Riviera Golf de Barbossi is a luxury private gated residential development totally unlike any other on this coast line. Estate agents say it is one of the best on the Riviera. Situated south of the A8 motorway, and below the hill of the Grand Duc, It is nearer the sea than the latters large development. A far cry from the rather crowded , cramped ,tourist developments of the coast road or riverside..The development has good security and in July and August has pool guards.

There is easy access to the A8 motorway thus avoiding the traffic of the coast road in high season- a real plus point.

Mandelieu La Napoule has grown from a small fishing village into a compact town with one main shopping street- the Ave de Frejus. It is one of the most attractive parts of the coast and suits all who wish to avoid mass tourism yet be close enough to visit all the main tourist attractions. in the region. The development is in the Minelle district of town which is classed as the best residential part.

Futher excellent out of town shopping can be found near the tiny private airport and at Les Tourades about 5 mins away direction Cannes La Bocca . Glitzy big sister Cannes adjoins Mandelieu La Napoule and is a short drive of 10 to15mins.

Most quality residental property is to the North side of the Avenue de Frejus.and this is where our property is situated. There are 2 large supermarkets; banks, a few small bistros and market place. The market is one of the most attractive in the area and on Wednesday has food and non- foods.

The port and commercial area are to the south of the Route de Frejus with the main railway line running behind the tourist blocks and then hugging the coastal road for most of the Riviera right through to italy. All beaches are free where as Cannes itself only has one small free beach. Nice City beach is pebbles, however it is well worth a visit to the Flower or antiques market :;theatre and galleries.

The area near La Napoule castle retains an old fashioned ,charm with little bistros set under plane trees and a Michelin star restaurant 'the Oasis'. A wonderful sheltered bay hides to the west of the castle which is very safe for swimming. Climb the coastal path to the hidden bay of La Rague or take your car.This is our favouite beach which is just beyond the marina. There are several good restaurants here.There are many beautiful small bays below the red rock cliffs for example Theoule which is minutes away.

The Esterel hills which stretch as far as St Raphael have many superb walks for cooler weather.

Catch the boat to the isle des Lerins from the port or down the coast to St tropez to appreciate this beautiful part of the coast. from the sea. Famous Mougins village with many superb restaurants is lttle more than 10mins away.

Art lovers are spoilt for choice of gallery with many famous impressionist painters having lived locally-Picasso;Renoir ;Matisse to name a few.This is the capital of the Mimosa so Spring is both beautiful and warm- a good time to visit all the museums.and the flower festivals.

Golf de Barbossi and apartments were built on the former practice polo fields of the Grand Duke Michel of Russia and is in a rare protected green belt.. The buildings are generously spaced out with landscaping and a backdrop of woodland and hills. It is hard to believe it is so near the coast. (approx 3 k) There are 3 swimming pools in the grounds for guests to use,but we feel the best is near this apartment.. Ample numbers of sun loungers surround each pool, There are small tables and umbrella stands also shower and w.c

The region is golfers heaven with approximately 20 courses within an hours drive. Mandelieu la Napoule has two. Barbossi designed in 1991 by Trent Jones- hilly with lakes and The Old Course which is flat with umbrella pines on the coast and the rivier Siagne. The latter even envolves crossing the river in a boat. Both club houses offer lunch.and a bar.It is not necessary to be a member to use all the facilities. The old course club house offers an especially good buffet lunch. A new luxury hotel is proposed near the Barbossi club house which may provide further dining facilities. A pass can be bought to play both courses. Check with the local tourist office near the market.

Ski resorts of Auron and Valberg can be reached within 1.h 30m also Greolieres les Neige for the less experienced.

The temperature at Mandelieu on the development is much higher than at Nice (weather station) This is due to the circle of hills giving shelter. Spring and Autumn temperatures can be suprisingly high with the possibility of sitting outside in December and early Spring. Autumn and Spring are perfect times for taking walks along the Rivier Siagne down to the coast..

Transport: The local railway station of Mandelieu La Napoule links at Cannes with the T.G.V. Park on the coast road and take the train from La Bocca station for a greater choice of trains along the coast and inland. This is the best way to relax , see the coast and go to the Monaco Grand Prix and Cannes film festival (May);

City parking is good and mainly underground

Menton lemon festival ,Nice Mardi Gras and Mandelieu Mimosa festival (are all in February .Travel by local bus anywhere in the Alps Maritime for 2 €, however these buses are not nearly as frequent as in England,they also stop at about 10p.m. There are no local buses on Sundays. Local tourist information centres have bus timetables for bus ,train and coach companies.they also have a list of reputable taxi firms.

Further activities: Mandelieu has tennis courts and riding school. At la Napoule there is a sailing school which teaches all ages,whilst Cannes la Bocca a short distance away has an indoor swimming pool, tennis courts and go cart racing. Bicycles may be rented locally. Click on "More details" Please look at our additional pricing information ,it is easily missed and could save you money.Payments are explained.

About Sylvia,Polly or Brian

We have owned this property since it was built and known the area since childhood..Coming from the North east of England the family all love our home in the sun. Now retired we have plenty of time to advise people on the best way to spend their holiday in Mandelieu.Our family run tour company has given us valuable insite into peoples needs and try at all times to be very competative with our price.We aim to please and are happy to provide you with more photographs and information . Please note these are copyright and therefore not to be reproduced in any other advertising. All our feedback from clients has been positive.Most people prefer to telephone us and discuss a booking as this gives confidence on both sides. We will reply from our private e mail how to save money on your booking ,also send additional photographs and booking form.

