Perks for the Parents

This stunning villa in the French Riviera on the edge of a typical Provencal village with its medieval castle, offers a private and peaceful setting with Mediterranean gardens, several al fresco places to dine, gorgeous interiors and panoramic views of the Saint-Véran Forest, the Alps and the sea. It sleeps 14. The swimming pool is 13 x 6m with a depth of 2.21m, so perfect for an early morning workout. Cool off in the pool house that comes with a large fridge and dining terrace. Cook with local produce in the modern kitchen - or hire a chef if you prefer. Out and about are charming villages, art galleries, local festivals, yachting harbors, and superb golf courses.

Why Kids Love it

Kids will love the large gardens where they are free to explore safely. The pool will provide hours of fun (please note, it is ungated). There is baby and toddler equipment available including a pushchair, baby bath, crib and high chair(s). Walk down to the village (about 15 minutes downhill) in the morning to get fresh croissants and baguettes from the boulangerie. Or take a longer walk (1.5km) from the house along the banks of the Loup River, through a lush forest to the beach at seaside Villeneuve-Loubet. Kids will enjoy jumping the small waves at the local beach, just 30 minutes’ drive. The area is family-friendly with two theme parks, outdoor activities and water sports.

Style Notes

Sophisticated Côte d’Azur living. This historic olive farm was converted into a residential villa in the 18th century and many aristocrats have since then enjoyed its beautiful setting, elegantly proportioned rooms and grand, high ceilings. It has remained in the same family for over 100 years and has recently been renovated to a high standard to offer modern comfort while keeping all of its original character. Bedrooms are tastefully curated with soft pastel linens, tiled floors and art prints. Many bathrooms have a stand-alone clawfoot bath with a view. The main living area is elegant and comfortable. We love the beautiful and peaceful grounds, the newly built pool house with a bar and dining table for relaxed lunchtime eating next to the pool, and the gorgeous outside dining space under old trees where you can watch the sun sink behind the mountains as you relax with your family and friends.
