Beautiful little villa with wonderful garden
It is a very pretty small villa perfect with children because of the lovely garden and pool. We had a great time.
Beautiful beautiful little bijoux
Absolutely stunning garden. Gorgeous pool, sitting area, dining area, bbq, ping pong and lovely little front garden too surrounded by flowers and the most heavenly scent.
Inside just a delight. Every attention to detail. Very comfortable. Brilliant high pressure walk in shower -rare in France! :-) Absolutely can’t wait to go back. Thank you for having us and for the super welcome basket!
Amazing family retreat in Saint Jean Cap Ferrat
Our family rented this beautiful villa for 2 weeks whilst in SJCF for our wedding and we had the most amazing time staying there, perfect in every way.
The villa is well kept and has everything you would need on your holiday, much much more than standard holiday rental properties offer.
The bedrooms are of a good size, with ample wardrobe space in each to unpack your clothes properly.
All the beds were very comfortable & well presented with new sheets and covers. They even had spare sets at the ready when the cleaner came!
The bathrooms are newly renovated and well appointed, all the towels again were new and of excellent quality.
There is a cute TV area that was not shown in the pictures. The ceiling has a very interesting ambient light display that changes colours at night.
This area has a big flat screen LCD and DVD player with a wide selection of DVDs.
The house has a Bose iPod doc that can face out to the pool to get the party started or we used it to chill out to some Cafe Del Mar.
MOST importantly really good wi fi!
The wifi reception worked all around the house and outside, superb.
The house has a new air con unit that cools the whole house down quickly when it is on, even in mid July, lifesaver.
The pool was fantastic & tranquil, surprisingly large and deep at the far end, well maintained and was always at a good temperature.
It gets great all day sun for those who were sun baking on the sun lounges but there was plenty of shade for children under the marque umbrellas or under the gorgeous pepper tree which has a very large & comfortable out door lounge under it. Great spot for afternoon naps.
There are two huge out door tables with matching chairs and two split levels to use them on. Very handy for all the entertaining we did and right next to the BBQ. We ate outside every night, divine.
The house is extremely secure and has automatic security front gates and an internal safe also, a big plus for us traveling with valuables.
There is secure off street parking and lots of parking on street if you have visitors as often as we did.
It is in a very quiet street & a 3 min drive to the village.
Grand Hotel Du Cap is a 5 min walk for lunch at Club Dauphin and the lighthouse is a 7 min walk, when we fancied a quick dip in the sea.
This villa gave us real value for money and the owners clearly love the place very much & were a delight to deal with.
We'll be back for years to come.

Beautifully villa in a quiet residential area
This beautifully presented villa is the perfect place for a quiet and peaceful escape yet has all the local amenities within easy reach.
The owner and property manger were both extremely helpful in giving information and organising pre and also during the trip.
The house was very clean and very tastefully decorated and just the perfect size for our family of 5. The bathrooms in particular were large, modern and luxurious.
The large pool and garden are also maintained to a very high standard and I would have scored the villa 5 stars if the pool had been heated (I was aware of this before I booked). This would not be an issue in summer but in late spring it made the pool unusable to all but my tough 7yr old! It was beautiful to look at though.
It has a shared driveway but it still felt private and quiet and was very secure with 2 locked gates to get to the front door. Wi Fi service was excellent.
Within easy reach by car of Nice airport and all the major towns along the coast including Monaco and over the border into Italy. The local town and beaches are within walking distance (hilly!) but you do really need a car to appreciate the area fully. The Grand Hotel Cap du Ferrat is outstanding and only a 5 minute walk for amazing views, food and prices! Worth it though.
There is a great coastal walk around the cap too which you can access at several points quite near to the villa. For luxury 'on the beach' you must visit Paloma Beach and go to Passable beach for a lovely sunset with dinner. Both within 30 mins walking distance but only a 5 min drive.
I would definitely recommend this villa for a relaxing holiday and as a great base to explore the South of France.
TWO FANTASTIC WEEKS AT VILLA PARADIS
My husband and I, and our two children (23/26yrs old) just returned from a wonderful southern France vacation in St Jean Cap Ferrat. From the first contact with Natasha about her villa when I discovered it on HomeAway last fall to all the photos of the villa to the ongoing communications up until we traveled to France, our experience was just delightful! It is rare when the actual property exceeds your expectations but this one did. While the pool area is every bit as perfect as the pictures, the inside of the villa was much more beautiful than the photos. With open spaces and cozy corners, a large kitchen with everything I needed to do some French cooking and the very cool bathroom design we were more than happy to just "hang" there. The villa was a great base to see so much. Each day began with caffe and croissants in St Jean and then a trip to one of the incredible villages/cities so nearby. We went to: Nice, Antibes, Monaco, Vence, Eze and of course Beaulieu-sur-Mer and Villefranche-sur-Mer. We used the great train and bus systems to go to Nice, Monaco and Antibes.
We also did the walks around Cap Ferrat ending at beautiful beach clubs where we had lunch.
Our favorite restaurants were Bar du Port Restaurant in St Jean and la Trinquette in Villefranche-sur-Mer ...because we felt they were both so genuine with lots of locals dining there.
My only suggestions are add a couple of sharper knives to your well equipped kitchen and upload some better pictures of the interior, including the bathrooms!
We would definitely come back.
Just spent a glorious time at this gorgeous property. We know the Cap well and this was our 4th visit and definitely the best property yet. The garden is out of this world. Beautifully lush with the palms and exotic plants, amazing pool (especially for a 3 bedroom, wow!), perfect lazing areas throughout the front, back and side gardens, full sized fold out exterior ping pong table in the side garden (such fun!) and the perfect set up for evening cocktails and BBQs.
The interior feels very open, light and cool and extremely comfortable and the location could not be more ideal. Perfectly quiet (it's on a beautifully quiet road with glorious properties (including the mayor's) for peaceful days but only a few minutes from the footpath that runs around the edge of the whole cap, and its a nice walk to the village too. We actually used the facilities of the Grand Hotel du Cap a lot, which is only a 2 minute walk from the villa. It's a stunning hotel which opens it spa, its tennis courts and it's beach club to visitors which was a huge plus for us seeing we were there for several weeks.
All in all a wonderful wonderful villa, very fairly priced in our view with very helpful and accommodating owners. Will definitely be going back!
