About Austin Hutchison
British / Danish couple with 2 boys. Based in Denmark where we run 4 companies we own. Travel frequently and have decided to rent our retreat out this summer as we are travelling RTW for 2 months. I grew up in Dubai, went to University in the UK where I met my wife and been happily married the last 25 years.
Austin Hutchison purchased this Villa in 2010
Why Austin Hutchison chose Fréjus
Quite simply it was the view - the moment we walked in it was an instant decision to buy it. We have very often been to the cote d'azur and paid for renting properties and I felt it was time to purchase one instead. It is our intention to wind up the business's in DK in the next few year, sell up and spend more time in that part of the world. Great weather, great restaurants and fantastic golf courses - stunning views, excellent medical facilities in France, and access to the rest of the world from Nice Airport 30 minutes drive away.
What makes this Villa unique
The stunning views from most of the southern face of the property. The outdoor lounge we have on the main floor, the entry. The fact that the house was located in a closed CCTV monitored gated community was a big plus in terms of security. The pool area, where we totally renovated last year, installed a fully functional and large out door kitchen with Gas Barbecue and hot plate. We also extended the terrace in teak an additional 70 m².

Hidden gem, stunning great house and area
Wonderful place, very beautiful with a Great Lake close by and aproachable host with time spent checking in. Just far enough away but still easily accessible from the busier coast line, local fabulous restaurants, walking and vineyards. The house, garden and pool itself quite magical. We would rebook.
Eyrie in the hills
Just back from two glorious weeks at this stunning house about 15-20 minutes from Mandelieu and Theoule sur mer. The house is beautiful - equipped with everything you could need and beautifully furnished. The pool area, the day bed, the outdoor terraces all face what is truly the most stupendous view imaginable - a hazy shimmer first thing in the morning and bathed in pink light in the evening, it was hard to drag yourself away to explore the surrounding region. And what a region! From the heavenly beach at L'Aiguille in Theoule to cocktails in Cannes; Michelin-starred meals in Mougins; quintessential Provencal towns such as Valbonne in the hinterland behind; an embarrassment of art (see Fondation Maeght and the Chapelle Sainte Rosaline); walks in the Esterel; visits to wineries, there is literally something for everyone and every interest can be fulfilled within a 30-40 minute radius of the house. And then you have to leave time for floating in the pool, reading on the day bed or just looking at the view. We have stayed in houses the length and breadth of Provence over a period of about 15 years but this location (and this view) are unsurpassed. Highly recommended.
Wonderful property with amazing views!
We spent a week at Austin's house and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It was a perfect base to explore the French Riviera.
The house has all the modern facilities you would expect from a luxury holiday home. It is set on 3 levels and each of our family had their own favourite place to find peace and quiet, though it was a bit of a rush to get to the "Day Bed" first. We spent a lot of our time on the deck and also on the balcony. The pool allowed us to cool off during the heat of the day and then relax in the peace and quiet of the hills.
Every room and every seat is built around the magnificent view over Cannes and you can't help but be in awe every time you look.
This is one of those places that you will never forget!
My husband and I were lucky enough to have this wonderful home to ourselves for the week. From the moment we arrived and escaped the crowds we were able to just sit back, enjoy the view and truly feel on holiday.
The house is well equipped with TV, Sky etc but the most important thing it offers it the most wonderful views over the bay of Cannes and absolute tranquility, it was a true sanctuary away from the August crowds.
The outside eating and relaxing areas and a leisurely dip in the pool were perfect and having stocked up at the easy to reach supermarket we were able to cook and relax over lazy dinners outdoors. Assuming you have a car there’s plenty to see and do within 30 minutes drive should you feel the need to tear yourselves away from the view.
We have rented several places in the last few years and Austin was great to deal with. Everything was exactly as described and he was always available for questions as was the lovely welcoming Isabelle.
What an amazing place!
You know how sometimes, you see the brochure pictures, but are then let down when you arrive, well the opposite happens here. Whilst the house photos are accurate, it's position just does not translate. By day the bay is stunning, and by night it is transformed into a dancing show of lights.
We were a family of four with two teenage children and we all enjoyed the houses ample facilities. Our welcome from the lovely Isabelle was first class, as was the chilled bottle of rose provided by the owner.
We have been renting houses for nearly 20 years, and this was the best so far.
I defy you not to have the best time here.
Many Thanks Stephanie & Family,
Lovely Review and I am delighted you enjoyed yourselves.
All the best / Austin & Pia
Stunning house, can't wait to go back!
Austin the owner was so helpful from start to finish, and in between when we had yet more questions! Always a prompt reply and extremely useful information provided before the holiday. The house is simply stunning and the views are better than the pictures! cannot fault the house, the amenities and we would love to return next year. You need a car for sure, and there is a supermarket nearby and Cannes is only a 25 minute drive along the scenic coastal road. If I could give it 6 stars I would, absolutely loved our time here. thanks Austin!
