Molle Eliza purchased this villa in 2003

Why Molle Eliza chose Cannes - Grasse - Antibes

Near Valbonne which has the rare priviledge in the region of having 5 roads , at mid distance between the busy coastal area and the first slopes of the southern Alps .

Valbonne itself has a charming old village with cafés terrasses (featuring in the pleasant movie 'French kiss'), and a live modern part with bakery, fresh vegetables , memorable fruit stands , wines shops , in brief not taken over by real estates and banks like many other villages .

Several international schools and some faculties of the University of Nice are located nearby, in the techno park of Sophia-Antipolis.

What makes this villa unique

Free lease in a very nice closed domain of only 9 individual villas, located on top of a small wooden hill .

Large ground floor with only one bedroom upstairs .Very quiet with view on the valley and other hills.

Particularly convenient for family with kids as the property is all fenced , with the front pool easily watched from the patio, and wooden back garden with plenty of outdoor games .

Proximity of the sea and amusement/water parks .

Full sky digital programs , useful to keep the small kids happy.

Central aircon , heated pool and spa.

Review Submitted: 18 August 2012Date of Stay: July 2012

I cannot recommend this lovely spacious villa highly enough. The owners have thought of everything, from the fully equipped kitchen to big screen TV's and wireless. There's great security, a fabulous pool and hot tub, good parking, and lots of room to spread out with three large bedrooms and four private baths, perfect for myself, my petite Maltese Poesy and my vacations Cathy, Martha and Luciano. Valbonne is only a mile away, with its restaurants and great Friday market. Cannes, Nice, Antibes are also close. I can see why families with children adore this vacation spot with its backyard full of activities for kids. but its great for adults who want to swim and relax too. The owners could not have been accommodating and helpful. We now consider Daniel and Elisabeth to be our dear friends and look forward seeing them again on our next stay. We etc....

Lovely villa in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Have just returned from a fantastic two week stay at this lovely villa. It has everything you need (and more) to make your holiday comfortable and relaxing. The villa is very private but not isolated. It is in a very central location for exploring the area and it is easy to get into Valbonne, although maybe a bit too far to walk in the middle of summer on a hot day. Valbonne is a lovely little town that has lots of restaurants that open out onto the pavements and in the square in the evenings. The Friday market is really nice for a walk round but does get busy so go early. We went to Monaco for a day and also drove round the 'Grand Canyon' which was a full day out but worth the trip. Cannes is about 20 minutes away as is Grasse where we had a lovely morning at Fragonard perfume factory and then walked round the town and had a drink.

There is lots to see and do within an easy drive, but away from the hustle and bustle at the coast.

The owners clearly take pride in their villa and make sure it is perfect for your arrival. They met us at the villa and showed us round and explained how to use everything. They provided lots of information about supermarkets and restaurants, and were on hand if you needed them for any other help during your stay.

We had our two sons with us aged 14 and 12 and the hot tub and the Pétanque proved very popular with them.

We all had space to relax and do our own thing when we wanted, and enjoyed lots of evenings together outside playing pétanque and eating around the outside table.

September stay

  • 4 of 5

Very professionally managed villa with 3 good sized bedrooms - all with ensuite bathrooms. Large sitting room with dining table and seating area with Sky TV. Well equipped kitchen.

Full range of amenities provided eg heated pool, hot tub, Weber gas BBQ ,table football, table tennis and pétanque.

Valbonne and Mougin both within easy reach but ( hire )car required. Nice is just 20 min away and only slightly further to Vence and St Paul de Vence.

Supermarkets are in neighbouring villages with good range of items.

Several restaurants within walking distance but again for those in Valbonne a car will be needed. Excellent Friday market in Valbonne

Our family holiday passed all too quickly and we would certainly consider revisiting this villa to try and see all the places of interest still on our list!

Thank you for a wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful week away in superb family friendly villa, in a lovely charming village of valbonne.

Travelled with my one year old little boy on his first family holiday, and it was perfect, the owners Daniel and Elsie really have catered for every need it was home from home. Child and infant friendly from cot to high chairs to the lovely playground and heated pool. For adults their is a fab hot tub, full sky tv, BBQ and all the amenities you could need for a luxury self catering holiday in a beautiful villa, In the charming french riviera, with cannes, nice and Monaco only a 20 minute drive away. Cannot recommend this villa enough to anyone wishing to travel with young children, we are already looking to plan are next visit.

Most beaches at within 12 to 17 kms : Antibes, Cannes, Mandelieu

meaning that they can be reached within 20 to 35 mn in summer depending the time of the day . The expressway /A8 towards Cannes and Mandelieu has no toll.Of special interest to kids is the Marineland in Antibes . Another good outing is the visit of the perched village of Gourdon (15 km) and a bit beyond, the Natural Reserve of Monts d'Azur , with a guise in horse carriage to show you the remaining European buffalos and rare horses
