Villa in the heart of the village by the sea



Updated: 04-Oct-2016
La Napoule seaside villa - Peaceful location, just a few minutes walk to the beaches and village centre

LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION – LA NAPOULE is a “little gem” that lies in the heart of the French Riviera, just along the coast from Cannes. It has its own marinas, beaches, castle, golf course, rivers and railway station – all within a few minutes walk. The village has quaint bars and restaurants, certainly a dozen within walking distance. There is also a weekly market, a local supermarket and a newsagent that sells international papers. Take the two-tier air-conditioned train and hug the coastline journeying to Italy (1 hr +) via Cannes, Juan-les-Pins, Nice, Antibes and Monaco to name but a few. Journey in the other direction to Marseilles. There are some other wonderful inland villages and scenery too. Mougins, Biot, Ez, St Paul de Vence, Valbonne and St Tropez are all on the doorstep. Hire a boat and nip over to the islands that lie opposite or anchor off the numerous nearby bays. The VILLA is in a quiet back water of the village – very near to the sea front and rivers. There are lovely walks along the coast or inland. The villa is situated on a "no through road" and so is very quiet - with no passing traffic.. Wi-Fi is provided FREE of charge.

There are numerous watersports available on your doorstep. You can hire weight boards, kayaks, dinghies, kite-surfing, powerboats etc.. and also receive instruction at the local nautical centre.

About the Owner

Sue and Paul originate from Cheshire but now live in the south of France. They have had a property on the French Riviera for 8 years. Sue and Paul still have connections in the UK and spend their summers and Christmas' there. In France they love all that the south coast has to offer. The numerous sandy bays and beaches. The pretty villages both seaside and inland. The long, lazy and relaxed lunches with a glass of the local Rose. The buzz of Cannes, Nice and St Tropez. The outdoor markets selling local produce. Going out on the sea with friends. Exploring the numerous nearby villages (many mediaeval). Visiting Italy and nearby French Regions. See for yourselves!!!

A Wonderful Little Oasis in a Very Friendly Town

  • 5 of 5

As soon as we walked through the gates to the villa we were blown away. Any fears or doubts over our choice immediately disappeared! As we gradually discovered the garden and rooms our excitement only grew. And as the realisation dawned on us that our home for the next 7 nights was actually the perfect destination for our very private, "chill-out" needs - with plenty of space, clean rooms, comprehensive kitchen, loads of relaxation options in the garden and a feeling of privacy in comfort - we relaxed.

The villa is lovely. One immediately feels at home - even spoilt at the thought that it is just for you.

It's not easy to please everyone, but

There were three of us - mum, dad and 17-yr old son whose sole priority for the whole week was to get a tan. He wasn't disappointed.

My wife - a "particular" person when it comes to accommodation - was over the moon. To hear them both say within minutes that it was the ideal holiday home for them was music to a father's ears!

The positives? Barely five minutes walk to a lovely beach & bay with scenic castle, seemingly never over crowded, genuinely friendly beach bar & safe swimming. Another beach lies the other side of the castle, but we never got that far; too easy to hire a sunbed & parasol for half a day or longer on the jetty and be lazy.

The town has an intimate, village-like feel. An under 10 minute walk to the heart of the village and everything you might need - boulangerie, fruit & veg shop, pharmacy, ATM, a small supermarket and the gregariously friendly spit-roast chicken vendor. Be warned! You may have to pre-order it's so good. All you need in a compact area. Really...more like a village only a few minutes stroll.

There's also a top selection of restaurants to tempt, but we tended to stick to the same friendly team & picturesque setting beach-side at Le Boucanier or eat in. La Napoule has everything from quality pizza to elegant Michelin Star but it's appeal is that it doesn't have a commercial feel. Very natural, very friendly and very relaxing.

The only negatives might be the train line running nearby but it doesn't disturb and soon we didn't even notice. The studio needs a bigger fan or better cooling at night too. It can be hot.

We loved the villa, but what reassured us most pre-arrival was the help, advice and attention we received from the owners: full details about what's available nearby, how to find it, the various transfer options from Nice Airport, all made easy.

From the Owner

We original came to the south of France, together, about 15 years ago. We loved what it had to offer and so decided to buy an "escape" home here. We spent several years scouring the coastline of the Riviera, looking for the perfect location. We wanted to be by the sea, live in a typical quaint French village and be able to walk to places that we use. High on our requirement list was being able to walk to beaches for a swim, be able to walk to restaurants and bars, have easy access to the airport and large towns and have good public transport facilities. We found La Napoule - what a gem!!

From the Owner

The property is located in a lovely backwater of the village with no through traffic. The sea is literally a few minutes walk away as is the village centre. We can travel to the airport by train, so no need for lifts or taxis. We have a great selection of restaurants and bars and we also have our own seaside Chateau, which is open to the public. We have wonderful coastal walks or river walks - all directly from the house. We also have 2 x golf courses on our doorstep and 2 x marinas. There is also a nautical centre, within walking distance, where you can hire dinghies, weight boards, kayaks etc..
