Early summer sun

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic week (too short) at Villa Irene with my friends and teenage son at the start of summer 2008. The villa is bright, sunny and modern, the upper floor bedrooms and full length balcony giving great views and a feeling of proximity to the med. We walked to the small pretty beach nearby most days but there is a larger beach at Agay a short drive or 40 minute walk away if you prefer it to be livlier. There are a few local restaurants but “Matuzia”, with its Moroccan/French food and relaxed atmosphere was easily our favourite. The setting of the villa provided a range of activities from easy hiking and mountain biking in the Esterel National forest, golf and tennis at Vallescure to shopping and dining in Cannes.

Katie and her team were very helpful and accommodating and we will be hopefully returning for another visit in the near future.

summer 2016

  • 5 of 5

Excellent stay for families. This is not modern (at least 20 years) hous with unusual and attracive architecture, very specific detail - instead of dull and boring plastic windows here you will find classic wooden window frames. The hous is full of modern equipment: kitchen is compleet and clean, air conditioning in all rooms sufficient, wifi of good power (online games on several dievices and movie sumultaneosly). Indoor and outside spaces are vell prepared for all kinds of activites, from lasy meal to active games in swimming pool or ground, theare are even a place for pétanque with compleet set of balls. Privacy is exceptional: the street is a branch of costal road to the sea, there are only few hoses on the street, two of which are empty, street ends a private rocky bay with exceptional conditions for snorkeling. In the back of the place is Esterel reserve, where we met (15 minutes driving) the family of wild boar and two foxes, our chidren regulary fed them with delight. Thanks to owner and to maintanence team!

Great place for family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic 2 weeks' vacation at Villa Irene with our friends - we were 7 people - 4 adults and 3 kids (9-15 yrs. old). My older son joined us with his girlfriend for the first week in the studio – perfect arrangement. Villa Irene is seating 40 meters from the sea (1 min walk, semi-private rock), and 150 m from a beach. The bedrooms are great, all of them facing the sea and have a balcony with a great view. The house is modern, have a lot of space, the kitchen is well-equipped with all-you-need, the bathrooms are really state of the art, high-speed internet, and the pool is very nice. The location is unbeatable - Antheor is a perfect place for vacation - you can have a rest , go to day trips in Provence, or enjoy the nearby cities (Cannes, Nice, and Saint Raphael) for shopping and culture. You can use a car, or the train - which is 7 min walk for the Villa. At Agay beach - 5 min drive- we enjoyed water sports such as wind surfing. Pierre-Jean is the local manager and he is very nice and very cooperative.

The only criticism –While all bedrooms have air-conditioning - the studio is without air-conditioning, and we were not aware that this is the case. It is not in the description in the HomeAway site.

In summary - we recommend on Villa Irene without hesitations, and hopefully returning for another visit in the future.

Wonderful villa with beautiful sea view

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful week at this villa in July. The villa was well equipped and in a great location, a stroll to the beach. The villa manager was a pleasure to meet.

Highly recommended.

Villa Irene

  • 5 of 5

Villa Irene, Thank you!

Had an absolutely fabulous holiday, weather was gorgeous and accommodation was definitely top notch. Plently of living space, fantastic views from the bedrooms and the bathrooms were very luxurious couldn't ask for anything better. The villa was very well kept, very clean and the outside area was lovely. It was great having BBQ's with the family and the kids enjoying the pool. The villa is a stone's throw away from the beach which was very handy and just a sort 20 minute journey to Agay.

Will definitely be back! thank you :)

Villa Irene antheor

  • 5 of 5

Myself and family visited villa Irene in may 2011.

The villa is well maintained and very clean.

There is a great view of the bay from the bedrooms and balcony.

A visit to Cannes film festival was only 45 mins away.Beautiful beach and resteraunts

A day trip to monte Carlo casino was 2 hrs away and an amazing experience.

The pool at the villa was great during the day as it got pretty hot .great view over the bay from the decked/pool area.

Antheor beach 2 min walk away is sandy and safe.

Overall a great holiday and hope to return in the near future.

The villa is located very close to the sea with the dramatic Parc National de l'Esterel as a backdrop. It is situated on the main coast road between Cannes and St Tropez. The sandy beach of Antheor is a couple of minutes walk where there is also a campsite with a shop, restaurant and snack bar. There are a couple of other restaurants within walking distance of the villa and the village of Agay with it's lovely stretch of sandy beach is a few minutes drive. Here there are shops, several restaurants and a market on a Wednesday morning. For those looking for something more lively the bustling resort town of St Raphael is only twenty minutes drive where you can also do boat trips, water sports, just admire the super yachts or shop in the evening markets.

There are buses that run along the coast road between St Raphael and Cannes and the train station is less that ten minutes walk and the trains run from St Raphael to the Italian border.
