About Austin Hutchison

British / Danish couple with 2 boys. Based in Denmark where we run 4 companies we own. Travel frequently and have decided to rent our retreat out this summer as we are travelling RTW for 2 months. I grew up in Dubai, went to University in the UK where I met my wife and been happily married the last 25 years.

Austin Hutchison purchased this villa in 2010

Why Austin Hutchison chose Esterel - Fayence

Quite simply it was the view - the moment we walked in it was an instant decision to buy it. We have very often been to the cote d'azur and paid for renting properties and I felt it was time to purchase one instead. It is our intention to wind up the business's in DK in the next few year, sell up and spend more time in that part of the world. Great weather, great restaurants and fantastic golf courses - stunning views, excellent medical facilities in France, and access to the rest of the world from Nice Airport 30 minutes drive away.

What makes this villa unique

The stunning views from most of the southern face of the property. The outdoor lounge we have on the main floor, the entry. The fact that the house was located in a closed CCTV monitored gated community was a big plus in terms of security. The pool area, where we totally renovated last year, installed a fully functional and large out door kitchen with Gas Barbecue and hot plate. We also extended the terrace in teak an additional 70 m².

Exceptional! 5/5 -

Wonderful property with amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at Austin's house and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It was a perfect base to explore the French Riviera.

The house has all the modern facilities you would expect from a luxury holiday home. It is set on 3 levels and each of our family had their own favourite place to find peace and quiet, though it was a bit of a rush to get to the "Day Bed" first. We spent a lot of our time on the deck and also on the balcony. The pool allowed us to cool off during the heat of the day and then relax in the peace and quiet of the hills.

Every room and every seat is built around the magnificent view over Cannes and you can't help but be in awe every time you look.

This is one of those places that you will never forget!

My husband and I were lucky enough to have this wonderful home to ourselves for the week. From the moment we arrived and escaped the crowds we were able to just sit back, enjoy the view and truly feel on holiday.

The house is well equipped with TV, Sky etc but the most important thing it offers it the most wonderful views over the bay of Cannes and absolute tranquility, it was a true sanctuary away from the August crowds.

The outside eating and relaxing areas and a leisurely dip in the pool were perfect and having stocked up at the easy to reach supermarket we were able to cook and relax over lazy dinners outdoors. Assuming you have a car there’s plenty to see and do within 30 minutes drive should you feel the need to tear yourselves away from the view.

We have rented several places in the last few years and Austin was great to deal with. Everything was exactly as described and he was always available for questions as was the lovely welcoming Isabelle.

What an amazing place!

  • 5 of 5

You know how sometimes, you see the brochure pictures, but are then let down when you arrive, well the opposite happens here. Whilst the house photos are accurate, it's position just does not translate. By day the bay is stunning, and by night it is transformed into a dancing show of lights.

We were a family of four with two teenage children and we all enjoyed the houses ample facilities. Our welcome from the lovely Isabelle was first class, as was the chilled bottle of rose provided by the owner.

We have been renting houses for nearly 20 years, and this was the best so far.

I defy you not to have the best time here.

Stunning house, can't wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

Austin the owner was so helpful from start to finish, and in between when we had yet more questions! Always a prompt reply and extremely useful information provided before the holiday. The house is simply stunning and the views are better than the pictures! cannot fault the house, the amenities and we would love to return next year. You need a car for sure, and there is a supermarket nearby and Cannes is only a 25 minute drive along the scenic coastal road. If I could give it 6 stars I would, absolutely loved our time here. thanks Austin!

simply stunningly beautiful

  • 5 of 5

We have spend our honeymoon in that wonderful house last year and we´ve enjoyed every second. There´re so many lovely places on the premises, we just had to decide which we liked best.. Taken by itself, the sea- and "Cannes-view" is just invaluable but in coupled with the terraces, the pool, the caring and absolutely extraordinary interior (inside and outside the house..) and the whole environment(....) you just think you might have died and revived in heaven:-) You will be missing nothing on earth at that place. Everything including mailing with Austin and the locally administration went perfect and everybody was just very nice, attentive and uncomplicated. We would love to come back again! Thank you and be sheltered! Rebecka and Ralf from Germany

Perfect area and nice view over the bay of cannes

  • 5 of 5

My friends, my girlfriend and me spent 1 week in this fabulous Villa. The Villa is located in a private area in the mountains near Mandelieu and Cannes. We enjoyed the spectacular view of the sea and the mountains. The villa itself is comfortable, airy and well equipped. (stereo system, TV, dvd player, Wi-Fi, hairdryer, washing machine, dishwasher, iron etc.).

The Pool area with his perfect view is perfect for relaxing and chilling out. The kitchen in the house and the outdoor kitchen is well equipped.

Everything is to 100% like the photos and the description it shows. And there is anything what you need and you couldn´t find it, Jean Claude (the park Manager) does everything that you feel comfortable. He is really a smart and friendly guy, it was nice to meeting him.

The same is to say about Austin Hutchison the owner of the Villa. He is also a very friendly guy.

We want to say thank you for the perfect week and the uncomplicated handling with booking. We can recommend the villa and it´s a beautiful area to spent time. But don´t forget, without a car its very hard to visit, to explore and to shop in the area around Cannes.

So we say it again, we recommend the villa and it gets 5 stars.
