The owners of this jewel have dedicated themselves to understanding and creating a lifestyle for ultimate relaxation. Their aim is to provide a holiday home that is fully equipped with all the latest conveniences and toys within a peaceful environment.

Villa Emeraude is in 3.5 acres of grounds and is situated just 30 minutes from Nice airport, 20 minutes from Cannes and 15 minutes from the nearest sea and beaches. It has a tennis court, heated swimming pool with adjacent Jacuzzi, sauna, boules court, table tennis, gym, backgammon terrace, cinema room with satellite TV and several indoor and outdoor dining areas.

There are 8 double bedrooms, four ensuite and four sharing 2 bathrooms. It is equipped with wireless broadband with excellent reception. There is also a double garage and ample guest car parking on the grounds.

Villa Emeraude is situated just outside Pegomas in an enclave that was home to counts, lords and princes. It is a 15 minute walk or a 3 minute drive into the village. Pegomas is a typical French village that enjoys the best of both worlds: a quiet country setting yet close to all the essential amenities and hot spots of the Riviera.

Choose from booking a single sumptuous meal with a private chef for that special occasion, or hire a chef to cook your meals for all or part of your holiday - it’s as flexible as it is delicious.

A) Single Meal Service: A chef will travel to this villa and whip up a fantastic meal for you and your guests.

Owner Profile

Property Owner

How long have you owned the property?
More than 20 years.

What was it about the property that you first fell in love with?
The privacy, space, and the gardens with its old trees, but is very safe. Above all, it is close to Nice airport, as well as all the hotspots In Cannes and La Napoule… just minutes from beaches, as well as close to all the restaurants and supermarkets. Pegomas itself is an all year round village so it is easy for beauty salons, butchers, boulangeries, etc… It is civilized!!

Are there any interesting stories in its history?
Yes, Villa Emeraude and our neighbor's estate was previously one estate owned by Count Fragonard, who then sold the larger part to Lord Astor of Hever, keeping back a piece of land on which he built Villa Emeraude. Unfortunately for Lord Astor, the new house Villa Emeraude overlooked the previous estate which made Lord Astor furious. We now have beautiful grounds for our view without the maintenance. Rumour has it that the Count and Lord Astor never spoke to each other again after the house was built resulting in the necessity of having to have two functions each time there was a special occasion in the village. Lord Astor would cut the ribbons in the mornings and the Count in the afternoons.

Have you ever had any famous guests staying?
Yes, we had ministers from London, pop bands and famous names from the United States.

For anyone coming to stay is there anything in the surrounding area they should...
Really do?
Go to the beaches, to night clubs in Cannes, wine tasting, visit the hilltop villages, play golf (excellent golf courses minutes from the house), walking trails, etc.

Really eat?
Excellent restaurant within a 10 to 12 minutes driving, including some michelin restaurants and the Village itself have good restaurants.

Really see?
Go to see the Hilltop villages for which the South of France is famous. Also visit the perfume factories.

Lastly, what insider tip would you pass on about the property or the area?
We have an excellent housekeeper who is also an excellent cook. I recommend asking her to cook you at least one meal during your stay.

    Posted by Anonymous User on 20/09/2012

    We did have an excellent holiday - and thoroughly enjoyed the house and especially the garden, tennis court and pool - we virtually lived outside all week.
    My Mother-in-law walked with Gloria every morning and explored the surroundings and the rest of us made day trips and I rode my bike - so all was well.
    Thank You again for the use of your wonderful house.

    I have just returned from spending a great week at Villa Emeraude. The grounds and the house are no doubt what made the stay so pleasant for us. The rooms are attractive and comfortable. As we were leaving we discussed the possibility of coming back. That I think is indication enough.....we enjoyed ourselves. It felt like a stay in a friend's house. That made us protective towards everything. Thank you for everything. Regards
