Unsere Villa befindet sich im Herzen von einem privaten Bereich in Valbonne, in der Mitte von einem Pinienwald, auf einem Gipfel eines Hügels mit Blick auf das Mittelmeer. Big beheizten Pool kommt zusammen mit seiner Poolhaus mit Küche und Grill ausgestattet. Weit im Freien mit schönen Garten, Spielplatz für Kinder, Spielplatz für Pétanque, überdachter Essbereich und 3 Parkplätze. Dieses ein friedlicher Ort, um in der Familie entspannen und ganz in der Nähe von allen Sehenswürdigkeiten der Riviera Französisch.
The interior of this house is in excellent decorative order and the main living room which has luxurious seating has been individualised by original oil paintings of the Cote D'Azur by local artists. It looks out onto a beautiful garden and a large swimming pool with a view over a forested valley to the Mediterranean a few kilometres away. The kitchen has modern cooking equipment and utensils and the 5 bedrooms are well appointed with ensuite bedrooms.
The Property Manager, Lionel, was always at hand to assist and he visited us several times to check that everything was going smoothly. The French Housekeeper, Ruth, was friendly and helpful and came regularly to ensure that the house was kept in pristine condition.
The nearest village is Valbonne some 8 kilometres away. It is a pleasant 17th/18th century village with a fine square and with many excellent restaurants and shops. There is a market once a week on a Saturday where local produce is on sale. We explored the area by making use of the excellent bus services and managed to find time to visit the nearby mediaeval village of Biot, the "perfume town" of Grasse and we also had a trip to Nice.
As the weather was hot and sunny we often preferred to stay and relax in the magnificent garden beside the swimming pool. Our three grandchildren(11,9 and 7) visited and found it enjoyable. They played boule in one special corner of the garden and table tennis under a shaded roof next to the house.
The overall impression is as if this house was in Hollywood, USA and we have no hesitation in awarding it five stars and recommending it to others.

My family and I have rented a dozen properties in France over the years and we have a good basis for comparison.
I would thoroughly recommend this house to other families. My wife and daughter loved it. The house itself is provencale and typical of the region, but really modern and well-furnished inside.
Fantastic kitchen with cooking island and three fridges, including one for those superb local wines!
Bedrooms and bathrooms (the master even has scented steam room) were as nice as any hotel we have stayed in. Our daughter loved the mezzanine room with the spiral staircase.
Walk down to the garden and you'll find a lovely heated pool. Amazing open views over the hills all the way to the Med...no other buildings in sight!
Table-tennis, badminton, boules court, table football. Great pool-house with full kitchen facilities, BBQ and even a shower and changing room in the basement.
Best of all is the beautiful garden full of flowers, lemon trees, and giant palms. I could go on! If I was being hyper-critical, light switches in the living room were a little complicated but we soon worked them out.
Lionel, the manager, was very friendly and the house manual really helpful. Valbonne and Biot were only 5 mins away by car. Very convenient having a Carrefour and patisserie at the roundabout next to the entrance to the estate.
This house definitely deserves its 5 star rating! I'd give them more if I could.
My family and I spend our summers in France and we have tried many properties along the coast - with mixed results.
Having said that, I am pleased to say that this house stands heads and shoulders above the rest. If you are looking for some peace and tranquility with your partner or family - this is the place to be.
The house itself is Provencale in its look and feel, yet also really modern and well-furnished inside. Fantastic kitchen with cooking island and three fridges (!), including one for wine.
Bedrooms and bathrooms (including a master bedroom with a steam room) were as nice as any hotel we have stayed in - tastefully decorated and well fitted.
Our daughter loved the mezzanine room with the spiral staircase. In the garden, a lovely good-sized heated pool awaits you. Amazing unobstructed views over the hills all the way to the Med!
Table-tennis, badminton, boules court, table football all there to keep the kids busy. Great pool-house with full kitchen facilities, BBQ and even a shower and changing room in the basement.
Best of all is the beautiful garden full of flowers, lemon trees, and giant palms. I could go on and on! For those picky ones among you, the light switches in the living room were a tad bit complicated, but I figured it out with the help of my wife.
Lionel, the manager, was very friendly and the house manual really helpful. Valbonne and Biot were only 5 mins away by car - or a nice walk. Very convenient having a Carrefour and patisserie at the roundabout next to the entrance to the estate.
This house definitely deserves its 5 star rating...we would give more if we could! Highly recommended. We'd be happy to return next year!
We had a fantastic holiday. The house was spacious, clean and very well appointed with everything a family could need. The pool house was perfect for BBQs, with plenty of seating and a separate kitchen. We enjoyed visiting the nearby villages of Valbonne and Biot and walks along river as well as exploring the bigger Riviera towns of Antibes, Nice and Monaco. We had such a fantastic time we have already booked again for 2016 and would definitely recommend it to friends and family.
We enjoyed 2 wonderful weeks in this very quaint and perfectly maintained summer house. Rooms and bathrooms are modern and seem brand new. The kitchen is fully equipped and there is a wonderful BBQ in the outside cabana. The location could not be better to enjoy Cannes, Antibes, Nice, Grasse, Valbonne, Monaco, St. Tropez, Eze, etc... All destinations were no more than 1 hour away. The main Cote d'Azur Highway is just 10min away and take you east-west. The property Manager and maid service we one of the best we have encountered. All of this means we recommend this property highly and look forward to being able to come back again for another 2 week stay.
We really enjoyed staying in this house, in fact it is one of the best we have rented. Very nice furnishings and everything was clean and in great condition. Beds were very comfortable (which wasn't the case in the place we rented last year in SW France). But the highlight was the garden which was quite spectacular (better than in the photos) and the views over the forest all the way to the sea are to die for! Quite a large heated pool and much better than some of the other houses we have stayed in. The property manager (Lionel) was very professional and always responded quickly when we had questions about the house or local amenities. This is an ideal house for families with children and we would certainly recommend this place to our friends.
