The French Riviera is a place of unparalleled coastal beauty and luxurious lifestyles. This is an ultramodern, four bedroom chateau, with room for nine, that overlooks the gorgeous Port de Villefranche-sur-Mer and the ancient orange tiled rooftops of old St. Jean-Cap-Ferrat. Located discreetly upon a subtle elevation, Villa Hippocampo is removed from the hustle and bustle of the busy cosmopolitan town below, though remains conveniently close to the ineffable magic that is the South of France.
Villa Hippocampo is pleased to offer its guests unlimited outgoing international phone calls, in addition to several hundred television channels – on six televisions – offered in many languages. Guests also receive a lovely welcome package of local staples and delicacies in order to skip over the mundane task of grocery shopping. The villa also possesses a vast furnished terrace complete with an alfresco dining area and a stunning zero-edge swimming pool that seems to blend in with the nearby harbor.
The architecture of Villa Hippocampo has allowed for stellar views of the scenic harbor from nearly every room, as the entire southern wall is made up of all glass and with multiple balconies. The interior of the villa has been done in a standard French marine motif with calming blues and whites in both its contemporary chic furniture and objets d’art. The Great Room contains both an ample relaxing lounge area and space for six to dine. The cuisine has ample room, a functional design and only the latest in stainless-steel appliances.
Even laying one’s head down to rest at night will be a pleasure for guests staying at Villa Hippocampo. The four bedrooms all contain plush king beds, full en-suite bathrooms and balconies with delightful views of the bay. Though equal in features, each room has been given a distinct personality from one another with a vibrant touch of color and fetching works of art.
Less than a century ago, the French Riviera was the exclusive playground for Europe’s elite. Today, guests of Villa Hippocampo can enjoy its surreal combination of sunny beaches and a rich artistic legacy. This part of the southern French coastline is dotted with museums and monuments that attracts untold numbers of sun seekers each year. Bon voyage!
