About the property

Modern, nicely decorated,4 bedroom (sleeps 9) villa near beach and national park

Elegant and very comfortable holiday villa located on the most beautiful coastline on the French Riviera. The villa, Le Paradis, enjoys a spectacular view over the red Esterel mountains, the bay and the sea from all windows. The pool is just a step outside the tastefully furnished living room/dining room which also opens up to a large balcony. The house offers a modern, American style kitchen with appliances including dishwasher, as well as a laundry room with washer/dryer, flat screen TV, barbecue, CD-player, outside dining area by the pool, lounge chairs and pool alarm. There are four bedrooms (with the same spectacular view), one with en-suite bathroom and two with bathroom outside the bedroom door. The swimming pool can be heated at extra cost.

If you are looking for a breathtaking view, comfort, stylish deco and beautiful pool area - this is the place for you!

Exceptional Golf Opportunities: This area provides exceptional golf just 10 minutes from the villa. Two 18-hole courses, two 9-hole courses and a golf academy make this ideal for all standards. Golf de Valescure, built in 1895, is the Var's oldest course (5th oldest in France!) A traditional 'British-style' course of 5 061 meters and par 68, this course hosts many amateur and pro-am events. Golf Esterel is an international course designed by the American Robert Trent-Jones (senior). It is 5 921 meters, par 71, built in 1989 and has hosted 2 professional European events.

Leaving the pool deck and ready for activities?: The sandy beaches of Anthéor are only a couple of minutes walk away. Same goes for the small shop, two restaurants and a snack bar. There are a couple of other restaurants within walking distance of the villa and in the village of Agay with it's lovely stretch of sandy beach (a few minutes drive), you'll find shops, many good restaurants and the local market on Wednesday mornings.

If you enjoy sports, Agay also offers tennis and water-based sports (sailing, swimming, water skiing, wake boarding, diving etc.). Walking/biking or horseback riding can also be done locally in the scenic Esterel Mountains.

If you prefer a bit of culture why not go visit the castle Château de La Napoule in La Napoule. The castle foundation welcomes qualified artists in all fields to its residency program in which exhibitions, readings, concerts, performances, seminars and conferences are held throughout the year.

What makes this villa unique

We found the most spectacular and beautiful spot we had ever seen in France and the land was for sale. We just could not let it go! After a couple of years our dream house was a reality. If you get the chance to sit on the balcony or up on the top lounge terrace when the mountains turn burgundy red from the descending sun - you'll understand how we felt. This is a unique setting even for the French Riviera!

Fantastic view, relaxing and close to the sea!

  • 5 of 5

We just had to go back again and we rent the house for the second time this summer. Its location is perfect, a few minutes walk to the sea and mountains, 10 minutes by car to shops and 20 minutes by car to St Raphael and the boats to St Tropez etc. Our teenagers could come and go with the trains, the station is just next door. With a stunning view from the terrace we relaxed and enjoyed to prepare the french cuisine and having our meals together by the pool. Very nice house! We'll be back.

La Vie en Provence rose

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful week that we will remember forever. The sea was so close that we swam in it every day and before breakfast on most even at the end of September. Le Paradis is a delightful house in a superb position with responsive hosts. Don't be put off by the railway: you don't notice it and it gives you access to so many places along the coast. Don't miss out on walking in the Massif de l'Esterel and just immerse yourselves in the wonderful Provencale lifestyle.

Paradise !!

  • 5 of 5

We spent some fantastic days in this house. The view was fantastic as well as the surroundings. A 3 minutes’ walk to the beach made it possible to go for a swim, early in the morning in the lovely Mediterranean.

The swimming pool and house were of high standard and a more suitable name of the house than ”Paradise” is hard to choose.

It IS paradise! A spectacular setting!

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic house in the most amazing setting. The house is completely fitted with everything you might need to have a memorable time. The view from both the house and pool canopy is unforgettable. The owners are helpful and kind which makes all the difference. We highly recommend to all. Thanks Thomas and Louise, your place is exactly what we thought and then some. Marian and Carlos from California.

C'est magnifique!

  • 5 of 5

Awesome house with a spectacular view, great area, relaxing atmosphere - nothing else can be expected from a vacation.

The house and the area can really be recommended to both adults and children. Our group consisted of 4 adults and 5 teenagers: all of us really enjoyed from the bottom of the heart. The house is big enough to give some privacy if needed, but at the same time it provided a possibility to really gather together and join for e.g. a dinner. The pool area is fantastic. There is also a nice hut with sofas: the pool and the bay area can be seen while lying on the sofa and enjoying the warmth of Riviera under the shelter.

Although a car is kind of compulsory (for groceries), there is also an easy opportunity to utilize public transportation. Just behind the house is a railway station: a train can be easily taken to Nice, Monaco or even Marseille or Ventimiglia (Italy)

The owner is helpful and really wants to make sure that the vacation will be unforgettable.

We really recommend Le Paradis to everyone!
