Charming Valbonne Villa with pool



Updated: 17-Nov-2016
Villa in Valbonne, Alpes Maritimes, Cote D'AZur, France - with private garden and shared pool, sleeps 5

Weekly rental in summer, Sunday - Sunday.

This small independent villa is conveniently situated on a small private domaine with secured access and parking for two cars. La Belle Rose is set in neat enclosed private gardens of roses and lavender. A secured fenced swimming pool, pool (7m x 4m, depth 1m to 1.8m) is about 30 metres away, and is shared with the other seven houses on this enclosed domaine. A well-maintained and very well-equipped modern detached house, it has covered terraces on both floors and ceiling fans and movable fans to cool you during those hot summer days and nights. Sleeps 5.

La Belle Rose is situated just 1km from the charming village of Valbonne, with its ancient alleyways which cascade with colourful blooms and Provençal square, lined with restaurants and cafés. Away from the summer crowds but near the lovely towns of Grasse, Cannes and Antibes and there are several excellent golf courses all within a few minutes’ drive.

About the Owner

We are an American couple who spent 6 years living in Valbonne and working nearby in Sophia Antipolis.

In 1998 we returned to the States but we love this area so much that we bought a "pied a terre" to which we could return and eventually spend part of our retirement.

This is our home away from home and hope that visitors to our villa feel right at home as well.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our fourth visit here has been one of the best. The house is very comfortable and very convenient. Thank you yet again! David & Jennifer

Our first visit here and to the region. Lovely house, very clean, had everything we needed. Good welcome. Would return again. Ian & Christine

We've had two incredible two weeks at this lovely house filled with sunshine and a refreshing swim whenever we needed it. E can recommend Tourette - a beautiful medieval town. Grasse and Cagner sur Mer. Monaco was fabulous and well worth the visit. Thank you for such a warm welcome. Malina, Alan & family

Holiday Experience

  • 4 of 5

Comfortable traditional French house, would benefit from a little 'updating' but suited our needs very well. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and appreciated the garden and pool. You ask any ideas for improvements, we would suggest air conditioning or possibly ceiling fans in the other 2 bedrooms. An outside light near the BBQ would have been very helpful. Some of the outside furniture could do with replacing.

We appreciated very much the help from Judi and also arranging for the cot and high chair.

Overall a very successful holiday and a good location to explore the area, car absolutely essential.

Perfect for our family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The villa was very well equipped, clean and we enjoyed the garden and the pool. It was lovely and quiet, yet very near lots of places to visit - a great location.

Valbonne and the area was lovely and it was great to visit the beach, Nice, Grasse and Antibes. We will definitely go back.

La Belle Rose

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here 5 times over the last 10 years. It's a great property: near Valbonne, Cannes and the Côte d'Azur. Lee and Betsy take pride in the care of the property and it's always clean and up to date. Great wifi too. I highly recommend La Belle Rose.

From the Owner

My husband and I were working in Sophia Antipolis, the local business park and we fell in love with Valbonne when we arrived. It was close to work and yet had the feel of the French countryside. There are many things to do right in the village including a cinema that shows films in English and many restaurants and shops to explore. Valbonne is close enough to the A8 motorway to get places quickly. It is good home base to explore local sites and launch day trips.

From the Owner

The proximity to the village and park areas for recreation delight us again and again. Lunches in the central square of Valbonne and market day and favorites of ours. It's so easy to jump in the car and be in Italy for a leisurely lunch with friends. Beaches of the Med, the sandy one you can find are great and not a major trip either. Tennis is our sport and we are repeat visitors to a small tennis club near our villa.
