Situated in between the mountains and the Mediterranean, the Cote d'Azur enjoys the unique benefits of both. This is a region of medieval villages, local markets, fabulous walks and breathtaking views and a world-renowned coastline - and of course a wonderful choice of restaurants. So much to see and do. Visit the lively village of Valbonne, the gourmet restaurants of Mougins, the perfumeries of Grasse, Monaco and the old town of Nice, St Paul de Vence - home to the Impressionist painters and now a centre for contemporary art. Stroll along the Promenade des Anglais in Nice, join the jet set on the Cannes Croisette, or take the stunning Gourdon walk through the Gorge du Loup. Or simply sit back under the olive trees with a glass of chilled rose wine. It’s a place to take at your own pace.

Pool / Spa
Beautiful house in fantastic grounds
My family and I stayed at this wonderful house. The house is well equipped and was set up for all our needs. The bedrooms were spacious, comfortable and clean. The garden and pool was an absolute dream especially for our three children who loved exploring the hidden hideaways in the grounds as well as the swings and slides. On one occasion they loved picking some tomatoes from the garden. The pool was very safe for our young children as had alarm. We enjoyed many evenings dining outside in the beautiful surroundings. The forest is on the doorstep which is great for walks and the two local viliages had fantastic boulangeries and food shopping.
Jerome and his family were so welcoming and went out of their way to help us. Nothing was too much trouble for Jermone and he really helped us when my child was unwell. We hope to comeback one day. My children were very sad to leave.
Beautiful, relaxing and well- appointed villa home
This is a lovely home in a beautiful location. The property is clean and very well maintained. The owner provided excellent customer service and provided many recommendations of things to see and places to go. As a first time visitor to France, it was a wonderful environment to wind down after visiting places such as Gorges du Verdon, Nice, Monaco, Cannes, and San Paulo. I would highly recommend this property!
Excellent house for family holiday
This house pleasantly surprised us, as the house and its grounds were better than the photographs indicated. It was a great house for us a party of four, two adults and two kids. House is a fully equipped family home with everything you require .
Jerome and Candide were great hosts who welcomed us on arrival, after meeting us en route due to my navigation skills. They went through all the basics of the house and reinforced that we should make full use of everything there. They went above and beyond to help us during the holiday also.
The house itself is thirty minutes from Nice airport and within easy driving of Nice, Cannes and Antibes (car essential for this property). We also were parked in Monaco in under an hour!
The house is well equipped and had everything to keep a teenager and under 10 happy. Swimming pool (with alarm) was used extensively, while garden is large enough for teenager to find quiet space to sit out and spend some time studying in the sun. Hot tub was a big favourite in the evening to relax after a day out.
The house is quite secluded and all the neighbours were very low key. They is a well stocked Intermarche (with petrol station) about fives away in the car and many smaller shops in Le Rouret and Rochefort Le Pins.
All in all this property gave us a great base for a family looking to switch off for a week, whilst exploring an area we had never been to before. It was close enough to beaches and towns to make trips out easy, but nicely positioned away from all of the frenetic energy of the coastal locations. Thoroughly recommend.
Very nice Villa
The Villa is approx. 20 minutes away from Antibe and Cagnes-sur-Mer in the hills of the Cote Azur. By car you get quite quickly to the sea. The house is very well equipped and has a nice kitchen with a lot of tools. All rooms have a friendly personal look and feel as the owners live/lived there. But the best of the Villa is the beautiful garden. The garden is very well kept with a lot of beautiful details. You can see that the garden is made with love. Also the pool is very nice. And the jacuzzi is simply great. There is a garden lounge too. All is quite close together so there is no problem to have an eye on the kids. That offers real holidays for the parents. In summary the Villa is top. Thanks a lot to Jerome for the nice stay.
Villa Candide July2015
Lovely, well-equipped property. Highly recommended. We particularly enjoyed the pool and the very private garden. Lots of space with different areas so six adults could enjoy a relaxing holiday without being on top of each other. It would also be suitable for families with children.
We enjoyed buying fresh food at the local shops and cooking and eating dinner outside each evening. There are restaurants nearby for those who don’t want to cook – Le Clos St Pierre is well worth a visit. Lovely terrace and excellent food and ambience.
Very convenient as a centre for vising inland places of interest and the coastal towns. Lots to see and do in the area without having to travel far.
Thank you to Candide and Jerome for their welcome and for ensuring we had an excellent holiday.
A big thank you also to Ahmed the gardener who was extremely helpful and picked some excellent tomatoes from the garden for us to enjoy.
A relaxing stay
We have stayed in quite a few villas in the south of France and this was definitely one of the nicest! It's all on one level with the villa opening onto a good sized terrace adjacent to the pool. The terrace has an automatic awning which is great during the middle of the day when it can get quite hot. The separate decking area is an added bonus with comfortable armchair/sofa seating overlooking the pool - a great vantage point for watching the kids messing about or just a pleasant area to relax, read or sunbathe in.
The villa is well proportioned in the main living areas, with a good sized kitchen 'flowing' onto the main terrace and added mod cons such as the induction hob and wall mounted oven/grill. Other things we liked were the security and safety aspects of the automatic shutters and the glass doors which slide neatly into the walls during the day. We were also glad of the fans in the bedrooms at night - especially when it got really hot.
All in all, this is a really relaxing place to stay; it's a lovely setting, private and well maintained and the weekly visit from the friendly housekeeper kept it looking its best!
Thanks a lot Amanda, we hope to see you back very soon!
