About the Manager

Your time off is precious. So when you go away, why not make an occasion of it and book somewhere a bit… different?

At Oliver’s Travels we don’t do ordinary. But if you’re looking to rent somewhere quirky, unique and bursting with more character than a bottle of ’59 Lafite Rothschild, we’ve got some stunning luxury villas for you to choose from.

Fancy a romantic weekend for two in a lighthouse, a week away in a converted windmill, or a fortnight relaxing with friends in the grounds of a French chateau?

We�������ve got them all here at Oliver’s Travels. Each one of our properties is handpicked by our team to guarantee you a truly memorable luxury villa holiday. By booking direct with the owner from around £40 per person per night, you can experience luxury without burning a hole in your pocket.

Where did it all start?

In 2003, my best mate Ravi and I spent a week at Chateau de Cardou in the Dordogne with a group of our closest friends. It was one of those holidays you never forget. The chateau was stunning, the wine was flowing and the weather was pretty much perfect. Best of all, we had the whole place to ourselves.

As it turns out, that holiday was the start of something pretty special. Before we’d even got back to England, Ravi and I had come up with the basic idea for our first business, Simply Chateau: a website where people could find and book exclusive, luxury villas without having to shell out a fortune.

Location

From the Owner

Where are we today? We’ve grown a bit since then. We’ve now got a team of people who love travelling just as much as we do. Between us, we’ve handpicked every one of the properties you’ll find on the site. Our emphasis is still on quirky, lavish, one-of-a-kind places to stay, but we now offer villas, castles, stately homes, beach huts and cottages, as well as chateaux – not just in France, but across Europe and the Caribbean. You may have noticed we’ve changed our name too. Ravi took a bit of persuading, but in the end we agreed on Oliver��s Travels!

Villa Franche is situated between Monaco (Monte Carlo) and Nice. This is considered the best part of the Cote d'Azur.

Cap Ferrat and Beaulieu are both a mere 3 minute drive away. The train station is only 100 meters away, with the train travelling all along the coast to Italy or back to Cannes and Marseilles.

Its South facing direction ensures it gets the sun all day, and the location is perfect. Only a 4 minute walk to the port of Villefranche (with no need to cross any roads). 130 metres from the beach and the train is nearby which is 2 stops from Nice and 6 stops to Monte Carlo.

- Nice international airport is 8 Miles away.

- There is a garage with room for one car, and there is ample free parking outside the apartment.

Guide to the Cote d'Azur, Cap Ferrat and Villefranche-sur-Mer

The Cote d'Azur is the area of south-east France that runs along the coast from Bandol, west of Toulon, to Menton and the Italian border in the east. Part of the coast is also known as the French Riviera. The Cote d'Azur therefore includes the southern edges of the Var and Riviera departments. The Mediterranean coast (Cote d'Azur / Riviera) of south-east France includes such renowned resorts as Nice, Antibes, Saint-Tropez and Cannes. Rich, exclusive and sophisticated.

The coastline here is very beautiful and the weather is more consistently sunny than any other part of France (corsica excepted). There are many small villages and towns along the coast and slightly inland where you will want to stop and explore.

Cap Ferrat is a peninsula into the Mediterranean just south of Villefranche-sur-Mer. Most of the peninsula is home to the very wealthy. Apart from walking along the (very beautiful) coast from St-Jean-Cap-Ferrat, there are a couple of other reasons why you should visit. The first is the zoo and extensive parkland surrounding Les Cedres, the original villa to be built on the island (by King Leopold II)

The second is the Musee Ephrussi de Rothschild. Stunning even among the other villas in the area, the Villa of Beatrice Ephrussi de Rothschild (the 'Villa Ile de France') was built in the early part of the 20th century.

Both outside in the meticulously maintained gardens (separated into several parts, each with a different theme), and in the lavish interior of the villa, there are plenty of 'oooh' and 'aaah' moments as you come across yet more extraordinary items of art, furniture etc.

Villefranche-sur-Mer is in the Alpes-Maritimes department of the Cote d'Azur, close to the French border with Italy and 5 km from Nice.

The town is built on terraces up the hill that overlooks the azure blue sea and beautiful bay of the Mediterranean below. The town has been occupied since roman times, and there are some older buildings to be seen - you can't miss the 16th century citadel, the large walled building next to the water below the old town that is now home to a number of museums.

The big attraction in Villefranche-sur-Mer - seaside, harbour and beach apart - is the attractive old town with beautiful ancient houses lining the steep cobbled streets that wind up through the town.

One interesting feature that reminds you that you are in an ancient town - the streets that run along the hill (rather than up and down) pass through arches under the houses, creating a great atmosphere - the best known is called Rue Obscura.

There are also a couple of churches of interest eg Chapel Saint Pierre, featuring decoration by Cocteau, in the Villefranche-sur-Mer old town, before you ascend to the Mont Alban Fort for great views out across the sea and along the coast.

Perhaps equally interesting are the villas and 'palaces' of the rich and famous tucked away in the hills around the town.
