Saint-Raphaël Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6), heated pool, garden, terraces

Villa Miramar... Lovely villa with dazzling sea views!

Three bedrooms, garden, heated swimming pool. Lovely villa with dazzling sea views, beach two minutes, sleeps six (three bedrooms, one with fireplace, three bath/shower-rooms), very large living area (living room with fireplace, dining area, library), designer kitchen, Designers Guild interior, terraces, garden, garage.

Overlooking the bay of La Figuerette and the Iles de Lerin in the bay of Cannes, the villa has recently been refurbished to the highest modern standards. With sea views from every room over the Mediterranean, including the hills of SuperCannes, the Italian Alps, and---on a very clear day---Corsica, Villa Miramar is in easy walking distance from the beach (two minutes by car), and only footsteps away from an entrance to the National Park de l'Esterel with fantastic hiking and mountain biking.

The property features a modern interior (Designers Guild). There is a swimming pool 9 by 5 meters, and terraces for sunbathing and outdoor dining, set in a terraced Mediterranean garden.

The total interior area is 250 square meters or 2700 square feet. The terraced garden is 1200 square meters or 13,000 square feet. There is a garage and additional parking area on the driveway. The villa is south-east facing, at an altitude of 110 meters, or 360 feet.

Le Trayas is a village built on the slopes of the Pic Martin, a hill at the foot of the the Esterel mountain range. The local coast line is known as the Cote d'Or, featuring the world famous Corniche d'Or, one of the most beautiful coastal roads in the world. The Cote d'Or has innumerable small sandy bays, separated by dramatic cliffs.

The Villa was chosen for the (British) Channel Four documentary 'A Place in the Sun' as one of the most beautiful properties on the Cote d'Azur.

Cleaning service on Saturday is included in the price. Additional cleaning and maid services are available on request.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a stunning location and what a beautiful home. We stayed there for several weeks last summer, and found the setting amazing for both relaxing and sightseeing. It's hard to walk away from the incredible views from the terrace, but there is so much great stuff to do in the area also. The house is absolutely beautiful (the pictures are 100% real) and extremely well-appointed. Michael has thought of everything and is also a pleasure to deal with.

Gorgeous Villa

  • 5 of 5

No picture could ever do this villa justice. We rented the villa in October 2007, and we were immediately struck by how gorgeous it is! The owner, Michael, met us at the villa with the key, and he was so helpful and friendly - he made us feel right at home.

The interior is beautifully decorated and spotless, and the view outside is overwhelming. When we weren't enjoying the house and its view, we made multiple day trips. The villa is so conveniently located - it took less than an hour to travel everywhere we wanted to go on the Riviera.

I really can't recommend this place enough. We do a fair amount of traveling, and this is truly the nicest place we've ever rented - and we've stayed at a lot of great places.

Fantastic Holiday at Villa Miramar

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday at Villa Miramar. Sasha, who met us at the villa and Michael were very helpful. The villa itself has everything we needed and the views from every room are breathtaking.

A beautiful Place!

  • 5 of 5

Me and my family spent a week here in June!

The house is even better than what you see in the pictures.

Everything was in place and the view is spectacular from every room.

We recommend renting a car if you dont mind walking up and down steep hills.

If you choose this house you wont be dissapointed!

Exquisite comfort and view!

  • 5 of 5

Peaceful serenity by the sea in luxurious accommodations. Great security, even though we were in a very safe area. That just added to the sense of calm. The views from every single room were spectacular. The kitchen had top rated appliances and everything you could ever need to make yourself at home. Each bedroom was a nice size and all the rooms in the house have access to go outside on a balcony. We used this as a base to explore the the Côte d'Azur and could get anywhere we wanted in a short period of time. This would be my first choice to rent again and I highly recommend this house to anyone. I had my 87 year old mother with me and she had no problems getting around. An easy five star review!! If you ever get a chance to stay here, do not hesitate!!

The best stay to explore French Riviera

  • 5 of 5

Very good located to visit all the most important places of interest in French Riviera, not only the cities, but the small villages too. If you prefer to stay and relax at the pool or watch the sunset, you will have this opportunity too. Freshly baked croissant, pain chocolat each morning on the terrace with exquisite view, that it' s to enjoy it.

The only difficult choice - to stay in so beautiful house or to travel around...
