Overview

Wedding Venue Recommended Pool Ideal for Kids Walk to Village Ideal for Parties Stag/Hen Allowed

Villas which evoke such a feeling of calm, aesthetic harmony, beauty, sheer perfection are rare – Villa Jolie is one of those villas.

It sits on a hillside amidst pretty landscaped gardens overlooking woodland, with views up to the ancient village of Châteauneuf de Grasse, and just above its sister villa, Villa Zen. Each villa has been designed to feel quite private and independent from the other, and larger parties benefit from the possibility of booking both villas together and sharing the whole estate (Villas Jolie and Zen).

The magic is everywhere you look, whether indoors or outdoors furnishings, meticulous attention to detail, soothing schemes, original artwork…everything has received complete care and attention. This luxurious family home is incredibly spacious and light with plenty of creature comforts like air-conditioning, en-suite bathrooms, high quality equipment, a gym, a wood-fired pizza oven and a large gas barbecue. The gardens are filled with lavender, rosemary, olive trees and have a lovely children’s play area. The beautiful large pool and terraces complete the perfect picture.

If you can drag yourself away from all the comfort and beauty, everything here is at your doorstep. The village is a 10-minute walk away. Markets are held in Valbonne and Mouans Sartoux only minutes away, Antibes (with its Aquapark) and Cannes are only 18-22km away, the pretty village of Saint Paul de Vence is an easy 30-minute drive and Nice is just 35km away.

Villa Jolie is the perfect blend of both natural and man-made beauty with all the best that the French Riviera has to offer.

Good news! For a little extra, this property can be booked as a Vill’otel

Yey! Wait… what is that?
It’s the perfect combo of the privacy of your own personal villa, with all the luxury and convenience of a hotel.

What can be arranged?
Breakfast, cleaning, welcome drinks and hamper, plus more! Check the Extras tab for all the details.

The hilltop village of Châteauneuf de Grasse is a delightful setting surrounded by many quaint French towns and villages. Throughout the summer months there are many festivities and celebrations taking place including open air cinema screenings, the circus, antique fairs and vintage car rallys, which are all highly recommended and certainly worth exploring.

The neighbouring town of Valbonne boasts a charming market square with narrow streets and boutique shops, perfect for an evening stroll before enjoying the delicious Provençal gastronomy from one of the many restaurants on offer. Visit the local markets offering plenty of fresh and delicious produce, head to Valbonne early on a Friday morning for a coffee and croissant before purchasing lunch from the stallholders or visit Mouans Sartoux on Thursday, Friday or Saturday for more wonderful fruits, vegetables, meats and other delicacies. The famous perfume town of Grasse is also right on your doorstep, so a visit to the Fragonard perfume museum and factory is essential.

The Cote d’Azur possesses endless beaches with many water-sporting activities, water parks and attractions to be enjoyed. The chic town of Cannes with the port bustling with super yachts and the famous Promenade de la Croisette are certainly one of many towns to visit. Similarly, the old towns of Antibes and Nice both possess endless winding streets with market stalls, local delicacies and hand crafted artworks providing hours of exploration for all the family.

There’s a beautiful chapel nearby for a traditional service or a ceremony could take place on the lawns in the villa’s gardens accompanied by the scents of lavender, rosemary and thyme so redolent of the Riviera. The covered terrace near the olive trees is such a romantic spot for dining or a larger group could feast inside the villa or in the grounds.

There is a covered terrace by the summer kitchen which is suitable for a seated reception of up to 25 people.

Reviews

  • Very Nice!

    Posted by Sarah on 18/08/2018

    We as a family had a wonderful holiday. Villa Jolie was beautiful!

  • Wow!

    Posted by Ian M on 18/08/2016

    Beyond our expectations as pictures and words don't prepare you for this villa WOW location and fantastic amenities. Our age group was from 10 to 80 and everyone wanted to stay two more relaxing weeks. The lucky owner was the perfect host. Near enough to the Riviera far enough for peace and quiet. In summary we ate too much we drank too much and have many happy memories to bring home. First class.

  • Simply perfection

    Posted by Cathy C on 02/08/2016

    We enjoyed the most relaxing and peaceful holiday at this villa in a delightful part of France. On arrival we received the warmest of welcomes from the owner to a very well considered and comfortable family home which was nothing less than stunning and this theme continued for the duration of our stay. An excellently constructed information guide provided us with all we needed to know and more, including contact details for the friendliest and most reliable taxi service we have ever used. We visited a selection of the restaurants recommended and were never disappointed, but we especially enjoyed the Auberge Provencale in Valbonne. The highlight of this glorious property is undoubtedly the outside space which includes a gas BBQ that doesn't require the purchase of gas bottles, a pizza oven, large pool and lounger area and, an amazing garden. To laze around the pool surrounded by the scents of Rosemary, Lavender and Thyme was a unique experience for us and one we shall definitely return to.

  • Absolutely stunning! A perfect property, highly recommended

    Posted by Lisa B on 26/07/2016

    This property is amazing! It strikes a perfect balance of being luxurious and beautiful and yet comfortable and homely. Set in stunning surroundings, the house has everything you could possibly need and we felt instantly relaxed. The owner is charming, incredibly helpful and understanding to your needs. The house is wonderful for families. Parents with young children will be instantly reassured that the house is safe and there's lots to keep the little ones occupied. A truly wonderful house set in the most beautiful location. My boyfriend, a journalist who has edited many leading magazines, said that the best recommendation he could give it is that within 24 hours he was on the phone already recommending it to his friends.
    We will definitely be booking again and highly recommend it!

  • Stunning villa with excellent facilities and beautiful pool

    Posted by Kerry G on 09/07/2016

    We have just enjoyed a fabulous week in this luxurious villa. It was wonderful to wake up each morning to views towards the village of Chateauneuf in the distance and hear nothing but the sounds of birds and insects. The villa is very well equipped and designed with attention to detail. There are a variety of comfortable outdoor seating areas to choose from and the pizza oven was a huge success. The pool is large and salt water (no nasty chlorine) and sun loungers very comfortable with two huge sun parasols. Everything was so great that it was difficult to tear ourselves away. When we did, we enjoyed several visits to Valbonne (approx 15 minute car journey) to eat and wander round the Friday market. We did the walk from Le Bar-sur-Loup to Gourdon which has stunning views but was hard work in the July heat. Michelle (owner) was really helpful providing restaurant recommendations and very responsive if we had any queries during the week. Our only disappointment was that there are no restaurants or cafes in Chateauneuf itself. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this villa - it lived up to our expectations and more!
