Walk to Village

Spend precious time in the Côte d'Azur at this gorgeous family home, within walking distance to a lovely local town and just a stone’s throw from the glitz and glamour of Cannes.

Open up the pretty shuttered French windows and be greeted with beautiful views of hills and woodland. The spacious living and dining room opens up to the large terrace with its outdoor lounge and Mediterranean gardens. Enjoy leisurely meals as kids play on the trampoline and swing or let their imaginations run wild by the little treehouse. The inviting swimming pool is also perfect for splashing around or simply soak up the summer sun on one of the poolside loungers, surrounded by olive trees and towering pines.  

There are yet more countryside views from each of the four bedrooms, one featuring a romantic balcony, another with an en suite bathroom. Guests will also love the cosy TV den, perhaps for cooler evenings with a DVD or just relax with family and friends in the main living room, always admiring those magnificent vistas. There is air-conditioning throughout as well as a Smart TV and Wi-Fi.

Wander down the winding lane and within twenty minutes you can be in the heart of the nearby town with its picturesque rivers, a handful of restaurants and a typical local atmosphere. There are also some wonderful walks through the surrounding hills and forests including the Route d'Or hiking trail leading all the way to Grasse.  

Within 10km you can be relaxing by the shores of the Mediterranean or head towards the glamourous city of Cannes with its glitzy marinas, high-end restaurants and yet more brilliant beaches, not to mention a wealth of watersports and other activities. Take a boat trip to the idyllic Lérins Islands or spend time exploring the French Riviera by yacht, taking in the spectacular scenery around you.

The perfumeries of Grasse, the vibrant Friday morning market in Valbonne and the picture-postcard villages of Mougins, Opio and Biot are all delightful places to visit, as is the Lac de Saint-Cassien and the rock-pools and waterfalls near Gourdon. In the meantime, golf-lovers have a great number of courses to choose from including the renowned Royal Mougins Golf Resort nearby.

Whether relaxing by your pool with a cooling summer breeze or out and about exploring this alluring region, you really are perfectly positioned to make the most of the Côte d'Azur and its stunning hinterland.

Just a short drive from Cannes and the beaches of the French Riviera, Villa Olea is well located for exploring the dazzling Côte d'Azur as well as its beautiful hinterland with idyllic villages and stunning scenery.

Follow the winding lane up a hill and Villa Olivia can be found in a semi-residential area that partially backs on to hills and forests, perfect for woodland walks and there is horse-riding a few minutes away.  

You can wander down to the local town (if you don’t mind the hilly walk back) where you will find a selection of restaurants and a supermarket as well as a handful of other useful amenities. There’s a pleasant atmosphere across this small town as residents play pétanque on shady squares or amble beside the picturesque little river.

This is a popular area with walkers, mainly due to the Route d’Or which heads north to Grasse or west through the Tanneron forests. This trail is especially wonderful in February and early Spring when the flowering mimosas are usually at their best. There are further pleasant walks beside the Siagne river and around many of the pretty villages that can be found across this part of the Alpes-Maritime.

Drive south and you will hit the Mediterranean coastline within 10km, then Cannes (12km) with its glorious beaches is just a little further. Stroll along the famous Croisette promenade, visit one of the fashionable restaurants and bars and partake in a great choice of watersports. There are also plenty of boat excursions departing from Cannes, whether visiting the nearby Lérins Islands or taking a sunset cruise along the coast.

As well as exploring Cannes’ historic quarter, Le Suquet, don’t miss the lovely covered market, Marché Forville, a fantastic way to pick up some local produce. Food lovers should also visit Valbonne (11km) for its Friday morning market – it’s a beautiful and historic town set amongst landscapes of olive groves and woodland.

Other pretty places include the hillside village of Opio (13km) and Mougins (8km) with its flower-filled lanes and excellent restaurants, close to the Valmesque forests (also great for walkers) and the Royal Mougins Golf Resort.

Grasse (13km) and its perfumeries is another great day out or head towards the artistic villages of Vence and St Paul de Vence, both just under an hour away.

There’s more of the coast to explore around Antibes (22km) and Juan-Les-Pins (20km) or continue on towards Nice and Cap Ferrat, about an hour by car. Théoule-sur-Mer (17km) also offers superb scenery or drive across the Tanneron forests to Lac de Saint-Cassien with its summer watersports, lakeside beaches and all sorts of adventurous activities.

Watersport lovers won’t be disappointed with opportunities for wind-surfing, yachting, catamarans, kayaking, SUP boards and so much more. There is also a variety of boat excursions departing Cannes, including a lovely trip to the beautiful Lérins Islands.

  • Exactly as it appeared in the photos.

    Created on 15/10/2020

    We had a wonderful, 7 day stay in the villa. We were in Cannes with 4 generations of our family including 2 young men of 2 1/2 and 4 1/2 years old. There was ample space for everyone to engage or get away on their own based on their needs. We walked into town daily for the beach or lunch and had most dinners at the villa due to the lack of patience for long dinners by our grandchildren. The pool was used daily also. We would certainly return with our next large group holiday in Southern France. Lone (the owner of the villa) was wonderful and answered all of our questions.

  • Beautiful villa

    Created on 15/10/2020

    Beautiful villa with many homely touches and very well equipped. Pool area is fabulous and easy to keep an eye on younger members of the party even from the villa terrace. Amenities are within easy reach but if you want to walk make sure you are prepared for the climb. We would definitely book again.

  • A lovely spot

    Created on 15/10/2020

    Lovely villa with great access to Cannes and Grasse, but far enough away to be a lovely relaxing spot. The villa is lovely inside and out, the views are great and for us two families, the trampoline etc were great for the kids. It is up a pretty steep level winding hill, but that just means you get the great views! That bit of height also gives you some nice cooling breezes, which were very welcome! A lovely spot and very much recommended!

  • Magnificent house

    Created on 15/10/2020

    Everything was perfect and consistent with the photos. Gorgeous house, fabulous pool, stunning views. What more can be said ?

  • Highly recommend!

    Created on 15/10/2020

    We had a lovely stay here. The house is stylish, clean and well equipped and the pool and views from the terrace are stunning. The house is in a great location for exploring the Riviera. Communication with Lone was great throughout. Highly recommend!
