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.

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

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!

Best holiday ever!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday in Villa Zelda. The villa itself is beautifully decorated, comfortable and very clean. The garden was perfect for our kids as it was completely self contained, so no worries about wandering off. Also because the pool is above ground, we didn't have to worry about the smaller children falling in. The big table and chairs for eating outside and 3 sun loungers provided meant we could spend lots of time outside. The road next to the villa can be a little busy at times, but wasn't a big issue as the hedging around the garden maintains privacy.

The villa is in a great location in Roquefort Les Pins. There is a supermarket, boulangerie, restaurants etc. within walking distance and you're also within driving distance to Cannes, Monaco, Antibes and St Tropez. We visited Cannes, Monaco and Antibes during our stay and absolutely loved them. Especially the town and beach in Antibes that we visited 4 days of our stay.

Dorothy was so lovely to us and provided bread, butter, cheese, milk and even beer and a bottle of champagne on our arrival. She was able to give us lots of information on local restaurants and attractions etc and even helped us to sort out a parking ticket! Unless we looked for her though, she left us to our own devices, so we had the best of both worlds during our stay!

I would highly recommend this as a place to stay.

Great apartment

Hi. Have just come back after after a great week. Dorothy and Francis were the perfect hosts and had lovely touches like champagne on ice, beer and butter all waiting in the fridge. Would thoroughly recommend. A great holiday. Many thanks. Stuart

From the Owner

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.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Nice at 22 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : Cappucino, le Cave, at 500 Metres Nearest Golf : OPIO GOLF at 4 Kilometres Nearest Train : Cagnes sur Mer SNCF at 7 Kilometres Nearest Motorway : A8 at 7 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : Auberge du clos des Pins at 500 Metres Nearest Beach : Cagnes sur mer at 8 Kilometres 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.
