About Katherine Craig-Cameron
Originally from England, we have both worked professionally in the Super Yacht industry and travelled extensively around the world, in both the Northern and Southern Hemispheres, crossing the Atlantic numerous times, and sailing through the Pacific. We have been lucky enough to experience many countries, villas and yachts, yet we both always felt a pull towards the South of France as an area for us to settle and put down our roots. We initially rented a property in the area and after 8 months we discovered and purchased L'Oliveraie, with the large garden, peace and quiet, and the views being an immediate selling point. The villa itself, and the large pool, required some updating which we set about straight away.
Katherine Craig-Cameron purchased this Villa in 2011
Why Katherine Craig-Cameron chose Châteauneuf
We were attracted to living somewhere with great views, the proximity to the mountains for day skiing, the beaches, great wine, food and warm sunny climate. We can go day skiing in February on a Saturday and have Sunday lunch outside by the beach the next day! The property was a successful summer rental property with the previous owners, with frequent repeat clients. We have given it some much needed updating and modernisation and have continued letting it successfully for short term rentals
What makes this Villa unique
L'Oliveraie is incredibly peaceful, and not over looked, yet it is not isolated, and is walking distance to some local amenities. Our immediate area offers everything needed, from restaurants, wine bars, markets, play parks, close by river and mountain walks, skiing in winter season, beaches in summer season, horse riding, golf, adventure days on both water and land, shopping, vineyards, mountain villages, the glam of Cannes, Nice, Monacco, and of course sailing. Something for everyone all year round! We have a relatively flat garden (with some terracing) great for children. Many properties in this region have steeper terraced gardens. We have a large pool with a modern electric security safety cover recently installed. Sonos wireless sound system in many rooms. Modern kitchen.

My partner and I brought our 3 daughters with their boyfriends, all of whom had recently finished University/A levels etc. The lay out of the place with a luxury master bedroom upstairs with a state of the art excellent kitchen, separate dinning room and large lounge along with terrace (with breath taking views) was ideal. Better still, there was plenty of room for all of them downstairs! The photos really don’t do the place justice, it also has an out door seating area, large bbq area with large table and the pool is great. The garden was much bigger than the photos suggest and the large trees provide privacy. Best of all, this was obviously someone’s home and was furnished and equipped accordingly. The owners gave very efficient instructions with people on hand when needed. It truly was the best family holiday we have ever had and would love to go back.
We are so pleased you enjoyed your time on the Côte d'Azur and that your stay at villa L'Oliveraie was enjoyable and met or exceeded all your expectations. Thank you for your positive review and we look forward to welcoming you back again next time you visit. Kind regards from the Owners.
A fabulous holiay
The photos do not do this justice! A beautiful house in an ideal location.
The house has ample space and is beautifully equipped and furnished although also everything you could need for kids including toy room downstairs and a trampoline at the end of the garden. We even picked our own fruit!
Perfect for two families that can have their own floor and space but equally cosy for one. We enjoyed many a glass of wine on the balcony as the sun went down overlooking the most magnificent view of Gourdon and Opio. We look forward to going again soon.
We had a fantastic holiday. Would definitely recommend staying here. We rented this Villa with friends, the location is brilliant, the views are great and we where so impressed with the Villa that we have already booked to return in 2014.
