About the Owner

We bought the villa when our 3 children were young and wanted somewhere that would be safe for children - and fun. Which is what it's been for the past 14 years, with many families enjoying the villa and surrounding area with us. We have attempted to drink the Cote d'Azur dry of Chateau Minuty; swam, sunbathed, played tennis, golf, skiied, waterskied, cycled, seen the sights, eaten our body weight in Moules Mariniere and had a bucketload of fun.

Simply Superb!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! Amazing villa that offers everything you could ever need! Beautiful grounds, great owners (we met them as we took over from their summer holiday), great pool, trampoline, table tennis table for kids. We had 3 families there and we all had a ball. The management team arranged for daily cleaners to come and add some luxury for the 3 mums that wanted a week off from emptying the dishwasher (it was our holiday too). Great Bbq area with bar and funky lights! Best villa anywhere in Europe that we have ever rented (and we have rented a lot!).

Can't wait to go back in August this year!

Fabulous Villa Jipe

  • 5 of 5

Villa Jipe is my favourite holiday destination - ever !! We've been five times now and would return tomorrow if we could. We've been with friends, with lots of family, with small groups and just as a couple enjoying the luxury of space and the most heavenly house in Antibes, we've never felt cramped, even with 14 of us there at the same time. We love the pool, the grandchildren are in straight after breakfast, it's difficult to get them out for meals !! The Villa is very beautiful and very well appointed, everything does what it's supposed to do. Whenever we have arrived the Villa has always been immaculately presented, spotlessly clean with plenty of clean linen and towels. The Villa's location is perfect, close to the beach and grocery shops but also private and quiet behind secure electric gates. We can't wait to go back and we would recommend it to anyone - just leave a week or two free for us.

From the Owner

It had huge potential for refurbishment and now with the new outdoor terrace and bar, we've achieved a large part of our original intention of renovating the property. We will always enjoy sitting on our top terrace and enjoying the sea views back towards Nice. We love being able to walk to Garoupe Beach and enjoy lunch or dinner there.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Beach : Garoupe at 0.5 Kilometres Car: not necessary


Garoupe beach is 5 minutes walk away which features the famed Keller Plage restaurant. There are several restaurants and private beach areas with sunbeds. There is also a public bathing area. There is a spectacular coastal walk around the Cap. There is water skiing from Garoupe beach and a sailing club in Antibes.


Nice Airport is 30 minutes drive away on the A8. We would recommend car hire although we do use bikes to get into Antibes and Juan les Pins. Guests are welcome to borrow our bicycles.


Antibes and Juan les Pins are 2 miles away. Antibes is traditional and historical with a covered market and cobbled streets. The Picasso Museum is there and lots of bars and restaurants.

Juan les Pins is a long stretch of beach with oodles of bars, restaurants and shops. Fantastic fun for children and teenagers and the young at heart! Don't miss having a cocktail or gigantic ice-cream at the PamPam bar which features latin american dancers.

There are medieval towns to explore such as Mougins in the hills. A fabulous treat is dinner at Colombe d'Or in St Paul de Vence where you dine amongst Picassos and Miros. Unbelievable. For hardened shoppers, Cannes is under half an hour away and has everything from Armani to Zara. Plus there is always St Tropez and Monte Carlo for people watching and glamourous fun. We've owned the property for 15 years and still feel like we're only scratching the surface of all the wonderful places to visit.

Further Details:

A small supermarket is next door to the villa. A smarter deli, butchers and chemist is a 10 minute walk away. The deli will deliver groceries, beer, water, wine to the house for your arrival. Details upon request.

Tennis can be organised at the small hotel, Castel Garoupe, opposite the villa.

My husband is a keen golfer and can recommend golf courses in the area.

If you're visiting in the winter you can drive to the ski resort, Isola 2000 which is great fun too.
