About Simon Hodgkinson

Hello. We are a British couple living partially in France and partially in the UK. Simon's family with 2 children (and dog) lived for several years in the villa.

Simon Hodgkinson purchased this villa in 2007

Why Simon Hodgkinson chose Biot

We love the quietness of Chemin du Baou and how we are surrounded by trees. Biot is a beautiful medieval village with lots of charm and many good restaurants. We are a short hop from Antibes, Valbonne and Nice airport.

What makes this villa unique

The swimming pool is marvelous with its brick igloo which you reach via a little tunnel.

The house is very special. There are no box rooms. All the rooms are individual, and the living room and kitchen are spectacular.

Great Villa, very private, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

From our initial enquiry through to arriving in France both Simon the owner and his local agent Gerry organised, accommodated and met all of our requirements. Taxi's collected us on time and Gerry in particular kindly gave us a lift in to nearby Antibes to collect our hire car. The Villa was perfect for our family holiday with 5 good sized bedrooms, all with their own en suite facilities all with private balconies if you needed your own space. The pool is excellent, large, very clean with a maintenance team visiting weekly. Located in a very private setting, 5 minute drive outside Biot, this spacious modern Villa has everything.

You will need a car as the walk into Biot is not easy and often without footpaths with steep climbs. A car makes it very easy to visit Monoca 45 min, Cannes 25 mins, Antibes 10 mins, Nice 30 mins. Biot itself is a beautiful Medieval Town with a pedestrianised centre with a good range of shops, museums, restaurants and bars. We finished our days eating in Biot's restaurants enjoying the typical French way of life each evening. One down side to Biot, because it is popular with both locals and tourists is that parking can be an issue. Allow extra time, and be prepared for a steep walk into town, but don't let that put you off!

We had a fantastic 1 week holiday and only scratched the surface visiting this beautiful part of the world. We are already planning next years trip!

I would not hesitate recommending staying in this Villa, you will not be disappointed.

Great Villa, Great location, Great parking (even for low cars)

  • 5 of 5

Myself and friends embarked on a road trip around Europe, we needed a villa with enough parking and close to all the places we wanted to visit (Saint Tropez, Monaco, Cannes etc)

We had 4 cars with us but you could easily park 6/7 on the villa's property.

Villa has a great modern styling but with home comforts, pool is lovely with a swim in igloo - The name suddenly made sense while swimming!

Pictures don't give the villa justice on how nice it is.

I would highly recommend walking into the local town Biot for food, the people, service & atmosphere is great. If you have any issues with anything you can give Gerry or Mike a call - very friendly British people so communication was no issue.

Would love to come back again!

The closest beach is approx 5km away. The beaches at Antibes are 8km away (these are safe for children to swim and have water activities).


We are 30 minutes from Nice AirPort and 10 minutes from Antibes Station. To use public transport take the train from Nice Saint Augustine station (10 min walk) to Biot or 'Envibus 10' to Biot. Envibus 10 goes also to Antibes station, and with the rail network makes it possible visit the region without a car, so long as you don't mind walking a little. Google Envibus ligne 10.


Biot village is a 15 minute walk away, partly uphill. Valbonne and Antibes are a 10 minute drive.

Further Details:

Biot has a wealth of excellent restaurants, as do Mougins, Valbonne, Vence, and Antibes, all just a few minutes away by car.
