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.

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.
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!
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.
The villa was furnished in good taste and with modern technology
It has all facilities you may need
Maid was very helpful
Can park one car easily ...... not sure about 2 cars
Has a lift - this helped since climbing stairs is not easy for my parents who were with us
The house has a swing ..... my father loves swings
Everything was not exactly as described on the website , but i have no reason for complaint
The location is exclusive. The view is best. Sure beats staying in a 6-star hotel.....
We had an absolutely lovely stay at Ulysee. The pre-planning was a breeze, and Emma and Kirsten were incredibly helpful with all of our questions and requests. They took on any challenge with a smile, and most importantly, we never felt like our requests were a bother or a burden. On arriving at the villa, we were in awe of the stunning location and view, which the pictures cannot adequately describe. The villa itself was lovely, and easily accommodated our large group. It really felt like home. We had a fantastic vacation, and can't say enough good things about UIysse and Luxury Retreats!
