Villa Ogilvie is particularly special! Having stayed in several rental villas in the South of France, the owners have an eye for detail which makes this villa the best we have ever rented.
The villa is arranged over two floors. There is a well appointed sitting room (with dining table is the weather is inclement) which opens onto the terrace with a large outdoor dining table and BBQ (with chimney) and the pool area. Next to this is a well equipped kitchen (with all essential kitchen appliances) and plenty of good quality crockery and cooking utensils (often so lacking in rental properties). Also on this level is a double bedroom with en-suite shower room. This also opens onto the terrace offering fabulous views over the Bay of Cannes and the Iles de Lerins. One of my most memorable mornings was waking (accidentally!) at 6am and seeing the amazing sunrise over the islands with fabulous warm light streaming across the glistening Med!
On the lower level are three more bedrooms (one double, two twins) all with en-suites (one has a bath) and a laundry room. There is an independent self-contained flatlet on the lower level (with independent TV, kitchen and bathroom) which is ideal should anyone bring the nanny (or the mother-in-law!).
The pool is well appointed with a great view. For me, it was a perfect size for cooling off and playing with kids. There is a closable gate to keep young children out of the area if adults are not supervising. There are plenty of sun loungers on both levels as well as outdoor seating areas for those who are not sun-lovers.
There is off road parking (although the drive is steep and it is best to reverse down). The property is only a short drive from Theoule-sur-Mer (about 5 mins) where there is an excellent selection of shops - boulangerie (2), a Spar and Casino supermarket, post office, cash point and of course excellent local restaurants. A superb Casino hypermarket can be found 15 min drive away at La Napoule, La Trayas is only 5 mins west on the road to Agay passing the fabulous Esterel mountains. The area is, of course, a gastronomic delight. Michelin starred restaurants abound for the nights that you don't fancy a BBQ!
It is only a 20min drive to Cannes and 45min to Nice Airport. St Tropez can be reached by boat from Cannes in 1.5 hours (car same time) and there are numerous ways of getting to the islands.
This villa has everything to make you holiday perfect - great location, high quality - home from home!
An amazing villa in a stunning, tranquile area looking over the bay of cannes.
There were 9 adults staying at the villa and we were all blown away by everything about the villa olgilvie. The villa was well
equiped with everything we needed and the owner was very responsive and
We did not hire a car but the bus that ran from outside the villa was always right on time taking 5 minutes along a beautiful coast road into Theoule sur mer. We had access to electric bikes which were fantastic for seeing the gorgeous sites on.
All the beds were very comfortable with air conditioning in each room.
We spent most of our time on the top pool terrace which led out from the lounge and kitchen. The pool area was gorgeous with the sun shining all day long but was also great as we could also access shade if needed. There were plenty of sun beds, sofas and seating on the terraces provided.
We had great fun having table tennis cimpetitions located on the lower terrace.
This villa was absolutely amazing and i will definatly return next year. Many thanks Philip.
Even the stunning pictures do not do the view from this villa justice, they are quite frankly spectacular. We were two families consisting of 4 adults and 5 children, and the accommodation absorbed us easily for our weeks stay, in fact we didn't even use the den/5th bedroom. The villa in decorated beautifully, all light colours and whites, very stylish and fresh. The feature room is the lounge which has a double aspect over the pool and then the views across the bay. We received very helpful communication before the trip, including essentials about the villa, ideas for days out and directions. On arrival we were greeted by Crystel and her daughter who helped show us around and gave some advice about the pool and hot tub etc. There are lots of nice little mod cons, such as the Nespresso machine, Sonos sound system and decent wifi. When we needed the pool given an extra clean mid way through the stay, then Fabrice was down that same day to top it up and get it ship shape for the next day. There is a table tennis table which got extensive use and the two terraces provide lots of space for play. There lots of seating areas around the pool and on the terraces to unwind and read a good book. The location is very quiet on a hill off the main coast road up from Theoule sur Mer. The sandy beach is a 10 minute drive and there you will find a number of good restaurants and facilities like a post office. For more lively towns there is Cannes close by and Antibes too offers a great place to visit and enjoy a meal. We could not have been more impressed with the villa, the communication with the owners, the support whilst we were there. It was a home from home and the view is now my screen saver! We could not recommend it enough!
We stayed here for 2 weeks at the end of August and loved it. We were a mixed party of children, teenagers adults and an Oap.
The Villa is absolutly charming, and has everything you could need. The views are to die for and the weather was amazing.
To sum it up we all had a fabulous holiday and have been dreaming of our little piece of heaven ever since.
Brilliant location, great accommodation, breath-taking views and the sun shone!
The information provided was spot-on and the owner couldn't have been more helpful!
All five adults and three children wouldn't hesitate to recommend this to anyone.
Having stayed a few times in this area, this Villa has the best views by far. After a very long drive, within an hour of arriving we were on the terrace with the children happily in the pool, totally relaxed. There are two terraces, but we lived on the top one, excpet when we all played table tennis. The layout is excellent - with the kitchen and lounge all leading on to the terrace, and the pool on the same level. We only cooked on the BBQ which was easy, and there is plenty of good quality matching crockery and glasses, which can be unusual in rental properties. Everything you might have wanted was there.
The pool and terrance lose the sun at about 5ish which was a shame for the pool area, but did mean that the terrace and bedrooms were never too hot, and we always slept well, and never had that low late sun to deal with. All the linen and towels and bath towels are very high quality, and useful to have SKY to keep up with the news! As mentioned in other reviews the drive is very steep, and ensure that you reverse down with care. Although the villa is on a main road do not be worried as there is little traffice noise, and the terrace is on the other side of the house. Theoule sur Mer does get busy unless you get there early or late evening which suited us better with young children. Cannes only a 20 min drive away and a huge hypermarket at La Napoule where you can get everything. We rarely ventured out as it was far more relaxing to stay at the villa. Take binoclulars so you can see the huge super yachts better!! A very relaxing holiday in a very special villa.
The location is quiet and protected but close to both beach mountains. There are many restaurants & bars in the immediate vicinity, with the shops and glamour of Cannes and St Tropez under 30 minutes away
There is a huge area for walking in the nearby parc de l'Esterel, and further afield in the stunning Gorges du Verdon (Grand canyon du Verdon).
Golf: There are approximately 10 excellent 18-hole Golf courses within 30-40 minutes drive, the closest 10 minutes away.
