Between Nice and Monaco, with sensational views of Cap Ferrat, this is luxury living on the Côte d'Azur in an architect-designed villa with state-of-the-art features and a level of service you would expect from a five-star hotel.

Set in the hills behind Villefranche-sur-Mer and looking out towards mesmerising Mediterranean landscapes, Villa La Rade exudes high-end elegance, yet always strives to respect its environmental heritage and surroundings. In the six en suite bedrooms, most with balconies or terraces, you will find organic linen whilst art can be admired throughout the home, thoughtfully curated by the Art Director to showcase new artists or specific themes. With its unique aspects, beautiful furnishings and incredible vistas, this exclusive abode is all about an understated sense of splendour alongside true escapism.

Spend your time relaxing in the spa with its sauna and heated indoor swimming pool crafted in natural stone, watch movies in the home-cinema and work out in the fitness room with Technogym equipment. Pour a glass of wine from the extensive French collection and step out to the upper balcony to look out at the glistening sea. Yet more views can be enjoyed from the heated outdoor swimming pool, especially when gathering by the poolside kitchen and plancha to dine al-fresco with family and friends.

A cook is on hand to prepare complimentary breakfasts alongside delicious meals with an emphasis on organic produce – the menus are overseen by a Michelin-starred chef (a table in his restaurant near St Paul de Vence can also be reserved). Furthermore, butler and housekeeping services are included as are airport transfers, 24/7 concierge and VIP access to a beach restaurant near Monaco – a front-row position is reserved!

Moments away from Villefranche-sur-Mer, one of the French Riviera’s most idyllic bays, explore the charming fishing village with its historic old town, pretty cafes and waterfront restaurants. Swim or kayak in the gorgeous bay at the town’s beach or take advantage of the numerous walking trails as far as Nice or Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat and beyond.

Indeed, the peninsula of Cap Ferrat is a paradise for hikers with its stunning landscapes and sea views, home to the iconic Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild. Then enjoy the beaches of Beaulieu-sur-Mer, dine Michelin-style in Èze, soak up the glamour of Cannes or drive to picture-perfect villages and market towns dotted across olive groves, woodland and hills such as Vence, Grasse and Valbonne.

From the possibility of a daily chauffeur service to helicopter and private boat tours, no doubt your dedicated concierge will be able to help you make the most of your stay in this beguiling part of the French Riviera.

In an exclusive French Riviera setting, Villa La Rade is set above Villefranche-sur-Mer, between Nice and Monaco in the Alpes-Maritimes department.

Villefranche-sur-Mer is just moments away - a short drive or 3km via winding roads and steps down to the heart of the old town, enjoying magnificent views as you descend. It’s such a charming place to spend time whether exploring the medieval lanes with shops and cafes, wandering around the marina, dining in a waterfront restaurant or climbing up to the citadel for more brilliant viewpoints. Head towards Plage Villefranche-sur-Mer for summer beach clubs and a gorgeous bay for swimming, then try out watersports such as kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding and parasailing.

Some incredible walks and hikes can be found in the region; from Villefranche-sur-Mer you can walk mainly along the water’s edge as far as Nice or to the beautiful harbour village of Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat on the wonderful Cap Ferrat. Yet more hiking trails can be found across this idyllic peninsula and a visit to Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild, one of the French Riviera’s most iconic villas, is also a must.

Go to other stunning places close by including Beaulieu-sur-Mer with its delightful boutiques, café terraces, atmospheric nightlife and superb beaches including Plage de la Petite Afrique, then drive onwards to Èze – enjoy fantastic vistas from its Michelin starred restaurant, Chèvre D’Or.

Discover Monaco’s atmospheric daily market in La Condamine district and explore the municipality’s historic sights as well as soaking up the glitz of Monte Carlo. Then of course there is Nice so close, a much-loved French city with a wealth of art galleries, museums, parks and markets.

Art lovers should visit Matisse’s La Chapelle du Rosaire and the famous contemporary exhibitions at Fondation Maeght in Vence and St Paul de Vence or continue onwards to enchanting market towns such as Grasse and Valbonne, two gems of the Côte d'Azur hinterland.

Not forgetting the glamour of Cannes and the old-town charm of Antibes as well as picture perfect villages dotted across the hills behind such as Mougins, Biot and Opio.

The Provençal way of life is one that’s deeply tempting for anyone who’s been feeling the need to get away from it all.
