About Robert Griffiths

The villa was purchased in 2001 and has undergone complete refurbishment since then by the French architect, Olivier Ghibaudo, renowned for the quality of his work in the Cote d'Azur.

Why Robert Griffiths chose Rayol-Canadel-sur-Mer

Rayol Canadel is a very sought after conservation area. There is only one building (to my knowledge) over two storeys high. It is totally unspoilt, calm and relaxing. It is easy to explore Var and beyond from Rayol. It is well served by public transport, yet undiscovered by mass tourism. The beach is always accessible and relatively uncrowded as there is very limited parking. The climate is beautiful. Mild winters, gorgeous in Spring through to October. A very 'green' environment throughout the year. The region makes excellent wines and there are numerous vineyards to explore. All in all a wonderful place!

                                                              We loved our stay at La Calade - a beautiful, well maintained villa, in a great location.The villa itself is well laid out and decorated in a simple/warm way. Whike the pool is wonderful and shows off the incredible views to the full.
