Rayol-Canadel-sur-Mer Villa Rental Photos and Description

6 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, kitchen, living room, tv room, large terrace

La Villa Mimosa is full of charm and character. From the moment you step onto the terrace you'll be on holidays. There are 6 double bedrooms, 2 downstairs and 4 upstairs. Four of the bedrooms have sea views. Upstairs there are 2 bathrooms, one with separate wc, while downstairs there is a bathroom with separate wc. The kitchen which has an Aga, is very simple, but has all mod-cons and is well stocked with crockery, utensils, Nespresso coffee machine etc. A small laundry room is off the kitchen. The TV room has wi-fi, satellite TV, Apple TV and DVD player. There is a large living room with dining table and TV/DVD player. Beside the living room is a sun/reading room. Both of these rooms lead onto the terrace, which is where you'll probably spend most of your holiday. There is plenty of room for entertaining and dining al fresco. The garden is private and there is ample parking.

We had a fabulous time at the house . It was perfect for a large group of family/friends. So well equipped. Easy access to beach, bakery, butcher, restaurants and grocery store.

Denise was gracious and so responsive to my questions and emails. A more than perfect holiday. Thank-you Denise!

Big Bright and Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great holiday in Villa Mimosa. A big bright and airy house with a great feeling of history. The house is beautiful but not in any way fussy. It has a truly relaxed atmosphere. The bedrooms (6) are all lovely, especially the master - so spacious and with lovely views of the Med. We spent a lot of time on the large terrace enjoying the magnificent view!

I would certainly recommend Villa Mimosa for a great holiday. There are good restaurants, the beach and all necessary amenities close by. You get all the luxury and benefits of the Cote d'azur without the crowds !

A holiday to remember in a delightful home.

  • 5 of 5

The house is a delight, designed by Henry Royce of Rolls-Royce fame and built in a lovely area overlooking the Mediterranean at Le Canadel in the south of France.

It is a large home as described with many bedrooms and bathrooms. The kitchen is large and well equiped. Everything you need is provided. The location is great and is within walking distance to the beach, and there are good shops a short drive away. The house was in very good order and clean with all the sheets and towels provided. Everything promised was provided.

I would highly recommend this property to any friend or relative or any other person.

The house being in the south of France is in a very central location so all the main towns like Nice, Monte Carlo, Marseille and St Tropez are a short drive away and easily reached.

To sum up it is a great house in a wonderful location and makes for such a fantastic holiday.

Villa Mimosa, home of Sir Henry Royce

  • 5 of 5

The house has an air of authenticity and retains many original features, it really did feel as if Henry could have been there yesterday. If Rolls-Royce was a religion ( and maybe it is) this would be the Temple.

As a Rolls-Royce enthusiast driving 1600 miles from Cumbria UK to Villa Mimosa in a 1938 Rolls-Royce Wraith WRB60 one could have no better place to stay.

Stay at Villa Mimosa, Le Canadel

  • 5 of 5

We had a most interesting and enjoyable visit to Henry Royce's (of Rolls-Royce) former Winter home, Villa Mimosa, at Le Canadel. Royce designed and built the house almost exactly 100 years prior to our visit.

Above Villa Mimosa is Villa Jaune, the home of Claude Johnson (RR's Managing Director), below is Le Bureau, the design office, and at the bottom of the road, adjacent to the main road, is Villa Rossignol, accommodation for the senior designers who worked with Henry Royce. On the opposite side of the main road is the Garage, where the cars were accommodated and serviced, and there was an electrical generator for the villas.

There were 8 of us, using 5 bedrooms (we didn't use the children's bedroom) - this was a comfortable number. The bedrooms are of a generous size, as is the rest of the property. The owner will provide a very helpful plan of the property (I used it to allocate the bedrooms).

The weather was excellent - sunny and about 23C. We swam in the sea every day. The beach is very close, on the opposite side of the main road, probably 200ft (60 metres) below Villa Mimosa - the land is quite steep, with Col de Canadel peak at 850ft.

We had all our meals on the terrace (except dinners at local restaurants) with magnificent views of the sea, surrounding countryside and islands in the distance. The kitchen had all the facilities we required. Behind the terrace is the lounge/dining room, and there's another lounge on the west side.

The house is very comfortable and clean, with a 1950/60s feel to the decorations, very appropriate for the age of the house. There's no air conditioning, but many fans, and awnings and shutters to minimise sunlight (when we were there, it was not a problem). There's generous car parking, although turning round in the drive (or the road) can be tight.

The description of the property is very accurate as are the pictures. I've used the pictures when describing our holiday. Downstairs there's a bathroom & separate loo, upstairs two en suites with shower and loo.

There are no shops in Le Canadel, but a good selection at Le Rayol, 2 miles to the East and Cavaler, probably 3-4 miles to the west (where there's a good beach with no steep hills, and a large car park). St Tropez is not too far to the East, and all the Cote D'Azure attractions to Monaco are not too much further. And there are many restaurants at Le Canadel, Le Rayol and Cavaler.

Highly recommended - I hope to return in 2013

Car: recommended

La Villa Mimosa is located in Le Canadel which is about a 3 minute drive from the local village of Le Rayol. It is situated at the foot of the Massif des Maures mountains, with stunning views over the bay of Canadel and the Îles d'Or. A 5 minute walk will bring you to the charming beach of Canadel, where you can soak up the sun and have a leisurely lunch at either the L'Ancre d'Or or the fashionable Tropicana Club. The village of Le Rayol has every convenience one could want, but if you wish to travel further, the town of Le Lavandou is situated 10 km to the west and trendy St Tropez 25 km to the east. There are many beautiful beaches in the area and in nearby Cavalière, watersports are available. In Le Rayol, a visit to the beautiful Jardin des Méditerranées is recommended. Sir Henry Royce of Rolls Royce fame built Villa Mimosa in 1912 and wintered here for 20 years.
