About Jean Pierre Leyx
I am retired (65). Formerly chartered accountant. Living near Paris
Jean Pierre Leyx purchased this House in 1956
Why Jean Pierre Leyx chose Nice
I spent a large part of my childhood in this house (I was 6 when my parents moved in).To keep it (I mean to support the maintenance cost), the only solution was seasonal rental). I discovered that it was a very nice way of getting links with a lot of people from many countries. Their enthousiasm when they arrive and during their stay is a real satisfaction.
What makes this House unique
The situation of this villa is THE key point. An exceptional view, peaceful surroundings, in the green, and however it is very close to the sea, the old town and the city and many touristic spots.

Perfect location for Nice and the Riviera
Don't hesitate to book this lovely villa. Tastefully decorated it has all you need. A large balcony allows views across the harbour and the port. The villa is located on a street with other properties that has gated security access by key remote . Car parking is off road next to the house. There is no noise from surrounding properties or from external traffic which is surprising for a large city like Nice. Grocery shopping is just 1 minute away by car and a large Carrefour is just 5 minutes way. Many restaurants and other entertainment are all close by. We were met on our arrival and departure by the owners representative who was totally helpful and available at other times if required. Communication with the owner is first class and the service he provides cannot be faulted. There is just one complaint....we should have stayed longer! We will return if we visit Nice again.
A fantastic house in every way.
I have been holidaying in rented properties in Europe for many years and this was probably the best of all the places I've stayed.
The house is stunning, incredibly well equipped, nicely decorated and furnished and with wonderful views. The location is fantastic as the villa is about a 15 minute walk from the port and old town but in a quiet and safe neighbourhood.
The owner went out of his way to provide very detailed information about the house and communication was exemplary both before and during our stay.
This property really does have the "wow factor" and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it - you won't want to leave!
"We spent two weeks in Vi...
"We spent two weeks in Villa L''Herm in July 2012 (wk 28 and 29). We rented a car from airport and it immediately felt safe, when we noticed that Allee de la Palmiere is behind a gate. We were given the code to open it when we arrived. Houda and Philippe live next door so we were given the keys and instructions and Tour de Villa at once. And we fell in love with the villa really. The view is wonderful to Vieux Port, The Chateau Hill, Promenad des Anglais , airport and the city towards MAMAC. The house is like a home, full of small details all around. I particularly liked the library: I was able of study the history and geography of France. WiFi works without problem. TV sets, DVD and radio were also nice. Kitchen is good, we ate either on terrass or in the kitchen. It was never too hot at night because there are numerous electrical coolers in the house. I liked the pool, the water was not too warm (like neighbour Helmut''s, very nice neighbour though). Second week we had four children as our guests and they loved the pool, and it was also safe because it is only 120cm deep. We could easily walk to Vieux Ville, only 20 min. The car is easy to park either on the allele or in the yard. Washing machines worked as they should. Totally perfect. We felt privileged to live there! My mother, now 77 y, planned to rent L''Herm with couple of her lady friends. She liked the 1 floor arrangement, no stairs, except the cellar of course."

We stayed in this villa for one week in July 2017, and we thought that we should have been there for two weeks or more.
That was our first time to spend our vacation in Nice and we had a lot of concerns regarding our staying. However, as soon as we arrived there, all concerns were simply vanished.
You will, above all, appreciate that magnificent view of Sea, Vieux Port, Chateau Hill, City, Nice airport, and very clean environment, including the pool and the garden, etc. And then, the house sitter will welcome you sincerely, ready to answer all your questions about your staying. You can see that the villa has been maintained perfectly. While we stayed there, a gardener came to take care of plants. Many things in the villa show you that the owner has a taste, must be very French, which will make you feel at home.
We did not have to rent a car, because the villa was close to the city center, and walking down to the city in the morning was a pure pleasure.
This villa can be one of a kind for a family, probably more suitable for a small family. The villa provides all the things needed to have a perfect vacation and above all a wonderful souvenir.
We are planning to go back to this beautiful villa next July 2018.
I think your villa is very stylish comfortable and must have one of the best views in Nice. I loved just sitting on the balcony and taking in the surroundings as the evening approached. The villa had everything you could need or want.
The swimming pool was perfect with the water jet to swim against I had a daily work-out!
