About Alex Timmermans

Unfortunately we only can be in Mougins for a limited number of weeks per year. To keep the property perfectly in shape, we decided to rent it out.

Alex Timmermans purchased this villa in 2002

Why Alex Timmermans chose Mougins

After having seen many, many villas, we fell in love with 'La Salamandre' at first sight. And after quite some years now, it is still our paradise.

What makes this villa unique

During our busy professional lives, we don't always have enough time to spend with friends. For us, La Salamandre with all its inviting terraces offers the perfect possibility to catch up.

Golf heaven in Mougins

  • 5 of 5

We were with a group of 8 serious golf players and rented La Salamandre. We visited 4 stunning golf courses near Mougins. One of the best is just 1 km from the villa.

It was a great experience. We had a warm welcome by caretakers Mrs and Mr Arnold. We immediately felt at home in the atmosphere of the place. The villa is spacious. We cooked our own meals in the well equipped and cozy kitchen. The garden is beautiful and big with different terraces to chill. We used the pool heating because when we were there the temperature dropped at night. It was the best villa renting experience we ever had so we certainly will be back! There are 7 other golf courses nearby that we did not visit yet. Thanks!

Super house, great location

  • 5 of 5

Very enjoyable stay at La salamandre. Great house for adults and kids, with the heated pool being a fantastic temperature and popular with the other two littluns.

The location, in Mougins (fantastic eateries) and Cannes/Antibes (15 min drive) nearby was what we needed.

Alex was very easy to deal with. Many thanks! Mark and family.

Well appointed house downstairs and lovely pool.

  • 4 of 5

Two of the bedrooms are very small but not in them much. It is shame the pool had to have a fence around it when we arrived. But without the fence it was one of the best we have used.

Owner's Response: We are very strict in putting the fence around the pool when there are small children. Besides, it's the French law.

Lovely Villa for a big Family celebration !

  • 5 of 5

We had a great celebration week in June with 6 adults and 5 children ( 1-9Y ). The House is beautiful and very well situated in a quiet area, with a huge garden where children can play and explore.

The lovely Pool is big and fresh ( saltwater ) and of course the centre of activities. All though we did play table tennis, badminton, and football ( France Euro2016 ). Even a game of pool one afternoon when it rained. The rest of the week was sunny and in the end hot. Thanks for AC in the bedrooms.

The Kitchen is well equipped and we used the new Barbecue Grill more or less every evening for our family dinner on the patio with nice view.

Bedooms & Bathrooms are very fresh.

We can very much recommend the Villa Salamandre , and both Alex & the Arnolds are very easy and supportive.

We hope to come back some day. Many Thanks from Sweden :-)

Cosy in the winter time too

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely wintry stay in La Salamandre with our two kids (10 and 5) and one grandparent. The house is very cosy when inside (this was often for us as our stay was during a very rainy February week) with games and an open fire. But once the sun comes out, it is close to the seaside for sunny wintry walks in Cannes or Mougins, or just to play football and table tennis in the garden. It felt like a home from home and we hope to come again in the spring/summer.

Great spacious house with a lovely big garden with a nice pool. We stayed here with our family of 7. The people that welcomed us were very nice and the house was very comfortable. We certainly want to go back to this house!

Mougins is without doubt one of the most wonderful places to visit on the Côte d'Azur. Only 15 minutes from Cannes, this superb medieval village is set amongst pines, olives and Cyprus trees. Surrounded by forests (the Valmasque forest covers 427 hectares) Mougins has kept the quality of its environment intact, and offers visitors, from the height of 260 metres, a panoramic view of the 'baie de Cannes', the Lérins islands, Grasse and the 'Préalpes'.

As soon as you arrive in the village, you will be seduced by the charm of the narrow roads, bordered by colourful flowers and superb ancient houses. Picturesque door-ways with each stone carefully restored, beautifully designed window-frames... there's a delightful detail everywhere you look!

With the imprint of the past subtly conserved, the harmony of the colours and quality of light has seduced many artists and celebrities who have chosen to stay in Mougins, including Picasso (who spent the last 15 years of his life here).

Golf: There are many golf courses in and around Mougins. One of the prestigious golf courses of France (Royal Mougins) is located one kilometre from La Salamandre.
