parents were able to take a bus at the bottom of the hill to travel to Cannes. All in all, a fabulous house in a great location. The only minor suggestion for improvement: some English-language (used) paperbacks for relaxing travelers to read!

Villa in Valbonne

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely stay in this beautiful villa. The only reason we have not given 5 stars is that the bathrooms did not each have a wc so there were only 2 in the property between up to 8 guests. The villa is in a very good location, 10 min walk to Valbonne which is very pretty with plenty of restaurants and shops. while we were there there was a fete in the village with live music in the square and a big circus, this provided additional entertainment. Valbonne is a great place to explore other places from, although we did not have a car as we were only there for a week we went to Cannes on the bus (30mins) and from there could have got to many other places. With a car you would be able to get to many beautiful places but for a week it is quite possible to manage without one.

Memorable summerholiday

  • 5 of 5

We were 2 adults and 3 teenagers spending 14 days in beautiful Valbonne.

We enjoyed evrery single day of our stay in "La Ponsiade"

In particular our barbecue dinners on the terrace, and watching the sunset fron the upper bedroom terrace.

The house has an excellent location, in a quiet location, just a short walking distance to the Valbonne city centre, and we also enjoyed a nice provencale meal in the restaurant just accross the road.

Even though we had a rental car, Valbonne is easy accessible by public transportation (note, that we were visiting Valbonne prior to the french school holiday, so the public transportation offer may be reduced during the french holidays)

We will gladly return to this charming place!
