Cannes - Grasse - Antibes Chalet Rental Photos and Description

Sleeps 4: double bedroom, sofa bed in lounge, bathroom, deck & swimming pool.

Set in a 5-acre private wooded park this recently modernised chalet is light and airy and enjoys stunning views of the Mediterranean towards Cannes and the Isles D'Hyeres and is perfect for alfresco dining on the south facing terrace. With security gates, private parking below and a large shared swimming pool, the property is a unique jewel in the Cote D'Azur.

Designed as an exclusive resort by an Italian during the late 1980s, the chalet is perched in the hills above Golfe Juan, close to the town of Vallauris (Picasso's pottery period). The marina and beaches of Golfe Juan are nearby, as is the station with frequent connections along the coast.

Activities in the area include: golf, fishing, cycling, hill walking, stunning coastal walks such as St Jean Cap Ferrart and Cap d'Antibes, mountaineering, horse riding, diving, wind surfing, kite surfing and skiing is a 90 minute drive away, Dec - April. Also there are lots of villages, museums and restaurants nearby.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Judy and David Levenson Stayed August 2005

Dear Nicky and Colin We came home (reluctantly) last Sunday after spending the most wonderful week in your apartment. The weather was just perfect, unbroken sunshine throughout. We could see why you made the investment - the view from your terrace at night is enchanting, just as we imagined from the internet photo. When you next travel there, you can read about our exploits in your visitors book. In the meantime thank you for a really great time - we hope to be back soon. Best wishes Judy and David Levenson PS Christine was most helpful and gave us very good service.

Bijou Maison in quiet parc.

  • 5 of 5

The property was clean & comfortable and does have wonderful views. The owner was most efficient, friendly and considerate as was the "greeter" at the property.

It is good for complete relaxation on the south facing deck or use as a base to explore the Cote d'Azur.

Locally Vallauris & Golfe Juan are worth exploring.

A car is essential or be prepared for a demanding descent to and climb back from the excellent coastal rail and bus connections.

All-in-all a really good holiday but not for the faint-hearted.

Would certainly consider renting again and would not hesitate to recommend to friends.

Bijoux and convenient

  • 4 of 5

Ideal for two people, a bit of a squash with more. A quiet area but only a few minutes into the bustle with a car (Cannes, Vallauris etc.). Lovely view from the terrace, take your mosquito spray in the summer.

Owner's Response: We have many families with small children who rent our house and rebook so it's fine for small families and you're right it is so central to explore from - Monaco is 40 minutes away, Nice 20 mins, Antibes 15 mins and the beach a 5 minute drive.

Great location, but a few niggles

  • 4 of 5

My second stay in two years while attending the Cannes Film Festival.

Positives: Perfect location (just 20 mins from the Croisette by car), quiet yet close to village of Vallauris/ supermarket etc, secure complex, friendly neighbours, comfy main bed, clean.

Negatives: Not at all big enough for 4 adults (we were 3 and it felt cramped at times, so probably best for a small/ young family or couple), no wi-fi (essential if you are there during any Cannes work-related event) and lastly, can quickly smell a bit mouldy.

The last point needs to be qualified: a) I think the property is probably under-used and hence does not get aired too often in off-season, b) we had torrential rain while staying there which did not help.

Overall, no major issues. Will certainly consider making it a third year in a row for next year's festival.

Owner's Response: We now have wi-fi and this was our first booking of the season which doesn't excuse the smell of mold which has now gone and the house smells lovely again. We have families consisting of parents and up to two children (including babies as we have a cot) who book and rebook with us and for them it is comfortable and works well. As owners we often go with friends or parents and it is cosy and you need to get on but it is fun. It's personal choice which makes the world interesting!

The whole experience was truly amazing

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this villa in August 2011 for a week and just booked another 10 days in late July.The villa and surroundings met, if not exceeded, expectations.The interiors are simple, functional but above all clean and contemporary, with a complete kitchen not lacking in any type of utensil to prepare lovely meals for you and your family.Just moments away from the town where you can buy anything needed for your stay, this villa is a 20 min drive to Cannes if you feel the need for some activities (day or night) or 30 mins from Antibes for a change of scenery. The gulf of Juan its self (10 mins away) is filled with charming little restaurants and bars next to beach.

All in all this is a perfect way to spend a week in the sun, in one of the busiest european getaways in a charming, relaxing atmosphere.

Great for Cannes Film Festival

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here while attending the 2011 Cannes Film Festival and found it perfect - away from the hustle and bustle of the fest, but close enough to get o the Croisette in about 15-20 minutes (car needed)

Quiet, secluded, secure, friendly neighbours and a well appointed, compact chalet. Ideal for 2-3 adults or a small family. Great pool too.

We spent 2 weeks (it was to short) in Nicky's house this summer and we appreciate the location, the equipment, the quiet of the place.

Cette location est d'un excellent rapport qualité/prix et très bien équipée

The chalet is centrally located (20 minute drive from Nice Airport) and nearby Golf Juan (5 minute drive to chalet) has a train station that runs trains all along the coast. There is a lot to easily explore such as the medieval hilltop villages at Mougins, Eze and St Paul de Vence, museums dedicated to Picasso, Chagall, Matisse, the glass blowers at Biot, the Rothchild Villla on the Cap Ferrart, Monaco and its fascinating palace and famous Grand Prix in June (Monoco is a 1 hour drive max or a 30 minute train journey where you are dropped off at a central point). Nice is a great place to visit as is Cannes and a drive up into the Alps is spectacular. Come at the end of January and see the amazing Historic Monte Carlo Rally over the Alps or the Historic Monaco Grand Prix in May. There is plenty for the kids too such as swimming, zoos, farms and boating lakes. Or just lounge by the pool or at the nearby beach at Golf Juan. There is lots of information about activities at the chalet.

Other Activities: Vallauris is famous for Picasso's pottery and there are numerous visitor attractions.
