About Dorothy Cunningham Vollmer

We are 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 for more details and photos.

Dorothy Cunningham Vollmer purchased this villa in 2004

Why Dorothy Cunningham Vollmer chose Cannes - Grasse - Antibes

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

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.

Villa Zelda

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at Villa Zelda, just the perfect retreat, away from it all yet close enough to walk to the supermarket and some restaurants. The house was Very clean and comfortable, with everything you could possibly need

Valbonne is only c6 miles away and is well worth a visit, also the old town of Biot, as well as Mougins .

Amazing stay at Villa Zelda

  • 5 of 5

We have just come back from a fantastic weeks stay at Villa Zelda. Dorothy could not have been more welcoming or helpful from the minute we arrived.

The villa was exactly as described and felt very spacious, the kitchen was well equipped and each room immaculately furnished. A real plus having sky TV, it was like home from home!

The pool was a big hit with all of us in the heat and used whenever we were in, it was well maintained and of the standard of the rest of the villa.

Dorothy gave excellent customer service, available for any advice and assistance and nothing was too much trouble. We had complete privacy throughout our stay and i would thoroughly recommend this holiday home.

We had a hire car and really made use of the beautiful weather to explore. Toulon was our first stop, to visit the rugby stadium and was an easy drive along the coast. We then did San Remo in Italy, Monaco, Cannes, Antibes, Nice centre, and Grasse... Plus we even managed to fit in a visit to watch a stage of the Tour de France which was easily achievable with only an hours drive up in to the Alps. I would thoroughly recommend all of these places to any visitor. Public transport is equally as good and despite having a car we also used the bus to reach Nice central and Grasse. The local bus service is cheap and efficient and if we didn't have a car we would have easily travelled by bus and train to the same destinations.

Locally, you have all the amenities you need, so if you just wanted to stick to Roquefort les pins, you would equally enjoy a week relaxing in the village. But my advice would be to explore the area as you wont be disappointed!
