Local area and position: Cannes was developed by the wealthy Victorians and Edwardians who came here to enjoy the beautiful year round climate, and famous painters came to this region to live and make use of the unique light that exists here.
It has now become world famous because of the annual Cannes Film Festival which draws in celebrities from all over the globe. For these reasons, Cannes has world class shopping, containing all the top name brands as well as all amenities situated locally.
Cannes is perfectly positioned to enjoy the pleasures of the azure Mediterranean Sea to the South and the mountains of the Esteral and the Alpes Maritimes to the North. It is centrally positioned to enable easy motorway or train access to Nice, Monaco and Italy to the East and St. Tropez and the more rural Var to the West.
All around are beautiful Provençal villages.
The Villa: Villa Jolie is in a peaceful location with mature gardens surrounding it.
The grounds contain twelve olive trees, a lemon tree, numerous cacti and a very old pine tree which provides shade to parts of the garden. There is stone work in the garden with two types of bougainvillea (red and purple) climbing it. Another stone wall, next to the pool, is covered with jasmine.
The pool is splendid, varying in depth between 0.9 and 2.5 metres and you can have an uninterrupted swim for 17 metres. The pool is surrounded by terracing and access to the pool house with fully equipped kitchen and bathroom with WC.
Feedback: I have many repeat bookings and most guests describe the villa as beautiful, even stunning.
