About Dorothy Cunningham Vollmer

We are Vollmer Cunningham Dorothy & Francis - a Franco-Irish couple who have lived here since 2004. We really want your stay to be as pleasant and relaxing as possible so please ask us for any insider information on things to do and places to go in the area, especially for children. We know that guests like their own space so we are very discreet, but we are always on hand should you need anything. Please look at our website 0669078715 for more details and photos.

Dorothy Cunningham Vollmer purchased this villa in 2004

Why Dorothy Cunningham Vollmer chose Roquefort-les-Pins

This is a great village for bringing up children - there is a very relaxed atmosphere which we like a lot. We used to pass through this village on our way to Francis's parents house and I always wished we'd have a house here one day. We're far enough away from the city yet we have everything we need on our doorstep - it's only 5 minutes walk to the village centre. Cannes is only 16 kms away and even a trip to Monaco is only 45 mins by car! In ski-season you can find yourself going skiing on Saturday and off to the beach on Sunday! The sunshine of course is one of the main reasons for buying here rather than in Dublin! Quick access to the Airport means we can pop home more often.

What makes this villa unique

We have spent over a year looking for quirky characterful pieces of furniture to make this place a little different. If you like we can give you a peek at the "before & after" photos!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a very nice vacation in Villa Zelda,thanks to the excellent hospitality of the owners, Dorothy and Francis. The house is furnished with taste and love. Fully equipped kitchen, very clean and well maintained. Very good for small children (many toys, great for children to play in the garden). The location is very convenient, just 20 minutes drive to Nice and Cannes. Supermarket, restaurants, a pharmacy nearby. Ideal! Highly recommended. And we will absolutely come back. The Haller Family - Vienna, Austria 2011.

We had such a wonderful 10 days in Villa Zelda that it was very hard to leave. The weather was fab, the house was bright and spacious and beautifully decorated with lots of personal touches. The kids played for ages in the pool (and were thrilled to find a box full of toys in the bedroom!) Great location for visiting the surrounding beaches and towns (Hubby also loved Opio Golf just down the road). We'll be back! - Mrs. Tobin, Ireland 2011

Really wish we'd booked two weeks!

  • 5 of 5

The time flew by, the weather was amazing and Villa Zelda had everything you could want or need. As is not often the case - it actually looks better in real life than the photos!! Loved the decor and Dorothy was so welcoming and helpful and was able to organise several things for us including pairing our speaker to the house Wifi system, getting us a taxi for a night out and printing our boarding passes among other things. So handy but also very discreet as we hardly saw her unless we called for help!

There are quite a few restaurants within walking distance - our favourite was the très French "Auberge du Clos" which was amazing! We didn't get everything done on our "to do" list, so we really wished we'd booked for a bit longer - maybe next year!!

5 stars! Amazing villa you won't be disappointed

  • 5 of 5

We're back home after staying at villa zelda for a week. It truly was amazing lovely throughout extremely clean, spacious, homely and well equipped with the bonus of a garden big enough for a game of badminton and a really good size pool and bbq. 20/30 minutes from Nice airport and easy to find. Close to supermarket and restaurants. Dorothy is so lovely too very welcoming and super friendly. We really wish we had booked 2 weeks. We would definitely recommend and we would definitely return thank you Dorothy for a lovely holiday 🤗😊☀️ xxx

Beautiful apartment, great location, warm welcome

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay at Villa Zelda. As ever a warm welcome from Dorothŷ and family. The apartment is super clean and comfortable, with all mods cons. We love coming back to the pool after a day exploring the area and having a barbeque in the garden. The town has some good places to eat (we like L'auberge du clos pins) and Valbonne is a short drive away with even more choice. Beaches around Antibes are easy to get to as is the amazing Lac de Saint Cassien with its crystal clear swimming water and canoe and boat hire. Highly recommended.

