Guestbook comments from the owner

Date of Stay 02 June 2012

Our group stayed at the Villa Dracoena for a week at the beginning of June, and we had the times of our lives. The location of the villa is unbeatable (wonderfully elegant neighbourhood, close to Promenade des Anglais and the beach, as well as shops and restaurants, also close to bus stops), and the view is magnificent - even better than it looks in photos. The villa is gorgeous, very well maintained, with beautiful rooms and a very well appointed kitchen. We already miss our morning coffee on the terrace overlooking the Mediterranean and are very much hoping to be able to go back to the Villa Dracoena soon.

You’ve found dates available for booking this villa? You’ve been incredibly lucky – book it now! Otherwise someone else will do it and you will regret missing these opportunities:

- spending every day watching from all the windows the sparkling surface of the sea;

- going to bed every night feeling as if you’re visiting your “grandmother’s house”;

- sleeping at arm’s length from tangerines hanging in the tree in the garden;

- swimming in a pool, where the water is heated and can be as warm as you need;

- sunbathing at any time of the day by the pool in the garden, where it’s sunny from the early morning to the late evening;

- going for a slow walk in the garden with dozens of different kinds of plants and flowers, picking and eating tangerines and lemons fresh from the trees, listening to birds singing and having a ride on a swing, or having barbeque ;

- having easy access to all the city's entertainment, but enjoying quietness of country life at the same time;

- meeting successful and wealthy people, who have a peaceful and respectful pace of life, who greet you in the friendliest way, every time they see you, as their dearest neighbour;

What does France and the French Riviera mean for you? If it’s progressive art, a little ironic luxury of the Belle Époque, the joy of the good life, friendly respectable neighbours, who have no reason to wish harm to you, then the Villa Dracoena is the place for you.

You will remember you stay in Villa Dracoena as a time of peace and calm in historical interiors created with taste and attention to every detail. The upper level of the villa is the living room with panoramic windows, through which you can look at the sea and palm trees, so you can take a postcard picture of the Baie des Anges without even going onto the terrace. Your photos taken in the living room could also look like a colorful design for theatre interiors.

The Kitchen adjoins the living room, separated only by a bar, which is very convenient and gives you an opportunity to enjoy a gala dinner or a quick breakfast with spectacular views of the sailing yachts. Early birds can have their breakfast on the outdoor terrace with a gorgeous view and a fresh sea breeze. For those who love sitting with a glass of wine and chatting until morning there are plenty of different places inside and outside of the house, plus a wine rack.

Terrific! Views, pool, grounds

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful property for our family of eight (3 generations). Luxury villa with spectacular views, lovely grounds, heated pool. Quite secure in quiet upscale neighborhood. Very accommodating owner. Just a note- seniors, like me (72), should be aware that this is a hilly area so long walks were not for my wife and I, though all the others did well.

I must give a big shout out to the wonderful Uber drivers in this area. They were prompt, their vehicles spotless and top of the line (we used Uber Van) and they will go far afield. This was the best Uber service we have experienced anywhere.

All this made for a truly great holiday!

Wonderful stay at Villa Dracoena

  • 5 of 5

The Villa Dracoena from the beautiful era (Belle Epoque) is perfectly located in a very residential area, overlooking the mediterranean sea between Villefranche-sur-Mer and The Baie des Anges in Nice. It is closed to the historical center of Nice and the renowned "Promenade des Anglais".

The villa features 4 bedrooms with AC, 4 bathrooms recently renovated in marble, superbe indivudual terrasses with magnificient sea views. One of the terrasses located on the top roof is easily accessible by a beautiful staircase.

The property also features a heated pool surrounded by beautiful mediterranean plants and an orange tree garden.

Everything make your stay very enjoyable.

The historical center of Nice is easily accessible by foot or by bus (bus stop 2 blocks away). There is no need for a car. There is also a supermarket Carrefour nearby: very useful for everyday's shopping needs.

As many other people, I highly recommend this villa !

Erano anni che non andavo sulla costa azzurra e sono rimasta incantata per questa casa ....

La Villa Dracoena si trova a Nizza  sul Mont Boron, la zona  più residenziale della città. Siamo stati accolti da una coppia molto gentile che ha risposto a tutte le nostre domande e che ha tenuto pulita la casa durante il nostro soggiorno. La villa è molto elegante, arredata con gusto e tanto accogliente che ci si sente come a casa....ed  è PULITISSIMA!

Eravamo in 7  e siamo stati benissimo. Ogni camera ha il suo bagno (tutti rifatti da poco) e i nostri adolescenti hanno apprezzato la camera indipendente....

Abbiamo potuto prendere la nostra colazione la mattina e il café il pomeriggio sulle due terrazze della casa che hanno una vista stupenda sul mare e da dove si vede tutta la baia di Nizza!!

Avevamo una macchina molto grande ed era comodo poter parcheggiare a 100 metri dalla porta di casa nel posto riservato per la villa.

Comunque  anche senza macchina, ci sono autobus per il centro della città e per Monaco a 5 mn a piedi dalla casa. I nostri giovani hanno provato e hanno detto che era molto commodo!

Comodissimo anche il supermercato a 5 mn a piedi !!

La citta di Nizza ci è piaciuta molto, è stata tutta ristrutturata benissimo  e  ci si mangia anche bene! anche cucina italiana....... Abbiamo fatto delle belle passeggiate per andare a vedere" Ville franche" e" St Jean Cap Ferrat " due posti stupendi!!

Sono stata veramente benissimo in questa casa e non  vedo l'ora di tornare d'estate per godere  della  piscina riparata  dalla gente, e dove c'è il sole tutto il giorno.

Wonderful Villa

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful villa is a wonderful location for a family vacation. The views are spectacular, the home is charming and very comfortable. The house is well-situated near three bus lines with easy access to old Nice as well as surrounding hill towns. The on-site manager, Christian, is very helpful and easy to deal with. A lovely, enormous park on Mont-Baron is easy walking distance from the house. I recommend you hike up to the 16th century fort in the park, it's a fascinating excursion.
