A fabulous villa with a view which is hard to beat
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!
I am grateful to the reviewer for this unsolicited testimonial. I can assure all prospective future renters of our property that the high standards of our property are continuously and rigorously maintained. They will love it!
classic cote d'azur
we had a wonderful stay at ogilvie- both the weather and villa were ideal and the tourist sights uncrowded at the end of the season- some memorable sun and moon rises across the bay, sun bathing cocktails and BBQ ing on the terrace-couldnt have been better
Family holiday May 2017
This beautiful classic French villa with stunning views over the Mediterranean provided an ideal location for our family get together. We mainly eat in, buying food from the local Theoule farmers shop (7 minutes) and the Giant Hypermarket (15 minutes); but when eating out we had a wide range of choices from Michelin starred restaurants to excellent bars and brasseries overlooking the Med.
If you want to spend your time lying on long golden sandy beaches this is not the place to go. This section of the French coast has some beaches, but they are not great.
For everything else though this villa is wonderful.
Breakfast on the terrace as the sun rises over the Mediterranean; lying by the pool seeing the super yachts sail into Cannes; watching the once weekly Nice firework display whilst sipping bubbly on the terrace; it would be hard to find a better holiday experience.
I thoroughly recommend that you spend one evening visiting Mougins, a hilltop village about 25 minutes drive which is an oasis of lovely bars, restaurants and art galleries with beautiful views over the hills.
We will be staying at Villa Ogilvie again.
stunning tranquile amazing villa
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.
So glad you enjoyed it - you were fabulous guests and are welcome back any time!
A Millionaire's pad with a priceless view
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.
Thanks for the kind words. We too dream of the villa, especially on rainy Mondays in London!
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.