Why Sylvia,Polly or Brian chose Cannes - Grasse - Antibes

This property gives those who dislike mass tourism the chance to relax in a home from home situation. It is not overlooked by any other apartment and being east ,west and south facing captures every ray of sunshine. An exclusive address, peaceful and yet near enough to visit all the wonders of the Riviera. At the end of the day watch the wonderful sunset from the terrace.This apartment has probably one of the best positions on the development (according to the architect) Being a gated development it is very safe .Owners are either French or from Northern Europe. Many residents are permanent. We have charming neighbours.

Please check out our additional information below the prices as this could save you money on a booking.

What makes this apartment unique

This is an all the year round destination with a wonderful climate. In each month there is something to do and see. Life is never dull in this magic area of France. If you do not know the area we can help you plan visits to suit your interests. There are very few apartments like ours that have the benefit of an east west and southern aspect.

It is an advantage in this region NOT to be on the coastal road because of the high volume of traffic.Whilst the coast is undoubtably beautiful many hill villages are specatular and should not be missed.

The temperatures are usually 2 degrees higher

than Nice. It is normal to be able to swim in the sea in October comfortably. Some swim right up to Xmas.

Average high temperatures as given by 'world wide online' for Mandelieu La Napoule.However with recent world wide climate changes we are finding temeratures much higher than those given.

Wonderful location, tranquil scenario

  • 5 of 5

We are regular visitors to the South of France at varying resorts but have to say that our week at Maryland 2 provided the most tranquil and relaxing scenario of them all. We won't repeat all the comments provided by previous reviewers, it is however safe to say that they are all true, a wonderful location.

Unlike the other visitors we didn't hire a car, we preferred to walk for the shopping and use the bus for trips to the beach etc. Quite hilly in places, so distance walking won't be appropriate for everyone. We did eat a couple of times at the golf club, helpful staff and wonderful views. The swimming pool is ideal with plenty of sun loungers available.

Prior to the holiday visit we exchanged several e-mails with the owner who provided all the information we required. We were most appreciative, so handy to be able to converse directly with the person who knows it all. For those of us preferring to book private apartments around the world this should be a facility available to us all.

Lovely Apartment - Superb Views

  • 5 of 5

Apartment is excellent and so are views- I will write a bit about the Golf as I don't think it is mentioned enough.

We are a family of 4 and were looking to play a couple of rounds on holiday.

The Barbossi course is superb and the staff welcoming and friendly.

We bought a card of 6 rounds x 9holes for me and 12rounds of 9 for my son (15)

After 3 pm you can play as much as you want for no extra.

The cost for us both was just over £400 which Isn`t at all bad for what you get.

The club house was a 14 second drive from the main gates and my wife and daughter would often be having a drink on the club house veranda when we finished.

Everyone really enjoyed the holiday so much so we have already rebooked for 2016.

As 4 holes are visible from the apartment they always knew where we were and didn't feel we had disappeared for too long.

Excellent!

  • 5 of 5

If you want to go to the Cote D'Azur without all the mess you will find at Cannes or Monaco, Mandelieu-La Napoule really is a very good choice.

The town is lovely (you will fall in love with this place) and also the surroundings.

The apartment is beautiful: clean, nicely furnished, very comfortable, and itself has everything you could need (well stocked with towels, blankets, kitchen/bathroom supplies, etc). Blazing fast internet too!

It also has a lovely views of the Golf Course and, in the evening, of an extraordinary sunset. It is near the great pool and, if you play golf, not far from the first tee.

The owners were very kind and responsive to any requests we had. They provided a detailed account of the neighborhood and the location of all the amnenities a visitor might need. Thank you very much! We enjoyed every minute!

A lovely apartment in a beautiful situation.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is an ideal holiday retreat. Its situation is a delight, in a secure location, with a stunning outlook from the living room balcony towards the Tanneron to the north and the Esterel hills to the west – ideal walking country on your doorstep. Two good-sized bedrooms share a lovely balcony with a pleasant view towards the adjoining golf course. A balcony on both sides of the flat provides sunshine throughout the day. Furniture is tasteful and comfortable and the kitchen is very well-equipped. A car is essential and can be securely parked underground. Shops and other facilities are five minutes distant in nearby Mandelieu with hypermarket, baker, butcher and chemist. The delightful village of La Napoule is a journey of 10 minutes, with more shops, quality restaurants and lovely coastal walks. We rate this apartment very highly and hope very much to return.

Wonderful apartment with breathtaking views

  • 5 of 5

This was our first stay in the south of France and we had a wonderful week exploring. The apartment has two terraces, one with the sun in the morning and the other for the evening. The views from the evening terrace are wonderful, watching the sun go down over the mountains. The apartment itself is spacious and clean, with a well equipped kitchen and comfortable living room. There is plenty of storage and the air con in the bedrooms was also appreciated. We also enjoyed having the internet and English TV on the day it rained. The supermarket is just 5 minutes drive away and there are three pools onsite to choose from. Highly recommended.
