About the property

Villa in Roquefort les Pins, near Valbonne and Opio, Cote d'Azur, France - Peaceful Location, 10 Minutes From Valbonne

Villa Rocambole is so much more than a holiday rental, this is a family home with quality fixtures and fittings. Our home was completley renovated in the first half of 2013 to a very high standard. It is the ideal location to sit back and unwind. The villa has extensive gardens and magnificent mountain views. It is located in a residential domaine 10 minutes walk from the village. There is a local supermarket, butcher, vegetable shop, baker and bank in the village and a weekly market. The villa is well furnished and spacious. The villages of Valbonne and Mougins are 10/15 mins drive. Friday morning markets in Valbonne are not to be missed if you would like a taste of Provencal living, Mougins on the other hand has a wonderful choice of restaurants and art galleries.

About Lorraine Prendergast

I have lived here at Villa Rocambole for the past 20 years. During the last year the villa has been entirely renovated. This year the swimming pool has had a facelift both inside and out. The garage has also been converted in order to give us a fourth bedroom and bathroom ensuite.

Inititally, I chose the villa because of the stunning mountain views and the tranquil location. The property is in a lovely domaine and I am lucky to have wonderful neighbours. The village of Roquefort Les Pins has grown in the last 20 years and most amenities can be found on your doorstep.

We supply Ralph Lauren sheets/towels and The White Company sheets/towels as well as Descamps.

Please provide a phone number as my initial contact will be by phone.

Lorraine Prendergast purchased this villa in 1994

Why Lorraine Prendergast chose Roquefort-les-Pins

The village is a 10 minute walk away. There is a local supermarket, bakery, bank, butchers and vegetable shop. There is a super little café called the Cappucino in the centre of the village where we like to have a coffee on a Sunday morning and chat with the locals. The villages of Valbonne and Mougins are 10/15 minute drive. Friday morning markets in Valbonne are not to be missed if you would like a taste of Provencal living. This is a well furnished Provencal villa with a tower. The villa can sleep 8 people comfortably. There is a mezzanine area above the living/dining room where there is an office. The swimming pool has an alarm. There are plenty of sun loungers for relaxing and a Weber barbecue.

Nice airport is 20 minutes away by car.

What makes this villa unique

Our heated saline swimming pool is your perfect relaxation area. The villa has a table tennis table - Sky satellite TV - large flat screen TV, Wii - lots of DVDs for very hot afternoons.

The extensive gardens are maintained weekly and there is an automatic watering system taking care of the many shrubs, trees and flowers.

Downstairs, we have a separate TV room for both adults and children.

Superb villa

  • 5 of 5

We spent a perfect, relaxing week at this lovely villa. It is beautifully furnished and very well equipped with everything possible provided for a luxury stay. The view is superb and the swimming pool is very clean and a lovely area to relax and unwind with comfortable sun loungers and parasols. The location is perfect within easy walking distance of the town and all the restaurants, shops and facilities it offers and within easy driving distance of the surrounding villages, Cannes Nices and beautiful beaches. The owners were very friendly and very helpful. We would not hesitate to recommend this villa to anyone and would love to return.

Beautiful villa in Tranquil paradise

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the villa for a long weekend recently.

The setting is idyllic - superb house on lush grounds with panoramic views on the Alpine mountains. We woke every morning to the sound of birds singing and the sweet scent of flowers.... The house is very well appointed with plenty of space for a family or group of friends. the location is quiet so if you are looking for some peace, this is the place for you....There is every modern luxury you could wish for including excellent Wi-Fi coverage. There are lots of great villages to drive to for markets, food and site seeing. Cannes and Nice are short drives away. Will definitely be returning so this special spot.

The photographs don't do it justice. Superbly equipped and finished, a luxury home. Fantastic spotlessly clean swimming pool and stunning garden. Quiet residential area within walking distance of village.

Will definitely return next year. Would recommend without hesitation.

Perfect holiday villa

  • 5 of 5

A fabulous villa, tasteful, comfortable and extremely well equipped. In a beautiful, quiet location but within easy reach of attractive towns, countryside and coast. The Pool and outside area were super for relaxing in the sun, gazing at the wonderful view.
