About Briane and Marian Loram
We are an Australian family who have enjoyed, for some years, wonderful holidays with family and friends as tenants at Villa Gezanne.
Why Briane and Marian Loram chose Valbonne
Gezanne came up for sale and we were fortunate to become the new owners. Much to our delight, the previous owners - Marian and her daughter Briane, who had welcomed us so warmly to the property for many years, agreed to continue to greet guests to Gezanne and look after the property. Their local knowledge, kindness and enthusiasm has been wonderful for us and other guests over the years. Marian and Briane live on site in a separate part of the property in the guardian’s flat. We were drawn to Gezanne because of the house's character, spacious garden, sizeable pool, pleasant views and its great location - in a quiet secluded area but just a not far from the beach, the village of Biot and Antibes. Gezanne is a great base to explore the Riviera and the Alpes Maritimes and each year we find more and more interesting places to see and things to do.”

We had a lovely time staying for a week at the villa. It was very easy to arrange, and our hosts were very kind, welcoming and helpful. We would love to visit again.
Thank you Ian , I am so glad your holiday went well for you and your family . We too hope you can come again
Great location, fabulous home
Best overseas holiday ever
Lovely spacious welcoming villa
Thank you Brianne and Marian for your warm welcome and attentiveness throughout our stay in the villa. The villa was spacious having four large double bedrooms and another separate den area with en suite and sleeping three . Great for kids.
I loved having the bedrooms opening onto the pool area. The pool was great and HEATED which was a luxury for us. The kitchen was spacious and had everything we needed for preparing meals etc. We ate mostly on the large terrace with magnificent views over the Côte d'Azur..
The gardens were beautifully kept and it was lovely to be able to pick a lemon off one of your many trees.
The area was lovely. I loved driving around the windy twisty roads up to the villa from the coast. We particularly liked the local village of Valbonne. The market was great.
Most days we explored the area, so many different medieval villages to see and of course the coast. Spent a lovely lunch and afternoon in Cap D'Antibe. The water was beautiful.
Once again thank you for such a lovely stay. Would recommend to all.
We had a cracking holiday -a return to the villa.
The villa caters for our families requirements for a great holiday, it provides the quiet seclusion on the residential hillside looking down onto the Med, and comes with all the things you need to relax.
However, it is close enough to the 'thrum' of the Antibes, Nice & Cannes for entertainment.
Marion and Briane are next door and available for help and information as required, which is lovely and are never intrusive.
Excellent villa for a family holiday!
We returned to villa Gezanne for the second year running as we loved it so much last year!
It is spacious villa -well equipped and furnished - set in beautiful surroundings.
The bedrooms and living areas are well presented and the swimming pool is great!
The owners live on site and are extremely welcoming-not at all intrusive but available for advice on the local area.
The location is good for visiting various areas-Cannes, Nice, Monaco etc and the villages and towns nearby.
I would definitely recommend this villa for a perfectly relaxed holiday.
We were most certainly return!
A little bit of heaven
We have just returned from three glorious weeks at Villa Gezanne. The house is so family friendly and in such a stunning position . The gardens are delightful and the pool area is perfect for sunbathing ( loads of comfy loungers )- our family appreciated the bedrooms that opened directly onto the pool area and would often take advantage of slipping inside for a lie down and quite read ! The pool itself is lovely and is constantly being cleaned and monitored - it provided hours and hours of fun for the young ones !! We were quite large family group but the Villa afforded us all the space and comfort we could want -plenty of room to chill out!
Sitting on the terrace in the evening looking out over the beautifully lit gardens to the moonlit sea and lights from the coast will provide memories to warm dark winter nights at home !
Briane who looks after the property was superb both through the booking process , answering preholiday queries and giving us such a warm welcome . She was there when we needed her but otherwise was totally unobtrusive .
We have stayed in the Valbonne area each summer for the past 10 years and many of the group felt we couldn't match our previous happy experiences- but I have to say that- to a man we all fell under the spell of Villa Gezanne. We love the friendly local shops and easy access to both Biot and Valbonne .
We really hope to return next year
E&G. Northern Ireland
