Lovely friendly family villa.

Cracking location close to the main areas but secluded enough for peace & quiet

The villa really suited our requirements and we will visit again sometime soon.

Peaceful Gezanne

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from 2 weeks in Gezanne. A wonderful villa in a wonderful location. We enjoyed the warm pool and beautiful garden and were well looked after by Marian and Brianne. As we enjoy cooking, we liked the large well equipped kitchen and nearby terrace for eating. A most enjoyable and relaxing holiday.

Perfect for a family 'get-away'

  • 4 of 5

4 generations of our family stayed in this versatile well appointed villa. It suited everyone's needs. The adults could relax knowing the children were safe in the secure garden ( perfect for hide and seek) and with the fenced pool. There were plenty of books and games for all ages, so no need to pack your own. Close to the local supermarket and beautiful town of Biot. The med was visible from the terrace, where many a happy breakfast, lunch and dinner were spent. Thanks to Marian and Briane for making us so welcome.

Gorgeous house with amazing views and lots of spac

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a great week late August with our two young children (Age 2 & 4). The nearby village of Biot is perfect, and just a short drive away with plenty of restaurants, a few bars and small shops. It didn't feel touristy but a quaint local village. Antibes offers a lovely day trip too. The size of the villa is impressive and the outdoor space is perfect with a lovely shady terrace off of the living room with plenty of seating. The owners are very warm and welcoming. Booking was easy and all of our questions and needs were answered really quickly. Its safe for children as the pool areas is flat and there is a pool alarm and fence if you wish.

A Nice place for your holiday

Ideally located midways between Biot and Valbonne, Villa Gezanne is perfect for trips to the coast or the mountains. But in fact there is no need to leave the place, it has a lovely , spacious garden and a large, heated pool to comfort you in your lazy , off duty days.Highly recommendable.

Holiday at Villa Gezanne

  • 5 of 5

With superb directions we found Villa Gezanne very easily. We were met by Marian who gave us a warm welcome and was extremely friendly. The Villa is very homely and comfortable. It worked extremely well with three adults and six 18-20 year olds. The pool is superb and we had no guilty feelings about sitting around it all day. The table tennis proved a great hit with all. There is an excellent Carrefour 4 mins away which stocks everything you could want for a self-catering holiday.

The villa is lovely and full of character. There are many combinations of sleeping arrangements and all bedrooms are extremely comfortable. Dinner on the terrace was always enjoyable. There is an excellent BBQ and a well equipped kitchen. Marian and Briane were always available should any problem arise.

The location is mid way between Biot and Valbonne both are lovely small towns with excellent restaurants, markets and lots to do and see. Easy driving to Antibes, Nice airport etc.

We had a brilliant two weeks thoroughly enjoyed by all. We hope to return again sometime soon. Thank you!

From the Owner

Gezanne recently came up for sale and we were fortunate to become the new owners. Much to our delight, the previous owners - Marian and her daughter Briane, who had welcomed us so warmly to the property for many years, agreed to continue to greet guests to Gezanne and look after the property. Their local knowledge, kindness and enthusiasm has been wonderful for us and other guests over the years. We were drawn to Gezanne because of the house's character, spacious garden, sizeable pool, pleasant views and its great location - in a quiet secluded area but just a not far from the beach, the village of Biot and Antibes. Gezanne is a great base to explore the Riviera and the Alpes Maritimes and each year we find more and more interesting places to see and things to do.”
