The villa is a fantastic property set in a 2500m2 exotic garden with beautiful views of the mountains
and chateau de Castellaras . This property is situated just 2 kilometers from the village, on a hill
in Valbonne, in a perfectly quiet setting and walking distance to the village centre. Its beautiful
and large pool 10m x 5 is an ideal place to lounge and relax or enjoy barbecue meals.
Villa valbonne is an ecologically built (green environment) home . It's building materials, (thick bricks with special
circulation inside), and the mathematical study of the inclinaton of the roof , which doesn't
allow the sun to come in during the summer ,makes the inside of the property have a natural
cool place during the summer and needing very little heating during the winter months.
The villa is ideally located to enjoy the whole Riviera coast being situated just 10 minutes drive from motorway and 20 minutes from either Antibes or Cannes.
In Valbonne there are many restaurants ,cafes/bars as well as craft shops, potteries and food markets.
A busy market is held each Friday providing an ideal opportunity to purchase local cheeses, wines
and other produce of the region. On the first Sunday of each month a 'brocante' market takes
place bringing together antiques and bric-a-brac sellers from the area.
All activities are nearby - at least 5 golf courses within 10 minutes, local tennis club on the doorstep,
horse riding, and lovely walks in the beautiful surrounding countryside..
The closest restaurant is L'auberge fleurie , 5 minutes walk from the villa .
t has been an absolute delight to spend the week at your beautiful home. The kids thoroughly enjoyed the pool, we have all enjoyed playing boules, and shared some fabulous meals at all the well placed tables. Our holiday has been made easy by having access to all the comforts of home. Thank again William and Debbie & family
The Villa is charming and in a wonderful location. Gloria the managing agent greeted us and was very welcoming and helpful. In the weeks prior to the holiday, she had dealt with all my email queries very professionally too. As a consequence, we settled in quickly and were able to make the most of our one week stay. It's amazing how quickly the villa feels like a home from home. It's decorated in a quirky style with lots of interesting features. The four stars were really just to acknowledge that it needs a little refreshing but all its essential features are in good order. The pool is particularly good and actually quite large. I would definitely return for another family holiday either in Villa Cactus or another managed by Gloria. There's so much to see and do in the area that one trip is obviously not enough.
We (as a family) had the most fantastic stay this summer in the villa. We would most certainly return and happily recommend it to friends. It also represented extremely good value as there are quite a few of us, but we never felt 'crowded' as the villa was airy and spacious. The villa is very well supplied, incidentally I do not
feel the photos do it justice - so we were very pleasantly surprised on arrival! The location was also great - quiet but within easy walking distance of the very attractive Provencal village of
Valbonne and 15 mins to nearest beach, (depending on traffic). The owner was excellent, very helpful indeed and she ensured that we had everything we needed and was contactable for
further info or help should we have required it. A great holiday - I just wish we had booked for longer - we will be back!!
The house is pleasant and located in a quite and nice area. The owner provided excellent service and we can recommend the house to others. We missed kitchen clothes. The washing machine (not the dish washer) was working, but the quality (wash result) could have been better. A leak from one of the toilets. Overall, a good and fine house, and we will consider to return
- toller Pool
- schöne Terrasse, auf der man zu 10. gut sitzen und essen kann
- top Lage (für Besuche nach Monaco, Nizza, Cannes und zum Meer)
- Esstisch im Esszimmer nicht für 10 Pers. ausgelegt
- Bäder/Schlafräume könnten etwas sauberer/moderner sein
Valbonne is without doubt one of the most wonderful places to visit on the Côte d'Azur. Only 20 minutes from Cannes, this superb medieval village is surrounded by forests (the Valmasque forest covers 427 hectares). Valbonne has kept the quality of its environment intact. In the village, you will be seduced by the charm of the narrow roads,bordered by colourful flowers and superb ancient houses. Picturesque door-ways with each
stone carefully restored, beautifully designed window-frames... there's a delightful detail everywhere you look! With the imprint of the past subtly conserved. The famous perfume factories of Grasse and the historical inland villages of Vence, Tourrettes or Gourdon are short drives away. The Riviera Resorts of Monaco and St Tropez make a good choice for day trips.
Golf: At least 5 golfs within 5/10 minutes drive