Fantastic holiday

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for seven nights. Dorothy and her family made us feel at home and we could not fault the property. Villa Zelda is ideally situated for several local restaurants, all of which made us very welcome. Roquefort Les Pins is well positioned to visit Grasse, Cannes, Nice, Monaco and all the great places there are to visit on the Cote D'Azur

Just Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a fabulous stay at Villa Zelda. The villa is spacious and beautifully appointed, equipped with everything you could possibly need (and much, much more). We arrived late on a Saturday evening and so finding bread, cheese and champagne waiting for us was very welcome indeed.

Ideally located for exploring the surrounding area including Biot, Mougins, Grasse, Valbonne as well as the larger towns on the Cote d’Azur and it’s also just a short walk to the centre of Roquefort-les-Pins where there is an Intermarche supermarket and a fabulous boulangerie.

After a day of exploring, the pool is wonderful to cool down in the summer heat before relaxing with an early-evening barbecue – idyllic!

But, special thanks must go to Dorothy who was amazing. Such a warm inviting welcome and so helpful when we needed assistance. Nothing was too much trouble.

Can’t wait to come back :-)

Beautiful home and amazing welcome!

  • 5 of 5

We were well looked after from first inquiry to the time we left Villa Zelda by Dorothy and her family. Such a pleasure to have welcoming hosts who are just upstairs but at the same time you'd never really know they were there....perfect.

We could have spent all week in the wonderful house and garden and just walking around the village but we like to get out and explore. I was a great base to get to loads of places, we were able to enjoy time in Italy, Monaco, Nice, Cannes along with many of the mountain villages like Gourdon and Tourettes Sur Loup.

We were close to a small supermarket, restaurants and bakeries etc with some larger ones and shopping centers just a 15min drive away. It was great and the children loved their bedrooms, the toys and books and the pool :)

An amazing holiday where many treasured memories were made. Hope to return again to see the area and spend time in Villa Zelda once more.

Thank you for having us.

Car: recommended


Just 15 minutes drive away there is a lovely smooth-surfaced seaside promenade at Cagnes-sur-Mer (9km) which is perfect for walking, jogging, cycling and rollerblading. Down the coast towards Nice is the famous ‘Promenade des Anglais’. A 15 minute ferry ride from Cannes takes you to the quiet, unspoilt islands of les Iles de Lerins. The sandy beaches of Antibes & Cannes are only 12 and 16kms away.


Nice Airport 20kms - Direct bus route from Terminal 1 (number 500 heading to Grasse - stops in Roquefort les Pins). A car is not essential but we would recommend it in order to get the most out of your trip to the French Riviera.


20km from Nice airport. 16km from Cannes. 12km from Antibes. 6km from Valbonne. 12km from Saint Paul de Vence.

Further Details:

There are so many things to do and see around Roquefort les Pins. The nearby village of Valbonne has a very pretty Pedestrian Quarter with restaurants all around for balmy outdoor dining. The Sea World of Marineland just 10 mins drive away in Antibes which comprises of a water based animal park with Dolphins and Killer Whales, a children's Farm, MINIGOLF and the Waterslide Park ‘Aquasplash’. Children's Accrobranch (tree-climbing with ropes and pulleys) and a childrens Labyrinth are just 4kms down the road in Villeneuve Loubet. The picturesque mountainside village of Saint Paul de Vence (12km) with its famous Art Galleries and Gourmet Restaurants is a favourite outing for visitors and locals alike. An hour's drive will bring you to the excitement of Monaco's glamorous boutiques and famous casinos. Then pop over the border for the Italian experience and the busy Friday morning market of Ventimiglia. One of the biggest KARTING tracks in Europe (Fun-Kart) is only 12 kms away on the road to Gourdon, "Monster Paintball" is right beside it for double the trouble! The Matisse museum in Nice is a must for admirers of his work. We also have the national museums of Ferdinand Leger, Marc Chargall and Picasso's "La Guerre et La Paix" exhibition in the region. Villa Zelda is the perfect base for exploring the French Riviera.
