About the property

4 Bedrooms, 5.0 Bathrooms, 8 Sleeps

Ulysse villa is located in an exclusive area of the South of France, Villefranche-sur-Mer. Less than ten villas around the palace of King Leopold II are privileged to this acclaimed south-facing location and views over Cap Ferrat and the Mediterraneans most visited bays of Villefranche and Beaulieu. Just up the road, crowds of tourists stop to take photos, with the view as backdrop, a 100-year-old tradition and legendary souvenir of the French Riviera. Enjoy this very private villa, and have your vacation, your way with Luxury Retreats.

Large sliding bay windows open to the secluded, manicured garden for a plunge in the heated swimming pool. Two levels up, in the formal yet cozy living area, guests will find a professional Italian circular bar and light cooking facilities, collectors art, a steel CVO fireplace, mood lighting, a home cinema and a quality music system. Three large bay windows open to a terrace with stunning views. Delight in the attention to detail: the art deco handrails height and curvature have been engineered to align with the horizon. This villa also comes with full staff, including housekeeper, to ensure guests feel relaxed.

Ulysse provides over four thousand square feet of indoor spaces with ultimate comfort and technology to enhance the day-to-day living experience. It yet maintains its old charm by using noble materials throughout. All its wood-framed windows have been carefully placed to create a unique private postcard. The family room is a large, casual space consisting of a fully equipped gourmet kitchen, a professional bar and a dining arrangement for a great party atmosphere.

A total of four bedrooms accommodate up to eight guests at Ulysse villa. Each bedroom comes with an en-suite bathroom and unique amenities. Enjoy the penthouse suite with king bed, en-suite bathroom with double jet stream shower and hammam cabin with Jacuzzi, walk-in closet, mini bar, mood lighting and private verandah.

With its unusual mix of city grit, old world opulence and year-round sunshine, Nices appeal is universal. The clearest-possible light spangles the Mediterranean to create a setting for sybarites and shadows for well-dressed decadence. Walk up to Castle Hill for a beautiful view of the city, the Bay of Angels and the bright blue water that gave Cte dAzur its name. Bask in the glory of this playful slice of opulent French living at Ulysse villa!

The house is very nice and the installations are complete, as all the guests found themselves at home, there. The house lady was very supportive and available when required.

This villa was in a great location with a beautiful view. Well furnished but lay out a little odd. Stair cases very narrow and spiral. Had to use the lift/elevator for the different floors. All and all, a great vacation.

Exceptional Vacation Experience!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed in Villa Ulysse for one month; and the experience was absolutely exceptional in every way. The Villa itself was superb, very well maintained. The staff was extremely attentive and their service was world-class. The attitude of of the staff was extremely professional and accommodating and they all went out of their way to provide exceptional service. The Chef was remarkable; and the food and presentation was superb! I would 100% recommend this Villa; and we look forward to booking the villa again!

Stunning views over Villefranche and cap ferat.

  • 4 of 5

Ulysee was a wonderful place to stop and spend a week after traveling through Europe for six weeks. We were welcomed by Nicholas and shown the running of the villa and then a quick tour of the village and places to buy groceries, and the markets and cafés, marina etc. Nicholas gave us a good overview of the area which was much appreciated.

The house accommodated 5 of us well although I was hoping that the twin room could be turned into a double to make it feel more luxurious. Fatima did her best to understand us and was great to have around to clean up after us and keep the villa clean and tidy. She was always happy to oblige. It was a restful holiday.
